Healed after a trampoline fall

When I was a boy we had a large trampoline in our backyard. One afternoon, when I was in fourth grade, my brother and I were showing a friend from church the different things we could do on the trampoline—like bouncing high in the air and doing flips. At one point, I bounced very high and flew straight off of the trampoline. I landed on the concrete a few feet away, hitting my head in the fall. It hurt badly and my forehead was bleeding. 

My mom took me in the house, and she washed and bandaged my face at the sink. In front of the sink is a large mirror, and there we talked about how we could turn our thoughts away from any picture of accident, just like we could look away from the injury in the mirror. 

Then we talked about turning our thoughts to God and knowing that we are His reflection—concepts I had heard before while attending Christian Science Sunday School. Just as my reflection in the mirror images back everything I do, I am actually God’s reflection, His image, and I copy and image what He is.
