Hello Fellow friends,
Well, I am home now but I had a wonderful time with my man and his lovely family. I learned so much about him and all of them. We did so much with and without his family. My man and went on dates and walks. It was really nice. I got him some shirts he liked and some collector books he wanted. He got me a Totoro purse and wallet and some lotion and body spray too. It is not about the things, to me, the gifts are special because they are from the one I love! As for the rest of the family, they have to wait for Christmas…
When we spent time with his family as well as doing outings and everyday tasks.. We didn’t go to the beach or Disneyland but we did go to Medieval Times! I hadn’t been there since I was thirteen for my friend’s birthday in Florida. Here are some of the pictures I took. I hope they don’t mind me sharing them.
One weekend we watched movies and games. I even exchanged birthday and Christmas gifts as well with him. One of the weekends we had an outdoor bbq, watched a movie on a projector and did some rock painting, played soccer and other outdoor games.
I really enjoyed the one on one time with his mom too. We had a nice heart to heart talks. She even gave me a very sweet heartfelt gift from Starbucks as a surprise one night! It is special for so many reasons. It has all the state specialty emblems, I collect cups, it was a surprise, it showed she cared and was thinking of me. I wish I could have done so much more for them! I wish I had got to know his dad more tho too.
I stayed for almost three weeks. When I had free time alone worked on writing my books in progress.
I can’t believe it is only a few days from Thanksgiving!! I look forward to coming back there often. It helps that the man I love has family in California. I totally felt at home with his family and in California. I was really nervous about staying with them but I think it went well. There was so much more I had wanted to do with them and for them. I miss them all so much. His family is my family as well. That’s how I feel in my heart. I never felt uncomfortable or out of place. I just wish I could bring them all back with me! It would sure make things easier for us all. California is one of the few states that I wouldn’t mind moving to. Though I am unable to take permanent residence there mainly because of my Medical specialists and health care requirements.
I can not believe I had to say goodbye. It really broke my heart. I cried so much. I keep telling myself it is not over tho and we will be together again soon. The most important thing is I have so many wonderful memories from this trip and all the trips I have been on this year. I can not express how much I appreciate everyone and everything. To me making memories and spending time with the ones you care about is more important than anything else. Remember to take time for your loved ones and friends as well! I feel so refreshed and drained at the same time.
Stay safe and God blesses you today and Always!!

Oh Hello there,
It is that time again right… The time to update you on all that is happening… I can’t believe how fast time flies…
*First off: After along debate with myself and some other people. I looked into globally publishing my faith short story “God Supplies and Miracles still Happen”. God’s timing is always perfect. Before when I had looked into publishing on Amazon and Barns and Noble it would have cost me $200.00 each. But when I looked into it again recently I saw it has now become free…. Seriously??? Woot!!!
So I started proof reading my book that was out for sale and re-formatting it for the global copy and I caught some big errors… Some how I had published the wrong copy of my book… How embarrassing… I sure hope no one bought any of those bad copies… The story is still good. However some key things had errors. Such as: my parents rode a train to San Francisco not a plane… Since I had some how deleted the better copy I had to start editing all over again… This turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I increased the book by almost 10 pages… And I rearranged some things, so it flows much better. I sent the final copy to someone I trust to edit it further.. When I get it back I’ll re check it, make the appropriate changes and re-publish it on http://www.LuLu.com
Since the books I have up are glitched. I removed the links to them for now. Once I get it back I will re format those books and put in the new content… I have to do it for both books. You will be able to order copies of these exclusively from LuLu when I put them back up… And Now I’ll have a third copy… It will be saddle stitched. I have to order a copy to see how it turns out, which can take up tow weeks, and once I give the go ahead they will send it to their approval team to make sure everything is good and it is presentable to be mass produced. That can take up six to eight weeks. EEk! Once it is approved, which I know it will be, The book will be available for sale and at more then the two places. I am so excited and Scared!!!! I never dreamed this would be so realistic and my dream is finally coming to it’s beginning… I know some of you have been waiting literally years…
*Second: Now that I have that taken care of I am back to working on the other three books. I am honestly re- Thinking Amy Jane’s Mini Assortments… I still wanna do it, however. I am not sure to what scale and what exactly do I want the contents to contain now. I just don’t seem like the grand example of my work as I first thought it to be.. So while I barley work on that I am currently working on finishing “Deeply Rooted In Him” The next book I hope to publish and by the end of the year too…. And of course I’m working on my main. “Miracles still Happen Today”. Both are coming along very nicely. I am debating changing the name, of ” Miracles Still Happen Today”. I’ll cross that road once it is done..
*Third: I found 3 of my fictions… Two of the three are mostly up to date, which I am pleased to have printed notes on… And one that is really out of date. I don’t think I will dare even touching that one till much latter.. But now when I get burned out and fried from working on my personal and faith stories I now have another set of outlets to work on and relive my stress. I am so happy about that.. But Don’t get your hopes up.. They are far from being done and I still have some plot kinks to figure out Before get get to deep into the story.
*Lastly: Thank you so much for reading and caring about my work. It means so much to me and encourages me, even-tho I revive so little comments. I am so pleased my ambition and passion matters to you even if it is the tiniest bit… ~HUGS~

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,

Hello My Friends,
Being Sick Sucks!! You think being sick I could get a lot of writing done, but my head was so cloudy I couldn’t think straight. But Yesterday and Tonight I got back to work.. I feel like my books are taking forever.. WAIT they are… Editing them takes a lot of time and I am not sure if they are even good to anyone but me. I really wish I had a some one I trusted to read them and edit for me. But every one I know is really busy. And have things of thier own they keep putting off..
So please bear with me. Though it is a slow process it is well worth the effort. (I think) with every edit and addition I make the better the book gets and the more I thing you all will like it. I am gonna work very hard for the next several months of the year to finish at least one of the three books I am mainly working on. Right now it looks like the book will be “A Crimson Star” or “Miracles Still happen Today”
To be honest “Miracles Still Happen Today” is harder to write because I get all emotinal when I remember the past. And the people I ask for references take a long time to get back to me. But it will get done eventually.. The other books I am working on are much easier to write, due to the fact they are 100% fiction… And thus what ever comes to mind is ok..
So bear with me and pleas support me by at least rerading what I post here and giving me feed back.
