Love helped the wren

Mia loves to see the birds in the garden at home. She knows the names for almost all of them. 

One morning before school, Mia heard a loud bang against the windowpane. A bird had flown into the glass. She ran to the window and saw that a wren was lying on the path outside. Mia was sad and wanted to help the bird. She remembered from Christian Science Sunday School that God is Love and that Love is everywhere. She knew she could ask Love, God, what to do. 

Mia likes to think about Love showing her what to do, just like in the hymn she had sung in Sunday School that week. It was called “ ‘Feed My Sheep,’ ” and Mia knew all the words by heart. She thought she could sing it for the wren as a kind of prayer!
