Are we really slaving away??

With summer approaching and the temperature rising we tend to complain a lot. Maybe not out loud, but still our sinful human nature causes us to think complaining thoughts.
 But if you think about it we really don't have that anything to complain about! We have lawnmowers, weed-eaters, hoses, tools made for us, seeds delivered to our door, and a glass of water always in the house! 
Compared to the 18th century when they hauled water, made tools by hand, and cut their grass with a sickle!
So when we think of our hard time planting our "large" gardens think about it and go read Farmer Boy or Little House on the Prairie! They were out planting whole acres of crops! And they didn't complain. Why? Because if they didn't - NO FOOD!! You starved!
