Writer's Notebook

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.

Today brings an opportunity to share another poem from the “Monday Memories” series.  Today’s poem was previously published in March, 2019, and it is one of my early Christian-themed poems.  It was written on a day when I was experiencing my own struggles (see the note at the end of the poem).  My wish is that you will feel the strength of our awesome God in “Monday Memories:  God’s Mighty Fortress.”

In addition to my writing, view another journal entry posted on January 27 in 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 encouraged to read a quote updated on January 27 from American author Catherine Marshall.  Her words remind us that God stands ready to open a door of hope in our lives.

Many of you enjoy photography (either your own or someone else’s).  Central Ohio is blessed with various recreational opportunities from Hoover Reservoir.  Check out the new photograph added on January 22 in the Photo Gallery.
