Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. (Hebrews 10:24 NLT)
Expectations exist. It’s my job to know whether they are realistic or not. I have to discern whether some of my expectations arise from lies that I have believed about myself and others. I may even need to evaluate my perception of love.
If I have a unrealistic perspective of love, then it will affect my expectations.
Today, I invite you to interview your expectations and dialogue with LOVE.
Expectations are making me . . .
Love is . . .
And if that invitation feels too overwhelming today, check out these two links on playing with crayons. These crayons exceed expectation. I first learned about them from one of my favorite online artists, DaisyYellow. I never knew that water soluble crayons existed. I grew up with Crayola crayons, which just the smell of a fresh box can transport me back to childhood and coloring through the long winters of western New York. (I would definitely encourage you to splurge on the Caran D’Ache Neocolor II water soluble crayons. Make sure they are the water soluble ones. They make various types of crayons, just like Crayola. FYI: Crayola makes a pretty awesome water soluble oil pastel!)
