Injured knee quickly healed

“I’m fine” was my response to a friend’s concern. I had just slid on wet grass, which was very muddy after a recent snow, and my legs splayed in different directions. Struggling to stand, I became covered in mud, but immediately my friend set me on my feet, later explaining how her training as a Christian Science nurse had just “kicked in.” 

Later, I looked up some amusing definitions in a thesaurus for the word fine. I found, “blooming,” “rosy,” and “full of beans”—which, in Britain, means full of energy. I was in pain, caked in mud, and dealing with shock. I was far from rosy and full of beans. However, my declaration that I was fine was the reality of my spiritual perfection, and the prelude to my eventual healing.
