NOT HALF BUT WHOLE
When my husband passed away suddenly and unexpectedly a few years ago, I realized I had a decision to make. I could either yearn for a comfortable daily routine that was no longer possible, or I could embrace the next chapter of my life and expect to move forward.
Through my study of Christian Science, I had learned that Life is unending, eternal. And I felt certain that my dear husband was safe, cared for, and well prepared for a progressive sense of existence. In the immediate aftermath of his passing, I came to see that I could expect progress for myself as well. I made this decision very consciously, and whenever I was tempted to mentally give in to loss and sadness, I renewed my commitment to spiritual progress. Praying in this way was a powerful antidote for grief and the commonly-held thought that life would not be worth living without one's spouse.
