Labor Day weekend is here! Three cheers for the worker rebellion of the late 19th century! Hip, hip!
Seriously, this holiday that gives us a little extra rest came from a time of riots in New York City. Then President Grover Cleveland and Congress rushed through a National holiday in fear that the newly formed Unions would bring the US economy to a screeching hault.
There's an economy joke in there somewhere, but I'm too lazy to grab it. Happy holiday!

ARTIST OF THE DAY:
This Wilson, NC native has a powerful voice, and a heart for worship. Seriously, her album does not do her justice. Live, you will not believe the big voice that comes out of the tiny little girl on stage!
On September 1st, Meredith and her husband Jacob welcomed their first child into the world. Maverick Elijah Sooter weighed in at 8 lbs 2 oz and 21 inches long! Congratulations Meredith and Jacob! And 400 bonus points for naming your son Maverick! That is awesome!
She's a Liberty University grad, just like Joy In The Morning's Rodney Baylous. We'll have to get them together and see if they know the words to their Alma Mater's fight song ...
