Fulton’s Back at the Nursing Home

Fulton was finally able to return from the hospital to the nursing home, Tuesday, July 16th.  We are thrilled! God, moved along by your powerful prayers and faith, saved Fulton’s life. He was in the hospital over 30 days. What an experience! During that time, my faith was tested in many ways. Now, my faith is being stretched some more.

Fulton still has some fluids in his lungs though he seems to be doing better. He has to have breathing treatments four times a day. He really doesn’t like the treatments, but they are helping him fight against the pneumonia that lurks in his lungs.

I came across a quote the other day by C. S. Lewis. He said, “Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done.” I know God will continue to strengthen us as we walk this journey, but it is a day by day experience. So, please keep praying the rest of these fluids will soon be gone for good.

I’m overwhelmed with gratitude towards you. The doctor kept saying Fulton was critically ill. That he was, but your prayers have made the difference. He lives on to fight another day.

Your Friend,

“There is none like You, O LORD; You are great, and great is Your name in might.” Jeremiah 10:6

    Thank you for these weekly updates about your dear son, Fulton, and your wonderful, Godly wife, Ruth Hill.

    You all are in my thoughts and prayers,

  3. The power of prayer is amazing. My faith has been strengthened by seeing God’s hand in Fulton’s life. It has been over 10 years since Fulton was injured. He is a living testimony to the power of prayer and the fact that God does hear every cry.

  4. Praise God all mighty…way to go Fulton. So happy for your wife Dawson, her life is a testament that Jesus is our healer.

  5. Everyday I am learning to trust God. He is with you, and He never leaves. Fulton is in the palm of His hand.

  6. Dear Dawson, Great is our God and he is mighty to Save! I can’t imagine all the places you all have “gone” in these last few months, but we can see His mighty hand in your lives, hallelujah! Gal 6:2 Carry each other’s burdens, and this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. Dear Lord, You know I consider it a blessing to be able to pray for Dawson, Ruth and Fulton. I thank you for your mighty care and provision for this family. You continue to provide shelter during their storms and trials. and in the secret places reveal yourself in a new and wonderous way. I pray that they have a respite of rest, keeping Fultons lungs clear, and making the treatments not so hard on him. You have numbered his days and we thank you for each precious one! Please help those close to this family to come to help in divine appointments to help carry them through this time. Hem them in and keep them close. In Jesus name, AMEN

  7. I thought when people would say, it has been a great journey. Which is always said at a time of great accomplishment, this meant they’ve arrived and the journey is over. Wrong!! Just as you said, it continues and our trust in God continues. We always need Him!!!

  8. I am praising God with you. Thank you, too, for including C.S. Lewis’s quote. Each day is a fresh surrender. May you sense His presence and strength afresh.

  9. Dawson,

    Truly God is great and nighty to save.

    My prayers will continue daily for Fulton’s recovery and future return to complete health.

    My prayers continue daily for you and Ruth, and of course the kids of this nation and world.

    May our healing Lord continue to be faithful,

    Jim Nypen

  10. Our faith grow as the trials before us grow. God like any loving father wants us to grow. These last few weeks, although rough and would have broken a newer christian with less faith, were scaled to your faith. this will be trues all of our lives. The side effect is that those who follow us can witness it and better understand that God will truly never test us beyond what we are able to handle… however, it never gets easy.
    Love you,

  11. Dawson, your words reminded me of a hymn, a reminder that I needed.
    “Day by day, and with each passing moment,
    Strength I find to meet my trials here;
    Trusting in my Father’s wise bestowment,
    I’ve no cause for worry or for fear.
    He, whose heart is kind beyond all measure,
    Gives unto each day what He deems best,
    Lovingly its part of pain and pleasure,
    Mingling toil with peace and rest.”
