Gratitude beyond words

The incredible had happened! My GI husband had survived the war, and after six years of living through World War II in England, I was finally with him in America.

We had two lovely little girls and were living in a home we shared with my husband’s parents and grandparents in a safe and peaceful community, when suddenly the peace and security were snatched away at a family gathering when I was told we were on the verge of war again (the Korean War). All my joy and contentment vanished, and I was devastated at the thought of having to live through another war. All I wanted to do was hold my little girls and pray that we would not have to face the horror and danger again.

I shared my distress with my husband’s aunt, and she was very kind and said that even though her son was in the Navy, she knew he would be safe in God’s care. This was an amazing thought to me! No one had ever talked to me about God before. She went on to explain that she had a book all about God and His love and care for us all. The book, of course, was Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. She said that if I would help her in moving to a new apartment, she would buy me the book. What a treasure!
