For years Christian Science has been the greatest blessing...

For years Christian Science has been the greatest blessing that has ever come into my life, and I have a sincere desire to tell something of its great healing power. In the Manual of The Mother Church (Art. XVII, Sect. 2) Mrs. Eddy has said: "Gratitude and love should abide in every heart each day of all the years. Those sacred words of our beloved Master, 'Let the dead bury their dead,' and 'Follow thou me,' appeal to daily Christian endeavors for the living whereby to exemplify our risen Lord."

When Christian Science first came into our home, through an interested friend, it was the means of healing my wife of a serious ailment, and of later healing our young son of fever when he seemed to be passing on. He was also healed of chronic ear trouble when he was in constant pain. As Christian Science became our only physician, I gradually grew interested in it and was healed of the tobacco habit of many years' standing. In time the desire for liquor was completely overcome, pneumonia was healed in a few days, my business relations and work became more harmonious and successful, and ills too numerous to mention were also healed.

One healing occurred about ten years ago, while I was riding with some companions in a new automobile. One of the tires was soft, and as we struck some loose gravel, the car overturned twice. My first thought was not of a doctor but of Christian Science help. With the others I was taken to a hospital, and my case was pronounced beyond help, as the skull was fractured, two vertebrae in the spine were dislocated, the collar bone was broken and also dislocated, and there was no action of the bowels for nine days. The doctor wanted to put my back in a cast. A Christian Science practitioner was called, and in two days I was released from the hospital with no further care from the doctors. God truly governed all the way, and in my heart was a prayer of thanksgiving, for in about five weeks I was able to be out again, and in just six weeks I went to church.
