We Must Endure


Hello my friends

How’s life been treating you?  It’s not been
too bad up this ways.  It got a little warm a
few days last week,  but it’s begun cooling a
bit.  Yesterdays high was 72 the same as it is
today.  It’s supposed to be in the 70’s most
of the week with maybe a day or two near
80.  LOL last night it got down to 39 F and
I had to shut the windows.  Yep,  it looks as
though summer is already bidding its adieu.
OK maybe not where you are,  but up here
it seems to be in its last days.  The warmest
month of summer up here is July.  Right now
at 5 PM it’s 70 F degrees.  Tomorrow’s high
is supposed to be 73 F.  Anyways,  it’s partly
cloudy skies today.  Next topic.  Our new
neighbors have been busy moving in.  They
have put up a large above ground swimming
pool.  LOL I wonder if they’re aware of the
winters we have?  It’s going to be seeing a
lot of ice and snow this winter hehehe.  We
shall see.  Not our problem 🙂  So,  what else
is there to talk about?  Well,  Judy and I
took a long scenic picture taking drive down
to the coast Wednesday and we got a lot
of great pictures there and to.  We stopped
off at many different landmarks and got
out and took pictures.  The boys went with
us 🙂  I think they enjoyed it.  They both
love to ride in the car.  We would stop at
the rest areas and wherever we saw a good
place to let them out on leash so they could
run around and go potty as well as to just
take in the sights for themselves 🙂  It was
a good 10 hour drive there and back home.
5 hours one way 🙂  So both Judy and I were
pretty pooped after all of that.  I think my
legs were put to the test and they lost LOL.
I walked more than I have in a long while.
It took me a couple of days to recoup.  Judy
didn’t walk quite as much as I did.  Thank
God 🙂  I don’t believe she would of made
it back up from the pier.  It was down hill
going there,  but an up hill climb back to
the car.  So what else has gone on around
The Pearce’s Place?  Well,  to be honest
it’s been sort of quiet aside from all of the
noise coming from the neighbors as they
come and go.  Judy had a craft night last
night (Saturday) and she made a duck tape
clutch purse hehehe.  She’s still been doing
a lot of painting.  I’ve already got a 3rd of
the poetry pictures written for book 5 LOL.
Yes I write a lot.  Although if you’ve been
receiving this news letter for a while,  you
should know that by now LOL.  Aren’t we
exciting hehehe.  Nope,  just typical old
folks enjoying life as best that we’re able.
These 2 boys of ours keep us entertained.
God is still watching over us protecting us
from evils of life.  Of course there are a
few things we must endure being we are
human and troubles in life help to make
us stronger.  So thank God for the things
that make you stronger.  Of course you
might not be aware of the things,  so be
grateful for all that life has given you as
the lessons grow and you become stronger.
Now,  I believe it’s time for me to begin
my little journey back through all that I
have written here to see if I can find me 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.  Hmm.  it looks like I may have
found a decent title just a few lines back
and now after checking I see that I have
not used it as of yet,  so used it shall be.
Here goes……

We Must Endure

While in a window
of torment and pain
we must endure
the moments of rain.
Scenes might encompass
some dark clouds amiss,
but lessons are displayed
within all of this.
We must endure
all the days that arrive
and change what we can
with each day alive.
God is still watching
and waiting each day
to see us endure
as we each kneel and pray.
Time gives a portion
of a scenery tour
goodness and misery
that we must endure.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem and
maybe even understood it.  Also I hope that
you enjoyed my rambling and it entertained
you for a while hehehe.  I don’t think there’s
anything else news worthy to tell you.  It’s all
been pretty much said.  There’s not much on
TV to watch today so I reckon we’ll be doing
our thing such as writing and painting.  Me
with my writing and Judy with her painting,
but here lately she’s been doing a little writing
too.  So that’s about all there is to tell you 🙂
of course aside from what I tell you almost
every week and that is,  I wrote some more
poems and haiku.  Yeppers,  10 more poems
with 2 extras.  Nope no Christmas poetry
this week 🙂  Maybe next week.  I also wrote
22 more 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 begin my search for that hardly
elusive off switch,  but not before I wish you
a most wonderful weekend or whatever’s left
of it and a blessings filled week.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now,  where
is that ornery off switch attempting to hide
this week?  Hmm,  LOL I think I see him
behind the Bubble Fun bottles right beside
the bubble blower that I bought to entertain
the boys hehehehe.  Yep,  there ya are you
silly.  Try a little harder next time will ya.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

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

Simple Things

Life is short
as time will pass
minutes gather
way too fast.
Times we’ve seen
and looked around
show our shadows
on the ground.
For the journey
that we took
simple things
have lost their look.
The simple things
of life’s accord
might now be
the past’s reward.
Time’s we’ve hurried
passed some scenes
we might now miss
the simple things.

It Still Exists

Walls awakened
life is there
breathing essence
times aware.
It still exists
for life moves on
timeless days
another dawn.
Even the glimmers
of early designs
still in existence
a moment defines.
The walls of time
hold many faces
which still exists
as certain traces.
Time lives on
as moments mist
breathing memoirs
it still exists.

Finding Peace

Life’s a pathway
day and night
many wrong ways
many right.
Scenes discovered
might fall prey
to the minds
of yesterday.
Finding peace
is often hard
within your own
times front yard.
Yet the doorways
swinging true
giving pathways
different view.
To see some signs
of pains decrease
God gives help
for finding peace.

Behold The View

A storm becomes
the only scene
when we’re looking
for a dream.
It is our wants
that often lie
to misinterpret
times gone by.
Behold the view
the truth to see
the things in life
you’ve just set free.
We often gaze
on passed the best
while we’re seeking
east and west.
Behold the view
of now and then
and let the truth
then enter in.
Don’t let the good
to bid adieu.
Look more close
behold the view.

Life Passes By

As we breathe
we lose a breath
a certain time
of life and death.
Life passes by
as wheels will roll
time’s then seen
an alternate goal.
In our journeys
time might be
a life of wanting
new to see.
Yet the old
of which we view
is really growing
very new.
So the ventures
wheels of time
might just need
a new design.
The olden stage
of different days
might still hold
some helpful ways.
Learning lessons
from the past
can make better
shadows cast.
Time then shows
new ways to fly
things we’ve learned
as life passes by.

A Calming Day

Within a view
the tide is seen
a moment’s past
a certain dream.
Boats will float
amidst the frame
a moment’s time
to then attain.
A calming day
with little scorn
is found within
a new day born.
A scenic sight
of which to view
brings a chance
for life anew.
An ocean scene
with skies array
is such a sight
a calming day.

Walk Of Peace

On days of strife
take hold the reins
and find the peace
that’s within change.
Take a little walk
outside of your view
and find the peace
to live within you.
A walk of peace
a journey to see
a change in the days
with mind set free.
Look for answers
beyond the waves
with a walk of peace
to much better days.
Search for blessings
that you have missed
which may be a river
to turn and twist.
Look in the ripples
of your days accord,
have a walk of peace
with Jesus our Lord.

Rushing Minds

Life’s a passage
rivers flow
times we’ve counted
high and low.
In the essence
life exist
timeless portals
in the mist.
Rushing minds then
find a phrase
ticking seconds
in the days.
Flowing rivers
found within
time is essence
start to end.
In the shadows
of our times
many find their
rushing minds.

Fishing For Time

When waters flow
in your life of times
seek for the moments
of wonderful signs.
Reach out your hands
to grab a hold tight
the waters of dreams
in life’s moments light.
Fishing for time
in a stream of days
might become empty
with fish just a phase.
Let not the waters to
rush passed your look
while fishing for time
with an un baited hook.
Let all the lessons
of a moment’s design
teach you perspective
while fishing for time.

Enjoying Life

Let all the sadness
to just melt away
and leave but only
the best of today.
Time is a portal
that we look through
minutes and hours
from old to anew.
Find some peaceful
within your memories
and then enjoy them
as oceans and seas.
Remember a time
in a field of green
or some other time
of which you’ve seen.
Look for the beauty
that’s lesser of strife
and then you’ll find
you’re enjoying life.

Roads We Go Down

Our lives might seem
an endless road
with life of times
a heavy load,
but paths might be
just misunderstood
roads we go down
from bad to good.
The scenes we see
might become faint
as earthly tones
with weathered paint.
The seasons change
with wheels of life
as time rolls on
with wrong and right.
We have a choice
to smile or frown,
but time rolls on
roads we go down.

Searching Scenes

Moments blissful
certain days
life is portioned
for a gaze.
Searching scenes
of times detail
brings us to
a life set sail.
Times we recall,
sights we’ve seen
become as our
wanted dreams.
As our journals
times fulfilled
burning embers
are instilled.
Searching scenes
we value best
brings us to
a place of rest.
Found as portions
true to see
searching scenes
of history.

for July 22,  2017

Without a moment
our decisions are stagnant,
for time needs a place.

Through opened doorways
lies chances for right or wrong,
we should choose wisely.

The seams of our lives
are as threads time’s united
to bring us to one.

Beyond time and space
is a venture of the mind
that needs perspective.

Looking for flowers
might hide the most beautiful
behind what you see.

Shadows of ourselves
live as things ones remember
so take heed your life.

As a ticking clock
the hands of time continue
even when we’re gone.

The ways ones believe
creates a doorway of life
that ones don’t agree.

Harboring hanger
will cause a fuse to be lit
for an explosion.

Life in the fast lane
can burn up your fuel for life
before you know it.

Longwinded people
tend to lose themselves in words
that were not needed.

Lost in illusion
moments can become nightmares
when you’ve awoken.

The glamour of life
viewed from others perspectives
might be just a lie.

Challenging others
to what you are not sure of
proves your ignorance.

The beauty of time
is that of many chances
that we throw away.

Patience is waiting
for the right moment in time
and not just waiting.

A journey of miles
can become eternity
as life seems endless.

Looking too closely
you might miss all the beauty
seen from a distance.

Climbing a mountain
can be like a life’s journey
that wears on the mind.

Mindset of stubborn
holds a wall in place of life
that crashes in time.

Grasses of summer
grow as groundskeepers nightmares
that continue on.

Pointless is hatred
when it only makes you sick
and poisons your heart.
