We may have had people tell us, "Health and happiness are man's divine heritage. Claim it!" Probably, too, we have all heard that childhood is or should be the happiest time of life because children have no serious responsibilities, are so carefree. That may be the case with some children and their nature, but not with all children.

I know of a little girl who was very lonely for her mother, who had passed on when the girl was only one year old. She had not known her mother, of course, but seeing other children with their mothers and hearing them speak of them caused this child to shed bitter tears. When she asked why her mother passed on, she was told, "It was God's will." I was this child; and when I first learned something of Christian Science, I was glad to find out that God's will is only good.
