"Bless the Lord, O my soul.... Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; who redeemeth thy life from destruction." These beautiful words seem most fittingly to describe my experience in Christian Science, as they have literally been fulfilled and demonstrated as true in my case. A year ago at this time, I was, to human sense, in about the last stages of a most torturing disease, which seemed to be slowly wasting my mortal life away. I was unable to swallow food, either solid or liquid, without suffering great torture and choking, so that I dreaded the thought of eating and went without food so much that I was reduced to a mere skeleton, weighing only ninety pounds; but I was kept alive through it all by "the bread which came down from heaven,"—through Christian Science treatment and the study of the Bible and our text-book, Science and Health. Now I am well, can eat naturally and comfortably anything I like; have gained twenty-five pounds, and am still gaining. Those who saw me last fall and thought I would not live through the winter are amazed at the change, and say they never saw anything like it before. They tell me they hardly know me, I look so much younger and better in every way. I am enjoying a greater sense of freedom in regard to the fear of cold, dampness, and drafts than I ever did before, and this means a great deal to me, as these things used to be my greatest bugbears.

All these blessings, and many more, too numerous to mention, have come to me through Christian Science, which gives us the understanding that God is the only Life and the only healer of all our disease. I am more grateful than words can tell for these blessings, and feel that only by living according to the requirements of this great truth can I ever prove my gratitude to God, and to His messenger, Mrs. Eddy, who so patiently and unselfishly has labored to show us the way out of selfishness and sin into the kingdom of heaven on earth.
