No more gestational diabetes and no aftereffects

About four years ago, while I was pregnant with our second child, I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. When I received the diagnosis from the doctor’s office over the phone, I felt sure it was a mistake. 

The doctor required a second, more in-depth, test, before and during which I prayed until I became very aware that I was the expressed image of God. In Mary Baker Eddy’s book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, the author says, “As a drop of water is one with the ocean, a ray of light one with the sun, even so God and man, Father and son, are one in being” (p. 361). 

Like that ray’s oneness with its source, I was one with God in nature and in essence—balanced, bright, and free of material measurements, positive or negative. Only God, divine Spirit, could tell me about my true being. I felt confident in that analogy likening me to a ray of light, one with my source—one with God, my true Father-Mother, who was also the true Father and Mother of the baby.
