'Pure joy' replaces pain

A few years ago, my husband and I had accepted an invitation to housesit for friends living near London, while they traveled in America with another couple. We arrived at our friend’s house, and my husband was to drive everyone to the airport. Hugs and goodbyes were made, luggage and people were settled into place, and when the last car door was shut, I realized my fingers were caught in the door.

During the short time it took to communicate the situation to my husband and free my hand from the door, I heard this statement very clearly in my thought: “I am spiritual.” This reminded me of who I really am, and I said yes to the message.

I had grown up attending a Christian Science Sunday School and had memorized a statement that is said out loud at the end of each Sunday School session—“the scientific statement of being,” written by the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy (see Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 468). It states the truth of who we really are, and what we are not—that we are not material, but, actually, we are spiritual. That is the truth!
