"The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it" (Prov. 10:22). Christian Science helps to make trust in Truth, God, the basis of our thought. We come to trust God in all our ways—in all the areas of our life.

When I first read the chapter "Atonement and Eucharist" in Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, I had a physical healing. These words stood out (p. 20): "Jesus' history made a new calendar, which we call the Christian era; but he established no ritualistic worship. He knew that men can be baptized, partake of the Eucharist, support the clergy, observe the Sabbath, make long prayers, and yet be sensual and sinful." And further on I saw: "The truth is the centre of all religion. It commands sure entrance into the realm of Love." I said to myself, "Why, that is the truth!" A surge of Truth's healing power swept over me. This was a healing that made me active again after a period of being bedridden. Other healings followed.

Hay fever, strep throat, and ivy poisoning had been my summer companions, and it took some years before my own understanding, together with the treatment of a devoted Christian Science practitioner, freed me from these miseries. But complete healing did come. The same practitioner for many years reflected much love and patience in helping me find my relationship to God as His child.
