I am especially grateful for the healing of a severe burn, which my daughter experienced when she was a small child. There was a pan of candy cooking on the stove, and before I realized what was taking place, the child climbed up on a chair next to the stove, lost her balance and had fallen, her right hand going into the boiling candy. Her screams frightened me for the moment, and my first thought was how to remove the sticky substance which covered the whole hand and a portion of her arm. As soon, however, as I could reach a telephone, a Christian Science practitioner was called, and within a very short time the pain ceased and the child was quiet. I am grateful to add that she did not lose a single night's sleep.

Mrs. Eddy says in Science and Health (p. 392), "Stand porter at the door of thought." It was a real testing time, but I knew that if I stood firm for the truth, the ever-presence of good would be manifested. After one week of treatment the practitioner was dismissed. Mortal mind argued that the child would never use her hand again. The fact that she later studied and played the piano is sufficient evidence that the use of her hand and arm was completely restored.
