Beauty all around, on the way to healing

A setting sun was just the beginning.

One evening as I drove out of our driveway, I was met with a breathtaking view of a brilliant sunset. Fluffy clouds in various shapes and sizes made long streaks across the horizon, with the sun adding glorious hues of yellow, red, and orange. It was as if an artist had painted the colors across the sky to give the world a gorgeous view at the end of the day.

This brief view was a source of inspiration for me. It lifted my thought out of the mundane and out of dull materialism. It pointed me to the Christ, the message of Truth. It opened my thought to a more spiritual view of the world. And this led to the healing of a painful condition.

I had played a strenuous game of tennis that day. Usually when I play tennis I don't have any aftereffects. However, after dinner that day, I found I could barely move. I refused to give in to this condition and instead proceeded with my plans for the evening, which included going out. On the way, the inspiration of the beautiful sunset helped restore my spiritual perspective. I remembered that I am God's child, His image and likeness, untouched by overexertion or fatigue. The next morning I realized that I had been completely healed.
