Coloring Like A Kid

12 Apr

I love it. I love coloring. It brings me back to a place I haven’t been in a long time. A childlike place. Sometimes when I babysit, I’ll beg the kids to color and I’ll end up coloring my page long after they lose interest.

My friend Liz Roddy told me about this book “Praying in Color.” I haven’t read the book yet, I just took a risk and started writing people’s names in markers and then writing words next to them that I thought of and drawing lines and dots. It was so helpful to get it out into one place. It became therapeutic for me, actually. I was able to focus and suddenly, praying was actually kind of fun and not some other part of my To Do list.

A short entry but I thought I would share anyway. Have you colored your prayers lately, if ever? I hadn’t either. I have a feeling I’m going to like it though! 🙂
