Shine is a party that Flatirons Community Church (my church) puts on for people that may not get to go to the party, prom, homecoming or anything along those lines. We believe we should reach out to everyone… and that includes people with special needs. This year over 1,000 guests and 1,500 volunteers joined in on this special night.
Guests were fitted for dresses and tuxes weeks prior to the event so that they could look their best for this unforgettable night.
The night of guests were treated to a dinner, able to get their pictures taken, participate in various games, and then dance the night away on the dance floor.
Each guest was allowed to bring one caretaker too, which was catered to and pampered that night as well.
It’s an incredible event that humbles you and reminds you that even though life may be difficult at times, you can always chose to SHINE.

Observed since the early 1900s, International Women’s Day has become a global day of recognition across developed and developing countries alike and in some places like China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria today is a national holiday. Every year on this day thousands of events are held to inspire women and celebrate the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.
Women — take a moment today to reflect on what it means to be a woman today.
Men — take a moment to reflect on the women in your life.
Mothers, daughters, sisters, friends, lovers, and so many more — we are women! The more united we are, the stronger we are.
Let’s make everyday International Women’s Day!

At the heart of each of us, whatever our imperfections, there exists a silent pulse of perfect rhythm, which is absolutely individual and unique, and yet which connects us to everything else. —George Leonard
In fact — the same chemistry that buffers the pH of our natural waters is at play in our bodies, working with our respiratory system to control the pH of our blood. If you desire to know more, research carbonic acid chemistry for further evidence of our dynamic connection to this world in which we live.
