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:

What do you think of when you think about power? Do you think of those who hold high places in government? Do you think of the rich and famous? Power is only powerful when used for the benefit of all. Here is what the Bible has to say about power:
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 KJV
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, Acts 1:8 ESV
For the kingdom of God does not consist in talk but in power. 1 Corinthians 4:20 ESV
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, Ephesians 3:20 NIV
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV
being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, Colossians 1:11 NIV
And from my poem “All Things Are Possible”…When you call on the power that’s inherent in you…
So, what do you think of when you think about power? Do you think of you?
Yesterday a One Hundredth birthday celebration made the day just that much happier. Whatever you may be celebrating today, Happy Sunday. And if you happen to be celebrating a birthday…Happy Birthday!
Please join with me in remembering…lest we forget…
IN FLANDERS FIELDS POEM
The World’s Most Famous WAR MEMORIAL POEM
By Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place: and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the dead: Short days ago,
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved: and now we lie
In Flanders fields!
Take up our quarrel with the foe
To you, from failing hands, we throw
The torch: be yours to hold it high
If ye break faith with us who die,
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields
Composed at the battlefront on May 3, 1915
during the second battle of Ypres, Belgium
We all have a light to shine and share with the world. I love when someone shines their light on me…it uplifts me and reminds me that any darkness is only a shadow in all that is good.
There seems to be an abundance of anxiety in our society today, taking away our right to contentment and happiness. Here are a few scriptures to help combat this unfortunate state of mind. I hope they will help to bring you a happy Sunday.
Happiness is the best feeling in the world because it encompasses all things positive…love, hugs, good news, healing, well-being, blessings, etc. Put on your smiley face and have a Happy Saturday.
This photo reminds me of Psalm 121: “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills…” Today, let us lift up our eyes and see beyond what we normally see. Happy Sunday.
