Advent Daybook - Day 11


Bring fresh, clean water to the crib.  Avoid every untruthful word and every deceitful act.  Dearest Mary, obtain for me true contrition for my sins.

Bible Verse:

Be constant in prayer.

Thoughts from Mass:

Our Lady didn't create the Word but she bore Him in her womb and her heart magnified Him.  Does my heart magnify the Lord?

Advent Activities:

Today we celebrated the feast of the Patroness of our homeschool group by going to Mass.  After Mass the kids went downstairs to partake in some Mexican hot chocolate and breads while I ran Mr 12 yo over to our home parish to serve for a funeral Mass. 

Later in the afternoon Ms 16 yo and I went to get a few gifts at the mall and then meet some friends for a good cuppa joe and some long overdue conversation.

The rest of the day found us wrapping up 350+ bars of soap for a soap fundraising project the girls ran.  Lots of great smells going on in this house today!

God Bless!
