Some years ago, we were living in San Antonio and thought we had our lives pretty well situated. Our home was paid for and my husband had a good job where he had been employed about eighteen years. We felt he would be retiring from there. Then there was an unexpected event. The owner of the business where my husband worked passed away, and his widow sold the company. The new owners laid off my husband and many others. We lost eighteen years of what we thought was security.

I was at that time a new student of Christian Science, and I found in the local Christian Science Reading Room an article about employment. I studied this and began to realize that God was my husband's employer; He is man's employer. My husband soon started work on the security staff of a local college.

We lived outside the city, and not long after this the city limits were expanded and our property was absorbed in its growth. Because of our location, the city assessed our property as commercial. This made our taxes exorbitant, and we could not afford the rise in our expenses. We then decided to sell our home and discussed moving back to my husband's hometown in New Hampshire.
