Sorrow Turned into Joy

I did not come into Christian Science through physical healing, but through a great sorrow. My only daughter had passed on and I felt utterly alone. For three years I wandered through a wilderness of despairing thoughts, when a dear sister in Science said, "Come to church with me, perhaps you will feel better." I went to a Friday evening meeting, I was deeply impressed, I took part in the service as far as I could. Oh, what a restful feeling came over me the moment I entered the hall! I attended the following Sunday service and joined a class in Sunday School. All this gave me great comfort. Some weeks after this I had a severe attack of billiousness, which my dear teacher put suddenly to rout. Soon after that I awoke one morning to find my left arm paralyzed. The pain was intense and had been for two or three days previous. I again went to my teacher as soon as possible. She treated me about noon of that day and the next evening my arm was as well as ever except a slight weakness. The next morning I went to church feeling very happy in knowing that my arm was healed through Science. Since then I have been able to overcome many ills for myself as well as others, and I rejoice and my heart is made glad in this blessed Truth.—
