Let Your Light Shine Family 1 Mile Walk & 5K! Our biggest group yet! LOVE this!!
As I said yesterday before the run, I wasn't initially excited with the idea of doing gray t-shirts this year, but I think they turned out beautifully; I love the super bright yellow! And, to me there's a bigger message behind this t-shirt: Like the shirt, our lives @ times can be gray - dark, gloomy, and just plain ol' gray; unfortunately in t...his life we all have our low, dark, down, not-so-good times. But, then the sun comes powering through - just like the bright sun on our gray shirts - and just like it has for all 3 years we have had this event (just crazy - such a coincidence, not 😉⛅ ). In fact, have any of you ever flown on a dark, gloomy day? When your airplane gets above the clouds, it's as bright as ever; it's amazing.--That sun is actually ALWAYS there. And that's one reason why we call this our Avelyn SonShine Journey: SONshine - 'SON' for Jesus - God's Son. He is always there. Sometimes when I pray, I say "Lord be with (him)" or "Jesus, watch over (her);" the truth is He is already always doing these things; He is always there, just like the sun. Now when I pray I have tried to switch this to say, "Lord, help (him) to know You," or "Jesus, I pray (she) will have a relationship with You." Friends, He is always there, already. It's up to us to reach out to Him. I pray each one of you - if you haven't already - will ask Him into your heart so you will always FEEL that SonShine that is ALREADY there, even on your dark, gloomy days, weeks, months, years.
