Graced with a home
Several years ago, during the first few years that I studied Christian Science, I was living in a tiny one-bedroom cottage with my small child and our cat. It had become increasingly obvious to me that we had outgrown this home.
While it had been a refuge for 11 years, it was an old cottage that was falling into disrepair, and my landlords were not in a position to afford renovations. While I was very grateful for the fact that my rent was relatively low in a very inflated rental market, I realized that it was time to look for other accommodations.
