Lynnette's book-Chapter 10 & Week 7 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.

Going into Anna's surgery had to be difficult for Lynnette and Kyle. Knowing that it had to be done, but yet dreading it happening. I'm glad that Lynnette had wonderful parents that stepped up to help them out when they needed to be away for the surgery. I had to smile about the part with the goat's milk. I've never had goat's milk but I did give it to Kyndra when I was weaning her off of formula. Have you ever tried goat's milk?

Handing Anna over to the nurse and watching her go down the hall crying is so heartbreaking. I'm sure the urge to run after her was there. The surgery seemed to go well and even afterward all seemed good until Anna's heart stopped. I imagine the fear that gripped Lynnette and Kyle was immeasurable. I know I don't ever want to see my child hooked up to many tubes and wires, and here Lynnette was seeing it again.

The days of no improvement would prove weary for anybody but we always hope for our children. I am glad the doctors were able to find out the problem through the heart cath, even though it was risky as Anna wasn't completely stable. A blockage was fixed through another surgery and Anna was able to go home 10 days later and that is amazing! I'm not surprised by Anna's stats getting better when near her mom or dad. That probably made her get better quicker! Do you think that contact like Anna had with her parents can have a healing effect?

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the great achievements of the future.

It's hard to forget mistakes and honestly, I don't know if I really want to forget them. If I forget them, how will I remember not to make the same mistake again? I do believe that from my mistakes I can learn to be a better person for others and for myself.

There is no doubt that choosing to end Jordan's life will be something I will forever regret. I will always wish I had chosen a different path. The road to healing wasn't easy but I made it and I can see that in my life, through all my trials, the gold was refined by the fire.

In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls. 1 Peter 1:6-9

I know I don't think I would want to drink Goats Milk. I also hope I never have to see my child hooked up to machines & things like that either.
I also like your idea about mistakes it is good not to forget them but remember so we don't make the same one again.

We can sometimes be too critical on ourselves. I find it harder to forgive myself than to forgive other. Thanks you for sharing your journey. You had gone down both paths and perhaps those experiences will help someone who's trying to figure which path to take.

One question, I guess you are a nurse so you have experience with health issue. You also mentioned that you are ttc so I guess you're ready mentally. How do you know if you're ready physically? I mean, our bodies need sometime to recover from a full pregnancy right? Thank you Holly.

Blessing!!!

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Ephesians 4:29
