Many faulty traits of character...

Many faulty traits of character have been corrected in my life, and for this I am grateful. I have had broken bones set without the aid of a doctor. They knit perfectly. I also had a healing of a severe case of blood poisoning. These healings came about by my complete reliance on God.

For several days I had been uncomfortable because of constipation. Suddenly at bedtime the condition righted itself after I had read the Lesson-Sermon from the Christian Science Quarterly. Then I remembered reading from the Sentinel an editorial in which a helpful passage was quoted from "Miscellaneous Writings" by Mrs. Eddy. I pondered the quotation carefully, and I recalled saying aloud, "I see that." I am sure that at that moment I was healed, but it was not revealed to me until some hours later.

More recently I was awakened in the middle of the night with the symptoms of a head cold. Quickly I knew that "man is not matter; he is not made up of brain, blood, bones, and other material elements" (Science and Health, p. 475). I also held to "the scientific statement of being" (ibid., p. 468), in which is included the sentence, "Spirit is God, and man is His image and likeness"; then all symptoms vanished.
