It has been eighteen years since my last testimony appeared in The Christian Science Journal. In the meantime I have retired and have found no end of wonders in the practical nature of the wonderful truth of Christian Science.

Some ten years ago I had three instances of what appeared to be heart attacks. I never went to a doctor to find out what they were. I told no one about the illness, not even my wife. The first time, I seemed to be passing on. I held to spiritual facts, knowing that man isn't going anywhere, as he lives in God; he is at this very moment a child of God, expressing all the qualities of God. Being His child, I must express health as God gives it. My movement, activities, and my expression of all-powerful Mind are what I had to recognize. I am sure I never prayed more fervently to see my perfect spiritual selfhood. It was only minutes before I began to feel God's presence, and in no time all fear was gone and I felt well. However, I had two more attacks; each one brought me to my knees; each one made me more humble. Each time my understanding of God's allness grew stronger. It has been over ten years now, and I have had no return of this ailment. How grateful I have been for Christian Science; it is so easy to apply—so natural to turn to God for healing. Paul puts it clearly (Acts 17:28): "For in him we live, and move, and have our being."
