Because two are better than one...


A lovely long weekend of Diptychs...


...because two are better than one.
Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.  ~ Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

I'm counting thanks in community with Ann today - for "twos that are better than one"...
  • my husband Louis and my beautiful Emily, who still meet my every need - cooking, cleaning, making up the bed, and helping in a multitude of ways as my health improves each day 
  • Joyce C and Marilyn and the hearts-knitted-together journal of gratitude we share
  • crispy apples and sweet bannanas
  • grapes and cherries 
  • homemade yogurt and zucchini muffins from the bakery
  • fellowship and worship with the Body of Christ
  • purple berries trailing the fence and bringing beauty in a vase to the table
  • Louis singing grace - the only song he says he knows - to sleepy Addisyn on his chest
  • red brick churches and wooden backyard swings
  • summer's August greens and the hints of fall in the yellowing sweetgum leaves
  • afternoon naps and thunderstorms
