I am writing these lines, hoping that I may express, even in a small way, something of my gratitude for Christian Science and what it has done for me. I came into Science some sixteen years ago, and was then about ten years old. My mother accepted it at that time and I naturally and gladly followed her. Despite my youth and willingness, however, my advance in the truth was slow, and of this I complained until my unfinished demonstrations piled up and I was obliged to work and work hard. Then I was shown that I was too apt to procrastinate, letting my work run along, intending to take it up at a more convenient time, and that the great fault centered in self. But "man's extremity is God's opportunity," and through severe lessons we finally learn that only continual work will advance us in understanding, and that procrastination is indeed a thief to be overcome.
I have been healed of many things. When I was about fourteen, I was riding on a delivery wagon, and a small snaphook suspended from the wagon-top caught into my eye between the eyeball and the eyelid. With the jolting of the wagon it was wonderful that it did not tear my eyelid away, but the idea that God is ever-present and all-powerful flashed through my thought and the hook slipped out easily. Faith the size of a mustard seed will not only remove mountains, but will forestall error, no matter what the conditons may be. My eye was slightly bruised but never caused me any pain.
Several years later I sustained a fracture, while playing ball, but a week sufficed to mend it and enable me to return to my work. I did not have the bone set, but let Truth do the entire work, and it was well done. My progress has been slow in the overcoming of a supposedly hereditary ailment, but I am very glad to say that last year I was not obliged to be absent from my work at all, while other years I had been compelled to stay at home from one to three weeks.
