I have desired for some time to send a few words of gratitude to our periodicals, and will delay no longer. I am thankful for Christian Science for many reasons, some of which I will give. Christian Science found me trying to serve God as a blind leader of the blind. I was filled with the fear of death for myself as well as for others. I see now that I did not know God, for God is Love and "perfect love casteth out fear." To know God is life eternal, and I am thankful to have the privilege of living in the light of the Christian Science gospel. I have been lifted out of sorrow, and I feel sure, though I have been severely censured by loving relatives and friends for entering this new-old way, that I have been able to help them, whereas I might otherwise have been a care and burden.
I have experienced healing through Christian Science on several occasions. In the winter of 1907 I was to all appearances quite sick with a heavy cold. Our family physician was very much worried about me, as were also my relatives, who thought I should be taking material remedies, as I had symptoms of serious lung trouble. I tried to overcome fear for myself, but as I was suffering very much, I thought I had better have help; so I wrote to a practitioner for absent treatment, as there were no Scientists near me. On the day my letter reached the practitioner I began to be relieved, and was soon healed. I did not take any medicine at that time, nor have I taken any for the past eight or nine years. At this Easter season I am thankful to have a clearer understanding of the resurrection,—that great awakening to a knowledge of the true man as the image of God, Spirit, which enables us to worship God "in spirit and in truth."
I read every word in our periodicals, and wish to thank the editors and all who contribute to them, and above all our dear Leader, who has opened the door to this happy way to health, holiness, and heaven.
