Breath of Fresh Air

Elijah is having another "asthma" attack. I put that in quotations because he has not "officially" been diagnosed with asthma since he is only 2 years old, and that is too young to give him the lable of asthmatic, according to his pediatrician. He started yesterday wheezing and coughing - which continued all night - and now into today. He tolerates his nebulizer because of the relief it gives him. We wonder what triggered this attack. Could be the poor air quality in the atmosphere, or the 30 minutes we spent yesterday morning playing outside (the neighbor's cats are constantly in our yard), or there could be mold or mildew somewhere, or maybe there is an unknown allergen causing this. Ugh. I question why does little, funny, happy, mischievous Eli have to have so many health issues. But at the same time I rest in the sovereignty of God. He loves my Eli much more than I do, and whatever His plan is for Elijah's life, I can trust Him. Jesus tells me, "I am leaving you with a gift - peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give isn't like the peace the world gives. So don't be troubled or afraid (John 14:27)."
