When my retirement came, I was a little fearful of the future

When my retirement came, I was a little fearful of the future. I wondered how my wife and I would manage on a much reduced income. How happy I have been to prove, through the demonstration of Christian Science, that such fears are groundless. Study of the Bible and Mrs. Eddy's writings, regular attendance at branch church services and meetings, participation in branch church activities—all these have been undertaken with a real desire to bless my fellowman. As a result, not only have I been kept happily occupied, but all of our needs continue to be met. I have also enhanced my skills. Soon after retirement I taught myself to use the typewriter. This has been a great help, particularly with my church work.

Mrs. Eddy's words on page 307 of Miscellaneous Writings have always been of special value to me: "God gives you His spiritual ideas, and in turn, they give you daily supplies. Never ask for to-morrow: it is enough that divine Love is an ever-present help; and if you wait, never doubting, you will have all you need every moment."

Through my own prayers, and sometimes with the assistance of a Christian Science practitioner, there have been healings of physical discords. These victories have been cause for deep gratitude to God. On one occasion, the symptoms of flu were quickly dispelled. Another time, a sore throat and high temperature were quickly healed.
