Labor I

Work is no disgrace. The disgrace is idleness. (Greek proverb)

On this annual Labor Day, we celebrate the workers of the past who have made continual improvements to the way we can live our personal and community lives today. Thanks, too, to the laborers who continue to provide not only the necessities of life but all of the “extras” that make life more enjoyable and worthwhile.

And people should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God. (Ecclesiastes 8:13)
