Labor and Rest

Labor Day is the time we celebrate the American worker and their contributions to our society. It has also become the unofficial end of summer. During this three day weekend we have the opportunity to rest from our Labor and enjoy the final festivities of the summer season.

Entering this Labor Day weekend I was desperately in need of rest. My mind, body and soul were drained. During one of many quiet moments this holiday weekend I remembered Matthew 11:28 – “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (KJV). While I am responsible for the physical and mental demands of my job and life, what a joy to know that I could always find rest in the Saviour.

I am thankful for the time off, the opportunity to rest and renew mind, body and soul. I am most thankful though that I can always find rest from my labor in the loving arms of the Father.

I hope that you too are resting from your labor this weekend and enjoying a happy, holiday weekend.  Happy Labor Day!
