Key thoughts

Waking up in the middle of the night, and unable to get back to sleep my mind started wandering! 
And I didn`t like where it went.

I found myself thinking what would I do, if I were taken ill in the night and the emergency people needed to get in.  My front door was locked, the key taken out of the lock as always, the back door was locked too.  Ok, no problem if I was able to go downstairs, but what if I wasn`t.   How would they get to me.   

It made me think, should I somehow keep a key outside somewhere, in the way that people used to leave their keys under the doormats when they went out, or under a stone.   But, Imagine doing that today!.    Should I put one in the shed - yet in the dark it would be hard to find, and in these days of security would that be safe to have one there in the daytime. 

I wonder if anyone else, especially anyone on their own, has pondered this and if they`ve come up with a solution.

You know, these days you can buy special key boxes:

You screw the box next to your door (or where ever you want to). The key is inside the box - and the box can only be opened if you know the code for it. And when necessary you can change the code. Would that give you peace?

But what ever the case is, you're in safe hands. God has the power to make miracles to get you saved if needed.

That`s a good idea, Eija, I`ll look into that.

Sorry to hear you're unwell, Ivy. Eija's idea for the key sounds like a good one.
