In June 1977, only three weeks after our return to Sydney, my husband left me suddenly. I found myself with very little money, no job, and nowhere to live. I had only one week in which to find accommodation for myself and four domestic animals. Each real estate agent I approached told me there were no houses for rent, and even if there were, no animals would be accepted, and the rent would be far in excess of what I could afford.

During the week I prayed, reasoning with the understanding of Christian Science that I had thus far gained. At one stage, when the situation seemed particularly hopeless, I opened the Christian Science Hymnal at random and saw the word "design." As I read, I was overcome by a sense of peace and the realization that our needs are always met as part of God's design for His creation.
