Labor Day

My grandson Oliver is enjoying a relaxing moment watching cartoons, waiting for his dad to come home from work (yes, work today!) and bring him and his mother to a BAR-B-CUE.

Time for rest; time for play
We celebrate on Labor Day.

Throughout the year we give our best
We each deserve a little rest.

The days and weeks and years march on
Work well done an unspoken song.

We thank you Lord for giving life
Even when work seems more like strife.

In work we have a chance to show
Our talents perhaps, but surely to grow.

Interrelating and doing our jobs
Helps us remember we’re an important cog.

On the wheel of life we turn and go on
Fulfilled when we say
"A good job we've done."

Prayer by Susan Helene Kramer
