Prayers for Janine

Wednesday my beautiful friend Janine of Sniffles and Smiles is having surgery. My heart and prayers are with her and her family today.....I also for pray for her surgeon's hands to be guided by God and all his angels will fill the room to watch over my beloved friend.

This photo is of The Wings of Hope and is dedicated to Janine as well as others who are living with challenges or whose burdens are heavy.



I had another good day today. I finished my errands and spent two hours in the dentist chair, uncomfortable yes but I am so relieved that appointment is over and I am off the dentist list for another six months.

I had a couple of special surprises today....a beautiful bouquet of flowers from a dear friend but the most special was a hand made card from my friend Diana of Welcome to My World. It is the most beautiful and thoughtful card I think I have ever received, and she enclosed the loveliest crochet book mark which will forever be in whatever book I am reading. Just knowing she made both the card and bookmark with me in mind filled heart with love and my eyes with tears. Thank you my friend, we do have the most wonderful people in our village......and you my friend made my day extra special. Love you.

It was very cold again today with snow and we have more snow on the way tonight and tomorrow morning.....The wind would give anyone frost bite in minutes today I am sure. Now the good news is that we are suppose to warm up by the weekend and be in double digits and I am looking forward to a break from the cold and all the snow.

I have changed my appointment from Wednesday to Friday with Dr. John because of the weather....I don't like driving on a slippery highway let alone when it's snowing. He was okay with that as a couple of days will not hurt anything. I am finished with these antibiotics on Thursday and he promised me on the phone today I will not have to take anymore antibiotics by mouth again....now the IV's is a different story. I may be in hospital next week for 2 -3 days for the IV's and my test. I will know more when I see him on Friday. I am okay with this as I just want to feel better and get my life back.

There is a baby shower for baby Lucy on Saturday and I am praying that I am well enough to be able to attend. I purchased a gift and card and am ready and willing now I just need to be able.

Good Night my friends and God Bless........:-) Hugs

Dear Bernie
My heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with you, and for Janine ...one wonders why we have to go through these trials of our faith.
"And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. "
Romans 8:28

Love Granny

Will be praying!!! God IS Good!!!

So glad you're out of the dentist's chair. I will find myself in one on Friday as I get my Root canal done. I really AM looking forward to that. I know from experience that it does relieve the pain and save the tooth!!

Have a grand day!!! Cathy

Blessings each day said...

Though my only comtact with Janine has been through one comment on a post of mine and through wonderful bloggers like yourself, Bernie, I will be remembering her in prayer.

Michael and I are going to a healing Mass tonight so it will be extra special since we can also lift your health up in prayer tonight as I do worry about you, my friend.

I did make home made chicken soup and wish you could have some with us!

blessings and healing hugs,

marcy

Wanda said...

Good morning Bernie...
I do so hope things go well for Janine today. She is the essence of sweetness.
You did have a good day...flowers and gifts of a card and bookmark both made by Di...another sweet person.
Well Bernie, it may warm up for you, but a few of your snowflakes are expected to be blowing down this way over the weekend! I have had to turn our heat on...but I enjoy cold weather, so I'm not complaining.
Think of your hospital stay as a spa visit...being waited on hand and foot...ask for a back massage
maybe!
Since you are ready and willing I hope you are able to attend Lucy's baby shower...I had a nice time attending my niece's.

Stay warm and cozy Bernie,
Luv and Smiles,
Wanda

I hope your friend does well. Thanks for dropping by my "Hope" site and with your comments. I agree that the "little people" are being trampled upon. It is hared to stay encouraged, but that is the reason for that blogsite. I have found that so many people don't understand what is happening and I wonder why they don't care. Thnx again for your input.. glenn

Margie said...

It's always good news when you tell us you have good days ...glad to hear that, Bernie

How very nice to get flowers and the card from Diana .
I love getting cards in the mail!
Even get one every now and then.

Well, I'm rushing as I have a very busy day ahead of me .... have to get in the shower and then off to work.

Now you have another one of those very good days, ok....that is an order...lOL!

Bye, my friend.

A hug for you!

Margie:)
P.S Oh, I shall say a prayer all will go well with Janie's surgery.

Diana said...

Good Morning Bernie,

Good Morning Wanda, you are so right, Janine is very special...she just has a way about her don't you think.
We are having a snow storm right now, suppose to be over by early evening and then the snow is suppose to go away for a while. So glad I am inside as by the radio reports there are cars all over the place out there....a nice fire for me today my friend.
I don't mind the cooler weather either Wanda but felt winter arrived way to early.
I am hoping to make Lucy's baby shower as well...
Oh my gosh Wanda I even have to take my own insulin and personal items in with me, I doubt I'll get a back rub.....ah but I can dream.
Will keep you posted. Have a great day, Hugs to Alivia......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Glenn, I honestly feel more people should speak out but in a proper way.....these prearranged things only causes tension and settles nothing......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Margie, I did have a good day and am so thankful for it. Today we are having a snow storm and it is horrible out there, I will stay by the fire with a good book and wait for the warm up on Friday.

Hi Diana, I am still basking in the glow of your card yesterday, thank you again....hope Jake is doing better today, my love and prayers go out to both of you. Have as good a day as you possibly can my friend....Love you....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Cinner, it was lovely to go to the mail and receive Diana's card then answer the door and receive flowers, my gosh I just felt so blessed and it did lift my spirts.
We are having a snow storm this morning and it is really bad outside. I am looking forward to the warm up on the weekend. Stay well my friend.....:- Hugs

Bernie said...

Oh Choices, Janine is so greatful for our prayers....and I thank you for all your good thoughts for me. Have a great day......:-) Hugs

Tranquility Speaks said...

This was precisely what I had in mind when I was leaving a comment on Wanda's blog. May God guide the surgeon who is performing the surgery and may Janine become fighting fit in no time. People with that beautiful and pure a heart need His special care.

I am SO sorry Bernie for the delay and my absense. I have missed everyone so much! My routine these days is maddening, but I won't let that become an excuse for not getting onto everyone's pages.

I pray that all goes well with your appointment and I wish you experience no pain and recuperate soon enough. It bothers me to come back and see so many of our kins ill. Get well soon Bernie. Loads of love to you

P.S You give me SO much strength Bernie, by just being you. I feel so much more capable of dealing with my problems because of the influence that you are on me. May God bless you :)

Tranquility Speaks said...

I missed this: Diana is exceptional no doubt and her gesture of sending you those precious gifts goes to show what a wonderful human being she is. We sure are privileged to know her. I am for sure :)

I hope the doctor is able to correctly diagnose the issue. Please go there with lots of hope and don't keep any kind of sadness in your heart Bernie. Let it out to anyone whom you love and trust the most. I am SO SO thankful to God I got to know you and so many other wonderful people here on blogger whom I'd never be able to meet otherwise. When you have the good wishes of so many people with you, no harm can come upon you. Go there free of fear. God bless and loads of love :)

Queenmothermamaw said...

I will indeed say prayers for Janine, and for your latest treatment. I dread hearing about the snow because I know soon we will have outs. I had to shift gears today after spending the last few days putting that "Ball" together. Thanks for your sweet comments. I am so into trying out any thing on the computer that I mess up some things once in awhile. What nice gifts you received.Blessings

I am sooo happy to see that you got the card and the bookmark from Di...lovely gifts bestowed on a sweet and loving lady.
Love to you, Bernie.

Bernie said...

Hi Stillness, I have to admit I miss you very much but I also understand when you are young and working you don't have as much time as I do being retired. Thank you for your kind words sweetie, I love your comments and post.
We will keep praying for Janine, love you.......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Stillness, Diana's card was beautiful, she made it herself and the verse she wrote inside brought tears to my eyes, I loved the book mark she made for me as well. She is so thoughtful and sweet and I am forever grateful for her and all my blogging friends....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Peggy, we are having a snow storm today but it is suppose to go to double digits on the weekend...so that will melt all the snow we have now.
Thank you for your prayer for Janine and I....her health is more serious than mine right now...Love you for being so kind....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Jackie, I am so cosy by the fire right now reading a book....I am actually enjoying the snow storm as it is suppose to warm up to double digits this weekend and all this snow will mealt.
It was wonderful to receive Di's card yesterday.....it really lifted my spirits.....Lu ya...:-) Hugs

The Retired One said...

I will be hoping for you on your Dr.'s appointment, Bernie...you are always in my thoughts and prayers.

Hi Joan, I am hoping he has some answers for me tomorrow, I feel sometimes no one wants to commit to anything, just tossing around ideas. will let you know sweetie, and yes Janine is doing okay, thank God.....:-) Hugs
