It is Labor Day week-end and a time for picnic’s, family gatherings and getting in the last vacation day’s before the end of summer.
Are we really thankful for our job’s or do we just complain each day? It is time for me to take a new look at myself this Labor Day and count my blessings.
Our worship service was really fun this morning and we learned a lot about each other. Each person was asked to wear their work clothes or something that was symbolic of their job. My job revolves around the yellow pages print, online advertising and direct mail. Idearc gave us some promotional material and I wore my SuperGuarantee yellow cape. The people in the medical field wore their scrubs and told a little about their job. We have mechanics, students, teachers, lab techs, farmers, and too many more to mention. It was fun learning more about the people we worship with each week.
Basil Hudson, the pastor (and my husband) reminded us we need to be as prepared for our spiritual work as we are to our daily jobs. There are many ministries within the church and workers are welcome. We need to be more than “sponge Christians” that just soak up and never give back with our talents. Many churches are full , but the workers are few.
Finding balance between job, family and God is essential in my life. I want to evaluate my life and set new goals. Labor Day has helped bring this need to my attention.
I want to walk my talk.
