Hold on tight to the hand of the one you love for one day that hand will no longer be there to hold. I held my Partners hand for almost 30 years and was holding it the night he lost his battle with cancer.

Individuality—a precious gift that can’t be lost

From the January 3, 2000 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

It Was The End of summer and time to remove from our garden the spent summer flowers. We’d had a pretty display of different-colored everlasting daisies—pinks, whites, yellows, and so on. It was easy pulling them out as I moved along the bed. But then I came to a bush that made me pause. Here were pink and white blooms on the same bush. Impossible! I thought.booth-bay-2

My answer came as I pulled the bush. Though the branches intertwined to look like one bush, there were two distinct root systems growing in the same hole—one root producing white blooms, the other pink. Neither plant had interfered with the other’s growth and beauty. I smiled, because this message of noninterference was just what I needed. It reminded me of this statement: “The divine Mind maintains all identities, from a blade of grass to a star, as distinct and eternal” (Science and Health, p. 70).

Our God is Love, unchanging Love,
And can we ask for more?
Our prayer for Love’s increase is vain;
‘Twas infinite before.

No matter what your circumstances may be, no matter how “cramped” you may feel in your particular part of the garden, this peace and harmony are possible for you, also.

Keep being you
