Two are Better Than One

14 Apr

From the Heart

Louise Gibson

 

 

People need people.
It is embedded in our soul.
Make reaching out to others
your foremost God-given role.

 

So simple, so painfully simple.
Two are better than one.
Two are more effective,
and, oh, so much more fun.

 

Friendships blossom over shared labor,
and we accomplish much more that way.
Open your heart to another.
See how it brightens your day.

 

Two are better than one for walking,
for if they fall, one will lift up his
companion.
But woe to him who is alone when
he falls, for he has no one to help
him up. Ecclesiastes 4:20

 

Two are better than one for working.
Two are better than one because they
have a good reward for their labor.
Ecclesiastes 4:9

    Lovely poem. I really like the scripture and usually include it in a wedding card. It’s very true and a lot of fun to work and play with others, and we like our solitude, too.

      THANK YOU, DIVORAN. I VENTURE TO SAY, NOW THAT i HAVE REACHED A RIPE OLD AGE WHERE SOLITUDE ISN’T REALLY A CHOICE, BUT A MATTER OF CIRCUMSTANCE, I AM ENJOYING A GOD GIVEN SERENITY THAT ALLOWS ME TO APPRECIATE THE TIME ALLOTTED TO ME.
