Danielle,

Thank you for both of these gems.

I was moved profoundly by the first quote as a student of Christian Science. I also had a grandmother who was a Journal listed CS practitioner and the greatest influence in my life for love and goodness. I think of her all the time. She was the real deal.

Mrs. Eddy’s quote arrived from you right on time and was demonstrated recently by the people who stopped the attack on the French train. Three of whom were Americans and friends traveling together. Perhaps they were divine Love in action.

Anthony Sadler said Sunday that when he saw his friends charge forward his instinct was: “Do something.”
“Hiding, or sitting back, is not going to accomplish anything,” he said. “And the gunman would’ve been successful if my friend Spencer had not gotten up. So I just want that lesson to be learned going forward, in times of, like, terror like that, please do something. Don’t just stand by and watch.”

Your second quote moved me with the simple lesson of not giving up. I went through unthinkable hardship and adversity and felt like giving up over these past years. But the writings of Mary Baker Eddy gave me the courage not to even when I wanted to give up. It reminds me of the legend of the two wolves fighting (Hope v Despair). Which one wins? The one that you feed.

Keep your light shining!

Truth, Wisdom, Love and Sincerity, to You and ALL Mankind.
