I wish to express my gratitude for God's love and protection...

I wish to express my gratitude for God's love and protection at all times. I have been restores to health after twenty-one years of sickness, most of which time I was under doctors' treatment or taking medicine. I underwent several operations, and then went into a decline and was finally pronounced an invalid for as long as I might live. It seemed that only will power kept me alive during all those years of suffering despite the kind efforts of physicians who tried to the best of their ability to relieve the conditions. I had never heard of Christian Science until a dear sister decided to take up the study and asked me to take it up with her. Through the efforts of the kind and loving practitioner and friends to whom we were guided, I seemingly gained the right understanding, for my faith was as a little child's, ready for the truth which makes us free, and I was healed, one claim after another dissolving into its native nothingness. For all this I am indeed grateful, and for the many trials and claims that I have had to meet and have risen above since that time I am also grateful; they have all been opportunities to prove God's love and care, through which I have gained an understanding of Him. While some experiences seemed very hard and I became disheartened at times, I always received the needed help from a dear friend or practitioner, or from an article in our literature, which lifted my thought above the material evidence, and I would see light.

For all these blessings I am indeed grateful, and for the spiritual uplift gained through the study of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy I cannot fully express in words my gratitude but can only try to live it and express it in deeds. I hope this testimony may help some one coming through deep waters to know that God is ever present Love, an ever present help in time of trouble.
