Allergy symptoms and poison ivy healed

Allergy season: It was on the news; it was the discussion in the grocery line, the playground, the gym. I had never been bothered by it before, but one morning I woke up sneezing and sniffling. It went on all day and just seemed to get worse, and by the evening I was very uncomfortable. I remembered a friend’s concern earlier that day that I might have allergies.

That night, I prayed to see more of God’s constant care and goodness. The lovely hymn that begins, “In atmosphere of Love divine, / We live, and move, and breathe” (Christian Science Hymnal, No. 144) came to mind, and I felt a little bit better. I was still having a challenge in the morning, however. Clearly the thought came: “You must pray about this and be specific.” So I did. I sat up in bed and started by recognizing that God, Father-Mother Love, is right there for each and every one of us, showering us with goodness and love. Every season holds its own wonderful purpose and place, and with no interruption. My simple prayer was, “How can a beautiful rose be anything but good!”
