When my husband retired a few years ago, we decided to relocate to a sunny southern state that we had visited many times and that we loved. We then put our house up for sale. It was on leased land on a small lake, and we had invested much time and money in it. However, the suggestion came that it would be very hard, even impossible, to get a fair price for it. But we had been students of Christian Science for many years and knew that "with God all things are possible," as Christ Jesus said (Matt. 19:26). And, as Mrs. Eddy writes (Science and Health, p. 206): "In the scientific relation of God to man, we find that whatever blesses one blesses all, as Jesus showed with the loaves and the fishes,—Spirit, not matter, being the source of supply."

Soon we had two prospective buyers very interested in our house, but both had property to sell first. Meanwhile, to our surprise, try as we would, and listen for God's directing as we did, we couldn't decide on a definite place in the southern state to move to. Finally we took our house off the market for several months.
