Love warms the neighborhood

My sister and I live in the same neighborhood. A number of years ago, during a cold winter here in upstate New York, she and I were carpooling to work. She was very upset that morning—someone had “dropped off,” abandoned, a dog in our neighborhood. The dog was frightened and would not allow anyone to get near him. Concerned for the dog, my sister had called the town’s animal control officer, who had suggested shooting it. Not what she expected to hear!

I’ve had many proofs of God’s all-reaching love, so I knew this situation needed the kind of prayer I’ve learned to pray in Christian Science. I have learned and continue to learn how to affirm God’s kingdom right where I am—knowing that even in the darkest, coldest, earthly place, God, Love, is shining. I could bask in the warmth of that divine Love, and I could shine, or express through reflection, that divine Love in this situation.
