In the twenty-third Psalm, David sings, "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me." I know that verse is as true today as it was in David's time, because I have seemingly walked "through the valley of the shadow of death," yet, in spite of that, no evil has touched me.

I awoke early one morning with a terrible headache and complete loss of sight. My husband was much alarmed, and before he left for work he called a practitioner, and engaged a nurse to care for me. All through the day, according to the nurse, I seemed to drift off into unconsciousness and to awake only when she called the practitioner. I was told later that the trouble had been uremic poisoning, and both the nurse and the practitioner said they had worked that day against the thought of death. That night my husband took care of me and kept in frequent touch with the practitioner. The next morning my sight was restored, and I was healed.

Some years ago I experienced a severe hemorrhage. At times I was hardly able to see or to breathe, but the first three verses of the third chapter of I John came to me, and I would start to repeat them, although the practitioner who was with me would have to finish them. Part of the second verse, especially, seemed to stand out, "Beloved, now are we the sons of God." It seemed very clear to me that as a child of God, my life was not in blood or body. My improvement after that was rapid.
