"To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings," writes Mary Baker Eddy in the first lines of the Preface to "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." My life has been so blessed by Christian Science that I should like to tell of God's healing, guidance, and protecting care.

During our son's first year, a physical condition manifested itself which was quite disturbing to my husband and me. Although not diagnosed, it would probably have been called a rupture. We clung steadfastly to the truth that the boy was in reality God's perfect child. With the help of a practitioner, the child was healed in a very short time. At no time did he appear to suffer any discomfort. How rewarding it is to put our full trust in God!

One day I was particularly conscious of God's loving care. Our son, who was about two years old, was playing on the back lawn under a large tree. I came out to water the flowers, and he moved from the tree to a spot near me. Suddenly, with no warning, a huge limb fell to the ground and landed right where the child had been playing just a few moments before. How grateful we were for this loving protection!
