“I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only love.” -Mother Teresa
Have you ever experienced joy, pure joy? If not, you may want to hang out with some of the most loving humans on the planet at Night to Shine. I have been volunteering, taking photos at this event for about 4 years now. I look forward to February of every year because I get document this epic night. A night filled with joy, laughter and good ol’ fashion fun!
“Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs ages 14 and older. This February 8, 2019, Night to Shine will celebrate its fifth anniversary! On one night, 655 churches from around the world came together to host Night to Shine for approximately 100,000 honored guests through the support of 200,000 volunteers!” (https://www.timtebowfoundation.org/ministries/night-to-shine)
Tonight is the night where many people with special needs gather at Family Worship Center in Pueblo, CO dressed in their best and have a prom night experience. Tonight, I get to hang out with some of the coolest most loving people in Pueblo. Tonight is the night I’m reminded what joy and love really is.
Every life matters, every life counts, every life has a divine purpose.
