Material picture or spiritual reality?

When our daughter, Sarah, began to walk at about 11 months, her right foot turned inward at a noticeable angle. Later, during a routine examination, a pediatrician suggested that Sarah would need an aluminum brace to correct the problem, and we were asked to see an orthopedic specialist. In the interim, I called a Christian Science practitioner to pray with me about the situation. The practitioner agreed, and at the end of our brief conversation she paraphrased a verse from Hebrews, “God makes straight paths for her feet.” I looked up the whole verse, which reads, “And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed” (Hebrews 12:13). In less than a week the foot was as perfectly straight as the other. We never went to the orthopedist. It was a complete healing. 

How can one explain such a quick healing of a noticeably crooked foot? Was it a miracle or some kind of divine intervention?
