Thank you for being there

 

Who can appreciate the value of the volunteer?
Without volunteers, our hospice would disappear!
Lovingly they come in and freely give assistance:
Volunteers are truly a blessing, and heaven-sent.

Thank you for volunteering-- 
Thank you for being a blessing,
Thank you for your kind words,
Thank you for for being there 

In the U.S. all of our armed forces are volunteers:
And because they want to be there our country perseveres.
Purposefully they enlist and freely give their lives:
Our soldiers are truly a blessing, and we survive

Thank you for volunteering-- 
Thank you for being a blessing,
Thank you for your kind words,
Thank you for for being there 

After a disaster, the spirit of the volunteer arises,
And God works through those people and needs are supplied.
Lovingly they come in and freely give assistance:
Volunteers are truly a blessing, and heaven-sent.

Why would anyone volunteer to help out and work for free?
You never know when time will come when you are in need.

Thank you for volunteering-- 
Thank you for being a blessing,
Thank you for your kind words,
Thank you ... for being there...

I know you care.

Luke 6
[38] Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

John 15
[1] I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
[2] Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
[3] Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
[4] Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
[5] I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
[6] If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.
[7] If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
[8] Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
[9] As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
[10] If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
[11] These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
[12] This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
[13] Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
