>Rainy & Relaxing Labor Day


(Having trouble getting videos to load, so added some photos until I can figure it out)
While tropical storm Lee may have altered our plans to spend the weekend at the lake, it did not alter our ability to have fun! One of the benefits of a large family is that the party is always where you are! Last night Cole ordained today as family talent show day with performances to begin when the three little ones woke up from naps. Everyone quickly began planning their wardrobes, talents, etc. and went to bed filled with excitement. This morning was spent prepping, practicing and primping and then the last little one finally woke up from his nap and the show could begin! This is the finale and is actually what my den looks like at some point most every day 🙂 No lack of entertainment around here!
Below are the individual performances, which are probably way more that you ever care to see of my family but I’m posting it anyway for my benefit and for an easy find next year when we hopefully have a repeat performance and can compare!
Hope you enjoyed a wonderful and relaxing Labor Day with your families!
Today as I pondered “Labor Day” these verses came to mind. No doubt we all “labor” but may we labor for His glory and know that it is not in vain! What a glorious and encouraging truth, especially at the end of a long, and exhaustingly fun day 🙂 The Lord has a special path and plan for each of our lives! No two are the same yet all are part of His perfect plan and I’ve enjoyed reflecting on all the ways I labor on a daily basis and if they are truely for His glory of if it’s for mine. After a wonderful sermon on Sunday on idols it has been a weekend full of evauation and reflection and I am so thankful for the many areas the Lord has revealed where I need to make changes. Always under construction! So thankful for pastors and a church body who loves us enough not to leave us where we are but to lovingly preach and teach us the truth for our benefit and His glory!

John 6:27
Do not labor for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you. For on him God the Father has set his seal.”Philippians 2:16
holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor
in vain.

1 Corinthians 15:58
Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.
