Hope I Haven't Missed Your Post




Hello my friends, I have been having trouble with blogger lately and my reader is not showing me that you have posted. If I have missed any of you I apologize as it certainly was not intentional. I also have been having trouble opening some of my favorite blogs as well there are times I am unable to comment. Now I have had a new Virus protector put on my computer and I kind of think it may be the problem, so please hang in there with me until I figure it out.

You will notice on my side bar I have added a Pray for Lisa Smith button. Lisa is one of my young blogger friends who I have grown to love very much. Her and her husband live in Texas and have 4 beautiful children ages 10 and under. This week Lisa received the results of her biopsy and unfortunately it was not good news. She has sarcoma of the breast, this is not Breast Cancer but cancer of soft tissue found in her breast.
You can read about her at her post Glad Chatter. Once visiting her I am sure you will come too know and love her as I do. Please join me in prayer for Lisa by placing this button on your home page and encourage others to remember to prayer for this wonderful woman and her family.

I have had a very good and fulfilling week. I have been watching so many sports lately that the only part of me that was getting any exercise was my thumb as it pushed buttons on the remote control......so I am back at Curves every second day, it feels good to stretch out again.

Yesterday was filled with grocery shopping, hair cut, drug store, banking, and filling the car with gas and windshield fluid. Really don't need the windshield fluid now as it has turned cold again in Alberta and we are expecting more snow this weekend.......January has always been the month I have least liked, just find it so very cold and much too long, but we are almost through it....yahoo!

Have a great weekend everyone, God Bless and .......many, many hugs.

Queenmothermamaw said...

So glad to hear from you and your wonderful stories of strong women, mainly yourself. I will follow Lisa for awhile and approach her about a WOW pin. Do you think she would accept? I guess if she posted about it, she would. blessings

Barb said...

So sorry to hear the news of your young friend's cancer, Bernie. I hope along with you that she finds the strength and support she needs at this time.

It sounds as though you're still in winter's deep freeze. I am in Denver, and today after another snowfall, haven't ventured off the couch!

Bernie said...

Thank you glnroz....hope all is well with you....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

QMM, how kind of you. Lisa is so sweet and carries with her a heart full of faith. I am sure she would accept your kind offer....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Barb, more snow in Denver eh, we are suppose to have snow all weekend and that is only to at least add to the 4 feet we have already. It is also very cold here.
I do hope you are feeling better Barb, I think of you so very often....always in my heart and prays my friend.....:-) Hugs

Queenmothermamaw said...

I thought about that Bernie, if not now I will leave it up til she does.
Blessings.

The Retired One said...

Isn't it just like you to ask for prayer for someone else....so nice, Bernie, you really have a heart of gold.
Good news, I saw the Ortho Doctor today and he said I could stop wearing my soft boot cast and slowly start using my foot without it again. But he said no treadmills for me for now. I can go on snowshoes in a few weeks too, which means I can get into the woods for those shots I want so badly to take.
Hope your weather gets better..it is bitter cold here today 1F degree and supposed to be way below zero F tonight too. I am also glad when Jan. and February are over as I know we will start unthawing for spring in April. ha
Take Care and hope your computer quits blocking your efforts.
luv ya

Gail said...

Hi Bernie-

I will add Lisa to my prayer space. So nice to read about your world - always feels god to spend time with you.

Love you
Gail
peace.....

She Writes said...

May God give her strength, courage, peace, good friends and doctors, and especially healing!

Margie said...

Hello Bernie
First, was so nice talking last night and so glad to know you are doing well.

I hope Lisa will be ok!
I will say a prayer for her!

Have a wonderful evening!
It's snowing here now.
But, I love it as it's so beautiful!
Off on a walk with Jake & hubby now!

Hugs my friend!

Margie:)

GrandmaK said...

Wishing you well and hoping your bout with blogger flu is under control. :) Cathy

Bernie said...

Thanks Peggy, your a sweetie...Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Joan so glad your foot is healing so very nice, it's great that you will get to go snow shoeing in the woods....and I will get to enjoy the photo's.
Joan, Lisa is so sweet and everything is happening so fast for her right now...God Love her she must be in a spin....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Gail, thank you for your prayers. Oh I love your new puppy, it is so cute......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

She writes, thank you sweetie, that is exactly my prayer as well.
........:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Margie, it was so good to hear your voice as well.

Thank you for the prayers for Lisa.

Still cold here but is not going to start snowing until the weekend, ...........:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Thank you Cathy, not sure what is happening with blogger, but somehow I think it is the new program I put in....:-) Hugs

Rebecca said...

The chores you accomplished are daily, necessary ones. To fulfill them is to evidence that God has given you energy and health and for that, I am thankful. As you have discovered, pushing the buttons on the remote does NOT qualify as exercise - but the entertainment it produces is great, isn't it? Being from Indiana, we're pretty excited about the Colts and the games that have been played to place them in the Big One next week!

Hope your computer troubles are short-lived and that many prayers result in restored health and peace for your friend, Lisa.

Bernie said...

Rebecca, the Colts and Saints game should be a good one...Go Colts!
It feels good to go back to Curves, it felt great just stretching out on the machines.
........:-) Hugs

Anvilcloud said...

We're back in a deep freeze too. I blame it all on Westerners. :)

Bernie said...

A/C.....(grins here) we do seem to send our cold weather your way but I am from NB and had my share of cold weather from ON.....:-) Hugs

Eileen said...

So sorry to hear about Lisa, I will add her to my prayers.
So many wonderful people with so many problems and heartaches. I've been reading quite a few sad stories on the blogs I visit.

Blogger has been a bother to me also, I can't access a lot of blogs, and I can't comment on a lot of them either. I have been having some luck accessing blogs by going through other blogs, if I happen to see a blog that I am a follower of on someone's sidebar I try to visit that way. There's no rhyme or reason to it, some days it's fine and other days it's acting up again. Oh well. There are worse things in life. But it does feel strange to be cut off from friends.

I'm glad you've had a nice week, you sound busy, but busy can be nice too. And it's good to hear you are working out again, it's nice to get into a routine. And I'm glad you're getting to enjoy your sports too!

I'm going to be taking a little blogging break soon. Lots to do around here. But I'll try to visit often.
Take care, Bernie.
Love to you,
Eileen

Wanda said...

Hi Bernie...of course I will visit Lisa and place the button on my sidebar. Wish the news had been different.
I've been grocery shopping too and working on a post for Dustin's birthday. Hope blogger lets me do it, with ease.
Enjoy your sports Bernie and stay warm, we're heading into more frigid temps, but the winter storm is suppose to miss us!
Take care...Love...Wanda

Choices said...

Hi Bernie,
I wish your friend good wishes for her health, the support of good friends like you, courage, and healing.
Glad you are back and doing well.
It is starting to get warmer here back to the nice Florida weather.
Sending you warmth.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Bernie said...

Eileen, have you put a new program in your computer....mine only started acting up when I did this.
Thank you for your prayers for Lisa, my heart is heavy for her and her family, oh Eileen I hate Cancer so much, it has destroyed so many families.... Big hugs to Jayden and Mia.....:-)

Bernie said...

Wanda, thank you for rembering Lisa, she is so sweet and so young with beautiful young children, my heart is aching for her.
Don't you feel good when you have a day that you accompolish so much. I know I do.
Good Luck with Dustin's post, big hugs to Alivia.....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Anne, thank you sweetie. So glad your weather has warmed up and you are again enjoying good Florida sunshine.......:-) Hugs

Jerelene said...

Hi Bernie,
I am so sorry to hear about your young friend..I will keep her in my prayers...
I hope your computer doesn't give you too much trouble..that can be so aggrivating...
Stay warm....
Love, Jerelene

Diana said...

Hi Bernie,
It's good to hear from you again. I haven't had problems with blogger but sent an email that got lost? I will post Lisa's button on my blog.
And will visit her as well. Love you Bernie, Love Di

Mary333 said...

Hi Bernie,
I will certainly pray for Lisa and I am going to check out the link you posted. God bless you :)

Bernie said...

Hi Diana, thank you...you will love her.
So glad you are having no problems with blogger, somehow I think it is my new program....luv ya...Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Jerelene, oh yes my heart is aching for this beautiful lady and her family.
Still can't open your blog so please e-mail me about valentine's pen pals okay. Thank you sweetie, hugs to Sam.....:-)

Bernie said...

Mary, thank you so very much. Lisa is a christian who holds prayers very close to her heart. You will come to love her and her family as I do.......:-) Hugs

Donna said...

My blog roll hasn't kept me updated either. I have to make sure I haven't missed a post.
I will be praying for Lisa ... I am going to her link right now.
Thanks for sharing and blessings to you!
Donna

Bernie said...

Donna, I am sorry your blog roll isn't recording either but am kind of glad I am not the only one.
Thank you for praying for Lisa and her family.....:-) Hugs

Teacher's Pet said...

Hi Bernie...I will be honored to pray for Lisa. Thank you for adding her to our prayer list.
I'm putting her button on my blog (mine show up at the bottom for some reason.) You are a kind person, Bernie...so sweet and loving. I can't say that enough about you.

Bernie said...

Jackie thank you, I was going to e-mail you to add Lisa to your prayer list....I am so worried about her and all I can do is pray for her which is what she wants from everyone right now anyway.
Enjoy your weekend my friend, luv you.......:-) Hugs

Denise said...

Thanks for joining my blog, appreciate you. I enjoy your blog.

Bernie said...

Denise, how lovely of you to visit and to join. I am so glad to know you........:-) Hugs

Brian Miller said...

janet said...

I recently lost a sister to this ugly thing called cancer..I will sending quiet prayers her way. Happy I found your blog (through Wanda)

lisasmith said...

Bernie, thank you my friend. I have grown to love you too and i hope i have the opportunity to meet each of your lovely friends. Thank you for taking part in this miracle the Lord is working. much love, lisa

Blessings each day said...

Thought I had commented here Bernie but I did read this post.

Naturally I will be praying for that lovely young woman, but I am curious about the fact that hers is not classified as breast cancer and yet it is in her breast, correct?

Blogger is VERY slow for me wherever I go and whatever I do from posting to visiting and commenting.

blessings and warming hugs to you,

marcy

Bernie said...

Brian, thank you for your prayers, and we are also suppose to be hit with the white stuff...enjoy your weekend......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Janet, thank you for visiting and please do come back soon...isn't Wanda's site beautiful, I love it.
Thank you for your prayers...Hugs

Bernie said...

Oh Lisa you are so sweet to stop by as I know how busy you are with everything going on, keeping you in my heart and prayers always sweetie, I have wonderful friends and when I visit their sites and see they have placed your button, well my heart just fills with love and pride of them, oh but I do love my village people, hope all is okay sweetie.......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Marcy, it is a very rate form of cancer which lives in the soft tissue and in Lisa's case they have found it first in her breast, she will have other test but everyone is praying it is confined to her breast (I think it's something like 25 cases in 52,000 cancers) She is so young Marcy and has 4 little children, I am praying so hard for her. She has a very strong Faith of which brings me comfort for her.
Thank you Marcy, Luv you....:-) Hugs

Alleluiabelle said...

Hi Friend,

Thank you for stopping by my blog and joining us in prayer for my sister and our family. My husband has heart problems and had open-heart surgery at the age of 49 in Dec. 2006. We were told a few months ago that nothing more can be done for him. We are living within each day and I'm believing the the Lord's divine intervention and miraculous healing in both my husband and my sister. I have buttons for both of them on my site for prayer.

I became a follower of yours this afternoon as I read through some of your posting. If you feel led, I would love for you to become a new follower of mine too.

God bless you new friend,
Alleluiabelle

Bernie said...

Hello Alleluiabelle, thank you for stopping by and I enjoyed your site very much on my visit. I am continuing to pray for your sister and will add your husband to my prayer list. I will be over to visit shortly......:-)Hugs

cinner said...

Bernie, so sorry about your friend. I will have a visit with her. my prayers as well. All the best Bernie, it is snowing here already!Have a good weekend.

Bernie said...

cinner thank you for visiting with and praying for Lisa, you will grow to love her as I have..it is not snowing here yet but I can feel it in the air but I have everything in and will enjoy the snow as I sit by my fireplace watching the Curling.....gotta love those snowy days with a glass of wine by the fire and great sports on TV.......:-) Hugs

Brenda Leyland said...

Hi Bernie, Haven't popped over for a wee while.... nice to catch up with you in your world, just a few miles hence.

I felt the cold seeping into my bones when I went for groceries this afternoon. Guess we're not out of the woods yet... but then we didn't think we were, did we?

Enjoy your weekend! Brenda

Bernie said...

Hi Brenda, oh my yes it is very cold with the wind blowing as it is.
No I expect a few more storms before we can say a final good bye to winter. I don't mind the snow at all but oh I don't like the cold.
Enjoy your weekend as well my friend, ......:-) Hugs

Just Be Real said...

Bernie, I am glad that your week was productive. Hope your Blogger problems have improved. Want to thank you so much for your continued kind words and encouragement to me. Mean a whole lot. Thank you for the link to Liz. Blessings.

Bernie said...

JBR, sometimes when we view the problems of others ours don't seem quite so bad.....thank you for your prayers for Liz......:-) Hugs

Karin said...

So glad to be able to stay inside today, having done all of my many chores yesterday. So sorry to hear about your friend Lisa's cancer. There is just so much tragedy around everywhere. May the Lord return her to complete health for His glory and for her family is my prayer.

Thanks always for stopping by and your encouraging words. God bless and have a great weekend.

Bernie said...

Hi Karin, I enjoy visiting your blog and thank you for praying for Lisa....it is snowing quite hard here at the moment but I am snuggled in for the night...Hugs

quieten said...

Hi Bernie,
I will send prayers for Lisa and follow her progress on her blog. She must be going in circles right now. My heart goes out to her and her family.
I've also been having blogger problems - it won't accept anything I put in.
We are having snow right now and it is bitterly cold here. Glad to see you are out getting some chores done. Stay warm!
Huggz,
Quieten

Bernie said...

Hi Quieten, I think blogger is giving most of us a hard time. Thank you for your prayers for Lisa and her family and yest they are going through a rough time right now as you would know.
How are you, how is George doing?
.......:-) Hugs

Midlife Jobhunter said...

January is exceedingly long. I guess the winter months are what we endure in order to have the other three seasons. Of course, there was a time when as an avid skier winter ranked highly for me also. Didn't know any better, I guess.

Glad to hear you are back at Curves. Hmmm. Guess I best get up and move around also.

Cheryl said...

Hi Bernie, stopping by to catch up with you. I too will add Dear Lisa to my prayers as well as for her little family. Its the least I can do. I hope you are having quieter weather and a warm up very soon! I have been cooped up with the deep cold here for a few days but went out today to snowshoe and came back in rejuvenated! Take care of yourself dear one and I will check back later!

the wild raspberry said...

you have such a good heart bernie...always such an encouragement to me.

thank you~
chasity

Anita said...

I'm in central Virginia where we have just gotten 12 inches of snow. The temperature will be in he 40s tomorrow, so a lot will melt.
I am not against snow or cold weather, just not so often. :)

You are kind to introduce us to Lisa. I will pray for her and visit her blog.

Bernie said...

Hi Julie, I too used to ski and didn't notice how long January was back then but now I sit and look out my window waiting for the end of it.
Curves is fun....have a great week Julie.....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Cheryl, we are snowed in at the moment...been snowing here since Friday. I love how you get out in the fresh air and enjoy your family and friends....thank you for prayers for Lisa.....:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Chasity I think of you and your sister/sil often and wish you all the very best....I truly love your music.......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Anita thank you for your prayers for Lisa.....I know she appreciates all of us.
We are snowed in here Anita, but it is suppose to warm up by mid week.......:-) Hugs

Anita said...

Bernie, I just tried to visit Lisa's blog with no success. I think you are missing the "h" at the end of her last name, or maybe it's another problem with the link.

So, I googled it and found her. Going back now to read a little.

Bernie said...

Anita, thank you. I have just tried it from my blog and it took me to her blog. I know I had trouble yesterday reaching her as I think some advertising spot managed to take over her blog. Not sure but I was fine today....Hugs

Anita said...

Success for me this time too.
Thanks.

Bernie said...

Thanks Anita, I checked my link just in case and it worked as well.
.......:-) Hugs

Valerie said...

I guess you're fed-up, Bernie. I believe a lot of people have had trouble with Google - I know I have. The weather is also making people a bit despondent. I'm pleased to see you are the same cheerful self we have grown to love.
I shall pray for Lisa, how sad ... so young too.
Many hugs.

Debbie Drews said...

What a hectic day you have had, Bernie. Thanks for leaving your kind comments on my post - Midnight Rambling.
I don't like the winter months either, although I don't think we get hardly any snow in comparison to you. Just as well. We have had a so called "bad" winter this year with about two weeks of snow on & off. England just comes to a stand still making us housebound due to the majority of roads not being gritted.Laughable compared to other countries who are well prepared as they have snow for several months of the year.
My boiler has just packed up. It is very cold & I am without any heating.Hope they come today to sort it out.
Will pop over to your friend Lisa's blog & will pray for her. Debs x

Tranquility Speaks said...

I am sure I left a comment when I read this, but now when I come back, for some reason, I don't see it!

I'd pray to God to heal this young lady and make her cancer free. Life isn't cruel. May God give her and her family to cope with all this. Glad to know you're doing well. How is your health these days? Hope the cold hasn't been brutal to your arthritis!

Bernie said...

Val not really fed up but I do find blogger frustrating by times.
We are snowed in and under right now, winter's are much too long in Canada really but then that is why I enjoy the other seasons so very much........:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Debbie, glad your snow is gone and I know what you mean, my sister moved to Scotland and couldn't get over how people reacted to the snow.....being brought up in Canada she was used to it.......:-) Hugs

Bernie said...

Hi Stillness, it is very cold here now. My arthritis is horrible but other than that I am doing really well........:-) Hugs

Eddie Bluelights said...

Hi Bernie
Will pray for Lisa.
Glad you are OK and I can comment.
There is a nice song I am singing for you and other friends at Plato.

Bernie said...

Eddie, thank you for your prayers for Lisa.....I will pop over and visit you soon.....:-) Hugs
