In Christian Science we know that every day is one of thanksgiving, and I wish to express my gratitude through our periodicals, which are providing us so bountifully with spiritual food, for this religion taught by our Master and revealed to us by our Leader, Mrs. Eddy. Headaches from which I had suffered since childhood and for which everything was given a fair trial,—doctors, oculists, electricity, baths, diet, rest cure, and so-called mental science having been resorted to all to no purpose,—have been overcome in Christian Science. Attacks of tonsillitis and what is known as diphtheritic sore throat, which came regularly every winter, are now unknown; sleeplessness has been overcome, and many other physical difficulties; but my deepest gratitude is over the disappearing of petty characteristics of temperament, such as supersensitiveness and self-pity, which made life miserable for myself and others. What I once saw as big and little problems are now seen to be only steps and stages in working out the one problem, that is, a sense of separation from God. The harmony which has come with a clearer understanding of this practical religion extends to the workers of the household and even to the animals.

I am most grateful to our Master, Christ Jesus, and to our Leader, Mrs. Eddy, for guiding us so tenderly and gently to this light which reveals our at-one-ment with God, divine Love. The lines in our textbook, "Self-abnegation, by which we lay down all for Truth, or Christ, in our warfare against error, is a rule in Christian Science" (p. 568), are enabling me to do things which appeared impossible before beginning the study of Christian Science.
