With humility and a great sense of wonder at the power of God,...

With humility and a great sense of wonder at the power of God, "who healeth all thy diseases"(Ps. 103:3), I would like to tell of a healing I experienced two years ago while vacationing in Florida.

My sister-in-law and I had met for two weeks of rest, study, and companionship away from our responsibilities in different distant cities. The first day there we dressed for bathing, walked to the beach, and there applied suntan lotion with the thought of more quickly acquiring a tan. But because of cloudy skies we returned to the apartment in less than half an hour. That night my skin was quite red and uncomfortable. The next morning it was most evident that we must contact both a practitioner and a Christian Science nurse. A deep, poisonous burn covered two-thirds of my body.

I shall never forget the face of the nurse when she came that first day. The mirror had told me that I looked rather frightful. No one would have recognized me. I found no fear, no alarm, no disturbance in her glance. Seeing this steady, calm, loving gaze eased my fear. Mrs. Eddy's words came to me, "But why should we stand aghast at nothingness?"(Science and Health, p. 563.)
