Expectation

Expectation is a funny thing.

I go to see movies with expectation level high.
Like Transformers.
People had raved, and I had waited 20 years since the last Transformers film
(that I watched at Haydn Pritchards birthday party at Midcity in 1987)

I was disappointed.

Tonight I watched Oceans 13.
I expected very little and was pleasantly surprised.
However, if I were to recommend this film to you, you would probably go and be disappointed.

Expectation is a funny thing.

However, sometimes the reverse happens too.
My expectation meant that I was always going to enjoy The Lord of the Rings.
My expectation meant that I was always going to enjoy King Kong.
My expectation meant that I was always ging to enjoy U2 in concert.

When I go to church and expect little of God, I find little.
When I go to church and expect much of God, I find much.
Usually.

What will tomorrow (Sunday) bring?
Expectation is a funny thing.
