To say that I am grateful for Christian Science does not begin to express my feelings. I have been a faithful student for only three years, but having been in touch with this teaching and having read the literature for about six years. I feel that at least this part of my life has not been lived in vain.

I have had many beautiful healings and blessings and hardly know where to begin to relate somthing that will be helpful to others. Before I had learned to depend on Christian Science a trial came to me one evening with my baby, who was then about four months old. She had swallowed some frosted milk without my knowing of its condition. As our family doctor had moved away I could not send for him, and the thought came to me that this was the time to test Christian Science. I did not doubt Love's might, but felt that my own understanding was too slight to demonstrate it; however, I knew of nothing to do but read Science and Health, which I did between spells. The fits of violent crying would come on every few minutes and I would be compelled to lay the book down until she was quiet again. This kept on for a few hours, when I could see improvement. In a short time there was complete restoration, also a marked advancement in cheerfulness. This was very encouraging to me. I have had many beautiful healings myself since. One day three years ago, while reading the Lesson-Sermon, I took off my glasses and have not had them on since. It was a hungry, pining heart which drove me to seek rest and comfort in Christian Science. My healing has been slow, but it has led to greater growth in spirituality.

I am so thankful to have found this healing truth and do so appreciate that great gift of God to humanity, the life of Mrs. Eddy. The authorized literature is truly my daily bread.—(Mrs.) Bertha C. Marable, Dayton, N. Mex.
