I wear a simple thin band ring that has the word PEACE on the band. I began wearing it several years ago. I don't exactly remember details about the day that I purchased it or why or what made me feel the need to purchase or wear it. I am a 54 year old working woman, mother of two adult children and grandmother to 5 grandchildren. I'm sure my life is very similar to others my age, as in when we reach 50 years of living our experiences are many and can span a very broad array of interests, memories and knowledge.
I have always enjoyed being independent, however being independent doesn't always mean we feel confident and sure of the choices we make and the situations we find ourselves in. My relationship with God has always been a very simple and trusting one. If I am feeling unsure I close my eyes and pray a very simplistic silent prayer "Dear Lord, Please tell me what to do, or Tell me what to say."
There have been many times in my life that I am sure it has been God that has introduced me to people who have helped me to better understand myself and God's plan for my life. It may sometimes be a very short encounter with a stranger or sometimes, an encounter that has led to very long and close friendships. Either way the words, feelings or glances exchanged leave a memorable, positive, loving and peaceful memory. It also leaves me knowing that when God is in control he will lead our hearts and minds to peace.
