Because of severe arthritis in my shoulder I suffered great pain as well as disuse of my left arm. Treatment was requested of a Christian Science practitioner, and every day she helped me to fill my thought with Life, Truth, and Love. Gradually I came to see the falsity of burdening responsibilities and of the belief that man lives in matter. When I realized that I had no burden to carry on my shoulders and that all I had to do was to reflect God, my healing came. I learned, that to reflect God is a fulltime duty, but a joyous one.

During this period the practitioner would place my hands on the piano and assure me that I could play. She dwelt particularly on gratitude, encouraging me to sing Hymns No. 3 and 207 (Christian Science Hymnal). Remembering Christ Jesus' words (Matt. 11:30), "My yoke is easy, and my burden is light," I am sure I shall never feel heavily burdened again.
