  Blog  > January Writing Prompt: A Skill I Want To Learn January 13, 2021 Since I’m 80, soon to be 81 years old, the life skill I want to learn is how to lay my life in God’s hands so that I won’t be so fearful. Most of the time I don’t consciously depend on Him, but I do consciously pray to God every day. Whenever in recent years, I’ve neglected to pray in the morning, I am out of sorts that day. But beginning in March of 2020, I have never ever been that afraid! That's when our world was hit by COVID-19, a flu virus. It is still present, thousands of people are dying every week.

The first step of unpacking was my taking down boxes that were five and six boxes high.  About two weeks after I’d moved and was in the midst of unpacking, I developed horrendous pain in my ribs.
