Helping My Cousin

I am very grateful for Christian Science because I know that, no matter what comes up, I can turn to God as we are taught in Sunday School, and there is always the right answer.

I was so glad to be able to help my cousin, Valerie, whose mother had passed on when she was eight years old. Valerie is not a Christian Scientist, so she did not know that there is no birth or death in Truth. Mrs. Eddy says, "Can there be any birth or death for man, the spiritual image and likeness of God?" Science and Health, p. 206;

Valerie often came to spend the night with us, and one night she asked me where her mother had gone. I told her that her mother had gone nowhere but it was mortal mind that had told her that her mother had died. This comforted her so much, and she said that it made her so happy to know where her mother really was, with God, and nothing had really touched her mother—she was just going on. Christ Jesus said, "The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life." John 6:63.
