Each day I find myself saying, "Thank You, Father," for each day I see God's law protecting me and mine, guiding, guarding, and governing us all. As we obey God's law daily, we see it operating in our behalf.

About ten years ago our little three-year-old son began to breathe very loudly and with much effort each night. At first we chuckled over such snoring, but as other more alarming symptoms became evident, we realized that we must act quickly to apply Gods law. We began to work with one of our dedicated and courageous Christian Science practitioners.

At one point I was very much frightened by the appearance of the boy's chest. He had lost weight. Not only did his ribs show, but the bones appeared to be growing in an abnormal shape that I described to the practitioner as pigeon-breasted. I believe this was the turning point, for she instantly denied the error by declaring firmly, "You never saw that!" She then explained clearly that the real child of God's creating embodies normalcy and harmony and can never be thought of as less than perfect.
