I have just been reading a number of the Sentinel, which is so full of joyful, heartfelt acknowledgments and songs of thanksgiving, that I feel I must join the others who give thanks, for my life is so full of blessings that I can never express my gratitude. When I think of the unbounded goodness and self-sacrificing spirit of our dear Leader, my words seem weak and ineffectual. Christian Science came into my life like a burst of sunshine. From being critical and sarcastic I became a lover of all humanity, from being uncharitable I learned to follow the example of our Master and our dear Leader, and the charity that thinketh no evil came to dwell with me. If I were to spend every day in writing of my thankfulness, there would still be many songs of praise to sing,

One day last fall my little boy came into my room and told me that some boys of the neighborhood with whom he had been playing had induced him to eat of a plant which I knew from his description was to mortal sense poisonous. I treated the little man for fear, declared the truth, and there were no ill effects. He apparently forgot all about it until evening, when he seemed very happy and expressed much faith in Christian Science.

I could tell of many tokens of divine Love in the few years that I have been in Christian Science. It has become my "shield and buckler;" I can never express my gratitude to divine Principle.
