About two years ago my husband and I were visiting a niece in another city. One evening while our niece was preparing dinner, I decided to run downstairs to help with the laundry. On the way down the steep flight, I missed the last four steps. While falling, I struck my head against the corner of a chest; then I landed on my back on the concrete floor.

I was grateful nobody heard this take place so that I could quietly pray right away. I lay still, acknowledging my perfection as in truth the unfallen, spiritual image of God—always under His care, safe and protected. In a few minutes I was able to get up. I took care of the laundry and joined the family for dinner. No one noticed the lump on my temple, and we enjoyed a normal, happy evening together.
