Forgiveness completes a healing

A number of years ago I went downhill skiing. It was my first time. The colleague who went with me encouraged me to really go for it, since I picked it up pretty effortlessly. In fact, he encouraged me to ski down what I later found out was the third most challenging hill at the resort. On the way down I lost control and almost ran into a grove of pine trees. I was able to make myself fall before hitting the trees, but injured my knee in the process, bending it at an odd angle. With my skiing partner’s help, I was able to get myself up and then ski down the rest of the hill. But once I was in the lodge, the knee was painful, and I wasn’t able to stand on it.

Upon returning from the trip, I had to stay home a couple of days from my work at our branch church’s Christian Science Reading Room. I was really looking forward to the Wednesday evening testimony meeting at our church, though. There I knew I would hear the readings from our pastor—the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy. I managed to get myself to the service with a lot of expectancy that I would hear healing ideas and inspiring testimonies. As I sat in the service, suddenly I felt an adjustment take place in my knee, and after the service, I walked out without limping. I am so grateful to Mrs. Eddy for her inspired insight that led her to provide these healing Wednesday services.
