3 months healthy!

Yesterday we celebrated 3 full months of Brayden being healthy!
It was Brayden who brought this to my attention late that evening.
It was also his idea to bake a cake.
A cake we didn't have, but we did find a box of Trader Joe's banana bread in the pantry and decided to make muffins instead.
The kids clamored to help.  
Taking turns cracking eggs,
measuring oil, adding ingredients, and pushing buttons on the mixer.

 They also had their turn at licking the batter.
And according to Brookie,
these muffins were "going to taste extraordinary!"

While Daddy was still at work, 
we celebrated three months of wellness.

I won't lie.  Yesterday morning I woke up and worries tried to strangle and consume.
With each moment, I gave them over to God and literally meditated on His word with each hour of the day.  Choosing and fighting for gratitude over worry.  And as those hours came and went, His peace began to cover.  His perspective began to eclipse my own.  Little pieces of good news began to sprinkle in through blessings and praises.  When Brayden mentioned it had been 3 months since he was discharged from the hospital, I checked the calendar.  And indeed, to the day, it had been exactly 3 months. This was icing on the "peace" of cake He had already served.
There isn't a day that goes by that I don't thank God for another healthy day for Brayden and ask Him to heal him completely and absolutely from CVS.

Today was a good lesson:
A) His Word is true and does not fail

"Do not be anxious about anything.  But in everything, by prayer and petition, and with THANKSGIVING, present your requests to God and the PEACE of God, that transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4:6-7

B) When in doubt,
gratitude wins out.
