One person who comes to mind is Susannah Wesley. She had a ridiculous number of children and hence little time to herself yet in the midst of the ordered chaos she would throw her apron over her head and pray. This made a great impression on her children. One (John) went on to lead the biggest revival the UK ever experienced and another (Charles) wrote hymns and carols which are still sung today: Hark the Herald Angels Sing, for example. So perhaps I could put the tea-towels to a different use and affect the world that way. Just a thought.

(These are some of my Christmas ones - nice, aren't they!)
p.s. I pity anyone that would have to go through my stuff were I to unexpectedly leave this mortal coil. There is a mixture of extreme order and utter chaos. The problem is I completely understand the Edward Monkton quote: 'EVERYTHING must be straight or the world will EXPLODE. Those who do not believe in the law of straightness will not BE SAVED'* Making everything straight takes time though, lots and lots of it and since when I tidy I want all to be in nice straight lines and neat files with colour-coordinated clips the very thought of it makes me tired. When I have an important deadline though, suddenly pulling all the contents out of my wardrobe in order to sort and tidy becomes an OVERWHELMINGLY IMPORTANT task that can NOT be ignored. Procrastination leads to straightness (and stress).
p.p.s Just came across this today, it's great, talk about the law of straightness: Ursus Wehli Tidying up Art.
