It is SONday.........Enjoy it! He Made It...For YOU!

Hello Sweet ladies,

"The nurses are getting Tenlee ready to do a trial run coming off the the ecmo machine.......the heart machine. the heart machine. They will stop and start it over and over to strengthen her heart. Tehy are looking at having her completely off within 24 hours she has been a wiggle worm. She's moving both arms and legs and her head. Dr. said sedate her some more so she will stop moving so much. I'll send a note after trial run starts.  She will remain on ventilator until lungs get stronger". from Grandma Regina

Tenlee and her precious Momma, Kisa.
This is an earlier picture right before the heart operation. 

This must be so hard on them all to watch their precious little one. So please continue to keep her tucked in you heart and before the King of Kings! He is hearing us and is faithful, even if it doesn't look like what we want it to look like! The family so appreciates that you are all standing in the gap on behalf of their family.

Also just heard from Charlotte's Grandma Francine, she said that she is doing much better. Her fever spiked to 105.9. Breaking into a rash on Friday night at the hospital. They feel like she started out with the flu and a couple weeks ago and it just never got better. Then it progressed into Adenovirus and bacterial pneumonia. Around 1:00 in the early Saturday morning hours, Grandma felt a peace come over her. Precious God we serve. Thank you all for the prayers.

Yesterday we ran into town to do a little shopping. While we were there we went out to one of our son's place. They just had a new baby boy cow and so I just had to see. Anything baby is right down my alley! Is he adorable or what? 

Baby was checking out one of the other steers.  Momma soon turned on the steer! 
Look at how full Momma cow is with milk! Wish I could get some of that.......she would kick me so I can't!!!!!!

I want sweet man will say no....... so I won't even ask. Good reason! With the horrible drought and all a Momma and baby would be to much to buy hay for. So I will just dream and wait.......until some day I can have one! Baby chicks don't cost that much! 

They went over the Momma could feed her baby in peace. 

Momma let us ooo and ahhh and then she said, "come on baby......I can only share you for so long! We need some quiet time! She is a good Momma Cow!

My sweet man did chores before church this morning.......Momma Duck has a make shift box I made for her this last week in a hurry, because she and another Momma were laying eggs allllll over the chicken yard. One of the Moms left this egg..........for me this morning. Trusting they will be laying more this spring and we will have some more baby ducklings. I lost my 9 young ducklings last year to the dogs. We are building the pen bigger this spring........with a picket fence around the wire painted white. With a gate........oooohhhh can't wait! One side will be for the ducks and the other for the Girlies! This afternoon I am going to find a wooden box and fill it with straw. I had this box filled to the top with straw.......think one of my "Girlie Hens" or two or three got in and took it all out. I make nice straw nests and they kick or scratch it out! Figure!

Have a precious day!!!!!!!

Father.......thank You so for a day of rest.......that we can come and sit at Your feet and glean from Your Word, so we will be stronger for the week that is set before us. You are so precious to us Father and we so need YOUR WORD. I can't imagine what my life would be if it wasn't for You. Even when I fall.......You are  there to pick me up....... when I are (I just reread this......I bet the Lord laughed at my "are" instead of am, hee) ready and confess. I bring little Tenlee and her precious family before You and thank You for all the provisions that You have made for her in this last week. Amazing! Please encourage the Doctors, Nurses and the Tech by using the Luther family. We are asking for healing, but trusting that You  have a perfect plan for Tenlee's life. If we need to be doing more then just praying please make that knows to us. We love and thank You for calling us Your children.........we so need a Shepherd in these days! 

In the Precious Name of Jesus, Amen

Because of the LORD'S Great love we are not consumed,
for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning;
great is Your faithfulness. I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion;
therefore I will wait for Him."
The LORD is good to those whose HOPE is in Him,
to the one who seeks Him;
Lamentations 3:22-25

Ladies that is a promise.......for those who "SEEK" Him........we have such a precious Father "in Heaven"!  

Hugs from our farm!


You are so loved by Jesus........and me!

Oh, by the way.........we slept soooo good last night......mmmm the smell of fresh air on our pillow cases........thankful I can hang our clothes on the line!!!!!! Smells like a garden and I love gardens! 


  1. Linda,
    Thanks for the update on precious Tenlee. I really like seeing the photo of her with her mother, Kisa. So sweet ;) :)

    That baby cow is really sweet. Yes, I think babies are adorable, too...even animal babies :) :) So precious :) :)

    Enjoy your SONday :) :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

  2. So glad to hear that baby Tenlee situation is improving. I've been sending up lots of prayers, and will continue to do so.

  3. Thanks for the update on precious Tenlee! Isn't it powerful what Prayers to our Father can do?
    Your Son's baby cow looks like he's going to be doing alot of square dancing with those white boots of his! He is adorable! He's Mama looks very pleased to be showing him off!
    Have a wonderful SONday!

  4. Hi Sweet Friend...
    I'm home from church today in BED! UGH! I fell down our staircase Friday a.m. before work. My ankle is huge and a beautiful shade of blue and green. I had a busy Sat. and tried to hobble to much on it and now it's worse. So I'm resting it today to try to get back to work Monday. Mommas don't have time to be laid up and not moving!
    I've been missing visiting with you and I've decided to make myself slow things down.
    Praying for your friends on the blog. Breaks my heart knowing that little Tenlee is new granddaughter will arrive soon and it just makes me so sad. You are a true loving friend to care so much for others.
    I loved seeing your pics of the baby calf. I have a tender heart for them. My inlaws have a farm with lots of polled herefords and I love the springtime to see the new calves.
    Beautiful Kansas weather we're having,huh? Think we are in for a rough February.
    Hope work is going well. I was so tickled to hear you have a MP3 player you get to listen to! I have one I use when I walk, but I can never figure out how to get music on my girls have to do it for me! That's wonderful you get to listen at work.
    Thinking of you OFTEN .... you always brighten my day!
    Big hugs,

  5. Thank you so much for updating us on Tenlee . . . lots of prayer being sent to Our Father for this babe and family!

    I so enjoy your posts! Looking forward to the spring day when I will be able to hang out bedding on the line here in Northern Minnesota! God Bless!

  6. Oh Linda, I was so glad to hear the news on Tenlee, my prayers are still with her and her family. Love...the cow and baby calf! smile... I had just wrote a piece out of Mom's diary from 1937, where they had a new baby calf. smile... So glad your day is restful, that is what we are doing Just enjoying our SONday!! Wish I had some of your fresh sheets to lay my head We don't have a clothes line anymore and I miss it...(even though I probably couldn't hang clothes any more..)


  7. Linda, so happy to hear that our little dollbaby, Tenlee is doing better. I keep her on my mind and in my thoughts and prayers. God's great plan is so great and our simple human minds can not understand but we must stand in the gap and pray and put our faith in our Great Creator. I will be in prayer until her little heart is healed and she no longer needs the machines.
    I will also keep Charlotte in my prayers. I also give thanks that she is doing better.
    The little bull is so cute. I love the Spring and the new babies arrive. It is a new beginning. (I just get tired when I am running out to the pasture to keep track of the cows and to the barn to check on the ewes.)
    Relax and enjoy your Sonday...I am.
    God Bless

  8. Linda, so glad things are looking up..Praise God.. the calf is so cute,I'm like you I sure would like a bucket of that milk myself.... have a good night.

  9. Prayers for Tenlee keep coming! Love that baby cow! Such a sweetie! Always smiing here. Pleas epray about this college stuff with Nick. He loves the Kansas Wesleyan. It is just the finances that are daunting. Love to you and yours.


Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment. It is so appreciated and it makes me feel like I am making a new friend.

God Bless your day!
