Volunteer final

"I slept and dreamt that life was joy.
I awoke and saw that life was service.
I acted and behold, service was joy."
~Rabindranath Tagore

It is said that the greatest joy comes from giving and serving. Focus on supporting others in your life without expecting anything in return, you'll think less about what you want and find join the act of giving and serving.  This giving, loving, serving person is the real you.

I woke up this morning to this quote on the "Project Happiness" blog.  Whether we give an hour of our time, or years of dedication and commitment to an organization, the common denominator of volunteering and giving back is the joy we receive when giving to others.

I feel like I have barely scratched the surface on volunteering, bu hopefully you have been inspired to dedicate some time and to give back to someone, something, or an organization that stirs your heart!

Community Churches
 The United Way 
Area Hospitals
 Big Brothers Big Sisters
Habitat for Humanity...

I could go on and on.  There are countless organizations that desperately need people, warm human beings to help fulfill their mission.  

You can be that person that makes a difference. 

 "If you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
    and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the darkness,
    and your night will become like the noonday."
Isaiah 58:10
