Jesus said to his disciples:
“Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest” (Mark 6:31).
On this Labor Day, our quiet place may not include spectacular scenery.
But we can always stop for a few minutes.
To breathe out a word of thanks for God’s gift of life.
And to thank him for the privilege of providing work that helps order this world, and that expresses, if only humbly, something of his love and grace.
May you be blessed this day with God’s own gift of deep rest.
