Fun Friday Give-away!!!

Today's Reading: Matthew 26:57-75 
Find the Reading Plan here.

Two things you need to know this Friday morning. Yes, just two.

First, I want YOU to participate in our annual Madison in May 5K.

So, you haven't ever been in a 5K, you say?

Great reason to check that off of your bucket list!

Walking or running or crawling (your choice), surrounded by your SHINE girlfriends...is there a better way to do a 5K? I didn't think so. ;)

Here is the link. Go, register. Bring the family. Wear YELLOW if possible! We want to SHINE together! (and plus, I just really, really love yellow) :)

Let me know if you plan on attending. Bring your friends, your enemies (just kidding), your family, your bible study group, your co-workers, whoever! Just come! The route is beautiful! If you have never been to Madison, Ga...you need to come. Plus, I really want to meet more of you!!! (selfish, I know)

We will take a lot of pictures, so you need to be in them!  (Be there by 7:00 am if possible, race starts at 7:30)

Okay, second thing...

Are you ready for this?

OOOH, I can hardly contain myself!

We have a SHINE Girls Give-away!

My super incredible friend, Kim Jaynes, donated this beautiful prize!

Want to see it??
The verse written on the bracelet is our Memory verse from this week....
Jeremiah 29:11.
Yes, I know. It's awesome!
(that's Kim's beautiful hair-less wrist)

My really greedy fleshy stingy side wanted to keep it. I decided I better not. You know, since it has a scripture on it and all. ;)

Here is how you can win this beautiful bracelet to show the world on your darling little wrist....

Tell us what you LOVE about Spring!

It can be one word, one sentence, a paragraph...whatever! Make sure to leave your name so that I can contact you if you are the winner! I will draw the name some time this weekend.

Here is mine for example: I love the warm air and the blooming of flowers all around! Jill Hill

I don't usually leave the comment section open due to spam overload,  but I will on this post. If you have trouble leaving a comment, email me at shinegirlsshine at gmail dot com.

So, what's your Fun Friday Challenge you ask?

Register for the Madison in May 5K, and comment below to win this prize!

My Friday is now complete. A 5K with my girls, and a cool bracelet to give away. Ahh. Welcome Spring!

    My favorite things about spring is the warmer weather (usually - lol), spring flowers, and getting my toes done because I can now break out the flip-flops! But my most favorite thing about spring is the Easter season and getting to really soak up all that love Christ had for me when He died on the Christ and rose again to forgive all my - little ole me - sins!! Amazing!!

    I hope everyone has a most amazingly blessed spring!

    I love Spring because it's beauty and love all around. New life and new beginnings. Spring makes me happy to be alive and ready to face the day.

    Longer days, sunshine, clean cars, and sweet tea.

  10. Sweet new life... Flowers, trees, animals. Spring is a fresh new start. I love planting seeds and watching for the tender new shoots to emerge.

    Wish I could join you for the 5k. Go Yellow!!!

  11. Spring is all about new beginnings! I love to walk around the yard and show my girls all the flowers that are popping up after hiding all winter. I love seeing my family all dressed up for Easter. But most of all, just a chance to remember Jesus' new beginning when He arose out of the tomb for me!! Happy spring!- Tina Snipes

    What I love about Spring..... I love the hint of warmer weather yet still not blistering hot. I love the blooming of beautiful flowers and how the color around us is all coming back. I don't like how it affects my allergies haha but I do love the beauty Spring brings. Have a blessed weekend!

  16. The sounds...I love the sounds of spring. My racing, busy thoughts suddenly become aligned with the tweeting of the little birds and then comes PEACE!-- Kelly Benise
