A Fallen Servant

A week ago, on Tuesday, my city woke up to hear about the tragic murder of Police Constable Eric Czapnik, while on duty at 4:30 a.m. He was 51 years old and leaves behind a wife and four children. He only became a police officer two years ago. That alone impresses me - someone who goes after their true calling even at an age most people would consider it "too late"! Please say a prayer for Constable Eric's family, including his police family, as the funeral takes place tomorrow afternoon.
"...Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil.....and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever." Ps. 23

I hold a special place in my heart for police officers as I truly wanted to be one when I was a teenager and early twenties but then a career as a paramedic caught my attention.
