When my husband was called...

When my husband was called into the service, I was able to prove true what our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy, says in the textbook, Science and Health (p.574), "The very circumstance, which your suffering sense deems wrathful and afflictive, Love can make an angel entertained unawares." This was indeed a trying experience, but because of the progress and growth made during that time, I am most grateful for it.

We felt it wise to keep our apartment for our infant daughter and me to live in, and to trust God completely for protection, comfort, and supply. During this time I was often asked my husband's rank and how I was able to manage financially. I never at any time regarded husband or the government as my source of supply. I constantly knew that "his allowance was a continual allowance given him of the king, a daily rate for every day" (II Kings 25:30). I was never concerned with the time factor, knowing with each and every expense that"all good is mine now." I bought whatever it was necessary for us to have and continued to tithe for my church contribution. To say that our needs were met would be expressing it inadequately, for like the cruse of oil belonging to the woman (I Kings 17), our supply poured in. It came through many unexpected channels, liberally, unstintingly, without measure.

My husband was wonderfully protected while serving with an infantry rifle company in the European theater of operations. The ninety-first Psalm blessed us both.
