Early one afternoon on a sultry day in Northern Canada, I headed down to the lake to fertilize the lilies I had planted the previous summer. The lake was unusually calm, very still for the middle of the day. The rain would inevitably come and give the lilies a drink. After fertilizing and weeding, I looked up and was totally transfixed by the blackest-blue sky I had ever seen.
Earlier that morning I had pondered the word, preserved in the Christian Science Bible Lesson, titled “God the Preserver of Man.” To know that I am preserved by God, I’ve learned to trust that God is with me each day. God is not a far-off, sometimes present God, but God is always expressing tangible love, positive direction, and tender care.
