On page 424 of Science and Health we read, "Accidents are unknown to God." The proof of this was brought home to the writer in a striking manner some time ago. While out walking one day our three-year-old boy playfully climbed upon a pedestal of a large concrete fern pot, the stem of which was cracked so that it toppled over and fell from a distance of about three feet, the sharp edge pinning the child to the pavement by his knees. The pot weighed well over a hundred pounds, and it was all we could do to lift it off him. We immediately endeavored to quiet our fears and to realize God's allness, and as soon as possible asked a Christian Science practitioner for help. The child cried very little and went to sleep at the usual hour; and the next morning, although he could not walk, he did not appear to suffer any pain, but crawled around on the floor. In the afternoon, while I was out of the room for a moment, the child, seeing something out of his reach that he wanted, simply got up and walked after it. Although the legs had been crushed badly. the next day there was no sign of the injury except a large bruise and a few scratches, which soon disappeared.
I have been healed of what was apparently a ruptured muscle which made my left arm entirely useless and for which my physician could give no relief. This healing was brought about. through reading Science and Health for the first time. With the help of a practitioner I was also healed of what to mortal sense was an aggravated form of uric acid poisoning. My husband has been healed of tropical fever and inflammatory rheumatism, severe electrical burns, and numerous minor discordant conditions.
In addition to physical benefits we have also experienced the spiritual regeneration so frequently mentioned in the testimonies of healing. For all the blessings received words cannot express our thankfulness to God and our gratitude to our beloved Leader, Mrs. Eddy.—Los Angeles, Cal.
