After rejoining the rat-race jungle out there, every holiday is more than “just another day” for me. Today is Labour Day. Since young, I have been wondering why it is a public holiday when it sounds more like a day to slog our hearts out. I also remembered a special “labour-day” for Renee when we were excitedly awaiting the arrival of our first child.
“Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest a while.” Mark 6:31 (NASB)
