No more back pain

Helping care for my grandchildren is a privilege and a joy. For several weeks last year my daughter-in-law needed some extra help caring for her two young children, so I went to help her on days when my son was away on business.

Prior to going to their home, I felt a pain in my lower back after moving something heavy. I had begun some study of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy to help me deny, on the basis of God’s allness, this false claim. However, there was a frequent need to lift and carry each of my grandchildren and to play with them on the floor, and the back pain grew severer. I also felt unable to pray for myself effectively.

When I returned home at the end of the week and got out of the car, I found it impossible to stand upright. The following day, a Sunday, I was still bowed over, and was able to move only slowly with a walking stick for support. I had to ask a fellow church member to take my place as Second Reader for that Sunday service because I felt I was unable to go to church. I knew I needed to be more committed to devoting time to pray about this situation.
