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!😁
Amy Jane Sandberg is working hard for you….
Let me ask you – How often do you wonder if what your doing has any purpose and meaning? How often do you question what your life is worth? To many people don’t see their own worth…. My aunt as an example. She was a: kind, smart, talented, caring, and fun actress who touched so many people ones she knew and didn’t ever meet. Sadly she never grasped her worth. She was so hard on herself, She would say I wish I could do better or was better. She was a wonderful woman who brought joy to so many. she touched so many lives in such great ways… Yet she didn’t value herself much.
We all live different lives, we all are unique individuals and we all have impact on others. It could be in our: local community; an online community – games, forums,chat-rooms, Facebook, YouTube instagram twitter, work; school; church; family; etc… Anytime you talk to someone else you are effecting or affecting their lives and day in some way. Do you make people smile? Or do you tear people down.. But….. He/she treats me like…… That doesn’t matter your not measuring their worth, you are measuring ours… We have need to take responsibly and be accountable how we treat others. You want to know what your worth is? Look at how you treat others..
We may say: I am who I am? I just want to be myself why do I have to be nice… The bible say treat others as you want to be treated. (Luke6:31) Even if you don’t believe in the Bible or God, it is a good rule to live by. So let me ask you – How do you want others to treat you? Sadly others may not threat you kind and there are some who will never treat you the way you wish they would… But that doesn’t affect your Value! So what if there is one person who doesn’t appreciate you… If you see it or not there are people who you touch.
Lets talk about our appearance next. Are we what society says is: overweight, thin, sexy, tall, short, beautiful, handsome, homely, athletic, etc? What else do they say about us? Wait!!!!!!!! That’s labeling!!! We may fit into one of those categories but that does not define our worth! Those labels can act as boosters or most common as restraints. We tie ourselves down by what others say we are or what we can do. We need to stop doing that. Because let me tell you Your worth is un-measurable, your value is priceless!
It doesn’t matter what you do, how you or how you look. Only you an decide your importance, our value, our worth. We are invaluable, Priceless, irreplaceable, precious, incomparable, unequaled.
I challenge you to do as I am doing: Tell yourself you are important, you are beautiful, handsome, sexy, and awesome! Tell yourself you can succeed and that you wont give up on whatever you are reaching for. DO it as often as you need to and you will start to be happier. We all get emotional and have down days but its just a moment in time, and it will pass. Stay strong and don’t be afraid to talk to others when you need encouragement and support. You have purpose and meaning. No one can be better you, you are un-matched.
I love ya – don’t forget you are awesome!!!

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,

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. ♥

I’m back home and off to work.
My sisters wedding was beautiful. I was very happy to have spent time with all the family. It was a small but wonderful wedding, one of the best I have been to! Plus it was a mini family reunion! She is so blessed so many people wanted to be there for her joyous day. The only thing missing were my brothers and aunt Christine. I still fel sad that Shane is now in heaven. But I know he is in a better place and I will see him again one day. I just hope he was able to look down and see her day.. Funny, I always though that line was a little cheesy, never thought it was possible. I mean I know they are always wit us.. Bit to say that myself… I feel the dept of those words… Pardon me while I go cry…
My Sister Amelia and I have come a long way in our relationship. I realized we both were a bit envious of each-other.. Silly how envy can tear people apart. I am so happy for her, beyond words. I think both my sisters are blessed with wonderful husbands! Now it’s my turn.. (I know, when the time I right I will have mine. I am not in a hurry!) My nephew was a doll!! I adore him… I miss him tons. I can’t wait till I see them next time!
I’m sorry I meant to keep this short. Last thing….
My files are a mess on the computer and in hard copies, andmy net is limited…. Thank God I have my computer back tho. I can’t wait to finish some of these books… I am so grateful that have the time and help when I need it. I have a bad habit of jumping in headfirst and catching up latter… Now her I am back to work and regretting my quick filing system. I have a lot of organizing, updating, formatting rearranging and lots of writing to do. Where is that personal assistant I’ve been meaning to find… lol… I would love to have an office to go to: with a huge desk, multiple display monitors, several computers, and a staff to help me. Maybe one day? Till then I have a apt, with a small office, 2 filing cabinets full of research and hard copies print0uts of my work, a Great Dane who is leaning when to settle down while I work… Mom said shes never met a Great Dane so hyper… God knew what I needed tho, I would be so bored and lonely with out her. I have a demanding but wonderful neighbors. I love the new place now, tho I have only been actually home here 1 moth, its like living in a yearlong vacation spot out of a book I’d read… So many wonderful wildlife, and I’m up high, so I have great views all around me… Thank you so much for sticking with me and continuing to support me with encouragement and pushing me to work… I have so many books in progress, I’ve narrowed it down to just 3 for now till they are finished…. God bless you all, and I pray you have favor in all you do!

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.

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~

(This is a short letter I wrote to make people smile in a forum online where people were write letters to say what they had to, to people who won’t be reading them. It is a great idea. And there are some like mine mixed in. Anyways it made so many smile I decided to share it here. It is a small example of my work and creative mind..)
My Dearest Bed,
Your attempts to lure me to your cozy comforter, and soft pillows is at its end. Night after night I fight with you and eventually loose. Well tonight I am just going to call it quits.. I can’t avoid the dreams we share, any more then I can avoid the lust I have for you. You are after all my best friend. Though the coverings have changed, we have spent many years together. I know you envy my old bed, but you two are very different, even though my past bed was larger, you have three parts to you. Where a sleep, a pull out bed for a someone else, and some drawers. So not only are you comfy – cozy, you are also efficient. Thus we will be together a long time and you with my children one-day.
So we must make a deal. You have to start letting me go in the mornings. You must release me earlier then you have. Ten thirty am is just not acceptable any more. And I shall promise to retire to your caring arms, where we can share our dreams once more. I do love you, but if you refuse to comply, I will be forced to spend my nights with the couch.
~ Sincerely Yours,
