Here are six finished Advent calendars from five different people. Thanks to the four people who shared their calendars with me. Of course, I would love to see others.
This first two are from friends Cindy O and Connie D. Cindy used phrases and words associated with Advent. Check out her websites Mostly Markers and Mostly Markers–Cards. Based on a book by Sarah Hornsby called Jesus Be in My Christmas: Morning and Evening Meditations for Every Day of Advent. Connie’s words on the tree calendar complete the sentence “Jesus be in my ______.” Connie’s blog is called Vintage Grace.
The next pair is from Linda S. and her daughter. “My adult daughter and I worked individually on both sheets, alternating days, to create a shared positive focus for family and friends and their particular situations.”
The last two are mine. On the tree I prayed for people. On the box calendar I meditated on the words from Scripture associated with Advent. I love to refer to my calendar during Christmas. Each day reminds me of who or what I was thinking and praying about.
Here is my completed Advent Calendar. I used a mixture of Advent word themes, names and situations to pray about, pictures and images to illustrate my Advent journey. Loved doing it! Thank you! http://revhillersblog.wordpress.com/2014/12/27/advent-calendar-2014/

It was my first time doing this and I *really* enjoyed the process! I’m planning to do it again during Lent.
Really nice. Thanks for sending it.
Have decided to carry on this way of journalling. Here is January: https://revhillersblog.wordpress.com/2015/02/03/january-doodling/
Nice! I love the yoga poses and the ordinary, daily life pictures. Thanks for sending the link. Peace,
