The blessings which have come...

The blessings which have come to me through the study of Christian Science are so numerous I cannot begin to count them.

I should like to tell of the healing of a painful back condition of over ten years' standing. I had Christian Science treatment several times and tried to help myself, but the condition did not improve. Finally my husband, who is not a Christian Scientist, insisted on my having an X ray of my back and a medical examination. The X-ray report showed a form of arthritis of the spine, for which the doctor said there was no cure. Again I called for Christian Science help.

This time the treatment was given by a practitioner eleven thousand miles away, since there were no practitioners in the country where I was then living. I could feel the inspiration and spiritual uplift from the practitioner's treatments, but the condition of the back remained the same. After about three months the thought came to me that since I felt so divinely inspired and enlightened by the wonderful work of the practitioner, I could carry on with treatment for myself. I knew that every Christian Science treatment I had ever been given continued to bless me in the present time, and I began by expressing sincere gratitude to God for His omnipresence.
