Step 4: Turn Upside Down
Stack a few pillows or folded blankets on the floor beside your bed. Sit on the stack along-side the bed, knees bent, one hip touching the bed. Place your hands behind you for support as you roll back, (or pivot) swinging your feet up over the bed. You should end up with your buttocks and hips on the stack and your legs hooked up over the top edge of the bed.
Lie with your upper back and shoulders resting firmly, arms resting on the floor above your head. In other words, you are lying on the floor, arms above your head, buttocks resting on the pillows and your calves flat on the bed. Close your eyes, relax, and breathe deeply. Remain in this position for up to five minutes. Rise slowly, lie down and drift off.
We thought we would share information from the Chautauqua County Web Site regarding the Coronavirus in our area. The county is divided up into four fire battalions. We are in battalion 3.
You can go to chautauquacounty.maps.arcgis.com any time for an updated map. We do not get this information from the Post Journal. Thanks to Ann Lawson for sharing this information.

Psalm 8 the Message
“1 God, brilliant Lord, yours is a household name. 2 Nursing infants gurgle choruses about you; toddlers shout the songs That drown out enemy talk, and silence atheist babble. 3 I look up at your macro-skies, dark and enormous, your handmade sky-jewelry, Moon and stars mounted in their settings. 4 Then I look at my micro-self and wonder, Why do you bother with us? Why take a second look our way? 5 Yet we have so narrowly missed being gods, bright with Eden's dawn light. 6 You put us in charge of your handcrafted world, repeated to us your Genesis-charge, 7 Made us lords of sheep and cattle, even animals out in the wild, 8 Birds flying and fish swimming, whales singing in the ocean deeps. 9 God, brilliant Lord, your name echoes around the world.”
Lord, our prayers today may be many and of a variety. We each bring to you our own joys and concerns. We bring our needs and the needs of others. Sometimes we think you are too busy for us and we do not want to bother you. Let us remember that you know our prayers before they are even spoken. Hear our prayers. Amen
