Freed( pondering Mark 5: 21-34)

Gathering her brokenness,

all of the things

she had been told

about herself,

the things she herself had said,

allowing them to hold her

no longer,


ventured out,

free now

of conventions walls,




she sought the one

in whom her

healing lay,

not to demand

just to touch…


trembling she reached out,

pushing past

her crowded thoughts,

her doubts and fears,

a wordless prayer

extended finger tips,

she brushed his robe

and knew her healing, and

resolved to slip away,



but he had more to give,

and called her forward,

acknowledging her strength and faith

he named her clean,

whole and accepted,

she was herself

at last…



About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
