When our third child started kindergarten, he had a wonderful healing in Christian Science. He was accidentally struck in the face with a baseball bat, and his nose was injured. We called a Christian Science practitioner, started praying immediately, and made the child comfortable on his bed. He was patient and comfortable that night and continued to be patient, showing no signs of pain, the whole two weeks following, while, in his words, God was "fixing" his nose.

Later in the evening of the day this occurred, I gained stability by holding fast to the command Moses gave the children of Israel at the impasse of the Red Sea (Ex. 14:13), "Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord...." I looked up the rest of the verse and found: "which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever." During this time I acknowledged that the salvation of the Lord was going to be shown to us. In Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures Mary Baker Eddy defines "salvation" as "Life, Truth, and Love understood and demonstrated as supreme over all; sin, sickness, and death destroyed" (p. 593). I reasoned in this instance that the "Egyptians" we were not going to see then or ever again were material methods of healing. We continued to pray, and there was a perfect healing. During this time I reminded myself often of Mrs. Eddy's words (ibid., p. 264), "Where shall the gaze rest but in the unsearchable realm of Mind?"
