Insight while flying over Iraq

Christian Science churches hold weekly testimony meetings in which people tell how their study of this Science has helped them gain healing or benefit in other ways. I confess that for years, whenever someone stood up at one of these meetings and told how they prayed when they lost their keys or their wallet, I used to get a little annoyed. “Come on,” I’d think to myself. “Is that the best you’ve got?” 

Sure, I’ve prayed about lost items and been grateful to find them again, but I wasn’t about to get up and give a testimony about it! Little did I realize how much healing is actually packed into the act of expressing gratitude for even the simplest blessings.
