The Joy of Coloring

My grandson just found out how much fun coloring is.



And that it's even more fun to color with someone, like your big sister.


And the finished project. His first coloring of Big Bird. I think it's a masterpiece for sure. His big sister helped. Isn't that just wonderful? Aren't they the cutest?

I am delighted to share my grandkids achievements with you. :) Kind'a like home movies, huh? But it brings me much joy.

"These things have I spoken to you, that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full." John 15:11

Many things exist for me to enjoy and color in the life that God gives. I imagine He smiles and laughs with joy when I find Big Bird sitting on the table all along, but I just wasn't ready for the colors yet.

In this time of turmoil in Haiti and the world, may we find joy, His joy in the everyday things around us, as we prayerfully remember them.

Remember to share your colors, it's more fun!

Karen, Again you have revealed truth in your own unique way. And I don't have to tell you how I feel about grandchildren. Good post

Such a sweet picture of them coloring together. Your grandson just looks like he is having so much fun. My youngest son does not enjoy coloring at all, and I so miss all the masterpieces he would be making for me! Bummer...

I love the verse from John, it is so easy to get mired down in the details of Haiti and just the world in general. We do have to remember there are a lot of wonderful things in our life to be so thankful for, and be joyous about.

I love this! And I love you for sharing it; thanks for brightening this dim, murky day.

Karen said...

Deb, I second that statement!

Clella, I know, grandkids are the bestest!!

Kate, aww that is a bummer! I feel the same way. My next few posts, Lord willing, are going to be on joy. I care deeply for the situation in Haiti, but to be depressed does no one any good. By the way, Kathy, the first comment, is trying to adopt twins from that orphanage that was on the news.

Jeanette, oh, I hope it did brighten yours like it does mine. Blessings**
