Bumpy Roads


Hello my friends

Well I’m getting a late start on my writing
today being that Judy and I went over her
daughters house to have dinner and visit
and we didn’t get back till a little while ago.
Mandy can cook great.  Judy and I had a
nice visit,  but we had to get back home to
let the boys out of their crates.  They had
to stay home.  So,  hmm what else has gone
on around this place this passed week? We
managed to get some great pictures last
week.  Yep,  we even took some of Judy
and I in our Mr. and Mrs. Santa clothes.
They came out pretty good.  We hadn’t
taken any since we did them in 2012 our
first Christmas with Benny and Milo,  so
we figured we needed to do some new ones
with Benny and Rocky.  Oddly the first
picture in both indoors and outdoors was
the best of all that we took.  I always take
many photos just in case I get a better
shot.  In this case,  I didn’t need all of
the others LOL.  Judy took a number of
photos of me using the snow blower on
our driveway and then also a few of me
and the boys out in the field with me in
my Santa suit.  I later took the boys out
for a walk further out in the field and
took a few pictures of them.  It seems
that Rocky loves the snow as much as
Benny 🙂  We were hoping he would.
There is still a lot of snow outside,  but
it’s quickly melting away.  There should
be some more snow to come in a week
or so.  We’ve had a white Christmas
every year since we moved up here 8
years ago and I hope we have one this
year as well,  being my daughter and
granddaughter are wanting to see one.
With that El Nino who can tell?  The
weathermen are guessing and each
one has a different view.  So only God
knows.  Hopefully though the weather
turns more Christmassy for Christmas.
OK,  so what else is there to yammer
about?  Well,  Thursday we went to
Walmart to do some shopping and got
our Christmas shopping done as well
as our grocery shopping hehehe.  So,
we are done.  We will have to go back
for the basic foods such as eggs and
milk etc,  but for the most part we
are good for at least a week.  Benny
and Rocky are doing well.  Right now
Rocky is busy playing with the toys
that go squeak and he’s driving me
crazy LOL.  That boy has hauled so
many dogs toys in here that you can’t
take a step without stepping on one 🙂
Judy and I will pick them up and put
them away and he will be right behind
us grabbing them to take back into
the PC room hehehe.  At the moment
I count 24 squeaky dog toys in the floor.
Rocky was watching me count hehehe.
At least it’s an even number HaHaHa.
Like that matters to him, or me.  LOL
right now he’s busy trying to get Benny
to chase him,  but Benny just stands
and waits for him to come back so he
came jump him hehehe.  Talk about
distractions 😉  Oh yea,  when we were
leaving from Judy’s daughters house
to come home,  we took some pictures
of the snowman and snow dog that
our granddaughter Rylee built LOL.
Both Judy and I took pictures with
both of our cameras hoping to get a
good picture.  It was slippery as all
get out and we had to watch our step.
I think we got a few good shots.  I
took one of Judy standing in front
of the snowman and snow dog LOL.
I just got a Facebook message from
my daughter with her asking me if
we can make snow ice cream when
she comes up hehehe.  We shall see.
The weather is out of our control,  but
I’m banking on snow for Christmas.
In any case I’m sure it will be a great
Christmas.  Jamye and Sami will meet
their extended family up here.  They
are anxious to meet them as well 🙂
I’ll also get a chance to meet Jamye’s
boyfriend Brian and his son P.J.  It’s,
going be a wonderful time.  OK so
what else is going on up this ways?
OH yea,  my sister is in need of your
prayers.  Her cancer has returned
and they are talking this time about
surgery.  She went through all of the
radiation treatments years back,  so
please keep her in your prayers.  If
you know her phone number,  do not
call her PLEASE.  She doesn’t need
to be bothered right now.  She is a
strong woman and she has her mom
and me as well as her kids if she needs
to talk.  I love you Peggy.  Hang in
there.  Lord God is always in control.
Judy and I are holding our on as we
watch each day go by.  We always
know that God’s hands are holding
us,  protecting us from evils of life.
Yet,  we know that with life comes
many trials that we must endure,
for we are human.  Each trial will
make us stronger if we do not give
up. I have learned many things as my
life has met quite a few bumpy roads
that took me for a ride,  but I am
much stronger that I have endured.
Let Jesus walk with you down your
daily path of winding roads.  He will
carry you when you are found too
weak to walk.  Left in His Hands you
cannot go wrong.  So,  I reckon it’s
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 found a decent title
just a few lines back and so the chore
begins to try and write something that
makes sense using it LOL.  Here goes.

Bumpy Roads

Traveled journeys
far and wide,
bumpy roads
we’ll often ride.
Times so rocky
might just be
bumpy roads
to help you see.
Listless travels
that we find
might just help
to change our mind.
Bumpy roads
of worried faces
might lead to
some better places.
Yet some moments
might display
bumpy roads
the weirdest way.
Scenes remembered
heavy loads
might be God sent
bumpy roads.

OK,  so there ya go.  I was going to write
a Christmas poem,  but then I found this
other title (Bumpy Roads) and figured that
I would save the other title for next weeks
Christmas poems hehehe.  I hope you liked
the poem and understood it.  Also I hope
that you enjoyed my rambling hehehehehe.
If not,  then I’m so sorry hehehe,  NOT 🙂
No,  I’m quite sure that I will not please all
of you all of the time.  Everybody doesn’t
always agree on everything or anything.
Yep,  we all have our differences and I am
thankful for that.  Could you imagine this
world if everybody was exactly the same?
We would bore each other to death hehehe.
For that matter,  how would we function if
we’re all police,  doctor,  lawyer,  teacher,
etc?  You see my point or at least I hope
a few of you do LOL.  Who would you be
teaching if everybody is a teacher and
the same for everything else.  So thank
God that we each are different,  for Even
identical twins have their own pathways
and personalities .  LOL I should know,
I’m married to one hehehe.  So I hope
I’ve either amused you or taught you
something.  Now I believe it’s time for
me to tell you what I tell you almost
every week and that is I wrote some
more poems and haiku.   Yeppers 10
more poems with 7 of them this time
being Christmas poems.  Also I once
again wrote 22 haiku for all of the
haiku lovers out there.  I hope you can
find 1 or 2 of either or both that you
like.  Now I believe it’s time for me to
be searching for that not so great at
hiding off switch,  but not before I
wish you a truly blessings filled week
being the weekend is pretty much over
with.  At least it is up this way LOL.
Now,  where is that confounded off
switch hiding this time?  Well,  I’ll be.
it looks like he actually put in some
effort in his hiding place this week :),
but I still can see ya dude.  Hiding
underneath my K2 meter that I’ve got
sitting next to me on the printer LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S.  Happy birthday Peggy (sis).  I love you.

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

Season’s Snow

The winds of winter
churn day to day
as the season’s snow
displays in its way.
Blowing profusely
as snowflakes of time
the season is found
with many a rhyme.
Ones singing sweetly
songs they remember
of the season’s snow
that’s found in December.
Epic are the scenes
so fluorescent white
within the seasonal
each day and night.
For even the darkness
is found with a glow
reflecting the moonlight
down on the snow.
The first of the season
is magic to see
as it shows blessings
the greatest degree.
Lights all a twinkling
seen to and fro
are found in the moment
of this season’s snow.

Moments Remembered

Decembers doorways
are coming in frame
as this great season
entails Jesus name.
Searching through snowflakes
to find what that’s true
Decembers doorways
are coming in view.
Moments remembered
from times long ago
become as the pathways
to help us to grow.
Lessons repeated
that we overlook,
moments remembered
so timeless mistook.
Not seeing blessings
as they come in frame,
many just trudge on
each day as the same.
Moments remembered
are times we should see
truth within Christmas
and what it should be.
Let your heart blossom
as roses of love
singing of Christmas
from Lord God above.

Lost In Description

Losing your pathway
to darkness of life
lost in description
will fill you with strife.
Let not the sadness
that time gives to you
become the only
way that you view.
For there is goodness
somewhere in a way
lost in description
that you view each day.
Often it’s hidden
beneath moments pain
needing a moment
for you to attain.
Lost in description
you might misconstrue
all of the blessings
that God’s given you.

Some Just Forget

Christmas holds patterns
that many perceive
and some just forget
how they’re to believe.
Some move along
too quickly through time
and stop believing
in blessings to find.
Many sought Santa
on throughout the night
Christmas Eve surely
until morning light.
Some just forget
what the magic entails
giving is better
than living in shells.
Christmas is blessings
and not just a day,
but some just forget
that wonderful way.
Let Christmas joyful
to live within you
and find all the magic
that there is to view.
Don’t just forget
what Christmas can be.
Let Jesus Christ to
help you to see.
Don’t become someone
with hateful regret
and then be known for
as some just forget.

Hearts Change

As many change
and hearts are destroyed
we are then needing
Lord Jesus deployed.
Many lose Christmas
as time goes away
then as hearts change
their love is to pay.
Christmas can be
a reviver so true
while making hearts change
much better to view.
So lose your anger
and find peace within
and see hearts change
forgiven from sin.
Don’t let tomorrow
to become destroyed.
See how hearts change
with Jesus employed.
Christmas then found
as hearts beating true
the essence of love
for me and for you.
Let your decisions
to be better made
displaying as hearts change
with every sin paid.

Simply Believing

Winds of a doorway
open and close
simply believing
a child does suppose.
Christmastimes scenes
come to life no deny
while simply believing
is Santa in the sky.
A young child with hopeful
and dreams to come true
turns simply believing
to things they can view.
Maybe in a dream
or a wishful desire
simply believing
burns bright as a fire.
A young Christmas heart
finds Santa Claus joy
while simply believing
in a Christmastime toy.

Various Styles

Minds of a journey
various styles
often display as
frowns and smiles.
Some with a moment
headed thereunto
various styles are
found then to view.
Minutes tick onwards
as time moves along
while various styles
are dusk unto dawn.
Many seek Heaven
while ones look away
as various styles
are found day to day.
God gives us chances
for so many miles
to help the confusion
of various styles.

A Star Lit Sky

A porthole is seen
in the dark of the night
a sleigh with reindeer
and one with a light.
Santa Claus flying
so high Christmas Eve
in a star lit sky
that I do perceive.
Sleigh bells a jingling
just like a song
in a star lit sky
to soon then be gone.
The moon up above
I cannot deny
is helping Santa
in a star lit sky.
Yet with the twinkle
of Rudolf’s nose
helps Santa’s sleigh
when surely it snows.
For then with snowflakes
and no stars to see
Rudolf guides Santa
across the blue sea.
But when it’s clear then
Santa will fly
with all the help from
a star lit sky.

A Dream Of White

A Christmas dream
I do delight
found so sweet
a dream of white.
A dream of snowflakes
falling free
a dream of white
for me to see.
Christmas music
ones sing along
a dream of white
from dusk to dawn.
The seasons flurries
day and night
are found within
a dream of white.
Lights seen twinkling
red,  blue and green
a dream of white
the best I’ve seen.
The solemn beauty
Christmas shows
a dream of white
that God bestows.
Maybe only
a dream of white,
but it’s beauty
I do delight.

The Minutes Pass

With the daylight
passing through
time bestows
a wondrous hue.
The minutes pass
with time to spare
as ones find
some time for prayer.
A moment’s gathered
such to see,
the minutes pass
you must agree.
For so often
wasting away
the minutes pass
to another day.
comes on cue,
the minutes pass
with thereunto.
Allowing time to
fly on by,
the minutes pass
and then you die.
So don’t wait to
do what’s right,
the minutes pass
now seek the light.
Let God’s glory
live and breathe,
the minutes pass
how you believe.
Don’t let minutes
just to be
the minutes pass
to history.

for Dec 5,  2015

With but a worry
the chance for failure exist,
for you’ll create it.

Perceived discretion
can look just like prejudice,
but be just caution.

Without emotions
we would all just be empty
with no expressions.

A true field of dreams
lives within a hearts desire,
if it’s meant to be.

Varieties seen
expose different doorways
of which to choose from.

Beyond what we see
there’s another place to find
that waits to be found.

So many people
lose their faith in Lord Jesus,
when told they must change.

Ignorance of truth
does not give right for the wrong,
for we need to learn.

Displayed as flavors
a season might seem to be
colors of taste buds.

Sudden storm showers
will leave their footprints in time
as flooding waters.

Beside a second
might sit a portion of time
that we’ve forgotten.

Blessings uncounted
might soon be overflowing
without our knowledge.

A distant flower
that your eyes have laid upon,
might just be a weed.

Patterns that we’ve made
are sure to change as we grow,
making new patterns.

Perfection is fool,
for nobody is perfect,
except Jesus Christ.

Left over choices
could become our dynamite
that we should forget.

Your own reflection
will look inside of your heart
for you know it’s there.

Heartbeats entwined
can become as one heartbeat
through the love of God.

A silent venture
will maybe end in trouble,
with none to rescue.

In the starry skies
holds a place to imagine
and fill up your dreams.

Hillsides of venture
might hold quite a few landslides,
so take heed your stride.

Despair of what’s gone
needs be filled with thankfulness
for what all you have.
