Free Family Advent Activity Calendar List

I was inspired by St. Teresa of the Andes to make this little Advent Calendar thing. Please feel free to print it out to your hearts desire. :)
My family has always had the tradition of putting one piece of hay into a little manger for every kind act we do during Advent to prepare a soft place for Jesus on Christmas day. This Calendar is a variation of our tradition but gives specific ideas of things to do for Jesus.(and you can still incorporate the tradition of putting hay in the manger.) It is nice because it works with any schedule. You can do as many or as few things a day as you want and there is no one set thing to do each day.
As Mother Teresa said, let us take God at His word, What we do to the least of our brethren, we do it to Him.

I wish everyone a very hopeful Advent and a Joyful Christmas this year!

God blessings and Peace to all!

After reading a book that listed Mary's 10 primary virtues, I got an itch to write them down somewhere I could see them and meditate on them. Here is where I decide to write them, on an old piece of Oak floor board. When I read them, it feels like a prayer and I hope they inspire and touch your heart like they have mine.

An early Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! We have so much to be grateful for. God please help us to always have a grateful heart, especially when it is hardest for us.
