I suppose there are others who, like myself, are approaching the specified number of years said to be allotted to man and, because of it, are troubled with thoughts of giving up and of limitation, and perhaps accepting physical conditions supposedly belonging to old age. Therefore I am writing this testimony of healing to express my gratitude, and to encourage others to hope in Him "who healeth all thy diseases."

I am deeply grateful for the teachings of Christian Science, which have led me away from a false estimate of life to the truth of divine Science. Time and age are no part of real Life, which has no beginning, no limitations, and is without end of days. To know this has brought to me joyous happiness and a quiet sense of security and peace. The power of Truth to meet my every need has been demonstrated in various ways. There have been healings, protection, and relief from lack, from inharmonious environment, and from extreme mental depression.

It was while passing through this discordant period that a physical problem became acute. I struggled for nearly two years with articular rheumatism and complications, said to be diseases of the aged, and incurable. I moved about very slowly and often with the support of a cane. There were days when I could not get up or walk at all. In spite of my effort to control my thought, a discouraged feeling of helplessness settled upon me. The belief of age, and of heredity, together with a mental picture of an aged grandmother in her invalid chair with like conditions, would creep in, until many times I felt ready to give up; but a remembrance of what Christian Science had done for me, and faith in the power of Truth to heal, as Mrs. Eddy reveals it to us in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" and her other writings, enabled me to hold on to the hope that it would be proved in my case.
