About three years ago when my husband and I were returning from visiting some friends, a car came toward us at a great rate of speed in our lane of traffic and collided with ours, I was thrown against the windshield, which was badly shattered, and much glass got into my scalp. My husband was able to leave the car, but I could not move. However, loving hands soon lifted me out.

Our car was so badly damaged that it could not be used again. The accident had occurred in front of a doctor's home, and I was taken into his office. The doctor recommended that an ambulance be called to take me to the hospital, since, according to his judgment, I was badly injured.

I repeated to myself Mrs. Eddy's statement in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 424), "Accidents are unknown to God, or immortal Mind, and we must leave the mortal basis of belief and unite with the one Mind, in order to change the notion of chance to the proper sense of God's unerring direction and thus bring out harmony." I was not able to continue praying, however, and asked my husband to call a Christian Science practitioner.
