The most difficult trial of my life came when my beloved husband passed on. And, although a sweet and beautiful human companionship of twenty years had come to a close, I am grateful to say that an intensified study of Christian Science lifted me above the false picture that was presented to me.
With my healing of grief came a calm and abiding peace and a fuller understanding of Jesus' words (Matt. 6:33), "Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Also, the passage from John (16:22), "Your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you," had a new significance for me. I found that joy comes directly from God to man and that is why it cannot be taken away. I learned the importance of letting go of the past but remembering to "hold fast that which is good" (I Thess. 5:21).
Much good unfolded for me in the months following this experience, and continued unfoldment led to class instruction. This experience cannot really be described. I can only say that I was called to witness a sunrise, the wonder, glory, and radiant splendor of which continues to dawn in my consciousness and unfold new views of grandeur and loveliness each day as I joyously strive to assimilate the harvest of this blessed experience.
