Five years have elapsed since my healing in Christian Science...

Five years have elapsed since my healing in Christian Science and I feel that it is my duty to acknowledge publicly a few of the blessings received. Owing to my ignorance of God I was tossed about by the waves of error, until an accident awakened me. Waking up in a hospital after many hours of unconsciousness, I found myself upon a bed of suffering and in dire distress. An operation was performed, as I had sustained a compound fracture of the kneecap and a fracture at the base of the skull. In due time I was taken home and was cared for, meanwhile enduring agony of mind and body. The result was that when I finally arose from my bed I had a stiff limb, was greatly emaciated, and seemed without hope or God in the world. My relatives had offered me the truth, but I had scoffed at and refused what I thought Christian Science to be.

At this stage I was so despondent I thought I must do something, as my condition was desperate. I sought out a practitioner and her loving encouragement and reassurance of my true birthright lifted a great burden from my heart. As I left this dear woman I actually felt happy. I improved steadily and I could walk freely again. Many phases of error presented themselves after this healing, but by continually turning to Christian Science I regained health and peace of mind. I wish to mention also the overcoming of asphyxia, and of grief at the passing on of a loved one.
