In our text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures"...

In our text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, we are told of "the all-hearing and all-knowing Mind, to whom each want of man is always known, and by whom it will be supplied" (p. 7). I had an experience about three years ago which unfolded to me the meaning of this statement. I had a financial obligation to meet, and as the time drew near I began to worry for fear I should not be able to cancel my indebtedness. One night, as I was thinking about it, these words of David came to my anxious thought: "My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him." They comforted me and quieted my anxious thought, until I fell asleep repeating them. The next day I had a visit from a friend whom I had not seen for over two years. During our visit she asked if I had ever received anything from some stock which I held in a western company. I said no; that I had almost ceased to think about it. "Well," she said, "I have heard that the president of the company, the friend who interested you, has become a rich man, and I know of an instance where he recalled a certificate from a woman and gave her in exchange stock that paid dividends; why not write to him about yours?" I did so and by return mail recevied a check for the full amount of my investment and a request that I should keep my certificate in case the company should ever pay any dividends.

As I looked at the check I again thought upon the psalmist's words, —"My soul, wait thou only upon God." I make this public acknowledgement of the divine goodness to one who is trying to love and obey Him in all things.

I wish also to express my ever-growing love and gratitude to our Leader. who has made it possible for me to understand in a degree that we have access to the infinite Mind in our trials. —MARY H. BARKLEY, Chicago, III.
