Quote of the Quarter
“What is this? Oh, the meth pipe in my pocket? I take that stuff for spiritual purposes – it enhances my spiritual experiences.” Arrested individual
The world is full of uncertainty. New variance to Covid, wars and rumors of wars, political unrest, changing economy, tornadoes, and constant talk of global warming.
In the midst of all of the change and looming unknown, there is one constant, unchanging, unwavering surety. The guaranteed love of God toward you and me. In the midst of all of our dysfunction, hurt, hangups, disappointments, fears, and sickness, God sent Jesus, born fully man and fully God. He came to us with a purpose. He is our rescuer, our saviour. We need a remedy for our blunders, mistakes, our intentional misbehaving, yes – our sin. He came to save us from ourselves and the disaster we earned from our actions and attitudes.
He showed us the way and led us in the truth, because He is the Truth. He heals the sick, brings forgiveness, restores that which was lost, heals the brokenhearted, binds up the wounds of the broken, and reveals the forecast of a very hopeful future. Jesus! Let’s remember Jesus is the birthday we are celebrating at Christmas.
He’s a one size fits all – truly the best gift available. I hope you say yes and receive His gift of forgiveness, His love, and His Holy Spirit bringing your soul to life. I guarantee you will never regret it!
Some of the coolest people!
As I reflect on the close of another year, I pause for a moment and list out some of the people I am thankful for. The list is only a sample and not all inclusive. It covers categories more than individuals.
Family, friends, all cops – no matter the size, number of legs or agency. Cops that go the extra mile, Buddy the Elf and cops. Friends whose kids grow up and support others. Valued sponsors that help make this all happen. I am blessed to have so many cool people in my life!
Thank you for your interest and support in Code 7 for another year! Your prayer and financial support have made it possible to continue providing water for two agencies, opportunities to ride along weekly and buy dinner for the officers and their beat partners each time I’m out. Through these gestures of kindness and support, together we have earned the privilege of helping me become a trusted individual and valued asset to our police. They continue to come to me for encouragement and care when they need it most.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your believing in me and the mission of Code 7. As we support our law enforcement from the beginning to the end of their careers, through the ups and downs, your contributions have made a world of difference.
