A few summers ago my husband and I spent two weeks at the home of friends in Pasadena, California. These friends had to be away during part of our visit, and so they entrusted their home to our care. One afternoon after I had been out all day, I reached into my purse but could not find the house key. We were relieved when the neighbor was able to let us in with an extra key. But we still felt responsible for the lost key.

Because we had traveled a total of about seventy miles that day, making several stops both in Los Angeles and Pasadena, I began to accept the suggestion that we would never see that key again! However, my husband insisted that we search for it, and we prepared ourselves for the search through prayer. As we prayed and studied meaningful passages in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, the doubts that had beset me subsided. I recognized this as an opportunity to see evidence of God's omniscience and omnipresence.
