I was raised in Christian Science, and though I never strayed very far from its teachings, I did not really appreciate its magnitude until after I had had class instruction. Christian Science can and should govern the minutiae as well as the momentous occurrences of our lives, if we apply it. This immediacy of God's government and love and protection are what I am most grateful for.

Along this line, two summers ago, our youngest child, then five years old, was severely bitten on the eye by a dog she had been fondling. I was at the back of our home, playing tennis. On that particular day two of the others playing were surgeons. One was an eye specialist. The wound on my child's eye seemed very severe. The neighbor to whom the dog belonged was most frightened and begged me to "do something." He knew we were Christian Scientists, and I told him all would be well and that the child would be cared for in the only way we knew—through Christian Science treatment and through God's ever-present Love. I calmed him and he left.
