On page 164 of "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" we read, "What is gratitude but a powerful camera obscura, a thing focusing light where love, memory, and all within the human heart is present to manifest light." As I count the many blessings that have come to me and mine during the past sixteen years from the study and application of Christian Science, more gratitude than words can express, wells up within me. And what a balm is gratitude!

I should like to state that we have found God in our home through this study and application of the truth and have felt His healing touch. With the help of a practitioner, scarlet fever, whooping cough, influenza, measles, and erysipelas have been healed instantaneously. I was healed of tuberculosis through reading Science and Health after a physician had treated me for two years, and had said he did not want to take any more of my money, as he could do no more for me. He begged me to leave my family and go east to rest for a period of six months. Soon after this Christian Science was presented to me for my daughter, who at that time had been operated upon for a serious deformity caused by infantile paralysis several years before. I accepted it, and not only was she greatly improved and her limb both lengthened and developed, but I was entirely freed from the tubercular condition. Through recognizing God's allness we were enabled to deny error's seeming reality and thus free ourselves from its baneful influence.
