Two meaningful healings

Over a long life as a Christian Scientist, I have learned that we must strive to maintain a state of consciousness that keeps the truth of being in the forefront of thought all the time. Mary Baker Eddy writes, “Keep in mind the verity of being,—that man is the image and likeness of God, in whom all being is painless and permanent” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 414). The word verity is defined in one dictionary as “something, such as a statement, principle, or belief, that is true, especially an enduring truth.”

I have prayed regularly to know that the Christ, Truth, is always at work in consciousness and I am naturally receptive to it, and that as God’s child, the expression of Spirit, I am entirely harmonious, sound, and safe.

I believe this prayerful work was the basis of the protection and healing I experienced one day. I was on my way to visit one of my daughters and had stopped to buy a few things. I was pushing a large cart down an aisle when a man riding an electric-powered cart rounded a corner, colliding into my cart with such force that it slammed into my shins and knocked me backward flat on my back. My head hit the concrete floor.
