I cannot find words fitly to express the gratitude I feel for the many benefits I have received through Christian Science, in fact I am just beginning to learn the meaning of the word gratitude; neither can I enumerate the daily blessings which this wonderful truth is unfolding to me. For the realization of the ever-presence and protection of God I am most grateful. Many times both myself and baby have had seemingly narrow escapes from accident, so near that I can only liken them to a flying missile which passes so closely and so swiftly that you feel the stir in the atmosphere; but, as the psalmist has said, "Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;" for "there shall no evil befall thee." I have paused and thought, as Jacob of old, "Surely the Lord is in this place; and I knew it not." With the aid of a practitioner, neuralgia, fear of childbirth, and discordant conditions of many kinds have been overcome, and I experienced harmonious delivery and perfect healing.

I am grateful to God, and to our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy. I am also grateful to those whose remarks cheer us in the Wednesday evening meetings, and to those who contribute to the Christian Science periodicals, for many times, when I have been in the valley of depression, they have in this way extended me a helping hand and elevated my thought above the despondency and discouragement which seemed to beset me, thus proving the words of our Leader. "Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need (Science and Health, p. 494).
