On a beautiful, sunny day about a year ago, a friend and I took our dogs for a long walk. When I returned home and began preparing dinner, I felt an odd movement in one kneecap. After dinner when I attempted to stand up, my knee seemed to have become painfully locked. I was unable to stand or walk without help.
I spent some time studying and praying with the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. One of the statements I pondered was this: “There is no pain in Truth, and no truth in pain; no nerve in Mind, and no mind in nerve; no matter in Mind, and no mind in matter; no matter in Life, and no life in matter; no matter in good, and no good in matter” (p. 113).
Also, I began to think back on a recent testimony meeting at our local Christian Science church, in which a woman had spoken about a lost wallet. Her first thought in praying to resolve the problem was to acknowledge her innocence.
