Healing of aftereffects of fall

Last year I visited my daughter and family in Indiana for a few days and then attended my oldest grandson’s graduation from college.

The first day I was at my daughter’s, my ten-year-old grandson wanted to show me how he could endlessly bounce up and down on his pogo stick. Because he did it so easily, and it looked like a lot of fun, I said I wanted to try it. (Well, not such a good idea!) After several unsuccessful attempts, I fell, landing on my back and hitting my head hard on the concrete driveway. The minute this happened I remember immediately thinking about the spiritual fact that I am the child of God, His image and likeness—spiritual, whole, intact. As I lay there, silently praying for myself, my daughter and grandson kept asking, “Are you all right?” 

Finally, after a few minutes, I was able to reassure them that I was OK, although I felt some apprehension that I might lose consciousness. I got up, went into the house, sat down, and continued to pray for myself. The fear of losing consciousness soon left me—enough so that I was able to rejoin the family. There was no further discussion from the family about this incident, for which I was very grateful.
