I should like to express gratitude...

I should like to express gratitude for Christian Science, which was introduced to me over twenty years ago by a beloved friend of my mother. This friend was a woman of some means, and as I grew up she gave me many gifts; but the greatest gift, something that money could not buy, was the introduction to Science.

My first healing was that of muscle tension in my neck and shoulders. This condition did not yield readily, and I spent almost a year in study, finding healing finally through a lecture which I attended. The lecturer stated that as Christian Scientists we were working for the glory of God. This awakened me to the fact that I had been working to show what I could do instead of knowing that God was being glorified. It was as though a weight had dropped from my shoulders. For a while the discomfort tried to return; but I would declare that I was working for the glory of God, and the condition finally vanished completely.
