Prayer Beads

I’ve got a few (actually a lot) of prayer beads but have used all of them as “Affirmation Beads”.  This is the first set that I’ve consciously created for the purpose of prayer and have used it as such.  I believe the following two pictures are self explanitory.  If you’ve got an additional view of each of the “quarters” please let me know.

I feel that the order of prayer should be North to East to South to West.  When my mother-in-law passed, I wanted to thank the Goddesses for her easy passing.  I found myself using the beads “backwards”.  From North to West and around.

You need to use/do what is right for your and your intentions.

Turtle Soup

On one day, prepare soup with meat from a turtle that is of medium-
size (the meat must be washed well). At that moment of making the
soup, saute a good amount of sauteed tomatoes in a frying pan with
butter and cayenne pepper. Cut the meat into pieces and put it on
the fire in the broth. Add tomatoes and cayenne
pepper that have been passed through a sieve. Add a
laurel leaf, pepper, cumin, salt, a bit of cinnamon, nutmeg,
oregano, fresh basil and parsley. Finish cooking the
soup with it covered. Upon serving it, pour in it some dry wine and
a pinch of sugar.

Main Dish: Peppered Goat
Cut into quarters goat meat (or the goat itself if you have one) in
very big pieces. Season it incrusting (or inlaying… I think that
they mean season this on the inside, kinda like a marinade) with
pepper (spice), ginger, and basil. Leave it for 5 or 6 hours in the
dressing before cooking. Allow it to brown by setting it over the
grill. With brush strokes, add garlic sauce constantly. When the
meat has been browned, cook it with dry wine on a moderate (medium)
flame. Right before it finishes cooking, prepare garlic sauce with a
lot of pepper (spice), garlic, lemon and basil and cover the meat
with it. Maintain the fire (continue cooking it) until it softens. (more…)
