"Often...I have said to the children or someone helping me, "I can't face one more person today-and just want to run". So often what has happened when I have dished out the last of fifty-two desserts and decided that I was going to dash away to some quiet spot, the answer to my cry to the Lord-in the midst of throwing the spoon into the sink, and pouring the next cup of tea-there has been a knock at the door! Cruel? No. it has so often been a sudden answer on the part of the Lord in the direction of showing me what it was all about."
From Edith Schaeffer "What is a family"
