No more sorrow

ON NOVEMBER 5, 1903, Mary Baker Eddy wrote to Caroline Frame, one of her students: "You are not alone. Love is with you watching tenderly over you by day and night; and this Love will not leave you but will sustain you and remember all thy tears and answer thy prayers" (The Mary Baker Eddy Collection, L12888).

This beautiful promise became a lifeline to me when, early this year, my beloved husband, Don, passed away suddenly. The outpouring of love from family and friends was a welcome comfort.

A wonderful Christian Science practitioner and teacher once said something I've always remembered: "Man's eternal purpose is to express God." And from Romans, St. Paul declared, "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord" (8:38). So, after my husband's passing, I felt assured that nothing could ever stop, interrupt, or prohibit either Don or me from our individual and divine purpose of expressing God.
