It is a joy to express my gratitude for Christian Science

It is a joy to express my gratitude for Christian Science. I love to think of it, in the words of our beloved Leader, as "stately Science" (Science and Health, p. 566). Since Christian Science first came into our home in 1883, the blessings which have been ours cannot be numbered. My mother, a chronic invalid for many years, was healed while reading the Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." My father at the same time was cured of what physicians call softening of the brain, and also of a chronic cough. In all these years he has been a wonder to his business associates. As we count time, he is old, but at eighty-three years of age he retains his vigor and freshness, and attends to his business in a way that is surprising to those with whom he is associated.

Many trials and problems have confronted me, but never for a moment have I ever lost sight of the all-good that is taught by our Leader in Science and Health and her other writings. And so, "through the harsh noises of our day," as a loved hymn runs, "a low sweet prelude finds its way" (Hymnal, p. 18), and that "prelude" is the first glimpse I had of Life, Truth, and Love, which has deepened and broadened as the years have rolled by. My gratitude and love for Christian Science, and to Mrs. Eddy, its Discoverer and Founder, is ever increasing. I rejoice in this wonderful truth that is breaking the fetters of all mankind.
