What a wonderful message in each verse. I enjoyed reading your poem today especially the verses oh, there are pockets of peace, here and
there, would to God it were everywhere. I wish peace was everywhere
and that all men could get along. Let's just contine to pray for
peace, love and harmony then perhaps someday this all will come to past.

It is strange, when they go to war, that both sides have God on their side.
Just Thinking (Poetry) - 8/12/2013 12:20:25 PM
Very impressive thinking, Thurman. This would be a better world if more thought as you do. And so well said!

Regardless whether there is a diviner of our fate for not, good things eventually come to good men who wait.
The Pearl (Poetry) - 7/9/2013 4:36:16 AM
Blessings my friend. Loved this one.

THURMAN...YOU HAVE OUTDONE YOURSELF! I WILL DEFINITELY KEEP THIS WONDERFUL WORK! I LOVE ALL ASPECTS OF THIS SHARING; THE LAYOUT, THE PHRASES, THE FLOW, THE RHYTHM, THE RHYME AND THE THEME. ITS CORRELATES WITH THE WORK OF GOD SO WELL...THE WHEAT AND THE TARES. YES! UNTIL 'HE' SEPARATES US...WE LIVE AND GROW IN THIS WORLD...TOGETHER! THANKS FOR SHARING.

We cannot wait for some God to intervene. We must begin understanding one another and accept our differences and strengths. Like Rodney King said, “Why can't we all just get along.”
The Way Get's Clearer (Poetry) - 6/9/2013 7:30:36 AM
You are sending a very clear message that we need to leave all the clutter behind and focus what is really important for our legacy. Wise advice.
The Way Get's Clearer (Poetry) - 6/9/2013 4:18:13 AM
words so true to each seeing their place

A FINE WORK...ONE THAT EVERY PERSON ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH CAN RELATE TO BECAUSE WE 'ALL'...HAVE INSTANCES IN OUR LIVES THAT WE WISH WE COULD FIX...IF...WE COULD. THIS IS A KEEPER, THURMAN AND THANKS SO MUCH FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...

If I Could (Poetry) - 12/15/2011 4:29:11 PM
oh, you expressed my own thoughts so well, Thurman! Remorse and regret plague me as well..it is a part of aging...realizations - come late - kick in a conscience that haunts us..my wise nephew told me, "Youth is for making mistakes'...that must be it.
Americans will tell you not to beat yourself up and to move on...I can not understand that..it's an attitude thing.
Bless you and Merry Christmas!
The Quill (Poetry) - 12/15/2011 4:52:50 AM
It's a God-given gift, Thurman. Use it wisely, directed by Him, and there will be someone, somewhere, who needed it.
If I Could (Poetry) - 12/15/2011 4:49:08 AM
You have opened a Pandora's box here, Thurman, as memories rush in. Some things, we can try to make amends for; others, we have to take to the cross and leave them there with Jesus. He alone can give us the peace we need--peace with God and peace with our memories.
If I Could (Poetry) - 11/11/2011 6:11:07 AM
"If I could" I would! Surely, it's difficult to undo what has already been done, but to trust in God for forgiveness that's quite possible.
Too Much Doctrine! (Poetry) - 9/9/2011 5:57:17 AM
"Too Much Doctrine!" I'm in agreement with you, Thurman! Whereupon, I'm of the opinion: what is causing the confusion with many people; putting them off God is due to too much fazed watereddown doctrine, which is going about today. A nice poem!
The Journey (Poetry) - 4/14/2011 2:58:25 AM
Continue onward Christian Soldier. God Bless
The Quill (Poetry) - 1/1/2011 8:41:10 AM
Thurman, God uses you to write. It's my only explanation. Some can draw some can paint...I can't but we all have a gift. As an author I am amazed how well my books sell and so each night I thank the Lord. I did not start off being a writer but all the time I knew it was my way of pleasing others.
May it be the happies and healthiest of years.
If I Could (Poetry) - 11/22/2010 7:10:10 AM

Love this. Watched your granddaughter's video. She's got it. Best of all she got you and her parents to encourage her efforts. Merry Xmas & happy holidays. Joyce

Oh, Thurman. You have spelled out so beautifully how I am feeling
right now. Not that it's a new experience, but when life is throwing
lemons at you, you tend to recall the lemons you threw, right? Not the only time mistakes flash back, just that they fly in in bunches.
Be easy on yourself, my friend. You are obviously a very fine person.
Think it's called being human.
Always, and Then,

Truly heartfelt and honest; I cannot understand how anyone could not relate to what you have expressed via your verses here, Thurman. Thank you. Love, peace, and blessings to you,
If I Could (Poetry) - 10/27/2010 6:50:27 PM
Inspirational, prayer-like piece that strikes at the heart and soul, though going back can never be...
Be always safe,
Too Much Doctrine! (Poetry) - 10/27/2010 4:01:24 PM
Excellent writing, this contains great wisdom. It's a good reminder that we need to reach out to a hurting world with love and compassion, not to deny the evil of sin but to touch the lives around us with Jesus' love for them. Only then do they begin to see Him in us and desire to know Him.
The Potter And The Clay (Poetry) - 10/27/2010 3:38:34 PM
"How crumpled and twisted and all out of shape
Our lives can become through many a mistake"
Your poems shine with the light of faith; it's obvious you know the Potter and have lived in His light.
The Presence And The Promise (Poetry) - 10/27/2010 3:32:53 PM
Oh, what blessed words to soothe the soul in the chaos!
Peace Be Still (Poetry) - 10/27/2010 3:31:00 PM
This peace that comes from our relationship with the Lord is a puzzle to others. I like this poem of peace achieved through faith.
If I Could (Poetry) - 10/27/2010 11:57:59 AM
Thoughts come and go. But its nice to record the thought of a moment. But there will be more...
Patience (Poetry) - 10/23/2010 4:02:06 AM
Napoleon Hill said "What the human mind can believe the human mind can achieve" If a humble man can be so capable.Imagine what that same man can accomplish if that belief included faith in God. Nelson Mandella comes to mind as I write this. Good write Thurman. God Bless
Too Much Doctrine! (Poetry) - 10/23/2010 3:55:15 AM
Again so true. Jesus said "He who is without sin cast the first stone" Our churches are struggling here in Canada mainly because of this very mistake. "Judge not lest you be judged" seems to have been forgotten.

So true . One day at a time. God Bless
Too Much Doctrine! (Poetry) - 10/21/2010 9:45:36 AM

Yes, wonderful poem and message about eternal peace and love!
A Quiet State Of Mind (Poetry) - 10/17/2010 8:45:35 PM
Not much one can do about the state of the world other than resist adding to the chaos. But paths to inner peace are many and even amid the rumblings of disorder and disaster can lead indeed to the desired quiet state of mind. Much gratitude for the sharing,
The Quill (Poetry) - 10/17/2010 8:41:44 PM
Considering your background as shared on your profile page Thurman, I would be very surprised if your did not feel the urge to write quite frequently. Individuals who cultivate spiritual inspiration within their own lives and fans its flames in that of others are often filled with revelatory impulses and imagery that demand expression. Thank you for sharing yours,
Sun, Moon, And Stars (Poetry) - 10/17/2010 8:05:50 PM
A lovely reminder to treasure our ageless companions and their eternal beauty, as well as their powers.
Tonight the moon here is especially clearly visible, but the title of your poem would have attracted me at any time. Thanks for posting, Thurman!

The Quill (Poetry) - 10/1/2010 6:52:19 PM
Pretty much sums up how it works for me. The puzzle is why sometimes the words just seem to flow while other times are barren with no words you know. Enjoyed it. God Bless Luke
I Can Wait (Poetry) - 10/1/2010 7:03:30 AM
