Still Watching


Hello my friends

It’s been a nice start to March. The weather
hasn’t been too bad. We’ve had a few days of
subzero temperatures, but not too many. The
weather seems to be warming up a bit. Right
now it’s 33 F degrees at 3:44 PM. Tonight’s
low is supposed to be 13 F and by the looks of
my weather program, we might be in the mid
to lower 40’s for most of the weeks aside from
the nights of course which will be a tad colder.
It looks like we might get some snow Monday,
but not much. We’ve still got a bit, but most
has turned into a white sheet of ice. This has
been one of the strangest winters we have had
since we moved up here December of 2007 🙂
Every other year we would be having massive
snows and blizzards at this time of year with
much of the same through February which we
were spared this year. I hope this isn’t a sign
of horrendous winters to come, like the calm
before the storm. I don’t mind the snow, but
it’s the ice that I have trouble dealing with if
you know what I mean. I tend to slip and slide
on the ice. Yes I have cleats, but sometimes
I forget to put them on LOL. They’re the type
that you strap to the bottom of your shoes 🙂
Anyways, being equipped with a snow blower
and our landlord plowing our driveway, we
can handle the snow. A truck came the other
day and put dirt on our driveway to help melt
the ice. So, that’s about all on that subject.
Benny and Rocky are doing fine. They are
in the bedroom with Judy right now. Judy’s
gone and laid back down. The boys are in
there lying with her. Judy had to take some
Benadryl and it started making her drowsy.
I took some a bit ago, but they don’t make
me drowsy. They just mess with my eyes of
which at the moment I am having trouble a
little bit, but I can type pretty well without
having to see the keys and being that most of
the letters are worn off of my keyboard that’s
a good thing. But I still have to be able to
see the monitor to see if I made a mistake
and that is presenting a problem. Oh well,
I’ll write as much as I can and then maybe in
a bit stop for a while to allow my eyesight to
become less blurry hehehe. So until it gets
too hard to see, I’ll keep on keepen on LOL.
It’s 35 F degrees now at 4:42 PM. It should
start to cooling down now. So, what else is
going on in this place? Well, not much of
anything. Judy has been doing final editing
on her new book and she has sent the final
copy to the editors to be corrected and then
sent to print. The cover of the book looks
awesome. I can’t wait to see it in its final
form. We’re hoping it gets made into a
movie. It’s being sent to Hollywood when
they’re done printing. We’re trying not to
get our hopes up being we know that tons
of manuscripts are sent to them and many
are turned down. Anyways, we’re praying.
Her book will be rated R being there are
a few delicate scenes, but the storyline is
great. Anyways, when the book is finally
ready for purchasing, I’ll tell you and I’ll
put a link to buy it at the end of the journal
just as I have for her other 2 books. OK,
so what else is there? Well, I can hear
some snoring coming from the bedroom 🙂
I just went to get me a soda water and
both of the boys are lying on the bed with
Judy hehehe. They both watched me as
I went through to the kitchen and then
as I walked back in here they didn’t even
budge from their spots on the bed hehehe.
Rocky of course is sleeping in my spot
with his head on my pillow, but Benny is
at the foot of the bed where he is most of
the time when we allow them on the bed.
Of course they don’t sleep with us when
we’re trying to actually sleep. They have
their own beds in the floor beside our bed.
We don’t mind them coming up with us if
we’re just going to watch TV. Yep, this
house has gone to the dogs LOL. I’ve
taken quite a few pictures this week and
I’m sure many of them will end up in my
stationery hehehe. Judy and I had to go
to town a couple of times this passed week
and I took loads of pictures of the changes
in the scenery. It seems that spring is on
its way, but it still has a few obstacles to
overcome such as the bouncing around
from above freezing to below. It’s gotten
a bit colder in the last few minutes. Now
it’s back to 33 F and still going down 🙂
So the flowers won’t begin blooming for
a while I reckon. The grass may give a
shot at growing in a week or so if the
weather’s permitting. It seems that the
Pearce’s Place is still kicking with life.
Right now I’m munching on Cheeto’s
or Cheese Puffs if you will hehehehehe.
The cheap version of Cheeto’s. They
taste just as good to me 🙂 It looks like
God is still watching over us. Thank
Jesus for forgiveness, for it is through
Him that we can get to Heaven. Not
one of us is without sin and so we are in
need of the blood of Christ to cleanse
our path to Heaven. Though here in
the path of humanity, we must still
answer to our many sins and mistakes.
So, have faith in God and all will be
well in the end. Yet what we do at
this moment can determine how much
Hell we must journey through, so try
to make the best choices you can, for
you will have to answer to them one
way or another. Now I believe it’s
time for me to be taking my little trip
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 like Underdog 🙂 to that
place of my recollection that I always
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE
and see what I can find. Hmmm it
seems I may have stumbled upon a
decent title just a little ways back.
Now let’s see what I can do with it.
Here goes……………nothing maybe 🙂

Still Watching

When trouble finds you
and you are alone
God is still watching
from His mighty throne.
Time might seem burdening
as you kneel and pray,
but God is still watching
to help you each day.
Often the minutes seen
might seem too rough,
but God is still watching
to just give enough.
Even when the darkness
seems with much fear
God is still watching
with true love sincere.
So when you are frightened
and feel you will fall
remember God’s still watching
over us one and all.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling and maybe
even the poem. Hopefully you understood it.
I will wonder time to time whether or not any
of what I say is understood hehehe. It don’t
matter I reckon, being I’m also writing to
myself hehehe. So it looks like darkness is
upon us as the sun has distanced itself from
us to brighten up another part of the world.
Yep, it’s getting colder. Now it’s 27 F and
still dropping hehehe. Ok, I need to see if
there is anything that I have forgotten to tell
you. OH yea, Judy’s mom is not doing well.
She’s been sent to the nursing home for a
bit, but will not be able to stay long because
her insurance will only cover a few weeks,
but hopefully if it gets too bad, they will
reevaluate. Judy’s brother Ricky is doing
well. He’s still in the nursing home and
might remain there unless things change.
No matter what, God always has the
reins, so it will all work out in the end.
Ok so I guess I need to tell you what I
tell you almost every week and that is
I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yep, I wrote 10 more poems, but this
time I kind of went overboard and wrote
5 extra poems. 2 of the 15 poems are
sort of Christmassy. I also once again
wrote 22 haiku for all the haiku lovers
out there. I hope you can find 1 or 2 of
either or both that you like. So now it’s
time for me to begin searching for that
old ornery off switch, but not before I
wish you a wonderful weekend or what
that’s left of it and a truly blessings filled
week. Remember, Jesus loves you and
we do too. Now to find that off switch.
Hmmm, searching, hmmmm, I think
I spy with my one good eye something
moving underneath my Vision Care bill
and lo and behold there you are. LOL.
If you could just manage to stay still
for more than a second, it might not
be so easy to find ya. Yes I’ll pay the
bill tonight. LOL back off. Oh yea,
Got ya, see ya zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

P.S. One of the poems is to my Judy 🙂
titled (In The Night)

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10+5 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Faraway Friends

Words that are spoken
from faraway friends
are as the magic that
timeless transcends.
Sought as a moments time
words that are spoken
friendship is gained
as a wonderful token.
They might be in Ghana
or some other place,
but faraway friends
are there to embrace.
Scented as echoes
from times that are found,
our faraway friends
will often astound.
The minutes tick onwards
as heartbeats are gained
while faraway friends
are surely attained.

In The Night

Thoughts of love
transcend each day
as night comes close
with its array.
Then the thoughts
come into sight
of this one
with love so right.
Love is found
as two are seen
in the night
within a dream.
Then the hours
passing through
in the night
are found with two.
Time has come
and time has gone
as the time
moves on and on.
You and I
with love so right
found each day
and in the night.

To Judy Ann Pearce
From William Earl Pearce II

A Minutes Gain

Footsteps of thresholds
will often be found
as many shadows
we see all around.
Time becomes patterns
that we focus on
as a minutes gain
that just might be wrong.
Procuring lessons
that should not be seen
might in time turn to
a horrific dream.
A minutes gain
from a liars detail
will surely in the end
find you within Hell.
Time can turn friendless
if all you attain
is greed of another
that’s in a minutes gain.
For as the pages
of life are turned true
a minutes gain will
show what that’s you.
Then ones will notice
those ways of your life
and a minutes gain
will cut like a knife.
Leaving you empty
for all you’ve procured,
for a minutes gain
was Hell found allured.

Now And Agin

Life has many scenes
as footsteps are made
with now and agin
and how they’re inlaid.
People with differences
found here and there
as now and agin
with some unaware.
Many will continue
their on troubled course
with now and agin
their hard driven force.
With some situations
we might overlook
some now and agin
that we have mistook,
Now and agin
our lives might fall prey
to the same as some others
on some other day.

Budding Like A Rose

A friend that is true
might not seem clear,
for what you see
you think insincere.
So many true friends
might seem to hate
with what all they do
to protect your fate.
Budding like a rose
those friends will in time
display their heartbeats
as they unwind.
Yet for a moments time
you might not see
the truth that is there
that they did for free.
True friends will often
seem to oppose,
but you’ll find in time
they’re budding like a rose.

Death finds us all
as time comes to be
and then every journey
is surely set free.
Ascending to Heaven
or Hell down below,
our actions on Earth
will guide where we go.
Some have the thought
of whom that they’ll find
when found in Heaven
that wonderful time.
Yet there might be
ones there you thought not
found in ascension
you wrongfully thought.
Because what’s inside us
you might not agree,
but God is The Father
which can clearly see.
He sees our true hearts
that others are blind,
for all our religions
are human defined.
Found as the spirit
Lord God looks inside
and sees who we are
and what that’s applied.
He gives forgiveness
that we are unable,
for He does not put on
a religious type label.
He is our Father
with Glory Divine
that gives our ascension
or He shall decline.

Airship Of Time

Flying through the sky
as an airship of time
many look upwards
at a cloudy design.
Then with the passing
of clouds overhead
an airship of time
shows blue sky instead.
Often it’s textured
with planes flying by
as an airship of time
so high in the sky.
Then at times birds
will be seen to say
there’s an airship of time
that’s going our way.
Yet when night comes
with stars until dawn
an airship of time
will still move along.
Paving the sky
with things we can see
an airship of time
of our history.

Simply Dreaming

Wishing wanting
timeless things
Christmas moments
in my dreams.
Snowflakes falling
day by day,
I find Christmas
in a way.
Minutes ticking
time goes on,
simply dreaming
dusk till dawn.
Passed days Christmas
things unfurl
as I think of
my little girl.
The years have passed
and now I know,
I missed times
to watch her grow.
Yet last Christmas
I saw true
my little girl
and granddaughter too.
My dream came real
that timeless day
filled with blessings
wondrous way.
But now that day
is found with me
simply dreaming
things to see.

Like A Star

As a twinkle
angels are
sent from Heaven
like a star.
Soaring Earthward
like a beam
to be angels
sometimes seen.
They might be a
friend near you
like a star
to help you through.
Yet some angels
we can’t see,
but they’re there
for you and me.
Angels watching
near and far
sent from Heaven
like a star.

The Chill Of Morning

The windows are frosted
as morning’s in view
while dawns a breaking
to start off anew.
The chill of morning
might sparkle and shine
with many icicles
found oh so fine.
The cold wind a blowing
might brew up some snow
to display so often
as wintertime’s show.
The trees might all glimmer
with sparkles of ice
seen maybe one day
then maybe twice.
The chill of morning
is greatest to see
when seen from inside
what God’s given free.

Between The Lines

Words of a writer
that often are heard
find places time to time
a little absurd.
Sometimes the reader
will misunderstand
what all that’s written
and find it offhand.
Yet between the lines
some wording might tell
what that the reader
does not see so well.
Because of a moment
that the reader is at
the words that are written
might fall a bit flat.
For between the lines
the writer might give
lessons for a person
and how they should live.
Yet if you’re there then
the words might be gray,
for you are not there then
that moment that day.
So read a bit later
when moods have been changed
and between the lines
might fall in your range.
As you are reading it
seek for the times
that you were unable
to read between the lines.
Life has a way of
helping us to see
while each day is filled with
a moments degree.
Between the lines sections
that might not be clear
will one day be helpful
in your future year.

Growing Older

Minutes ticking
time is counted
growing older
is surmounted.
Life in batches
crashing through
growing older
gives a view.
that we see
become parts of
you and me.
Many burdens
might be found
growing older
sight and sound.
Eyes get weaker
ears do too
growing older
me and you.
I find journeys
later seen
growing older
now a dream.
All those lessons
that I learned
growing older
has discerned.
Now I find I’m
always here
growing older
every year.
Minutes ticking
adding on
growing older
dusk till dawn.

Somewhere In A Dream

Love found as rainbows
finds ways to appear
somewhere in a dream,
a wish for a year.
Many might be storm like
that rainbows are found
somewhere in a dream
with its sight and its sound.
Somewhere in a dream
you might find a way
to bring back a loved one
to your future day,
but a dream is just a dream
that’s often mistakes
found in reality
when the dreamer awakes.
Hopeful of a moment
can often be seen
just but a nightmare
somewhere in a dream.

A Frozen Picture

Mornings glory
displays true
a frozen picture
there to view.
Trees all frosted
shining bright
in the mornings
bright sunlight.
A frozen picture
there to see
painted for my
eyes to see.
I photograph
that wonderful scene
that which looks
just like a dream.
Glistening beauty
morning finds
a frozen picture
that unwinds.
Painted magic
ice and snow
becomes pictures
that I show.
Some photographs
of mornings site
a frozen picture
in daylight.

December Thinking

As Christmas is passed
and days are a dream
December thinking
is a magical scene.
A recurring moment
that comes to be
often with snowflakes
falling so free.
December thinking
is what I will do
dreaming of minutes
I wish then to view.
Santa Claus moments
found within flight
December thinking
of Christmas Eve night.
Dreaming of presents
found Christmas morn
discerned as the moment
that Jesus was born.

for Mar 4, 2016

Today is a path
created by our thinking,
then with our actions.

Simple little times
can become the greatest found
when you’re feeling sad.

Disheartened hearts
that lost their momentum
can find it again.

Last can become first
when the direction is changed
leaving you in front.

A flower that blooms
displays it’s true inner self
with sunshine and rain.

Many yesterdays
might come back as reflections
that show who you were.

Displaying anger
can misrepresent your view
if not worded right.

Hatred of others
can bounce right back in your face
as you learn the truth.

Believing liars
will lead you down bumpy roads
as they are exposed.

Shelter from a storm
might be the least likely thing
you never thought of.

Often a tree limb
will sway in the morning breeze
and not lose a leaf.

Left without passion
true love will never exist
as loneliness breathes.

Basking in the sun
a flower becomes beauty
that brings ones a smile.

Sleep deprived people
find it hard to think clearly
and dream wide awake.

Holding onto things
will often become problems
that drown you later.

Wisdom of an owl
is only an imagery
due to his large eyes.

Beyond a forest
holds imaginary things
that many dream of.

A tree that falls down
leaves an echo of itself
that some never hear.

Distant birds flying
might have a purpose in mind
or they’re just playing.

Life of a hermit
is a lonely perception
that might not be right.

Friends of a hater
will in time become the same
if they’re not careful.

Lost in a moment
might find you reaching for not
and grasping trouble.
