Aprapos

The other day a friend from work came up to me and gave me this card.



Apparently, about a year ago, she found this in a bookstore in Utah or somewhere and bought it for me. I had told her not too long after meeting her how my favorite passage in the bible was always the woman who was reaching for Jesus's robe, thinking, if I can just touch him, I will be healed.

Jesus felt her touch him and I believe he felt the healing leave him and he turned and saw her and what he said to her was

"Your faith has healed you".

And I've always took that to heart, for as long as I remembered. If I just believed it unwaveringly, it would be so.

She had this for me a year ago and just now found it. I told her maybe she lost it so she could give it to me when it mattered. A year ago it would have been nice, but now it's pertinet...aprapos...poingnant. All of those things. Perfect.

What's that? You want to comment? Just click on the itty-bitty words below that say "Gimme Some Sugar". Can you see them? Good. We can't wait to chat with you.

That's one of my favorite stories too. And that's a beautiful card too. Glad she "lost" it until now when it could mean so much to you. :0)

That's very odd - I was talking about that story just LAST NIGHT with my youngest brother. Chills!
