Delay--100 Words


I’ll admit it. I’m not very good with waiting.

Just about anyone who even somewhat knows me knows that!

I hate waiting in line at the grocery store. The bank. A restaurant. The airport. In traffic.

If I had to rejoin my church, I’d probably hate if I had to wait in line to talk with the pastor!

Some delays can’t be helped.

Others can be.

Especially those delays caused by others. And their lack of decision-making ability.

There can be reasons for delays. I get that. But, often, it’s nothing more than excuses.

Help me out.

Decide already!

Responsibility--100 Words


Responsibility can be given or taken.

I handle those with little problem. Most of us do.

Unfortunately, responsibility can be held in limbo as well. That’s when the struggle becomes great.

When clear lines of responsibility aren’t defined, confusion, uncertainty, and anxiety rule the day.

At that point, I don’t know which way to go. Or, what my role is.

Josiah Charles Stamp said, “It is easy to dodge our responsibilities, but we cannot dodge the consequences of dodging our responsibilities.”

If you are tasked with a responsibility, do it. It makes it easier on the rest of us.
