One night as I bent over to pick...

One night as I bent over to pick up some of my son's toys I heard something snap in my back, and I could not straighten up. I managed to get to the telephone to call a friend who is a Christian Scientist. During our conversation, she uncovered the unhappy thoughts I was entertaining about my living quarters. I longed to move to a larger place in another section of the city, but my husband and I were not able financially to do so.

As this friend and I continued talking, it gradually dawned on me that the real, spiritual man lives in divine Mind and that no matter where one dwells humanly, his real home is spiritual and permanent. Very soon after this I was able to straighten up and to walk in a normal manner. The glow of peace and contentment that came to me while I was talking with my friend stayed with me long after the physical healing was manifested. But I knew I still had prayerful work to do.

From the time I was first married, I had been harboring a great feeling of resentment toward one of my husband's relatives. Try as I might to eliminate from my thinking the erroneous concept of man I had accepted, I still became involved in angry scenes. I continued to pray every day and to do some extra studying, which I knew would eventually bring about a healing.
