Several years ago, when I got home from work one afternoon, my husband called me to come and see some new baby pigs. While I was in the farrowing house, a heavy metal gate fell across my foot. My husband was very concerned and asked if I was all right. After a few moments I managed to tell him, "Yes, I'm all right." My husband is not a Christian Scientist, but he appreciates my desire to work out problems through prayer, so he didn't say anything else.

I walked to the house, praying all the way to know that God never causes accidents and that in reality there is no such thing as chance—only God's unfailing direction. I continued to pray as I prepared dinner and cleaned up after. My foot was still hurting, though, and my husband suggested I put an ice bag on it or I wouldn't be able to get any rest that night.
