Right where we needed to be
As a lifelong Christian Scientist, I have had many proofs of God’s goodness, love, and kindness. Father-Mother God loves all His children, and a recent experience showed that fact to me very clearly.
I am a Christian Science nurse, and a fellow Christian Science nurse and I were out riding our bikes after work. I asked him if he wanted to learn how to Geocache. (Geocaching is a kind of hi-tech scavenger hunt where people hide “caches,” or small containers, sometimes with messages or fun items inside, and log the coordinates so people can search for them and find them using a smartphone app.) My friend agreed to learn, so we went to the coordinates of a nearby cache, hunted around for a bit, and found it. We then went looking for another one. This one was off the paved bike path, and we followed a rough, narrow dirt trace around the edge of a lake. We got close, dropped our bikes, and began looking.
The area was very brushy, and there was no clear view of anything. We were looking for a small cylinder about six inches in size. After thrashing around through the foliage for a while, I noticed something that looked like a paper bag behind a rather large bush, close to the lake. I asked my friend, “Is that a paper bag?”
