I cut the lawn for it’s first time this year a few days ago. It was lush and green after all the recent rain and warmer weather. Spring had arrived and thoughts turned to warmer days ahead. How many times I’ve wondered what it must be like elsewhere in other people’s lives. Is their grass any greener than mine? Is it worth the journey to find out? I suppose we all think like this now and then. At the end of the day we will find that our lives are not much different than anybody else’s. Their grass is just as green as our’s, our’s just as green as their’s. The fundamental things we share are just the same. It sometimes appears that other people’s situations are better than our own but you’ll find the same old problems in their lives as we have in our own. They have weeds in the grass just as we do. Read Ecclesiastes, the whole book in the Bible to understand the futility of many things we do. It will fascinate you, I promise.
