My husband passed away after 61 years of marriage. I had paid all of the bills because he traveled a lot, but I knew I would be starting a new life quite different from the married life. I depended on God to give me the courage and peace to go on a new path. My family encouraged me and about a year later I moved from Wimberley to Nacogdoches and joined Fredonia Hill Baptist. My house was for sale about a year and a half. When it sold for a lot less than originally listed, it was all I needed and then some. God knew how much I needed and had it for me. He also taught me patience.
