Scripture: My God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. He is my refuge, my savior, the one who saves me from violence. 2 Samuel 22:3 (NLT)
Hidden Journaling: As a correctional family, we know the dangers associated with John’s job. But, sometimes, when you’ve been working with inmates as long as he has, a person can get forget. On September 24, 2007, those dangers became a reality in our small prison town. Susan Canfield, a correctional officer, who worked in the field force at the Wynne Unit, attempted to stop an inmate from escaping and was killed in the line of duty. All neighboring units responded… including John’s unit. When he called and said that he was armed and headed out on the search – I was sick to my stomach. Who would protect him? Immediately, I knew the answer. God would protect him. As He does everyday.
