In the year 1907 Christian Science literature was brought into my home, and since that time there have been many proofs that God is a very present help. The truth was vividly presented, when after only one day's illness in December, 1907, I was enabled to continue my duties with but the slightest symptom of weakness, and this ceased the following day. The attack was seemingly a severe one, but through the loving help of a Christian Science practitioner I realized that in God "we live, and move, and have our being." This was a wonderful healing, as the same experience had been passed through before, and had resulted in weeks of prostration while under medical treatment.

Yet another proof of the allness of God was shown in the knowledge that "accidents are unknown to God, or immortal Mind" (Science and Health,p. 424). While trying to reach for something, I fell against the sharp edge of a dresser and struck the side of my face very near the eye. For an instant I was stunned, but soon recovered. I was, however, unable to help myself, so I called on the practitioner again. The pain was great, while the swelling and discoloration were unpleasant to have or to behold. Indeed my family were alarmed at my condition, but in about a week there was nothing left to show that I had ever been hurt.

This is only a minor part of what Christian Science has done for me in the line of physical healing. At numerous other times I have been helped through the realization of the truth as presented by Mrs. Eddy. I am striving to learn more of this truth every day.
