Words fail me when I attempt to express my gratitude...

Words fail me when I attempt to express my gratitude for the many blessings I have received through reading and studying Christian Science. Before coming into Christian Science I taught a Sunday school class for fourteen years in a denominational church of which I was a member, but what I taught, since I did not then know God as found in the light of Christian Science, is beyond me now to explain. I found myself in a pitiable condition at this time, financially, physically, mentally, and spiritually. I was a nervous wreck, my credit was at a low ebb, and I was but a shadow of my normal self. The first year was a trying one to me and I found much opposition to my new way of thinking; people thought it wrong to reject the old teaching and especially to give up the church and the Sunday school class. The healing of a bowel trouble which I had had all my life, also of a cough that came on every year during a portion of the winter, and of the financial trouble all took place during that year. When I recount the many victories I had that year, and have had since, I can truthfully say with the psalmist, "I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O Lord, will I sing." When the year since leaving my former home ended, I found that I had paid off my bills and had several liberty bonds and a good account to my credit in the bank. More, immeasurably more, I had found God, who healed my infirmities.

I am grateful to all the good people who have helped to show me the way, and especially to our revered Leader, Mrs. Eddy. Words fail to express the gratitude in my heart for all God has revealed to me of His love and for His ever present help in trouble. I have a new song to sing, a new tale to tell of a new heaven and a new earth. "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea."
