Disclosure: This post is part of my week of giveaways.
I did not receive any compensation for this post.
(As a matter of fact, this one came out of my own pocket).
I just really love this book & I hope that more people will discover the joy of praying in color.
I’ve written several times about praying in color. I discovered the book several years ago and it completely changed my spiritual life. Doodling is something I can do almost anywhere. With a swish of my pen, I feel more and more covered with grace. I settle into a rhythm and listen deeply to the sounds around me. Pen across paper. Air whooshing through the vents. Clocks ticking. Birds chirping. The chatter of children in the background. Oh, the beautiful sounds of everyday life.
As I start at one end and draw around in swishes and swirls until I find the other end and I am reminded that forgiveness can bring us back together and make us whole again. Lines both thick and then reminiscent of the ebb and flow of life. A curve reminds me that the straight and narrow road isn’t always the best way, and that the curvy parts are sometimes the most beautiful.
As I fill it in with the tiny details, I find a hope that more beautiful things are to come. Swirling into a circle, I’m reminded that God’s love never ends. I especially love to write someone’s name and circle it, praying that they will feel God’s love surround them.
And as I begin to color it all in, how could I not think of the gorgeous colors in our world as well as the colorful people in my life (and there are a lot of you people with colorful personalities, you know)?
The Praying in Color book is an easy read and gives helpful hints on how to get started. The Praying in Color Journal is divided into sections like Intercessory Prayer, Lectio Divina, Making Amends, For Remembering, and more prompts to help you go beyond the basics.
