I wish to express my gratitude for the help and care that Christian Science gave us in the tornado which struck Murphysboro, Illinois. I was in the town, in a two-story building, when the storm broke. To mortal sense the wind was very great. I thought of my three children at school, and the first words that came to me were: "God is good. I know He is good; and God is Love." Then I said the Lord's Prayer over and over. In about a minute and a half the storm was over; the town in the northwest part, where my children were in school, was flat and gone—blown away. In running from downtown, where I was at the time, to the school, twelve blocks away, I kept repeating the ninety-first psalm and saying, "God is good." I passed the school, which was in ruins, and went home first, where I found my three children safe. One is eleven years old, one eight, and one six. I asked them if they prayed, and they said, "Yes." With that I said, "I thank Thee, Father, for hearing me, and I know 'that thou hearest me always.' " My husband also came home unhurt.

I am indeed grateful for Christian Science, for the teaching that enabled me to declare the truth in the midst of the awful things my ears and eyes were telling. I am grateful for the many beautiful healings we have had in our home through Christian Science. I am grateful for the Sunday school, and to our dear Leader, Mrs. Eddy, for her wonderfull work. And we can all be grateful for the work the Christian Science Relief Committees have done through the tornado path; it is truly wonderful. I am indeed grateful to God, and to know that He is Love.
