Dear Sentinel

One morning I was playing hide-and-seek with my brother. When I threw a sleeping bag over my head, my eye got poked. My mom and I prayed a lot. We called a Christian Science practitioner to pray with us, too. Whenever my eye hurt, I asked my mom to sing "O dreamer" (Hymn 412 in the Christian Science Hymnal). It starts like this: "O dreamer, leave thy dreams for joyful waking." I really like the part that says the Christ comes to "wipe all tears away." My mom said that when we wake up from a bad dream, we know that the dream isn't true. A hurt eye is not true about God's child. God is always keeping us safe. I knew I could wake up. The next day I was healed.
