Whatever is Lovely

From Amazon...

Color your way to peace and worship.

We live in such a busy, hectic world—but what waits for you inside this cover is a way to quiet the noise, express creativity, and spend some sweet time with God. Each page features an original design from one of a dozen different artists, beautifully illustrating a contemplative quote from an inspirational writer, a beloved hymn, or Scripture. 
When we create, we echo the heart of our Creative God who designed everything and gave us the capacity to recognize beauty. 
So go ahead! You have permission to pick up your colored pencil and be reminded of truth in a fresh way. 

My thoughts...

I love this coloring book.  I mean honestly...all those years I spent coloring in my children's books when I could have had one of my own!  The pages are fun and challenging, but not too difficult for after a long days work.  The scripture and quotes are beautiful, just what you need for relaxing and de-stressing.

I've tried to keep this book hidden from my daughters (twin 11 year olds), I was so excited to finally have something that was all mine.  :)  But, as luck would have it, one of them stayed home from school sick yesterday and evidently found it.  She called me on the phone to ask if she could color a page...and the selfish Mom that I am, said no, I haven't even colored in it yet!  She was quiet for the longest time (I knew this meant she had already done the deed).  I asked her if she already colored a page in it, and she said yes.  But, she said, it's really beautiful, I think you'll like it.  I let her know we would discuss the matter when I got home from work.  Once I arrived home, and checked out her artwork, she was right, it was beautiful.  She said she completed the 2nd page in the book so I would always see it when flipping through...now who could get upset with that reasoning?  It may not have been the colors I would have picked, but it's a beautiful page with scripture to remind me it's the little things in life that matter most.  

I give this book 5 stars and highly recommend it as a gift giving idea.   And while you're at it, make sure you order extra if you have daughters at home!
