Hello, it has been a while… Welcome back!!
First of all I want to say that I am sorry for not posting more. Even tho writing gives me joy and fulfillment, I just haven’t had the desire for it as of late. I’ve been dealing with a lot of emotions and life changes. My heart is still healing from the losses this year. I won’t go into them at this time, I will in the future. I did not want my work to be brought down to the level I was on. It is not is place I wish anyone to be in. Not only that but there is real chaos going on in our country and world.
Usually I do a reflection of the year and all things good for Christmas. Then around New Year’s I discuss all that I want to see and accomplish. I had full intention of doing just that. Evey time I tried, I just couldn’t put my thoughts and feelings into words. Honestly, my heart just wasn’t in it. I did start and do still have some blog drafts.
However, they are not really life related. Mostly all just game talk. I’m sure those will be fun. I’ll get around to posting them probably in Febuarry. I again I just haven’t had the desire to write. Shoker I know!! Here’s why…
God willing. I say that very seriously. So much is going on right now the last thing on my mind has been sitting at a computer. Every day is so important and every person is a gift. I am still fighting my own sadness. Yet also saddened by all the hate and division going on right now all around the world.
It isn’t right nor healthy… I was raised that our words and our actions matter… That we have to be productive, and responsible. We have to be people of our word, loyal, honest, and examples of Jesus’s love. Why? Because it is right – Because it makes a difference and Because it is what would Horner God. He sent Jesus His so for us to be blessed out of love. (John3:16) We are to treat others how we wish to be treated. You say you may not care… But I thinks you do… No-one likes being neglected and treated poorly.
You nay not feel like you deserve love, nor feel loved. However you are loved and no one does. That’s why Jesus did what he did for us!!!
Now back to tbe chaos…. I still have a strong faith in God. Despite all the drama, and conflicts going around. It is so much more then a game of he said she said. People are attacking people, friends turning aginst one another over various reasons big and small. An example being: difference of opinion. I don’t want nor approve of violence or hate crimes.
People are not communicating well, even on the same sides. Things are being taken out of content and some are being cut off and silenced. For what? I am truly scared of the future at hand. We all have a choices to make…
I am not happy about all the forced silences going on. It just doesn’t feel right. No matter what side your on. Violence and muteing has never been a good thing in my opinion. I won’t go further into that. I am glad I can freely share my words with you all still. I love our country and I’m very concerned about the future of it. We all have choices to make.
All I can do is be myself, stay positive, stay strong and keep praying. I hope we find some positive chances soon. Remember that you matter. You may not feel like you do, but I’m telling you that you are a treasure. You may not see it but the ones around you do. Even if they don’t tell you. I am telling you right now-
I encourage you to seek reasons to smile. Even if the reasons are small. Remind those you care about how much they matter to you as well. Try not to stay angry or hurt others on purpose. Treat others how you wish to be treated. Every day you wake up is gift. It may not be easy but we have to move forward. We do that one step at a time. We may not be happy and hardships are sure to come. But you can move forward if you choose to. It is harder to let life pass you by and have regrets Dont live a life of regret and anger.
We have to encourage eachother and set good examples of Christ Jesus’s love. Be sure sisters and brothers in Christ we are being watched and judged. We are humans but we are called to spread the gospel and we can only do so by developing a personal reallationship, truly knowing Jesus as our friend and reading God’s word the Bible.
Thank you for stopping by and giving me a moment if your time to share my thoughts and feelings with you. I am truly grateful for you.

I had my second follow up with my primary doctor. After going from 25mg last week to 50mg of Metropol I’m doing much better. Yay! The only issue now is my blood is too thin on the new medication. We will work on that and I’ll be re-tested next week. Fun! Thank God it’s only a finger prick. I feel so blessed that I am doing much better and my situation wasn’t worsening. I know so many of you out there have rough lives, much harder than mine. My heart breaks for you and my prayers go out to you!
I’m finally over the sinusitis, which was a pain without antibiotics… Yay- for a stronger immune system tho! I’m still having a little energy issue… Partly because it is so hot and I’m not sleeping so great still. I miss air conditioning! Summer heats are always draining for me. Even my dog is drained… But at least my heart rhythm is good. As well as my blood pressure and pulse! Praise God! All this excitement has got me out of the house more and talking to people again. It is good to feel good!!
I’m getting back into the swing of things, working on my websites, books, and apartment more. I am reconnecting with friends. Along with adding more lets play The Sims 4 vlogs. I’ve been reluctant to mention them because to me It is just a hobby. My way of practicing talking to people while having fun.
(You can find the links at Twitter Amyjane27)
I will also do a personal vlog soon. I meant to do one today but my errands took longer then I thought they would. I am new to video blogging. I prefer to write, but after all my computer technical issues with my books… I found vlogging is a good way to take notes as well as communicate with people. You can find my personal vlogs on DeeplyRootedInHim.net on our YouTube channel only. Since I openly talk about my faith in Jesus there. Here, I try to keep you updated and talk about life without preaching as some say. I have a vlog Channel set up for this web page but the only video there’s the one from authorpalooza a couple years ago. Eventually, I’ll share the link for it here.
Anyways, thanks everyone for your support and encouragement! You all inspire me to be a better person and to work hard!

Hello! ^_^ (Happy smile)
How are you my dear readers? Just jump right in…. So I told you last time I wrote that I was working on preparing “God Supplies and Miracles Still Happen” for Global Publishing… Well I finally did it!!! I prepared two paper backs books 38 pages each, and one e-book.. I did away with the coil bound version.. I know a lot pf people liked it. However the pages got caught and tore to easy… Out of the two types I had before it was the worst quality… But for peopel who like larger font, This i created an 8.×5 I ordered that and the much improved 6×9. I had before… They looked awesome! Other then some formatting errors and small typos… All in which I fixed and have now updated… They rocked! I was super pleased with both! I am so so picky….. But – This will be the final updates…
~~~~And look ~~~~
Here is the e-mail they sent me about the books… Now- all I have to do is click yes, and then It is a matter of weeks, till I find out they say yes.. (I am standing in Faith they will) I followed all the rules and requirements. I am quite sacred actually…. When this goes through anyone who wants, will have a little insight into my personal life and walk of faith.. It makes me more scared and excited to finish the main book which I have been working on again. The e-book could be approved any day now, tho I think the print books look way better.. I am excited!
Also There happens to be a book sale!!!
20% Sale Code: HAMMOCK14
I think that is God… If you want to get a copy go for it… and God bless you today and Always!!
Hello Dear Friends,
Wow what a crazy year it has been…. I can not believe all that has happened this year… This year seems like it was several years all wrapped up into one.. I forget what all I’ve written about… Last year I was angry and upset, I was lost and confused, I was drained and empty feeling, and it lasted up till November this year. I had a lot of falling outs with people and a lot of misunderstandings. I learned I suck at explaining things in words. I should stick to writing.. lol.. Even then is hard to express myself. I am happy now. I gave up trying to make things perfect, now I am just enjoying what life dishes out. What God has for me… That is really the best way to go… Falling into God’s will helped me fall back into my dreams and my joy. My passion is to help people via my written work and by me being me. That makes me happy…
I lost a lot this year but I gained so much in return. For the first time in many years I’m happy with who I am… I keep telling you: Only you can make yourself happy. And that’s mostly true.. If you lean to let go of all the hurt and stress you hold inside, and Let God in, is one way. Another is you can choose to be happy, choose to look for the good in every bad situation. Only you know what is holding you back and keeping you down…. Also having that someone who has faith in you and is constantly encouraging you and helping you makes a huge difference. I don’t know what I’d do without those awesome people in my life…
I may wear my heart on my sleeve, but its because I want you all to feel loved. There are so many different kinds of Love…. And I love you all. My heart was made big just so I could love you all. 😛 Some of you settle for just Like… Being liked is good enough… But you are better than that. You deserve to be loved… No one is perfect… We all mess up… That doesn’t mean we don’t deserve love….
I don’t know what I was planing on saying, I don’t know if anyone even reads this… Take this next year with a seed of hope.. Don’t let last year get you down. Tomorrow is a new day -wait better yet- a New Year!! So —- Make new choices… Make good changes to your life that will make you happier.. Don’t wait till midnight to do so. Do it tonight. Every one is suffering in one way or another, everyone has issues, some worse then yours believe it or not.. You are blessed and lucky to have what you do… If I could ask you to do only one thing and you would’ I’d ask you to let you wall down and let people in… We are made to need people… So many complain about not finding love…. But if you won’t let your walls down to let anyone in then it will never happen… I don’t just mean your one true love, it counts for friends and family love too… If you stay guarded, no one can get close… And you will keep staying empty and lonely.
Don’t Give up on your dreams, fight for them, I don’t believe anything worth doing or reaching comes easy….. If only it was…. Then life would be boring?? :p
Thanks for all the great memories this year, and the adventures God….. I thank you for tomorrow and t new year you are giving us… I pray it brings Joy, closure, togetherness, and fulfillment like never before!!!!
My biggest accomplishment this year was getting closer to God and publishing my personal short story
ღ╮❤╭ღ╯ Amy Jane ╰ღ╮❤╭ღ╯
I wish you, no matter where you are or, who you are with A wonderful Christmas!! And A Blessed New Year!!!
I was not sure where to start, I kept getting sidetracked with life. I didn’t have time to make an image for you……
Here I go…
This is my favored time of year for many reasons Such as: The weather and the fact that I love the holiday season. Thanksgiving through New Year’s… All because of: the giving, sharing, thankfulness, anticipation of new, beginnings, joy, and so much more in the air. I love the lights, the trees, the food, and most of all the family you generally get to spend time with. Family, close friends and relatives.. (Usually)
Sadly though, this time of year brings stress, anger, and loneliness to a lot of people. This is the first year in a a couple of years I have not felt so lost in emotions…. We all worry about if we have enough time to do what we want to do, do we have enough money, will our friends and families enjoy our efforts. And then there are those of us who do not have the pleasure of having people in our lives to share this time with and it brings out anger, resentment, and deepens the loneliness and pain. I know this all too well over the past few years for sure. They have been hard… I barely celebrated. But there is something really special. No matter what every Christmas Eve.. I get filled with this amazing peace and my heart fills with unexplainable thankfulness and all. I find myself staring at the Christmas tree and or lights for hours not thinking anything just in awe… It all started when I awoke from the coma in 1997 Just 2 days before Christmas… Maybe because of the many close encounters with death I am more sensitive to the holidays… This year it wasn’t my closeness with death that was faced. I lost my oldest brother to cancer…. But then in November my youngest sister Got married…. Such a wide variety of emotions…. I know for many this was a very hard year, but many of us have been blessed despite the troubles… Such as my parents finding a house after almost 4 years of searching… It never amazes me what God can do….. I know next year I and many others, feel it will be a year of closure and togetherness.. I am looking forward to that tho I feel the past few years have gone by way to fast… I hope to share some good things with you in the future tho. Like some books in the next year!!!
I wish you, no matter where you are or, who you are with A wonderful Christmas!! It is not about the Receiving, it’s about the joy of togetherness, the Giving of love and companionship… So many I know have been blessed with wonderful mates while others are still alone.. Our time will come singles! God’s timing is perfect and He or she will be exactly what we need… And more then we could ever want!!
This was supposed to be a sweet note of love, sorry I went on… I pray if you don’t know Jesus yet you take the opportunity to ask into your heart tonight… Don’t waste time waiting for the right moment or to be perfect. He loves you as you are and there is no better timing then now… Having a relationship with Jesus, God, and the Holy Spirit is the best Gift I could share with anyone… God after all gave the best Gift Jesus… And that is what Christmas is all About… Celebrating his Birth, His life, and His Death so that we may be free of the chains of sin and be blessed with Eternal life!!! It’s easy just read this out loud.
“Dear Heavenly Father, I acknowledge I need you. (You do need Him) I welcome you Jesus into my heart, for you are the way and the truth and the light. (John 14:6) Please forgive me of my sins and be a part of my life form now on.. Thank you Amen” Now go tell someone what you did.
The devil comes to steal form you, to Kill you, and to Destroy you, but I come to bring you life and to bring it Abundantly.
You are Loved,
ི♥ྀ Amy Jane ི♥ྀ
ღ♥ღ Ladies/ Men there is one Person who Loves you unconditionally and will never leave you no matter what, He is always with you, and only a call away.
His name is Jesus Christ!! ღ♥ღ
You are never alone, He is always with you through all you suffer and enjoy!! The man / Woman, God gives us a mate to share out physical, emotional connection on earth. to fill that lonely vibe. But Jesus can reach the depths of your heart that no one else can… No matter how wonderful the love you have with your “special someone” Is. With Jesus in your Conner that love you have if you have it is amplified.. If you don’t have it yet, don’t give up it will come in due time. Let Jesus love you while you wait..
Your never alone, unless you wanna be. I know it feels like the loneliness is to much at times and you may not be able to survive the pain… Been there done that… But God’s Abundant love filled holes in my heart I never knew I had.
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:or every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. ~Mathew 7:7-8
Don’t value your worth on if you have someone special or not. Because you are special, a real gift, a Joy!! No one is perfect, so don’t call yourself a loser or other names.
“For all have fallen short of the Glory of God.” Romans 3:23
God does not make mistakes! He made you.
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; and before you came forth out of the womb I sanctified you, and I ordained you a prophet unto the nations. ~Jeremiah 1:5
He loves you and if you let Him, He has a plan for you. One with Love and all things Good.. Even in the mist of your worst times. God is by your side ready to lift you up, to carry your burdens, and to give you what you need. Just ask!!
The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving kindness have I drawn thee. ~Jeremiah 31:3
But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 5 he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. ~Titus 3:4-7

Dear Santa Jesus!
Can I sit on your lap and tell you what I want froe Christmas? I want all the people I love to feel: loved, special, Important, Needed, Joyful, and most of all Healthy! So many people are struggling not just emotionally but financially, with health, and they lack Joy Even I am a bit lonely and lost. Life is far from easy; I was letting it take me for a ride and had quit fighting for what You have promised me. “Life, Abundantly” John 10:10
You my Lord gave me the best Gift any one can receive: Your son Jesus Christ! The Christ in Christmas! Because Of Him we have Christmas, A day to celebrate our loved ones, to share gifts, and joy, with a thankful heart. How Easy is it for us to Forget! Without Christ I would be lost, starved of Hope. But with Him I have all I need! ~Philippians 4:19 ~
So what else is there to want… I would like people to find ways to get a long, to discover the power of their words and lean how to speak Good instead of Bad over their lives. Help me be a better representation of Who you are! Help me Love others, forgive, Help when I speak and write so that I may glorify You! The Lord who has Given me Life literally! Help all who are lacking this season to find their needs met, now and in the New Year! Lead me, Guide Me, Teach Me! I mean that whole heartedly. I have needs in my heart only You need to know, and I give them to you. Please take care of the ones I love near and far, Keep them safe, Bless them with: Favor, Health, Joy, Mercy, Grace, Forgiveness, Money, Love, Peace inside and out, Perseverance, Passion, Patients, and all else we need or are lacking.
And Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! For Another year full of experiences good and bad because they caused growth in areas I needed, for all the Love ones that have supporting me, and all the People who have blessed me in any way! I love you Lord, Abba Father!
Your Precious Daughter,
Amy Jane Sandberg
I have notice so many people are hungry now days. Not hungry by the lack of food, but emotionally, mentally, and physically. People are searching for something that will fill where they are lacking. But in things that won’t really help. Such as: Sex, alcohol, gambling, false idols.
We as the human race are at the time of major changes personally and globally. Change is hard and so many people are looking for something to cling to sustain them, especially, now around the holidays.
I noticed around Christmas I begin to think about the year past, all I didn’t accomplish, achieve, and am still lacking… I specifically seem to dwell on failures and what I don’t have yet in my life. For example, I should have a book done by now, I wish I had my boyfriend here to share the holidays with. As a result; I get more sensitive, cranky, and lonely….
But then Christmas Eve rolls around and I become extremely thankful for what I have, and all that has happened, and those in my life…. The holiday’s takes a toll on us: Families, friends, money, gifts you want to give and get, trying to prepare the perfect atmosphere for a few days….. It can be very overwhelming… One becomes desperate, anxious, hungry….. It just has to be “PERFECT”.
This year more than other years I realize people seem more then desperate, they are starving for acknowledgment, closeness, success, achievement.. Yet most are going the wrong way. Instead of turning to God, they are running to what they think will fill the void, only to find it growing deeper…
I have also realized that Christmas is one month out of the year, better yet only for my family about 36 hours of festivities… Then next we bring in the New Year, and the cycle starts over…. Nothing really changes……
This year I am choosing to skip the pity party that seem to have already started and go straight to that thankful atmosphere. By doing so, I lose a lot of wasted time, and by choosing to be happy, I hope I can help others be happy around me…. But it starts with a choice. I have to choose to change. It is not going to be easy, but nothing really worth it is easy… I am not going to dig a hole and burrow in my emotions; instead I am asking God for hand up, and joy to replace the stress, grief, loneliness, and frustration….
I am filling up on God’s word, I am eating the preaching’s of the pastors I love and drinking in the scriptures my friends are sharing… I am not close to becoming full yet, but I am also not starving anymore, not in the way I was before. I wish I could feed everyone this way too. So that they will not be hungry anymore! I pray for all the lost sheep out there. The people who don’t know what they are looking for…
I want to be a good example of Christ and who He is, so that the hungry people around me can be fed…
I urge you to look to God to fill your plate. Not the internet, not the tv, not shopping, nor in other people. What you’re looking for can only be found in one place… In Christ! I do not know how to explain it however once you let Christ in your life changes and you no longer fill empty, if you truly let Him in… I still feel lonely, not in the same way…
Don’t wait till Christmas to unwrap this Gift. It’s yours now, waiting with your name on it. For God so loved YOU, He gave His only Begotten son, Jesus Christ, so that who so ever believes in Him, shall have everlasting life. ~ John 3:16
If you already have Him in your heart I suggest you reevaluate your relationship and do as I am and submerse yourself in His word! Give yourself the best Christmas of all, and remember the reason for the season. He is the greatest comfort!
God Bless you,
♥ Amy Jane ♥
