Since the appearance of my last testimony in the January 1972 issue of The Christian Science Journal, there have been many more proofs of God's constant care.

Many years ago when a friend introduced me to the study of Christian Science, I knew nothing of its pricelessness. However, it was not long until I began to realize that this Science truly is the "pearl of great price" spoken of in the Bible. Humbly I accepted my friend's encouragement, feeling no prejudice to create doubts as to the validity of Mrs. Eddy's words, no mental reservations, but only open, receptive thought, seeking to understand. From then on, little by little, a transformation began in all that concerned me. First, anemia, which had plagued me all my life, completely disappeared. Chronic constipation was also healed. Now, many years later, with the measure of spiritual understanding I have gained, I know that whatever the need, I have the perfect remedy always at hand—Divine Science. It is the same remedy used by Christ Jesus and, centuries later, revealed by Mrs. Eddy in this wonderful religion, Christian Science, showing us a perfect way of healing all manner of difficulties.

After our home was broken into, I gradually overcame a great amount of fear. A thorough study of the Bible Lesson in the Christian Science Quarterly in the morning and again before retiring for the night proved very helpful. I also read and pondered the Lord's Prayer, with its spiritual interpretation given by Mrs. Eddy in Science and Health (see pp. 16-17),
and this Psalm (4:8): "I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety." I was increasingly able to relinquish fear until the nights were free of all uneasiness.
