October is the month of the rosary. We're encouraged to say the rosary daily for world peace.

Did I ever tell you that my father makes rosaries? He made these two for Rich and me. It's a way to keep his hands busy (along with whittlin'!) Send me an email (amy at inspireco dot com) if you're interested in getting one for yourself. He gives all the money directly to his church. I don't think he even takes out anything for the beads and supplies.
Anyone can say the rosary. You don't have to be Catholic. It's a very lovely meditative prayer that does bring you closer to God.
Starting tonight, probably after dinner, Rich and I will say the rosary together. We're still very new at saying the rosary so we have to have a cheat sheet nearby with the mysteries and other prayers we don't yet know by heart.
Happy October 1, everybody! I don't know where in the world September went. It was so sneaky and fast and quiet. Oh, and hot. That's what really tricked me!
