Grateful for Light and Peace

I have long felt it my duty to tell at least a part of what Christian Science has done for me. Five years ago it found me a hopeless physical wreck, in bondage to all the ills that mortal mind is heir to. I had known of Christian Science for two years, but like many another, having ears, I heard not, and it was only through intense suffering which medicine could not alleviate, that I was brought at last to the Truth, and it has indeed made me free. One by one the bonds that held me were broken and I awoke to the fact that I was stronger than I had ever been before in my life. We have had three children born in Science. When the first was born I was only in bed about twelve hours. I took a buggy ride when the baby was two days old and never felt any ill effects from so doing, although friends and relatives predicted that I would, sooner or later. When the next one was born I never missed a meal from the table. I ate supper with the family, the child was born at two o'clock in the morning, and I arose at seven, dressed myself and ate breakfast with the family, and never went back to bed except for my regular night's sleep.

I arose when my last baby was three hours old and walked into the next room, and held the baby while my bed was prepared for the night.

One of our little ones, a girl not yet four years of age, has had several beautiful demonstrations, is a regular attendant at the Sunday School, and always learns the Subject and Golden Text so she can repeat it from memory.
