never separate from God

I've had many quick healings in Christian Science, from prayer alone. But I've also experienced wonderful healings that demanded I stay with my prayer for a longer period of time. One of those occurred five years ago when I severely injured my foot and ankle. I felt compelled at the time to dig deep to discover God's care and intelligent direction; not to allow pain, incapacity, or time, to concern me before a complete healing came about—and to find an even greater understanding of what really heals.

In the fall of 2004, my husband and I were out walking along the edge of a cascading brook in New Hampshire when I caught my foot between two large slippery rocks. As I fell, I heard several cracking sounds and felt severe pain. With some effort, my husband and a passerby were able to help me up. Using their shoulders as crutches, I hopped back to the car. My foot and ankle became very swollen and discolored. I couldn't move them or put any weight on them. It seemed certain that bones had been broken.
