Let your joy be full; the time has never been before when you were so worthy to bear His cross and prove your loyalty to Him as now. Take His cup, darling, drink and give thanks.  ‘Tribulation worketh patience, and patience experience, and experience hope, for the love of God is shed abroad in your hearts.’  Your husband is not dead; your thought of him is not necessarily sad; he lives and is wiser now than he ever could have been without this lesson.  Do not sigh to see him; the evidence of the senses never could, never can, bless him, or you.  Be happy, darling, in knowing that he is cared for by infinite Love that is doing more for you both in this seeming affliction than Love, altho boundless, could in any other way.  This Love is caring for you in the divine order of progress, and will hide you under His feathers, and under His wing shalt thou trust, rest and rejoice.                                                      Ever tenderly and truly,

Mary Baker Eddy (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.275-276)

 Can the dull pen tell the heart’s errand?  Can words depict feeling and speak the language of love?  If they can then will this tiny shee[t] comfort you, lift you to a realization of a great infinite gain?  Never is God so good, so loving, so near to His beloved child, as when she needs Him most.  Now you are sharing His benediction, His hand is taking thine, and from the night leading thee swiftly into light.  ‘Sweet are the uses of adversity.’  The gospel of Christ was a Gospel of  Glory that could not have been given except through suffering. Mary Baker Eddy, (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.275)

There is one general answer I can give for every case.
Do not concern yourself so much to get the argument, as to rise to a clear sense of the Science of Being, namely, that what you behold is an illusion of your own senses as well as the senses of your patient.  And then work bravely, persistently and Christ-like to dispel this illusion of sin, sickness and death to your self. 
Mary Baker Eddy

May each day unfold to you the manifold treasures of Christian Science, and may you become the rich partakers thereof.  Remember that the power to heal is gained through peace, wisdom, Love, dominion over self, and good-will toward men.  You possess these graces of Spirit, or Christ-power, only by loving God – good –  supremely.  After this cometh the recognition of but one Mind, which enables you to know that there is no power or presence that can resist good, or prevent your prayers being effectual.  While you remain in this attitude of mind, you are obedient to the Principle of your being, and naught can hinder your healing the sick and the sinner.  Mary Baker Eddy    (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea, p.275)

Once Mrs. Eddy said to Lady Victoria Murray in an interview, “The argument used in healing is simply tuning-up.  If your violin is in tune, it is unnecessary to tune it up.  Keep your violin in tune.  There is no disease.  If I dream there is a table in place of that chair, that is only a belief. The patient believes it, he does not feel it.  God is All and God is infinite, precludes all else.  Keep your violin in tune.” Mary Baker Eddy

Of two evils, one must always choose the least; and of two evils the wife alone must make the choice, and above all choose the least evil.  A loss of affection is a great loss.  A wife can lead the element of love up higher, from the basement to the upper chamber.   Mary Baker Eddy

     But next day she referred to this again, and said, ‘My dear students, God has told me this much for you: At the end of this century, Christian Science will be the only universally acknowledged religion in the world, because other religions have no demonstrating basis. But much work remains undone, much self-denial waits for us all before this end can be fulfilled. The main thing is for us to handle M.A.M. that would make us fold our hands till this manifests itself. But Truth demands work, work, work! Never forget that!’    Mary Baker Eddy

     One morning Mrs. Eddy was examining us in her study, putting various questions to us. Finally she said, ‘Dear ones, you have answered well. Now that you have been so patient with Mother, what can she do for you?’ We were all surprised at the question, but Mr. Strang, I believe it was, spoke up finally, ‘Mother, will you prophesy for us?’ Her face clouded for just an instant, and then she said, ‘To perform the demonstration of prophecy always includes a temptation of animal magnetism. Now I have always found this rule of help. When you are about to prophesy, always handle animal magnetism first, and then you will find the times are in His hands, and all need for prophecy will be gone. Why? Because faith in God will have taken its place.’   Mary Baker Eddy
