I wish to express my gratitude for Christian Science

I wish to express my gratitude for Christian Science. One day my mother was taking me to stores to buy some things. When we were in the car, my stomach started to hurt; but I did not tell my mother. Finally I got out of the car and stood up, but I could not stand up straight. So I told my mother. She told me to stay quietly in the car and think about the truths of God and how man expresses Him. I did that when she was gone. Then I sang one of my favorite hymns from the Christian Science Hymnal (No. 264). It begins,

Onward, Christian soldiers,
Marching as to war.
