For one made happy in every way through Christian Science,...

For one made happy in every way through Christian Science, it is hard to pick out one thing that stands above another in the treasure house of blessings, so first I will express my gratitude for the completeness of the healing. It is touching everything for me with tranforming, beautifying power. Before I began to study Christian Science I had no hope that I or any one else could solve any life problem. I had no faith in God or man, and faith in myself was many times a minus quantity. Only those who have passed through that condition of thought can know the joy of the abiding surety that the healing Principle is. Even in the depths of suffering, or when discouragement darkens the vision, there is always the conviction that the problem is solvable.

The blessing of physical healing has come to me through Christian Science; but I know that if the change had been only physical I would not have the joy of gratitude I now have, for when I found Christian Science I did not know how to be grateful. The first physical healing came through reading the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. That was a healing of constipation that had bothered me all the years I could remember. More slowly, yet just as surely, came relief from other ailments incident to that condition, among them indigestion, gastritis, hemorrhoids, and sick headaches. That first healing was more than six years ago, and since then the material remedies to which I had previously resorted almost every day for many years have not been used once. The healing efficacy of Christian Science has been proved for me many times since then, in overcoming acute stomach trouble, tonsillitis, grippe, rheumatism, influenza, and other discordant conditions.
