My husband was alarmed when I cried out, "I'm all right. I am all right!" as I fell backward on the blacktop. Supporting my statement was a citation written by Mary Baker Eddy in Science and Health, which had come instantly to thought: "When an accident happens, you think or exclaim, 'I am hurt!' Your thought is more powerful than your words, more powerful than the accident itself, to make the injury real.

"Now reverse the process. Declare that you are not hurt and understanding the reason why, and you will find the ensuing good effects to be in exact proportion to your disbelief in physics, and your fidelity to divine metaphysics, confidence in God as All, which the Scriptures declare Him to be" (p. 397). This reaffirmed my awareness of God's presence in the most trying of circumstances.
