It is with the deepest gratitude...

It is with the deepest gratitude that I give this testimony, hoping that it may encourage others. Christian Science came to me fourteen years ago when I was in great need of God. Through prayer I was led to a house where a Sentinel, was given me to read, and I knew instantly it contained that for which I was seeking. After suffering severely from neuritis and wearing a medicated cotton wool jacket for eight years, I was told by a specialist that no more could be done for me. However, complete freedom was realized through Christian Science.

Recently I experienced another very convincing proof of the ever-availability of divine Love. In the early spring of 1944, after a very busy day, I walked in my sleep, and in the darkness fell down a flight of stairs. The pain was so severe that I had great difficulty in getting back to bed. My husband telephoned a practitioner, who came immediately. It was evident that the injury was severe, and I decided to call a doctor for an examination. On his advice I was removed to a hospital for an X ray. The next day I was told this showed a fractured vertebra, and the specialist who was called advised my immediate removal to an orthopedic hospital for a plaster cast. So much fear was expressed for my future that it seemed difficult for me to take my stand. I knew in my heart that Christian Science had never failed me, but I felt that I must have a little more time to think it all out clearly.

The Christian Science practitioner came to see me that day and quoted helpful passages from the Bible and Science and Health. She also reminded me that I could never be separated from God, who is my Life; also, that my real being, as God's idea, is indivisible in Truth and Love. I held fast to these thoughts of Truth, and that night I was mentally at peace.
