We all have them.

We all set them.

Sometimes, they’re set too high,

And we grow frustrated and angry, sorrowful and discouraged.

Sometimes, they’re set too low,

And we act shocked, amazed, elated and even indignant.


We all receive them.

We all survive through them.

Sometimes, they make us feel warm, welcomed and embraced.

Sometimes, they leave us weary, battered and confused.


Maybe, if we could learn the difference between grace and judgment,

They would be easier to give.

Maybe, if we realized the perfect balance is found in love and absolute truth,

They could be easier to live.

  1. Nicely put Mia. …When expectations disappoint us, that’s when we must remember that we have the power to set the atmosphere in whatever we are doing, visiting family, working, cooking, worshiping, whatever it is. I don’t want to forget that I must choose not to, but just love through any situation. God’s Grace is so sufficient for all my failed expectations. Now is a good time especially for me to remember that I have the power to set the stage for my family gatherings and fun times together. Thanks for sharing. Love you much.
