PROCURING A SUMMER RESIDENCE WITH EASE

Almost everyone, either as an individual or as a member of a family group, gives some thought during each year to vacation or recreation plans. With some, these plans are undertaken with confidence and carried through with success. With others, however, uncertainty about conditions at one's place of business, about the weather, about the availability of necessary money, about the health of those involved, as well as the unforeseen events which often occur, make the vacation project a time of anxiety and exhaustion. The prevalence of this state of affairs has led to the many jokes about going back to work and routine in order to get a rest!

On page 220 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy uses a forceful and refreshing phrase that should help to alleviate the burdens of the would-be vacationer. It occurs in the middle of a paragraph in which she has given several illustrations to show that it is natural to enjoy the various phenomena of nature rather than to be harmed by them. She states, "The snowbird sings and soars amid the blasts; he has no catarrh from wet feet, and procures a summer residence with more ease than a nabob."
