Rejoicing in Health and Strength

In December of last year I was a wretched being, suffering from rheumatism, with gout in my feet and ankles which swelled to an enormous size, so much so, that I could get no ordinary boots or shoes on. I had been ill for months, suffering great pain. I consulated several of the best doctors, who stated that I was suffering from acute neuritis, and ordered me all sorts of cures and medicines to no good end. I got no relief.

My guardian angel brought me in contact with a lady whom I knew to be a Christian Science healer. I asked her to treat me, which she kindly consented to do. I read the book and tried to realize the eternal truth, that God is Love, and with Him can be no sickness, sin, or death. In less than three weeks I was a changed being. I am well and rejoice in my strength and health. From a really sick woman I am restored, and know that Life is Good and that I live in God's presence; and I only hope I may of myself, through God, be enabled to help and heal those in sickness and sorrow.

My child, seven years old, has been completely healed of asthma and bronchitis since I came into Science.
