Mrs. Eddy writes in The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany (p. 290): "Divine Love is never so near as when all earthly joys seem most afar." Over the years I have been grateful for God's nearness in many challenging situations, but I am especially thankful for a healing that took place during my first flight across the Atlantic on a business trip. I had dinner with some friends before the flight. Then, not long after takeoff, I became extremely ill. I lay on the floor of the plane at the rear unable to move and periodically losing consciousness.

A Christian Science practitioner happened to be on the flight and was quick to help me. He asked me to remember the spiritual fact of man's likeness to God that we read of in Genesis (1:26): "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness." I knew I could rejoice that I was that likeness and never could be anything else.
