He suddenly dropped dead of a heart attack…I was alone.
A few years ago, my husband and I were on an 8 mile hike in the wilderness in Yellowstone Park, Wyoming when he suddenly dropped dead of a heart attack. I was alone and lost literally and spiritually. I remember making it back home to Florida and talking to God one night...saying Lord I don't know why this happened, but I want to thank you for giving me this wonderful man in my life for 26 yrs of marriage.
After that prayer, many wonderful things happened in my life. I met some wonderful people while walking my dog. They invited me to Four Corners Baptist Church. I knew immediately this is where I was meant to be. I accepted Jesus as my personal Savior and became involved in the food pantry ministry I am now also helping at Loughman Oaks Elementary School.
I have a new sense of peace and meaning in my life. Jesus took my tragedy and the Holy Spirit guides my heart to live outside myself for His glory to minister to others. I am forever grateful for His grace and mercy and for giving me a new purpose in my life.
