“I can’t begin to tell you how many times I was on my knees asking, ‘Father, what is your plan for your beloved child?’ ” —says Diane Marrapodi about the recent years she spent taking care of her parents. A trained Christian Science nurse before becoming a Christian Science practitioner and teacher, Diane offers a special perspective on caring for people who might find themselves at the threshold of passing on from human experience. Offering insights that plumb metaphysical concepts about “Life and death,” she may well take you to thought-places you’ve never gone before.
Diane, you have a great deal of experience in this area of people needing to care for parents and relatives.
Well, the one thing I would tell you, Jeff, is something that the Bible says, “Let all things be done decently and in order.” First Corinthians 14:40. That guideline eliminates the clock and calendar, freeing you up to just look for the orderliness of Mind’s unfoldment. Because that clock and calendar can both be a bear.
