Simon Peter, Andrew, James, John, Philip, Nathanael, Matthew, Bartholemew,
Judas, Thaddeus, Thomas and another James.
A woman came in and knelt at his feet and began to weep.
Then she washed his feet with her tears,
and then wiped them with her hair.
Then she broke open a vial or expensive ointment
and poured it over his feet.
Simon protested greatly, as did the others.
But Jesus said, you did not even provide water
for me to wash my feet with, but this woman,
has not only washed them but anointed them as well.
Then he looked at the woman and said
Woman, your sins are forgiven you, go in peace.
and said, "Let us go to the other side."
Since he was very tired from the day, he laid down and slept.
Suddenly a great storm arose and beat violently
against the boat. The ship began to sink!
The disciple, fearing greatly, awoke him and said
Don't you care about us?
Jesus arose and spoke to the wind and the sea
and said "Peace be still!" Then he looked at them and said
"Why are you so fearful? Where is your faith?"
The disciples were amazed that even
the sea and the wind obeyed him.
a woman made her way through the crowd.
She was very sick, but she knew if she could
just touch Jesus she would be healed.
As soon as she touched his garment, she was.
Jesus and asked him to come and heal his daughter.
Unfortunately, before they got there, the little girl died.
But Jesus chased everyone out of the room and took
the little girl by the hand. He said to her
"Little maid, arise!" Immediately, she opened her eyes,
and he told them to get her something to eat.
Aren't you glad he loves us?
