Injured wrist healed

One day last year I was taking my wife back to the nursing home, where she lives, after an outing. It started to rain, and in my attempt to get the umbrella from the back seat of our car, I fell and injured my wrist. I thought that it was a small sprain. However, as I assisted my wife inside and made her comfortable, my wrist became increasingly painful. As I drove home, I found that I could not grasp the steering wheel with that hand, and worried that a bone must have been broken. After I arrived home, I strapped the wrist with sticking plaster to keep it stationary, as this seemed a wise thing to do.

I managed to prepare a meal and do all that was necessary, but later on I could not get comfortable and spent a very restless night. First thing the next morning, I phoned a Christian Science practitioner and requested Christian Science treatment. She immediately declared that an accident could never have happened to God’s perfect man—meaning that since I was a reflection of God, made in His image and likeness, I couldn’t be material or susceptible to injury. 

I was very grateful for the practitioner’s loving reminder that a spiritual idea could never fall or be broken. In fact, as we spoke on the phone, I felt the pain receding immediately. In less than two hours all the pain had gone, and I was perfectly comfortable.
