Charlie Williams (pictured below), is a wonderfully talented man, wrote and shared this poem with me this morning. I’m happy to call this man my friend! I hope it moves you as much as it moved me! Happy 4th!

The Man

charlie williamsI watched a tall willowy man, with a shock of radiant white hair
He was knelt in peaceful silence, deep within his prayer
His prayer was spoke for unity, in this embattled world
For all the goodness that’s within us all, to be universally unfurled
More patience and understanding, more kindness was his hope
More helping hands to those in need, a loving embrace to help them cope
A prayer for no more bloodshed, to be spilt by hatred deeds
A prayer to calm those with anger, which grows deep within their seeds
The cry for help to be answered, from the child that has no food
For we, are all responsible, no one, should we preclude
Let all the disenchanted know, that deliverance is very near
There’s no need to live in terror, and no need to dwell in fear
For we all can live together, let good hearts show us the way
Changing a life, one at a time, each and every single day
Blessed peace and harmony, should be the objective of us all
Eradication of discrimination, build a bridge, knock down a wall
Let the weary know relief, may all the abused slaves be set free
May happiness and joy be the glorious light, the blind can clearly see
Then a glow of light surrounded him, he was cocooned in the purity of love
The brightest, whitest light emanated from him, and lit up the skies above
He stood and turned and looked at me, the beauty of his eyes calmed me to my core
My heart swelled with exultation, Exquisite love raised me off the floor
For serenity, compassion and gentleness was mine
For now I was bestowed the secret, and its everlasting Love, divine
His prayers were now within me, and I will live them out each day
I will spread the word of Love and kindness, to all I meet along my way
A smile of love will be my weapon, for it is far greater than any sword
For I have gazed into the eyes, the loving eyes of My Sweet Lord.

Welcome to Fresh Start 007!

Hello friends,

A few close and well respected friends have told me repeatedly that I have a gift for writing . . . so here goes.

Many of you know I walked through several difficult years dealing with life’s struggles.  Although, at times, I felt “all alone”, I always knew that I had God to hold on to!

A couple of years ago I had to start rebuilding my life after a 20-year marriage ended.  I started over with NOTHING!  For over 25 years I had been involved in real estate development and had a hand in helping to build industrial buildings, shopping centers, office buildings and apartment complexes.  I can tell you . . . it’s much easier to build from scratch.  But as I came to find out first hand, rebuilding my life was HARD WORK!  Instead of building from scratch, I had to first deal with the damage of the past.  After I faced the fact that there was, indeed, damage, I had the task of cleaning out the anger, bitterness, fear, worry and anxiety from my heart and soul.

With that in mind, I’ll be sharing about my life experiences together with random thoughts about where I am today to help remind me of how far I’ve come in my own journey and also to give you hope for your very own FRESH START!

Since this is my first post, I want to share my heart with this scripture:

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.  2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NIV

Also, before you go, let me share this.  My parents have long since passed away (Mom in 1990 and Dad in 1999), but while my Dad was still alive he blessed me with this verse every time I left his home after a visit and I was always comforted on my drive home.  I pray this blesses and comforts you as it did me:

“‘“The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.”’  Numbers 6:24-26 NIV

I hope you follow me!
