There was a massive fire only a street away from our house! It was super scary!!! It was started by a bad power-line. The flames ran up the side of the mountain and on to the bluff we live… It was defiantly life changing… Fear is powerful, it is brain numbing too at times… I rarely have faced a situation where I lost the power to think. I was mentally and physically frozen for a few minuets. So I prayed… Because that is what I do when I know not what to do, I ask God. And then I made mental notes of where the animals were, where what I needed to save was… I was faced with the reality. It is really interesting what really goes though your mind when faced with the question- There is a fire, what is the one thing you save? If the fire reached us, I would loose so many items, some collectors, none of them as important as the my family and pets… The first thing I thought of, was I have no pet carrier for the cats, what will I do with them? Let them outside to fend for themselves if it comes to it, animals are smart and they have instincts would they make it? No… I’ll try and wrap them in a towel put them in the car hope I don’t drop them on the way down… If I must I will… I told myself Then I quickly found my dog leash, and got her downstairs. (I live on a second story with stairs on the outside.) I kept a close eye on the fire. I have to say the Firemen were fast, brave and awesome! The news said we had only seven fire trucks, but I counted about thirty-three of all types.. There was even helicopters working hard to put the fire out!
I was about to pack up and get us all of us out of the house but then I looked over to the empty field next door and saw about ten deer peacefully eating grass and sleeping. After that I felt peace and I knew we would be safe. Just then the wind shifted and instead of blowing north it stated to blow west… Which was good! Soon after that They had the fire out near the homes, but the fire moved fast west… The poor firemen worked well into the night and into the next morning to get the massive fire out.
We were so blessed not to have any homes or people hurt in our small town. The firemen did an awesome job! God is so good! Sometimes still when I see smoke I quickly go over the emergency list I have prepared in my mind, what I need to do etc as i it were a natural reaction… Fear is a funny thing and very powerful… This whole thing was super scary but a great lesson of faith and a real test. One which I am glad we didn’t have to take!

Hello dear readers,
I finally got around to editing the links and my work page! Whew… It’s a pain to do, I’m not entirely happy with it. But my coding skills are limited… @.@ Anyways I added a few books I am working on. Normally I would do a full detailed progress report with lots of fun little details. But I am taking care of my nephew this week, he is currently occupying his self with the movie Frozen… His favorite character is Olaf of course… One of Mine too. 😛 Great Movie you should see it….
So I have to keep this short..
Some of my books are on hold, oddly enough all my fictions.. Due to a past virus I had my updated versions were deleted from my laptop. However I was smart and backed them up on my External Hard drive… The bad news is, since the move I can not find the power cord to it… I had kept them together but somehow the cord has vanished… I however was smart enough to back up my faith based books in 2 other places. So I am currently working on those when Time permits.. Those being: “Miracles Still Happen Today”, “Deeply Rooted In Him”, and “Amy Jane’s Mini Assortments”. The latter being a book I was able to compile really quickly… I was not gonna announce it, I was gonna leave it as a surprise. But since They are all coming along so nicely I couldn’t help but share my Joy. Although I seem to be busier then usual, and i have a small desk… I am doing a lot better with staying focused and writing more often then I used to.
I long so much to finish them as soon as possible, and I get so stressed when I want to write and can’t. However Life is precious and people are too. So I tend to choose experiences and people over time alone writing if presented the option. God’s timing is perfect so I try not to get mad at myself for not being done yet. I want them to be perfect… Well as perfect as I can be and I am looking for publishers on two of the three books too… Tho I will probably self publish also…. I want to follow God’s will.. I am really pleased with how “God Supplies and Miracles Happen” Turned out! You need adobe reader for the e-book.. I’m debating paying the money to get it on Amazon, Nook and ibooks…. What do you think? Should I? And I adore how the print book turned out… You should totally check that out. http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/AmyJane27
Well that is it for now…
Lots of Love, God Bless you today and always!
