One winter day many years ago, my mother asked me if I would go up on the roof and break away some icicles. It was very windy and icy, and when I reached the top of the ladder, I slipped and fell the full two stories. I landed on my side on the concrete driveway. I was unable to move, and there was no one nearby to help me. I was a very new student of Christian Science at that time and found myself turning to it simply because I had no other option at hand. I did not have a clear understanding of how to pray for myself, but I did know "the scientific statement of being" found in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. Part of it reads, "All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all" (p. 468).

I began to ponder the meaning of the words "All-in-all." I was beginning to see that All is infinitely vast, and I reasoned that Mind must be infinitely good and all-powerful. I knew from reading the Bible that God created everything very good, as the first chapter of Genesis states. This enlightened understanding of God being all presence, everywhere, making all spiritual and good, enabled me to see that no condition, circumstance, or accident could have any place to make itself known or believed. Then, quite suddenly, I realized that I was well. Within just thirty minutes of my fall, I was able to rise and return to my normal activities, free from any harmful effects.
