Hello, good thoughts! Goodbye, bad thoughts!

When I was a little kid, I sometimes had nightmares so scary that I’d wake up in the middle of the night. When this happened, I’d think back to some helpful things I was learning in Sunday School.

We had learned to “stand porter at the door of thought” (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 392). We learned to let in only thoughts that were good and came from God. Curled up in my bed after a nightmare, I remembered that I could “close the door” on scary thoughts and welcome in good and loving thoughts from God.
