The Grass is Not Always Greener

Do you ever compare your love life with the movies or other people’s life? Do you ever wish that your man (or lady) was like someone else’s love? Stop it! Everything in your life is arranged by God for you. The choices you make are yours though. Don’t compare, complain, and possibly ruin your relationship trying to be like someone else’s. You don’t know what goes on behind their closed door. It may not be as “perfect” as it seems. Life isn’t perfect. It’s full of trials and blessings for everyone. You know the saying, “the grass is always greener on the other side”? It’s not. If you think that’s the case, water your own grass. Lol. Put time into your relationship. Spend time being a blessing to your love. It’s the little things that will matter the most.

Do you need some examples? My husband is not a romantic. (That’s seriously the understatement of the year.) But, he shows me he loves me in other ways. When I’m sick, he feeds my bottle calves for me. Instead of jewelry or flowers that wilt, he brings home a calf or chickens to me. (Don’t laugh! That’s the way to this farm girl’s heart! Lol) It’s the little things that matter. It doesn’t have to be a big extravagant gift to prove you love someone. Speak and give from your heart. Put God first in your relationships. Don’t hold your wife’s hand looking over your shoulder at someone else. Be faithful. Be true. Love big. The grass is not always greener on the other side.

Happy Valentine’s Day to all the love birds out there. God bless you all.

    Love this! My husband is the same way. No mushy hand holding, but he’s the kind of man to show his love through service, like washing the dishes or building me a massive chicken coop or sprain his ankle bringing home barn wood for a goat shelter. That’s my kind of love. Our pastor has said, if the grass looks greener on the other side, it’s usually because it’s growing over a septic tank. 😉
