Washed Out Wednesday

If your enemy is hungry, feed him. If he is thirsty, give him a drink. Doing this will be like pouring burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you. Proverbs 25:21-22

Do you know about Three Kings Day if not this website explains it very nicely

Today is wrapping day for me. Just two gifts one for each of my grandsons. Maybe I will take a walk if it warms up enough and possibly create something nice either make a craft or make a small drawing an ACEO today. I am trying to think of things to do to stay busy. I am "on call" for Nana duty until Christmas Eve. My son is going to be working hard and not taking any days off and my DIL can't take time off at all. I love being a Nana and my two grandsons are the light of my life. Praise Him for the best gifts ever!!!!!!!
