Some years ago I was a physical wreck, having been for several years either bedfast or chairfast continually. I had submitted to two serious operations, only to find my condition worse than before and I could not sleep at all unless I took a powerful drug; in fact, I was kept under this influence much of the time. I could only eat two or three articles of food. After being treated by at least fifteen different physicians, who without doubt did all in their power to aid me, I was finally advised to go to another locality to spend my remaining days, where it was thought a lower altitude and sea air might alleviate my suffering. Soon after arriving there I became interested in Christian Science through the healing of a lady I met there who had had troubles similar to mine. I received help at once, and after the first treatment I arose, dressed myself, and walked into the next room, and later went with my husband about four miles on the street car to visit my parents. I began at once, with great rejoicing, to eat whatever food the family ate, and, better still, to sleep quietly at night. In nine weeks I traveled about two hundred miles alone with my two children and took charge of my own work, which I have continued to do.

Many are the blessings that have come to us, the realization of the comforting presence of God that came to me at the time of the passing on of one most dear to me being one of the greatest; and I am learning that if it is right for me to do things I have never done before I can do them through divine guidance. Man is the reflection of infinite intelligence and, as Mrs. Eddy tells us on page 123 of Science and Health, "Divine Science, rising above physical theories, excludes matter, resolves things into thoughts, and replaces the objects of material sense with spiritual ideas." I am grateful for Christian Science, for the loving help that has been freely given me, and for the privilege of reading the Christian Science literature. I am most grateful for what Christian Science is doing for the world to-day.
