Tardy

I’m not someone who is tardy anywhere I go. Never have been, never will be.

I was never late in school. I always got to my classes on time and never could understand why people were late. Too busy socializing, I suppose. I didn’t seem to have that problem. I knew where I needed to be and I got there on time. It’s not that I didn’t want to socialize, I just knew there was a time and a place for it. Wow, I was such a goody goody, now that I think about it. Oh well.

When I know I have somewhere to be I plan on being there 10-15 minutes early. It’s just something I’ve always done. My mother is the same way so I’m supposing I got it from her.

I can’t STAND being late. It drives me crazy. I can’t stand people staring at me when I walk into the room after something has already started. I hate being the center of attention. I’m a wallflower girl, thankyouverymuch.

Sometimes it seems like God is late in answering our prayers when it all actuality, He’s right on time. His timing is not our timing. We need to remember that. And one day He’s coming back for us and it will be right on time.

Are you an early bird? Or do you struggle with tardiness?

This was my first “prompt” I’ve ever done. I’m going to try to start doing these prompts once a week to help me with my writing. This was a little short, I know, but hopefully I’ll get better in time (no pun intended, lol)

Our Advocate

Image result for 1 john 2:1We’re human. We’re going to sin. It’s in our nature.

I wrote a poem last night regarding our sinful nature. Let me know what you think!

Take This Sin

Take this sin
It threatens to consume me
I try to run from it
I try to hide.
But it finds me
No matter how hard I try
It finds me.

Take this sin from me Lord
Take this sin
I’m tired of running
I’m tired of hiding

Please, take this sin.
