I am sincerely grateful for the joy and peace that are mine through the study of Christian Science.

One blessing for which I have always been most grateful was the healing of a skin disease, which took place when I was but thirteen years old. My mother asked me to study two references: page 275 in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy and the ninety-first Psalm. Each morning before going to school I read these over again. One beautiful spring morning, after several months of study, I realized the truth of the words which I had read so many times. It was as though I were reading them for the first time, for I understood their content. It was an awakening—Truth revealed. I went to school that day rejoicing. All traces of this trouble vanished, and I was free.

An experience which proved to me again God's all-power, all-presence, and omniscience was the healing of a roaring in one of my ears. Each day the roaring, pounding sensation increased, until my whole head seemed to be affected. I would go to bed very weary, and awaken unrefreshed. I finally asked for Christian Science treatment. After several days the condition was improved, and I felt that I could carry on, knowing the truth for myself. However, the inharmonious condition was not completely healed. At this time two sisters, whom I had not seen for some time, came to visit us. One sister exclaimed that I was much too thin—that hardly knew me. The conversation dwelt on this subject, and I know now that I should have done better protective work. However, I did know that no harm was intended, and that weight did not necessarily mean an abundance of good, but that good was spiritual. After their departure, I became so weak I could hardly stand. That night I entertained an almost overwhelming sense of weariness and fever; even the suggestion of death tried to present itself. I am grateful that my husband made me declare all the truth I knew aloud, and he in turn held to the allness and the oneness of God, the only power. The next morning, when I awakened, I realized I was healed. Words cannot express the peace I experienced. For the first time in months all was still and calm. The pounding in my ear and head had ceased. The great joy we receive when we experience such definite proof of God's omnipotent care, is a joy that none can take away. I have learned, too, that the truth emanating from the one divine, infinite source, can never be reversed.
