Sometimes I as I travel through life, I wonder if my activities and pursuits are meaningful. Often God confirms my activities by life circumstances.
I stopped at Home Depot to pick up copper wire to hang these beautiful handwoven African Market Baskets (Bath / Market Baskets) while I am at festivals and events. Bill, the older employee in the wire area, asked what I wanted with 10 lengths of 12 inch copper. When I explained their purpose and said maybe my little bit will help, he said he had worked for several NGOs and other companies installing wiring in rural areas in Africa. He looked me in the eye and said, “Anything you can do, is a big help to the women and their children.” He went on to tell me more about his career days and said, “Mostly I worked in Ghana.”
I am in the right place doing the right things for and with the right people.
