global advent calendar

Day 9 and still going strong! I am having tremendous fun with this, perhaps too much fun as I haven't purchased one gift yet and Christmas seems so far away that I don't even need to worry about it. Definitely more focus on the season of Advent, so if this project is measured by that yardstick, it has been a successful one so far.

If you haven't checked out the global calendar the monks are creating with everyone's pictures, make sure to visit their Advent Word page from time to time and take a look! You don't need instagram to see the photos; as the pictures are tagged, they are added onto the collage. Tremendous fun to look at mine mixed in with everyone else's and see how everyone is interpreting the word of the day. My dear friend Mrs. C., her husband, and two lovely daughters are also participating and it is even more personal, seeing what they come up with. What a wonderful way to connect this holiday season.

Keeping the age-old tradition and spirit of a reflective Advent season by taking advantage of modern technology and forms of communication: these monks are genius.

Sunday December 7: Show up
Just as I am, though tossed about, with many a conflict, many a doubt.

Monday December 8: Respond
Lift high your praise resounding, for grace and joy abounding.

  1. Well now, when was the last time you heard someone say "These monks are genius"??? :0). Wish I had seen this earlier in the season...SO crazy busy and I have fallen WAY behind in my blog reading. Hey...I think I *know* this mysterious Mrs. C :0).
    Hoping you all have a continued blessed and focused advent season.
