Coloring Fun: Essence of Love

Risking Rosita’s scolding for a late delivery of fresh blueberries, Zeke took time to listen to God’s creation greet the morning.

“Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.

And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word.

But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.

And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:

But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”
Luke 10:38-42 KJV

Coloring Fun: Midnight

Choosing to sing loudly instead of yelling for help, Harriet and June discovered a resonant echo as they sang away their fears.


“And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.

And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.”
Acts 16:25, 26 KJV

Go, Tell It

sharing faith

The upset villagers could not stop the grateful pig farmer from talking about the power and love of his Savior.

“Now the man out of whom the devils were departed besought him that he might be with him: but Jesus sent him away, saying,

Return to thine own house, and shew how great things God hath done unto thee. And he went his way, and published throughout the whole city how great things Jesus had done unto him.”
Luke 8:38, 39 KJV

Final Trumpet

o death, where is thy sting?

“O death, where is thy sting?”

“Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”
1 Corinthians 15:51, 52 KJV

Future and a Hope

scraps of hope

Later that night, Cream used scraps from the banquet meal to rescue a scraggly cat living in a city dumpster.

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
Jeremiah 29:11 KJV

Peace in the Storm

faith in action

A squall surprised the crew, who feared the injured calf would sink the boat. Instead, he slept peacefully through the storm.

“And, behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves: but he was asleep.

And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us: we perish.

And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.”
Matthew 8:24-26 KJV

Before crossing an inlet in Alaska, Moose found space on his fishing boat for an injured moose calf.

“But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.”

To Be: Peacemaker

beatitude: peacemaker

Moose finally inspired Prickles, a valentine gift to June, to uncurl when they discovered a mutual love of watermelon.

“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”

Starry Night

brightest star

On trail rides, when Zeke awoke to the night sounds, Rosita challenged him to find the brightest star in the night sky.

“When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.”
