Our lawn is yellow. This is not an unusual occurrence in the summer. In fact, it is a usual occurrence for our lawn in the summer. That’s because generally we don’t sprinkle. We don’t have underground sprinkling so we have to schlep a hose around the yard and then turn on the water in order for it to get wet. That seldom happens.
I prefer to think that if God had wanted a lawn to be green he would have sent rain. It really is, from a theological perspective, somewhat presumptuous of us to water our lawn. It’s as if we’re saying that we don’t trust God. The way I see it, you can tell how holy someone is by seeing how dry and yellow their lawn is in the summer. I am clearly the holiest guy on the block.
By the way, this often works in the winter as well – I trust God to send sunshine to clear my driveway of snow. Yup, it’s all a matter of having faith.
