I wish to express my gratitude to God for the many...

I wish to express my gratitude to God for the many blessings which have come to me during the past two years. For eight or nine years I possessed a copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, and after two or three unsuccessful attempts to read the book, I laid it aside, thinking no more about it until two years ago. The healing of my brother-in-law of alcoholism and other troubles brought such peace and joy to us, that I began to read and get a little understanding of what Christian Science means. For four years I had worn glasses for astigmatism, and one day, while reading in our text-book, I felt impelled to remove my glasses, and I have not worn them since. To read or sew without them used to cause severe nervous headaches, to which I became a prey. I have had but one headache in the two years, being able to overcome them in the beginning; also bronchial colds, which were quite severe every winter. I had one bad sore throat last winter and that was healed instantaneously. I have also been healed instantaneously. I have also been healed of fistula ulcers in about ten days, after having suffered all one summer; but I am more thankful for the spiritual healing and a better understanding of how to live aright.

My slight understanding has been a great help to me in my business and daily living. I am very thankful to our Leader, Mrs. Eddy, for the good work she has done and is doing for the benefit of mankind. My desire is to live and serve God to the best of my understanding.
