Congrats Bro...

A Fireman's Prayer
When I am called to duty, God,
Whenever flames may rage;
Give me strength to save a life,
Whatever be its age.
Help me embrace a little child
Before it is too late
Or save an older person
From the horror of that fate.
Enable me to be alert
And hear the weakest shout,
And quickly and efficiently
To put the fire out.
I want to fill my calling
And to give the best in me
To guard my every neighbor
And protect his property.
And if according to Your will,
I have to lose my life,
Please bless with Your protecting hand,
My children and my wife.

Congrats to Johnny Boy for passing academy. How awesome is that?!?! Here are some photo's from a super proud sis. And yeah, I photoshopped out the department written on the rig. If you know Johnny, you know where he works. If you don't know him... well, you don't need to know that info.

I applaud all firefighters (your brother included). They are to be commended for their bravery and courage in times of danger. Thank you Bekah for proudly spreading the word about your brother.

Way to go Johnny!

Way to take my idea Beck's! I would have forgotten to photoshop out the dept. name though so it's probably better that way:) John would have had a lot of night stockers!

Happy Birthday boys!!!! It seems like only I miss those times!

Congratulations to both of my boys for being the best fire fighters around.

Love, mom
