Happy New Year 2018


 

Screenshot at Dec 31 21-18-50.pngHey all! Happy New Year!

         Out  with the old and in with the New right? I don’t know about you but this year has been something dramatic novel! I feel as if a lot of what has happened the past few years has been surreal.   Some great moments, among some very tying times. As if I was  someone else watching my life as it happened. I can not at this time go into details of everything. In short Its been hard emotionally, mentally, and physically. My faith has truly been tested. There were times I thought I wouldn’t’t be able to handle it. Sometimes you are forced to make hard choices. I had to yet gain put my books on hold for various reasons.

I was surprised tho this Christmas when I received a gift  from one of my biggest supporters. She gave me a Mac Pro laptop computer. It is not huge, but its is way more then I could have asked for or though to request.  In return she expects me to publish some books this year. The wonderful woman is going though so much right now and yet she invested in me. I sure hope I don’t let her or any of you down. The Mac is so different from what I am used to.  I do not have the programs, adaptor port, or mouse that I need yet. However, that will be rectified in a matter of days.  From what I have discovered so far the Mac pro is amazing. This touch pad is great. I feel so bad, that still haven’t published any books since  “God Supplies and Miracles Happen”.  I have been without a computer for several moths.  Plus Money has been extra tight. I feel truly blessed and completely surprised. I don’t  feel worth it somedays.  At times I felt I should give up… But then I am surprised you all still are  here believing in me. I am truly humbled! I pray I can live up to your expectations and then some. I have an amazing group people in my life and a wonderful family. I want to remind  you, God is bigger then the situations we are in. I sure pray this coming year is better for all of you.  I love you all I am truly truly grateful!  May this year  bring you  an abundance of blessings and open doors. God bless you today and always!😁

GoodBye: Aunt Christine


Christmas eve dinner we got a call that my aunt had passed away. She was so talented as an actress and voice actress. She was real, down to earth, goofy, yet mature beyond her years. She really grasped life. She touched so many people. She had a light inside her that has gone out. It is greatly missed. She inspired so many, including me… I don’t think I would have followed my dreams of writing if not for her pushing me.  She was born my dad’s youngest half sister. We grew up with visits and packages  from her.  I miss her dearly she was my first and best pen-pal; When she retired it was a sad day for everyone. Something she had to do. To stay under the radar she then after went by went by her maiden name Sandberg.  My dad, Stanley Roy Sandberg was one of her half sibling. Their dad and my grandpa was Waldo Sandberg. My dad  told us that he helped raise her. He was very close to her and has taken it very hard… Especially, after loosing his Oldest son Shane Sandberg to cancer in 2013 and now loosing his youngest sister this year around my brother’s birthday Just was a stab in the heart… Which made Christmas all that much harder…. I really feel for him… He has had a hard life but my dad is an Amazing man!

We kept in touch with aunt Christine our whole lives. We visited with her. But kept her secret. She for reasons that I never knew but totally understand she wanted to keep to just her family. I would love to tell you so much more about her, but she enjoyed her privacy and out of respect I will keep the info to my family. It is truly sad she had no idea how much she touched peoples’ lives. To often amazing people can’t see how amazing they are. She was a real treasure.  I was really close to her. I am so blessed, just like anyone else who knew her was. She was one of my best friends. I am so sad thinking about how much I will miss her letters and sweet notes. I’m so glad. I can say she was a part of my life, not because she was famous but because she was Amazing. She was always leaning, she loved: animals, children, nature, the wind, history, culture, reading, and writing. A huge inspiration♥ I didn’t matter to me if she was famous or not… She was my Amazing Aunt! And I have the letters to prove it.

In the past year she talked about how much she missed my Grandpa Waldo. He passed away years ago. I find my closure in thinking thinking about how happy she must be to be with Grandpa Waldo, and the joy she must be having in Heaven.

It is so strange reading all this stuff on the media…. It is a really odd feeling… Thinking That is my aunt they are talking about… I am so glad she was loved by so many tho!

Here are the Few articles I liked and think they got the Info most Correct (They are not all the same):

New Years Eve 2013 Open your heart.


1170671_407032979400812_1424229709_n

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

Merry Cristmas And Happy New Year! 2013


 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.

John 10:10

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 ི♥ྀ

Christmas Encouragement….


Hello Everyone,

This year has been hard for me, yet I’ve been blessed! So much has happened and changed since last Christmas. This year there seems to be something missing.  I can’t put my finger on what it is.  There is for sure a cloud of depression hanging over  people too.  But I am staying thankful.  I am making a effort to spread cheer and love. Along with  the reason for the season.  Keep in mind Christmas only comes once a year.  But it lives in my heart year round. Choose not to let the little things get to you. I know this time of year brings back bad and good memories for all. I want to encourage you to focus on the good.  Have regrets? Everyone does. But… Every day is a new day bringing new chances and choices. Don’t wait for the new year resolution to change. Do it now… So you can be happy sooner.  ♥ I know I make it sound so easy. But I know that it is not. I truly believe that if you look you can find reasons to be happy. Complain less and smile more… Every thing worth doing – takes effort! Learn to appreciate each opportunity to make a choice as they arrive.

This year again I didn’t finish the main books I’m working on. (Why work on more than one at a time? = to keep the writer block away.) I did pubish a smalk e-BOOK. And I am continuing to make progress on my main books almost daily.  I am working on them more determined  then ever now. So keep checking back with me and please don’t hesitate to ask me about them. ♥

Relationship research & Advice…..


After talking with many couples for research and curiosity. The hardest thing they have to overcome is the first admission of feelings. After that it continues to take great courage to trust another person with those feelings. But it doesn’t end there. When the couple can’t be or stay open about their feeling – the relationship starts to fall apart. It is often stressed Communication is the key to making it work. But compromising is equally important to them. Comparability is important too. But not as important. If you know me I’ve had boyfriends, a fiancée. Working on these books made me wonder is there only one person for us, what happens if you miss him or her? Does another come along or will you keep getting chances to win their heart? From what I have witnessed, there are many “will do’s” but also “My one & only”.

Each pairing is always different. That is why love / romance books are so popular and will never end. So many stories to tell. I’ve  also wondered is it true the person who confessed love first is top dog in the relationship? I don’t think so. I agree it takes a massive amount of courage to be honest like that. But I truly believe that the best relationships are ones where there is equal respect, honesty, and trust. The last person who confesses first was the key to the start of the New beginning together and gets huge kudos. Sometimes a per has to confess more then once or they take turns. Due to bad timing, or miss understandings. Both parties have equal responsibilities to do to give their best to keep the relationship good. It won’t always be equal. But that’s not an excuse to not try you best. I have a lot more to add to this, but another time another day.

I am encouraged by my research and I have hope my one will come eventually to stay in my heart and life. WHEN the time is right for me. In the meantime keep an eye here on info on my upcoming works. ALSO  keep coming back to my blog…  it’s in a constant   a work in progress as always but there for a reason. God bless you all.

Moving again…. Yikes…


Oh My I have so much to say, where do I start….

63150_510748232325343_1217082266_n

Yep,  I am in the process of moving again….  This makes the 6th move since I left for collage..  Oh my!!! six moves…  Wow…   >.< I am so ready  to be stable… I highly doubt this move will be my last move… I  am moving  from my the small house I am living in, to a  apartment about  an hour from where I am now..  I was dragging my feet on the move… Not wanting to  go… Even tho the move will open many  doors for me…  But  I changed my mind when I had a visit from the police a few days ago….

Yes the police…. I was doing my normal lazy  day   things, thinking how boring   the day was…  When I heard  someone passionately  knocking on my door.  My mind raced wondering whom could it be, as I hurriedly approached the door. The last thing I expected was to find a police officer  gun and teaser out… I  jumped  back in shock, holding tight to my  great Danes collar…  “Oh you do have a big dog, good.” He said..   “Yes I do.”  I replied at a loss for words… “We chased a man Thur your back yard,  do I have permission to  search  for him.” he asked. then asking  if I knew the man they were looking for.. I said no and  lead him though my house to the back yard… opening the doors since both his hands were full…   There were  four other police men and two state troopers.  Never again will I complain about being board. I was tense the rest of the day and my dog has been on edge too.. Lets just say I’m well ready to move now….  I do not know if they caught him or not. I sure hope so…….

The very next day I find out my move date has been pushed up. I  have 2 weeks, to pack and be ready.. Not hard.. I never really unpacked….   Moving is in my blood it seems… I just hoped with all my heart I’d be moving  to  get married, not to just move…..

It has been a hard  few moths.. My big brother passed away  the end of may….   I’m still mourning his loss in my future. We were not super close but, he was my hero. I am glad I still have my other brother  still..  He has recently re-married. Which is joyful occasion in the hard times my family has been having…  More good news my baby sister is getting married in Nov.. I am thrilled for her. I am going to go see her and some other  friends in October and of course stay for the wedding…    And even better news my parents finally, after three years, found a house to buy. I am so happy for them!!! I truly am!!!  God keeps His word.!!!

My new place has a new refrigerator, if you haven’t spoken with me, mine has been  bad for a while and I could not afford a new one. God has answered most my prayers….  He is still working on others….  I know I can count on Him tho.. He never lets me down.

As for my work, I am writing a lot more,  and will have even more free time to write at my new place.  I will be able to text again, if I choose to get a new cellphone…   I am  in the process of editing my blogs with the help of a friend whom I am paying . I  want to better represent my work on my blogs. However when I write my blogs I  hardly edit them due to lack of time.. I am trying to  change that.

I have been on maplestory and wartune a lot in the mornings and at night when I have time to spare… My energy hasn’t been much at all and I  feel spread thin…  I have been very sharp with people and my first reactions have been poor unlike my  real thoughts and feelings…. I am ashamed of them…   I have hurt a dear friend, but on a good note I am leaning to voice my  opinions more, and my feelings, instead of  being just a peacemaker… I don’t know  if its  worth it or not, but I want to have the passion for life I once had. I am tired of just drifting and  pleasing others only.. I don’t know why I keep getting lost in doing so.. But I am working on my  work goals now… And I will stick to it.  Please watch me, encourage me, and support me on my endeavor with prayer…

Please, do something silly to make yourself smile, and laugh. It is so important to remember to  smile, Life is hard, we have to  find  some joy in it it…   Surprise a  friend with a gift,   do something special for your self. You are worth it.. Do not let anyone  determine who you are. Only you control your thoughts and actions… Take responsibility  for them and don’t have regrets…

Well I think that about covers it all in a summery….  I will check back in with you  after Sep 3rd  once I’m moved…

God bless you today and always, and I pray he keeps you all safe…  ~hugs~

Life Is a Gift!


Hello My Dear Readers,

Life is so precious, and so many people go through each day taking it for granted.  They miss the simplicity and beauty of everyday things like a cool breeze blowing past;   the sun and moon rising and setting;  the endless blanket of stars, shimmering in the dark sky;  the unique  variety,  charm and even  humor in all the  creatures, plants, and bugs;  the collage of colors  all around us: in the earth, and in art.   Let us not forget the poetic beauty of people. We all have wants, dreams, goals, fears, insecurities,  good qualities and bad …At times we all fail to stop and enjoy every sweet moment life  presents us, we get so caught up in worries and needs, we forget what we  have, or received… We can easily forget what is really important.  It’s those moments that make life worth living…If you are blessed with people in your life that you care about; make time for them, tell them how much you love them. Time is limited! There is always stuff going on, always something that has to be done…Reasons to be sad, or upset….Don’t wait for the perfect time, a clean house, etc… You don’t know what tomorrow may bring. Good or bad, one should try and make the most of every day!  Every chance they get to share time or things with the ones they love…..   Bad things happen, we are not unbreakable, people move, and pass on to heaven or hell.  I don’t mean to be morbid and a lot of people don’t think about the possibility of no tomorrow, or no more life with that person or people we cherish…   Life can change suddenly; are you happy with your current choices? Don’t live in the past or dwell on things you can’t change….  Look to the future and aspire to make the most out of what you have….   You may not know me, or what I have gone though, that is ok… You don’t need to in order to understand what I am saying…  I’ve been through hell and back, and I wouldn’t wish that on any one… So please learn from me. Don’t live without joy…   When you wake up, be glad you woke up!  Be glad you have a new day with new opportunities, new chances…  Take time to think things over before doing them….  “Is that persons bad attitude worth upsetting my good mood”, “will I regret doing or not doing this?”, “will this make them happy or mad”, “will this help or make things worse”, Get the picture?  It is a lot easier said than done, but choose not to waste a minute of your life. It is good to relax and have fun, it’s important to your health to do your best not stress…   I   know how important it is to embrace life…  Everything can change in the blink of an eye…  Don’t fret the little things, but look for the light shining through the rain cloud instead.

 

I have met so many people who have been very sad lately, and some very good reasons to be… But don’t let your sadness cloud your life, and don’t let it steal your joy…. Do not let yourself get lost in a hole of disrepair, hate, resentment, or anger…  You are such a special person and are such a blessing to this world…. I pray you find your purpose, your joy and take time to smell the roses….     Because life is such a gift, such a blessing that so many people don’t get the pleasure of living….   Life is the ultimate adventure, the ultimate challenge!!!

 

I challenge you to make the most of your life, not for me but for yourself… I wish you find joy with living even though life can be complicated and very rough…..

 

God bless you abundantly!!! ~John 10:10
