"Love wipes your tears all away"

[Written Especially for Children]

Ruth had been going to the Christian Science Sunday School ever since she could remember. So when she started in at the kindergarten she felt quite at home learning new things every day.

Best of all, Ruth loved to learn the beautiful words Christ Jesus had spoken in the mountain, when he was telling the people about God. Her Sunday school teacher said these verses were called Beatitudes, which means blessings. Ruth thought it nicer and easier to call them "blessings," for that was what Christ Jesus meant them to be. How kind he must have been to go about the country healing and teaching the people, and how well he knew just the right words of truth they needed to hear when they came to him for healing!

Ruth's favorite verse was, "Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted." She had learned to use this verse almost every day. Whenever she bumped herself at play, or awakened startled in the dark at night, she thought of this blessing. Then, there would always come soft and soothing words of comfort from mother, a loving hand stretched out to help her, and soon the tears would be wiped away.
