I should like to express my gratitude for Christian Science, which has completely transformed my entire experience. When just becoming interested in Christian Science, I attended a lecture on it; and the message of God's great love for man and of the perfection of being made a tremendous impression on me. I began to realize that God meets our every need.

The next day I met a friend, a Christian Science practitioner, and I told her how this lecture had opened my eyes to the good in store for each one of us who is ready to accept it and how it made me realize how little I had accepted, for I had felt I had "plenty of nothin' "—inadequate supply, few friends, and no real purpose in life. I remarked to my friend as I left her that I must get some cigarettes before I went home and that I would just give anything if I could stop smoking. I am grateful to say that was the last package of cigarettes I purchased! My awakening to the true nature of good healed me of the desire to smoke.

I should also like to tell of a remarkably quick healing of a sprained ankle I experienced about two years ago. Immediately after I hurt the ankle, these words from Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy came to me (p. 424): "Under divine Providence there can be no accidents, since there is no room for imperfection in perfection."
