02172016 Touch the Sky, Hillsong United, Live Inspired, Sticky Note Found

In the lyrics to ‘Touch the Sky’ Hillsong United paints a picture of …dazzling heights too vast to climb… so high to fall… where heaven’s love sweeps low… Your heart beating… Your soul breathing… You found your life when laid down… Your Upward falling… your Spirit soaring… you touch the sky… When your knees hit the ground! Life is like the lyrics painted in this song. When we hold on to small things, we have a small impact; but if we let go, God can give us something much larger. Do you need to bend low to find yourself lifted up! What treasure waits within Your scars? The gift of freedom gold can’t buy… You bought the world and sold your heart… You find the Most High God at your feet again… You surrender your love to Him and your soul will dance high on the Wings of Forever!

Falling TVs Hurt Kids

falling-tv-childDr. Gary Smith, a pediatric specialist that works in emergency rooms in Ohio, says, ‘‘This is a problem that is increasing at an alarming rate.’’

Falling televisions sent about 200,000 US children to the emergency room over the last 20 years. Smith, president of the Child Injury Prevention Alliance, the reason he is asking for parents to be aware is because the injury rate has climbed substantially in recent years for these sometimes deadly accidents.

Doctors and safety experts say better awareness is needed about the dangers — especially the risks of putting heavier, older TV sets on top of dressers and other furniture that young children may try to climb on.

Most injuries are in kids under 5; head and neck injuries, including concussions, are the most common.
