Fulton’s Beautiful Gesture of Love

I hope all is well with you knowing there’s so much going on in all our lives. I wonder if we will ever get back to normal again. I sure wish I could be with Fulton now. It’s been nearly 6 months since I’ve been able to see him and give him a big hug.

Things are getting scary at Fulton’s nursing home. As you know, nursing homes are ground zero for the pandemic. More and more patients are testing positive for the virus. Plus, Fulton has very weak lungs. His doctor told me, “He has the lungs of an 80-year-old.” Once again, we must trust God for His grace and protection over Fulton.

All of this concern doesn’t stop Fulton from being himself. His nurse was telling me the other day he’s been greeting the staff with hand motions that say, “I love you.” He points to his eyes, which means “I”. He then points to his heart, which means “love”. Finally, he points to them, meaning “you”. What a beautiful gesture which says, “I love you!” Just a small act of kindness is what some of the staff need to carry on. There’s good ole’ Fulton doing God’s work. I’m so proud of him, little things mean a lot.

“Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.” Romans 12:10

Thanks again for your many prayers!

    Love y’all, Penny Cosson ❤

    We thank God also for using Fulton to spread your love Lord! Amen!

  3. Thank you for sharing such a simple but powerful story. Sometimes those who are capable of very little physically accomplish much more than those of us who are strong. II Cor. 12:9 I am praying for Fulton and all the caregivers and staff where he lives.

  4. Bless Fulton’s heart – even in his condition where communication isn’t easy, he is determined that his message comes through loud and clear. We can learn a lesson from Fulton.
    Love to all,

  5. Try elderberry gummies or syrup. It will make the inside of Fulton’s lungs slick where virus and bacteria will not be able to attach.
