GRATEFUL FOR MANY HEALINGS
My daughter, then eleven years old, awoke one morning about four or five weeks after we first became interested in Christian Science, in a very peculiar condition. She called to me, but before I could reach her she had tried to get to my bed, falling as she came. When I had picked her up and laid her on her bed I noticed that there seemed to be neither breath nor heartbeat. I immediately looked away from this seeming condition by closing my eyes to error, and knowing that God is the only power and in His kingdom there is no death. My knowledge of Christian Science was very meager; but I applied the little I knew with good results, for in a very short time I saw the manifestations of life returning, and during the rest of the day there was no sign of any disturbance having occurred. She has since been healed of scarlet fever in twenty-four hours, although to mortal sense this was quite a severe case.
I have had the privilege of witnessing the healing of many different diseases. For all these blessings I am very grateful, but words are inadequate to express my gratitude for the spiritual uplift gained through this study. I am thankful to God, who gives us all good, and to Jesus, who came showing the way, also sincerely grateful to Mrs. Eddy, who was able through her purity of thought to reveal the truth in our age. It is a great privilege to be here at this time, receiving the blessings of Christian Science. I am also grateful to all the friends who have given me a helping hand on the way
