Mere words can never express my gratitude for Christian Science

Mere words can never express my gratitude for Christian Science. Although I had been interested in it for a number of years, occasionally attending lectures and church services, it was not until one near and dear to me had passed on and I prayed for divine help that I was led to accept and earnestly study Christian Science.

My first healing was of tonsillitis, when I had been studying little more than a month. This healing came just from reading our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. Shortly afterwards, while studying the Bible Lesson in the Christian Science Quarterly, I was healed of the necessity of wearing eyeglasses after wearing them since childhood. That occurred ten years ago, and now my eyes are stronger and the vision better than ever before. Many healings have occurred since then, but the one which stands out most clearly is that of a fractured kneecap. Being unable at the time to communicate with a practitioner, I was taken to a hospital, where the knee was set by a surgeon. Finally, when I did have Christian Science treatment, the healing immediately began to manifest itself. After five weeks and a half at the hospital I was taken to the practitioner's home, being practically carried in, as I was not able to stand even with the support of crutches. At the end of one week I was able to discard the crutches for all time. The love and kindness shown me while there helped speed recovery, which from that time was rapid. Eleven and a half weeks after the fall I was back at work, standing as many as twelve hours a day. I am very grateful for this healing, and for the faithful work of the practitioner.

When a dear sister passed on suddenly I was greatly sustained by the understanding of Truth, Life, and Love, knowing that in the realm of Mind there is no separation, for, the Scriptures say, "in him we live, and move, and have our being."
