My Trust is In God

I hope all is well with you as we deal with COVID-19. It’s hard to believe how quickly this virus has spread, shaking the foundations of almost all the nations of the world. My wife and I live with the harsh reality that if Fulton gets the virus; he will have a difficult time defeating it, since he is so compromised already. The hard part for me is thinking about not being with him if he were to pass.

Actually, according to the nurses, he’s been doing very well. Yet, just today we got a call from the nursing home telling us Fulton will have to be tested for COVID-19. The governor has laid down the law that every person in a nursing home must be tested. I was reminded how quickly things could change. Our lives are so very fragile. Fulton could be doing well today, and dead tomorrow. Yet, I’ve seen him recover from pneumonia time and time again.

My trust is in God. Whatever happens, He will help us through it. I’m just so very thankful for you. What a prayer warrior you have been! What a gracious God! He will help us face whatever comes our way.

“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” Psalm 23:6

  4. Dawson, I am praying for you all. I found out from the crematorium that my dad oassed from COVID19 on April21st. He was in a memory care nursing home in CT in an area hit hard by the virus. He had just moved bwck to CT in in August because he wanted to die there and he really never was a dad to me. I went 28 years from age 5 to 33 without knowing him. So I am not super sad but I mourn that he never knew Jesus. I pray Fulton and you and Ruth Hill stay safe and healthy.

  5. Praying for you and your son Fulton and all your family….God has His arms wrapped around you.

  6. Oh Dawson & Ruth Hill, my heart aches for you and your beautiful granddaughter. Praying for a good result & easy testing. Jehovah Rapha is still the God who heals. Love y’all.

  8. How difficult it must be to not be able to visit your precious son! A couple days ago I was overwhelmed with a couple situations. One being my father is ill and seems to not understand the truth of an eternal home through Jesus. This grieves me and scares me. BUT I must trust in the lovingkindness of God to enlighten his heart and mind. If I put my eyes on Him, the peace comes. If I look at the what ifs, the anxiousness comes. May we both keep our focus on Him for He is our hope and strength.
