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:

Today there will be a spectacular event in the universe. An eclipse of the sun by the moon. Central USA residents will see the full eclipse while we here in Canada, a partial. The last Solar Eclipse was in 1979. Don your special shades and view this heavenly event. Here is Roger Whittaker’s take on Moonshadow.
Nature is such a wonderful reminder of God’s handiwork in our world, and indeed of God, himself. The other day I noticed three monarch butterflies fluttering through the air reminding me of my three greatest friends, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Happy Sunday.
Part of my Saturday will be spent at a Celebration of Life ceremony for a long-time friend and member of our congregation…it’s part of life, after all. May your Saturday be spent celebrating life in whatever way brings you peace, joy and happiness. Happy weekend.
This was posted by Butch Dean in July and I believe it is definitely worth repeating.
Don’t Let Time Slip Away
Life and relationships have their difficulties. We don’t always agree with one another. Sometimes, we let pride and stubbornness rob us of the time we have together. Then, when we least expect it, life ends for one and any opportunity to make things right is gone. We are left helpless with a burden of regret.
Don’t let time slip away. Don’t let the sun set on your anger. Don’t wait until it’s too late. The time to make things right is now, this moment…it is all you have. There’s no promise of tomorrow; there’s only today. Don’t let time slip away.
Here is something that caught my attention on Facebook yesterday. Sometimes we search for things to post and other times things just appear. This really gave me something to think about.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Romans 12:2 NIV
Somewhere like this would be a good place to start. Happy Sunday.
You will have many choices this weekend…as this quote says, choose well. Happy Saturday.
