Elaine Helps Gary

Breakfast is usually a busy, happy time at Elaine and Gary's house. But one morning the talking and laughter were spoiled by an unhappy sound. Gary was crying. He climbed down from his chair with a sad face.

He wanted to lie down because his stomach hurt. Mother made him comfortable on the davenport. Then she put on a record of hymns with words by Mary Baker Eddy. Gary had heard these songs at the Christian Science Sunday School where he and Elaine went each Sunday. His favorite was first on the record. It begins, "Shepherd, show me how to go." Christian Science Hymnal, No. 304.

While Gary listened, Mother helped Elaine get ready for school. Then Elaine hurried into the front room to spend a few minutes with Gary.
