September has arrived. The kids are back at their lessons. After tomorrow, our neighborhood pool will close for the season.
In some parts of our country, the nights are already growing cooler. The leaves are turning, the flowers fading, the grass withering.
It brings to mind this wonderful verse of Scripture, which I wanted to share with you in this week’s WORD OF GOD coloring page.
“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the Word of our God stands forever.” – Isaiah 40:8, NASB
Isn’t that an amazing comfort? To know that God’s Word is eternal and unchanging, just as He is?
This coloring page is also available in Spanish:
If you like to color, then come back again next week. I post a new coloring page every Sunday. Or you can follow this link to download any of the designs I’ve published in the past: Free Christian Coloring Pages.
If you’d prefer a bound collection, check out my Color the Word series. I designed these richly-detailed, Scripture-based coloring books with grown-ups in mind, but they can be enjoyed by all ages. They’re even available in Spanish!
For those who enjoy journaling as well as coloring, my devotional journals offer the best of both worlds.
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.)
- I give them 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!
