Farm dog quickly healed

Raising three children on a farm in Northern Minnesota taught me to turn us continually to the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, for healing. One passage our family frequently studied states: “All of God’s creatures, moving in the harmony of Science, are harmless, useful, indestructible. A realization of this grand verity was a source of strength to the ancient worthies. It supports Christian healing, and enables its possessor to emulate the example of Jesus. ‘And God saw that it was good’ ” (pp. 514–515).

One evening several months ago, just at dusk, I was walking our three horses out to pasture. Stopping at the barn, I grabbed a convenient piece of twine, and using it as a halter, led the gentle gelding out toward the gate about half a mile away. Our two frisky Halflinger draft horses were happily running circles around us, as the two big hunting dogs, Rowdy and Ruckus, were at their heels. (My husband has taught them to be cattle dogs as well.) It was a glorious, warm evening after a very long winter, and the atmosphere was one of gratitude and joy.
