At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.
Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.
All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. ~ Matthew 11:25-30
There will be some folks who work today. Policemen, firemen, rescue and medical workers.
And at least three American Red Cross volunteers, looking after the needs of Hurricane Gustav evacuees from the New Orleans area, housed in the Family Life Center at my church.
Keep them all in your prayers, if you will.
They are meek and lowly in heart. And they could use a lighter burden.
