Poison ivy healed

I had a wonderful healing last summer, My husband and I had just bought a new house, and I was digging up some flowers to transplant them to our new yard. My brother was kindly helping me with this difficult task on that hot day. While digging out some asters, he pointed out some poison ivy in the garden nearby. So I tried to be careful and not touch any of it.

Well, by the next day I had poison ivy all over my right arm. At first I was frustrated and mad at myself. I felt like the poison ivy was just one more burden on top of the burden of moving to a new house. So I called a Christian Science practitioner to pray with me.

At night I put a sock over my hand and forearm so I wouldn't be tempted to scratch. By the third or fourth day, I was very ready to be healed and to stop feeling frustrated. I prayed again and really listened to hear God. who I knew was perfect Truth, talk to me.
