One night a few years ago I slipped on ice in the driveway of our home, striking my head and one side of my body on the concrete rim of a flower bed. When I attempted to call out for help, I found that I could not speak or move. The temperature was below zero, and a wave of fear swept over me that my husband would not be expecting me back so soon, and that I might not be found for hours. There was great pain, and I could take only very shallow breaths without feeling I was passing out.

After a time, I was able to reach out to God for help, and certain statements from the Bible and the textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, began to pour into my consciousness. One that I found especially helpful was (ibid., p. 258), "Never born and never dying, it were impossible for man, under the government of God in eternal Science, to fall from his high estate."
