And Jesus rose and followed him, with his disciples. And behold, a woman who had suffered from a discharge of blood for twelve years came up behind him and touched the fringe of his garment for she said to herself, “If I only touch his garment, I will be made well.” Jesus turned, and seeing her said, “Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And instantly the woman was made well.
Do you think you can sneak up on the divine
and grasp just the fringe of a garment
and not be changed?
The stepping up was the healing,
the reaching out was the moment of
but what will really put the chocolate in the cookie batter—
Who reaches to who?
