"Bless the Lord, O my soul, and...

"Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits; who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases" (Ps. 103: 2, 3). When I began to read Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy my eyes were badly inflamed because of a serious infection on my face. I read continually day and night until I was healed. A Christian Science practitioner treated me, and while she was with me I felt the swelling go down, although there was no outward drainage. During this time, even though I was alone without means in a foreign country, I was seldom afraid, because of my having found Christian Science, which was more interesting than anything else that had ever come into my life.

At that time there was no one among my friends whom I could trust to come to me in my hour of need, except one Christian Scientist. who sang with me in the same cabaret. What a contrast to my life now, for I am blessed with many loyal friends in different parts of the world. If Christian Science had done nothing for me but teach me to love, understand, and forgive others, I would feel enriched beyond measure. However, as my thoughts have changed, my circumstances also have changed, as well as my occupation and the kind of people I meet.

Before finding Christian Science, even when I was laughing and singing, I used to feel lonely and puzzled. Life seemed to me an enigma, and at times a nightmare. But fears, daydreaming, and muddled thinking caused by old theological beliefs and false education have given place to alertness, activity, confidence, and joy, which increase with the years as I endeavor to put Christian Science into practice. Now most of my moments are filled with a deep gratitude for the sure knowledge that Life is God and that God is Love. After my first healing I returned to my own country and engaged in more satisfactory work, and recently I married another student of Christian Science.
