Hey 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!😁
Dear Dreaders, Guess what… 😛 Yep……. My foot is still broken.
Dr said that it could take a year for it to heal. He said my break is a difficult one. It is across the middle of my foot. The bones he said are like this. (–) He said stay in the boot. He saw a girl yesterday. Who after 7 months is finally seeing her bones connect. I broke mine 4 months ago. The dr said surgery wouldn’t make much a difference because my bone may never heal so putting a screw in especially at this point won’t make big difference. In fact he said honestly it could prove to cause more issues if my foot doesn’t heal. I am on vitamin D and trying to stay off it as much as I can, however I am a pretty busy person and I don’t sit still well… I go back to see him in 6 weeks. I don’t sit still well but I am working on it. Do me a favor, don’t ever break your foot. It is really painful and it limits you so much more then I ever thought I would. I truly feel blessed that I still have my foot, and that things could be so much worse then they are… I have a big God who can do big things. I know this from personal experience. He has a plan! And I am trusting Him. I am Healed and I am just waiting for the manifestation of it! Till then I have lots to do and I will finally be forced to sit and work on my books with few excuses!

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!
♥Love ya, Amy Jane Sandberg
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 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!

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,

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