James 4:14

Life is Fragile

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

Your Friend,
Dawson

  1. I am praying for Fulton to recover fully from the pneumonia. I would ask you to pray for my friend Terry for healing with chronic back pain. May God’s glory be at the center of these healings! Amen

  2. Dawson, sorry to hear of Fulton’s pneumonia. My prayers are with both of you. God be with you. Jeanie Kinsman

  4. Hi Dawson – this is Lisa in PA. Just love you and Fulton and of course I love your show. You are doing so much good for those who are desperate. I just recently shared about your show to a new friend (her name is Lisa too!) I made at a woman’s conference. She believes her niece is cutting and may have Bipolar Disorder. The teenager’s parents are not interested in intervening, but Lisa and her husband have offered to open up their home to her. The teenager has more support (ie. family and friends) in Lisa’s area than where she currently lives with her parents and the teenager wants to move in with Lisa. Please pray that the teenager’s parents will give her the green light to move in with Lisa’s family (while the teenager is still open to the opportunity) In the meantime, I told Lisa about your show and how to access it online. Praise God for you Dawson and the favor and wisdom he gives you with the hurting. / And now I want to pray for Fulton’s recovery: Dear Lord, you know how precious Fulton is to his dad and to his family. You are Fulton’s Abba Father so we can’t even imagine how much MORE you love him than any of us can. Please heal him because we know You are ultimately the only One who can. We love You Lord and keep Dawson and the rest of the family close as well. Amen / Love ya Dawson – keep up the Good Fight! Blessings – Lisa

  7. Yes, Dawson, we will be praying for Fulton’s full recovery and continued good signs that keep him looking up.

  8. Dawson, May God continue to use you and Fulton to guide us all through difficult times. You are both such obedient servants and sharing your life’s ups and downs helps us through our own. May God continue to bless you and your family. Fulton is such a blessing to everyone he comes in contact with every day. Sending prayers for you all to see through this battle as God directs your life. Thank you for being such an inspiration to me.
