Drought relief on the prairie

There we were —running across a rocky meadow, stumbling through tall grass, pushing against gusts of wind. Drought had made the grass tinder dry, and smoke from a fire sparked by a firecracker was billowing above the prairie. The fire was about one quarter of a mile away from my relative's ranch complex. Well aware of how serious this fire could be in the high plains of Colorado, we would do whatever we could to stop the flames before they burned out of control.

As I ran, the words "God's government" kept roaring through my thought. In my panic I didn't realize it was a healing message from God until it became so insistent that I had to pay attention. It was then that a passage from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy came to mind. It was the spiritual description of wind, which states: "That which indicates the might of omnipotence and the movements of God's spiritual government, encompassing all things" (p. 597).
