Bloganuary 2022 – Thank You

I completed Bloganuary 2022, posting from my primary blog, POEMS FROM OOSTBURG, WISCONSIN. Thank you to The Team at for the excellent daily prompts in January 2022. Thank you to all who write and create art in many ways.

Bloganuary 2022

The daily prompts from The Team at are excellent. I am writing posts at POEMS FROM OOSTBURG, WISCONSIN.

Yesterday the question was What do you like most about your writing?

I wrote, My writing is from my heart.

Then I searched in my archives for my “heart poems” and created two more posts:

Heart Poems and Heart Poems – 2.

Some of my posts are longer. I also realized that times I have not been able to write – work, family, health – new stories were growing in my life. Gratitude and Hope.

Many Artists

These are a few of the many wonderful photos I posted here this year, from the free photo library.

Creative Notes

And the Word
was made flesh,
and dwelt among us . . .
full of grace
and truth.

From John 1:14 (KJV)

We included this Bible verse in Quiet Christmas Poetry. I have loved this verse for years. The Word.

New Year, New Success with Bloganuary is a recent post from News.

I look forward to this new challenge in January, and will begin with new posts from my site, POEMS FROM OOSTBURG, WISCONSIN. As I learn more, I will share here as well.

as the days
begin to shorten
my heart is drawn
to pray more
and contemplate
the Light of the World

And the light shineth in darkness . . .
