Throughout our marriage Christian Science has met and mastered many challenges. An understanding of the ever-presence of God has sustained us continuously in the healing of contagious illnesses of our two children, in matters of income and supply, of home and employment.

Recently I was tearing down an old wooden fence in our backyard. The rotting post gave with the first blow of the ax, and I fell heavily onto the pile of boards that lay around it. As I arose I was startled to see a board clinging to my left hand by a rusty nail imbedded in my wrist. To conquer my fear, I held resolutely to the fact that God knows nothing of accidents. I extracted the nail and prayed to replace the belief of infection with the purity of God's goodness and my reflection of this purity. After I washed my paintstained hands with gasoline, I asked my wife to pray for me.
