Fulton has had a lot of tragedy in his body; therefore, he can’t talk or walk or feed himself, and has very little self-control, but he is cognizant. He is aware, he knows what’s going on. If you ask him to talk, he will try and make groans and laughing sounds. It’s amazing the conversation you can have with him. He is well aware of what’s going on. In the sadness, there is gladness. Even though his body is broken, he has the gift of self-awareness. I’ve often wondered what he would be like without it, it wouldn’t be good.
Yet, you have prayed and Fulton has become more aware all the time. There is always beauty in the heartbreak. Fulton’s self-awareness is a gift. May we become more self-aware in our relationship with God.
Ephesians 5:14 This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”
