Last summer in cherry time, two
little girls were playing one afternoon. As they were
climbing trees, Grace fell from a high tree to the ground.
Eunice came running with white face calling, "O Mrs.
B! Grace has fallen from the tree and will not answer
when I speak to her." I replied, "Be not afraid," and
declared the Truth silently. We found her unconscious, in a
little heap, having struck on her side. We got her into the
house and on the bed. Truth and Love were very real; the
seeming accident very unreal. She regained consciousness,
and they were soon talking and laughing, but as she looked
very white, I asked her if she felt all right. She said her
back and side hurt her very much. I declared Truth, when she
soon said, "I just felt the pain go away," and that was the
last that she ever suffered from the fall. Her face regained
its natural color, her eyes and face were bright and
beautiful all the afternoon. This all occurred in about half
an hour. Both little girls said when she was falling they
thought immediately of Christian Science, as they had become
interested through us.
We are students of Science
and Health, and have most of Mrs. Eddy's writings, also the
Journal and Quarterly.
