I should like to express gratitude for the first healing...

I should like to express gratitude for the first healing experienced by me in Christian Science. It was of what is called shingles. Seemingly it was a most distressing condition. I was in much pain, and burdened with fear. At this time I had no knowledge of how to help myself, so a dear friend, who was a practitioner, was called. She worked for two days without any apparent relief. The third day was Sunday, and I had previously planned to go to The Mother Church with this friend. She advised me not to let error keep me from the good I would surely gain by the service. As I had to go quite a distance by train and trolley, it seemed almost an impossibility; but the thought of obedience was very clear to me, and as I wanted to be obedient, I went. It was hard for me even to listen to the service, so great was my discomfort, and that night and the next day the condition seemed much worse; but the following day I found myself completely healed of what to the medical thought is supposed to last several weeks. I am so grateful for this lesson. I have always found that the greatest blessings come through obedience.

I should like to express gratitude for the privilege of being a member of The Mother Church, and for the joy of having had class instruction. Words could never express my thankfulness to our beloved Leader, Mary Baker Eddy.
