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)

  1. Sometimes, it is so hard trusting God’s timing,but He always works good for those who love him!! Great post!
    I hate being late, and if everything were up to me I’d be 5 minutes early everywhere.. my husband however, complete opposite. It drives me crazy, but has also helped me not be wound up so tight all the time.

  2. I hate being late. But, it’s a struggle for me. There’s always “one more thing I can get finished” before I leave. Or the kids…the kids don’t help! They are getting older and that helps a lot though! I’m not usually late. But, rather, just on time. It something I’m working on.

  3. That’s great that you arrive early! 🙂

    Haha… looks like I’m the only one here who is tardy or exactly on time more often than not. 😅 Time always seems to get away from me. I haven’t had a lot of appointments to keep, but the majority of them were vet appointments. There is nothing like a cat saying, “NONONONONO I’M NOT GETTING IN THAT PET CARRIER” to make you late. 😂
