I'm grateful for Janet Clements's article, "Hope and the bamboo seed" in the April 28 Sentinel ["A reason to hope"]. My present branch Church of Christ, Scientist, and home were providing me with the sense of peace I'd been yearning for over a period of time. Yet there was a lot of clutter in my home with minimal progress to get rid of it.

Janet wrote in her article: "There was truly cause for rejoicing as I welcomed my students on the first day [of a college class I was teaching]. If they'd only known all the hope I'd been cherishing throughout that summer and that they represented its beautiful fruition!" After I read Janet's article, I got rid of the clutter and found my home expressing more beauty and order. Also, a good friend from church put up my new wall hangings, posters, and pictures. I now have cause for rejoicing as I invite my friends of all ages, including my Sunday School students and their families, to my home.

A great reward
