Dear Sentinel

I have a horse. She's a gray thoroughbred, and several times a year I take her to horse shows. We compete in the English riding discipline called dressage. In my last show, I had a lot of rides during the day, and I had a few at night, too.

The rides in the morning went well, but that night, I wasn't feeling very well. Right before I rode into the competition arena for one of my rides, I was feeling really bad. I started praying, and I also asked my dad to pray with me. I've read in Science and Health that another name for God is Mind. God told me that He would help me have this Mind.

I know that there is only one God, and so, since Mind is another name for God, there is only one Mind. Then I saw that both my horse and I could express qualities of Mind—like grace, suppleness, and understanding—and that I could express health and joy.
