Health Tip

There are many things we can each do to prevent the spread of viruses. One of the best things is hand washing. We are asked to wash our hands often with soap and water–before handling food or touching our face, after handling food, before and after contact with someone, before and after using the restroom, …. And we are told that we should wash our hands for at least 20 seconds. There are lots of 20 second songs to sing or hum as a way of timing the 20 seconds. ‘Happy birthday’ is one of them. How about singing the second verse, “God is blessing you now”. to get in a 20 second prayer boost while getting clean hands.

If soap and water isn’t available, use a hand sanitizer with a base of at least 60% alcohol. And, guess what? That should be rubbed vigorously for 20 seconds! You can affirm God’s blessing then, too!
