a woman drew near
with faith in her heart and one thought in her mind:
"If only I can touch the tassel of His cloak,
I'll be healed!"
She did - and was healed.
Then Jesus stopped.
"Who touched Me?" He asked.
Dull-witted, as usual, the Apostles answered,
"Master, how can You ask such a question
when there are so many people
pressing about You on every side?"
But He ignored them and insisted,
"Someone touched Me.
I can tell My healing power's been at work."
They held their breath and backed away,
then blurted out:
"I didn't do anything."
"Don't look at me!"
"I didn't even come near Him!"
And the poor woman,
trembling and alone in the circle they'd cleared,
admitted, "The one who touched You - it was I."]

I love that book, I read portions of it every once in a while. I thought the text goes well with the flowers I chose for today's meme. I hope you enjoyed both. Beautiful Sunday, my friends!
