Context: Today’s and tomorrow’s prayers form a linked pair:
Now he will heal us (Hosea 6:1; NLT).
Heal all living souls,
And guide us
To your narrow way.
Teach and strengthen us
Until all seek your face,
And say: I love you.
My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, LORD, I will seek (Psalm 27; 8; NIV).
I love you, LORD; you are my strength (Psalm 18:1;NLT).
The rosary-making project
Most of the materials I need to make rosaries arrived yesterday, to my delight. The main piece of kit I don’t have yet is the special rosary tool, which is coming all the way from America.
In the evening I enjoyed making a practice chaplet representing one decade, as seen above. I really need to sit by an expert to learn this craft, especially as my brain can’t distinguish between left and right for making the knots.
However, I managed to add some beads to a little cross on a cord, which I bought from a lovely lady in the UK. My addition is very simple indeed, but I’m still very pleased with the result!
