Keep watch! I come unannounced, like a thief. You’re blessed if, awake and dressed, you’re ready for me. (Revelation 16:15 TM)
As a dad, I’ve gotten to the point that I’m not going to be responsible for getting the girls up and make sure they’re ready. They’re big girls. They can take care of themselves, and they need to be responsible to set the alarm, get their hinies out of bed and be ready to go. If they’re not up and ready – I’ll go on without them.
I guess our Father in heaven parents with similar principles 🙂
