The Sun is Shining

Some time ago, while working on a piece of work which seemed quite discouraging and gave poor returns, I found myself in tears. Suddenly turning and looking out of the window, I was quite surprised, and said to myself, "Why, the sun is shining!" It so changed my thought that I found peace at once.

In speaking for Christian Scientists in this age, we may say that the health, harmony, and peace which they enjoy are not in themselves, but belong to the Principle that governs them, which Principle is God, Good. While we keep in line with our Principle we have a never-ending source to draw from.

While learning my way in Christian Science I have had many proofs of God's love and power. Learning to love Christian Science, trying to live it and make it my own, I have been led out of darkness into light. I have learned the unreality of some discords as naturally as a child learns his lesson in school.
