It has been my desire for some time to send a testimony to the Sentinel as an expression of gratitude for the many blessings that I have received during a period of three years of the study of Christian Science. One of many, and also the first, blessings for which I am most grateful which brought me proof of the Science of being and the reality of Life, Truth, and Love, was the healing about three years ago of the disease known by the medical faculty as appendicitis. My condition reached such a stage that I was unable to attend to my daily work. A physician was called, and after examination he said that the only way to restore my health was through an operation. My financial circumstances did not agree with the physician's orders. A friend who worked with me advised me to take Christian Science treatment, which I did and received instant relief. Next day I returned to work; two hours later I began to feel the same pain coming back. I called on the practitioner over the telephone for help and received the answer, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." I believed those words and began to think: "What have I been believing? A lie. What is a lie? Nothing claiming to be something. What is truth? Health, Life, and Love in which you dwell," and instantly the pain disappeared, until one morning I awoke with the same pain. I reached after "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," finding the same words, "Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free," and in a few moments I was free. For this beautiful healing I am indeed grateful. Christian Science has proved to be an ever present help. I can only exclaim with the psalmist, "Bless the Lord, O my soul," and may God bless Mrs. Eddy. My daily prayer is that I may attest my sincerity in daily deeds.
