I live in the country and our periodicals come to me like old friends, tried and true. I receive so much help and encouragement from them that I thought an experience which I had might help some mother to conquer fear. All my life I had suffered from fear; and if Christian Science had done nothing more for me than to help me in this particular, I would be deeply grateful for it. In Christian Science I have learned that divine Love governs me and that it is my duty to rejoice always. On account of her vocation, my daughter was obliged to be out two or three evenings a week, which seemed a great trial to her father and myself. One stormy evening she was detained until late. I had sent to the station for her, but she did not come. The time passed for the next train; her father walked the floor and told me of the dangers to which she was exposed in a large city like New York. I became so filled with fear that I went into another room to be alone with God. As I sat there, "The Mother's Evening Prayer" by our dear Leader (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 389) came to me, and as I repeated the words, "His arm encircles me, and mine, and all," I realized that my daughter was divinely protected and sweet peace came to me. I was so glad that the hymn read, "and all," for I knew that there were other young girls who were seemingly alone in the world. In a short time my daughter returned safely. This beautiful hymn has helped me many times and I am constantly finding new thought in it.
