“As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you.”
Isn’t that a beautiful promise?
I spent several days last week caring for seven of my grandbabies while their mother was out of town. She spent 10 days out of state visiting her ailing father, and I kept the kids during the hours my son worked.
The six boys stay with me fairly regularly, but I was a little concerned about their baby sister, as she hasn’t completely weaned yet.
Mercifully, God answered our prayers, and she behaved beautifully. She remained happy and content all week, despite the fact she was suffering from a bilateral ear infection at the time.
I did my very best to comfort her like a mother. And it worked — at least until my daughter-in-law got back. Once the baby saw her Mama, nobody else would do!
I hope your Mother’s Day is filled with joy and comfort and sweet times of fellowship with your family. If you like these free printable coloring pages, come back next Sunday. I post a new one (almost) every week!
Ideas for using these coloring pages:
- Help your little ones stay quiet and still in church by letting them color Scripture during the Sunday sermon. (Older kids might prefer taking 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 coloring pages to my younger kids/grandkids during school time and let them color at the table while I work with older siblings, and vice versa. (Since each of them has their own devotional journal, I sometimes 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 these 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!

Until next week, happy coloring!
