With almost 10% of the work force unemployed in our country, Labor Day is just another day off for many.  We are a nation founded on hard work.  Most of us enjoy working hard and gain great satisfaction from the jobs we do.  Some of us even have to work on Labor Day if we are in the retail business.

Labor was instituted by God when He placed man in the Garden of Eden.  He gave Adam charge over all the animals and plants and gave him the job of caring for them.  It wasn’t until mankind succumbed to Satan’s lies that work became difficult and sweat producing.

Work is a good thing.  It’s especially good when you’ve gone many months without a paycheck.

As we enjoy this Labor Day let us thank God for giving us the ability to work – for providing jobs that will help others – for keeping us healthy enough to continue doing the work we need to do to survive- for looking after us, even when we don’t have a job – for giving us fulfillment in the work we do – and for giving us the most amazing commission ever … spreading the good news of His great love for us.



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
