The Troubles


Hello my friends

How have ya been? I’ve been same old same old.
Judy got her new camera, but I have had to do some
adjusting to it, being it’s not a high dollar camera as
our other cameras are hehe. Yet for a 100 dollars it
works fairly well. We are going to try and go again
either Wednesday or Thursday to get some pictures
using it. Last week they didn’t come out as good as
we had planned. I adjusted the settings afterwards
and the pictures seem to be better now. We’ll give
it another go this week sometime. I took a few with
my camera and as usual, those pictures came out
good so it wasn’t a wasted trip. The next time Judy
might also bring her old camera to take some pictures
along with her new camera. I wish I could afford to
buy her a new good camera, but they cost quite a lot.
Oh well, she loves the camera hehehe. It’s purple 🙂
and it does take decent pictures NOW, but ya gotta
hold it still and give it time to focus. It has an auto
focus on it. It’s a Vivitar Vivicam T328 with a 3 inch
touch screen, 3x optical zoom and 8x digital and it
has 12.1 mega pixels. Anyways, it’s onto another
topic. The weather up this way is fairly nice. Today
is a bit cloudy. It’s supposed to get sunny by noon
time, but after that hehehe back to the old cloudy
skies with rain scheduled for tomorrow and Tuesday.
Who knows what it’ll actually do? The weather has
a way of changing at the drop of a hat LOL. I’m sure
snow will be making its intro real soon. Yet for now,
it’s not too bad as far as cold weather is concerned.
Right now it’s 45F at 11:50 AM and it’s supposed to
get all the way up to 47F hehehe. Tonight it might
get down to 32F though. Nope it ain’t too bad hehe.
Onto yet another topic. Judy’s place of business
has been having a few stumbling blocks due to the
fact that when the old diner finally got reopened,
the restaurant that was started is seeming to be
losing business. They are all returning to the old
diner. I kind of figured that that would happen.
Now they need to work on a different menu at the
restaurant to get the customers to start coming in.
It’s not cool to have the same menu for both hehe.
I’m sure they will resolve the issue soon in some
manner. Life goes on. God gives us ways to deal
with the issues at hand, but many of the answers
may turn out to be something we don’t want. Yet,
answers are there. Sometimes the answers are to
simply have patience and wait. Often more than
many those are the answers being we’re not at the
right place and time for any physical movement to
be made. Life has a way of throwing us curve balls
and making us stumble. Believe it or not, those
moments of stumbling will make you stronger in
time. We learn from our mistakes hehehe or at
least a few do LOL. I know a few that seem that
they will never learn, for they keep trying the same
thing expecting different results. If you keep doing
what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve
always got. Sometimes a little change is necessary
to put you back on track. Let God be your guide
through His Son Jesus Christ. You might stumble
time to time, but He will be there to pick you up
and dust you off. He knows we must stumble to
learn the correct paths and so He lets us do what
we will. The point is, He will be there when you
need strength to get up and continue on with life.
Don’t let the troubles your incurring to cause you
to give up on life. Let those troubles make you
stronger. Use them as tools of wisdom and surely
you will find the answers. Now to end my long
winded rambling mode and begin my search for
a word or phrase that I might be able to use for
the title of today’s poem. So it’s off to that place
of my recollection through all I have written here
to that place I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I do believe I found a good title. Now let’s see if
I can do anything with it!!! Here goes……

The Troubles

Scenes of times
just might inlay
the sort of signs
of your dismay.
Troubled views
from where and when
might be news
from where you’ve been.
Scenes might show
their bitter pills
of where you go
and how it feels,
but of course
the troubles found
have a source
of solid ground.
Life might seem
to be disgraced,
but your dream
might be misplaced.
Let Lord God
to show you how
to not applaud
what you endow.
Learn from then
of how and why
where you’ve been
to now get by.

Hehehe there ya go. LOL I thought surely I had written
a poem titled The Troubles, but nope. One using the
word Troubles, but not The Troubles. So now I’ve got
a poem titled The Troubles. Hehehehehe it gets harder
every week to find new titles, being I’ve written well over
6000 poems 🙂 Yeppers I’ve been writing for many moons.
I hope you liked the poem. I might do some poems soon
in my old styles. I enjoy playing with different ventures
of poetry. Yet there are some styles that just don’t turn
me on. None the less, we’ll see what I do next week 🙂
Now I think it’s time for me to be telling ya what I always
tell ya and that is, I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yeppers, 10 more poems with 4 of them being wintry
Christmassy styles. Also once again I wrote 22 haiku.
I sure hope you like a few of them. I guess it’s about
time for me to be searching for that old off switch, but
before I do that I must wish you a most wonderful week.
Remember, Jesus loves you and we do too. Now to
find that confounded off switch hehe. Found it hiding
behind my eyelids waiting for me to sleep hehehehehe.
See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehe 🙂

Winter Will Be

Wild winters mornings
comes blowing in
just like the mornings
of time and agin.
Fall is releasing
its moments hold
to winters doorways
that times have foretold.
Coldness is breathing
winters white smile
that will be coming
to one day compile.
Wonders of wintertime
will be well seen
soon on the tall trees
causing them to lean.
All of the patterns
are found then on cue
as the clouds fill up
a clear sky of blue.
Winter will be unleashing
its magical array
that displays Christmas
coming one day.

The Seconds

Blissful the seconds
come and revive
times that we’ve wondered
are we alive.
Often the seconds
are but a phase
displayed on moments
we’re in the grays.
Though we may miss them
due to our sight
found in the daytime
also at night.
Times oh so blissful
do come to being,
yet they’re not often
what we are seeing.
Sometimes a second
can be founded
with so much peaceful
you’re astounded.
It takes a minute
to sometimes see true
how that a second
can surely change you.

Stop A Moment

In ones worries
some will find
times disarming
peace of mind.
It is often
worries view
that will capsize
all you do.
Don’t let worry
to be seen
as the echoes
bad cuisine.
Use the lessons
from a time
to guide minutes
own design.
Stop a moment,
say a prayer
then let Jesus
give fresh air.
Let your worries
be the phase
learning lessons
will and ways.

Its Time To Be

I’m now awaiting
wintertime’s view
to come and display
oh so brand new.
Wintertime’s moments
white as can be
displayed as echoes
of my history.
I’m now just watching
the clouds floating by
up there above me
found in the sky.
I know that soon
the white snows design
will be announcing
that wonderful time.
That which is Christmas
found amidst winter
will be the season
then front and center.
I’m now just waiting
its time to be
with the beginnings
of which I can see.

Peace Can Still Be

Peace is a journey
many will make
when they are standing
at their mistake.
Some find the journeys
tormented ways
as they’re unleashing
their bad displays.
Peace can still be
in our moments time
if we will one day
just change our mind.
Letting Lord Jesus
live in your heart
is a good moment
you can impart.
Let your self-will
to fall to the side
as you let Jesus
then to abide.
Peace will come surely
if you’ll atone,
for then you’ll never
ever be alone.
God will give peaceful
through our everyday
if we will take time
to kneel down and pray.

Feel the wind
within your fingers
as the coolness
sort of lingers.
Feel the settings
changing hue
with the windy
ways so true.
Hear the sounds
of wind that blows
here and there
as times echoes.
Feel the breeze
of its own task
blowing through
your daily grasp.
Watch the leaves
that blow around
here and there
upon the ground.
Feel the windows
open wide
as dear winter
comes inside.
Soon the doorways
that we see
will be white
upon each tree.
Every moment
that we find
will be seen
as wintertime.

The Fury

Ones with fury
might explode
somewhere surely
down the road
and then maybe
one might be
in the wrong times
Sometimes fury
you unleash
might just end
what could be peace.
When that fury
you do find
seek a moments
peace of mind.
For the fury
of the past
could become
your shadows cast.

come and go
with the moments
that we know.
Many mornings
may just seem
as a nightmare
not a dream.
When those times of
seem as many
let God help you
see a view
that is better
then to do.
Let the times
that aggravate
be a time
of passing date.
Learn to look passed
and find better
sights to see.

God Has Plans

Left finds favors
in the right
with its shadows
day and night.
We need different
ways to view
here and there
and thereunto.
We would surely
be found sad
if we saw just
good no bad.
It’s the portions
that we see
that determine
good degree.
Two sides stories
need be told
so to harness
good from old.
God allows us
times to view
so to learn
what’s best to do.
If no sickness
comes around,
then ones thankful
aren’t so sound.
If you’re stricken
with a time
find the blessings
in design.
Loss of life
or times unglued
look for all
you’ve misconstrued.
God has plans
for all that’s done
with each new
and rising sun.

So Divine

See the stars
at night that glow
in the winters
night of snow.
See the passion
filled with glee
as you fathom
See the moon
so round and bright
on a winters
snowy night.
Fill the winds
that blow on through
in the nights
so fair and true.
See the clouds
just blowing by
as they’re letting
snowflakes fly.
Look for rhythms
on each page
one by one
in center stage.
Seek to find
what that’s adored
as you make
that time explored.
Look for footprints
in the snow
in the path
of where you go.
Watch the stars
as they shine
in the winter
so divine.

for Oct 23, 2010

Some people don’t see
passed their own nose on their face.
Their vision’s hindered.

A storm might arise
when the patterns are unleashed
as anger and hate.

In a looking glass
you might find the true moment.
That’s why ones don’t look.

A butterflies flight
transposes into the sunlight
as a sweet flower.

Songbirds of winter
sing of Christmas and snowflakes
in the dawn of day.

Links to a spider
climb as webbings of desire
to capture their prey.

Mornings signature
makes its way across the field
as shadows of trees.

Hope is a blessing
with moments of elation
that comes from Lord God.

A roses flavor
mirrors its beauty to bees
that come for pollen.

Today will prosper
while the minds of many fail
and see only bad.

Heaven gives hopeful
for the lives that come and go
with pure love and peace.

Looking to the skies
you can see mornings glory.
It dawns a new day.

Conclusions rampage
begins without looking clear
to see the answer.

Within a journal
many pour out their feelings
that ones misunderstand.

Leaves are now falling
so gracefully to the ground
to lay then and rest.

Summertime’s minutes
pass on to shadows of fall
with winter coming.

Looking deep inside
many will not be pretty.
Seek past exterior.

Lasting impressions
are often made on people
in their worst moments.

Genders of flowers
are seen by the honeybees
collecting honey.

A mind is deepest
when in a forest of thought
with trees of cover.

Portions of thoughtful
could become raging rivers
if put to good use.

Inside a minute
a moment can grow blessings
with a little prayer.
