My testimony is really long overdue

My testimony is really long overdue. Many years ago I witnessed a healing while visiting a cousin in New York. A Christian Science practitioner had come from another state to talk with her brother, who had not been able to walk or straighten out his legs for a year and a half, and in two days he walked across the room.

During the practitioner's visit I was healed of constipation. She gave me this statement from Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy to consider, " 'There is no death, no inaction, diseased action, overaction, nor reaction.'" [The entire passage reads (pp. 427-428): "The dream of death must be mastered by Mind here or hereafter. Thought will waken from its own material declaration, 'I am dead,' to catch this trumpet-word of Truth, 'There is no death, no inaction, diseased action, overaction, nor reaction.'"]

When I was a young woman, my mother was told by specialists that I had only part of one lung left, and I was called the invalid of the family. Although I did not continue with medical care after my initial healing, I did not study Christian Science until after my husband's healing of hemorrhaging ulcers. He was healed in Christian Science after five doctors in consultation had given him up. We had many healing proofs of the truths of Christian Science, and eventually my health was completely restored. I have been able to lead an active life caring for my family, and have served as church organist for over forty years.
