With a heart filled with thankfulness to God for the truth as taught and demonstrated by Jesus, I can again voice my praise and thanks for the power of Truth over all evil—sin, sickness, and death. My first healing, which was of appendicitis, in 1912, convinced me that "with God all things are possible." As Mrs. Eddy says in "Retrospection and Introspection" (p. 60), "Science saith to all manner of disease, 'Know that God is all-power and all-presence, and there is nothing beside Him;' and the sick are healed." In my first experience I was healed after all material remedies had failed. Not so the next time, for I knew that God is the only healer, and needed and wanted only His help. I realized that only the omnipotent God could possible help me in this case. I was paralyzed, could not speak a word, my entire right side was helpless. My brain was also affected. It was only another opportunity to prove God's allness and the promise, "He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him."

This healing has seemed slow, but there are no regrets, for it has been three years more of spiritual thinking, gaining understanding and wisdom,—God's most precious gifts. I am so glad to be able to make our own demonstrations, so thankful for the good this blessed truth brings to humanity. I am grateful for our churches and literature, am grateful to all who are helping to establish the reign of peace and harmony on earth. I am grateful to God, to Christ Jesus, and to our dear Leader, Mary Baker Eddy.
