Dash—in God's care!

Early one Monday morning, my mom and I raced out of the front door as my dad headed out the back door. Apparently we slammed both doors at the same time and the back door opened. When we came home after lunch, I was the first to realize our dog Dash was gone. He is a special member of our family and has been with us for a very long time. We had not been keeping his dog tag on because he is only a house pet. And he had never gone out of our yard. Never.

My mom telephoned my dad, and everyone in my family began searching for him and knowing that he was in his right place—with God—every moment. In Christian Science Sunday School I had learned that all of God's creatures are really spiritual ideas that couldn't be lost or separated from Him. Sometimes this seemed really hard to know, since it looked as if Dash was nowhere to be found. But as I rode my bike through our neighborhood looking for him, I prayed, trusting that we would find him safe and happy.
