I should like to express gratitude...

I should like to express gratitude for the wonderful help that Christian Science has been to me.

Three specialists had condemned me to semi-invalidism, saying that I must not exert myself in any way because of heart trouble. At that time my sister-in-law came from Canada to visit us, and she suggested that I read the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. I purchased a copy and began to study it. I shall always remember the joy I felt when I realized that God is ever present and that He has not created sin, sickness, and death. I then called on a Christian Science practitioner for help, which she lovingly gave. Whereas I had not been able to walk any distance, I was soon able to walk miles, and also to do my own housework.

About four years ago I was standing on a box, cleaning windows. Without realizing what I was doing walked off the box and fell heavily with my foot under me, and I heard a bone snap. By clinging to a line of Hymn No. 53 in the Christian Science Hymnal, "His the arm we lean upon," I was able to reach the telephone and ask a Christian Science practitioner for help. She talked to me for a while and said she would help me immediately. I was alone in the house and after some time, feeling rather fearful, I again hopped to the telephone. The practitioner told me to hold on to the truth of being, assuring me that nothing was broken in God's kingdom. A minute or two after I left the telephone there was a peculiar sensation in my foot, and I knew that the healing had taken place. I was able to walk. For these healings and many others, I am truly thankful.
