Ecclesiastes 4:9&10

9Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.10For if they fall, viagra the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

 

On Sunday my friend Monica came over for dinner and to help me get things organized a bit. And boy did I need it.

I had actually decided that I needed to get to work on it on Saturday. I was tired of the boxes, viagra trash, and unneeded stuff all over the place. The mess made me feel like a hoarder, which I could not stand, so I asked (more of a told in this case) my husband to watch Neylan for me so I could get something accomplished in it. Well wouldn’t you know, I GOT IN WAY OVER MY HEAD and I GOT DESPERATE.

When we went to sleep on Saturday night, the room looked like a TORNADO went through it. I was that tornado.

In the past I had contacted some people to come help me, and I was more than willing to pay. Friends and family offered to help but, as I can understand because of my busy life as a mother, plans fell through. Just how how desperate was I?

I sent Monica a message at 5:14 PM begging for her help. I got a phone call back saying that she would love to help me; she just needed to get herself pulled together. She then called me back and asked if we could do it on Sunday since we already had dinner plans.

She came over on Sunday and we got to work. We worked for about 6 hours with some breaks in between. She picked up trash, separated my husband and my stuff into boxes and bags, and helped me fold laundry and organize my shelves! There is still work to be done, but the amount of work and help that she gave me made in so the rest of it will be easier to go through and more manageable with my baby-driven schedule.

Which brings me back to the verses at the top. Ecclesiastes 4 talks about how life is so much harder to go at by yourself, at least that is what I get out of many of those verses.

“Two are better than one”– My room is testimony of that. We both worked so hard to actually see some change and I was so happy to see what I have see of it so far.

“because they have good reward for their labour.”- What was our reward? Seeing a change in the mess that we went through. Dinner that we cooked and shared together. The fun and the conversation that we had while we worked. The energy we expended and the feeling of a healthy tired at the end of the day.

“For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow:”- I fell. I was not only caught up in my abyss, but I was also in a pit of frustration. We really should not let our situations influence our emotions, but for some reason they always influence mine. As Monica pointed out on Sunday when she lifted me out of my abyss and the pits I was in, we really need to be mindful of what we let bother us and we need to change it if we can.

but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.“- This does not just apply to my physical situations. It also applies to the spiritual situations that we all seem to find ourselves in. My Christian neighbor came to help me when I was in a tough situation. She helped me like Christians are to help each other and those around them. She was a great example of Christ.

After a lot a bit of help.

Thank you, Monica, FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART,
