My gratitude to God for Christ Jesus...

My gratitude to God for Christ Jesus, who taught the true way of life, and for Mrs. Eddy, who made possible the blessings of Christian Science, cannot be measured. It would be impossible to enumerate the many experiences I have had in which the realization of God's ever-presence healed me of physical distress. I have known His protective power in times of accident and when driving my car through a tornado, through a dense fog, and over icy and snowy roads.

While summering on a farm in New England, I was awakened at midnight by a severe storm. Realizing that the windows in an adjoining room were open and that I was the sole occupant in that part of the house, I arose and lighted a candle, since there was no electricity in my room. As I crossed the room I was startled to see a bright light reflected upon the wall in front of me. I turned to find that the curtains had blown into the candle flame and were ablaze.

Distressing thoughts were replaced immediately by the acknowledgment of God's ever-presence and power to save. Angel messages came, telling me how to proceed, and they were obeyed in the order they came: the door was closed to prevent the smoke from proceeding to the rest of the house, the curtains were pulled down and forced under the rug, the sparks which had blown onto the rug were put out, and water in a glass on a nearby stand was applied to the burning curtain rod. I was completely unconscious of fear or of doing anything of myself.
