While waiting for a friend in the library of a downtown hotel recently, I noticed a Christian Science Journal on the table. Reading some of the testimonies brought back an instantaneous healing that came to me in that some room some time ago.

After a very busy day in the shops there seemed to be a sense of physical weariness, confusion, and headache. It was my intention to go home and return later to the Wednesday evening meeting, but I was unable to do so, and went to the hotel where I knew Christian Science literature could be had. After reading Science and Health for a few minutes, I opened to page 494 and my eyes fell upon these words: "It is not well to imagine that Jesus demonstrated the divine power to heal only for a select number or for a limited period of time, since to all mankind and in every hour, divine Love supplies all good." The realization of the truth of that statement brought instantaneous healing, the inharmonious condition was entirely met, and I went on my way rejoicing.

This is only one of many healings that have come to me through the teachings of Mrs. Eddy. The physical healings, beautiful as they are, seem small compared with the wonderful happiness, security, confidence, and joy that a better understanding of God brings. There have been many testing times, but the mantle of divine Love was always thrown about me, and Truth, the strong deliverer, protected and saved. I am beginning to realize that there is only one Father-Mother God, one Shepherd, and one flock.
