“What burden did you bring to the conference and how can we pray for you?”
That was one of the questions during Spill the Beans in Blountville, Tennessee this past weekend.

If you’ve never been to an FGF, you may not know that not only do we give the sisters a venti size portion of fresh grounded truth, but we also find out what they want to know. We ask them to write down their questions and, then, we sit around the bistro table and answer… We spill the beans!
When my son Clayton was 14, he took violin lessons. My husband, Phil, would take him, wait for the thirty minutes, and then the guys would drive through McDonald’s and arrive home with french fries in hand.
But, one Thursday, they were a whole hour late! I checked the time and started to get concerned. Then, I heard the garage door.
Anyone out there ever feel like you just can’t meet everyone’s expectations? Anyone? Oh girl, I do.
We can get pretty stressed out when we feel like we fail to meet other’s expectations for us…
We can’t volunteer for that fund raiser. We don’t call or write that loved one as often as we should. We can’t keep the house clean enough, or the fridge full enough, or the calender empty enough! The list goes on and on.
Expectations come in many forms, but one thing they have in common is how we feel when we don’t meet them… downright lousy!
