God is always blessing us, and this has been proved to me in my own experience, for His law has operated to unfold much good to me. He has given me the care of a lovely daughter, who has always responded quickly to work done for her, and whose instruction in Sunday school, together with her study, has given her a clear understanding of spiritual law, which she uses faithfully in schoolwork and in social life.

Upon awakening one morning, I realized that I could not move. Feeling sure that I could demonstrate my dominion over this, I allowed my family to go about their duties. Later I found that I could raise myself by pulling on the head of the bed. From this position I worked myself out of the bed and by holding to the chair, I got to the telephone. Why I was not instantly healed is shown by my last statement to the practitioner, "I don't know how I shall get back to bed." I expected to go back! The practitioner lovingly worked and I was comfortable. Later I received a message that my mother had passed on. I was helped through this sorrow and was able to do the things that were necessary. The love expressed to me by church members will always be an inspiration to me. For this I am very grateful.

My knee presented a very unusual picture of swelling and discoloration. I expressed many fears concerning it to the practitioner, but was always comforted by his affirmations of the truth. Never did he falter, but constantly assured me that Truth and Love were sustaining me; that all was well and I could prove it. One day I was standing in the kitchen when suddenly something snapped in my back. It was so sudden, and startled me so much, that I screamed and left the room and lay down for a few minutes. Wonderful relief was brought about by whatever had taken place. I was better, but was not yet able to walk much. Then a call came for me to do some work which I needed to do, and I decided that with help I could do it. After that I began to assert my dominion and the physical condition began to disappear. But for the power of Truth expressed by the practitioner in loving patience, I feel that I should have remained useless and unable to control my body.
