It is with deep and sincere gratitude that I write this testimony

It is with deep and sincere gratitude that I write this testimony. I became deaf in one ear. I earnestly tried to heal myself of this limitation. One thought that came to me was from the book of Proverbs (20: 12): "The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the Lord hath made even both of them." Another was from Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy (p. 585): "Ears. Not organs of the so-called corporeal senses, but spiritual understanding." As I prayed and worked with these two statements, the healing came. It was a year before I was free. I often felt discouraged, but always some uplifting angel message came to me to inspire my thought. I learned that man's faculties are not at the mercy of material sense or condition. I do not know just when the healing came, but suddenly it seemed as though people were shouting.

Another healing I would like to share was the healing of a condition of the eyes. One morning I appeared not to be able to see clearly. I tried to read the Christian Science Quarterly Lesson-Sermon but was unable to focus. I then telephoned a Christian Science practitioner for help to support my own prayers. Treatment was promptly given. So effective was the treatment that in a matter of minutes I could joyfully exclaim, "I can see!" And with great joy and gratitude I went on studying the lesson.
