One day around lunchtime my young daughter, Gracie, was very tired and began to feel warm. My husband and I have seen so many healings in our family through prayer, and I immediately began to pray for her.
Soon after I retired several years ago, I began experiencing pain in my left hip. When standing, I would sometimes have to grab on to something stable for support.
I woke up one day feeling some symptoms of a cold or the flu. By late morning I felt very ill and was in need of relief.
Some years ago I was experiencing a series of vicious dreams in the early morning just before waking up. It got so bad that even after waking, I carried the dark sense of these dreams into my morning with me.
For the first ten years of my marriage I was able to become pregnant only twice. In both cases I miscarried and experienced pain, but found healing and relief after seeking and receiving Christian Science treatment.
That Friday in 2015 began as a typical morning for me. As I commonly do each day, I read the week’s Bible Lesson from the Christian Science Quarterly.
In the spring of 2016, I participated in a strenuous activity I enjoy—racquetball. As I left the gym that day, I wasn’t moving well on one of my legs.
In our backyard sat a section of old, previously used decking, resting upside down on concrete blocks. One evening, I went out to watch our new kitten run and play among the backyard plants.
My growing-up years were a very sad experience. My mother, who was the last of my father’s five wives, had four children.
Kate Sessions Park in San Diego is a beautiful and motivational spot where I enjoy going to write. I love the view from the top of a hill that overlooks Mission Bay, and on a clear day one can see Mexico in the distance.
