5 Everyday Places to Use Your Wrist Rosary
It’s amazing the amount of responsibilities and distractions we have each day that take attention away from what’s really important. From doctor’s appointments to taking the puppy to the vet. From meeting deadlines for work to buying gifts for a friend’s son’s 1st birthday, I find myself bouncing from one task to the next trying to get everything on the task list checked off. But no matter how busy I get and no matter how hectic the week can be, I know there’s no excuse for not devoting enough time, energy and devotion to prayer. It’s one of the many reasons why I love making, wearing and sharing my Wrist Rosary bracelets. They’re designed to be beautiful reminders to take time out each day to pray the rosary and stay in prayer. Here are 7 Everyday Places to Use Your Wrist Rosary.
1) Waiting Rooms – You’d be amazed how much of our time is spent each day just waiting. On average, Americans spend approximately 32 minutes waiting to see their physician. Rather than playing Candy Crush or Angry Birds, this is a great opportunity for me to pray the rosary and keep those struggling with health issues in my prayers.
2) Airport Lines – Unfortunately, the world we live in has made it a necessity to remain vigilant and spend a lot more time waiting on security lines as we travel. Recent surveys show we spend approximately a whopping 28 minutes waiting on TSA lines with no relief in sight. Once again, this is a great time for me to pray the rosary. From those traveling with me, to those charged with getting us safely to and from our destinations, I take this time to pray. The functionality of a rosary that is always on my wrist makes these everyday times that more convenient.
3) Waiting For A Table – I love to go to great restaurants here in Central Indiana but let’s face it…if you hit the peak times like weekends or after rush hour, you can be waiting anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes for a table. Just last week it took about 15 minutes for us to get a booth at Famous Daves midweek and after 7pm. It was relatively empty at the time but there seemed to be some miscommunication between the hostess and the wait staff that had us waiting long enough for vigorous apologies. What a great time to pray the rosary and reflect on the abundance of His grace and mercy.
4) When He’s Getting Ready – I love my boyfriend ‘to the moon and back.’ Sometimes, however I do find myself waiting for about 10-15 minutes while he’s getting ready.
5) The Checkout Line – For the life of me I still don’t understand the purpose of big box stores having 18 checkout lanes. I can’t remember the last time I was at Walmart and saw more than 3 lanes open at once. Rather than complaining, I can use my rosary bracelet while I wait for my turn at the checkout line.
The best part of having a Wrist Rosary is the functionality its design brings and the convenience it provides. As I go about my day, I try to find more places and times I can use it to remain in prayer.
