Kay Arthur - Her husband committed suicide

Kay Arthur, a well known author and speaker, tells how she and her husband were constantly having problems, so finally, she left him. Time after time he called and pleaded with her to come back, but she refused. Finally, he threatened suicide, & she told him, “Go ahead, I need the money.” And he did. In her remorse she can remember driving from the funeral, shaking her fist in anger at God and saying, “Go to hell, God.” Then she writes, “It was like someone flipped a switch. I suddenly realized that was exactly what God did. He went to hell for me, that I might go to heaven with Him.” (Lou Nicholes,  Missionary/Author).
