We did this last year and it was great to start again this year!!!!!!

Lila's Log - August 12, 2015 Print E-mail
Lila's Log I’m still basking in the glow of my first visit to St. Mary’s Ozaukee yesterday. Tony, the wonderfully accommodating manager of the ICU unit, told us the results of a study he learned about at a medical/cardiac conference: the phenomenon known as “heart coherence.” When a dog and a human, one of whom is stressed and nervous (as evidenced by “heart rhythm. . . all over the map”), are placed in a room together, a “heart-lock in” begins to occur. As a result of the good feelings (between human and dog), heart rhythms became more “coherent,” meaning that they begin to mimic each other’s. The author, a science/health editor who writes about neuroscience, concluded that the “love was ‘contagious’.”
“Lord, as we try to mimic Your peace and love, enable us to help those who are in desperate need of the rhythm of Your comfort, and let them lock their hearts with Yours.”
