As Christmas time approaches I am reminded of the blessings received through the study of Christian Science. From early childhood I had a weak throat and often was sick at Christmas. At the time I came to Christian Science the trouble had become a form of chronic tonsillitis. The throat was constantly irritated and at times I had scarcely any voice at all. In July, 1904, I had congestion of the lungs and this caused some alarm among my family, as a sister had passed away with tubercular disease. Shortly after I began reading "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," however, all traces of lung trouble disappeared, and I have had no return of it during the past fourteen years, neither has my throat ever been sore since. Through reading the textbook I was also healed of the nervous habit of biting my finger nails. My voice continues to grow stronger, and my gratitude increases.

I am grateful for the blessing that Christian Science is to the world, and for the purification, peace, and healing it has brought to me, but words alone can never express heartfelt gratitude; we must, as Mrs. Eddy tells us on page 15 of Science and Health, "let our lives attest our sincerity."
