  1. The way to work hard is to reflect effortlessley the energy of Soul, the power of Truth, the vitality of Life, the passion of Love, the direction of Mind, the inspiration of Spirit and the embrace of Principal. This is serving God, our natural state and joy. Listen and respond and God will perform that which is appointed for you as His reflection. God rests in action and so do we.

  2. A couple of favourite statements from Mrs Eddy:
    “In God’s creation ideas became productive, obedient to Mind. There was no rain and “not a man to till the ground.” Mind, instead of matter, being the producer, Life was self-sustained. Birth, decay, and death arise from the material sense of things, not from the spiritual, for in the latter Life consisteth not of the things which a man eateth. Matter cannot change the eternal fact that man exists because God exists. Nothing is new to the infinite Mind.”
    “As an active portion of one stupendous whole, goodness identifies man with universal good. Thus may each member of this church rise above the oft-repeated inquiry, What am I? to the
    scientific response: I am able to impart truth, health, and happiness, and this is my rock of salvation and my reason for existing.” My 165:16

  3. Super “comment continuers” Ken and Fay !! I love the exhortation from Romans for hard work with enthusiasm- divine activity. Blessings all !

  4. Soon those little bees will be in full production once again in the spring.
    I started three hives last spring. They are tireless dedicated little productive workers. They organize, and form a community called a swarm. Dwindling in numbers due to the weather changes and insecticides, all are encouraged to provide habitat. A simple hollowed out log will do!
    They’ll find it and fill it with good things! All the while caring for the fields and orchards sustaining crops.
    They’re a living prayer of care and supply. Thank you for sharing today!
    Taking care of Beezness! Lovingkindness….

    Mrs. Eddy says: “.. work work work, watch and pray ..”

  7. How wonderful, all! Reminds me of my mother who became a bee keeper when she retired from being the first woman realtor in the State of Maine. She so loved her bees and loved healing teenagers acne with her precious fresh honey, Wherever she met teenagers she felt she could help – at church, at the supermarket, on the street – she would give them her address and say, “Ask your mother to bring you to my house and your skin will be healed in one week.” And it was, Perhaps my love of healing came from her enthusiasm!!! Oh, fortunate are you who learned Christian Science from your loving mothers.
