Through prayer wallet found on road

My husband and I own a salvage yard where we sell used car parts. One day last week a man came in and bought an alternator. He left the shop and about twenty minutes later he came back in  to see if he had left his wallet inside. Everyone in the office checked and the wallet was not to be found. He went down to the corner store where he had just been and the wallet was not there either. So now he  was outside walking the driveway to see if he had dropped it, but still no wallet. He started  checking all through his truck, taking things out, looking under seats etc. One of our employees went to help  and still no success. By now I decided to go out. The man was very upset. All his id's and money were in there and he did not want to think someone had taken it. So I stood out in the parking lot. The sky was clear, the sun so warm and welcoming, and I lifted my head and thanked our Father, divine
Mind for always providing our every need, and that even if we had not found the wallet nothing was impossible to God. I also prayed and knew that man is honest  and that it was right for this man to have his wallet.  I knew God would give us an answer. After a minute,  I went back to the man and asked if he had opened the hood. He said he didn't think so but then remembered he had, to check our part with his and make sure it matched. I then asked if he could have set his wallet down under the hood. We checked but it wasn't there. So I then said to him  that if he drove back from where he just came it might have fallen out. He stayed awhile longer putting things back in his truck and then left. I went back in to my desk area  and in a little while he came back in  with a big grin and pulled out the wallet. He had driven down the road and noticed a dark article just off the side of the road and decided to stop....and there it was!!!! Thank you Father!

Cell phone found in gym

Shortly after our February message on divine Love, I had a beautiful tangible few hours in New York City knowing for a fact that everyone I saw was the loved of Love.  I knew that if anything was true that this was true.  I knew that this truth was a healing truth and it really radiated and was glowing to me.  I was so happy to know this as a tangible reality!  The next day I woke up still so happy and went to the gym.  When I got home I walked around recalling the tangibility of divine Love and a thought came that if God's man is loved, then God's man does not need to take anything from anyone but is provided with exactly what he/ she needs.  and as I went off to next part of day, I realized I didn't have my phone!  I hopped in car with my sister and each of us praying silently.  The phone and my bottle of water weren't even moved.  and so while I felt so blessed already by knowing how loved man is, the day before, I felt extra extra blessed in that I was guarded in thought even before I realized I may have left the phone at the gym.  and I also was on time for my next appointment that day!  

After our church lesson on Mind, I had the opportunity to practice knowing the tangibility of the one Mind.  This was once again while in New York City.  and I felt that it was in reality tangible and was the reality of all thought and intelligence around me.

Here's the message on divine Love she is referring to...

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.  Deut 6:5
God is Love. God is the source of love.  You are always loved. You don't need to earn love or be worthy of God's love.  God is simply Love and loves like the sun simply shines and warms all who stand in the sunshine. Love isn't limited to a person or restricted to the love which we express to one another.  If we can expand our understanding of Love to realize that we are within Love, we can continuously feel that love and be loved.  We can understand how to love God with all our heart, soul and might.  God loves, and we reflect God's love toward God and God's ideas. We are reflecting the light of love as a mirror reflects light.  Mirror God's love and you will begin to glimpse the pulsating rhythm of love reflecting Love until all is Love.

Locked out in rural Alaska

Locked Out Without Worry by Nancy Tankersley   October 2015

“Let neither fear nor doubt overshadow your clear sense and calm trust, that the recognition of life
harmonious — as Life eternally is — can destroy any painful sense of, or belief in, that which Life is not.” This advice from Mary Baker Eddy’s book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (495:14–20) rang true during a situation I experienced last summer. My adult daughter Molly and I had been on a road trip to a remote part of Alaska. On our way back home to Anchorage one afternoon, we stopped to visit a friend and clip some willow branches on the outskirts of his
rural village for a fencing project. It appeared that he was away from home overnight, so I went ahead to collect the willows and then planned to drive the remaining four hours home. I asked my daughter to drive my car along the gravel road behind me and stop once in a while to pick up the willows. After about 10 minutes, she got out of the car to speak to me. And then said “Oh no Mom, I just locked the keys in the car!” So there we were, on an isolated road with infrequent traffic, with our cell phones, wallets, keys, clothes and other belongings locked inside the car. She was wearing shorts, and it was beginning to rain. The only neighbor I knew nearby had already left for his winter home in Arizona. I was aware of only a few other houses somewhere nearby. Humanly, it was a difficult, uncomfortable situation, fifteen miles from the nearest town that had commercial services.

But instead of experiencing anger, worry, fear, or anxiety, I just felt a sense of calm and wonder. Something like “I wonder how God is going to help us” went through my mind calmly.  We stood there a minute, and then unexpectedly, a neighborhood woman drove up, who was running an errand for her husband. I explained our situation, and asked if there was a locksmith in the town 15 miles away. She responded no, but that she would go get Pete, a neighbor, to help.

Well, Pete was a commercial fisherman, with a very complete tool shop. Within 35 minutes, he had the car door unlocked and undamaged. We were on our way with hardly a delay. “Saint Pete” I called him afterwards.  And I realized she was an “angel,” lovingly helping her husband exactly at the time that we also needed help.

I’m very grateful for my understanding of Christian Science and divine Love for the “clear sense and calm trust” in God’s law of harmony that can meet our everyday needs.

Testimony March 24, 2014 Christian Science Sentinel

 March 12, 2012 you gave a lecture "Texting God: Effective Short Prayers" at Tenth Church in Portland, Oregon.  I just wanted you to know that the testimony in the 3-24-14 Sentinel (p. 16-17) was fruitage from that lecture.  I was on the lecture committee and I was amazed when my son spontaneously drew on the ideas you had shared with him over a year prior!  He just graduated from Discovery Bound's NLC program and they required he write up a hearing and this is what came to his mind.  - E.G.L.  from Portland

How to heal a boring class

This is given with permission...In Sunday School I help teach the middle class students. This year we have asked them to bring questions we might help them answer  and how to use Christian Science to  solve problems. One young lady wanted to know what to do about a boring teacher? We started with Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy 476-477 "Jesus beheld in Science the perfect " teacher where a boring teacher appears to mortals, and how a correct view heals. I also told her to start with one good thing about the teacher and then build on it. About a month later the young lady's mother said "Don't you want tell her what happened?"   She then pulled out a list of the qualities she saw in the teacher. #1 If someone needs something she will help #2 She calls on her students equally #3 She has different activities based on different peoples ways of learning #4 If people can't see the board she will let them move or sit on the floor #5 she makes sure we are ready for our tests #6 she is understanding #7 she tries to make class fun.     The kids decided this really was a good teacher and they were enjoying her class. So it was a big disappointment when she had to leave the school for personal reasons. But before she did ,  the young lady gave her a card and added the wonderful qualities she saw in her , and of course the teacher cried for the thoughtfulness of the student.  And she said to me  "Christian Science really works!"        Nancy in Tallahassee

Healing of allergies

Over the past several weeks I have had a wonderful awakening from a LONG held belief I was allergic to Chrysanthemums. Fifty seven years ago my fiancé and I attended a formal banquet in November. I was given a beautiful Mum corsage which I wore on my shoulder and the tables were decorated with lovely large golden chrysanthemum plants. About half way through the dinner I had a severe asthma attack. At the time I was a student in nurses training and knew very little about Christian Science.
My fiancé rushed me to a nearby hospital emergency room and I was given several injections and oxygen to help me breath. The emergency room staff told me it was most likely the chrysanthemums that had caused such an awful reaction.
I spent the next forty five years in the nursing profession and avoided chrysanthemums at all cost. I had the belief of several other severe allergies and carried emergency medications with me every where and continued to avoid anything I thought would trigger an attack.
I enjoyed relatively good health and treated minor complaints with “over the counter” medications. I went to doctors for routine check ups and to renew the prescriptions for the emergency medications I thought were so necessary.
Fast forward to 2002 and I rediscovered Christian Science. I started studying CS in earnest and attended Church services regularly. I had a number of dramatic healings of long standing chronic ailments which included several of the allergies I thought I had. I really hadn’t even thought about chrysanthemums though.
A few weeks ago some neighborhood youth were selling potted plants to raise money for a school trip. My husband ordered a chrysanthemum. When it was delivered I gingerly carried it out to our deck and admired it through the window. Several days later a house guest presented us with a lovely large chrysanthemum plant as a hostess gift. It was late in the evening and I wanted to show my appreciation for the gift so I kept the plant in the house on our breakfast table until our guest departed. The next morning I began experiencing the symptoms of the onset of an asthma attack. I had thrown out all emergency medications years earlier. I felt fearful and was thinking I should not have kept the plant in the house right under my nose. Then the BFO (Blinding Flash of the Obvious), I hadn’t done anything foolish and I realized God never caused me to be allergic to anything and I DID NOT need to be afraid of chrysanthemums.
The really fun part of this experience happened last week when I joined friends for a great bus trip and special luncheon. At the luncheon every table was decorated with a beautiful golden chrysanthemum plant. After the luncheon the plants were given away as door prizes and about five of the plants returned to Tulsa with us on the bus. I am so grateful I had been freed of the idea that I was allergic to these lovely plants and could enjoy a wonderful outing with friends. “Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”

Harmony restored with grandchildren

Earlier this month, I was having difficulty getting my two young grandchildren settled down for their afternoon nap.  I became very still, listened for God’s presence, relaxed, and started singing the childhood song, Jesus Loves Me.  Kennedy (8 months) started relaxing in my arms while Madison (2 years old) listened intently and become very quiet on the couch.  Within a few minutes, Kennedy was asleep in her bed, while Madison was resting on my lap.  Harmony was restored and we all woke up refreshed two hours later.

Over the years, I have felt closest to God when I take the time to be very still, listen closely to God, and then “sing the right tune”.  More recently, I started studying Christian Science, and came across Mary Baker Eddy’s definition for Heaven as “Harmony; the reign of Spirit; government by divine Principle; spirituality; bliss; the atmosphere of Soul” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 587).

As my spiritual understanding of God grows, I am learning that we can experience Heaven (harmony) in the here and now. As the words in the song I Will Come Before the Lord expresses (Album Inhabiting Eternity sung by Kathy Glover and Char Beck): Day and night, You are my song And we sweetly sing together To worship and praise Thee Singing within Thy house forever. Day and night, You are my song.
