The year 1991 was not the best one for me, involving a broken engagement and then redundancy [unemployment]. Was I feeling rejected! However, a Christian Science practitioner and I discussed joy and the fact that all this upheaval was a great opportunity to draw closer to God, which certainly proved to be true.

A friend wrote to me, sharing a definition of redundancy that I found really helpful. He had been in the same situation a few years before; instead of the usual meaning of the word— "becoming superfluous"—he took the definition "overflowing on into something else."

We'd love to hear from you!
