Last spring my sister and I were notified entirely unexpectedly of the termination of our lease on the residence we had occupied for fourteen years. The owner of the house, who had lived abroad many years, decided, upon returning home, to remain in Switzerland. He therefore required our home. At the moment we were shocked by the notice. When we became calmer, these words of our Master, Christ Jesus, came to us and remained with us: "What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter" (John 13:7). We knew that the activity of the Christ in human consciousness has been explained in Christian Science and that we could rely on its activity to establish a true sense of home for us.

Shortly after receipt of the notice we had a suitable residence offered us, but unfortunately not in the district we liked so well. We humbly and gratefully accepted the offer. One evening my sister said to me, "Come, let's be quiet and listen to what God, our Father, says about our home." We simply could not free ourselves of the feeling that the new home had somehow been forced upon us; in any case, we were not inwardly happy.
