Physical and Spiritual Help Received

One evening I took up "Miscellaneous Writings" by Mary Baker G. Eddy, and I opened to the letter "To Correspondents" on page 155. In it our Mother speaks of the students as "fulfilling their moral obligation to furnish some reading matter for our denominational organ." It came to me that I had been content to receive all the blessings of this great Truth and had never been willing to give my experience to others.

I wish to say that through this beautiful healing Truth, I have been able to lay aside my glasses which had been in constant use for about ten years, and have also been freed from a disease I was supposed to have inherited; but this physical healing is nothing compared to the holy, uplifting, spiritual help it has been to me. I had been trying for many years to lift myself out of the gloom caused by the death of my little daughter, and at last the Scriptures have been fulfilled—and "The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined."
