FROM DESPAIR TO JOY

Two years ago I was in despair and disheartened; for within three months two of our children had passed away and the remaining three were not well. For a long time doctors and a trained nurse had been coming daily. A large selection of medicine bottles made the house look like a hospital. Care, sleepless nights, and worry occupied my thought; heavy losses were added to the poor collections of outstanding accounts of a small retail business, and I was debating whether it was worth while trying to live. I seldom went to church. I thought it needless for a man to spend time for such unprofitable and lonesome lessons as we received in the Lutheran Church.

At this time a young lady told me about Christian Science, and asked me to go to a Friday night experience meeting, and perhaps it would do me good. I did so, and the very first evening was a glorious one to me. The words which I read on the wall of the Church, "God is Love," seemed so much to me. I could not remember that I had ever heard those words before, and I knew that was certainly not the God who sent discord and misery. I paid close attention to the testimonials, and soon realized that I had found what I needed.
