I write this in loving gratitude for the by-law extending the age limit of the Christian Science Sunday School pupils. When I first took up Christian Science I had attended the Sunday School but a few weeks when I was told that only children under fifteen years of age were admitted. I had been just long enough to realize the blessings that were to be gained here by the child who really wanted the truth. I longed for the truth, and was badly in need of healing. I remember the teacher told me that my eyes could be healed and I should soon have no need of glasses. Let it suffice to say that it was only a short time till my eyes were perfectly well. In the few weeks I was in the Sunday School I gained more knowledge of God than I had in all my life before. When I heard the new by-law read that went into effect last year, it was with a deep sense of joy that I realized one of my greatest desires had been gratified. To have the privilege of being a Sunday School pupil is one of the greatest blessings that can come to a student in Christian Science. It arouses us into energy and activity in recognizing God's demands.

I am very thankful to God, and grateful to our Leader for this healing truth. It is being proved to me daily that "divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need" (Science and Health, p. 494).
