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:

Here is today’s reading from one of my devotionals:
Lord, bless all those today who need healing of any kind. Whether it be physical, emotional, or mental, bless them with your merciful grace and eternal love. Let each one know that they are special in your eyes and that, in the realm of spirit, there is only perfection, wholeness, and joy. Amen
Well known and long time Canadian politician, John Crosbie has died at the age of 88.
He was known for a sharp tongue and quick wit.
It is said he was an avid reader and when once asked what book he was currently reading, his reply was, “The Bible; I want to be prepared for my final exam.”
Not bad advice, I’d say. Happy Saturday.
There are people, believers and unbelievers, who have a difficult time understanding and taking to heart the fact that God has a wonderful plan for our lives. (Jeremiah 29:11)
Things crop up in our lives that put restraints on the plans we have made, and that is the time to wonder if maybe God has other plans at this particular time. I choose to believe this is the case and believe that His plans are far superior to mine, whether they seem for my own good or not.
Mark tells a story of Jesus healing a boy with an “evil spirit” after the boy’s father asks Him to “help my unbelief”.
Shall we also say, “I do believe; help be overcome my unbelief!” (Mark 9:24
To me, this is one of the most reassuring hymns ever written. It gives me hope and the promise of my destiny which relieves any fears I might entertain. Happy Sunday.
I found this on Pinterest this morning and it seems to be a fitting message for all who are either in hospital, going into hospital, suffering surgery of some kind, or just plain not feeling well. Happy Saturday.
I live my life looking forward to God’s promises. It makes living quite exciting. That’s why I love this song so much; it is full of promise and optimism. Happy Sunday.
Saturdays come and go. Some are really good and some, not so. Whatever you have planned for your Saturday, whether coming or going, I pray that your day will be pleasant, energizing and full of love. Happy Saturday.
