Each successive stage of experience...

"Each successive stage of experience unfolds new views of divine goodness and love" (Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 66). This comforting assurance of our Leader has been proved over and over in my experience as a Christian Scientist. Often the way has seemed extremely rugged, but when obstacles have been overcome, truly each new vista of divine Love has surpassed that which was previously known.

With the hope that it may be of help to another, I should like to write of a recent proof of God's sustaining care. My mother and husband passed on in close succession. In spite of having apparently lost two of my dearest sources of human love, I have become aware of a most wonderful sense of spiritual comfort. At first, grief so overwhelmed me that the only thing I could grasp was that my duty to my children demanded my keeping on in an orderly way. All prospect for joy seemed forever lost.
