Mom's with their babies tightly bound to their bodies welcome strangers who need some water, food, or just friendly advice about where to go. The babies learn the real meaning of trust; they simply 'rest' in the tight cloth against their mother's body. They don't struggle or strain to get out. They relax and enjoy the ride. Oh how I wish I could learn more of the same in relation to God. Just relying on Him and His will and ways- instead of always wanting to leap into my own plans and actions.
Accra has changed, as I commented in a previous post. With the changes, there are differences, but at the same time the spirit of the Ghanaian people has remained the same. A very resilient and eager to help type of attitude reigns. The congested city of Accra still retains feelings of good will and such hope for the future.
What is hospitality without good food? Ghana certainly has her array of delicious cuisine. It might be local fare or International delights. I did go to "The Heritage House"- they opened a branch near the house I was staying, so this made it easy. I enjoyed Indian cuisine while chatting with old friends. How much better can life get than that?
All in all, the trip went splendidly. It was a great time of being reunited with old friends and meeting new friends. I laughed, cried, sighed, and rejoiced with people who I love. This is what life is all about - the people. It is hard for me to go anywhere and just speak of the sights and sounds; I find myself always relating back to the people. The Ghanaian people are such a warm and welcoming people. They truly make Ghana what it is today- a wonderful place to visit!
