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.
As Christians, believers should feel cherished by a Father, who loves them unconditionally.
Do you write a daily journal? This inspiring thought comes from my journal, and much of what is written in my journal comes from reading and commenting on other bloggers’ posts. Thanks to many of you for adding so much to my journal.
When God wants to do an impossible task, He takes an impossible man, and He crushes him.
From Acts 9:1-5: “Meanwhile Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues at Damascus, so that if he found any who belonged to the Way, men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. Now as he was going along and approaching Damascus, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. He fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, ‘Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?’ He asked, ‘Who are you, Lord?’ The reply came, ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.'”
Do you enjoy writing or reading poetry? Most of the posts on Big Sky Buckeye are poetry, but I also share short stories, photography, and a few surprises along the way. You are invited to sit a spell and find something you like. I enjoy sharing my curiosity through my writing. You are welcome to like, comment, follow, share, or reblog a post.
Welcome to Big Sky Buckeye, who is witnessing a rain-soaking day in central Ohio. But the rain hasn’t dampened any enthusiasm for writing and sharing my writing journey. Using themes of temptation, darkness, and light, a series of short poems, which are written in the German-inspired style of elevenie, are on tap. You you invited to read and experience “Grace-Filled Light.”
In addition to my writing, view another journal entry posted on October 29in From My Journal. While Big Sky Buckeye enjoys writing poetry and short stories, much of his journal writing is inspired from reading and commenting on other blogger’s posts.
You are invited to read a quote updated on October 29 from thoughts shared from British pastor and Christian author Alan Redpath. His words explain how God uses each of us to accomplish impossible tasks.
Many of you enjoy photography (either your own or someone else’s). Montana Hall on the campus of Montana State University welcomes me back each time I visit (graduating way back in 1978). Check out the new photograph added on October 14 in the Photo Gallery.
Here’s my Baker’s Dozen, featuring 13 of my recent writings from the past couple of weeks. Each post is linked to take you right to its location. Other poems and writings can be found in the archives. Enjoy!
Faith is not a feeling; it is action. It is a willed choice.
From Hebrews 11:1-3: “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Indeed, by faith our ancestors received approval. By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was made from things that are not visible.”
