At one time our oldest son and I...

At one time our oldest son and I went to visit a relative who was ill with a painful intestinal condition which was considered contagious. Soon afterward it was evident that the boy was having the same difficulty, and he was in such pain that he was unable to lie still.

I took the textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, and sat down beside him, telling him that we were going to find the answer to this problem. I felt that we would do so immediately, and when I opened the textbook, my eyes fell upon Mrs. Eddy's words on page 334, "God never punishes man for doing right, for honest labor, or for deeds of kindness, though they expose him to fatigue, cold, heat, contagion.

This was such a clear, enlightening answer to the problem that I sat quietly for about five minutes just considering the full import of this truth. Suddenly I was startled by my son's saying. "Mother, I am all right now, and I want to go out and play." The healing was instantaneous, and there was no recurrence of the trouble.
