Heaven’s Doors

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How are you doing these days? Judy and I are doing fairly well.
The boys are as ornery as always LOL. We had a bad storm come
through Wednesday. I think 2 tornadoes set down about 20 miles
away from us or thereabouts. We were not in the path thank God.
We did though have a lot of rain and even some hail. There was
also a lot of high winds, but we didn’t blow away LOL. Judy and
I were outside taking pictures of the clouds and lightning hehehe.
I know, silly huh! Hey we both love to take pictures :). It got a
bit warm up here Friday, but only in the mid 80’s. It’s more like
it should be now LOL. Today’s high was around 67 F. Right now
it’s 61 F degrees at a little after 6 PM. Tuesday morning we have
a freeze watch. It’s supposed to get down to 30-32 F degrees, but
that’s all part of living up here LOL. I never accept the forecast
as written in stone, being hehehe they are guessing ya know LOL.
The definition of forecast is “Predict in advance” ya know hehehe.
So, what else is going on up this way? Hmm, I didn’t write any
poetry or haiku until after 1 PM today LOL. I did though get it
all written, but I had to pause for a brief to fix Judy and I some
food to eat :). I fixed her some waffles and sausage and made
myself some eggs, sausage and toast. We take turns cooking
and all just as my mom and dad used to do. The boys wanted
some of our food, but we pointed to the floor where they have
food to eat. They finally realized they weren’t gonna get any
of our food and ate their own like good boys. Yeppers, they
are spoiled, but we insist on them eating their food, not ours.
Ours isn’t good for them. Of course once in a blue moon we
will give them a piece of our sausage, but not enough for them
to become expectant of it LOL. So for those of you that are
playing Farm Town on Facebook, I guess you noticed that
there has been another farm added. Judy and I have already
bought it with our Farm Coins hehehe. Now we both have 20
farms :). Talk about a lot to keep us busy hehehehehehehe.
We have 20 farms on both of our profiles LOL! Ok, so for
those of you that could care less, onto another topic hehehe.
Tomorrows high is supposed to be 54 F degrees and it looks
like there is no rain in the forecast for this week. Judy and
I are planning on taking the boys in the next few days and
going on a picture taking drive. We might even see a few of
the early fall colors. Anyways, that’s our plans, but plans
can be changed if they have to. I’m hoping though that they
aren’t changed. This should be a perfect week for a drive.
In any sense, we will one day! So, what else is happening
around the Pearce’s Place? Actually it’s been fairly quiet
around here. We were getting worried about the boys due
to them not eating and all, but it just seems they were both
having a bad day and they are back to their old ornery selves
agin today. I sometimes wish that they could talk and tell me
what’s ailing them, but hehehe then they probably wouldn’t
shut up LOL. Oh well, they seem to be feeling better today.
God has blessed us with a home full of love. Yes, we have
our bad days, but that makes us appreciate the good times
even more so. Like good and evil. Without the evil in the
world, we would not have anything to compare with. There
has to be one with the other here on Earth so that we can
grow from the lessons. Thank God for the many lessons
we have learned. Of course many things are hard to face,
being they hurt and kill others, but with God, there is no
loss, but a gain. Heaven’s doors are opened awaiting for
those that have done what God wanted or He sees that
they belong. We are not the ones that determine whom
that will go to Heaven and whom that shall end in Hell.
God is the only one that decides that. For what you might
think you know about a person, might not be what’s truly
going on in their heart. We can only judge ones on what
they’ve done and where they will go here on Earth. Let
God do what He does best. Now I believe it’s time once
again for me to be taking my little journey back through
all that I’ve written here to see if I can find a good word
or phrase that might work for the title for today’s brand
new poem. So, it’s away I go to that little place of my
recollection that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. I think I might have found a good title, but
first I’ve gotta check to see if I have used yet. So OK,
it looks like I haven’t used it. Here goes. I hope it
comes out making sense LOL.

Heaven’s Doors

As many find their endings
here upon the Earth
Heaven’s door’s are waiting
new life giving birth.
As we’re born and gather
daily with our stride
we need always carry
Jesus deep inside.
Heaven’s doors are waiting
you and I each day
yet so many lose it
when they cease to pray.
Heaven’s doors are opened
awaiting you and I
when our Earthly bodies
shrivel up and die.
Now is not the ending
for our day and time,
for Heaven’s doors are waiting
meeting God sublime.
Let not death of loved ones
wear upon your soul,
for it is the purpose
needed to be whole.
Because one day in Heaven
you will surely see
all those gone before you
healthy as can be.

Ok, so there ya go. I hope that made a little bit of sense to ya.
I guess you could say I am always deep in thought and it does
get hard to rest LOL. No matter where I am, it seems that my
thoughts overwhelm me in poetic verse. hehehe. Yes, I said
ANYWHERE! I have always been that way. It’s God’s gift
to me that I try my best to share with others. Think about it 🙂
I wrote 10 poems and 22 haiku also today not to mention this
poem I just got finished writing LOL. I have no idea of how
that I am able to do that other than God has blessed me with
this gift. We all have gifts, some maybe not so pronounced,
but important none the less. We are all spokes to the wheel of
life. When we work together we make life roll a little more
smoothly. Some are caregivers and some are the ones that
are needed to help others grow. Like I said before, bad and
good, wrong and right are the benefactors to helping us to
become better. A man lifting weights without any weights
on the bar, would not get stronger. It’s with the added bits
of weights/struggles that we grow. My moms sister Aunt
Jody died a few days ago. Her brain started hemorrhaging
and it wasn’t long. Please keep my mom in your prayers.
Also my moms mom (my grandmother) will be 106 this
coming Friday the 20th 🙂 Grandmother, I love you and
wish I could come and wish you happy birthday, but I’m
pretty sure you know I love you. Mom, I love you too.
I hope to see you again one day. Maybe God willing we
can either make it to Texas sometime or you can make
it up here. None the less, I love ya bunches. Thanks
for being the best :). Now , before I find something else
to write about hehehe, I need to be telling ya what I tell
ya every week and that us, I wrote some more poems
and haiku. Yea, I know, I already told ya hehehehehe.
But none the less, I wrote 10 more poems with 3 of em
being sort of Christmassy. Also, I wrote 22 more haiku
for all of my haiku lovers out there. I hope you find a
few that you like of either or both :). Now, to find that
confounded off switch, but not before I wish you a most
wonderful God filled week. Remember, Jesus loves
you and we do too. OK, where’s that dad burned off
switch hiding this week? I see ya dude. You’re getting
a little bit better at hiding, but still hiding under my nose
spray ain’t quite good enough. I’ve got a stopped up
nose and I’m using the nose spray. Maybe next week
ya think you can find a better hiding place hehehehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehe 🙂

When Shadows Fall

When morning comes
with its surprise
the shadows form
from sunny skies.
When shadows fall
they form a place
sometimes landing
on a face.
The seasons change
with minutes on
making shadows
change at dawn.
Time then beckons
very new
when shadows fall
upon our view.
The days surprise
will come at glance
when shadows fall
with song and dance.

While The Moon Shines

As nighttime breaks
with its designs
the stars will dance
while the moon shines.
A beams of moonlight
from up above
will become as a
night of love.
While the moon shines
it helps us to see
the sights all around
a minute degree.
Many find slumber
while the moon shines
and others dance on
as night entwines.
A journal is written
with all that is said
while the moon shines
up over our head.

Tower of Thrills

Like a roller coaster
many will ride
a tower of thrills
until they have died.
Not thinking clearly
how it will end
on a roller coaster
that thrills transcend.
A tower of thrills
can surely mislead
in the excitement
how that you’ll bleed.
Let not your seeking
to lead you to pain
a tower of thrills
as just but a gain.
Look and see clearly
what you are wanting
before it comes as
painful and haunting.

The Life We See

Riding a wave
of now and then
can often lead
to where we’ve been.
The life we see
might seem unfair,
but it’s often
just a glare.
Sights we’ve found
and just perceived
as what all
we have believed.
The life we see
might not be true,
for it might
be me and you.
So let God show
what is to be
and put it in
the life we see.

The Atlantic Breeze

While I’m alone
in this room full of time
the Atlantic breeze
comes into my mind.
The oceans waves
rolling in with the tide
live now as dreams
found deep down inside.
The Atlantic breeze
that I remember
is now just a
burning ember.
Pictures and videos
I see time agin
remind of the place
that we have been.
The solitude style
this place faraway
the Atlantic breeze
lives on now today.
Her and I splashing
as waves come ashore
wanting stay there
a little bit more.
Us with our cameras
and wonderful view
the Atlantic breeze
is me and you.
We watch the birds
that fly and land
while we’re walking
hand in hand.
The Atlantic breeze
is another dawn
that lives within us
on and on.

From Bill Pearce (ME)

Amidst A Smile

So many seasons
bring us a page
written with wording
found on a stage.
Seen often stirring
is wintertime’s while
found then with Christmas
amidst a smile.
Jingling music
found in the snow
also with sounds of
HoHoHoHo.
Amidst a smile
there lives a dream
found with Christmas
all agleam.
The seasons journey
far and wide
leads ones to
what God’s applied.
His Son Jesus
is all the while
the reason for Christmas
amidst a smile.

Many May Follow

Within our footsteps
our footprints show
where we truly
always go.
Many may follow
thinking you’re true
and then become as
dumb as you.
Don’t let your footsteps
deceive what you say.
Know that Lord Jesus
is watching each day.
Many may follow
so be of your best
and don’t let footsteps
to wrongly attest.
Let God to help your
footsteps in time
guided by Jesus
found so divine.
Sure you will falter
footsteps you make,
but in your footprints
Hell will not quake.
For we are human
and learn as we go
many will follow
and maybe grow.
Honest mistakes
we made through time
others can learn
a better design.
Letting God’s blessings
shine through and through
what is much better
for us then to do.

The First Snow

Onwards the weather
changes in time
making its journey
what that I find.
Found as a glimmer
seasons delight
when I see blessings
within my sight.
The first snow falls
so wintery
making joy
for me to see.
Onwards the weather
displays so true
the first snow falling
in my view.
I wait now hoping
dreaming of
that Christmastime
so full of love.
The first snow found
brings that alive
the sight of Christmas
in my eyes.
I seek the moments
there and then
within Christmas
winters wind.
Those blessed sights
that come and go
are Christmas dreams
with the first snow.
Found fluffy white
with a big snow man
and a snow angel
displayed so grand.
Christmastimes moments
come into sight
with the first snow
that I delight.

The Fragrance of Christmas

Looking at the sunrise
that glimmers and shines
I can smell Christmas
its wonderful times.
The fragrance of Christmas
comes in with a scent
found in my minds eye
the greatest extent.
The flavors I’ve tasted
as Christmastime came
are none that no other
has of the same.
All of the aromas
that I smell so well
the fragrance of Christmas
is best in detail.
All of my taste buds
tingle with thrill
while seeking Christmas
of which to fulfill.
The fragrance of Christmas
is so divine
even with the scent of
the Christmas tree pine.
Yes even snowflakes
have their own flavor
found within Christmas
of which that I savor.
It seems that everything
Christmas bestows
brings out a fragrance
found in my nose.

Hidden Treasures

While walking going
here and there
we might miss
what’s found somewhere.
Hidden treasures
missed by sight
that we hurried
day and night.
Things so blessed
sight and sound
hidden treasures
all around.
Sometimes treasures
hidden true
might be right
in front of you.
It will often
need us found
looking there
not all around.
Often blessings
God has given
need our hurry
lesser driven.
Take the time now
look and see
hidden treasures
given free.

Haiku
for Sept 15, 2013

Today is a time
that will not be repeated
but just memorized.

Flowers of summer
find their end days coming soon
as winter comes true..

Yesterdays flowers
might of blossomed with beauty,
but fade within time.

While minutes tick on
our lives will come and then end
only to find peace.

Cherished are shadows
that emulate our feelings
which came with pure joy.

Life we remember
might be a bit imagined
for we were younger.

Nobody’s perfect,
but so many think they are
and fall prey to DUMB.

Beyond this moment
our lives will find some changes
that will surprise us.

Leaving a footprint
in the places that you’ve been
can teach you later.

Within the Earth’s soil
lives chances for things to live
or wither and die.

Looking for blessings
might find you overlooking
what’s right in your view.

Times that we ignore
could be the most important
and haunt us daily.

Scenes found in slumber
are often dreams we’re wanting,
but yet not needing.

As heartbeats are found
there are many missing beats
that need somebody.

The graven image
of who we think we’re to be
might be illusion.

With lucid thinking
comes chances for tomorrow
that can be better.

Mornings with showers
bring aromas of raindrops
that fall from the skies.

When summer’s at end
we find fall and its glory
with colors divine.

A quick thinking thought
can become a slow problem
lasting a good while.

The sights seen outside
can enhance your days thinking
so look cautiously.

Beyond yesterday
lives the things found in today
that we must accept.

Now is just waiting
for then to arrive with thoughts
to make better now.
