August 2012 Recap

Happy Labor Day!  I think it is a holiday that we may not think of as first in importance, but considering how many people are needing work in this country, I hope that we remember how blessed we are if we do have work.  And pray for those that need work… and then enjoy your day off from work, go figure!
