After I was married I lived in a semitropical area

After I was married I lived in a semitropical area. We swam frequently and enjoyed participating in other water sports. For many months I suffered from infected ears, which gave me a great deal of pain. I began to understand that I needed to comprehend what real health is. In Science and Health Mrs. Eddy says (p. 373): "Establish the scientific sense of health, and you relieve the oppressed organ. The inflammation, decomposition, or deposit will abate, and the disabled organ will resume its healthy functions." This was exactly what happened to me, and the healing was permanent.

As a youngster these verses from the ninety-first Psalm comforted me and promised guidance and protection (vv. 11, 12): "For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone." I felt that the presence of God's angels meant powerful, uplifting, and reassuring thoughts that could sustain me in any situation. The Bible teaches and Christian Science shows us how to prove that God's children are always completely protected by His law. There is no other mind to challenge divine Mind's loving mandate of good for His children.
