I found her

(For children)

Fluffy was the name of my pet rabbit. She had a nice hutch for a home in our backyard, and often I would let her out of the hutch to run and play around the yard. She liked running in the grass and nibbling it. Since she didn't know where our yard ended, I had to watch her carefully.

Late one afternoon, after putting Fluffy back in her cage, I forgot to latch the cage door. The next morning, when I went to feed her before school, she was gone. I was really worried, because we lived in a large neighborhood, and there were lots of dogs. The dogs didn't know they weren't supposed to hurt rabbits.

I didn't know where to begin looking, and besides that it was almost time to leave for school. I was in the fourth grade and had been going to the Christian Science Sunday School since I was four. I knew I could depend on God's help. I knew Fluffy was held in God's love and so she couldn't really be lost.
