Philippians 4:12

Fact: The grass is not greener on the other side of the fence.

But today did you find yourself standing on your tiptoes, trying to get a better view of the landscaping? Did the shrubs appear neatly arranged among decorative pavers with a patio furniture set from Pottery Barn?

We tend to imagine our lives to look like they are staged and ready for a catalogue photo shoot. But as we go through life, we realize that suddenly we are not so photogenic. Am I right?

Or can we claim to be more like Paul, who writes; "I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want."
-Philippians 4:12
