Having had the joy of knowing...

Having had the joy of knowing Christian Science all my life, I am truly grateful for Christ Jesus and for Mrs. Eddy, who gave us this demonstrable religion. The truths of God and man which were lovingly taught me in Sunday School have been a constant guide. There have been healings of sickness; but the understanding of Christian Science has primarily been a source of protection in my experience.

I should like to express gratitude at this time for the healing of sorrow when a dear one passed on. The healing was so quick that there was actually no grief to be overcome, although we had been very close companions, and I had always thought that life without her presence would be empty.

My earnest study of Mrs. Eddy's writings established in my thought the true concept of man as a perfect child of God. The understanding that I gained through this study freed me from the sense of separation, for I was able to recognize the dear one's true being as eternal. This experience was an important stepping-stone for me, and in the years since then I have gratefully recalled it when the belief of death has come to my attention.
