Faith Following

As I look back over the past I feel constrained to express publicly my heartfelt gratitude to God and to those through whom Life, Truth, and Love have been revealed to me. I have been brought from the "outer darkness," where I wandered without hope and apparently without God, and when every avenue of escape seemed to be cut off, to the strait path which our Master trod, which has been pointed out anew by our Leader, and which is beautifully represented in a picture in her book, "Christ and Christmas." If what I am writing should ever be read by any who are bearing their cross up the hill, and whose path seems beset with fearful odds, let me say, it is not so important how far we have gone, or how far we must go, as it is that we keep going in the right direction. We can do this only by keeping our eyes on our model and following meekly and humbly our guide. The way grows wider, the cross lighter, and the light brighter as we journey on. No effort for good is ever wholly lost, even if to mortal sense it seems so. The good we desire is for us, and it will come to us if we put "self" out of the way. This we must do little by little in order that immortality may come to light. "Not as though I had already attained," but I rejoice in the "grain of mustard seed" or the "little leaven." May God bless Mrs. Eddy and all who contribute to the Sentinel, which every week brings some helpful message.
