I want to share a demonstration of God's ever-presence I had one Thanksgiving vacation. I am a pupil in the Christian Science Sunday School and am in the sixth grade. On a YMCA trip to Death Valley I lost my billfold in a sand dune while I was playing rough-and-tumble. Although my friends and I looked on as many dunes as we could before we had to leave, we did not find the wallet. It contained six dollars and my bicycle registration. I began to know that God is everywhere and all-seeing. I knew He would lead me.

The next day I arrived home, and my mother and I declared there was nothing lost in God's kingdom. With the Concordance to Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, I studied the references on "find" and "found." I continued to trust in God's power. Three weeks later a knock came at our door. A stranger said, "I have found your billfold!" This man told us he was a photographer and had been taking pictures at Death Valley, when he noticed a small corner of something sticking out of the sand. He uncovered the billfold. Although he lived many miles from us, he took the time to return it to me. The interesting thing was that there had been heavy winds and rains during these three weeks, shifting and moving the sand in the desert.

In school studies I apply Christian Science by knowing there is one Mind. One day during an English examination, I couldn't think of a certain part of speech. I turned my thought to God. "The scientific statement of being" by Mrs. Eddy came to me, part of which is "All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all" (Science and Health, p. 468). From a Sunday School teacher I had learned that I reflect Mind, God, and that therefore I always know all I need to know. After I had prayed in this way, the answer for the test question came immediately.
