Gratitude knows no bounds when one has been through a trying experience and has proved the truth to be adequate. Such was my test of the truth while living with my mother on a homestead, far from any human help and a greater distance from telephone. One stormy night I was scarcely able to speak from exhaustion. Work was begun, as we are taught in Christian Science, and in about one half hour, with both silent and audible declarations of the power of divine Love, this extreme exhaustion vanished. In the Lesson-Sermon for that week we had this quotation from Science and Health (p. 380): "Truth is always the victor. Sickness and sin fall by their own weight. Truth is the rock of ages, the headstone of the corner, 'but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.'"

An instance of guidance was made manifest when we decided to move to the city, after living the required time on the homestead. Upon our arrival, although there seemed to be a great scarcity of good furnished houses, we were led most beautifully to a lovely place, and, through an unforeseen avenue, I obtained a good position. These manifestations of God's goodness to His children at all times were not brought about without earnest, prayerful work. Among the many Bible quotations we studied was one that was fairly illumined and a great help along the way, "Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared." This text to express the fact that God not only had prepared the place, but would bring one into it.
