One morning as I was getting ready to go to work, a friend...

One morning as I was getting ready to go to work, a friend knocked on the door and told me my son had been involved in a car accident, and was terribly hurt. He had identified my son to the police himself. He said, "You must go to the scene right away."

As I was getting dressed, I was thinking of what "the scientific statement of being" says (see Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mrs. Eddy, p. 468): that man is spiritual, the image of God. Then I prayed the Lord's Prayer. On the way, I was holding to the fact that I had no other consciousness but that of God's goodness and I would have no other mind to guide me before divine Mind.

I had been studying the Christian Science Bible Lesson that morning, and my son had come to my thought. Not knowing what had happened at that particular time, I had affirmed that God is in control of all His children, and that in that control God takes care of all my family, and the universe.
