Letters from God

Some years ago when my mother passed on, I wrestled with a sense of irreparable loss. She had always been there when I needed her—someone to turn to for advice and encouragement, for understanding and uncondemning forgiveness when I willfully took a wrong turn. A bulwark for our little family, she was a fine example of courage and compassion lightened with humor and the appreciation of beauty.

Not only this, but her caring touch had constantly reached out to others, so that our home was truly what Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, describes in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures: "Home is the dearest spot on earth, and it should be the centre, though not the boundary, of the affections." Science and Health, p. 58. Mother set a high standard of devotion to God and man.
