When I was a child I fell and sprained my ankle. It was painful, and swelled so that I could not wear my shoe, nor could I go upstairs, excepting on my hands and knees. We knew nothing of Christian Science at that time, and, as I remember it, it was about three weeks before the sprain was healed. After I became interested in Christian Science, we were living where we had over a mile to walk to take the car, and as I started out, alone, for church one Wednesday evening, I stepped in a hole at the side of the road, turning my foot over in such a way that my ankle was sprained. At first the pain was intense, and the suggestion that I go home came to me, but instead I rested by a tree and quietly tried to realize the allness of God, and then called for a friend, who was going to church with me. We went on our way, walking quickly down the road. I was perfectly free, although at first it seemed as though I should go limping along.
