I am Patricia Ann Boyes and have just become a first time published author at the age of seventy-seven. I am so excited! The title of my book is My Precious Life, and is now available for sale in Hardcover, Paperback, Kobo, Kindle and various e-books. The book is available on many online book stores such as Amazon.ca, Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, Amazon.uk, Westbow Press, to name a few.
In April of this year I posted an excerpt from each of the forty chapters, and they can still be read by scrolling down to the beginning of this blog. “My Precious Life” is meant to be an inspiration to those who are struggling with life’s lessons, and wondering what they are all about. The feedback the book is receiving is touching on just that. “Wonderful…I couldn’t put it down…inspiring…” These are some of the comments coming back to me, and I’m so thankful for the interest it is generating.
After I posted the first forty excerpts, I continued to blog a post a day, and am still blogging! I love it, and have met some wonderful people in the blogging community. Here again, comments are positive and uplifting.
Here is a link to my church web site. My church is a focal point in my life and is featured in my book which is why I’m including its link.
Thank you for visiting “My Precious Life”. I look forward to hearing your comments on “My Precious Life” the Blog and the Book:

Have you ever been unable to see things clearly or wondered about the path you should take in life? I find this photo and scripture very enlightening. Happy Sunday.
What you decide on will be done, and light will shine on your ways. (Job 22:28 NIV)
So many have so much in the way of talents, yet so many are not applying them in their lives. Whatever your talents are they are God-given and not to be set on the back burner. Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:10. Happy Sunday
This is for all my friends and family I haven’t been able to reach lately! This includes church and blogging friends. I will be delighted to get at least one hug back. 🙂 Happy Saturday.
My imagination just ran away with me when I saw this photo. I can’t help give it the title of Giraffic Park. (sorry) Happy Monday, anyway. P.S. My friend Joyce will like it.
I attended another celebration of life yesterday. The main memories the family had of their mother/wife/grandmother were of how much she loved life and how life loved her back. It was meaningful that in the face of death she knew that she would “dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” (Psalm 23). That’s how I find the courage to say, Happy Sunday, in the aftermath of sadness.
Here’s a quote by Mark Twain, “I have spent most of my life worrying about things that never happened.” Sound familiar? Happy Saturday.
“Six days you shall work, but on the seventh day you shall rest. In plowing time and in harvest you shall rest. Exodus 34:21
Today is a great day to take this scripture literally. Happy Sunday.
Then Jesus said, “Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile.” Mark 6:31 (NLT)
