A HEALING I HAD AT CAMP last summer made me realize just how quickly and completely God heals. One Friday morning, my riding class took a trail ride. We were just beginning to pick up the pace a little and start cantering, when my horse spooked. I don't know why he did this, but, in a flash, I flew over his head and landed on my left shoulder. Although I was wearing a helmet, it broke when I was kicked in the head while I was underneath the horse. As I lay on the ground, with a mouthful of dirt and the wind knocked out of me, a hymn came to mind. I began singing it in my head, and concentrating only on the words instead on the pain in my body. This is how it goes:
I walk with Love along the way,
And O, it is a holy day;
No more I suffer cruel fear,
I feel God's presence with me
The joy that none can take away
Is mine; I walk with Love today.
(Christian Science Hymnal, No. 139)
