Out with the Negitive and In with Joy


In reflection…I has been a good and a bad year…. The past moths alone have been horrid….But the moths before were awesome! In October I broke my foot… October 18th…. It is still in a boot…
>.< I am to see a specialist because its healing so slowly… My Dr. was concerned I may need to have a pin put in it temporarily… Or I may end up with an extra joint in my foot he said… (I’m praying for complet healing to maifest) It has really sucked not being able to drive… And I miss my local friends… On top of that a few of our pets have passed away… (because of cancer, brain, and other issues) Then My aunt Christine Passed away too… Right before Christmas…  ( believe they are all in Heaven healed and whole and I’ll see my pets and aunt again) I am not the only one going though issues… Some of my friends and family are too… And it breaks my heart…

But- The whole family got to be together for the first Christmas in 5 years! What a blessing! As for a gift to my parents… My sister Amanda and her Husband Kevin gave my parents sibling kittens… They are beautiful and they needed a good home… My paper back is being sold via Barns and Noble which is so exciting and scary too!

It is so easy to get mad at God for allowing the hurt in our lives… It has really piled up… But God has done so many good things too… Hes healed me more time then I could count, he take care of our needs when we lack… Hes brought my whole family into on state once more, and He’s blessing my baby Sister Amelia with a little Girl in February…The blessings out number the hardships… But when you are in the middle of a storm all you can see or feel is the hurt and pain…. I love Psalms 103, and Psalms 97. They are such amazzing chapters all about what God can and will do for you… Like Romans 8, Ephesians 6, Daniel 3, and Hebrews 11. They are all about what God can and will do for you if you have faith, if you obey Him and if you will listen… It is not really that hard… Right??? Wrong… Feeling bad…. Is a trap once you are feeling bad… It is so hard to find happiness again.. You have to choose to be happy, to allow yourself to be happy. You have to fight the lies of you being worthless and unimportant, that things will only get worse… You have to look for the good… Sounds familiar… In the past five years I have gone though this battle every year at some point. I think we all go though it… Different situation same type of battle… We need to Praise Him in the Storm and train our minds to be victors not victims… Philippians 4:4 Rejoice int he Lord always and again I say Rejoice.!!!

God bless you today and always! Choose to be happy to Have Faith and to Trust God to bring good out of Every Bad Situation!!!! Because He will!The devil comes only to steal from you, to kill you, and to destroy you; but Jesus came to Brig you Life and to Bring it Abundantly! ~John 10:10

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):
