AGING: GROWING IN UNDERSTANDING

An erroneous concept which mortals often seem to entertain is that there is a limited amount of good vision, perfect hearing, unrestricted mobility, clear thinking, even life itself! And that these will eventually be used up, leaving man a helpless victim of a material world. The depletion of these faculties is based squarely on the belief of time. Mortals blindly accept the notion that time is real, and belongs to God. 

I prefer to think of time as if someone woke up one morning and announced, “Let there be time...and clocks...and hurriedness...and stress.” What a liar! If God didn’t make it, it isn’t true. God’s creation is eternal. And eternity doesn’t mean endless time. It means the elimination of time. God never created time. 

So if time doesn’t exist, there can be no deterioration of faculties or abilities based on such a lie. “The measurement of life by solar years robs youth and gives ugliness to age. The radiant sun of virtue and truth coexists with being. Manhood is its eternal noon, undimmed by a declining sun.”   (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy p. 246:12)

Give of your heart's rich overflow!

I have a friend who constantly gives of her heart's rich overflow. And she readily acknowledges this giving as having its source in Love. She feels so blessed that she just has to share it with others. If someone greets her and asks how she is, her response will be a hearty, "I'm as wonderful as you are!" And if that person comments further, my friend tells him or her, "Well, the same Father who blesses me
 blesses you, so if I'm wonderful, YOU must be wonderful too!

What a joyful way to share God's love! It attracts people like bears to honey, and they come seeking the Truth. Try it! You'll be blessed right along with them!


Hymn 139 from The Christian Science Hymnal
SURREY by HENRY CAREY

I walk with Love along the way, And O, it is a holy day;
No more I suffer cruel fear, I feel God’s presence with me here;
The joy that none can take away Is mine; I walk with Love today.

Who walks with Love along the way, Shall talk with Love and Love obey;
God’s healing truth is free to all, Our Father answers every call;
’Tis He dispels the clouds of gray That all may walk with Love today.

Come, walk with Love along the way, Let childlike trust be yours today;
Uplift your thought, with courage go, Give of your heart’s rich overflow,
And peace shall crown your joy-filled day. Come, walk with Love along the way.
