It's Off To Work We Go

Ah, Labor Day. The sign summer is over. No more lazy days at the beach. No more camping in the mountains. It's back to work!

Labor conjures up negative images for most. TGIF (Thank God It's Friday) has become our nation's slogan. We've even named restaurants after the slogan! We work during the week so we can play on the weekends.

God ordained work. He said, "Six days shall you labor."

Even Adam and Eve worked by tending the Garden of Eden. Of course, it was easier before the fall. No weeds!

Work isn't an ugly word. When we complete a job successfully, it gives a sense of accomplishment. Work can stimulate the brain and the body.

So, enjoy your holiday today. Kick back. Relax. Have fun. But, don't dread tomorrow. Just thank God you have the ability to work. Some would love the opportunity.

Thanking God for the ability to work, Gloria
