Piperlime's New Jewelry Store

One of my favorite online shoe stores -- Piperlime -- finally opened its new jewelry channel. Since I am saving up for a 64GB iPod Touch and for our trip to the U.S. in the spring, I doubt it if I am going to make any purchases soon.



Here are some of my favorite pieces.

GS Lillian 28" Multistrand Beaded Necklace


Kenneth Jay Lane Coral Multi Row Necklace


Kenneth Cole Hammered Drop Earrings


Aren't they lovely?

I stumbled upon a website today that I am excited to share with you. One of my favorite activities in the world is looking for clever ideas to decorate our home.

Vinyl Attraction uses text as wall decoration. The online store is owned my a Christian mom named Amy Holt. Love these samples:















I am so inspired!

From WE International Philippines: Please Help Typhoon Victims


Dear Friends,

240 people were confirmed dead, over 40 missing, and 340,000 are left displaced after the Tropical Storm Ketsana, locally known as Typhoon Ondoy, hit Metro Manila on Saturday, September 26, 2009. President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has declared a state of calamity in Metro Manila.

This coming weekend another storm is forecasted to hit the Philippines. Typhoon Parma has now been designated as a supertyphoon as wind speed reached 240 KPH. Its winds are forecasted to strengthen by 259 KPH by 8:00 am tomorrow morning, making it a CATEGORY 5 storm, the strongest on the Saffir-Simpson scale of cyclone strength. Such storms are capable of causing "catastrophic damage" and can blow roofs off residential and industrial buildings, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center. After typhoon Parma, another supertyphoon is predicted to hit the Philippines again.

Our team at WE International Philippines are working tirelessly to provide support and assistance to disaster relief missions. WE are accepting monetary and in-kind donations on a rolling basis to help those affected by the typhoons and floods.

I have been touched by the compassion that overflows around me as EVERYONE I know is contributing in some way to help victims of the floods. But WE still need your help. Hundreds of people are dying from starvation, illnesses and infections. And many have lost their families, their homes, EVERYTHING.

Please visit our website at http://www.weinternational.org.ph/typhoon-ondoy to make an online donation via PayPal, or contact me for information on where you can send In-Kind donations. Also, please help us spread the word on the situation here in the Philippines and what we are doing to help. I will be updating the information on the website daily so you guys know what's going on here.

Love,

Abee

Prayer Points for the Typhoon Ondoy Victims



RESCUE AND RELIEF EFFORTS
- Pray for the rescue and relief of those who are still stranded, cannot be contacted, or have been affected in any way.

"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea..." (Psalms 91:2-4)


GOVERNMENT AND EMERGENCY RESPONSE ORGANIZATIONS
- Pray for strength, presence of mind, resources, and communication as they coordinate relief efforts.


PEACE AND SECURITY
- Pray for peace and order in our country
- Pray against looting and other people taking advantage of the situation

"Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear." (Isaiah 59:1)


COMPASSION AND GENEROSITY
- Pray that the church will respond to the cry of its brothers and sisters, and give whatever is possible to alleviate their suffering.

"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." (James 1:27)
