So much good has come to me...

So much good has come to me and mine since I took up the study of Christian Science, that to enumerate it all would take pages. I have so much for which to be grateful, not only in the physical and financial healings which have come to us, but in the overcoming of undesirable traits of character.

When I first became interested in Christian Science, I was in the habit of smoking two packages of cigarettes a day. However, I was completely healed after being given the privilege of visiting The Mother Church in Boston, and other buildings connected with the movement, through the generosity of loving friends. For days after I returned home I could think of nothing but the beauty of the buildings and the magnitude of Mrs. Eddy's generosity in sharing with all her marvelous discovery. Then I thought: "What am I giving to Science for all the blessings I have received? Certainly all the contributions I give in the way of money can never be so much as what I have received." Then I questioned myself as to what seemed the hardest to give up, and like a flash the answer came—smoking. I knew that it truly was not part of me and that I could not be handled by this false belief. From that day to this I have never smoked, nor had the desire to do so. I am sure that gratitude enabled me to make this demonstration.

Another healing that proved to me the power of Love also took place early in my study of Science. My little daughter had spent several weeks at a summer camp. Upon returning home she noticed a swelling on her thigh which resembled an insect bite. After she had been home a few days the thigh began to pain her severely, and finally took on a very angry aspect.
