"Upon Life's shore"

[Of Special Interest to Juniors]

Helen had come to the seacoast village to spend her school vacation with her aunt and uncle and their two boys. Helen liked to swim and was on the junior high school swimming team.

Even though she had looked forward all semester to a vacation on the coast, Helen had confessed to her mother at the end of the term that she did not feel completely comfortable about traveling so far from home alone and about swimming in the open ocean. Her mother had reminded her of Mrs. Eddy's words in "Retrospection and Introspection" (p. 61): "God is everywhere. 'There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard;' and this voice is Truth that destroys error and Love that casts out fear."

Then Helen had looked in the Bible concordance under the word "waves" and had found this verse (Ps. 93:4): "The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea."
