The following experiences have...

The following experiences have so clearly proved to me the availability of God's immediate presence, as learned through the study of Christian Science, that I should like to share them with others.

First came a healing which occurred while my children were very young. While I was putting them to bed one evening, a sharp object struck the elder child in the eye, and to all appearances the injury to the eye was alarming. My first thought was to call a practitioner, and I asked my husband to do so. He refused, declaring that a doctor was necessary and that he would try to locate one. I was at first resentful. Then I thought, Oh, if I could only call a practitioner, everything would be all right. I shall never forget the "still small voice" which said, "You have God, and God is right here." Immediately the child opened his eyes, and through the tears he had been shedding, he saw the street light outside the window and said, "Mama, the light is winking at me." All crying ceased; I put him to bed, and a few minutes later he was asleep. When my husband returned, he had not been able to locate a doctor, and it was very evident that none was needed. The child awakened in the morning perfectly free.

Secondly I should like to tell of a proof of protection which occurred many years later. It seemed necessary for a friend and me to make a business call, and we had to travel over roads which were very icy. On our return trip a strong wind came up. I felt no sense of insecurity, for I knew the driver to be very competent; but a few seconds before the wind started to blow, I suddenly felt the need of doing some protective work in Christian Science. The back of the car began to sway, and almost without warning the car careened across the road, jumped a rather wide and deep ditch, righted itself, continuing parallel to the road until, within a few feet of a telephone pole, it returned to the road and continued on. All this happened in a very few seconds.
