"As the crude footprints of the past disappear from the dissolving paths of the present, we shall better understand the Science which governs these changes, and shall plant our feet on firmer ground." This statement in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy exemplifies an important change in my experience.
Though I had been taught in Christian Science not to look to the future for happiness, I had always supposed that when my husband retired and we moved to a sunny coastal area, we would find complete joy and fulfillment living there and spending our days walking along the beach. Certainly it would be a lovely thing to enjoy the natural beauty of the ocean and sky, the peaceful life of quiet days and no apparent stress.
However, after my husband's retirement and our subsequent move south, there was an emptiness to our existence. The worst part of this life style was that it was totally selfish. In prior years we had always enjoyed many useful activities. To suddenly become so self-absorbed was not at all fulfilling or joyful. I had even limited my participation in the branch church I had joined in order to spend as much time as possible at the beach!
