Some time ago I fell down a flight of stairs in the hall of my home, severely striking the side of my head and bruising many parts of my body. As I lay at the bottom of that stairway, with no one near to give aid, I wondered how I should get upstairs again. In this helpless condition my thought turned to these words of Mrs. Eddy, from Science and Health (p. 424): "Accidents are unknown to God, or immortal Mind." I seemed to realize the truth of these words and to discern God's ever-presence and perfection clearer than ever before. Suddenly I arose, as though lifted up, and found myself walking up those stairs entirely free. All pain had completely disappeared, and I went about my household duties as though nothing had occurred. What a glorious day that turned out to be, because the truth had again been demonstrated that the everlasting arms of Love do uphold and sustain us in time of need!
Christian Science, the greatest gift of God to man, made available to all in this age through our revered Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, has brought joy and happiness to me and mine. In its teachings can be found the "pearl of great price" spoken of by Christ Jesus, making our lives glow with health and holiness.—Chicago, Illinois.
