Frances Eden

Well, like Donna mentioned in her comment, Sarah Woodham can be a little tedious. She is so right. I love the sampler, but I can only work on it for it so long! I ended up getting Frances Eden out of the wip basket for a change of pace. I just love this sampler. The bright colors are so much fun to stitch with!

Thank you all for your kind words about the transfer. I'm really doing fine. I know we'll get down there eventually. :) Write soon!

  18. A Course in Miracles: The Message:
    A Course in Miracles the message teaches us that there is a Voice for God in our minds that is always talking to us, telling us that we are: unlimited, one with all life, eternal, and literally invulnerable. That Voice is the Holy Spirit. There is another voice in our minds that we made up that lies to us and tells us we are: limited, separate, mortal, and vulnerable. That voice is the ego. A primary focus of a course in miracle’s message is to teach us how to tell these two voices apart. Once we do that we must choose to listen to the Holy Spirit and trust the Holy Spirit's counsel. We will always hear the voice of the ego while here in the dream but we should not accept its guidance or counsel about anything. In a course in miracle the message is not about the death of the ego, but how to properly relate to it.Frances Xu
