Reflections for Police Officer Julie A. Engelhardt

Julie and I were friends during high school years and later. She and her mother encouraged me to learn how to knit. I remember her search for the right career, and once she found it she never stopped talking about it: she loved helping people and she really enjoyed her work. She was a courageous woman, so full of life. I'll never forget her.

Two days after my 12th birthday, my Aunt was taken from me. I often think or her and wonder what my life would be like if I had her to talk to. I pass her picture in the hallway every day. I'd like to thank everyone who left a comment through the years. She's gone, but not forgotten.

For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. . . . (‭Romans‬ ‭13‬:‭4‬ NIV)

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. (‭John‬ ‭15‬:‭13‬ KJV)

Those who walk uprightly enter into peace; they find rest as they lie in death. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭57‬:‭2‬ NIV)

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 23rd anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never dimishes respect. I pray for solace for all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Rest In Peace

"The Badge"
He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.
He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.
Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.
He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.
His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.
He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.
And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.
But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.
Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.
Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.
So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.
In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.
Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

CROSSING OVER ..... A NEW BEGINNING


Like each tiny grain of sand,through an hourglass
flowing
Our lives shift gently, without any definite
peroid of time,
Some of us soar slowly, like birds flying upon
feathery wings
While others seem to pass quickly, like fresh
grapes on a vine.

It is hard to tell your loved one good bye, if
only for a while
Though you know your souls later, will be forever
inter-twined,
Missing their arms surrounding you, and their
face filling smile
Yet they're always there guiding you, if you're
open to their signs!

When you just can not picture, how life without
them could be
Tears filling your eyes, as a swelling stream
never ending,
If you just think about God's love, then you
suddenly will see
What one thinks of as death, is truly a life
peacefully beginning !!

So grieve as you must, but don't let it take away
your life
Given so preciously to us, from our Lord God up
above,
Whether a Sister, brother, son, daughter,.....
husband or wife
Everyone is blessed by our Savior, with beautiful
eternal life!
