Labors

Watercolor, 8” x 10”
Private collection

The bee is among the garden’s hardest workers. Its most obvious product is its honey. Yet the bee plays a much more essential part in our lives: many of our crops would not bear fruit, were it not for the bee’s work as a pollinator. In Christian tradition, the bee is a symbol of industriousness, the epitome of the tireless laborer.
Each of us has our work in the world. Doing the work for which we are intended brings us money, health, a happy family life, or social standing; but most importantly, it brings us the happiness that comes with finding our place in Creation. Work is food for the spirit. The soul cannot be truly healthy without it.

Work is love made visible.

Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
