Thank you to one of our favorite Catholic musicians, Sharmane Adams, for submitting the following wonderful idea for Lent. Sharmane shares the following:
I have an idea to offer to CatholicMom.com It is a Lenten calendar for your children. My kids and I made it together. Each day of lent we gather together and say a prayer. The prayer is this:
"Oh, Jesus, I give you today, all that I think and do and say, Oh Mary, I love you and pray, more love today than yesterday. Oh God, be with me today. Be by my side forever to stay. Amen. Then, we have intentions that my husband and I pray for .. for that given day of the week.
Here are some ideas we do: Tables, Pictures on the walls, pages in newspaper, trash cans, trees in the yard, napkins in the drawer, etc.
One year we were staying in a hotel and that particular day, the
children had to count doors. They counted hundreds of doors. It was
so much fun! My children are now 8 and 10 and they still look forward
to doing the calendar every year.
