The testimonies of healing in the Christian Science periodicals...

The testimonies of healing in the Christian Science periodicals —week by week and month by month—mean so much to me and are so helpful and encouraging that, at long last, I feel moved to share my own gratitude for the wonderful blessings of Christian Science.

Seventeen years ago my life seemed at a very low ebb. My marriage had ended very unexpectedly after twenty-six happy years. I was faced with coping on my own (our four children were adult enough to be leading their own lives) on a greatly reduced income. My husband and I had both been active members of our parish church, but I did not find the help I needed there. What help did I need? I prayed, declaring in the words of the Psalmist, "Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory" (Ps. 73:24).

My answer came when an acquaintance, realizing how very distressed and unhappy I was, talked to me of Christian Science and asked if I would like to get in touch with a Christian Science practitioner. I did so, and this practitioner very lovingly told me of our Father's infinite, all-encompassing love for each and every one. She helped me turn my thoughts away from negative, resentful, hurt feelings, to a recognition of the presence of Christ, to a better understanding of our preciousness to our Father-Mother God, and to an acknowledgment of man as God's spiritual reflection—made in His image and likeness to reflect His glory.
