One day I was helping my mother in the kitchen, and as I poured boiling water off some macaroni, the pan slipped and the water spilled all over my front. Mother took me upstairs and read me hymns from the Christian Science Hymnal. One of the hymns that helped me the most is by Mrs. Eddy, and it begins, "Brood o'er us with Thy shelt'ring wing." It has a part that says, "The arrow that doth wound the dove/Darts not from those who watch and love" (Hymn No. 30). These words reminded me that I am protected by God.

We also called a Christian Science practitioner, who told me to think about the Bible story of the three Hebrew men in the fiery furnace, and how they were protected from being burned because of their faith in God.
