Happy Labor Day!

Have you ever wondered what Labor Day was all about? For most people, Labor Day has become a ritual of sorts indicating the end of summer and time to go back to school or back into “work” mode.

But it is really more than that. The Wikipedia defines Labor Day read more of it here:

Labor Day in the United States is a holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It is a celebration of the American labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.

This is a great definition because without workers: blue collar, white collar or no collar, we would not have a country. So today, as you barbecue or join in whatever activities you are doing today, take a moment to pray for all the workers in our country – including yourself!

Also, while you are at it, please say a prayer for all those who are unemployed or underemployed. There are so many people struggling to get by (us included) and to provide for their families.

God bless you and your family today and always.
