Christian Science healed me of spinal trouble supposed to be caused partly by an enlarged liver, and a strain afterward left me an invalid for nearly seven years. I was able to walk but a few steps, or even to stand but a few minutes at a time. I was subject to severe attacks which the attending physician said would carry me off. Fourteen years before, I had an attack of lung trouble from which I had never fully recovered. I could not use my right arm without pain, and when I complained of this to my physician he replied that I would always have pain when I used the arm, on account of organic trouble. I told the Scientist who treated me of this trouble and the doctor's verdict. She smiled kindly and replied that God did not make any such law. In a few days I noticed the absence of pain, and it has never returned. This was seventeen and a half years ago. With the healing came freedom from the pain, and in five months I could walk from the carriage into the stores to do shopping, and all about the house. It was the first time I had been conscious of freedom from suffering for so long a time that I did not know any one ever felt as I did when freed. I also ate what was set before me, which was a great relief to the family. In a few months I was free, and happy in the hope that I might do for some poor sufferer what had been done for me. I felt like the man whom Peter healed at the Beautiful Gate of the temple, and I have never had a sick day since. The sense of rest and peace which came to me from the first was so beautiful, and the best part of it all was that spiritual healing came with the physical. The knowledge of how to overcome evil with good was such a priceless treasure. Words cannot express my gratitude to God, and to Mrs. Eddy for the truth which has led me along these many years in the way our Father has opened, and which makes the Bible teachings practical.
