Dear Praying Friend,
God in His word teaches us a basic truth: life is fragile and can change at a moment’s notice. For example, something very encouraging happened in Fulton’s life. He is getting some movement on the finger next to his thumb. He’s been so excited lately, laughing, thrilled at this breakthrough. The littlest change in his life is exciting to watch! I thought about how amazed God must be when we show even the smallest signs of growth.
But this morning, I found out Fulton has pneumonia. He’s not yet been sent to the hospital. His doctor thinks he can be treated right where he is, at the nursing home. We’ve caught it early and are hopeful he’ll be able to beat this infection. The nurse was positive this morning. She said Fulton’s temperature had come down over night and he is getting antibiotics and the fluids he needs. She also said, he was sleeping, which is unusual. He’s usually up and lively in the mornings.
So, here I am, asking you to pray for Fulton, that God will heal him. Realizing no matter how quickly our lives can change, one constant remains: God is in control.
“How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog–it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.” James 4:14
