For many years I have depended...

For many years I have depended solely on Christian Science for help in every need. It has not always been easy, but through all my varied experiences I have gained an understanding of Truth that can never be taken from me. There have been many healings in the past forty years, for which I am especially grateful.

During a so-called epidemic of influenza my sister's three children were taken ill; one of them was delirious. My sister was also ill and barely able to be on her feet. Each day I left my two children to go to my sister's home to help her. One day she sent me to a relative's home to telephone to a practitioner in a neighboring town to ask for help in Christian Science. She listened to my story and then said, "Go home and tell your sister that there is no epidemic."

I walked slowly back to the house, and with each step I kept saying, "How could she say such a thing!" Either I had not made myself clear, I thought, or she had not understood how serious the situation was in our town. Just before I reached my sister's home the answer came: Have you not been reading that God is infinite? Then good must be infinite. So, if there were an epidemic, it would be an epidemic of good. God's child cannot be exposed to anything but good and thus cannot experience anything but good. The situation began to clear up, and soon both the children and my sister were completely healed. In the years since then, this lesson has been a very helpful one to me.
