While Jesus remained with the disciples, their faith for the most part was of the same essence as his, but as the years passed and his followers became more and more immersed in objective organization, they ceased to preach the necessity of a living faith. In fact, a few hundred years later, the Christians were teaching that the early “miracles” merely proved the divinity of Jesus. –Ernest Holmes
When I am working on a creative project sometimes I make a big mess. When I am making a quilt, I try lots of different fabrics—colors, experimenting, composing and improvising. When the design is complete I put it together with thread and sewing. Then, I embellish with paint, buttons, beads—layer upon layer until it seems to be enough. It’s not always apparent what is happening, but there is an organization in process that is surprising at times.
