Speed Bumps and Walls


Hello my friends

So how’ve ya been? I hope you’ve been staying on the good side.
If not, I pray that you find some peace soon. Well, to begin with,
it’s snowing again. Surprised hehehe, I think not! It doesn’t feel
too bad temperature wise though. Judy and some others at work
bought some new work shoes from the company and they’re giving
them all the foot aches. Judy is going to try to start wearing them
on Fridays in hopes of breaking them in. There’s already been a
few call in for days off due to foot aches LOL. I told Judy what I
used to do with new work shoes. Stretching them with my hands
and all, but she said she will just wear them once a week and that
might slowly break them in. Oh well hehehe, she has shoes and
that’s all that matters. We’ve been getting back into watching
videos on our TV in the bedroom like we used to do in the past.
That’s fun :)! We use it as movie night. I’ll fix us something to eat
and we’ll climb in bed and enjoy. We are still doing our farms
in FarmTown, FarmVille and Country Life as well as the other
games such as Pet Society LOL. PetVille has too many problems
for me. It’s way too slow for one. Yet we both go there once in
a blue moon hehehe and get our pets out of the pound LOL!!!!!
Life is good. Weird, but good hehehe! Yeppers :), life in this
old household is at times strange, but then that’s what keeps it
interesting LOL. I haven’t done another conga drum video in
a long while. I might do a little recording this week. God only
knows :). Gotta let my fingers heal first. The cold weather has
them cracking along with old arthritis aches and pains LOL.
It sucks getting old huh! Oh well, life goes on as it may with
its speed bumps and walls. God let’s us experience what we
need to so to help us with the next moment. Life may seem as
jumbled confusion to you, but the pieces are falling into place
as God intends. Looking back on my past, I wonder how many
guardian angels I wore out LOL. They were probably doing a
tag team on me hehehe. Tag me out will ya, he has me in the
ropes and I’m pooped. It’s your turn angel number 99 hehehe!
Yep, I’m reasonably sure many of us gave our guardian angels
sent from God and run for their money, hehe not meaning in
any factor that they have any use for money. I know many
that gave God the dickens of a time, but today the same as me
they are working for Him. God knew the outcome and knew
what He needed to allow to happen in our lives. The struggles
made us stronger. Well, I looked outside again and it’s still
snowing. The snow is so beautiful as it falls from the skies. I
simply love to watch it snow. God sends us beauty often and
we will be found just looking for the problems within it rather
than seeing the beauty of which God’s given. Don’t just let
yourself search for all the problems. Search for the beauty
within the essence of thereof. If you feel like frowning then
take a deep breath and smile. You might even get a laugh
from the faces that you make while trying to smile hehehe.
Sometimes we just need to jump start the smile. Go ahead
and give it a try. You’ve nothing to lose. So OK, it’s about
time for me to be taking my little venture back through all
that I’ve written to see if I can find a good word or phrase
that will work for the title for today’s brand new poem. So
it’s off I go to that place of recollection that I like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I stumbled on a good title
a bit back. Now let’s see what I can do with it if in fact
anything hehehehe…

Speed Bumps and Walls

Time table journeys
speed bumps and walls
give us the lessons
from bad that befalls.
Looking glass doorways
linked thereunto
make a little clearer
for journeys to view.
All of the speed bumps
and walls that we find
somehow make rhythms
to help change our mind.
Sometimes our troubles
that God allows seen
may have the answers
to change self esteem.
Speed bumps and walls
from times setting sun
might have the answers
that’s not yet begun.

Hehehe made ya think huh LOL! Did ya ever wonder how I
come up with these poems. All I can say is God keeps me full
of thoughts. One thing nobody has ever said to me, was hey
Bill, take time to think hehe! It seems that I am always with
my many thoughts. It makes it hard to rest though :). I think
my brain refuses to go into hibernation LOL. I guess the day
will come when my brain shuts down hehehe. Oh well, until
then, I will keep on writing. I guess I need to be telling you
about the poems and haikus I wrote Saturday huh! Yeppers,
I wrote 10 more poems, one of which is another poem to my
lovely wife and another is a wintry style poem hehehehehehe.
I also I wrote 25 haiku instead of 22 by mistake :). When I
get to writing haikus, it’s sometimes hard for me to stop :).
Oh well hehehehe, I hope ya enjoy a few of them if not all.
So now it’s coming to the time that I must be searching for
that old off switch, but before I do that I want to wish you a
wonderful week. Remember Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now where’s that off switch hiding at this time??????????
There ya are ya little varmint hehehe. You really need to
find a better place to hide other than under my mouse pad.
Gotcha hehehe. See ya, CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haikus :).

What You Heard

Words of wonder
said and seen
might not display
what we mean.
One times story
found on cue
might be found as
words untrue.
Often many
will be found
heard as wordings
slight unsound.
Yes the wording
might be said
with the meanings
slight misled.
Listen closely
to each word
and make sure
it’s what you heard.

Let Not Actions

Lingering footsteps
walk as a phase
while they remember
some other days.
Times of torment
might just linger
as a sad songs
timeless singer.
Let the then times
be as stages
such as lessons
different pages.
Don’t let lingering
things you’ve done
be tomorrows
rising sun.
Use the lessons
shadows show
as the guides
of where to go.
Let not actions
from back then
to be the bad times
begun agin.

Many Timeframes

Young persuasions
long ago
may describe now
what we know.
Minds of mishaps
setting sun
might of helped
today be done.
Yet the seasons
young and true
can’t be changed
by me or you.
So tomorrow
from today
use the lessons
learned a way.
Many timeframes
from back then
can be tools
to help begin.

From What We Do

Weathers windows
opened closed
make the pictures
it’s supposed.
Seamless ventures
in a way
display weathers
times at play.
I watch daily
with each change
as sometimes it’s
sometimes strange.
Weathers doorways
that we see
might be windows
Listen closely
to each sound
that the weather
brings around.
You might learn
what seasons true
are brought on
from what we do.

Help To Guide You

Long time journeys
from distant views
might be found
with worn out shoes.
Often journeys
that we make
are but only
times mistake.
Yet the journeys
that we’ve seen
will have meanings
red or green.
The meanings may
say stop or start
more times journeys
to impart.
Let the journeys
other day
help to guide you
through the gray.

We’re Often Hiding

So many people
just sit and await
what that the future
brings into their date.
So many people
do not even try
to change the future
of their by and by.
Often some people
will just sit and stare
saying that truly
they don’t even care.
Yet deep inside them
the truth does display
that they are wanting
a much different way.
We’re often hiding
how we really feel
and not displaying
what is truly real.

A Lifetime In Store

Pictures with meanings
hang on the wall
showing the fragments
of times standing tall.
All of the memories
found in a frame
seem to enhance a
wonderful name.
Long ago portholes
time slipped into
show me the moments
that I came to you.
Miles were as minutes
dust had been freed
on a mere journey
to surely succeed.
Moments arrival
smiled then in tune
such from the sight of
the man in the moon.
We then together
held hands that day
as we made pictures
with so much to say.
Now years have passed
with pictures and more
with us together
a lifetime in store.

To Judy Ann Pearce
From William Earl Pearce II

I Love you Judy

Life’s Tangerine

Windy days passion
blows here and there
with all the blessings
from minutes of prayer.
Some windy times
are found as a gaze
as true emotion
from wonderful days.
Windy days passion
may be seen well
as but a moment
that time did foretell.
Hands held together
in windy cuisine
creates the flavors
of life’s tangerine.
Winds so enlightened
are blown as a breeze
as all the passion
of flowers and trees.
True love will blossom
when winds are at hand
making the passion
to help life withstand.
In life’s tangerine
there’s nothing to waste
made from the blessings
that are there for a taste.

Often We’re Seeking

Often our thinking
is not in sync
with all the ways that
others will think.
Often our judging
is but a scene
with all the ways
we think things mean.
Often our minutes
are found awry
within a segment
of how we get by.
Often our journals
written in time
will show fragments
of another design.
Often our blessings
are not at all,
for we’re misreading
the time standing tall.
Often our segments
ventured ahead
are only segues
of times riverbed.
Often we’re seeking
for our own applaud
when we should be
so thankful to God.

I’m Just Awaiting

Laces of snowflakes
fall from the sky
painting the meadows
as they seem to fly.
Then all the laces
of snowflakes will land
there in the meadow
in the palm of God’s hand.
All of the snowflakes
gather around
to paint the pictures
all over the ground.
Laced up real nicely
together anew
all of the snowflakes
create a view.
Each flake uniquely
connects in a day
so to make pictures
within its display.
Now I am watching
and waiting so true
to see what else
those snowflakes will do.
Will they be blowing
and gathering around
so to make mountains
right here on the ground?
Will they be melting
and leaving their frame
of all the laces
from seasons that came?
I’m just awaiting
the moments to view
to see what visions
will surely come true.

for Feb 20, 2010

Cling to a rhythm
and you will surely get beat.
Allow some changes.

Many will falter
with misadventures of life,
yet lessons exist.

While looking around
you might miss the good in front.
See what you have now.

Hearts that are beating
give chances for tomorrow
using God’s Own Love.

A line that is drawn
will be of greater value
if straight to the point.

The harvest of fields
will become most abundant
when taken care of.

Energy wasted
is the same as useless wants.
Focus on the needs.

Points from here to there
connect somewhere in-between.
See how you got there.

Hazards are sand traps
in the golf course’s of life.
Watch out where you putt.

Lifestyles found jagged
might be as honey to bees.
Trouble will be found.

A sewing machine
needs some thread to do its job.
Let Jesus use you.

Links are envisioned
as you and I together
that sometimes need oil.

Seen through a dream
is a life that is surreal.
Some dreams do come true.

Spending a quarter
can make someone’s life better
if spent correctly.

While looking outwards
our vision tends to ignore
what that’s found inside.

Angels from Heaven
are sent to us from Lord God
to watch over us.

Within a mirror
is sight of our emotion
that so many hide.

Essence of peaceful
is found in many blessings
we might overlook.

Time is a catchphrase
found with so many meanings
lesser or greater.

Toggled as a switch
ones that play with emotions
might discern wrongly.

Places remembered
might become the memories
to help get you by.

Snowdrifts concluded
from the winds of time that blew,
may become beauty.

Yesterdays hard times
might be the tools for today
or maybe later.

We are not perfect,
for we all will make mistakes.
Jesus is perfect.

Learned in a classroom
is sometimes just the patience
to listen and learn.
