Many of you have been following the stories on Papa Smurf now better known as Richard Cole.
Steve with Open Table David with Veritas Schools and I spent time with Richard yesterday. HE LOOKED GREAT!
You can already see in these pictures before he went into Rehab that the transformation has already started.
Yesterday we met a sober Richard who was calm and resolved in his recovery - willing to continue in a 30 day program starting this week,
I was amazed at the new Richard and his sobriety.
He has a long way to go but with prayer and sticking to it he has a great chance to continue on his recovery.
Please keep him if you prayers.
When we get his address we will send it out to give you a chance to write and encourage him.
We are always looking for the future and what we will do when this and that takes place in our life.
Richard is in his future -
as he planned to do this for himself -
for his mother and for his children months ago.
We too are in our future…
Last year we all looked to the future -
So, last years vision of the future is now.
We are all in our future…Now is the time to act… Now is the time to move… Now is that time to DO…
Don't let your future pass you by.
Today is the day you need to have the resolve to make a change in your world - in your life…
Today we need more people like Steve - Ingrid - Lindsay - and Jeannie…
The people of Open Table Nashville.
Because today they are making a difference in the lives of the homeless in our city and in the lives of people like Richard Cole.
Whose life will you have a positive impact upon today?
