Work is Love Made Visible...

Work is love made visible. 
And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, 
it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple

and take alms of those who work with joy. 

For if you bake bread with indifference, you bake a bitter bread that feeds but half man's hunger. 

And if you grudge the crushing of the grapes, your grudge distills a poison in the wine. And if you sing though as angels, and love not the singing, you muffle man's ears to the voices of the day and the voices of the night. 

All work is empty save when there is love; and when you work with love you bind yourself to yourself, and  to one another, and to God.

                                                  -KAHLIL GIBRAN, THE PROPHET

I thought of this writing today, as I drove to work....right now I am supplementing my work with substitute teaching, which I am really enjoying. Many times in my life, I am asked - "but what do you do for fun?" What I do for fun, is enjoy life. I strive to find work that satisfies me, I love spending time with my family, and when my work is satisfying, I love doing it....
