It is with a sense of deep gratitude and unspeakable love that I add my testimony to those of the many who are daily thanking God through our periodicals. Nearly fifteen years ago I was healed, after having had two convulsions, and when I was very near the shadow of death. A dear friend who was an earnest Scientist came to see me, and she said to my sister that she would treat me. I had been unconscious for some time and could not choose for myself, so she gave me the treatment and in twenty minutes I was relieved and conscious. I shall never forget my awakening to spiritual consciousness, for I knew I was healed! Although it was some time before the manifestation of health was perfect, yet I never had any fear. I knew that God was my life; in fact, I had been born again, and the fear manifested by the rest of the family never touched me. Old things had truly passed away, and all things had become new.

Since that time we have used no material remedies in the family. Our little girl, thirteen years old, has never taken any medicine in her life. She has had many ailments overcome for her in Christian Science, and now she is well and happy all the time. My husband has had many beautiful demonstrations made for him also, and one was so wonderful that I would like to tell of it. He had an illness, and had recovered, as we thought, when one night he grew suddenly worse. I was awakened by his suffering about four o'clock and I treated him; but he grew worse, and I became more fearful, as he suffered with every breath. In the morning I called a practitioner and asked her to treat at once, as the pain had increased. In an hour I called the practitioner again and told her that he was worse. I was weeping, but she said to me lovingly, "What you need is God." If ever I tried to make the demonstration over fear I did that morning, and in one hour after I called the practitioner the second time my husband got up and called her himself, telling her he was healed. His first words were, "Praise God from whom all blessings flow." And he was healed! All the pain was gone, and he did not lie down again that day. We were told afterward by one who understands materia medica that the attack was of a most serious nature and usually considered fatal; but my husband was healed in two hours' time and we proved that God is indeed a very present help in trouble. This was over six years ago, and there have been no bad results from this illness.

We certainly are grateful to Mrs. Eddy for having shown us the way, and we thank God daily for all our blessings, which are more than we could ask or think. We are trying each day to count our blessings. While we appreciate the physical healing, the real blessing that has come to us is the spiritual, and the giving out of some of this truth that has meant so much to us.
