Milk and Honey – rosary, bracelet

(1 customer review)

$28.00$67.00

Two stunning options of a vintage bronze and soft yellow and white rosary or modern silver and bright white and yellow rosary both recalling God’s promise to the Israelites to give them a land flowing with milk and honey.

Scroll down to the bottom of the description for bracelet sizing suggestions and to learn about the meditation for this rosary!

 

Both options are extremely limited, especially the vintage version, as I can no longer get those centerpieces and crucifixes.

 

In the unlikely event that this rosary should break, simply gather all the beads you can find and email me. You only pay for shipping and the replacement of missing parts; major beads and the medals.

Description

A land flowing with milk and honey is how the Promised Land is described to the Israelites. God promises abundance, not just the necessities like bread and water, but those things that make bread and water even more enjoyable; milk and honey.

He hears our needs and answers them.

He answers them in abundance.

May this rosary be a reminder of that promise. Especially when it seems God is ignoring our prayers or putting obstacles that are insurmountable.

When the Israelites made it to the Promised Land they found the inhabitants to be as large as giants, and they despaired, refusing to believe that God could help them. They thought if they trusted God, they would only be lead to ruin, or that God was actively planning their downfall.

But after the 40 years in the desert as punishment for their lack of faith, Israel, lead by Joshua, finally entered the Promised Land and time after time were victorious in battle.

Trusting God. Following His Will. Not despairing. Keeping the Faith.

God is a good, good Father. He is with you. He is present, now and forever, amen.

White beads for purity, hope, faith, and, of course, milk, paired with succulent yellow (vintage) tiger eye or vibrant honey-tipped czech glass (modern), either version speaks volumes about the promise of abundance.

——–

At 16-18 inches long, with 8mm beads, these rosaries are about the same size as a standard rosary. The rosary is assembled with 49-strand steel beading wire, crimping beads, and wire protectors, so it is super strong.

Because this rosary is made with stone beads, it has a weight to it and retains ambient cooler room temperate, which is really awesome to feel when you’re praying; it always made me focus more on what I was saying. And then as you pray the stones warm up from your body heat.

Please remember that all things can break with excessive use. Under normal, conscientious use, this rosary will last a very long time, but, for instance, if you keep this rosary in a tight pocket every day, all day and get it crushed under you or against something, the small glass spacers can break and the steel wire will be under strain and can stretch and even break.

These repairs can be made, and I would be delighted to do so, but as time goes on, I might not have extra beads or I might be gone. So do be gentle and take good care of your rosary.

___________________

With a little bit of practice, you can easily undo/redo the clasp on this rosary bracelet so you can pray it anywhere. The short strand of beads makes it perfect for holding it in the palm of your hand and keeps it from getting caught on anything.

On the bracelet you have the Benedictine Crucifix (protection against demons and temptation in general) and the Miraculous Medal (Mary asked that all wear it).

Stylish, practical, and comfortable, this rosary bracelet has been my go-to rosary for months.

Bracelet measurements – I found the best way to measure my wrist size is to use my phone charger cable because it simulates the thickness of the beads when on the wrist. Wrap the cord around your wrist and make it a comfortable size. Mark (pencil/pen/sharpie) the cord, then measure it flat.

Choose the bracelet size closest to your measurement, rounding down as the beading wire will relax and get larger with constant wear, especially with showering.

7″ – The size in the photos on my wrist. Fits snugly directly against the skin.

7.5″ – what I’m finding to be the average wrist size.

8″ – larger wrist size.

Feel free to ask for a specific size if these don’t work! Extra beads are added between the crucifix and clasp and are adjusted to order.

Your Impact

For every order, 10% of all proceeds will go to organizations who provide resources to at risk women before and after birth.

The first is The Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford. They area a local organization to me,  providing resources and care for free to women in crisis pregnancies, from ultrasounds to parenting classes to post abortion healing.

The second is the Sisters of Life, a newer religious community founded in 1991 in New York to promote the dignity of every human life. They have houses for women to come live with them during and after their pregnancy as they get back on their feet, as well as counseling for post abortion healing, and other missions.
