LET COMPASSION MOVE YOU
Its Sunday, Dan and my 34th day of staying at home.
It’s a day to reflect on compassion, kindness, love and peace. I woke up to Dan saying that he got more information on an e-mail from ancestry.com. He has a lot of fourth cousins all over the place. Of course, you have to pay to get more information. So, until we get caught up on the move, that will have to wait. Never the less, he is excited to know that he has family members spread out all over the place.
The other day I went through some of our books that we have kept in storage. One that was precious to me, was a children’s Bible that was my sisters and mine when I was little. This is the Bible that I learned about compassion, kindness, love and peace.
The first two pages, has always been filed away in my mind. I could picture the pictures and the wording as if I was a child. It’s the creation of the world. I learned that on the seventh day, this the heavens and the earth was finished and filled with life. On this day God rested from his work. God blessed the seventh day and made it holy because on that day he rested. This is why Sunday is a day of rest.

Science of the Heart
The human heart emits the strongest electromagnetic field in our body. This electromagnetic field envelops the entire body extending out in all directions, and it can be measured up to several feet outside of the body. Research from the Institute of Heart Math shows that this emotional information is encoded in this energetic field. Heart Math researchers have also seen that as we consciously focus on feeling a positive emotion - such as care, appreciation, compassion or love - it has a beneficial effect on our own health and well-being, and can have a positive effect on those around us.
How effective are homemade masks?
OUR DAUGHTER MADE OURS
There are two types of face masks that can help cut your odds of getting corona virus: surgical face masks and respirators, the latter of which are also known as N-95 masks.
The ones you see all over the news are surgical face masks, and what doctors, dentists and nurses typically use while treating patients. They’re loose-fitting and relatively thin, so tiny droplets can still seep in through the parts of the mask, and they aren’t necessarily foolproof.
Then, there are respirators, commonly used by construction workers, but also used by doctors seeing patients who potentially have COVID-19. They’re heavy-duty and are form-fitted to the face. According to the CDC, these masks filter out about 95% of airborne particles, including viruses and bacteria.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that DIY masks can be made in times of crisis as a last resort and “should ideally be used in combination with a face shield that covers the entire front (that extends to the chin or below) and sides of the face.”
Face Masks for Personal Use
If you want to take the extra precaution of wearing a face mask, the best thing you can do is make a mask for yourself ― don’t buy one and contribute to the shortage.
A study of homemade face masks by SmartAirFilters.com found that cotton T-shirts and cotton pillowcases are the best materials for making DIY face masks, based on their ability to capture particles yet remain breathable, and that they perform comparably to surgical-grade masks.
Here is Trish Hann, a Sydney-based diagnostic radiographer and clinical educator, goes through the correct method of putting on and wearing personal protective equipment. 'The most important thing with regards to PPE is making sure that what you're wearing is appropriate,' she says.
LET COMPASSION MOVE YOU
Let compassion move you. Let kindness guide you. Let love open you. Let peace be within you.
Until tomorrow, take it slow and give your soul a chance to catch up with your body.
