The love that is explained and...

The love that is explained and taught in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy appealed to me from the first time I read this textbook. Two statements in it stood out to me. One was (p. 254), "When we wait patiently on God and seek Truth righteously, He directs our path." The other was (p. 492): "Being is holiness, harmony, immortality. It is already proved that a knowledge of this, even in small degree, will uplift the physical and moral standard of mortals, will increase longevity, will purify and elevate character."

The sentence, "Being is holiness, harmony, immortality," was easy to memorize, and I repeated it many times a day. The promise which follows it encouraged me to think that, even though I didn't understand Science very much at first, even a little knowledge of God would help me. These truths gave me needed strength and courage in working out inharmonious family relationships.

After starting the earnest study of Science, I discovered I was free from tonsillitis. I had suffered all seasons of the year form this since early childhood. I had been told by company physicians where I worked that I would have to have my tonsils removed if I continued in my employment. This removal proved to be unnecessary. I do not know when the healing took place, but each day I tried to gain a purer concept of the perfect man.
