Two are better than one

My husband and I for a second evening have spent time gardening.  The British weather has been beautiful, sunny and warm so gardening is the most obvious job to do on a day like this.

The garden in a fair size and takes so much work.  I normally garden alone but I never actually have the opportunity to do everything I’d like to do in one gardening session. 

My husband’s help yesterday and this evening was invaluable and it made me recall a verse which says;
‘Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labour’.

If it wasn’t for my husbands help I wouldn’t have understood once again how true this verse really is.

Happy Friday Friends!

One response to “Two are better than one

  1. You two have discovered something that most people will never understand. The fact that men and women were originally created to work together. That a couple would find joy in the same way the persons of God found joy in creating and say “it is good” at the end of the day. Many seem to think that the real joy in marriage is found when we are relaxing and taking a holiday from work but its actually the opposite. We are created to work together and enjoy that process with no greater expectation that being able to say “that was good.” The writer of Ecclesiastes is commenting on the early chapters of Genesis and noting that even thought we are now plagued by thorns and thistles the original beauty of the garden still shines through. We shouldn’t work to get to a future goal (retirement or financial security) for that is an exercise in futility. If we can enjoy the daily rewards of the day and enjoy our work together we have everything that Adam and Eve had in that first garden.
    “Go then, eat your bread with gladness and drink your wine with a joyful heart for today your work is blessed by God. Put on your best clothes, use your finest perfume and enjoy each futile day of your fleeting life with the people you love for these pleasures are God’s gift to you in your toilsome labour under the sun.”
    Enjoy your garden and each other. God is still walking there in the cool of the day.
