My heart is filled with gratitude...

My heart is filled with gratitude for Christian Science. It was my privilege to attend Sunday School from the age of five years. Our family was blessed in many ways by this wonderful religion. My sister was healed of diphtheria after a physician had given up hope of her recovery.

Through the application of Christian Science a diamond ring was restored to me. The ring had been lost on a grassy lawn at nighttime, and when all attempts of finding it by flashlight were given up and the understanding of God as light was relied upon the ring was found before daybreak. This demonstration was most inspiring to me and has been a valuable lesson.

When my mother passed on I was overcome with a sense of grief. It was not met at once, but I shall always be grateful for the growth I made during this testing time. When at last the feeling of love for my Father-Mother God flooded my consciousness I knew that I was healed. I realized that I had leaned on my mother's understanding of Truth for my healings, and I was gently led to glorify my Father-Mother God and look to Him for all help. Soon after this I had the glorious experience of class instruction from a teacher who had been a member of Mrs. Eddy's household. A new world opened up for me; there are no words to express my deep gratitude for this step.
