Hello sweet ladies,
Has anyone noticed I haven't been here? I have missed you!!!!! It is Sunday. The internet providerrrrr is not workinggggg. It is not a good deal. So much is going on at Prairie Flower and I can't even tell you. I need to put up pic's. We are going to go to our son's today, so before we go there I had Mr. Phil stop at MacDonalds and let me say hello to you all. I am hoping that it will be back on Monday. I am keeping a little diary of what has happened since last Friday. It is such exciting news and your families will enjoy some more stories and pic's from the farmyard.

One thing I will tell you all, is that last Friday Mr Phil and I had to go and get some soybean seeds. I left the little chick's and Little Duck in the front room in their apple bushel basket. I called out to our farm to tell the boys (married sons) to not let the children in the house because of Little Duck. I didn't want to take any chances. After I got home I checked on him and the heat lamp had fallen a bit and it was wayyyyyyyy to hot, the little chicks had flown up on the edge of the basket. Little Duck laid all sprawled out. I was freaking out to say the least. I picked him up and he was limp. I started splashing water on him. It was an awful sight. I kept praying and crying all at the same time. I was a mess! I am a mom ya know!!!!!!! Anyway, my granddaughter Ellie and I took turns holding him. I just new he was not going to make it. He looked so sad and just pitiful. Anyway, God didn't pay mind to my unbelief. Thank you Jesus when I am weak!! He let him live and I am so thankful! I kept thinking, Lord there are all these sweet children (and ladies) that are naming him, what am I going to do, if I have to tell them he is gone? He blessed me, and I am so grateful. About 5 hours later he was back to brand new. I know without a shadow of a doubt God stepped in and touched our Little Duck.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Lord's Day!!!!!!!
Leave me a note if you like. I will get to read it when I get back on line. Oh, I hope is soon!!!!!



  1. Oh Linda, yes I did miss you, glad to hear it is only because of the internet... (course I know how frustrating that can be!!) Yes, God is good and amazing.. I love that HE saved Little Duck!!

    I started to embroidery the 'spring thyme red work' today. Long story about what I will do with the four of them. I just know it will be so cool! (THANK YOU!!)

  2. Oh my goodness....I was having heart palpatations just reading that about that precious little duck. I'm so happy for you that he is okay and God stepped in...your prayers were answered. He is a special little duck now!!!! Keep us posted on his well being!!!!! He now has many followers !

  3. Hi Linda,
    I've been on vacation and catching up on blog reading...I'm so glad your story had a happy ending and Little Duck is OK.

  4. I was wondering what was up. I just figured you had things to plant, animals to tend to etc.. all of those great farm things you have been writing about :) :) :) I'm so sorry that the server isn't working like it should. I'll pray that it is fixed soon :)

    OH, so happy that Little Duck was revived and is doing well. That's an answer to prayer. I know that God cares about us. I think that includes our interests and what we care about, including super cute Little Duck :) :) I'm excitedly awaiting the news of Little Duck's new name :)

    Love and hugs from Oregon :)

  5. I am so glad the little duck is fine! God is Good isn't He?

    Have a wonderful week. Hope your internet stays on track for you!
