More than fifteen years ago...

More than fifteen years ago, while I was grieving over the loss of my mother, a loving neighbor presented the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly to me with so much love and understanding that I was comforted. The subject of the Lesson that week was "God." I did not understand it all, but was filled with gratitude for the message of the closeness of God to all His children. Later I visited a practitioner, who helped me to understand that in the measure I had found our Father-Mother God I had found man's true parent.

Study of our textbook. Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, and practice of the truths contained therein have resulted in many wonderful blessings, blessings which our Leader, Mrs. Eddy, has told us are the natural consequence of obedience to God and His law.

One of these blessings I should like to share. Some time ago, at a Wednesday testimony meeting, a young girl spoke of being permanently healed of burns. The word permanent stayed with me, and I spent considerable time during the following week pondering it together with references from the Concordances.
