While grilling steaks one Friday evening, I inadvertently set off the smoke alarm. When I picked up a tea towel to waft in front of the alarm to stop it, a piece of grit or something flew into my eye. It was scratchy and painful, and although my husband looked into my eye, he could not see what was there.
That evening my eye was very uncomfortable and sore. In past years I had gone to the doctor with health problems; however, after taking Christian Science class instruction, I felt confident to apply the teachings of Christian Science to resolve health issues, just as I had been able to resolve other inharmonious situations.
So I started praying to know that I am a spiritual idea of the divine Mind, God, and “a spiritual idea has not a single element of error, and this truth removes properly whatever is offensive,” as Mary Baker Eddy writes in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (p. 463).
