The Reward of Volunteering is "as big as LIFE"

Although I was born and raised in the "Volunteer State" I never volunteer for anything. The only thing I can remember volunteering for was the military, and as soon as my time was done...I got out! However, this year, I had a strong urge to volunteer with the AIDS Walk in Atlanta. Since I had never volunteered, I really didn't know what to expect but I decided to check it out. Since it was my first time, I decided to bring along two friends of mine for support. Actually I didn't give them much of an option! Thankfully for me, they were up to it.

When we finally completed our volunteer work, we talked about the different tasks that each of us had, and how we were glad that we volunteered. One of my friends, began telling me about a lady that she met named Deb. She told me that Deb does lots of volunteer work and had lost many friends to HIV/AIDS.

Then, she says "You should meet her". I'm a very outgoing guy but I always get nervous at the meeting of people. She then says " I think she would be a very good interview for When We Speak". That's when I decided to put my nerves in my back pocket! She takes me over to meet the lady and we begin to talk. Deb tells me a little about herself and her story, then to my surprise she goes into her bag and pulls out a book....she's also an author! I wasn't aware of that! She pulls out a copy of her book "Three Grim Fairy Tales and a Happy Ending" and signs it for me. At that moment, I knew that God had sent me to the AIDS Walk for a reason and that it was part of a divine purpose for me to meet Debi Lowry.
