Psalm 27:13-14

Wait Patiently for the Lord

Dear Praying Friend,

One thing about Fulton’s predicament that’s difficult to watch is the amount of hours he has to wait. For example, Fulton has been asking for his new glasses. Every time I walk in his room, the first thing he does is point to his eyes. He wants his glasses but somehow we’ve gotten caught up in red tape. The doctor won’t release Fulton’s glasses until he’s paid. The payment comes from Fulton’s disability check. We are still 2 weeks away from him finally getting his glasses. It’s hard for Fulton to grasp because he wants what he wants now. Every time I see him, I tell him what’s going on with his new glasses but he forgets what I said. We have to go over it again and again.

The glasses experience started me thinking what all Fulton waits for; such as, a bath, getting dressed, going to church, getting the TV turned on, changing the channels, visitors, being moved from his bed to his chair, putting on his hat, going to light therapy, breathing treatments, etc. I honestly don’t know how he deals with it.

One of the great joys Fulton will experience in heaven is not having to wait. God understands the difficulty of waiting, that’s why scripture says, “Still I am certain to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait patiently for the LORD; be strong and courageous. Wait patiently for the LORD.” Psalm 27:13-14 May God help Fulton daily, as he waits and us as well. We too must wait.

Your Friend,

    I hear you . I hear you. I hear you. What your comments made me think of was taking care of my mother in the nursing home. So many times I found her in a pool of urine or blood. She is gone now. So I hear your frustration and helplessness in dealing with the system. How do we do it? I am not sure. I am glad that I dropped what I was doing to help her. I like to think that maybe I brought her some comfort and a smile to her. It was a very hard and sad time. I am sure you bring love warmth, and strength to your son. I know I had to stay really really focused on her and not the surrounding or circumstances. I can say you have a very special anointing for what you do both for your son and your hope line.

  2. Dawson as I think on you today (May 3) after reading your post about Addison’s birthday, I am reminded that you are teaching many how to live in difficult, even unwanted, circumstances. I applaud what God has done in your life to strengthen you enabling you to stand for Him. Your testimony is steadfast. Thank you for persevering for the world to see .
