Yesterday in children's church I asked the children what labor day means:
Grace - you can't wear white till spring
Mady - shopping
Savannah - the day off
just some fyi:
The first Labor Day parade was held in New York City
on September 5, 1882.
In the year 1894, Congress voted Labor Day a federal holiday.
What does labor day mean to you? What do you labor for?
Whatever you do, work at it with all of your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.
In Honor of Labor Day
