We read in Psalms (91:11, 12): "He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone." The truth of this promise was experienced by me on a Thanksgiving evening about ten years ago. I had attended the Thanksgiving Day service at a Church of Christ, Scientist, where I was a new member, and my thinking had been greatly uplifted by the beauty of the service and the many inspiring testimonies of gratitude. In the afternoon I went with my husband and our young children to a neighbor's house, entering it by a newly constructed back porch.

When we left the neighbor's house, it was after dark. I led the way to the unlit back porch with my baby daughter in my arms. Thinking I knew where the steps down to the yard were, I stepped off the porch, but the steps were not there; and I fell forward. As I fell the three-foot drop to the ground, I felt as if I were floating, and I turned over so that our daughter, instead of being under me, was on top of me. I landed softly on the dirt in a spot just beside the rocks that bordered the driveway. I had the feeling of having been lowered carefully onto a soft mattress, and the baby was uninjured.
