I should like with all my heart to give thanks for the blessings which I have been privileged to experience through Christian Science. At one time, in the most beautiful period of my life, when I imagined that I was happy, everything that I thought I could call my own slipped away from me. Not only that—I also lost my trust in God. In this time of despair, divine Love found me. It did not leave me where it found me, but drew me to itself in pure loving-kindness. When my husband was transferred to Berlin at that time, I became acquainted with Christian Science through friends. It was possible for me to buy the textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. Today this book, the German Edition of the Herald, and the Christian Science Quarterly are indispensable to me.

I clung to the infinite God, the creator who is Love, that I might study further and learn to understand and give to others. Yet often I could not free myself from error. At a Wednesday evening testimony meeting when I could not be quite at peace, the Scriptural words came to my thought, "Teach me thy way, O Lord; I will walk in thy truth." That same evening I talked with a practitioner. She gave me these words to take with me: "Lord, Thy will be done." Later I visited the practitioner, and she lovingly helped me to apprehend through Christian Science the ever-operative divine law. Thus I was freed of many false characteristics which do not belong to God's child; and I was also healed of grippe, a knee trouble, and lumbago that had troubled me for years. The most glorious thing I was privileged to experience was that my husband, too, had the help of a practitioner and could see God as the loving Father and creator, who never disappoints us, if we look to Him in the firm trust that He is Love.
