Cheer Up the Lonely Coloring Page

Cheer Up the Lonely Coloring Page

Since today is “Cheer Up the Lonely Day”, I’m sharing a coloring page which fits that theme. Have you ever noticed there’s a special day for just about every activity under the sun? Fortunately, cheering up the lonely is an activity upon which God places great importance. We can tell by reading James 1:27:

“Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.”

Visit Orphans and Widows in their distress

Of course, you don’t have to be a widow or orphan to struggle with loneliness. If you open your eyes, you’ll undoubtedly notice lots of lonesome people who’d enjoy being cheered up.

  • a college student in your church who finds himself far from family and friends
  • the young mother down the street who longs for adult conversation
  • a homeless man on the street corner who’d appreciate a cold sandwich and a warm smile
  • a military wife whose husband was deployed last week and is missing him terribly
  • the foreigner who lives in the next apartment and knows only a little English

Why not color a pretty page and enclose it with a newsy letter to a lonely loved one? Or print out extra pages, pack up your colored pencils, and visit with the residents of a local nursing home while you color together. You can find lots of designs to choose from by following this link: Free Christian Coloring Pages.

There is no shortage of lonely people in the world. Do your best to brighten the lives of those you encounter — not just today, but every day.

More Ideas for using these free printable coloring pages:

  • Do your younger children have a hard time sitting still through church? Let them color these Scriptures during the Sunday sermon. Older kids might prefer taking notes with this free 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. The younger ones color at the table while I work with their older siblings, and vice versa. (Since each of them has their own devotional journal, I sometimes just assign pages out of that for them to fill in or color. That way, they get a little handwriting practice, too!)
  • I do one of several things with the pages once they’ve finished coloring them. 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!
