I've Truly Been Blessed

I've been talking a lot about Christianity and Christian Science here in my journal. I've talked a lot about love for God and love for our fellow man. And I keep telling you that my physical condition is improving.

What I haven't done is express my gratitude here in my journal.

My heart overflows with gratitude. God has brought me so very far from where I was in that hospital. This has been more than a healing, it has truly been a resurrection. How can I ever find words to express gratitude for such a gift?

But that's not the only gift I've been privileged to receive. I have such wonderful friends, who come to visit me frequently. These friends I'm speaking of are not Christian Scientists. At first, after I returned from the hospital, I think they came expecting the visit to be the last one that they would have with me. But I don't think anyone believes that anymore. Each and every one of these wonderful friends is a gift from God.

As I've told you before, a very dear lady from my church came as soon as I asked that anyone from church come visit me. She has been a huge blessing in my life. She comes to see me several times a week. She drives me to see my Christian Science practitioner. She's rallied other Christian Scientists, so that barely a day goes by when I'm not visited by a Christian Scientist. With these Christian Scientists I can talk about Christian Science in a way that I can't talk to my other friends about it, or write about here... the language would be confusing to people unfamiliar with Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Each of these wonderful visitors is yet another blessing in my life.

And all of you reading this, you are blessing me also. Your act of reading my journal fulfills its purpose. Thank you so much!

Father-Mother God, thank you for all of these blessings.


  1. It is a two-way street, Randall! I speak for myself, but greatly suspect many others out here in the cyber-world can agree that knowing you, even in such a limited way, has been a blessing for us as well.

    So thanks back'atcha! :-D

  2. I have to agree with Beth on that Randall I'm sure your friends are equally blessed by your friendship. I appreciate you sharing what you do with us. Truth is truth how ever you package it. ;)
