This morning Jarrod sent me a picture from four years ago, courtesy of Google memories…😊

Memories flooded over me with a wave of emotion… Peter was often sick, causing more inflammation in his brain followed by days and weeks of flaring…(“these children, when exposed to colds, flu, (anything!) can go into a flare–that is, have a resurgence of OCD, tics, depression, rage, body aches. Children with PANS don’t handle germs in a “normal” way. Once the body realizes there are germs, the antibodies begin attacking the brain. Not pretty.”)

The Lord has brought Peter so far…Rarely sick and rarely having flares, is a miracle! My heart is overwhelmed with thankfulness to the Lord. 

Peter’s mind and brain are still “broken” but our God brings beauty from ashes and “A bruised reed He will not break”. We know our heavenly Father holds Peter “as the apple of His eye” and in the “shadow of His hand”. (Isaiah 42:3, Deuteronomy 33:10, Isaiah 49:2)

Psalm 33:20-22

“Our soul waits for the LORD;
He is our help and our shield.
For our heart shall rejoice in Him,
Because we have trusted in His holy name.
Let Your mercy, O LORD, be upon us,
Just as we hope in You.”
