April 20: Volunteer Recognition Day

Today we celebrate volunteers of all types. Let volunteers know how much you appreciate their hard work. Then, if you don’t already volunteer somewhere yourself, go find something and get to work. Whether it’s cheering up hospital patients, providing disaster relief to tornado victims, or cleaning up the highway, volunteer work helps both the receiver and the giver.

Personally, many of my favorite projects are those that are personal (mowing a neighbor’s lawn while he/she is sick), but there are many marvelous organizations doing great work. Whatever you decide, today is the day to get involved, and tell everyone you know “Thanks for volunteering.”

“Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men,¬†because you know that the Lord will reward everyone for whatever good he does, whether he is slave or free.”

Ephesians 6:7-8
