My heart is overflowing with gratitude for the wonderful concept of home and heaven that my study of Christian Science has brought me. Not long ago I decided to leave the Midwest and relocate to New England, where I had been brought up. I trusted God to carry me through this transition, as I knew that trusting Him and setting aside human outlining would ensure that every detail of the move would be harmonious.
Hymns from the Christian Science Hymnal were my constant companions. A favorite as I prepared for the move was one that begins (No. 278):
Pilgrim on earth, home and
heaven are within thee,
Heir of the ages and child of
Cared for, watched over, beloved
Walk thou with courage each
step of the way.
