I am moving on…

Life is good.  I am not going to waste one more day, minute, second on what could have been.  I am so blessed by God and the Holy Spirit with their grace.  Life has been so challenging for such a long time.  I really can’t believe that I have made it this far w/o just giving it up.  It must be prayers.  I say the rosary almost daily.  Even though I sometimes think it isn’t working, I sit down and and pray it anyways.  I have a prayer corner in my room that brings me great peace.

I will tell you a story about my rosary.  I bought a new rosary in the spring.  One of my favorite things to do is to go to Wheaton Religious, a Catholic store and just peruse all of the books and Rosary’s.  The beautiful religious statues, the holy cards, the Angel’s and the saints.  I always spend too much money when I go in there but I love all the trinkets.  I’ll usually have a nice lunch out too.  It’s a day trip for me, a treat.

 The Rosary I bought was a Divine Chaplet of Mercy Rosary.  The Divine Chaplet of Mercy is a prayer you say on the Rosary that prays for forgiveness for the world.  It is a very powerful prayer.  I use it for the praying the Rosary too.  My new Rosary that I purchased that day, when I got it home had a knot it.  This did not please me.  I tried and tried to get this knot untied.  The husband tried and tried to no avail.  So I put it back in the box and said well I’m just going to take it back and get a knew one.   Which I thought was a good thing because that is one of my happy places so another trip so soon, well that made me happy.

 I have always had a love for the Rosary.  It is a meditative prayer that it soothes and calms.  It also makes me feel like I am holding the hand of Mary and that brings me closer to God and his son Jesus Christ.  When I first started studying and reading about the Rosary, it talked about the miracles of the Rosary.  How some or the Rosary’s beads would change color or the chainlink would change color.  I always wanted a miracle with my Rosary’s but I never got one.  I figured I didn’t really need a miracle because I loved the Rosary with or without the miracles.

Then I started reading about another prayer/novena, Mary and the untying of knots.  That was the first time I’d ever heard about that.  Well I started doing that novena and praying to Mary to help me to untie my knots.  I loved it.  Here I was praying the prayer of untying knots on a Rosary that was tied in knots that I couldn’t get out.  One evening when the husband was working late, I sat down in my prayer corner and started to pray the Rosary.  It was the first time that I had prayed with that Rosary for a long time because I didn’t like the knots but I thought I would just do it because I had missed praying.  So as I was praying the Rosary I started fooling with the knot and trying to get it untangled.  Still it didn’t work.  I could feel the Holy Spirit pulling me back into the prayer. Forget about it and pray, concentrate on the mysteries the prayers.  So I did.

I finished with the Rosary and spread it out on my table  and right as I did that it fell into perfect shape.  Mary, Queen of Heaven, Un-tying the knots.  It was the most beautiful moment I have had with my Rosary.  She was with me and holding my hand and un-tying my knots.  I got my miracle with my Rosary.

“Hail Mary, full of grace the lord is with the.  Blessed art thou amongst women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus (bowing head).  Holy Mary, Mother of God pray for us sinner’s now and the hour of our death.  Amen

  1. I knew it the minute I saw the word “knot!” Our Lady of Knots! Thanks for the wonderful story, I loved it! God Bless, SR

    • It really was a special moment for me. I always remind myself of a statement, “For those who believe, no miracle is necessary. For those who don’t believe no miracle is possible.” Something like that ❤ Blessings
