MULTIPLE BEE STINGS QUICKLY HEALED

One day a couple of summers ago, a friend and I, who were in charge of our Christian Science branch church's outdoor maintenance program, entered a wooded lot to check on the condition of the trees.

As I wildly brushed them away, I turned to prayer to quell my initial shock.

This immediately enabled me to turn my thoughts away from the acute discomfort. With this spiritual truth in the lead, I quieted down instantly, and began to assert my dominion over the whole incident. Fifteen bees had stung me.
