To say that I am thankful very faintly expresses my true gratitude for Christian Science, and for the many blessings it has brought into our home. My two boys were born under Christian Science care, a care that has proved invaluable many times since. The morning the elder boy was born, I opened our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and read these words (pp. 214, 215): "Spirit's senses are without pain, and they are forever at peace." I held to those words, and gained such a clear realization of them that the result was painless, peaceful, and harmonious in every detail. The second child was born under the same peaceful conditions; there was absolutely no pain or suffering.

These experiences have meant more to me than words can express, for they proved that there are no laws but God's laws; that God's work is done,—it is finished,—and all we need to do is to accept it, if we wish to reap the benefits that are here in store for us. We have had many other healings. Scarlet fever was overcome without any of the so-called bad effects; a very severe case of tonsillitis was beautifully healed; and through the realization of the truth, declared in the "scientific statement of being" (Science and Health, p. 468), intense pain caused by an ulcerated tooth was instantly met and the entire condition healed.

These are only a very few of the blessings that we have experienced. I thank God daily for His protection and tender care, and for the unfolding of this wonderful truth that has enabled us to start the children out in life with a true and right understanding of God.
