Labor Day – A day of needed rest

Today in America, we celebrated Labor Day, which pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894.

Today is a federal holiday and most people are off from their jobs…but many are still working. We live in a country, here in America, that has a hard time just resting.  Rest is so necessary for our overall well being, emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically.  

Today, I am reminded in the reading of one of my favorite scriptures, Matthew 11:28, that I can bring my heaviness to God and He will give me rest.  August was a heavy month for me and I got through it with finding much rest is the ultimate giver of rest.

Today, do something you REALLY love! For me, today will be filled with watching the US Open Tennis Tournament…I’m a tennis buff! 

Today, just take a day…and rest.

  1. I like your blog. Sorry to hear that August was a challenging month, but I hope September is easier on you! Love your thoughts on rest. I do my best to rest every Saturday and if I get too busy on that day, I swear I start to feel it later in the week, lol.
