At a time when I understood little of what Christian Science teaches, I nevertheless experienced a beautiful blessing. We were living on a farm. It was a particularly dry summer; every growing thing yearned for water. Though I put into practice what I had learned, no visible change occurred.

Then I stayed for a few days with relatives in a large city, where I had the opportunity to attend a Sunday service in a Church of Christ, Scientist. As I entered the church my eye caught the following citation, on a wall, from Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy (p. 494): "Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need." And that was just what I needed to understand— divine supply of all our needs, rain included. Being early, I found time to contemplate this, and it became very clear to me as fundamental law. The next day I received a letter from my little daughter stating: "It now is Sunday morning and we expected that we would go out, but heavy rains make it impossible."
