The , words, "Underneath are the everlasting arms" (Deut. 33:27), came to my thought immediately as I inadvertently stepped into an unfinished area of a patio, falling against some jagged cement and injuring my ankle. From my previous training as a physical education director, with its accompanying studies, I felt sure that a bone had been broken.

I was at home alone with no near neighbors, and the telephone had not been connected; so I knew I would have to rely on my own understanding of God and His perfect idea, man, to take care of this situation, I knew that God has made man perfect, in His likeness, and that He knows nothing but good.

I recalled Mrs. Eddy's words (Science and Health, p. 424), '"Under divine Providence there can be no accidents, since there is no room for imperfection in perfection." I knew no fear. The pain ceased almost immediately, I had no desire to have the ankle X-rayed nor even taped, and I was not hampered in carrying on my daily duties. Within two weeks' time the healing was so complete that I could not tell which ankle had been injured.
