Many times, as I have feasted upon these messages of loving gratitude to God for His great goodness, as they go forth to help some hungering heart, wandering in the desert of human hopes, I have longed to add a word that might also go forth and not return void.

Christian Science came to me four years ago, when the darkness seemed impenetrable. Two years and a half previous to this time, my husband had passed on, leaving me in the throes of deepest grief, with a baby boy eleven months old. I had always longed to know God. Though in the blackness, while I did not understand, I did not believe this separation was the work of God and, day after day, week after week, I prayed only these words, "O God, show me the way." I could not have had a more perfect answer to my prayer than the guidance which brought to me the light as revealed in Christian Science.

Struggling along as best I could, a severe illness seemed to fasten itself upon me, and at this point a prominent physician of our city made the declaration that one of my lungs was seriously affected and that I would not live six months unless I had a change of climate and perfect rest, as I was in dire need. I fully realized the dire need, but, having given my husband all that medical skill and human help could possibly give, I had lost all faith in human aid and had no desire to follow his treatment. At this point, through the loving help of two faithful friends who saw my need and presented the Christ, Truth, to me, I also soon knew that I did not need what the physician could do. I needed God and I turned to Him completely and unreservedly and once again it was proved that "man's extremity is God's opportunity." I was quickly and perfectly healed and was truly grateful, but that was only the beginning of countless blessings in store for me.
