The unlimited variation of God's creation

The jacaranda trees were beautiful in full bloom. Patches of deep lavender blue lined the streets everywhere. Someone remarked how wonderful it would be if the trees could bloom all year round. Then it was recalled that the budding period and the green mane of the branches at other times gave the whole cycle variation and interest.

Similarly, if things remained much the same with us all the time, our lives would not be patterning God's underlying, spiritual creation. As depicted in the first chapter of Genesis, the universal expression of divine Mind manifests unlimited variety.

Yet people often feel that their lot, changing or static, does not pattern the divine variation at all. They say that life seems to be passing them by. Christian Science shows how such circumstances can be happily rectified.
