Christian Science has been a great protection to me in overcoming the effects of accidents. I wish to tell of one which without Christian Science would no doubt have either proved fatal or left me a cripple. A few months ago I fell backward down a steep stairway with a sharp turn in it, and when I reached the bottom I seemed hurt from head to foot. I immediately declared the truth, however, knowing that there are no accidents in Mind, and I certainly felt a wonderful sense of protection, despite the fact that I could not bear to have my husband move me. He was very frightened and called a Christian Scientist close by. I held fast to the truth, refusing to let fear gain dominion over me. The next morning, although my ankle was very much swollen and discolored it did not pain me. My neck seemed stiff and my back somewhat sore, but I put on slippers and went to church. A few weeks afterwards a swelling formed on my collar bone, and a friend of mine who looked at it said I had either broken the collarbone or had torn the ligaments. In a few days the swelling left and the healing was complete.

I am very grateful for Christian Science, and especially for the literature. It means so much to me. The more I read it the more I love it, and the more grateful I feel toward our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, for giving us this practical religion, which certainly meets our every need, and acquaints us with God.
