In Psalm 71, we read (verse 3), "Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress." As a student of Christian Science, I have been sustained by this thought so many times.

After a fulfilling and long married life, I was widowed. At that time my only son was in Japan, in the military.

But this emptiness was soon filled with an awareness of the motherhood and fatherhood of God.
