My gratitude to God for His constant love and goodness is boundless. Many healings have occurred when I have applied the truths of Christian Science.

One recent healing was of a severe sore throat. Although I prayed to see the falsity of the malady and read and studied from Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, I found no relief. One evening my husband, who is also a student of Christian Science, read the following words from Science and Health: "what is termed matter cannot be sick." The entire sentence reads (p. 417), "Maintain the facts of Christian Science,—that Spirit is God, and therefore cannot be sick; that what is termed matter cannot be sick; that all causation is Mind, acting through spiritual law." I thought about this through the evening and realized that not even what claimed to be matter could be sick because there is no sickness. What claimed to be mortal mind could not create sickness because God is the only creator. The healing began then, and each day I gained more freedom. Within a few days I was completely freed from the sore throat.

Another healing was of blisters on my arms that were painful. An open wound also appeared. I had accepted the belief that a scratch by a kitten had become infected and I was suffering from this infection. The discomfort at night awakened me to deny the false evidence and not to give in to mortal mind.
