God Gives


Hello my friends

So this is summer huh?? Not quite the summers I remember
from my Texas life hehehe. Except for the ongoing raining
and all, it’s been rather comfortable. Still, I miss my state
of birth. I guess I will always be a Texan LOL, YEE HAW!
Yeppers the weather has been great temperature wise, but
it seems to have rained just about every day or every other
day hehehe. Nothing against rain, in moderation hehehehe.
I haven’t been fishing again yet, but I did purchase a cheap
fishing pole and some lures. Brian gave me some floaters and
some hooks. Also I mentioned I was going to practice casting
out in our front field and he gave me a led weight to use for
that so I don’t tear up my lures :). He said he will be ready
to go fishing in a couple of weeks. He has things to do before
that. That’s great, because it gives me time to get used to
this fishing pole and reel. The reel is like one I used to own
back 3 decades ago before I quit fishing, so I shouldn’t have
too much trouble with it, hopefully. I got a late start on this
journal because I was playing around with my FarmTown
farm hehehe. I had crops to harvest that were on the verge
of going to waste LOL. I know hehehe, It’s silly, but it’s
something to keep me from going totally bonkers up here
where I am lost. I thank God for sending me a friend like
Brian. He’s young enough to be my son hehehe, but he’s
a good friend. My daughter Jamye is the same age as him
by a few months. In any sense. Brian and me have fun
hanging out together. So, I reckon it’s about time to be
heading off to another topic. Well, within the realm of
Judy’s business, they fired an employee for other reasons,
but he was also a suspect for the robbery a week or so ago.
Also, did you hear about the murders in Amity Maine last
Wednesday. Two men and a boy were stabbed to death.
It’s sad that things like this happen. Yet they happen all
over the world. Let us give them and their families our
prayers. God will make it right. He deals with issues in
a light that none of us could understand, but He does
have control. With a death there is life, for Heaven is
an unending lifetime of joy. OK so it’s onto maybe a lil
lighter side hehehe. My Evaporative Air Cooler came
Friday. It has an ionizer on it as well as can be used as
just a fan. It has a place for water as well as ice to help
it to cool when of course/if the weather gets to where
it is too hot for me to handle hehe. If it gets above 80F,
it’s pushing it for me LOL. I am very hot natured and
I dehydrate real easy due to my ongoing diarrhea which
keeps my potassium level rock bottom most times hehe.
So, an added fan will help out immensely even if it’s not
used as its main purpose as an evaporative air cooler.
It’s 69F degrees right now. Rather nice I must say 🙂
It’s supposed to get up to 73F degrees, but we shall see.
I may have to practice my casting in the rain LOL being
it doesn’t look like it will stop maybe until the end of the
week hehehe. I bet a few of you would like me to send
ya some of this rain huh. Would if I could. Yes Jimmy,
I am working on your snow wish hehehehe HoHoHo.
Maybe this coming winter you’ll get that snow you’ve
been asking me to send :). Hehehe if I could FedEx
it to ya, I would hehehe, but of course it would melt
long before it got to you. Maine to Oregon is a long
haul dude. Maybe the snow miser will let your part of
the state get some snow this coming winter. LOL I’ll
try and have a little talk with him hehehe. OK, it’s
on to yet another topic. The field in front of our house
is finally getting some grass on it where our landlord
plowed and planted it. Yet I think the birds ate most
of the grass seeds hehehe being the grass looks a tad
sporadic 🙂 It might even out as time moves on, I hope.
You know, as time moves on, I am tending to get
more at peace with my living up here, even with my
still missing Texas wholeheartedly. God gives me ways
of dealing with each moment. My love for photography
and poetry gives me ways of enjoyment and finding
the things that a moment might of missed. Through
a photograph I see things that my eyes did not see as
well as my remembering through poetry. As I write,
I reevaluate what I saw, heard, tasted and smelled.
There’s a lot that I did not see at the time. I hope that
my words of ramble or poetry and haiku find a way
to enlighten your days. With that said I guess it’s time
for me to be heading off to that place of recollection
through all that I have written here and see if I can
find a good word or phrase that will work well for
the title for today’s brand new poem. So, it’s away
I go to that place I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I found a good title 🙂 Now let’s see what I can
do with it. Hopefully something will make sense hehe.

God Gives

Time is found
with a view
seen by me
and seen by you.
God gives us
a way to find
times ahead
with peace of mind.
Times of torment
days ahead
seek for God
not Hell instead.
Mornings glory
brings to see
times to put
in history.
God gives you
and me sign
maybe seen
another time.
In our minutes
we might view
not what’s good for
me and you.
God gives blessings
through His Son
with forgiveness
for what’s done.

Hehehe well I hope that made some sense to ya. You might
have to reread it a time or so 🙂 No matter, I’m sure many
of my words will not be understood from time to time. Hey,
I can’t translate this into all of the languages of all the people
on my email list LOL. I tried converting it into Spanish, but
our English words tend to get lost in the meanings being that
many of our words used in a different context spelled exactly
the same will mean something totally different. I think I’ve
been over this before hehe, So resume doing you RESUME.
I guess it’s time for me to be looking for that old off switch,
but before I do that, I need to tell you what I tell you every
week and that is, I wrote some more poetry and haikus 🙂
Yeppers 10 more poems with one of them being yet another
Christmas poem and 22 haikus. I hope you enjoy at least
some of them. With that said, have a most wonderful week
and remember, Jesus loves you and we do too. Now to find
that confounded off switch hehehe. Found it this time hiding
in the box that the Evaporative Fan came in, just a chilling.
See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haikus
10 and 22 hehehe 🙂

Minus Plusses

Minus adds up
to what’s left
finding lessons
from a breath.
In the moments
minus brings
there are segments
found as dreams.
Often pages
found and named
might not show
the clear attained.
Minus surely
has a hue
that’s with minutes
learned on cue.
Whether today
or times tomorrow
that you learn
from good or sorrow,
all the minutes
will be there
minus plusses
answered prayer.
Maybe not as
you would do,
but Lord God
knows best for you.

Only A Phrase

Coining a phrase
found in your cup
might not display
what all you made up.
So often wordings
that many hear
are misconceptions
that are not heard clear.
People might hear
but only a phrase
that’s of misgivings
from their own past days.
Try and say clearly
what you bestow
making your actions then
clearly to show.
Coining a phrase
no other has heard,
might lead to many
misjudging your word.

Seasons Journeys

In seasons standing
painted in green
are many flavors
that I have seen.
Painted with colors
here to afar
even as night comes
with little stars.
Seasonal pictures
come into view
painted with blessings
wonderful hue.
Summers transposing
soon into fall
with all the colors
that I do recall.
In seasons journeys
I’ll surely find
winter to come in
with thens Christmastime.
Christmastimes season
will surely show
as it awakens
fluffy white snow.
Timeless the settings
will sort of seem
segments of journeys
found in a dream.
Yet after Christmastime
winter will come
with the remainder
that time does succumb.
Christmas will still be
seen days and nights
as many people
will keep up their lights.
Blinking and twinkling
with each manger scene
maybe until then
the beginning of spring.

Use Common Sense

In weirdest wonders
ones will compose
ways of deception
fear head to toes.
Often ones fear
will surely be found
as them just crying
with no one around.
In weird portrayals
many might run
fearing disasters
under the gun.
Sometimes our fear
will only be there
found in a moment
lesser of prayer.
Yet often fear points
are surely true
and then decisions
are needed by you.
Use common sense
when faced with a time
and decide stay
or spin on a dime.

Things We Think Needful

Yearning for something
might misconstrue
what that is really
goodness for you.
Often our wannas
leave us with doubt
wondering how
we’ll ever get out.
While simply yearning
does not control,
yet when in action
it carries its toll.
If you are yearning
for something else
make sure it won’t just
lie on your shelf.
Sometimes our wannas
think we’re in need
when in fact surely
they’re just a deed.
Things we think needful
to get us on by
might just be moments
we’re not needing try.

The Beginning Of Day

The grasses so green
in the fields far away
lay there with magic
that seems to display.
Found in the grasses
are scenes far and wide
within the fields
I now coincide.
Laying down here
in the grasses so green
I look around
at this wonderful scene.
The feel the Earth
that I am upon
lingering sweetly
from dusk unto dawn.
As I laid down
at nighttimes arrival
I sensed the creatures
in nighttimes survival.
Having no fear
as I laid here so quiet
I just awaited
the morning from night.
I saw the billows
of clouds overhead
as I just laid here
so seemingly dead.
Yet just in silence
I watched and I heard
the mornings green grass
and very first bird.
I then rose up
and went on my way
and went inside
at the beginning of day.

An Impact

Rains will come
and bring their drink
and give ones
a way to think.
Rains will pour
onto our times
leaving echoes
found designs.
Surely the rains
of days gone by
will decide
from live or die.
Rains will flourish
yet maybe not
within a segment
less or a lot.
It’s in the changing
chances to see
found deep within
our own history.
We’ve made an impact
on our mother Earth
which makes decisions
from living to birth.

A Much Better Book

I hear the breeze
that rattles and hums
shaking our pictures
as beating of drums.
Blowing on through
our house I hear
that simple breeze
that I so endear.
I feel its blessings
blowing in stride
as it continues
blowing inside.
I’ve got our windows
opened to see
the greatest morning
in my history.
Timeless discussion
is what that’s heard
found in the breeze
of word after word.
I hear its volume
that times mistook
as I read clearly
a much better book.

Voices Scented

The rain’s begun
and left a trail
through my window
setting sail.
I felt raindrops
over here
as it’s raining
so sincere.
Now it’s faded
to some drops
as I watch
until it stops.
Rains continue
yet so small
as their droplets
seem to fall.
Drop by drop
the rains are found
on the grasses
Earthly ground.
Now a cool breeze
blows on in
as the rains
go time agin.
Scenes are painted
in my view
as the rains
come so anew.
Its discussions
are then said
when a drop
lands on my head.
Words are gathered
as it rains
that give chances
times attained.
Voices scented
by the day
as the rains
all go away.

Your Harbor

Harboring anger
only will be
all that is found
in your history.
Letting your anger
live within you
might just become
what others accrue.
Others are watching
often concealed
maybe in patches
found in left field.
Many are seeing
how you react
to simple moments
of fiction or fact.
Don’t let your harbor
just be a place
found with anger
times of disgrace.
Let yourself grow
from all that is done
as you let anger
to fade into none.

for June 26, 2010

On a mid morning
the sands of time bring goodness
flavored with raindrops.

Answers come quickly,
but we often don’t see them
due to our self will.

Doors open and close
as time continues onwards
with choices to make.

New days come quickly,
yet they may seem slow moving,
because of our view.

Some see only weeds
as they look out to a field
of Dandelions.

Deep in a crevice
holds the memories of time
that many forsake.

Lifestyles are gathered
as leaves that blow here to there
and create beauty.

Half-witted people
thinking only of themselves
will cause destruction.

Turning a corner
doesn’t always lead to good.
Some lead to dead ends.

The sun is shining
making its way through the clouds
to dry up the rain.

Rational judgment
finds a path through yesterday
from many mistakes.

Inwards a viewpoint
might seem as outwards described
and wrongly perceived.

Nows is a blessing
sometimes hidden from our view
due to some problems.

Maniacal scenes
are created from stupidity
that’s not in control.

Every flower
has a beginning to see
that comes from a bud.

Talking to yourself
guarantees a conversation,
yet not always good.

Fractions of summer
make their way as tomorrows
with blossoms that bloom.

When time seems destroyed
look back on the journey through
and find the lessons.

Trails are with footsteps
either before or after
leading to and from.

Wandering seconds
allow minutes to concur
as journey’s laid out.

Handfuls of hopeful
give chances for tomorrows
that good can be done.

Many misread thoughts
when their perception’s unclear,
because of their past.
