The grass is always greener…

We have all heard the phrase…

“The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence”

This phrase popped into my head today as I was walking by the football stadium and football practice fields here at the University.  I was noticing the rich green of the artificial turf. So I added on to the phrase…

The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence… especially if it’s artificial turf. TURF!

How often are we unsatisfied with our own situation and think that others have it better? We could be longing for a greener pasture that looks beautiful from a distance, but once you step on to it – it is purely fake. We may actually gain nothing by crossing the fence, well at least in this case.

That is really all I had – just a summary of my thought while walking by.

  1. How often dissatisfied? Very often! Oh to be able to say, like apostle Paul, I have learned in whatever state I am to be content.
