One night my friend, Ginger, came over to spend the night
One night my friend, Ginger, came over to spend the night. We slept together in a double bed. A few minutes after we had gotten into bed, my friend got an earache and started crying. (She was eight, going on nine.) I was scared at first and didn't know what to do. (I was only ten.) But then I remembered that God's loving arms were all around. I recited "the scientific statement of being" out loud, which starts out, "There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter," and is found on page 468 in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, and told her she was God's perfect child. No evil, nothing, could harm her. But she still kept on crying.
Then I remembered Ginger felt bad when people slept with their backs toward her, so I turned my back on her and ignored her crying. Pretty soon Ginger said, "Why are you turning your back on me?"
