"Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits"...

"Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits" (Ps. 103:2). Even as a girl I did a lot of Bible reading. I became acquainted with Christian Science in 1926. Since my mother was already familiar with this Science, I went with her one day to a Christian Science practitioner to learn more of God. From childhood on I had always been frail in health, and I thought God had put me in the world to suffer. In response to this the practitioner explained God's spiritual creation to me. She said that God is Love and has made everything good and that suffering is a false, mortal belief. As I changed my thinking and learned more of my true spiritual being as God's perfect child, I was healed.

There are many healings and blessings I could relate. In 1978 I had a very lovely proof of divine help and power. On a hot Sunday evening I went out and sat on the veranda, where I took off my slippers and made myself comfortable. As I sat there in the dark, suddenly something bit me on my foot. I got up, turned on the light, and saw a poisonous snake.
