Here is the next group of coloring pages for the Writing the ABC's on Little Hearts series. You can find the pages for letters A-J here.
K is for Kindness, and we have a picture of a little girl offering a cookie to another little girl in an act of Kindness. This is one of my favorite pictures, as I think the girl with the cookie looks so sweet. And that's an important part of Kindness - a sweet and gentle attitude to go along with our actions.
L is for Listen, and we have a group of children who have stopped their playing to Listen to their father who has come into the room. They have turned away from their toys, and are making good eye contact with Dad, and they Listen to whatever he has to say.
M is for Mercy, and we have a big brother faced with an opportunity to show Mercy as his little sister has broken his airplane. She is very sorry and has come to him in sadness, but he gives her a friendly hug and all is forgiven. We talk about how we have many opportunities to show Mercy to others throughout the day, forgiving all the little wrongs we suffer. The Lord's Prayer tells us that God will forgive us as we forgive those who trespass against us. It's also never too early to teach little ones that God is an Ocean of Mercy, always ready to forgive our sins, no matter how large or small or frequent or ugly they may be.
N is for Neatness, and we have a diligent boy practicing Neatness in putting away all his toys. They are lined up Nicely on the shelf, and all is in order. Neatness and order are pleasing to the eye and soothing to the soul - another lesson well learned young.
O is for Obedience, and we want our little ones to learn to practice right-away Obedience. A little girl is putting her book down and getting up to go to her mother as soon as she is called. Our inspiration for the picture is St. Therese, the Little Flower, who tells us in her autobiography she would stop reading as soon as reading time was over, not even finishing an interesting paragraph. Obedience often requires that we subdue our own wills to Obey those in authority. Children are obliged to Obey their parents, and we all in turn strive to Obey the will of God.
