I should like to express my gratitude...

I should like to express my gratitude for the wonderful works of God. I had the joy of learning of God in the Christian Science Sunday School, and now I continue to have the daily opportunity to expand this vision of God's glory through studying the literature, including the Lesson-Sermons in the Christian Science Quarterly. My thought is filled with the security and peace of God's presence.

Having had Christian Science since I can remember, I hardly realized the wonderful protection I had always received. However, it was brought home rather forcibly to me in an experience I had two or three years ago. While I was driving, a car stopped in front of me too suddenly for me to put on the brakes and avoid hitting it. So I turned across the highway, and an oncoming truck hit my car broadside. The instant I saw what was happening the thought came that there are no accidents in divine Mind, as Mrs. Eddy teaches. This thought did not leave me for a minute. The car spun around and went into a gas station, but I felt sure of perfect safety. When I got out of my car a crowd gathered and questioned whether or not I was all right. During the entire proceedings I knew nothing but harmony. There was no injury to anyone, and I was provided transportation to my destination. My car, to the amazement of many, was back in fine running condition in a week or so, and the insurance arrangements were most congenially handled. The seriousness of what mortal mind claimed could have happened in this situation did not even occur to me.

I know that the only true way I can express my gratitude for the wonderful knowledge of God as Life is to stay close to Him and live the truth daily—and what a joy it is! I hope that I may help others to find this truth and to be helped as I have been helped by Sunday School teachers, practitioners, and friends. —(Mrs.) Jean Medbery Richards, Santa Monica, California.
