Wasp sting healed

One morning last fall, I awakened from a dream. For a fleeting moment, I was tempted to return to the dream to retrieve my purse. The thought put a smile on my face, but I recognized the spiritual import of this experience as it relates to mortal life. As Mary Baker Eddy explains in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures: “Mortal existence is a dream of pain and pleasure in matter, a dream of sin, sickness, and death; and it is like the dream we have in sleep, in which every one recognizes his condition to be wholly a state of mind” (p. 188). I have always appreciated the analogy comparing mortal thought to a dream in contrast to the immortal reality that is the basis of Christian Science healing.

The opportunity to prove this came quickly. Later that same day, I went to check on a family cabin in the woods and disturbed a wasp. As I turned to walk away, the little creature dive-bombed me, hit me on my lower lip, and delivered a sharp sting.
