Light in a Moulding Room

Many a time I rise early to read something from the Sentinel or Journal before going to my work among men who do not believe in Christian Science, for I have felt the need of being fed with Truth and Love so that I can talk to the men in the spirit of love when they talk rough to me and use profane language, so that they could see by my way of talking that I loved God too much to take His name in vain, even when the same things happened to me as to them. I did not work a week before they saw the difference, for they soon told me they noticed I did not swear. I have gone to my work often-times refreshed by reading some one's experience, or some word from our Leader in the Journal or Sentinel, and yet I did not know then as I do now of the practical value of these things.

I have found, in the short experience I have had in following the teachings of Science, that things I have longed to be free from and could not get rid of with all my will power, I am free from to-day, and in work at which I failed I have succeeded because it taught me that I have dominion over my work and not my work over me.

I am a moulder by trade, and before I knew of Christian Science if I got burned I was laid off for six weeks or two months, now I am not laid off at all. Last week I got two of my fingers burned in the red-hot sand, and I never told a man in the shop about it. I still continued to work away in the heat, though error tried to make me think I could not. I just held on to Truth as I was taught, and as far as I understood, for it is only what I have proved in my own mind that I know is Truth.
