Lynnette's book-Chapter 9 & Week 6 The Secret

Please click the above icon to learn more about Read With Us and how it works.
This book reading is for In Faithfulness, He Afflicted Me by Lynnette Kraft.

It's good that Anna had those extra fat reserves since she had lost some weight. God definitely was good in allowing Lynnette to carry Anna those extra weeks. I don't blame Lynnette and Kyle for wanting to live out in the country with the fresh air and less chances of encounters with germs. That's exactly where I'd want to be!

I grew up in the country and it's where I've always wanted to live. Right now we live in a town that is small enough to be considered the country but I do desire to live even more in the country and we'll get there soon enough. Where do you desire to live?

The Nightmare House definitely sounds like a nightmare! Older houses do need more work but they also have a lot of charms that can't always be found in newer houses.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own.

I am always happy to hear about the success of my family and friends. Good news is always great to hear! This even includes news of pregnancy or a baby. I can handle baby things better with those close to me than those I don't know, but I would also never want someone to experience what the death of your baby is like. I am getting better at seeing strangers in public that are pregnant or have babies. I've often avoided looking or going near them. I'm learning that I should be happy for them too.

I still struggle with being around other babies and pregnant women. It is definitely getting better but I know that I'm not where I want to be. I've heard "fake it until you make it" many times. I'm not good at faking it. Never have been. So, I'm just trying to find a tiny piece of me that can be happy for them without being jealous. Some days it's easier than others.


ps - Definitely not a country girl. Love the suburbs and all that they offer.

I know there are many peaceful things about the country that I would enjoy!

Yeah, the girls JUST finished up their last rounds of chemo (liquid ingested kind) and had their portals removed from their chests. They just started kindergarten yesterday. They had the "curable" form of the disease. But not any less scary -

Awesome cookie! Let me know how long it takes to eat that :P

Horrible about your friend Danielle, just heartbreaking that she must experience this along with her grieving. What would hurt the state of TN to just issue a birth cert? I can't see it's saving them any money, since they clearly don't care about much else...

Yeah, I agree, I grew up in a really small town that felt like living in the country too.

Steve Pavlina wrote a blog about dealing with jealousy (or tried to, since he admitted he's not a jealous person). He is genuinely happy for everyone's success and Escalades and vacations, etc., and he had a deep, bizarre explanation for it. But I'm not materialistic (my husband calls me low maintenance) but I do get jealous, as you know, of other people having babies. I now think it's normal with someone who went through a loss to be jealous, until they work through the issues (but it's especially intense during the work). ~Debbie
