Springing into life

What is life to you? Is it only another month, another week, another day, another hour of just existing? Is it merely a series of events according to the dates on a calendar? Do we greet each day with the same perplexing problems that we had (but did not solve) yesterday? Do we look forward to the day, hoping, just hoping, it will be better than yesterday?

At one time in my life these troubling questions, which seemed impossible to resolve, almost made me despair. But a deep desire to find the meaning of life finally brought an answer in a most unexpected way. A friend, a Christian Scientist whom I greatly admired as a very fine representative of her religion, knew of my troubles and shared with me a book entitled Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. She also suggested my visiting a Christian Science Reading Room, a place for prayer and study of the Bible and writings of Mrs. Eddy that is maintained by every branch Church of Christ, Scientist, and by every Christian Science Society and is free to everyone.
