A tiny bit of faith... it is needful to grow and abound!!! A dainty daily reminder to look into Jesus
Made from Plants, Rooted in Love ✿ Every one of our @madebyminga
bags is made from CACTUS. The artisans weave each design using an all-natural cactus fiber called Cabuya—one of the first plant fibers processed for commercial use.
bags are then botanically dye use specially prepared, chemical-free dyes made from handpicked, native plants of Ecuador. The women seek out the plants, create the dye blends, and cook the cabuya fiber over a fire in their homes.
Next, the magic happens—Weaving the bag. The women work from one of a kind designs to crochet slip-knot loops row by row. Each bag takes at least a day of careful concentration and creativity to create; Larger bags can take up to 3 days to finish.
I’m so grateful for all of the ongoing love I’ve received these past few days. You golden souls might not realize but your kind words and thoughts are fueling this fire, my vision. Many of you are asking how you can buy a bag and all I can say is please be patient since we are starting the shipping process TODAY bringing these lovelies from the mountains to Ecuador to my home in the US. Stay tuned, friends! ✿

and above all these things, [have] love, which is a bond of the perfection,
Colossians 3:14 YLT
Love is above all, it bonds us together perfectly!
Before this, the writer of Colossians wrote about mercy, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering, and forgiveness (see v. 12 & 13). As good as these things are (and I'm not saying you shouldn't have them), God declares that love is "above all these things". Love is the most important thing.
And love comes not out of our own self- effort or from our obedience, but it comes because God first loved us (see 1Jn. 4:19)! When we focus on, and remind ourselves about God's love for us, we will supernaturally start to love as well. Be rooted and grounded in love (see Eph. 3:17), for live will bind us all together in perfect harmony! Amen!
TL;DR - God loved us first that we might love as well, for love is above all and bonds us together perfectly. .
Good night, and always remember: Jesus loves you!

“And now she is planted in the wilderness, in a dry and thirsty ground.”
Ever feel like you are in a barren land... witnessing is hard, you think no one will hear or want to listen to the good news you have for them in Jesus? I want to encourage you... sometimes God will plant you in a place where only HE can work.. and a flower that blooms in the desert stands out more than those among the hundreds of others! .
Pray for an opportunity, for a soul to witness to and watch how even in that barren land you can reach a person that needs the Lord 🌱
