I wish to express my gratitude for what Christian Science...

I wish to express my gratitude for what Christian Science has done for me. In 1916 experienced my first healing after suffering for many years from stomach trouble and its attendant ills, the trouble having been considered chronic by the many physicians whom I consulted. Although I took several kinds of medicine daily, the condition grew worse.

While in another city I became acutely ill. Having heard of the wonderful healing work which was being accomplished by Christian Science, I decided to give it a trial; so I asked a practitioner for help, which was lovingly given, the result being instantaneous healing. All material remedies were immediately discarded. Christian Science has been my only physician during the years since then, and many discordant conditions have been overcome.

A few years ago, when attending one of our Wednesday evening testimony meetings, and while listening to the readings from the Bible and "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, I was healed of a physical ailment which had troubled me for several months. Mrs. Eddy says on page 261 of Science and Health, "Hold thought steadfastly to the enduring, the good, and the true, and you will bring these into your experience proportionably to their occupancy of your thoughts." By trying to be obedient to this loving counsel, I was able to prove the truth of it. After retiring for the night, I was suddenly seized with severe pain. I arose and read from Science and Health, striving to lift my thought above error by persistently declaring the truth about God and man. As the suffering became more intense, I requested my husband to telephone to a practitioner for help; but that was impossible, as he found that the telephone was out of order. I continued to work for about an hour, as we learn to do in Christian Science, but the pain became so severe that I seemed to be losing consciousness. I still clung to the truth as best I could, and suddenly I was lifted into freedom and perfect harmony. The healing was complete. I was even more grateful for this as a proof of God's love and care than for the relief from suffering.
