Freed from grief

Two years ago my dear wife of 23 years suddenly passed away. I was devastated. I felt that my life was over, that there was no reason to live. The house seemed so empty without her. 

I spent the next several months praying to overcome a deep sense of loss, grief, and loneliness. When I sought prayerful help from a Christian Science practitioner, he asked me to study two passages from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. One is on page 57: “The wintry blasts of earth may uproot the flowers of affection, and scatter them to the winds; but this severance of fleshly ties serves to unite thought more closely to God, for Love supports the struggling heart until it ceases to sigh over the world and begins to unfold its wings for heaven.” 

The other is on page 266: “Would existence without personal friends be to you a blank? Then the time will come when you will be solitary, left without sympathy; but this seeming vacuum is already filled with divine Love. When this hour of development comes, even if you cling to a sense of personal joys, spiritual Love will force you to accept what best promotes your growth.”
