Saved from the Operating Table

I was rescued on the eve of going on the operating table, with little hope of coming off it alive. After eight years of intense suffering and invalidism, trying many modes of treatment and many physicians, I was healed by Christian Science, and am well and able to do heavy work without fear of any bad results. But this physical healing seems of small account in comparison with the mental and moral healing. Thank God, Christian Science has taught me there is more love than hate, more good than bad, more harmony than inharmony, and has given me hope, courage, and energy to meet and overcome all trials that have come to me in six years.

My mother has been healed of heart trouble of twenty years' standing, a brother has taken off glasses, and a sister who was given up by physicians, who said she could only live two months, is entirely healed.

What a comfort this Truth has been to me with my children! They are both stanch little Scientists, often meeting claims of sickness or accidents without even coming to me for help. Is it any wonder our hearts overflow with love and gratitude to Mary Baker Eddy, who through fiery trials stood firmly on the rock of Truth to teach us the Christ-Truth which makes life all sunshine?
