One Sunday morning I heard the soloist at my branch church singing, "Lift up the latchkey, open the door. Come home to the Father and wander no more." Christ Jesus' parable of the prodigal son (see Luke 15:11–24) was in that week's Bible Lesson, and this passage from the solo was the message to the son. It is the message for all of us who are having "prodigal" experiences.

I had been having the challenge of a growth on my back. It had been there for a long time. Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy states (p. 261 ): "Look away from the body into Truth and Love, the Principle of all happiness, harmony, and immortality." I had been obedient to this idea as I had continued praying about this difficulty. When I toweled off after baths, however, I could tell the growth was getting larger and more painful.

We'd love to hear from you!
