One winter I was healed by Christian Science of double pneumonia and pleurisy. Since I am a schoolteacher, the law required me to have a doctor. He pronounced my case very serious and ordered my immediate removal to a hospital or to my home. I chose the latter, and the help of a practitioner was procured. But my condition grew worse, and the doctor gave up hope of saving me. After three weeks of illness, an examination showed that the lungs had practically disappeared, having been consumed by the severity of the illness. The doctor stated that in his forty years of medical practice he had never had a case like mine, and he asked himself what could be keeping me alive.

The doctor's diagnosis frightened me not at all. I declared the truth firmly, knowing that in God's kingdom all things belonging by right to man can never be lost. But the day came when my strength seemed exhausted, and dark shadows engulfed me. Some verses from the one hundred and thirty-ninth Psalm were of great comfort in these moments of struggle: "Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there."
