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.
M.E. Louis is a native of North Carolina. She grew up in Chapel Hill where she attended the University of North Carolina and met the love of her life, Tate, who became a pastor. After 33 years of marriage, Tate took his life on August 7, 2013. God is Enough is her story of hope, healing and faith.
I grew up in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I attended Chapel Hill High School. There was a group named Inter-Varsity that came to the high school once a week. We sang songs and heard about who Jesus is. There was a more detailed group that read the Bible and learned about Jesus which met a different time of the week. I attended those classes and one day I accepted Jesus as my Savior. I prayed to ask Jesus to come into my life. And that is exactly what He did. I have never been the same. If you interested in learning about who Jesus is, turn to pages 75 - 77.
God is Enough
For the first time ever the Freedom Hot Air Balloon Fest was held in my hometown! It is usually held in a town about thirty minutes away, but this year it was moved. One of my close friends, TJ, was volunteering at the event and her job was to work with the balloon pilots. She became acquainted with one of them, and told me he was interested in taking me up, up and away! What an experience. The ride lasted an hour and it was the most serene trip just above the treetops. People ran out of their houses to wave at us. It was so calm and relaxing—everything I thought it would be and much more.
