My husband and I both work too much.  That is a given.  On a given day I will get home about 5:30 and he will get home about 6:00.  I have supper going and we normally eat around 6:30 while watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?  Then one by one we go put our plates in the sink and one by one we each pick up our laptops and he begins to put in more hours and then I do the same.  It helps me stay semi-caught up because there is always some small “fire” to put out when I get there.  Freddie probably worked close to 70 hours last week, he is a salaried employee, no we are not rolling in that time and a half pay.  Somewhere in all that about once a month he has been working on a patio i designed and hopefully we can complete by 2011.  I have helped put down stone and marked stone where they needed to be cut.  I have hammered dents into stone so it wouldn’t have a flat line cut mark.  But in the end, we can look at each other and say this is a job well done.  We can have the pride you get when you finish a project that you put your heart in to.  Think of that here on earth and think how you feel when someone compliments your work…………..now think how much more to hear the words “Well done my good and faithful servant”.  I want to hear that from God.  How cool would that be?  So in the 8-5 job remember that we are here to exalt God and enlarge God’s family.  The person people see of you today at work could be the closest thing to Jesus they will ever know.  I know that like you, I want to hear that Well done, Kim, my good and faithful servant.  Go out and serve your God today!
