The health you always include

While I was in college, I worked in a greenhouse. When brown, dry bulbs arrived in early spring, they didn’t look like much. But when given light, water, and warmth, they would eventually bloom into beautiful daffodils, crocuses, tulips, and fragrant hyacinths. 

Whatever seems dormant, or even nonexistent, in our lives now—happiness, opportunity, or health—can come to full bloom through the power of God’s love. It is the Christ, the true idea of God, that brings to light this love and our actual, spiritual nature and heritage as God’s child.

Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of this magazine, was walking down a street in Lynn, Massachusetts, one day and saw a severely crippled man. She went to him and, leaning close, said, “God loves you.” According to a woman who observed this scene, Eddy continued on her way, and the man got up and walked away, healed (see Clifford Smith, Historical Sketches, p. 78).
