While brooding over the ills of one I hold most dear, and seeming to see only discord, I picked up a copy of the Sentinel and began to read the article, "Loving chords." Before finishing the article all sense of discord, doubt, and discouragement gave way to thoughts of hope and courage, and my heart was so filled with gratitude for the light and encouragement that have come to me through reading the Sentinel that I desire to express my gratitude that others, too, may know.

Through the work of a practitioner I got a glimpse of the truth, the desire for which has continued to grow, and many and varied have been the benefits received from studying "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. At one time my little daughter was taken sick with yellow jaundice, but, my husband being opposed to what he thinks Christian Science to be, I did not feel free to call a practitioner, so began to work for her with what little understanding I had. My husband said he was going to get her some medicine, so seemingly the only thing I could say was for him to get it if he felt she needed it, but that I did not think it necessary. No more was said, neither was any medicine bought, and in a little over a week she was as well as ever and able to go on a railroad journey of several hundred miles, during the worst of winter weather, with no ill effects. During the same winter, by holding steadfastly to the truth, I was healed of influenza. For these healings I am indeed very grateful, but more so for the great lessons of love, for I am indeed learning a little more each day to love my neighbor as myself.
