Full recovery following paralysis

The fact that God and His creation are absolute good is basic to healings I have had. One in particular stands out. About twenty-five years ago I was healed of a disabling illness. Recently, when I was remembering this experience with a friend, we laughed about all the papers strewn around on my bed when I was staying at a non-medical care facility. I had written out the Christian Science Quarterly Weekly Bible Lessons with my left hand because my right side was paralyzed.

During the healing I didn't realize or care to know the specifics of the problem. Instead, I knew that if I was to be healed, I should know more of God's perfection, and therefore of my own, since each one of us is created in God's image and likeness. Statements in Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy, such as this one, also helped: "It must be clear to you that sickness is no more the reality of being than is sin. This mortal dream of sickness, sin, and death should cease through Christian Science. Then one disease would be as readily destroyed as another" (p. 418).
