My thoughts of love for all those in Boston is to reach out to God for comfort, and Webster defines "comfort" as a "strengthening aid." It is my understanding that strength comes from God.  In Ephesians 6 I find that comfort:  "Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.  Stand therefore having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench al the fiery darts of the wicked."  

In the 23rd. Psalm and on page 578 in Science and Health, by Mary Baker Eddy, we find comfort where she defines God as Love and speaks of "comfort thus: "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for (LOVE) is with me; (LOVE'S) rod and (LOVE'S ) staff they comfort me."

It is a known fact that God, Love, comforts, guards and guides each of us. God guards our thought from hatred, anger, resentment, that is all negative thoughts, and guides us to forgiveness.  Personally, I have found that "forgiveness" is vital to healing.  Loving and forgiving go hand in hand, after all, Jesus said on the cross, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do."  The Lords Prayer is a powerful tool to overcome any and all problems and a broader Scientific, Spiritual understanding of that Prayer can be found on page 16-17 in the Book, Science and Health and can be found at ChristianScience.com.

All glory be to God most high,
And on the earth be peace,
The angels sang, in days of yore, 
The song that ne'er shall cease,
Till all the world knows peace.

God's angels ever come and go,
All winged with light and love;
They bring us blessings from on high,
They lift our thoughts above, 
They whisper God is Love.

O longing hearts that wait on God
Through all the world so wide;
He knows the angels that you need 
And sends them to your side
To comfort, guard and guide.

O wake and hear the angel-song
That bids all discord cease,
From pain and sorrow, doubt and fear, 
It brings us sweet release; 
And so our hearts find peace.       Poem by Violet Hay
