We often hear the expression, "Is life worth living?" To me it certainly was not, twelve months ago, for I was then suffering agony from inflammatory rheumatism in its worst form. I could not move a muscle in my whole body, which seemed to be swollen to twice its natural size. At the same time I had convulsions of the stomach, suffering intense misery at times. I did not think I could live through them, I was so low. I thought I would never be able to care for my children again. I was unable to nurse my baby, six weeks old. My friends stood by my bedside, expecting I would not be with them long, as most of the time I was delirious. My husband asked me which I wanted, a doctor or a Christian Scientist, and I told him I preferred a Christian Science practitioner, as I had witnessed a beautiful demonstration on my little girl a year before. and I thought I might receive help. I sent to the same practitioner who had brought my little daughter through. She came and stayed all night and I received immediate relief. She gave me a week's absent treatment, and in a week from the first treatment I was up and around with my family. Although I had not nursed my baby for over two weeks, the power of Truth to supply this need was declared, and in three days there was more food than the baby could use.

I am to-day in good health and doing all my own work for a family of six, besides three boarders. I can never be thankful enough for the truth which brought me safely through the storm of error, but the physical help was nothing, compared to the spiritual. I am now able to see the power of divine Love, and I can help ny children as well as myself to overcome error. I can never be thankful enough to Mrs. Eddy for giving to the world the book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." My daily prayer to God is that I may live so close to Truth that error can never enter my thought.
