Widow's Mite Coloring Page (For the Feast of Saint Joseph)

 Apparently Saint Joseph did not want me to get any sleep last night or rather this morning because I woke up thinking of a widow's mite coloring page and projects.   I was more awake than usual at 3 a.m.  I have done some of my best art work in the wee hours of the morning. This morning my mind was in overdrive wanting to get started on making a widow's mite coloring page.   I know.  It's rather neurotic! Hee! Hee!

Child Jesus Valentine Coloring Page
