M is for Mercy

"David said to Gad, “I am in deep distress. Let me fall into the hands of the Lord, for his mercy is very great; but do not let me fall into human hands.” (1 Chronicles 21:13 NIV) Do you yearn for mercy? Or crave forgiveness for something you did yesterday—or years ago? Is the offended person long gone from your life? Did you ask and your apology was rebuffed?

Donegal is famous for Donegal Rugs, which closed in 2003. Their rugs have complimented homes ranging fr

J is for Jewelry

Jewelry communicates. It whispers and shouts. It waves banners and flags. It reflects joy, heartbreak, memories, and causes. When you change emotions, you change jewelry. Does your jewelry ever reflect one or more of the following? Everyday Fun. Do you have a hobby? Wear jewelry indicative of your creative passion. Someone may comment, perhaps a kindred spirit. Geographical Preference. Remember a vacation spot or a location you yearn to see. Showcase your family roots. Where do your family and friends live? Sentimental Feelings. Do you wear a locket in remembrance of someone? Or do you wear jewelry given to you by someone special? Support a Cause. Organizations support worthwhile causes rang
