Born in the Big Sky Country of Montana and now living in the Buckeye State of Ohio, Richard is the creative mind behind Big Sky Buckeye. Retired after 40 years of teaching, I enjoy writing, photography, traveling, and following a healthy lifestyle.
From Psalm 119:25: “My soul clings to the dust;revive me according to your word.”
Seeking to find
His open door
Lost in darkness
Hungry, in fear
Rest now with Him
Seeking His will
From Heaven’s spring
No more hiding
Come into light
Sit at His feet
Hearing Love’s voice
Filling us up
His Bread of Life
Chains ripped away
Boldly go forth
From Matthew 7:7-8: “Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you. For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.”
Rejoicing with everlasting joy, our Father’s goodness tastes like the sweetest jam.

Welcome to another Sunday, the Lord’s blessed day! When writing poetry, there are times when words just flow in the quietness of an early morning moment. After reading my morning devotionals, these collected thoughts were crafted into poetic prose in free verse. My wish for today is that others will find our Father’s “Open Door.”

From 1 Corinthians 13:12-13: “For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known. And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.”
Cherishing quiet love
Humble and enduring
Abiding sacred vows
Uniting and growing
Living as single one
True love overflowing
Sharing unbridled truth
Caring for love’s duet
Joy shines at each sunset
Hearing love’s small whispers
Blessing each day and night
Confessing true feelings
Boundless and holding tight
Listening to God’s love
Nurturing lifetime’s stage
Embracing each moment
Unhurried as we age

This is a new type of post, which will be posted on Saturday along with my usual writing. We can all appreciate some of the lesser known facts from around the world.

When Herman Melville’s classic, Moby Dick, was first published in America, it bombed, selling only 3,797 copies in its first thirty-six years in print.
These facts have been discovered in I NEVER KNEW THAT by David Hoffman (2009).
In the film, “The Natural,” starring Robert Redford, Roy Hobbs finally gets his big chance to step into the batter’s box. Here is the scene from the film. Indeed, life and baseball find ways to complement each other.
