From the September 2006 issue of The Christian Science Journal

My heart is full this morning with the depth of spirituality brought out in the interview with Horton Foote by Jeffrey Hildner [July, p. 34]. I awoke in the night and came across this article, again to ponder its wisdom. I found myself praying, so naturally, for a very long time, not wanting, just thinking and listening. Soon I realized my thoughts about my dear departed husband had not included a smidgen of sadness, regret, or longing. Though I have had many inspirations in that regard, this brought a newfound freedom. Soon—after only a few hours of sleep—I left for my exhausting new job, feeling rested and refreshed throughout the day, with no need for catch-up rest later.

"Grace pace"—what a hoot, and how we need it! We're so hesitant to show the down times, and yet even through those, the dominion is already self-evident, eternal, inevitable. And the photo, how subtly it shows the quality of the man, the value of his work.
