I love it when Bible stories come to life like this! You did an excellent job helping me understand what this poor woman might have been feeling, and that the healing she needed was not just from the issue of blood.

I especially enjoyed the second and third paragraphs where you contrasted her life before the disease with her life after she became afflicted. The ending was well done, too. Very nice! :)
Your passion and belief shown all the way through this piece. I don't think I ever recall seeing this Bible story re-told as you have done. You've done a wonderful job and taught us a lot about faith in the process. Thank-you for sharing this story.

Masterful story telling. I love the depth that you gave to this woman's story. I found myself rejoicing with her over the miraculous healing of such an awful condition. I love the title. Stories such as yours always make me so glad to know the Healer. Very uplifting. Excellent job.

A very nice character study. I loved the life you breathed into her, and the feelings that you made so clear. Well done.

Very good description. The 2nd paragraph is my favorite.

Very nice retelling of a very familiar Bible story. So familiar, in fact, that I never really thought much about who she was, or what she was like before the disease. Good job.

I always comment on my pastor for bringing the Bible to life--you've got him beat with this. Great job.

I enjoyed this new look at this familiar story. Good! I really don't like to use the word "suddenly" so it kind of stuck out ... but that's just me and is a little nit pick.
