Peaceful Days
Bring Changes
By RUTH MILLETT
Funny world all of a sudden, isn't
it—with everything working in re
verse?
Instead of worrying over what is
going to be rationed next, we are
wondering what is going to be the
next item to go off the ration list.
Instead of worrying about being
frozen to our jobs we are worrying
about whether or not we will hold
them.
Instead of trying to get a few
pairs of sheer rayon stockings a
head. we are wondering if what we
have will last until nylons are back
on the market.
Instead of that wistful phrase
' when the war is over" we are now
saying “Now that the war is over.”
Instead of fretting over scarce
articles, we say philosophically.
Well, it won't be iong now.”
Instead of worrying over ration
stamps, we are adding up discharge
points for every member of the
family in service.
Instead of saying "How many
points.” when w r e hold up a can of
fruit or vegetables we are again
asking how much?" .
Were riding again instead of
walking, and finding that "fill 'er
up" rates high among the world's
most beautiful phrases.
Instead of worrying, were relax
ing.
Instead of making plans for a va
cation at home, we’re wondering
where we can go.
"When will he be shipped home?"
has ieplaced “When will he go over
-seas?" as the big. important ques
tion.
Peace- it's wonderful.

Jesus, which was crucified He is not

Mary Baker Eddy writes in "Science
and Health with Key to the Scriptures "
Jesus could give his temporal life into
his enemies' hands; but when his earth
mission was accomplished, his spiritual
life, indestructible and eternal, was
found forever the same. He knew that
matter had no life and that real life is.
God: therefore he could no more be
separated from his spiritual Life than
God could be extinguished. "
