About twenty-five years ago our young son drowned on our farm. When we found him, a teen-age nephew who was visiting us immediately gave him artificial respiration. My husband, who was not a Christian Scientist, called a doctor. Time passed, and despite all efforts the boy never regained consciousness.

Afterward, though I was deeply grief-stricken, I did feel God's nearness and tender, comforting love. When expressions of sympathy were voiced, I particularly could feel the strength of Love's gentle touch sustaining me.

Later, it came to me so clearly that Christ Jesus constantly saw the spiritual idea of Life, which is eternal, and therefore he knew and could demonstrate his dominion over disease and death.
