The 31 Bits family is GROWING!
This is our favorite kind of blog.
We have some big news to report. The best kind of news.
First of all…
THANK YOU friends and family:
For your support, encouragement, jewelry purchases, events, house parties, and of course sporting your Bits and spreading the story. Because of your help in contributing to a better life for our designers and their families….
We feel extremely blessed to tell you that 31 Bits has expanded from 35 designers…to 60!!!
That’s 25 more women we have the priveledge of giving a sustainable income. Our minds whirl when we do the math and think about all of their family members and the amount of people this will effect. One income can provide food, shelter, send children to school, and enable the designer to dream about a future of hope and possibility.
Our women truly are examples of a (Proverbs) 31 woman!
10-31 A good woman is hard to find,
and worth far more than diamonds.
Her husband trusts her without reserve,
and never has reason to regret it.
Never spiteful, she treats him generously
all her life long.
She shops around for the best yarns and cottons,
and enjoys knitting and sewing.
She’s like a trading ship that sails to faraway places
and brings back exotic surprises.
She’s up before dawn, preparing breakfast
for her family and organizing her day.
She looks over a field and buys it,
then, with money she’s put aside, plants a garden.
First thing in the morning, she dresses for work,
rolls up her sleeves, eager to get started.
She senses the worth of her work,
is in no hurry to call it quits for the day.
She’s skilled in the crafts of home and hearth,
diligent in homemaking.
She’s quick to assist anyone in need,
reaches out to help the poor.
She doesn’t worry about her family when it snows;
their winter clothes are all mended and ready to wear.
She makes her own clothing,
and dresses in colorful linens and silks.
Her husband is greatly respected
when he deliberates with the city fathers.
She designs gowns and sells them,
brings the sweaters she knits to the dress shops.
Her clothes are well-made and elegant,
and she always faces tomorrow with a smile.
When she speaks she has something worthwhile to say,
and she always says it kindly.
She keeps an eye on everyone in her household,
and keeps them all busy and productive.
Her children respect and bless her;
her husband joins in with words of praise:
“Many women have done wonderful things,
but you’ve outclassed them all!”
Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades.
The woman to be admired and praised
is the woman who lives in the Fear-of-God.
Give her everything she deserves!
Festoon her life with praises!
Thank you! We can’t say it enough! And stay tuned…. we are on the verge of some very exciting opportunities.
