Many people think in terms of advancing years as lacking in opportunity and supply. But I'm reminded of two lines from the poem "Ulysses" by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, where he writes: "Some work of noble note, may yet be done ..../ 'Tis not too late to seek a newer world." Even if we are living in only one room or sharing a retirement home with others, there is much we can do to help our fellowman.
When Mrs. Eddy discovered Christian Science, she found a new world. She began this work at middle age, and in her later years she was still actively shaping the movement, among other things calling for the establishment of The Christian Science Monitor. Dedicating her efforts to sharing what she had seen of the new world of divine Science, she healed and blessed many in her lifetime.
In the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health, she writes: "Man, governed by immortal Mind, is always beautiful and grand. Each succeeding year unfolds wisdom, beauty, and holiness." Science and Health, p. 246.
