I love reading testimonies and articles in the early, as well as the present, issues of The Christian Science Journal and the Christian Science Sentinel. The gratitude to God, amazement, and awe expressed by the writers because of their demonstration of Christian Science are so inspiring. Better yet, I never fail to find a statement or experience from someone that completely meets my needs today.
In reading those early testimonies, I have especially noticed the frequent healing of vision problems. They were rarely the main healing being shared. Instead, they were often mentioned just briefly toward the end: “I laid aside my glasses” or, “I no longer need glasses.”
After I graduated from college, I became aware of being nearsighted. Being too vain for glasses, I ignored it until a friend reported that co-workers considered me aloof as I never returned their smiles or acknowledged them in hallways. “Oh, Susan isn’t unfriendly,” my friend would respond. “She just can’t see you.” Realizing my social life was at stake, I immediately purchased glasses and briefly tried contact lenses, persuading myself that this was a fun fashion choice since I could collect a variety of colors.
