No widowhood in God

After the last of my family and then my husband of many years passed on, I felt devastated. Even two of my closest women friends had died. Fear, grief, and depression bombarded my days. Was I now to face life without companionship and loved ones? This question had to have answers. The answers couldn't be just words. They had to be deep, meaningful, and completely healing.

Being a student of Christian Science, I knew I had to dig deeper into this Science to find my peace of mind and an incentive to go on. There had to be a purpose in life, a reason to live. One day an answer came. It was in the form of questions. Wasn't God enough to live for? Weren't Christian Science and the desire to help mankind enough incentive?
