MY GRANDDAUGHTER'S HEALING

I was washing up the breakfast dishes while my granddaughter, who is a toddler, was playing nearby. When Katie Rose heard the water running, she came over and said, "Bubble!" She wanted to help, so I told her to go get her little purple stool. A few moments later I heard a loud thump followed by a very unhappy sound from the living room. The stool had been tucked under the coffee table, and when she pulled it out, it hit her hard in the face. Her lip was bleeding and she was screaming.

I picked up Katie Rose and held her tenderly while I assured her that she was all right. And I started to pray immediately. In Science and Health, Mary Baker Eddy assures readers that "accidents are unknown to God" (p. 424), and this is what came to my thoughts first. To me, this meant that God is everywhere and always present, so there couldn't be a moment when Katie Rose was out of His sight or unprotected. One of the synonyms Mary Baker Eddy gives for God is "divine Love," and I prayed to feel Love enveloping both of us right at that moment. Katie Rose was beginning to calm down.
