Understanding eternal Love heals

My eight-year-old son had fallen from a fast-moving bicycle, hit a tree, and seriously wounded his head. Two months later an unsightly, bare scar remained on the top of his head to remind us of the incident. Saddened to see his appearance so marred, I called a Christian Science practitioner for help. She pointed out that his real being as the perfect child of God had never been the victim of an accident and so there could be no effect from something that had never really occurred.

At that moment I gained the strength and determination to stop recounting the experience to others, to give up a demand for sympathy and comfort. Soon, contrary to what medical belief would have predicted, the hair had completely filled in over the bare spot, leaving no evidence of any injury.
