Sandy Has a Healing of Ivy Poisoning

[For children]

Sandy loved the woods near her home, particularly in the spring of the year when trees were coming into bud and everything looked fresh and new. Every afternoon after school she walked in the woods, searching for dogtooth violets, spring beauties, and other delicately colored wildflowers. She knew all their names and pressed some of them in a scrapbook.

These were happy days for Sandy in the out-of-doors. She helped her mother with a little wildflower garden they had made at the edge of the woods. She gave the flowers extra water when they needed it and pulled out grass and weeds which crowded in among the lovely blooms.

One day when Sandy came home from the woods, she looked at her arm, which was bumpy and red, and said to her mother crossly: "I have poison ivy. I'm never going back into the woods again!" Mother suggested that they sit on the back porch and discuss what Christian Science could do about this problem. Through her study of Science Sandy was learning that she could trust God to meet her every need. She could depend on God the way Christ Jesus did.
