I wish to express my gratitude...

I wish to express my gratitude for a healing of loneliness which I experienced during my first visit to America five years ago.

This loneliness started when I went to school in France, where I then lived, and it became worse after my father passed on. My religion separated me from other girls, for I was a Protestant. Years later, when I began the study of Christian Science, I was still lonely and believed this condition to be some sort of an artistic characteristic until I awoke to the fact that whatever comes from God has no feeling of sadness or self-pity connected with it. I was making progress, and many times I thought the healing had come; but on looking back I realize that I was still expecting it in some material circumstance, such as change of place, home, or surroundings.

When I came to this country it was my great privilege to visit a pupil of Mrs. Eddy's. She explained to me that one cannot be alone in Love and that if I would turn my thoughts to an impersonal sense of love I would never feel alone. I knew when I left her house that I was healed. Later I left America and went back to my home in France, where for six months I lived in the same house as before. The surroundings and material circumstances were unchanged, but there was no sense of loneliness. The healing has remained permanent.
