Day 12 – A picture of something you love.
I know I went on and on about not being attached to things in Day 07, and I haven’t changed my mind. But I do love this rosary. In fact, I wrote about it at Sarah Reinhard’s blog in a guest post last year.
It currently keeps me company in my car, wrapped around the rearview mirror. I usually take it with me when I travel or if I find myself with the opportunity to take a quiet walk. Maybe I pray with it, maybe I don’t, but its weight in my pocket is a comforting reminder of greater things.
Here’s an excerpt from Sarah’s blog that explains how I got the rosary after an evening of knot-making:

It is certainly modeled after a greater Love.
