In the first two lines of the Preface to Science and Health are these words: "To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings." I realize their import more and more each day. Christian Science was presented to me by a dear friend about five years ago. Since that time we have indeed been blessed. It is with deep gratitude to God that I now testify to what it has done. At the time of hearing of Christian Science I was in normal health; but a year later I needed its help very much for the overcoming of rheumatoid arthritis. I was helpless and bowed together, and could neither eat nor sleep. My limbs were hard and swollen, and almost twice their normal size, and I experienced continual and intense suffering.
All my people, including my husband, were antagonistic toward what they believed Christian Science to be, and all rained down abuse upon it. I did not condemn them in any way for their state of thinking, but trusted that in time, when they really knew what its teaching is, they might think more kindly of it. Finally I asked them to leave me quite alone, as I knew I should get along better. From the beginning I knew I was going to take an honest and radical stand for Christian Science. I studied the Lesson-Sermon from the Christian Science Quarterly each day, and read other Science literature which my friend used to leave with me, but still I did not seem to make any headway. I did not despair, however; I knew that Christian Science is true and that I should be healed. At this stage a practitioner was called in, and in a very short while I was healed. Needless to say, this healing brought great joy to all. We have had other proofs that this blessed truth does indeed heal.
