Here is a great way to focus on and praise God. Go through the entire alphabet and assign an attribute of God to each letter. For example: A = Almighy, B = Beautiful, C = Compassionate. Some letters will be difficult, such as Z, but it really helps you think about who God is. You can also turn it into a time of prayer and thanksgiving.
The grass is not always greener on the other side. Rich Rodriquez was flourishing as the football coach at West Virginia. Last year a bigger, better school came calling, Michigan. He smelled the money and ran for it! Well, he has learned that the grass is not always greener. Last year his team only won 3 games, a colossal failure for Michigan. Now there are allegations about how he handles practices. He is under a lot of heat. If he does not have a great season, he may be out of a job. If he would have stayed in West Virginia, he would still be high on the hog. I wonder if he regrets his decision to go to Michigan. Only time will tell. Remember – the greenest grass grows on septic tanks. Think about it.
