Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, 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.
‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭4:9-10‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Happy Tuesday!  It’s a great time to try something new!

This morning my husband awoke me with a funny question.  “Did the Pope like his sandwiches?”  I started laughing because I knew what he was talking about.  I often walk, talk and laugh in my sleep.  It’s a good thing I don’t have any secrets!  I’m not catholic, but last night I dreamed that the church didn’t have enough wafers for everyone taking communion, so I made the Pope jelly sandwiches.  Turns out, in my dream at least, the Pope can not eat jelly.  It’s too sweet.  So, I then set about making peanut butter sandwiches for him.  He kindly refused all my sandwiches.  My husband said that I wasn’t upset about the refusal, because I was laughing.  It’s so funny where our mind goes when we are asleep.  I don’t think I’ve even thought about the Pope.  Funny!


So, for today’s memory verse I chose Ecclesiastes 4:9-10.  Yes, we are supposed to help our neighbors as much as possible and we chat about this regularly, but don’t forget about yourself.  When you are tired and weary, take care of yourself. We can help more people when we take care of ourselves, than when we are tired and run down.  Joel 2:25 says that if you have faith, God can restore you.  So, while you are meditating on these verses, take a few moment and schedule in a little time every day for you.  Restore yourself.  Don’t reject this gift like the Pope did my sandwiches in my dream.


The verses today are posted with all the memory verses discussed in this blog in the ScriptureTyper app under the group Hisperfecttiming.

Take care and God bless you!

  1. Truth! I have found when I do something to care for myself—sleep, regular exercise, and even writing—I’m more joyful and more giving than I would be otherwise. Gotta stop trying to pour from an empty cup!

  2. Amen! I love giving and helping others. Let’s all remember to love and help one another because its better to give than to receive😇 God bless you! Much love! Xxoo

  3. i learned this in the past that truly we do need each other. at one time i thought i could cope not going to church and watch and listen to preachers on t.v… there is nothing wrong with that but i was becoming lonely and could not grow to the required level. so i truly thank you for sharing this. we do need each other.
