Hand healed after fall

In 2006, when I was living in Beijing, China, I attended an afternoon conference in a hotel. The entry to the auditorium was dimly lit, and the stairs curved down to a lower level. I missed a step and fell with my notebook in my hand. When I arose, I assured my companion that I was OK, and we continued into the auditorium and found seats. However, I was no longer able to hold my notebook because the bone connected to my ring finger seemed to be broken, and my little finger did not align with the rest of my hand. 

After we sat down, I thought about a statement that was very familiar to me: “Accidents are unknown to God, or immortal Mind, and we must leave the mortal basis of belief and unite with the one Mind, in order to change the notion of chance to the proper sense of God’s unerring direction and thus bring out harmony” (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 424). As I prayed with this statement, the pain quickly went away. I was grateful that I could just sit and be still as I held my fingers with my other hand.
