High Coo – September 5 – Happy Labor Day


Labor Day is a federal holiday in the United States celebrated on the first Monday in September to honor and recognize the American labor movement and the works and contributions of laborers to the development and achievements of the United States.” See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Labor_Day

Today’s haiku: Happy Labor Day

Sometimes short and sweet

sometimes much more challenging:

our labors of love

For a beautiful perspective on work, play and love please check out Sister Mary Lou Kownacki’s blog: Old Monk’s Journal https://www.monasteriesoftheheart.org/old-monks-journal/journal-entry-256 which contains this quote from Brother David Steindl-Rast:

“too easily we are inclined to imagine that God created this world for a purpose. We are so caught up in purpose that we would feel more comfortable if God shared our preoccupation with work. But God plays.”
