Expectation vs Reality

I'm dying right now - LOL!

    Whenever is see 'DIY' [do it yourself] projects, the caption above is what flashes thru my head.  I did cut my own bangs when I was young once and time does heal some mistakes.  Sometimes our 'foolish wisdom' is displayed more than we would like to admit.
    I wonder if this caption could also be viewed as how we see ourselves vs how God sees us?  Take off the makeup and get down to our bare minimum.  Is our heart as pretty on the inside as we show it to others?
   What does God 'expect' from us?  Micah 6;8  ''He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.''  Can you make those 3 things a 'reality' in your life?


  1. It's interesting that just this morning I was reviewing life. Ever do that? The one thing that I can do instead of living continually with regrets about some things is to thank God that I am His, He is mine, and He has and will continue to use those things that I regret to humble me and to turn them from future regret (in eternity--I'll probably live with them here) to my good and His glory. How? I don't know, but that doesn't matter. He is Lord. Praise His Holy Name.

  2. Anytime I try to "DIM" (do it myself), I tend to mess it all up. We are told to "wait upon the Lord". How much better off I would be if I didn't try to "fix" things before I give Him a chance to work it out for my best and His glory!! Thank you, sweet friend. Love this the picture....what a great analogy! You are the BEST at that! Your forever friend, T.
