Here's a useful video on how to get up off of the floor if you fall when you are alone. This will not work in every situation. Lack of strength or carpeting would make it much harder. I do recommend having a chair in every room of your house if there is space for that since it would make this easier.
My mom fell around 6 times last year. Because of her limited mobility we had to call the emergency services a number of times to get her up when my husband wasn't home. I really encourage trying to keep some muscle tone and flexibility through intentional exercise as you go into your mid to later years of life. I want to work on this more myself after watching my Mom's difficulties with this. Anyway, it's something I think about because I never know when I'll get the next call that she's down nor how bad it will be. Her last fall was quite bad because she hit her head on a side table.

Isaiah 43:20 The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen.
A Pool in the Wilderness
by Sarah Lynn Jackson
The Lord Everlasting,
The Creator of All,
Giveth strength to the weary,
And lifts them that fall.
Thy God is e’er with thee,
So be not dismayed;
He will uphold thee
When thou art afraid.

Zechariah 13:1 In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness.
Romans 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
Revelation 1:4-6 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Here is a tutorial for a simple watercolor card done by Sharon Cullen. One way to make this easier would be to use watercolor greeting cards that are already pre-cut and folded and just paint directly onto the card, skipping the torn edge look. Also, you could do this with cheap watercolor paints and still get an acceptable result. Be adventuresome and mix your colors for more interest.
This project is easy enough that some kids would enjoy trying it. If you don't have a stamp to use for the greeting on the front, these cards will look pretty without, or you can write one on a bit of card stock and glue it on the front.
As I like to mention as a reminder - I do not have any control over the ads that may show up on these videos, or over the "suggested" links offered at the end. :-)

What was this about? I had questions and thoughts.
Of course, I'd seen similar things before. The Mennonites, Branhamites (followers of William Marion Branham), Gothardites, various Pentacostals and Church of God, and others exhibit similar behaviors. It's hard not to notice their weirdness sometimes, even when you want to not notice and to be compassionate or kind.
But, what does it mean? What does it potentially show about the group's view of women?

Romans 8:35-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
3 John 2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
