I wish to express my gratitude for Christian Science

I wish to express my gratitude for Christian Science. Words are inadequate to measure such a great blessing, but those who have felt the uplift and regeneration which this truth brings to all who turn to it, can understand the gratitude it also brings. I would like to tell of one out of many blessings which have come to me.

About two years ago, when I found that I was again to become a mother, there immediately ensued a period of great depression and discouragement. This condition was due to the fact that on two previous occasions, before I had come into Science, I had gone through such harrowing experiences that the memory of them cast the deepest gloom over me. Sometimes it seemed as though I could not endure what I thought was the inevitable experience attendant upon the birth of children. I could see another three years of sleepless nights, such as I had already passed through, stretching out before me, for my two little ones had slept very little at night, and what with weary days of care and work, and a constant train of sicknesses, there had been practically no freedom or recreation.

With the help of a faithful Christian Science practitioner, however, this mental condition was overcome several months before the time when the birth was expected, and I continued to improve until I felt that I could hardly wait to hold the little one in my arms, my sense of welcome and joy was so complete. When my husband saw my happiness, he also looked forward with pleasure to the newcomer. The birth was very harmonious, and there have been no sleepless nights, no weary days full of care and toil, and no train of sicknesses. Through improved financial circumstances, I have been able to keep help; the baby has been a joy to all of us, each day a pleasure; and I feel that my cup surely runneth over.
