At the birth of our daughter...

At the birth of our daughter, she bore every evidence of being what is called a blue baby. The doctor and nurse in attendance did what they could to induce body warmth and normal heart activity, but with no success whatever. Several hours later the nurse came to me, saying that the baby was much worse and that she feared for her life.

I had no fear and asked the nurse to telephone the Christian Science practitioner who had been helping me. He began prayerful work at once. Not more than twenty minutes later the child's breathing, for the first time, became quiet, and she fell asleep. She slept through the night, and when the doctor came the following morning he found her rosy pink, warm, and normal in every respect. There was not the slightest indication of heart trouble throughout her vigorously active childhood or later when she excelled in swimming and dancing.

Another healing that inspires and uplifts my thought every time I recall it is the complete healing of grief and of a feeling of loss and separation when my husband passed on. In this experience the truth remained with me that in reality nothing was happening or could happen but the unfoldment of Truth and Love. I was borne as if on wings over any sense of shock and emotional upset, and I moved in peace and calm.
