Growing up in the 90s
My best friend
It's nice to have a best friend. Your best friend shares happy times with you and makes you feel better when you're down. Wouldn't it be great if this friend were always with you? In school I had different "best friends" at different times. But I learned that the love I felt when I was with these friends is always with me because God is the source of all real love. God is Love, and I found that I could always count on Love. I started thinking of God as my best friend.
This is how it happened: I was just beginning high school, and I was miserable. It was tough to make friends. Not only was I a little shy, but in my previous school, I had been picked on by other kids, and I was afraid that would happen again. Joining activities didn't help. I felt as if I didn't belong, and that I would always be on the outside.
Christian Science Sunday School is where I learned that God is Love. In Sunday School I also learned that you can solve problems through prayer and through what you learn about God in the Bible and in the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. I had also read in the Sentinel about how others were solving problems and being healed, and I wanted to use what I was learning about God to heal this situation.
