Healed of yellow jacket stings

On one beautiful day in August I was trimming ivy from a small wooden bridge in our front yard. I inadvertently disturbed a nest of "yellow jacket" wasps. They swarmed me and began stinging me. At first I panicked and ran screaming into the back yard. Then I calmed down and began to think the Truth that God has given me dominion over every living thing. I also thought about St Paul when he was bitten by a viper. He was calm, confident and unharmed. I tried to finish the trimming job but the wasps were still angry and so I went in the house. The numerous stings were burning and swollen. I began to read in Science and Health and as I read the burning stopped and the swelling began to go away. I was calm and comforted. An added blessing from this incident is that I was healed of some angry thoughts I had been harboring for a long time. The wasps demonstrated to me how senseless (Mindless) anger really is.

Healed after a fall

Recently I was sightseeing in Montreal. I was on a walk about with my husband and some friends admiring the old world architecture when I tripped and fell hard flat on my face. It felt like I had broken my nose and my front teeth. I promptly declared to my self "There are no accidents. I am loved and completely protected by God." People were making a fuss over me and I assured them that I was just fine. My husband said it looked like I had cut my lip. I thought "Oh no! If there is any evidence of injury these people will not believe that I am all right". The cut disappeared. I had no pain or discomfort from the fall. The next day my lip was very slightly swollen. My friends teased me that some people pay high prices to have their lips made to look full like mine looked. We continued to enjoy our time in Montreal.

I am so grateful for Christian Science and for our dear Lord and Savior. Thanks be to God.

Healing through spiritual understanding

Last week I woke up with a very painful sore throat. I first thought I could deal with this quickly and go back to sleep but I kept having fearful thoughts of illness and contagion. I got up and began reading in Science and Health. As I read I began to discover some errors in my thinking that had nothing to do with the sore throat. As my thought was corrected and I gained understanding the sore throat just vanished.

Praise be to God!
