In the Preface to Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy we read (p. vii): "To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings." I have found that this is true, and that the more I lean on the infinite, the more support I get.

This support was something I very much needed when my husband, who was not a Christian Scientist, was operated on for a tumor on his spine. After the operation I spoke to the neurosurgeon, who indicated that my husband would likely suffer the same symptoms in six months' time. He added that a second operation would then be necessary and would involve the removal of part of my husband's spine.

After hearing this I turned to "the sustaining infinite" and did a great deal of praying and studying of all Mrs. Eddy's writings. I also read the Christian Science periodicals. This prayer and study was inspiring, and it brought me much comfort.
