It is a pleasure to send my testimony to the Sentinel, though words fail when I would express the gratitude that my heart speaks. After finding that physicians could do nothing for my eyes but give me heavier glasses, I went to God in prayer. Every morning I spent some time in reading the Bible and praying to God to heal my eyes. Having read of the many whom Jesus had healed, I had no doubt but that I could be healed through prayer. The 32d verse of the thirteenth chapter of Luke, in which I read, and read again, "I do cures to-day and to-morrow," was an assurance to me that the same healing could be done to-day as was in Jesus' time. A very short time after this, I was told that if I would try Christian Science I would not have to wear glasses. About two weeks after this I began taking treatment, and after three months' treatment I was able to lay off my glasses, which I had worn twenty years. I was not willing to lay them off, but when I broke them three times in two weeks I knew it was time to lay them aside. I have been able to overcome colds to which I was subject. I have also been healed of catarrh of long standing. Indigestion was overcome in two weeks' treatment, and rheumatism in three days, whereas a similar attack, in the old days, lasted three weeks.

I am not only grateful for the physical healing, but for the spiritual uplift and the peace that have come to me. I was very despondent before taking up Christian Science, but am happy now. My heart goes out daily in loving gratitude to God, to our Leader, Mrs. Eddy, for Science and Health, and for the helpful publications of our Publishing Society.
