In gratitude to God and Mrs. Eddy I desire to submit a testimony of a physical healing which I experienced many years ago. I had been under the care of a physician for several years, constantly growing weaker, until finally I was told I could not live in this climate. My physician told me it would be necessary for me to have two or three operations before I could hope to recover my health, and in this climate the tissues would not heal sufficiently from one operation to perform the other. He advised me to go immediately to Denver, recommending a specialist there who would take care of me. So the days following were quite the saddest I had ever experienced. This meant to break up my home, leave all my relatives and even my husband, for he could leave his business only long enough to take me there and see me settled and then I would be entirely alone.

For months I went to the specialist but did not improve, and together with my loneliness and homesickness I found I was growing still weaker. It was then through the invitation of a lady I had met who was a Christian Scientist, that I decided to try Christian Science. Up to this time I had always been almost bitter against it. I knew very little about it, but finding myself without hope in any other direction, I went to a Christian Science practitioner. Man's extremity proved to be God's opportunity, for words cannot express my gratitude for that hour. From my first visit I seemed to feel there was hope. Faithfully and earnestly I followed out the instructions given by the practitioner and gradually I began to improve. In a few weeks I was completely healed.

For me a new day had dawned, a day bright with health, hope, and happiness, for God was the light of my life. I had found that God is Principle, by which every problem of life can be solved, and so I started to learn the rules and apply them. I am so grateful to know that to the extent that I understand and apply the teachings of Christian Science I find peace, love, harmony, and health.
