Christian Science Testimony
"GOD IS LIGHT . . ."

         A friend had sent me Christian Science literature, and in my reading of it I came across this wonderful declaration of John: "God is light, and in him is no darkness at all." This illuminating message had for several days been frequently in mind, until one noon in preparing lunch I took the corner of my apron to remove a basin of boiling syrup from the gas stove. At that moment my fourteen-year-old son called to me, and as I turned quickly, the apron sticking fast to the basin brought down the contents over my left hand. I glanced at the red hand and exclaimed, "Oh, George, you must help mother to think the right thoughts!" Instantly the thought came, "God is light, and in him is no darkness at all." I do not know how many seconds this thought filled my consciousness, but in an incredibly short time, feeling no sense of burn, I uncovered my hand and found it the same as the other. It was a complete healing. A day or two after I said to George, "If mother should tell that to people, they would not believe it, would they?" "No, mother," he said, "but I saw it."

         Today George with his brother Carle is at the front in France, and my heart goes out with an unexplainable happiness for Christian Science — this divine Principle of life, whose loving message came to a suffering world through Christ Jesus, and since has been given to us by dear Mrs. Eddy, until millions echo the glorious message, "God is light, and in him is no darkness at all."
