Several months ago I developed a fear of going out by myself after dark. I went so far as to call the head of the music committee in our branch Church of Christ, Scientist, to tell him not to count on me to serve as a precentor for the month of February. I said I did not think I would be going out at night anymore and therefore would not be attending the Wednesday testimony meetings. I added that because of this, I would be seeking to attend a branch church that had testimony meetings at noon.

Later, I recalled the numerous healings I'd had throughout my life by relying solely on Christian Science. In the business world, after my partner and I had sold our real estate firm, I was able to stay on with the company we'd sold to, and it was most harmonious. Christian Science helped me in that transaction and in many, many others. My blessings, I realized, had been abundant. I was particularly grateful to my mother for sharing with me the precious gift of Christian Science. (She had turned to Science for help when I was born, as the birth was a difficult one.)
