Someone say Doctor????

Yesterday was full of doctor appointments, 3 to be exact, a dentist appointment, and one child home from school throwing up.  I was so thankful to have my husband working from home to help.  One doctor appointment was routine for son to have his medicine checked but with a little twist we had forgotten about, we have to have blood work done this next week to check on insulin and thyroid. Not a big deal really, but if I think real hard or dwell on it ever bad possible circumstance comes to mind.  Same with my doctors appointments yesterday.  They were able to rule things out after a few common lab tests, but no solution, so tomorrow is doctor appointment number three for me and hopefully an answer, but until then the doctors words swirl around in my head, could be not a big deal or could be a really big deal.  The news from the dentist that I have a infection in my gums and need a root canal really didn't seem like such a big deal.  Even in the midst of running around. I was able to love on my sick daughter and bring her lunch in bed and just let her sleep and read.  With everything in one day you would think I would be a pile of mess on the floor, but God knew what he was doing, he kept me busy.  He had my daughter sick so I could focus on her, my husband working from home to take some of the burden, and He had a car ahead of me with the license plates Phil 4:6 on them.  Here's that verse "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." 
and if you continue to read verses 7-9 this is what it says " 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
 8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you."
I do have a peace with all that's going on, I have to practice daily to not be anxious, to not let my mind swirl around with possibilities but to focus on what is praiseworthy and to put God on the Throne.
