Peace Overcomes Me


Hello my friends

How have you been?  We’ve been doing pretty well as we
watch wintertime come closer by the day.  Yep,  it’s pretty
close now at least it is up this way.  I took the boys out for
a little walk in the field just a little while ago and it is most
surely looking like winter.  Not quite cold enough for it yet,
but it’s on its way.  My weather program says that there’s
a little bit of a chance for snow showers this coming Friday
through Sunday.  Personally,  I don’t see it happening,  but
it might surprise me.  It wouldn’t be the first time LOL.  If
it does,  it most surely won’t stick,  because the weather’s
still too warm.  Yes we have a few freezing temps through
the nights,  but it has to stay cold long enough for the old
ground to get cold enough to let the snow stick.  I’m sure
it will start snowing and doing its thing soon enough LOL.
Oh yea,  along with Friday being Halloween it’s also Milo’s
birthday.  He will be 10 years old.  Benny turned 3 back in
July of this year.  There’s 7 years difference in their ages,
plus they are different breeds and all,  but they act just like
brothers hehehe.  If Milo thinks Benny has been outside
too long,  he will start barking at us and nudging us to go
and let him in.  Benny’s a little explorer and he loves to go
outside and run around the house,  but when it’s raining,
he prefers to stay inside.  He hates the rain,  but he adores
the snow.  So,  he will hold his bladder as long as he can
before he will give in and ask to go outside in the rain to
empty it LOL ;).  Milo doesn’t care one way or the other
about snow or rain.  When he’s gotta go,  he’s gotta go
and it don’t matter if it’s raining or snowing,  he wants
out,  but he makes it quick and runs back up to the door
and barks saying “I’m done” and we let him back inside.
Milo is my little shadow on Sundays when Judy is gone
to her sisters house to take care of her mom.  Benny
just holds up in the living room on his favorite recliner
until Judy comes home,  or until he hears me opening
a can of dog food LOL.  Milo follows me all around
the house.  If I go to the bathroom,  he will be sitting
right in front of the door waiting for me to come out :).
Benny does the same when Judy’s home hehehehe.
Actually they do it to the both of us.  Our little shadows
with four legs.  It’s not raining at the moment,  but it
sure looks like it could any time now.  So,  what else is
there to yammer about :)?  Our neighbor came and
borrowed some cooking oil the other day and yesterday
they came and gave us some fresh banana bread that
his wife/girlfriend made.  It was real good too.  Judy
and I had it for a late night snack and then the last of
it for breakfast hehehe.  OK,  so now I’m out of soda
water.  I’ve gotta head to the kitchen and get another
Mountain Dew :).  I’m back!  I saw that Benny had
left his perch in the living room and is now lying on our
bed.  I petted him for a moment and he rolled over on
his back wanting me to rub his tummy hehehe.  He is
so silly.  Anyways,  onwards with my rambling.  Oh yea,
here lately,  the Dish Network has removed some of
our favorite channels due to a price war with Turner
Broadcasting.  So now we don’t have Boomerang or
the Cartoon Network dag blast it.  Oh well,  I guess
we will survive hehehe.  They also removed TruTV,
but it’s supposed to be temporary just as the cartoons
were supposed to be,  so we will see.  Anyways,  that’s
a petty problem.  It’s not like there’s nothing else to
watch hehehe.  We had just gotten into the habit of
watching cartoons when we went to bed.  Our favorite
was the Loony Tunes LOL.  Well,  what else is going
on around this place?  To be honest,  it’s been pretty
quiet around here and with all of the rain this passed
week we weren’t able to take to boys for a walk in
the field and Judy and I have been taking advantage of
our treadmill.  Benny has been getting curious about
the treadmill and even gotten on it a time or two,  but
we haven’t yet turned it on so he could try it out LOL.
I might do that soon,  but Milo is scared of the vacuum
cleaner,  so he doesn’t come near the treadmill when
it’s on hehehe.  In any sense,  I’ll manage to get them
a work out one way or another :).  I guess when it snows
I’ll have to start digging trails for them again hehehe.
I might try to dig longer trails than I’ve done in the
past though so they can really get some walking done.
It gives me a work out just digging the trails.  Often
I have to make tons of trips outside,  before I get
the trails laid out.  My old body won’t let me do too
much anymore,  but I’ll do what I can.  I love those
little boys and want to keep them healthy and happy.
My moms arm is still giving her trouble after she
broke a few weeks ago.  Hopefully it finally heals
and eases up with the pain.  The doctor said it was
healed,  but the other day she moved her wrist and
she said it popped and has hurt ever since.  I hope
your arm gets better real soon mom.  I’ll be praying
for you as always :).  Love ya bunches.  Now what
else is there to yammer about hehehe?  Well it looks
like that’s about it.  God has kept His mighty Hands
over us protecting us as always.  He has always been
there for me,  whether I knew it or not.  He allows
what He knows that I need to go through,  to get me
where I need to be,  but He has been known to put
a road block in front of some areas that He knows
I cannot handle.  I might have wanted it or that in
that moment so much that I could taste it,  but He
knew it was not for me.  I know we have loved ones
that leave us (in our eyes) way too soon as they find
Heavens doors.  But it is their time whether we think
it is or not.  God knows best.  He deals with all life
and death as it is supposed to happen.  Yet,  if we
look at the bright side,  we can find ourselves seeing
them again when our time comes.  That is what that
keeps me sane.  Peace overcomes me when I feel
my friends and family’s spirits all around me smiling
that have gone on before me.  I can often feel my
daddy’s hand on my shoulder while I’m writing my
journal.  He always used to call them my sermons 🙂
and he would take them with him to church to use
to teach.  Thank You God for all that You have done
and all that You will do for the greater of mankind.
Now I believe I have finished rambling and it’s now
time for me to begin my search back through all that
I’ve written here to see if I can find a good word or
phrase that I can use for the title for today’s brand
new poem.  So,  it’s away I go to that place of my
recollection that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I think I stumbled upon a decent title and
after checking I see that I haven’t used it as of yet,
but it’s gonna get used today LOL.  Here goes.

Peace Overcomes Me

When cloudy skies come
with raindrops that fall
peace overcomes me
with love overall.
I might be saddened
with times passing days,
but I find peaceful
that comes from the grays.
Often those storm clouds
that bring us the rain
also show rainbows
through our windowpane.
Peace overcomes me
with seasons in a sight
bringing their patterns
when it’s surely right.
Springtime’s arrival
brings sights I can see
with flowers blooming,
peace overcomes me.
Then as the seasons
will change colors sight
autumn comes sharing
its moments so bright.
Soon after autumn
the cold winds will blow
bringing us winter
with white fallen snow.
Peace overcomes me
when those seasons come
sent down from Heaven
and Jesus God’s Son.

There ya go.  I hope you enjoyed the poem and maybe
even my rambling hehehe.  It’s 5:30 in the evening and
48 F degrees.  It’s supposed to get down to the mid to
upper 30’s by morning.  Not too bad huh :)!  I just went
in to check on Benny and it looks like he has taken over
my side of the bed LOL.  Oh well,  I’m not using it LOL.
I suspect that Judy won’t be home until late tonight as
usual.  I hope she stops and gets us something to eat
like hamburgers or whatever hehehe,  but if she doesn’t
I’m sure we will find something to eat :).  Milo had a fly
bugging him a little bit ago,  but I think it’s finally moved
on hehehe.  I’m surprised to see a fly being it’s been a
bit on the cool side lately,  but it seems we have some
diehards LOL.  Judy and I have got to go and put their
pool,  doghouse and our picnic table back under wrap
sometime this week.  They can’t stay where they are,
or the snowplow will make quick work of them hehehe.
The snowy season is just around the corner.  Ok,  so
I guess it’s time for me to put the brakes on before I
end up in Rambles Ville again :).  It’s time for me to tell
you what  tell you almost every week and that is, I wrote
some more poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems
with 2 of them being sort of Christmassy,  but one of
the Christmas poems is about the boys and there’s one
none Christmas poem about the boys as well.  I also
wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there.
I hope you find one or two of either or both that you
like.  Now,  I believe it’s time for me to be searching
for that not so elusive off switch,  but not before I wish
you a most wonderful weekend or at least what’s left of
it and a blessings filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves
you and we do too.  Ok,  where are ya hiding this week?
For a little off switch,  you sure have trouble hiding your
tiny self LOL.  For Heaven’s sake,  I can see you as
plain as day.  Trying to hide behind my keyboard might
work better if you were lying down and not standing up.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

As Storms Arrive

When stormy skies
come crashing through
seek for peace in
a hidden view.
Often blue skies
come to be found
when you seek Jesus
and His solid ground.
Sometimes emotions
are shaken and stirred
as storms arrive
with moments absurd.
Yet with Lord Jesus
those storms will fade
into a rainbow
so Heavenly laid.
So when some troubles
come alive
let Jesus help you
as storms arrive.

Santa Paws

Winter comes briskly
with scenes we can see
such as old Santa’s
beard white as can be.
Dreams of the children
found deep in the night
take off and fly with
a Christmassy flight.
Santa might bring his
dogs in his sleigh
to keep him company
a Christmassy way.
Then on the rooftops
with old Santa Claus
you might then also
see small Santa paws.
Little tiny footprints
from his little boys
four legged Santa’s
with small bags of toys.
Santa’s little helpers
you might surely hear
barking in the night
this Christmassy year.
Then as old Santa
is ready to leave
him and his doggies
are seen Christmas eve.
With a loud Merry Christmas
from old Santa Clause
and a few little barks
from his Santa paws.

Losing Sight

Mornings come
with hopeful dreams
found as sometimes
rushing streams.
Then some ripples
bring a fright
that might cause our
losing sight.
New days journeys
come to be
with each morning
that we see.
Sometimes choices
that we make
bring the problems
we partake.
Yet it might be
written so
that it’s time
for you to go.
The fact so surely
wrong or right
many find they’re
losing sight.
Not seeing truly
what’s to be,
but just dreaming
what to see.
Losing sight of
what that’s real,
might explode to
what you feel.

After We’re Gone

So many people
will surely deny
that they are harmful
to their by and by.
They don’t realize
how they are seen
when they’re gone
not so pristine.
After we’re gone
our shadows show
what we did then
to and fro.
The essence of
our dusk to dawn
might show truly
after we’re gone.
The pages we made
within our looks
might be exposed
within our books.
The written segues
that we said
might become
our days of dread.
After we’re gone
with not a sight
we will learn
our wrong and right.
Don’t live empty
lives insane.
Seek for Heaven
to attain.
Let our pathways
dusk to dawn
show of Jesus
after we’re gone.

Winter White

As Christmas comes
into our sight
we might see
some winter white.
Snow that’s falling
from the skies
making views
before our eyes.
That winter white
of Christmastime
makes a seasonal
great design.
Billows of snow
seen far and wide
as we stand
and look outside.
Watching snowflakes
Christmassy fall
landing on trees
so evergreen tall.
Glistening surely
within the sun
that winter white
is Christmassy fun.
Many found sleighing
down some hills
or tossing snowballs
of winter thrills.
That winter white
so Christmassy so
helps me to find
that Christmastime glow.
With just a snowflake
falling to Earth
I am reminded
of Jesus Christ’s birth.
He washes my sins
away with a smile
in a winter white
seemingly style.
So as I’m watching
snowflakes that fall
I can see Jesus
standing so tall.
Found as a flavor
each day and night
I dream of Christmas
found so winter white.

Inside Looking Out

So many people
are empty inside
while looking outside
and trying to hide.
Found deep within them
their emptiness grows,
but on the outside
the lie only shows.
We might be looking
at just but a shell,
not seeing inside
what is not so well.
Yet as that person
walks daily through time
they might then one day
seem not so sublime.
Inside looking out
with their own two eyes
might just be hiding
some real cloudy skies.
So are you someone
that looks all about
with that of sadness
inside looking out?
Don’t let your ego
to torment you so
while hiding something
that ones need to know
Tell someone truly
what goes on inside
and you might find you
with much less to hide.
Inside looking out
might find you a smile
that being truthful
will help all the while.

God Finds A Way

When we are weary
and need a hand
God finds a way
to help us withstand.
When there are problems
that seem as to grow
God finds a way
to make peace bestow.
If our ship’s sinking
with waves crashing in
God finds a way
to make peace begin.
When you are lonely
and needing someone
God finds a way
through Jesus His Son.
When the days burdens
have caught up to you
God finds a way
to help with your view.
When you are empty
with no love inside
God finds a way
to show love applied.
It just takes a little
of your own to find
peace in a moment
of your time to time.
God finds a way
to help you and I,
but it take us to
let God apply.

Four Pawed Boys

Our two boys
of barking styles
are with toothy
little smiles.
Four pawed boys
of days delight
keep on going
through the night.
They’re our boys
with a lot of hair
bouncing around
without a care.
Four pawed boys
so filled with love
that were gifts
from God above.
Benny and Milo
are their names
and they love to
play their games.
Playing chase
inside and out,
but we love
without a doubt.
They’re a boys
we love them so
in the rain
and in the snow.
Benny loves to
hide from me
in the snow
so I can’t see.
His big brother’s
not the same,
he doesn’t care for
snow or rain.
Though he’ll sometimes
decide to go
out with Benny
in the snow.
Four pawed boys
with love divine
fill our home with
peace sublime.

The Passing Days

While walking onwards
in our will and ways
ones find our footprints
in the passing days.
One step then the other
is made in our stride
leaving some footprints
we might wish to hide.
In the passing days
we might find constructed
what’s with our meanings
of timeframes obstructed.
Sometimes our footprints
will not show so well,
as all our meanings
get portrayed in Hell.
Yet if your intentions
are pure and of good
God will make sure that
ones see what they should.
Don’t be deceived by
some ill witted ways.
Let God show His glory
within the passing days.

Rivers To Nowhere

River rocks smoothing
as waters will flow
leading to somewhere
or where all they go.
Some are misleading
with journeys in sand
rivers to nowhere
with no place to stand.
Often those rivers
will just turn around
heading right back to
some dry solid ground.
Yet there are rivers
that circle their view
not headed nowhere
but then thereunto.
Rivers to nowhere
are journeys we find
headed to somewhere
with nowheres design.
Some so misleading
as doorways to fame
rivers to nowhere
with nothing to gain.

Life has surprises
that come when least expected
sometimes not wanted.

As today finds end
there are things we may ponder
such as how we did.

Love has a few names
such as infatuation
that will fade away.

On an uphill stride
you might find yourself weakened,
but downhill will come.

Slip and slide ventures
could end in a sticker yard
with bad memories.

With many counting
the numbers might not add up
due to ignorance.

As the moon comes out
it shines as a reflector
of what the sun has.

is a story wrongly read
while skipping pages.

Belief in spirits
gives us power to believe
in Heaven above.

God shows us mercy
as we often make mistakes
due to humanity.

Some are filled with lies
as they attempt to show proof
of what they have done.

Marking a milestone
gives a starting place in time
to learn something more.

When just sat idle
the world still continues on,
but without your style.

Autumns leave will fall
as the weather turns colder
and wintertime shines.

Finding a snowflake
that looks the same as others
will keep you busy.

As nightfall turns dark
the scenes in sky start changing
with moonlight and stars.

With a little breeze
all the trees begin to sway
with dancing branches.

The windows of chill
come as wintertime’s story
that ones read with snow.

Having a hardship
that you cannot ever change
can make you stronger.

Money causes problems
when it’s put before your needs
and value is looks.

Life can be crazy
with some mirrors reflecting
what might be facade.

Beyond our eyesight
holds many things important,
such as air we breathe.
