Day 143. Why IS That Grass Always Greener?

You hear it ALL the time. Statements like…

“I wish I could”….

“I am vicariously living through you…”

“I will be happy when….”

“If I can just get through this, then…”

I have said them myself all too often.

I wonder why it is so much easier to spend energy wishing for something we don’t have, or some goal we wish to accomplish, rather than being oh so perfectly content with where we are in our life.

Content with our circumstances, our surroundings, our talents, and even our shortcomings.

If God is the perfect Creator of all and has a perfect plan for each of us….THEN it stands to be true that we can rest assured each day that we can do our part to be obedient and give the rest to Him. I hope this year as I am learning that in my own life, my kids are seeing it happen as well because…

Running, wishing, striving, controlling brings chaos…

Skipping, dreaming, living, and letting go brings peace…

I choose the latter….even if the grass over there does appear to be greener. The funny thing is when I look right around me, it’s pretty green around here too.

Now there is just 27 school days left until summer.
