As promised in my last post (Hey! That's TWO posts so far this week!), I want to tell you about my current jewelry project. It really is something special so I will first give you a little background. Just a few miles down the road from our home is the international headquarters for Mercy Ships, a global outreach whose mission it is to bring "hope and healing to the world's forgotten poor."
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
The organization's first hospital ship was the Anastasis, which was in service from 1983 until it was retired in 2007. Beautiful, isn't it?

The project started with a commission for five necklaces, all of the same basic design, using different accent beads and embellishments. This is my favorite of the first five.
The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.
