I start some things that SEEM
like a great idea for Visual Faith practices,
but don't always follow through.
Anyone else like that?
4 calendars-for Advent.
BUT, they were all so different
and I DID have 4 devotionals
I was anxious to read.
Bev Wicher designed this calendar.
I used a Frederick Buchner devotion called-
Moving Toward the Manger.
I pick out 4 colored pencils before I start -
and those are the colors
I use for the whole calendar.
My friend -
Sybil MacBeth designed this calendar.
I used a Henri J. M. Nouwen devotional called-
Jesus- God's Promise.
Sybil also designed this calendar-
I love all the space to add extra doodles
and tangles in prayer time
around each space.
Pat Maier designed this calendar.
I read Chad Bird's Glory to God in the Highest.
For me this year- it was a bit different
in a recovery mode with cataract surgery
on both eyes and not driving anywhere.
So I had a bit more time to do 4 calendars.
don't I have great and talented friends?
I loved the words, the prayer time,
and the heart of Advent in this practice.
Thanks Lord, for your blessing
of faithfulness to bring it to completion.
