Make me a man
Of fervent prayer
God’s Holy Word
Commands me to pray
To bring everything
To you my Lord
Let me pray
You are my refuge
Let me offer
Prayers of thanksgiving
In all things
Great and small
At all times
Whether happy or sad
Let me seek
Your wisdom and grace
Today, may God bring you the courage to ask him for guidance. Ask Him to lead you to a “right” place.

Life and family will take us through highs and lows, but God’s Word will always be there to bring us comfort, support, and opportunities for prayer.
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.

Do you enjoy writing or reading poetry? Most of the posts on Big Sky Buckeye are poetry. You are welcome to sit a spell and find something that you like. I enjoy sharing my curiosity through my writing. You are welcome to like, comment, follow, share, or reblog a post.
Hello readers. I have returned from my nearly three-week hiatus as my travels took me to Colorado for a wedding and to my native state of Montana to spend time with family. I am eager to resume my normal publishing schedule, and I look forward to reading and commenting on other bloggers’ posts.
Many readers on WordPress search for Christian-based poetry. Big Sky Buckeye welcomes you to read a poem that is structured as a prayer, which is entitled “Morning Prayer.”
In addition to the poetry, view another journal entry posted on July 22 in From My Journal. While Big Sky Buckeye enjoys writing poetry, much of his journal writing is inspired from reading and commenting on other blogger’s posts.
You are encouraged to read a quote updated on July 22 from American evangelist and Biblical scholar Vance Havner. He presents insightful views into the Christian way of life.
Many of you enjoy photography (either your own or someone else’s). Southwestern Montana is filled with rich history from the early gold strikes that brought thousands of fortune seekers in the 1860s and 1870s. Check out the new photograph added on June 28 in the Photo Gallery.
You will find a variety of poems from the past few weeks. Each post is linked to take you right to its location. Other poems and writings can be found in the archives. Enjoy!
Failure will arrive
From the ashes of despair—
Comes greatest success

Life’s sticky messes
How do we clean it all up?
Seek God’s helping hand
Focus on God’s Word
Walking on a truer path—
He will see us through
We think too much and feel too little.
A trio of boys is always up to mischief at school.
Mrs. Hall is the very strict, no nonsense, typing teacher up on the second floor. She runs her classroom like a well-run military operation. She adores reading about General George S. Patton.
The typing classroom consists of the latest manual typewriter models. (Sorry lad, no electric ones yet.)
The delinquent boys intend to surprise and shock Mrs. Hall this morning. After all, there is nothing wrong with conducting a small science experiment from her classroom.
Have you ever seen a typewriter fly?
The boys sneak an old typewriter into Mrs. Hall’s classroom before the school day begins.
With a lookout posted near the classroom door, the other two boys open a window and place the typewriter on the ledge.
Just as Mrs. Hall walks into the room, her ever-alert eyes see the boys at the open window with the typewriter.
“Hey Mrs. Hall! Have you ever seen a typewriter fly?”
The typewriter is launched from the window ledge, precisely on schedule.
Thinking the boys are dropping one of her prized Olivetti typewriters from the window, brings a shocking look of surprise to Mrs. Hall’s face . . . Priceless!
