Isn't coloring amazing? I remember coloring LOTS in elementary school. Unfortunately, the further we rise into adulthood, it becomes a lost art. The plethora of adult coloring books out there helps to remedy that problem. Have you indulged yourself in one of those? The intricateness of the pages draws me in for hours or even days as I set it aside for household responsibilities only to come back later where I've left off. It's.so.relaxing.
I recently started perusing the Restore My Soul coloring book devotional journey by Ann-Margret Hovsepian. Love it. Here's the things that set it apart for me...
1. There's a Scripture and a devotion to go along with each coloring page.
2. There's a prompt to reflect on as you color each page.
3. While there is detail in the drawings, they are such that you can actually finish them in an hour or less.
4. It's Jesus focused!
If you want to rest, slow your life down a notch, and creative space in your brain, I highly suggest purchasing an adult coloring book with some fresh, new pencils, and I highly suggest that the one you purchase be Restore My Soul. It's a great way to add some freshness to your times with Jesus. He's a creative God, so I imagine bringing creativity into our times with Him absolutely delights Him.
