Blessed Mother Coloring Page

Blessed Mother Coloring Page

In honor of Mother’s Day, I wanted to share this special Blessed Mother coloring page from my new devotional journal for moms, Sweet Child of Mine:

Dozens of free Scripture-based coloring pages from flandersfamily.info

The title of this new journal came from a poem I wrote for the occasion:

Sweet Child of Mine

by Jennifer Flanders

From the moment I met you,
Sweet child of mine,
I’ve carried you close to my heart
And tried to protect you
And teach you to mind
And point you to God from the start.

My heart overflows now
With joy from above–
Sweet memories of days spent with you–
With tender compassion,
With undying love,
With prayers God will carry you through.

For soon you will leave me,
Sweet child of mine,
You’ll spread wings and fly far from home.
And how it will grieve me–
This passage of time–
Though I’ll feel proud to see you all grown.

So, LORD, keep me mindful of
What’s on the line—
Help me cherish the days, one by one,
And use well my time with this
Sweet child of mine,
For I can’t get it back once it’s gone.

You see, as much as I would love for my children to “rise up and call [me] blessed,” (Proverbs 31:28) I long even more to hear my Savior say, “Well done, my good and faithful servant. (Matthew 25:23)

But in order for that to happen, I’ve got to use well the time He has given me to do the task I’ve been assigned. Which right now means lovingly and faithfully training my children, teaching them, and pointing them to Him.

Ideas for using these 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!
