Since The Beginning


Hello my friends

We’re still kicking up the dirt around here.
Judy and I have been enjoying the weather
and watching the days fly by. The boys are
doing good. Rocky is right behind me now
playing with his squeaky toys. The weather
has been nice. It’s getting cooler with each
passing week. I went on line last Thursday
and bought us a 40 volt battery operated
snow blower from SEARS. It will sure be
great not having to shovel so much. Yes I
know, I’ll still have to shovel around the car
and a few places, but it will help us to be
able to get out of our driveway without me
breaking my back trying to clear a path.
Also it will work great to make poop paths
for the boys. As long as I get to it before
the snow gets above 6 inches. Much above
that and I’ll have to use the shovel. That’s
OK! It will take the load off of my back
and shoulders. I do love to watch it snow
and see the beauty that comes in sight as
the snow lands and starts decorating. Our
grandson came to stay with us yesterday.
Saturday was his 14th birthday. He said he
wanted to stay the night also so Judy got
in touch with his mom (her daughter) and
asked if he could stay and she said yes.
He slept on the recliner in the living room
as he always does, but I think he stayed
up all night playing with the tablet that
his Uncle Dennis and Aunt Trudy gave
him for his birthday 🙂 I think he comes
for our Internet hehehe. Oh well, We
enjoy him being here. We watched a few
Dragonball Z videos and some videos
on the Youtube. Judy and I bought him
a birthday cake and we all went to town
and got us something to eat. He wanted
pizza so he got pizza. Judy and I got us
some sub sandwiches from SUBWAY.
It was a nice day. Judy and I have been
still working on Rocky and trying to get
him potty trained. Last night was the first
night since we started putting him in
his crate to sleep, that we let him sleep
out of it with Benny. LOL and the first
thing he did, was head over to the crate
and climb in hehehe. I went and petted
him and he sort of came out, then he
got out and went and laid down beside
Benny in a doggy bed. I think he was
just a little bit confused, but he soon
fell asleep and he didn’t make potty in
the house, YEAH. If we can ever get
to where we can trust him more, we’ll
start taking him and Benny with us agin
when we go somewhere, but the last
time we took him, he made a freaking
stinky mess in the car and it took me a
while to clean it up. Fortunately we’ve
got the rear seats covered with a dog
protection cover, but some poop still
got on the seat, so I had to scrub it
with cleaner. It’s good as new now 🙂
But we’ll wait a little longer before we
trust to take him with us and Benny
has gotta stay with him, because he
doesn’t like to be alone. I’m sure that
in a week or so we’ll be able to take
them both with us. Of course we can
take them with us if we’re going for a
short drive or not leaving them in the
car alone for any amount of time, but
the time Rocky made his mess was
when we went to Walmart. LOL and
little Benny had climbed up into the
front seat to try and get away from
the mess. LOL he couldn’t stand the
smell and believe you me, it was a
stinky ride home UGH. Anyways,
off to another topic hopefully not
about poop hehehe. Judy is in here
now browsing the Internet. Christian
stuck his head in here just a bit ago to
say good morning. LOL I can’t wait
for the first good snowing so I can
use our snow blower hehehe. I’ve
never owned one, but then again I
am from Texas and there’s not much
use for a snow blower there LOL.
Yes, I have lived up here for over
7 years now, but I had been doing
Ok with a shovel, but I ain’t getting
any younger 🙂 I turned 59 last week
and my body turned what feels like
100 hehehe. It’s been through Hell
and back. Where is Heaven when
you need it LOL? I guess we’ve got
to take the bad with the good huh.
Yep, I enjoy taking pictures of God’s
beauty, but sometimes the journey
to the photos gets the best of me 🙂
I was taking a little trip back through
all of our old photos from Texas last
night. Ones we took down at Port
Aransas and thereabouts. Watching
a few of the videos that we took of
the ocean sure made me smile. We
have thousands of pictures and many
videos that bring back the memories
of our favorite places. I wish digital
cameras would have been out when
I was much younger. I’d have a lot
more pictures of family and friends.
In the old film camera days, you
weren’t guarantied that the pictures
you took were going to be any good.
Plus you were very limited on how
many you could take. You couldn’t
take tons of pictures as you do now.
Problems with film, would be that
if it got too hot it would ruin and the
same if it got too cold. The film would
either over expose, double expose or
like so often has happened in the past,
forgot to take the lens cap off and the
pictures came out black. Nope I do
not miss those old cameras at ALL.
I would love to have some pictures of
some of my old friends from childhood
and my first dog/best friend. I have so
much that I wish I had photos of, but
now it only lives as memories. Great
moments such as me and my Papa
fishing the night away together in his
boat on Lake Tawakanii. Wonderful
moments that I wish I had been able to
photograph. I do though remember
them well. So, now days, Judy and
I take as many pictures as we cane
of each moment that comes before us
so we can reminisce them as time
goes by. I stopped writing for a bit
to fix Judy, Christian and me some
breakfast. He stuck his head in and
asked, when are we gonna eat and
Judy said Grandpa will fix it in a bit.
I stopped shortly after and headed to
the kitchen and so did the boys. Yep
Benny and Rocky followed me in and
watched. Rocky decided that he was
gonna get a close up look as he sat
right in my way LOL. In front of the
refrigerator, the cupboard and the
oven LOL. He would follow me to
wherever I happened to be or plant
himself where I needed to go hehehe.
Benny watched from the living room.
So, we have eaten breakfast which
to many of you at this time frame is
brunch hehehe. This home has most
definitely been blessed. God has
taken care of us since the beginning.
Even before I met Judy I could see
where He had stepped in with His
Mighty Hands and protected me to
shine for future days. Yes, I have
had many struggles to which many
have never known, because I lived
a life of no tears exposed. No, I did
not let people see me cry. I thought
it would be a sign of weakness, but
found out later that showing my tears
was a sign of strength allowing ones
to help me. The Animal of today is
not afraid to cry, but yet still will
hold it in as long as possible. Crying
over spilled milk so to say brings no
help for the times that you really do
need help. Sort of like crying wolf.
I reckon it’s time for me to begin
my journey back through all that I
have written here to see if I can find
a good word or phrase that I can
use for the title of today’s brand new
poem. So, away I go to that lil place
of my recollection that I always like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think
I found a good title and now to see if
I can do anything with it LOL.

Since The Beginning

When days were but only
some times long ago
God brought us blessings
that many don’t know.
Since the beginning
He watched with His Love
sharing His blessings
from Heaven above.
He gave us so much
that was not a need,
yet ones are so often
filled full of greed.
Since the beginning
we’ve each strived so true
to do many things
we saw others do.
God provided gifts
to be you and me
since the beginning
of our history.
Each with our own gift
of walking our way,
ones that are drumming
with their own display.
We are given choices,
but need to choose well
not letting Satan
to take us to Hell.
Since the beginning
our growth has begun
ones learning better
with each rising sun.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling and
maybe even the poem LOL. Hopefully
you understood it. My life is a journey
that often leads to nowhere hehehehe.
Often it’s just a little stumble through
the day without any direction intended.
I just head out taking pictures of every
little thing that comes into my field of
view/or not LOL. I’m almost always
with my camera in hand. Every once
in a while I’ll luck into a great shot.
So, OK, I guess I need to stop here
before I get caught up into Rambles
Ville again hehehe, but before I do
I want to thank you for all of your
prayers for my granddaughter Sami.
She is out of the hospital now and
doing well. Now to tell you what I
tell you almost every week and that
is, I wrote some more poems and
haiku. Yeppers 10 more poems, but
none of them are Christmas related
this week. Also I wrote 22 more
haiku for all of the haiku lovers out
there. I hope you can find maybe 1
or 2 of either or both that you like.
Now, it’s time for me to begin my
search for that no so elusive off
switch, but not before I wish you
a most magnificent weekend or
whatever’s left of it and a truly
blessings filled week. Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.
OK, so where is that confounded
off switch trying to hide this week?
Hmm, me thinks I might see a bit
of movement behind my glass of
orange juice hehehe. Yep, gotcha,
see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill, Judy, Benny, Rocky
and the spirit of Milo Pearce

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Discretional Moments

Chosen by a person
of their own little way
discretional moments
are of their display.
So many choices
with patterns to choose
discretional moments
are then win or lose.
Found in the mirror
ones might see hindsight
discretional moments
that did not go right.
So some discretion
might need thought over
before they get crushed
by a learning bulldozer.
Discretional moments
will sometimes be good,
for they are sometimes
doing what you should.

Disruptive Thoughts

Repetitive thinking
might keep you lost
feeling your life with
disruptive thoughts.
Links to illusions
will come from inside
things that we wish for
that time has denied.
Disruptive thinking
will lead you astray
due to the mishaps
from some other day.
Often our patterns
will form from a while
that some disruption
did one day compile.
So don’t let others
with life surely lost
to come and fill you
with disruptive thoughts.
Use what God gave you
to think and procure
much better actions
not filled with manure.
Disruptive thoughts
can become who you are
if you allow them
to guide you too far.

Various Eyes

Scenes that we’re seeing
from ground to the skies
might look much different
in various eyes.
Each with our eyesight
and things that we view
might be uniquely
just me or just you.
Various people
will see fluffy clouds
and then some others
will see rain with shrouds.
The mornings sunrise
has new things to view
and various eyes
will see red and blue.
Flowers found blooming
will give scents to smell
that various eyes
might not see so well.
The moments renditions
from ground to the skies
might seem so different
with various eyes.

Early September

Now with the minutes
the moments are gone
August has left us
a September dawn.
Early September
brings fall soon to show
followed by winter
and its time to snow.
September wonders
are now so alive
pages of glimmers
with colors to thrive.
Early September
is slow with its voice,
but it will soon be
with colors rejoice.
Blending October
with its sort of flair,
early September
gives its love and care.
Even November
will display the same
seen with the colors
of September’s game.
So let the blessings
be great to remember
the things that began
with early September.

Found In The Clouds

Seasons are changing,
the skies rearranging,
found in the clouds
with momentous crowds.
Each with its journey
the skies own attorney,
clouds of pure white
or darkness in sight.
God’s Own emotions
are found as some oceans
in the sky up above
and filled with His love.
The clouds seem to be
floating in the sea
as a picture floats in
with change to begin.
Found in the clouds
are sights of some shrouds
that hide the sunshine
with God’s Own design.

Celestial Journey

A trip through the cosmos
with ones imagination
can become a journey
of unknown destination.
A celestial journey
to some place faraway
starts with a thought
and dream to display.
That dream can become
a fantastic wonder
headed far beyond
the lightning and thunder.
With but a second
your mind can take flight,
a celestial journey
found in the night.
A dream oh so wonderful
found in your mind
displaying wormholes,
a new place and time.
A celestial journey
that might just come true
if you believe
that it’s within you.

Simply Believe

With faith comes the power
to let bygones lay
for Jesus Christ hears us
when we kneel and pray.
Life turns disaster
with worrisome weave,
but peace will be given
to simply believe.
Not allowing Hell bent
to live in your heart,
will allow Heaven sent
to then impart.
So simply believe now,
let God live in you
in the ways that you’re thinking
and things that you do.
Sometimes a moment
is how you perceive
and good can be found then
simply believe.

Horizon With Colors

The distant horizon
shows colors so fine
painted as pictures
that are so divine.
A horizon of colors
of red, blue and green
brings us the pictures
that look like a dream.
Seasons will change each
distant found view,
colors united
into something new.
Pinks and some oranges
paint up the sky
with many brush strokes
ones can’t deny.
Each day brings flavors
the distant sky covers
painted emotions
horizon of colors.

An Impending Breath

New lives encounter
a new way to view
with every moment
and new things to do.
An impending breath
comes forth with a style
sometimes from many
that have not a smile.
So many people
will just frown away
when many others
see a new day.
An impending breath
that small eyes look through
display perceptions
found so anew.
So take a breath now
and breathe in a prayer
an impending breath
so filled with fresh air.
Let loose your sadness,
and learn how to smile
an impending breath
not found as so vile.
Look now today now
and see what can grow
from life’s impending ways
with Jesus to know.

Door To My Heart

Miles through a moment
counted a way
a long time ago
to one distant day.
The door to my heart
opened real wide
allowing true love
to come deep inside.
Miles didn’t matter
for love brought me through
the door to my heart
was opened by you.
We were united
as one family
and the door to my heart
became you and me.
We found the years
were gathered with love
bonded with heartbeats
from Lord God above.

To Judy Ann Pearce
From William Earl Pearce
I love you

for Sept 4, 2015

Tomorrow’s doorway
might not hold good within it,
but chance needs taken.

Often confusion
will come from lack of lessons
taught from our childhood.

When moving forwards
you might leave some things behind
that you’re still wanting.

As today moves on
tomorrow finds a heartbeat
within the days stage.

Belonging to groups
won’t make you anybody,
for they are not you.

Parts of oxygen
come to us as what we drink
and then what we breathe.

Linking to mishap
will grow you a large thorn bush
that will leave a pain.

Giving of yourself
will give back a great feeling
that money can’t buy.

Looking for peaceful
might uncover your own thoughts
if you look within.

The changing of times
are some doorways with handles
that open and close.

Lines we’ve created
might not be as straight as thought,
for they might be bent.

Disabled people
still have abilities in life,
but more limited.

Between some bookends
holds a place for a few books
to teach in a way.

Living with a lie
will make life miserable
for the truth is there.

Becoming a man
is not done with cowboy spurs,
but by growing up.

In the oceans deep
there’s many different things
that we haven’t found.

Now is a moment
that will soon become the past
with future to come.

Describing yourself
could become real hard to do
if you are lying.

Lost in perception
finds many with their own view
of a certain sight.

A vine for swinging
might one day fail to hold you
as you fall to Earth.

When getting older
the numbers mean not a thing,
for they don’t say smart.

A clown with a smile
might be hiding misery
and laughing loudly.
