"You are happy!"
After several days and nights of various physical problems, I felt I was facing the dark and deadened sense of the "last enemy." I seemed to have no dominion or authority to cope with this fear. I called a dear friend, a Christian Science practitioner, and told her that I felt I was hanging on to life by a thread. Her first words to me were "You are happy." It was a strange thing to hear at that point. Here was no profound comment—just a very simple statement: "You are happy."
While happiness seemed a very remote state at that moment, I accepted this truth, and thought, "I am happy, because happiness is spiritual and comes from God, Spirit." All during that night I clung steadfastly to those words. Every argument of fear or torment I faced was silenced with that simple truth. Gradually the words brought about a deep spiritual conviction of God's presence and power, and with it a great sense of peace. That proved to be a turning point in a troubling experience, and the result was a complete healing.
