Safety following a car accident

An experience I had as a teenager proved to me Mrs. Eddy's statement "Divine Love always has met and always will meet every human need" (Science and Health, p. 494). After my graduation from high school, my father's new job took the family from the Midwest to the West Coast. He went ahead to begin work, and the family was to join him several weeks later. We would be driving cross-country to our new home. My mother, brother, and I packed plants, my cello, blankets, and suitcases in our convertible and began the drive.

Early on the third morning of the trip, we were on a desolate road in the middle of Montana, when our car suddenly careened off the road. I was asleep in the back seat when I felt the car swerve violently. A loved hymn I had learned in Sunday School flooded my thought, and I was filled with peace. The car had plunged down an eight-foot embankment and landed upside down, crushing the car's canvas roof. However, the three of us, though upside down, were all alive and uninjured. Once we were out of the car, my mother immediately declared that God meets every need. Suddenly, on this remote road, we saw a large moving van approach and waved it down. The driver stopped to help. He was on his way to the very town where we were headed. He loaded our belongings onto his van and also radioed for help to take us to town. The next morning the family boarded a bus for the remainder of the trip to the West Coast, with hearts rejoicing over God's loving care for us.
