WOW! I know it has been over a year since I have posted anything - life has been busy and unpredictable this year. And that my friends is an understatement! Maybe soon I will come back and fill you all in on what has been going on in my life. But tonight I want to offer something up to you all. As you all probably know Adult Coloring Books are all the rage these days. (and I love them!)
I have been doing some doodling as part of my prayer and worship time. For some reason I was drawn (no pun intended) to doodle houses. Each house had an address on it that went with the scripture I was meditating on. I also wrote out the basic meaning of the scripture as I doodled. This was not typical for me since I hate my handwriting and I am no good at fancy lettering. I did about three little houses and ran out of my favorite blender pens, and so I just kept doodling without coloring them in. Then a friend suggested I scan in my houses once they were all colored and let her try to publish them as greeting cards. I was certain they were nowhere near good enough for that.
Then one day as I was doodling I realized that my sketch book had turned into an "address book". I felt as though God was telling me to share these with people uncolored as a coloring book and a way to meditate on His Word.
And so, here we go. Here is my "Address Book" full of little houses for you to color while you meditate on God's Word. To download them simply right click on the image and hit the "save as" in the drop-down window. They will print out on 8.5"x11" paper or cardstock.
Here are a few of my doodle houses that are colored in for you to see. There are a total of 10 houses plus the cover page for you to download.
Updated - just added this one today (10/15/15) because I am so filled with thankfulness for how God is using these little houses and how kind everyone's comments have been!
. . .But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD."
(this one has a space over the window to add your family name)
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him
For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light
Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.
Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them
I hope theses will be a blessing to you and I would love it if you would let me know you downloaded them in the comment section.
Till we meet again. . .
