"Peace has to be created in order to be maintained"... this is a very easy statement to type but believe me when I tell you it's hard to practice! When I first started SIMPLY PERFECT PEACE EVENTS, the prayer was to allow the same peace that resides within me -be passed on to others. I stood on the streets of Tamarack and wondered, how Lord can that be done? I wasn't always at "peace"; life happens and sometimes it's just not there.
The first step, and probably the easiest, to acquiring this "peace" was to surround myself with like minded people. I have a wonderful family and friends of faith that can't be matched. However, In the process of surrounding myself I also had to let some people go. When you do a lot of networking, often times you meet people that make frequent withdrawals and few deposits. This began to interrupt my peace and cause me to be angry ..... so bye bye to those people, I wish you well and consider the withdrawals paying it forward :)
The second step, and what I consider the most beneficial, was "studying to be quiet". Not only was this the most beneficial, it was the most difficult!!! Four years ago I said to myself.. "self, shut your mouth!" From home, to work, to all social settings.. Sharon had to sit down and shut up!!! How in the world can the PEACE of GOD abide when you're always flappin (yes flappin) your gums? Throughout this process, my fear of speaking openly was conquered and I was able to share with other women of faith the importance of building up and not tearing down (Proverbs 14:1). From this three journals and two t-shirt were birthed and I'm grateful, thankful and honored that God would use ME to help others.
