Two years ago when my husband passed on, I was First Reader in my church. Even though I was now living by myself, I was mindful that each time I turned the latchkey to my door I was entering a sanctuary, where I would continue to commune with the Christ. This gave me peace and security.

If friends who were bringing me home would offer to go inside to see that everything was all right, I would thank them and confidently say that it wasn't necessary. My church congregation was very supportive. A family member drew my attention to Hymn 278 in the Christian Science Hymnal, which reminded me that home and heaven are within me, and that I was "cared for, watched over, beloved and protected."
