Guest Poems from Recovering Alcoholic Charlie

Charlie shared these two poems in my DUI class today and gave me permission to post on this blog. 

Charlie about his Step 12 AA:

All my life from God I've run
And never have I good things done
When I was the worst that I could be
He blessed my life and protected me
Trading a good and righteous Son
For me a no-good-rotten one
The price for me that Jesus paid
For Him I would have never made
How is it LORD that I, not He,
Escaped that cross at calvary!

For all the men and women 
who dedicated their lives helping others in
a substance abuse programs from Charlie: 

I didn't know that you would come
But called on God--you came
And by His Spirit encouraged some
While from His Word hope gave.
Thank You LORD for faithful servants
Their gifts made room for Thee
Behind prison walls and jail house bars,
The soul you saved was me!

Thanks for your careful reflection here. Best to you as you continue to not drive impaired by alcohol or other drugs; also DO not text and eat while driving. Pull over to the side of the road if you need to do that.
