Testimonies of Healing


From the August 2006 issue of The Christian Science Journal

IT HAPPENED UNEXPECTEDLY. But this time, my failing health brought me to the point of being between life and death.

It was early in 2005, and I had just attended a funeral service for a close friend who had been sick for several years. I remembered her as she had been before her illness. She had loved singing Russian lyrical songs. She also grew beautiful indoor flowers—she was a biologist and knew how to care for them. I thought I had witnessed her struggle quite calmly. But in hindsight, probably subconsciously, the chill of fear had crept into my thought.

On my way home from the service, I felt I was suffocating. I could neither inhale nor exhale fully. With great difficulty, I made it home from the metro station.
