It is a privilege to glorify God by giving testimony to the efficacy of Christian Science, which has met my every need for the last fifteen years. About seven years ago I experienced a most practical proof of its healing power, when I slipped on an icy doorstep, falling on a heavy piece of crockery with such force that the rebound carried me five or six feet in the opposite direction. Although stunned, I was able with some assistance to get up and walk into the house. Instead of making an examination to see what was wrong, I tried to obey the admonition given by Mrs. Eddy in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 397), where she says, "Declare that you are not hurt and understand the reason why." To "understand the reason why" seemed a much more difficult process than the declaration that I was not hurt; but I knew that I must be faithful in applying the rule, and in a few moments was rewarded by feeling quite normal.

Later there seemed to be a sense of severe soreness to the left of the breastbone. The suggestion of an internal injury was taken up and understood to be untrue. Several days after this error was destroyed, I noticed that the left side, where the ribs and breastbone join, was about two inches higher than the right side. Now there is no indication whatsoever of any such injury, so I know that I experienced a demonstration of the surgery of Mind.
