As a child I attended the Christian Science Sunday School,...

As a child I attended the Christian Science Sunday School, but later, in the exuberance of youth, I was carried away by material pleasures. Soon I learned that this frail rod could bring only suffering. I was knocked down by an automobile while boarding a street car. My left hand and the socket of the little finger were broken; in fact, both my hands were badly injured. The car wheels went across my back and diagonally across my abdomen; the dirt from the street was ground into my cheek. The driver of the car took me to the hospital; but though the material senses testified that I was unconscious, I knew what was going on about me. I heard that the condition was critical, but kept saying, sometimes audibly, "I am not hurt." My family was notified and a practitioner called, and in five days I got up with assistance, bathed, and was removed to my home. On account of a large blood clot, for five days it was not discovered that my left hand was broken. An X-ray showed the bones to be knitting. The doctor stated that I should be crippled for life. Under the care of a practitioner and a Christian Science friend I was able to return to my work in three weeks, a better woman than before the experience. The healing was not complete until other errors were uncovered and completely erased from my thought. My hands were then more agile and accomplished better and finer things. The claim of shock and fear was entirely healed as I clung to the following Bible statements: "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love."

Never from that day did I feel that I could get along without Christian Science; but it was not until several years later that I was willing to give up everything and devote every minute possible to its study. I am grateful for the protection that Christian Science brings us continually. And even though we wander through the wilderness in search of material pleasures, thinking to find happiness, we are lovingly drawn back to the "Father of lights, with whom is no variableness."
