The Children's Part

[Written Especially for Children]

In the spring and early summer there is, in certain regions, a constant procession of happenings that bring to adults and children alike a sense of renewal and joy. The birds return to cheer us with their song; the grass springs up in its fresh and lovely greenness; the gay flowers spread their beauty and fragrance everywhere; tender buds swell on the trees, and tiny leaflets unfurl until the trees are clothed in their beautiful summer dress, giving shelter and refreshment to all.

It is natural that all this loveliness should make us think of God, the Giver of all good, since as Mrs. Eddy tells us on page 191 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," "By its own volition, not a blade of grass springs up, not a spray buds within the vale, not a leaf unfolds its fair outlines, not a flower starts from its cloistered cell." And it is natural, too, that we should wish to let our liver express loveliness, beauty, and freshness, which we see symbolized in nature.
