Where do you go when life as you know it is turned completely upside down? It happened to me. The life I knew and loved vanished on August 7, 2013 when my college sweetheart and husband of 33 years chose to end his life. There are not words to describe my shock and devastation. Though I was surrounded with wonderful, loving people, none of them could restore the half of me that died that day. This was a God-sized task! This is my journey through shock, grief, mourning and healing. It is the very personal and profound journey I took to ultimately discover that no matter how deep your pain…God is always there and He is enough. If you are grieving, God Is Enough will give you hope. I understand what you are going through, and I am here to share my message of hope, healing and faith.

"Loneliness is a product of loss. Doug Manning described it in this way: 'The awful loneliness seems to be there every moment of every day. The finality of death leaves a hollow feeling all over your body. Loneliness comes in only one size - extra large.'" Loneliness also brings feelings of not belonging. Often depression displays itself as well. The best strategy is to let God take control. He knows all about you and loves you immensely.
It is amazing to me that the God of the universe is so interested in my life! May I never get over the amazing love or take it for granted. God wants to use me to accomplish His purposes. He desires a relationship with His creation. That concept just blows my mind!
God is Enough
Many nights when I am afraid, stressed, overwhelmed, lonely or sad, I pray to Him. In the dead stillness of the night I know He’s awake because He never sleeps, so I talk to Him about my concerns. Then I close my eyes and sleep because I have given everything over to Him “to handle”. The next day I look for His activity and I see it! I cannot imagine walking this most difficult journey without My Heavenly Father holding me.
