Great Expectations !
Late in the spring mama and I went to a church youth fund raiser. I got a car wash she got two bell pepper plants - she thought! :o( !! Mama worked up a nice little plot of soil next to the house and planted her bell pepper plants - she had high expectations of nice big green bell peppers. I even think she talked to the plants and I know she whispered a prayer that they would survive and produce nice green bell peppers - did not happen like she thought and prayed for! I discovered the 'red chili peppers' first - broke the news to mama and she was upset, extremely disappointed, and wanted her 50 cents back! Her expectations had not been met!
How are you doing with your expectations? A few disappointments? Remember God is in control! sometimes He "surprises" us with results. Sometimes our children do not exactly make the choices we would expect - however can't we turn them over to God and allow him to take care of the red hot chili peppers?!!
On Friday Darla - Overcomer, Scott, Trina and Derek (check papa's blog roll) are coming to mama and papa's house for Labor day weekend. We are excited! I wonder if they think we are green bell peppers ??? What do you think ?? heh heh!!
Stop by - we may have some nice homemade red hot chili to serve you !!
