National Police week!

I wonder who will take my place someday. I wonder who will put on his armor and pick up his shield and sword and follow my path. My path is hard and lonely. It is filled with danger and unspeakable things. My path leads to satisfaction and self-worth if you are strong enough to follow it. It does not lead to fame or fortune so if that is what you seek, take another path.   You cannot be a selfish person if you want to walk upon my path for if you are it will devour you and leave you broken. My path requires that you put all others before yourself. My path may require you to give your life to walk upon it. Are you willing?   You must be strong to walk upon my path. It has many obstacles for you. You must be able to conquer your fear for if you don’t my path will terrify you. You must have faith to tread upon my path, for if you have no faith you will not make it to the end. My path is surrounded by darkness and in that darkness is evil. Evil that you must face without hesitation, for hesitation leads to death. Evil that strives to lead you astray. Evil that will take your life and your soul. Are you ready to walk upon my path?   My path will change you and all that you were before you started your journey on it. It will make you cold and hard on the outside. It will scar you on the inside also. It does not forgive or forget any mistake you make. My path will hold you to a higher standard than those who don’t walk upon it. You will be happy one minute and terrified the next on my path. My path is full of surprises, some good, and some bad. If you chose to walk upon my path, your friends will abandon you. Your family will not understand why you chose to walk upon it.   You will be ridiculed and scorned and at the same time people will beg for your help. My path will fill you with pride and it will give you a bond to all who walk it with you or have ever walked upon it. I wonder, I wonder who will take my place. My path is getting harder and more dangerous each day. I fear for those who will make the choice to follow me. I pray that they will be strong enough.   My time upon this path will end soon, I can see the end of my path but I know that my ending is another ones beginning and I pray for them. I try and teach them what I know. I pass along the little tricks I have learned and I hope they pay attention for this path has no mercy for those of us who walk upon her. She is littered with the broken shields of my brothers and sisters. She holds their bodies in her cold grasp.   If you wish to walk upon my path, I wish you well, I pray for you and know that you will never walk her alone. The spirit of those who have gone before you will always be watching over you.

Shower at work

Sunday School surprise shower!!

He is doing his job...

He’s a man. Just like you. He breathes in and out, sleeps, eats, laughs and He comes home to his wife and children each day. They want to keep it that way. Point a gun at him and you take away a husband, father, son, brother, man.

When he pulls you over, HE’S DOING HIS JOB.

When he writes you a ticket, HE’S DOING HIS JOB.

When he pulls you out of a burning car on the side of the road where no one else can hear your cries, HE’S DOING HIS JOB.

When he risks his life to keep you safe, HE’S DOING HIS JOB.

When his wife lets him walk out the door every day, leaving his family to protect yours, HE’S DOING HIS JOB.

When he works overnight so you can sleep in safety, HE’S DOING HIS JOB.

When he crouches behind cars with an assault rifle looking for a madman, HE’S DOING HIS JOB.

When he pulls over your son for driving drunk, HE’S DOING HIS JOB (& keeping other people alive).

When he arrests you for drug use, HE’S DOING HIS JOB.

When he’s hunting you because you broke the law, HE’S DOING HIS JOB.


Thank a police officer for DOING HIS JOB today, because he might die for you tomorrow…

Gatlinburg weekend!

Here are a few pictures from Tennessee. It was such a fun week!

It's a GIRL!!

We went to Gatlinburg with both of our families for the Bristol race. So we found out on Monday and had to keep it a secret until Thursday night! It was fun being the only ones who knew what the baby was! We couldn't believe that we were really having a girl.  We were both prepared to hear the words boy! When she told us we just looked at the screen in disbelief. The tech was like...So yall are very quiet. I finally said...Are you sure? So she checked 3 more times!  We are so exicted to say we are having a girl!!!
