for the week of Sept 8, 2015


On this weekend of Labor day, we are grateful for the gift of having a job.  For jobs that provide us a way to maintain our lives, families, and homes we appreciate to opportunity of work.  May we. each day, appreciate health and the opportunity it provides us.  When others  are unemployed and struggling, help us to remember they may need our encouragement and support.  For those who no longer work, or who are retired, may they look back on the working years with joy and fondness.  O God, every day we are provided the opportunity to see our daily responsibilities as gifts, or burdens.   Today, we lift our voices in praise and appreciation for our lives that include work and health to perform it.
