  • Back when I wore a size 14 petite, I had a pair of black pants that were mislabeled as a size 12 petite.

    I called them my mercy pants, although I'm not sure why. At the time I figured that when you're 5-feet, 1-inch tall and wear a size 14 petite you need all the mercy you can get.

    But that's just silly.

    What's not silly is the concept of mercy. I think of all God's attributes, I love his mercy best. At least that's what I plead for most often. "God, be merciful to me, the sinner."
