Good morning, Family:
I’m sure by now that you have heard about the tragic death of Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven others. Yesterday, I was in the car waiting for my husband to come out of Home Depot. All of a sudden my cell phone started chiming and dinging. I looked down and read what was coming across my screen. What do you mean Kobe Bryant is dead???!!! I wanted so bad to run inside the store and find my husband to tell him. My husband had so much respect and love for Kobe Bryant.
After a few moments, each man that I saw coming out of Home Depot had the same look of shock on their face. It’s was a pain that no one was ready for, yesterday. The more information we learned, our hearts just broke. My husband and I cried.
We prayed for their family and the road they would be facing. Death is never easy, but when its sudden and unexpected it hurts even more. Please keep the Bryant family and Vanessa’s extended family in your prayers, as well as the other family that lost their lives.
I know there will be a lot of people that have questions, including me. A great deal of people will ask, “Why God?” I wish I knew why anyone had to die. I don’t know the answer. All I can do is pray for strength, peace, and understanding over time.
New King James Version (NKJV)
27 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
