I have been a student of Christian Science for over four years, and during that time have had many loving assurances of God's ever-presence.

I had been depending on glasses for several years, and when I read the testimony of a lady who had laid aside her glasses and trusted to Truth, although she could at first only read the headlines in her daily paper, I immediately put mine away, and have never used them since. At first I read the daily Lesson from a large family Bible, but soon I realized that I should depend on Principle, so I took my Bible with very small print again. Sometimes, before I could read the Lesson, I have sat for half an hour, realizing the source of all light, and that no matter how error seemed to hold sway, the light was there. From the very first I could read Science and Health, the Sentinel, and Journal without any trouble. Now I want to proclaim from the housetop that "The Lord is good!" While holding to the truth day by day, several other ailments have been overcome, so if it was not an immediate demonstration I may have gained more understanding of the truth by having to work constantly. Many suggestions of error would come to tempt me,—one the thought that it is natural for mankind to need glasses at such an age, and that this was more difficult to overcome than an affliction of the eyes. I, however, would put them aside, knowing it was a man-made law, which was annulled by the law of God.

I want to thank Mrs. Eddy for Science and Health and its great help in rightly understanding God's Word.
