† ♥ ✞ ♥ † "The woman in my painting is a contemporary one. She symbolizes our questioning generation. She reaches right past the fancy garments to the One who has the real power - Jesus. He still has that power. But we can only experience it for ourselves when we take the risk and reach out for Him." -- Ron DiCianni ✞
“And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment: For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour” (Matt. 9:20-22).
".. a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and touched the hem of His garment. For she said to herself, 'If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well.' But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, 'Be of good cheer, daughter; your faith has made you well.' And the woman was made well from that hour." (Matthew 9:20-22)
