Three years ago it was my privilege...

Three years ago it was my privilege to experience through the application of Christian Science a healing of an injury which I believe would otherwise have required surgery. I severed the tendons at the back of my heel. Being afraid, I rang up my teacher in Christian Science for help, which was graciously given through prayer. The bleeding stopped at once, and in four days I was able to walk on the foot.

However, I still favored it until one day when I was some distance from the house and the telephone rang. I felt I could not reach it before it stopped ringing. Immediately the thought came: "Run. You can, you know." I did run. The healing then came quickly and completely.

Within the last few years God's loving protection was experienced when one of my hands was caught in the electric wringer of a washing machine. The hand went in to a point over the knuckles, just missing the thumb. The pain was intense; so until the pain eased I held steadfastly to the spiritual truths we are taught in Christian Science. Then I finished the washing.
