My ankle—perfectly fine again!

Last spring, we were playing Capture the Flag at my school. In the middle of the game a girl tripped me, and I rolled my ankle. I was in a lot of pain and asked to sit out for the rest of the game. At the end of the game my friend took me to the office, where I called my family. My friend got my lunch for me and stayed there with me until I could go home.

A few of the teachers walked by. Since the teachers at my school are Christian Scientists, they talked to me about God and about how I am the image and likeness of God. My friend is also a Christian Scientist, so she shared some good thoughts with me, such as you are perfect because God made you perfect! These thoughts really helped me.

My mom was out of town that day, and my dad was at work, so I went to my grandparents’ house after school. They told me that because God is Spirit and I am the reflection of God, then I must be spiritual, not material! My grandfather called a Christian Science practitioner to help pray for me. I called my mom and she told me that I am a reflection of God, and God’s reflection is always healthy and strong. I went to bed, and the next morning I could walk without difficulty.
