I feel it is time for me to acknowledge the many blessings I have received through Christian Science,—what it has done for myself and family. My oldest son had hip-disease; he could not lie down and sleep, but would stand up beside the bed, or lie on his stomach, which was the only way he could sleep without pain. I took him to a Christian Science practitioner, and from that time on he has been able to lie down to sleep. About six years ago an abscess gathered and burst, and every one said it would never heal, or that it would open again. It did heal in a few weeks, and has never troubled him since. My other son had stomach trouble, with severe bloating. I took him to a doctor, who gave him medicine, but the trouble continued until I took him to the practitioner, and now he can eat as much as he wants. My daughter had a case of diphtheria, and she was healed in a week. I was afraid to take her out, but the Scientist said, "There is no fear in love," and she did not suffer. My husband had been suffering from stomach and heart trouble for two years. He tried Christian Science, but did not get well as soon as he expected, and went to see a doctor. He was not cured, so he went back to Science and now he has no more trouble. I am grateful for a healing of quinsy. A boil would gather in my throat every winter, but since I went to see the Christian Scientist I have never had it,—that is, for the last eight years. I also suffered with rheumatism, and that is all gone, with many other ailments. I study the book, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, and I am very thankful to God, and to her, for what the truth has done for us.
