How many times have I spoken...

How many times have I spoken or thought of my gratitude for Christian Science? Surely the number is in the thousands, but not until a loving friend asked if I had ever written a testimony for the periodicals did I realize that a tinge of selfishness called procrastination had to be reckoned with.

For over twenty-five years I have relied solely on Christian Science for my well-being. My schoolwork was made easy, my college career was made possible, my marriage to a Christian Scientist was culminated, my protection in the Navy was constant, and my success and happiness are continual through the study of Christian Science.

I could fill the testimony section with my own experiences, but the one which has always seemed most outstanding to me occurred while I was attending college. To defray expenses, I served as chauffeur daily for a doctor. One day I bruised my foot while playing basketball and had to ask a friend to work for me. The following day my foot was infected and became twice its normal size. I painfully made my way into the city to see a Christian Science practitioner and was comforted immeasurably, but the throbbing continued. I made good use of the Reading Room most of that day and held on to the truths I knew would free me, but little progress was evident by bedtime.
