I could take my test

The night before my final exam, I went to my friend’s house to see his parrot. I was so happy to see the bird that I could not stop myself from touching it. But as I came closer, the parrot bit my finger.

My finger hurt and was bleeding, so I went home. I asked my mother to pray for me. She told me that because God’s creation is all good, God’s creatures must be harmless.

I was worried because the parrot had bitten me on my writing hand, and I had my test the next day. My mother cared for me and told me not to worry; she was praying and that all was well because God was taking care of me. I am a regular student in the Christian Science Sunday School, where I’ve learned that God loves His children and always protects them.
