Walk with Love

(written at age 9)

I had been having a hard time at school with my best friend, named Karen, who was being mean to me. My Sunday School teacher told me I could solve the problem through Christian Science. Since I've learned that Love is a name for God, I decided it would be loving to see Karen as God's child. It would be easy to love God's perfect idea.

One day Karen told me that her ankle hurt. She thought she had sprained it, and she couldn't walk very well. My heel was hurting, too, and I was praying for myself with the Bible verse, "Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you."James 4:8; This verse was in the Christian Science Lesson-Sermon that week, and I read a section of the lesson every morning before school. I wanted to help Karen and told her the verse. She went to a quiet place and thought about it. Soon she told me that her ankle didn't hurt anymore, and it was fine. She was very happy.
