It has always been my sincere...

It has always been my sincere desire to express gratitude to God through the periodicals for the help I have derived from the study and application of Christian Science, and from practitioners and friends when I have called upon them.

One of the outstanding healings in my early study was that of influenza. I was teaching school at that time, and the people with whom I roomed and boarded were not interested in Christian Science. Most of them were suffering from influenza, were bedfast, and had a physician attending them. One night, after retiring, I began to have the symptoms of this difficulty. I knew that if I put the light on and began to study, someone would be likely to come in to ask what was the matter and offer material aid. This I earnestly desired to avoid, so I began to do mental work and to repeat "the scientific statement of being," as found on page 468 of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. This alleviated my suffering, as it has done many times. I worked to know the truth about man as God's image and likeness, also keeping in mind verse 10 of the ninety-first Psalm, which says, "There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling." The next morning I arose with not a vestige of the trouble and went to school, where I taught my classes as usual.

More recently I was protected from what could have been a serious accident when a rubber glove caught in an electric motor drill at my work in an aircraft factory. It was some moments before the assistant foreman saw the situation and came where he could release the motor. I had asked a woman not far from me to do this, but because of the noise she had not understood my request. The truth of "the scientific statement of being" again protected me, together with the thought that no accidents can occur in divine Mind. To the surprise of those about me my finger was in normal condition when the glove was removed.
