"If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up."
"If thou return to the Almighty, thou shalt be built up." This fact was proved to me some eight years ago when existence seemed unbearable. I was brought up in Christian Science from the age of three, and had a very happy life up to the time I disobediently left home at an early age. The opposition to my religion was overwhelming, but pride kept me from returning home; and it appeared easier to go along mortal mind's way, until I was forced through unhappiness to take my stand for Truth. During these years I did some studying, but none to speak of. However, the seed of Truth had been planted, and thoughts of Truth were constantly with me. These thoughts, I am convinced, saved me from destruction in an automobile accident which cut my face and scalp, and almost tore one arm from the body, breaking the arm between the shoulder and elbow, and crushing the bones between the elbow and wrist. I was unconscious for nearly twenty-four hours. It was feared that I should not again have the use of my hand and fingers, and I was expected to be in a plaster cast a good deal longer than I was. The crushed bones, which were to be wired as a possible means of restoring the use of my hand and fingers, the X-ray pictures showed completely healed when I was removed from the cast. The doctor was surprised beyond words, and said that he had never known anything like it in his life. I have perfect control of my arm; and the two small scars are practically invisible. A relative had a Christian Science practitioner give me one treatment at the time the bones were set.
It was not long after this occurrence that I turned with my whole heart to Christian Science; but there was one bad habit—that of smoking cigarettes—which did not go, until one day a practitioner inquired what it was that seemed to cause the desire. I told her that it came when I wanted to think or contemplate. Whereupon she answered that Mind unfolds without cigarettes and that I could think without them. The desire for them left me then and there, and I have never had a return of it.
