With a grateful heart I testify to some healings I have been privileged to experience as a student of Christian Science. A few years ago very painful swellings appeared on my left leg, and in spite of my declaration of the truth, they prevented me from sleeping the next night. Through the treatment of a practitioner upon whom I called for help, the pain vanished and I was able to sleep again. Unfortunately, however, the error asserted itself again the next day in a greater degree and with more severe pain. The material evidence seemed to be severe blood poisoning, for the leg had turned black; and I was entertaining thoughts of great fear, thereby obstructing the path for the truth.

Through the practitioner's loving explanation that there is no fear in Love and that man ever reflects perfect Principle, our Father-Mother God, and through her further mental work, I was so uplifted that I was able to lay aside the thoughts of fear. Then there was rapid progress, and after three days all symptoms had disappeared. I was free and happy and unable to understand my having had thoughts of death a few days before. On the evening of the third day I was able to attend the Wednesday evening testimony meeting and to thank divine Love for this beautiful healing.

In even greater measure I had opportunity to prove the power of God at the time of an accident. Unmindful of our dear Leader's admonition to protect oneself daily, I sustained a double fracture of an arm. The pain was so severe that I could not grasp any thoughts of Truth; all I could do was to prevent friends from calling a doctor. A practitioner was summoned at once, and in addition to her mental work she wrapped the arm in a cloth to keep me from looking at it, since its appearance was arousing in me a great sense of fear. Today, as I look back upon this experience, it still seems wonderful to me how I had the opportunity of finding that the healing of the arm progressed proportionately as my thought changed. The fact that in this case a healing took place in my consciousness, I owe primarily to the untiring, selfless co-operation of the practitioner, who lovingly persisted in destroying thoughts of fear and replacing them with thoughts of Truth, until I recognized that I was God's perfect child.
