To enumerate in a short article, the many blessings I have received from an understanding of Christian Science would be impossible. I would like, however, to give my present realization of its benefits. One of my greatest troubles for the past two years has seemed to be a want of time. There was no time to think, no time to act, no time to plan, and no time to carry out plans if I did make them. I am fond of music, and teach it, but never found time to do any practising or study for myself; I was fond of reading, but never had time to read the many books I had bought, or to take proper advantage of our library facilities. If I got a book from the library, I could not find time even to take it back, until there would be a fine to pay on it.

Since I have studied Christian Science all this is changed. I began to find time to read by reading Science and Health last summer. Hours and days seem added to my life, and with them came understanding and additional pleasure in my music, my books, and my home. I now see, through my understanding of Christian Science, that I allowed myself to be bound or held by the influence of other minds around me, which seemed to cause me to stand still, my own thought not seeming to have proper volition. Since I have realized that there is but one Mind, and that the divine Mind, or, in other words, since I have known the truth, it has made me free indeed. I lack no time, there is time for everything and everything is done in its time. Domestic affairs adjust themselves without worry. I am at rest, and the peace that passeth understanding fills my life.—Mrs. C. B. Summers, Pittsburg, Pa.
