Stumbling Blocks


Hello my friends

How are you this weekend? Of course hehehe many of you
will not be reading this until maybe Monday or Tuesday LOL,
so I hope your week has started off well. Wintertime seems
to be here for sure. It’s white out side as far as the eyes can
see. I thought I would get an early start on writing today 🙂
being I want to try and rest my eye real soon. Lack of sleep
is doing me in and my eyesight is getting very weak due to it.
Firstly I want to ask for some unmentioned prayers for my
mom. She is having some problems, not health. I wish we
lived closer to her and I would pop over and give her a hug,
but there are 2100 miles between us. OK, so it’s onto yet
another topic. Judy and I have been watching quite a few
Christmas programs lately. We’re planning on watching
many more before Christmas gets here hehehehehehehehe.
I do miss being able to ride around a look at the Christmas
lights as we did in Texas. There’s not much to see in form
of Christmas lights up here which is understandable being
I can imagine it’s hard to keep them viewable through the
ice and snow. Yet a few people still try and succeed hehe.
I’ve bought some solar Christmas lights, but have not put
them up being I haven’t thought of where to put the solar
cell. The last few years I had it beside the porch and had
to dig it out of tons of snow practically ever day so it would
be able to get a charge from the “sunlight” or whatever
it could get some light from LOL. Don’t wanna have to
go through all of that again. Yet I may have to. Oh well,
I will see what I can do maybe today or tomorrow. The
reason I needed solar Christmas lights is because there
is no electrical outlet outside and I ain’t about to leave
the door cracked open to run a extension cord outside.
That would let in the ccccccccold. It was 6F degree this
morning when Judy went to work. It’s now 12F degrees
at 8:30 AM. It’s supposed to get up the 33F today YEA.
Hehehe hey, that is above freezing ya know. My weather
program says it might snow this evening and on into the
week off and on. So far it’s been a rather mild winter,
but it has yet to of really begun LOL. There are many
more days of winter to be found. January is usually the
worst month. No matter, I’m sure Judy and I will survive.
We spend most of our time holed up in the PC room. It’s
the warmest room in the house hehehe. Our PC’s put
out heat as well as we have a radiator heater in here
that keeps it warm as well. God is always looking out
for us. I on many days can sense Him in the moments
as a smile is cast across the room. We will all at times
lose track of God’s blessings as troubles occur. When
those times come around, look for the light through
the darkness. God is there with His Strength for us
to use when we are weak. Let the darkened times be
the tools to use on future days to help you see how
you somehow made it through GRACE. We each will
survive many things that at the time will seem as the
worse thing that could ever happen and we might even
think we can’t make it, but yet we do with God’s help.
Looking back on time I can see where I survived many
things that at the time I thought not possible. With God
all things are possible. Let His Son live in you as you
carry on with your daily life and you will be OK as each
turnstile presents stumbling blocks of time. It’s those
stumbling blocks that make us stronger. Be thankful.
Now I guess it’s about time for me to begin my little
venture back through all I have 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 off I go to that
place of my recollection through all of my rambling 🙂
To that place that I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I believe I may have stumbled upon a good title. Now
let’s see what I can do with it, if anything at all LOL.

Stumbling Blocks

Waves of days
are found and stood
some as bad
and some as good.
Stumbling blocks
are poured in place
sometimes with
God’s hidden Grace.
Troublesome times
of situations
might seem as
just devastations.
Yet the problems
found and seen
might just be
your own cuisine.
Made from all
your own designs
wanted from
the time to times.
Then just maybe
God will send
stumbling blocks
as your best friend.
Meant to change
your ways desires
and extinguish
troubled fires.
Stumbling blocks
of times accord
might be sent
by God our Lord.

OK so there ya go. I hope that made at least a little bit
of sense to ya. Yes my brain goes into overdrive from
time to time LOL. God gave me this gift and so I use it
as best that I can. Some don’t realize that I choose to
not charge for my words and poetry. I want to share
my gift with as many as possible and if I were to charge
then it would limit to only those with money. There are
many that are barely making it from day to day with
their finances for I truly understand that issue hehehe.
Welcome to our world 🙂 Yet Judy and I make it with
joy to be together. Things will come and go, but it’s
life that needs to be sought. If you lose yourself in the
things of day to day, you might miss the companionship
that another can give. Give a friend or a loved one a
hug. Heck, give a stranger a hug LOL, but make
sure that they know that you are harmless hehehehe.
They may retaliate if they fear you are wanting to
do other. But even a smile can go a long way. Start
the day off with a smile and kind word and see how
many people you can bring joy to. God will surely
bless you. OK so I guess it’s time to cease rambling
AGAIN hehehe and tell ya what I tell ya every week
and that is, I wrote some more poems and haiku.
Yeppers, 10 more poems with 3 of them Christmas
poems. Also 22 more haiku hehe plus one. Hey, I get
into writing mode and sometimes get carried away.
I hope you enjoy some of them, poems and or haiku.
Well it’s about time 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 freaking off switch hehe.
Found it hiding in the bedroom under the covers 🙂
See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22+1 hehehehehe 🙂

Wings Faraway

Wings of a bird
fly in the sky
carrying heartbeats
so very high.
Found in the clouds
with minutes of time
wings of a bird
seek for much sublime.
Sought through a moment
found in a place
wings of a bird
find minutes of grace.
Fluttering softly
wind beneath sails
a bird makes a story
through timeless details.
Scenes all around it
change day to day
as the bird fly’s
with wings faraway.

Within A Meadow

Peace in a meadow
found in a sight
might seem to be
a shadows delight.
Similar segments
show their designs
found as so mellow
from remembered times.
Within a meadow
time might display
now and forever
with day after day.
Scenes in the distance
from thereunto
could be the blessings
of one time for you.
Peace in a meadow
might sort of seem
as just a moment
found in a dream.

Life envisioned

Timeless seasons
seem to hold
snowy segments
winter cold.
Christmas scenes
from here to there
points of time
display a prayer.
Found in passion
through and through
things remembered
oh so true.
Many blessings
wrapped with joy
fill the hearts
of a girl and boy.
Points of time
now find a way
to enlighten
Christmas Day.

Dear Christmas

Hear the sounds
of Christmas bells
ringing from
some Christmas tales.
All the stories
told so sweet
figgy pudding
good to eat.
Smell the smell
of scented candles
while your singing
songs of Handel’s.
See the lights
on Christmas trees
with ornaments
upon the leaves.
Find the joy
that comes around
when dear Christmas
comes to town.

Let Time Choose

Glance by glance
ones look and see
what might not
be you or me.
Often glances
are not true,
for they’re not
either me or you.
Time to time
we might display
our emotions
wrong one day.
Then at a glance
someone might see
what that’s not
either you or me.
Let time choose
the view you find
before you say
what’s on your mind.

A Great Delight

Paved with blessings
God is found
as a place
of solid ground.
Peace will blossom
through His Son
with the things
that He hath done.
Patterns format
with our views
found within
our daily news.
Let your vision
see more clear
God’s own format
so sincere.
Paved with blessings
God bestows
days directions
to and fro’s.
Life has meaning
through His Name
in the Heartbeat
of The Same.
Through His Son
each day and night
life can be
a great delight.

Where Are Answers?

Where are answers
when confused
and the days
you’re feeling used?
Where are people
when you seek
day to day
and week to week?
These are questions
I ask true
when the minutes
seem so blue.
Then when standing
in the void
I then seek
for what’s enjoyed.
Seeking passed
the questioned sight
and onto
what I delight.
Often segments
seen and done
might leave me
a lonely one,
yet I’ve found
that I have love
that comes from
Lord God above.
Then I think
I must be blind
time to time
with mind to mind.
Now of course
the sights I see
I have found
are given free.
Where are answers
when not seen?
They are found
in self-esteem.
Sometimes ego
can make dense
of your minutes
common sense.

It Takes Action

Minds illusions
can be made
as the signs
of times degrade.
Then our dreams
of our desires
can become
our raging fires.
Burning fragments
false and true
minds illusions
live in you.
It’s OK
to dream a while,
but don’t lose
your moments mile.
Truth is now
today to do.
Don’t just dream
of wishful true.
It takes action
now and then
to make goodness
to begin.

Meant As A Laugh

Miracles happen
as angels arrive
helping out someone
to daily survive.
God sends us angels
in shadows of time
sometimes in moments
of dismal design.
Sometimes an angel
might be me or you
sent in a moment
with something to do.
Miracles happen
as angels unite
enhancing moments
of God’s Holy Light.
It might seem folly
in timeless accord,
but it might be then
sent from The Lord.
Given as blessings
meant as a laugh
to help a moment
saddened from past.

for Dec 11, 2010

Jingling moments
of Christmas bells of winter
announce Santa Claus.

Centered emotions
place heartbeats of survival
surrounded by love.

Time counted sideways
leaves many looking cockeyed
not seeing it clear.

I is a small world
that many choose to thrive in
while not seeing truth.

Many flowers bloom
even as wintertime comes
with tons of white snow.

Sorrowful moments
make way for better designs
to be thankful for.

Life in the fast lane
will wear you down most quickly.
Take time to enjoy.

Letters in sequence
can arrange a good story
or create a lie.

In a mere moment
time can be found as a dream
and lose sight of truth.

Looks can deceive you
leaving you opened to lies
and not who they are.

Yesterdays hard times
can awaken today’s smiles
through your memories.

Learning to rethink
can make the moment thrive
with a bit of chance.

Often our lessons
come from a bitter moment
that time has given.

Slaying a problem
can be sometimes misconceived.
It might cause problems.

The Christmas flowers
enhance the seasonal views
with bright red colors.

The clouds in the sky
can be anything we want
if we imagine.

A simple heartbeat
can make another’s to beat
with a little love.

One misty morning
brings hope for a spring blossom
soon after winter.

Lives are awakened
with the beginnings of time
written in true love.

A heart is shallow
if it seeks only value
through dollar amount.

Ventures of Christmas
are like windows of blessings
with dreams to fulfill.

Predicting moments
can set you up for failure.
Just do your very best.

Onlookers of time
stand and watch as time fly’s by.
They miss the moment.
