Of Good Report

Look for Love’s lessons

From the July 2024 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The weather forecast for the day was hot, so I set out unusually early on my daily walk. I noticed the birds singing their cheery songs and thought of these words from one of Mary Baker Eddy’s hymns: 

Brood o’er us with Thy shelt’ring wing,
     Neath which our spirits blend
Like brother birds, that soar and sing,
     And on the same branch bend. 
   (Christian Science Hymnal, No. 30

I realized that the songs were always an innate part of the birds’ expression of God, divine Love. How helpful it is to know love and joy are intrinsic.
