Little Sheriff’s Deputy

Hey Friends, happy Saturday. This is Odie reporting in from California. We are having a fantastic time this week in Fresno with Pastor Anthony Munoz and our friends at Souls Harbor. We are looking forward to three more great services this weekend. Revival is going great and you are invited to join us.

I have a wonderful time everytime we are with the Munoz clan. They have been our friends since I was 7 years old. Most of the Munoz kids that I grew up with are married and now have children of their own. The kids are all so precious and I love that they are my little buddys. 

My friends, their parents, have taught them to be my friends too. That is really cool, since I do not get to see them often. I enjoy getting to see my friends and love on their kids any chance I can. 

Last Saturday was Veteran’s Day and I wrote this post here saying thank you to our Veterans. Today I wanted to say thank you to our law enforcement.

I remember as a child being afraid when I saw a Policeman at a restaurant. My parents taught me not to be afraid of police officers but to be thankful for them. The police are there to protect us and keep things peaceful. 

Thank you for all you do to keep law and order in our country. Your job is definitely not easy or very safe. I am grateful that our nation’s police officers are willing to put their life on the line to ensure we are safe. I know your job is extremely scary to you and your families. 

There are lots of times that you do not receive the recognition and support you deserve. I just wanted to take a moment and say thank you! I appreciate your hard work!

This Fox News story a few weeks ago caused me to think about this topic. From the news stories I read, Cohen Chastain loves police officers and wanted to show his respect and admiration for his heroes. Here is a quote from Cohen’s Mother that I read. 

“Cohen has always looked up to police officers. He is so sweet and has always had the biggest heart,” said Cohen’s mother, Mandy Brooks Chastain. “He loves superheroes and thinks of police officers as real life superheroes.”

Cohen heard about a local detective in his area that lost her life in the line of duty. He wanted to do something to show is appreciations of his heroes, the police. Three year old Cohen Chastain wore his Policeman costume and stood for two hours saluting police officers at the detective’s funeral. 

Cohen’s local Sheriff’s Department took notice of this little guy. They made him a Floyd County Sheriff’s Deputy. He even got his own vehicle. He is one cool dude!

Deputy Chastain’s story inspired me to want to say thank you in my own way. I love keeping up with the news and  little nugget of good news like this makes me smile. 

I appreciate you stopping by to visit us today. The next time you have a chance to speak to a police officer, take a moment to thank them for their service to the community. Have a great weekend.
