“…Walk worthy of the vocation wherewith you are called.” ~Ephesians 4:1 KJV

You probably know that this American holiday was created by the labor movement as a way to celebrate the contributions of workers to our economy. Today, many see the holiday as the official end of summer and the start of another school year.
 
So, today I encourage you to honor those around you and the difference they make. Whether they are workers, students, parents, mentors, volunteers, or something else, we can all add something to our world.
 
And we can all embrace Paul’s challenge to live up to our fullest potential – to walk worthy of the vocation to which we are called.
 
Happy Labor Day!

    >Labor Day is one of those holidays that does double duty 'cause many of us labor at something. For example, today did double duty as Mother's Day cause we took my mom out for a picnic today. Today is a good day to honor men and women in the armed services or those who've died fighting fires or keeping our streets safe. Today is also a good day to give thanks for nurses who work in hospitals and nursing homes. (I'm a nurse,so you can expect me to neglect mentioning them.) And of course, we should be grateful for workers everywhere who are faithfully doing their jobs day in and day out, whether they service airplanes, manufacture cars or appliances, or whatever they do. I'm grateful for this holiday. Hey, I dig your photo too.

    >Hi Candee –

    I think if we all viewed our jobs as a service to others, we'd have a greater sense of satisfaction.

    Thanks for an excellent post.

    Blessings,
    Susan 🙂
