Quick recovery from bad slip

Several years ago, I slipped getting out of the shower, hitting one leg very hard against the edge of a tile. The force of the fall made such a deep impression in my skin that the shinbone was visible. I immediately and emphatically rejected the aggressive belief that I’d had an accident. I thought, “If accidents are unknown to God, they are also unknown to His children.” 

The basis for my reasoning was the following statement from the Christian Science textbook: “Accidents are unknown to God, or immortal Mind, and we must leave the mortal basis of belief and unite with the one Mind, in order to change the notion of chance to the proper sense of God’s unerring direction and thus bring out harmony. 

“Under divine Providence there can be no accidents, since there is no room for imperfection in perfection” (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 424).
