After years of bondage to materia medica, I was healed...

After years of bondage to materia medica, I was healed in 1917 of chronic stomach and bowel trouble, in four treatments, in Christian Science. Knowing nothing of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, at that time, I had an earnest longing to know what had brought about the change. During this period of searching I was instantaneously healed of defective sight. This healing came to me through such a wonderful revelation of the truth that the experience has been an inspiration on many occasions. One evening my mother wanted me to read to her but I wanted to be alone, thinking I could get more out of studying alone and I did not want to read aloud, but immediately came the thought, "Selfishness." I picked up a Christian Science Journal with a great desire to help, and as I read down the pages the print became so large, clear, and black I could scarcely believe I was seeing correctly. I reached up to see if by magic something had been done to my glasses and I discovered I had forgotten to put them on. And right there this wonderful truth dawned upon me that all the healing that is necessary is a correction of thought. And since then, no difference what the aches or pains may be, I know it is a wrong thought that needs correcting and not a physical condition to be healed, and, with an earnest longing for perfection, God has never failed me. I am grateful for merited rebuke. I wish also to express my gratitude for the loving-kindness and patience of a practitioner, also to Mrs. Eddy for her loving sacrifice to help humanity. I am grateful for the literature, membership in The Mother Church, and for the knowledge which I have of Christian Science. In the words of the psalmist, "I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness."
