One Sunday after we ate lunch my tummy hurt

One Sunday after we ate lunch my tummy hurt. So I went upstairs and played some records that have songs on them about God's love. Some of the songs were hymns, and I got out my own copy of the Christian Science Hymnal and started to sing the hymns by Mrs. Eddy along with the record.

Then Mummy reminded me that I had been telling untruths earlier, and that now I was listening to untruths about myself. She told me that the child of God is truthful and only listens to Truth, which is God. Then I felt better and I was able to eat my ice cream.

I was eight years old when I had this healing. I have been in Sunday School since I left the nursery.
