Mini-Retreat

I went to a "mini-retreat" today... A Talk a Latte... (much to my disappointment, there weren't actually any lattes!) The topics were on home organization and scheduling/routines. There were three really great quotes that stuck out to me...
"Our unwillingness to say no to requests for our time or involvement is a modern form of idolatry. We enthrone our own desires, our pride and the lure of appearing busy." --Alice Fraley
"Put first things first and we get second things thrown in. Put second things first and we lose the first and second things." --C.S. Lewis
"Though I am always in haste, I am never in a hurry, because I never undertake more work than I can go through with calmness of spirit." --John Wesley
