The past eight days have been joyous but busy ones for our family. It began with a triathlon in San Marcos last Sunday.
… and we hosted two wedding showers in our home — one yesterday morning and another this afternoon.
The showers and our first-meeting-anniversary put me in a wedding frame of mind, so I thought I’d share this printable with you today:
It isn’t exactly a Bible verse, but these traditional wedding vows are still very Biblical. After all, Jesus said, “What God has joined together, let no one separate.” (Matthew 19:6) And the only way that’s going to happen is if husband and wife are both committed to marriage in general and to each other in specific, and strive to live by the vows they make at the alter… for better or worse, as long as they both shall live.
Like coloring? Come back again next week — I post new coloring pages every Sunday. Or you can look here to download any of the pages I’ve published in the past.
If you’d prefer a bound collection, then try my “Color the Word” series. These richly-detailed, Scripture-based coloring books were designed with grown-ups in mind, but can be enjoyed by all ages. They are available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble, but for a limited time, you can buy directly from Prescott Publishing for a 30% discount. (Follow this link for details.)
And if you would enjoy journaling as well as coloring, check out my devotional journals for the best of both worlds:
Ideas for using these free printable coloring pages:
- If your younger children have a hard time sitting still through church, let them color these Scriptures during the Sunday sermon. Older kids might rather take notes with this printable.
- My children and I enjoy coloring these sheets together while my husband reads aloud to us in the evening. (For a special treat, I let them use my Prismacolor pencils — but only with supervision, as they are professional-grade and a little pricey.)
- I give these printables to my children during school time so they can color at the table while I work with their older siblings, and vice versa. (Since each of them has their own devotional journal, I’ll sometimes just assign pages out of that for them to fill in or color — that way, they get some handwriting practice, too!)
- I do one of several things with the pages once they’ve finished coloring them (and none of them wind up on our refrigerator): Sometimes we send them in letters to penpals. I might glue one into a child’s scrapbook or tack it on his bulletin board. Our littlest guys have even been known to frame them as a creative arts entry for the State Fair — there’s nothing like winning a ribbon and cash premium to motivate them to do their best job coloring future pages!
