I am grateful for having had Christian Science all of my life
I am grateful for having had Christian Science all of my life. It has helped me to be fearless in times of need.
When I was a young woman, I was eating a piece of raisin cake and I swallowed what I thought was a stem of a raisin. It became lodged in my throat. I tried to clear my throat by swallowing dried bread, with no results. Then I tried unsuccessfully to reach the obstruction with my fingers.
Some time passed and it grew late, so I went to bed. Before retiring I picked up an issue of the Sentinel and began reading it to quiet my thought. Suddenly I recalled that "truth removes properly whatever is offensive." The full statement from Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy reads, "A spiritual idea has not a single element of error, and this truth removes properly whatever is offensive." I was inspired by this clear view of man's being, as spiritual and unobstructed. As I thought about this, the intrusive object floated up onto my tongue, and to my surprise I found that it was a common pin. There were no aftereffects of this experience and I was very grateful.
