"BLEST BE THE TIE THAT BINDS."

Once, just before Thanksgiving, while thinking of the wide continent which separated me from home and loved ones, a feeling of loneliness and sadness came over me for an instant. Then came also the words which a Christian Scientist had spoken only a few weeks before: "Whenever there seems to be a lack or need in your experience, that simply indicates the scientific fact that the seeming need is already supplied by God's gracious abundance. Then give thanks with your whole heart, because you have learned in Christian Science that God's supply is ever at hand."

So I thanked God for His already rich gifts to me, especially for the gift of friendship. Almost the next mail brought a package containing fourteen letters from kind friends in my home church, who had thus chosen to send to me a Thanksgiving meal of encouragement, cheer, inspiration, and love. Through each letter was woven the golden thread of gratitude for Christian Science, which is hourly binding coast and coast, continent and continent. closer and firmer in God's indissoluble bands of Christian unity. "Blest be the tie that binds."
