In Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy...

In Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy (Pref., p. vii) we read, "To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings." This statement describes my experience when I first turned to Christian Science about sixteen years ago.

One afternoon I asked to go home from the office, as I was feeling too ill to stay. My employer could see at a glance that something was seriously wrong. When I was comfortably in bed, I prayed fervently to God, who I knew is everywhere, to keep me in His care.

I had constantly been under the physician's care, and I never expected to leave my bed again. The next thing I was conscious of was that a dear relative was standing at the foot of the bed lovingly saying to me, "God will take care of you." I knew this, but not in the way Christian Science teaches. I was then asked if I would have treatment from a Christian Science practitioner, and in order to please my relative I consented. In a remarkably short time I was entirely healed, and for this healing alone I can never be too grateful to this dear practitioner. The physician had named the condition enteric fever. I felt a joy and peace I had never known before, and I was eager to read Science and Health and to accept the invitation given me by the practitioner to attend church services.
