A Proof of God's Protecting Power

A ray of Truth and Love so bright shone into our home in June, 1900, that ever since I have felt I must write and tell of it.

One warm day toward evening my three year old boy was being undressed for bed. Suddenly, without any warning, he ran toward the open window, and pushing against the screen, it fell out with the child on top of it to the lawn below from the second story window. At the time I was in the adjoining room, and my daughter ran through the hall exclaiming at the top of her voice that Arthur had fallen out of the window. In a second the house was in a commotion. With no thought of fear, I instantly declared "He is God's child, and no harm can come to one of God's children." All the way going down stairs I endeavored to realize Truth's presence and power. When I reached the child he had been carried into the house, and was crying in a frightened way, but not as if in pain.

As I took him in my arms I said, "He is all right," although many fears were being expressed aloud about broken bones and internal injuries. The child said he wanted to go to bed, and a few minutes after being put in bed, he was sleeping peacefully, in the usual way, and did not wake until morning.
