I feel that I would not be doing justice to Christian Science...

I feel that I would not be doing justice to Christian Science or to the world did I not acknowledge what Christian Science has done for me and mine. I cannot half express my thankfulness that this blessed truth has been given us through the love and unselfishness of our dear Leader, Mrs. Eddy. Recently I went with some relatives and others to visit a very beautiful spot, some four miles from here. Our trip over the water was delightful, but we had not been on land five minutes when a very severe storm broke over us. It lasted about half an hour, then the sun shone out again bright and clear. We remained about an hour then set sail for home. From the land the water looked calm, but we had not gone far when the waves began to sun high; the wind was blowing very strong, and with that and the current against us considerable fear was manifested. We were some three hours making the four miles, for we had to cross and recross many times to make any headway whatever, and it seemed dreadful when we came out in the current. The nearer we came to the wharf the higher the waves were, and again and again the boat dipped water.

My mother and I were the only Christian Scientists, and the hymn, "In atmosphere of Love divine," was a great help to me. I sang the second verse aloud over and over again, and along with my mother's work in the realization that there was no other power but God, we landed safe in harbor. There were many on the wharf watching us through field-glasses, and much fear and anxiety was manifested by them all for our safety, but we had the strong assurance that "The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighy waves of the sea."

My mother and I have been in Christian Science nine years, and many demonstrations have been made over sickness and accidents, but this last experience means much to us, and it also gave us an opportunity to tell of Science. Trusting that I may learn more and more of this blessed truth, I wish to express my love for our Leader and Cause.
