Lump on wrist gone
Just before Thanksgiving 2017 I noticed a lump the size and shape of a marble on top of my wrist. This was disturbing. My first thought was, What will others say? I thought through all the people I would be coming into contact with: students and colleagues at the school where I teach, friends, and my sons, with whom I would be sharing Thanksgiving. I thought about what I would say if they asked about my wrist. Since it was cool weather, I would be able to cover it with long sleeves most of the time, but not always. Then I got serious and started addressing the situation through prayer.
One passage from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy that I prayed with was, “Christian Science brings to the body the sunlight of Truth, which invigorates and purifies. Christian Science acts as an alterative, neutralizing error with Truth. It changes the secretions, expels humors, dissolves tumors, relaxes rigid muscles, restores carious bones to soundness. The effect of this Science is to stir the human mind to a change of base, on which it may yield to the harmony of the divine Mind” (p. 162). The “marble” on my wrist remained, but I knew that the situation would “yield to the harmony of the divine Mind.” Forty years of healings, of growing in understanding my true relation to God, divine Love, assured me that this would be healed as well.
