It has been nearly four years since the light of Christian Science...
It has been nearly four years since the light of Christian Science first penetrated the darkness and despair that filled my life, and led as a beacon light to a haven of rest. Our six months' old baby was suffering from a skin disease which had spread over his entire body, and required constant care both night and day. Our little girl, four years old, was suffering from attacks of stomach trouble and an extreme nervousness which manifested itself chiefly in a twitching of the eyelids. Both children were under the care of a child specialist, who had prescribed for them a most rigid diet. I shall not forget the burden I felt when, because of this diet, the physicians said it rested with me whether the children got well, and that probably the little girl would never be able to eat in a normal way. But I rejoice to have learned in Christian Science that all these laws were man-made, and that God's law has rendered them null and void.
It is scarcely to be wondered at that I was weakened physically as well as spiritually, and was at times confined to my bed. At this time some relatives of my husband wrote that they were coming to our city, and this seemed the last straw, for we felt that we could not entertain them. But God's ways are not our ways, and when they came they were ever ready and willing to help, sacrificing their own pleasures for our good. They recommended that we try Christian Science for the baby. At first I would not listen, but occasionally they mentioned different healings they had experienced or witnessed, so that I became more and more interested.
After these relatives had been with us a few days I was taken sick, and expected to remain in bed three or four days, as I had done under similar conditions; but the next morning I got up, threw the usual remedy away, and have never had a return of the trouble. Since then Christian Science has been my only physician. In less than three weeks we began to have Science treatment for the baby. His healing was slow, but he is now a healthy boy with absolutely no trace of the trouble. It took us longer to rely entirely upon Christian Science for the little girl. We gave up the medicine, but still felt that she must diet. There came a time, however, when we found we could not bow down to both Spirit and matter, and must decide for one or the other. We then took our stand for Truth. After one week's treatment she was healed of the stomach trouble, and has had only one attack since, which was quickly overcome. The nervousness soon disappeared, and she is now a perfectly healthy child.
