In a most true sense of loving gratitude, I send in my testimony of healing, that some pilgrim may be helped and encouraged. I had been laboring under an attack of appendicitis for several months and having Chrisitna Science treatment, but progress was slow and I allowed myself to become ungrateful. On page 3 in Science and Health Mrs. Eddy says: "Are we really grateful for the good already received? Then we shall avail ourselves of the blessings we have, and thus be fitted to receive more." This I failed to do, and while in this state of ingratitude I was taken one night with so-called Spanish influenza in its worst from. The third day acute lung trouble set in, with severe pains in the lungs and heart. That evening I telephoned to my practitioner and asked her to come to the house, as all treatments prior to this had been absent.

Upon the arrival of the practitioner I seemed to be passing through the belief of death—the last enemy to be overcome. To one who does not understand Christian Science it would seem a miracle, but when we know that all things are possible to God, it no longer becomes one. I was brought back to life. The beautiful words of the twenty-third psalm then came to me, "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me." Upon hearing these words from the practitioner, "God is your Life and God never dies. The pilgrim has returned from her journey," I fully realized that death is what Mrs. Eddy says it is (Science and Health, p. 584)—"an illusion."
