Truth detector

I’m new to Christian Science, and I started more fully understanding it this year. I love how it can help me in any situation, big or small. It makes me happier every day, and my view of others has changed for the better. 

My family and I were about to fly on a plane. We were going to Massachusetts for our Christmas vacation, but we had to go through security first. The airport was taking new security measures and using a new walk-through machine. The lady in charge told us that sometimes it was over-sensitive, programmed to detect even chemicals from some shampoos. 

I had never set off the metal detector before, but I set off this machine. They couldn’t tell what did it, and I didn’t know either. Because of this, they had to wipe my palms with a sterile cloth to check if I’d been handling any chemicals. Well, that didn’t fix things, either. (Afterward, we figured out that I had super glue on my skin from when I’d been making some of my Christmas gifts.)
