"Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases" (Ps. 103:2,3). When I think of all the blessings and benefits I have received and of the joyous and uplifting sense of God's dear love and presence I have felt, I am humbly grateful.

A number of years ago I had a severe heart attack. When an ambulance called by my husband, who is not a Christian Scientist, arrived to take me to a hospital, I refused to go. Instead I asked for my copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy and started reading intermittently while I was lying on my back. I soon was able to sit up, and I felt much better. I had two more attacks sometime later. As a result of the last one I was steadily growing weaker. In the meantime I had asked for treatment from a practitioner.

One day while I was struggling to remain conscious, I kept repeating, "God is my Life," and I entertained the thought that God is all-powerful. By clinging to these facts and realizing some understanding of them, I retained my sense of life and soon had my freedom. I gradually gained strength until I was able to resume m household duties, and I have had no recurrence of the condition.
