"You broke my heart with this one."

~ Unrelated Patient and Real Estate Agent

" “God had you” period - He not only had you for that exact time (for anything good must be done at the right time) but He had/has you in the sense [that] you belong to Him, so your present(ness) even in a wave could give this family home. Words or in this case ([an] action-wave) fitly spoken are like apples in settings of silver. This and many other reasons [are why] the ability to follow [or] hear the promptings of God is the sweetest consolation of the Christian. This ability to hear and follow is what Peter calls virtue and James more plainly with slight rhetorical flourishes enumerated in James 1:22....well let me [read the next] one and see what my response will be."

~ Physician Training In Neurology


~ Physician in Cardiology

“This is great!”

~ Physician in Child Psychiatry

"Wow, very impressive! Capturing what we normally go through very succinctly and beautifully in your poem."

~ Physician in Pulmonology & Critical Care Medicine

"Oh my word!! You are brilliant at this! Who writes like this? I was thinking as I read this poem, surely this will be a “ok” in comparison to said masterpiece but I knew this was going to surpass the earlier poem when you write, “not defeat but deflate”. It wasn’t that line but it was the contrast and the explanation of said line that made me think you are truly gifted at this stuff and then you completely “killed” it at the end with “strong” and “on”. 
Now I see why the Bible is so “inspiring”! “Holy men and modern day women wrote as the Holy Spirit came upon them”."

~ Hospital Chaplain
