Quotes from Edith:
‘The duties and cares of the day ahead crowd about us when we awake in the morning (if they have not already dispelled our nights rest). We must take the reins in hand and say,”take it easy! not any of this may touch me now. My first hour belongs to the Lord. I will tackle the days work which he charges me with, and he will give me the power to accomplish it”. During the day if pressing duties prohibit a quiet hour, ‘then at least for a moment seal oneself off inwardly against all other things and take refuge in the Lord’.
‘Lay all your cares about the future trustingly in God’s hands and let yourself be guided by the Lord like a little child.’
