Joy of Labor

Labor Can Be A Joy

In The Joy of Working, Denis Waitley and Reni Witt wrote: "When you take responsibility for your thoughts, your work habits, your goals, your life, you'll find you're creating your own horoscope for success. Once you sow the seeds--being true to yourself, taking control, and accepting responsibility--you'll reap a harvest of fulfillment and joy."

There are heart aches for the working man. We must remember the miners and the working soldiers. God bless these men who both have given their lives in providing a living for their families and protecting our country.

There are many joys of labor. It may be the job we go to each day, the taking care of a ill friend or loved one, or our children we brought in to this world via the ultimate of joy of labor - birth. Whatever yours might be, this is the time to rejoice!
