God’s In Control


Hello my friends

Well I’m getting a real early start on this mess today,
being I’ve gotta go out in a bit and dig our car out of
the snow so Judy can go to work. Friday she came
home sick again and took off Saturday due to it, but
it looks like she may be over the mess FINALLY :),
but time will tell. Anyways, if she is going to work in
the morning, the car needs to be able to move LOL.
Yep, we got a tad of snow Thursday. Not a whole
lot, but just enough to bury our car. We spent most
of Saturday laying up in bed together watching TV
as well as Friday evening when she got home. I did
my best to pamper her, but then I do that anyways,
so not much of a change hehehe. I called and talked
to my good buddy Mark an hour or so ago. Him and
his wife stay up late on Saturdays. LOL they said it
was to try and get the kids to go to bed, but me thinks
that it may have just been the weekend excitement 🙂
In any sense we talked for a long while about all our
childhood days. We grew up together in Dallas TX.
When my family moved us away to Wills Point, he
and I did a lot of visiting back and forth up until
around 1980. Then we both sort of lost track of
one another due to my divorce and moving away.
Anyway, I found him on FaceBook last year and
we’ve been revisiting our childhood mischief hehe.
Only talking hehehe, ain’t no way I’d ever repeat
all that again even if I could. LOL I would love to
be able to relive the good times, but bypass the
troubles and all, but that ain’t possible, so enjoy
the memories we do. Right now my asthma is
giving me a hard time. I went out a few minutes
ago to shovel snow, but I began wheezing for a
breath as my asthmas kicked in. My respirator
usually takes a few moments to start working.
I’m already breathing more calmly 🙂 Had this
mess all my life. Nothing new LOL! Now onto
yet another topic. Firstly I think I’ll go out and
give the shoveling a gung ho. Be back in a few!
I’m back with an hour to spare hehehe. It’s now
4:11 AM and Judy gets up around 5 AM hehehe.
If I finish this real quickly I might even be able
to lay down with her for a couple of minutes :),
but my hair is wet right now, being it was froze
and I had to run some water over it to thaw it
out. Yes my beard was frozen as well being it’s
minus 15 degrees Fahrenheit right now brrrr.
My nose is thawing and beginning to run hehe.
Yep that thing even froze LOL. In any sense
I got the car dug out and made a path down
the driveway to where our landlord stopped
so she can drive easily out. I’ll have to start
it up a few minutes before she leaves so that
the heater will thaw the windows. I sprayed
some deicer on them, but it didn’t do much but
help me free up the windshield wipers hehehe.
The way things are going it looks as though
we may not make it to Texas being Judy has
missed a lot of work without pay and we’ve
had a lot of bills to crop up as well as all the
problems with our car in Christmas and my
PC being repaired. If God sees fit for us to
make it to Texas, I’m sure He will give us
the means to do so, but insurance, tags and
inspection on the car comes up the first of
March as well as we are needing to buy some
more heating oil being we’re down to about
a quarter of a tank. Keep us in your prayers,
being I really miss all my friends and family.
Hey, the road does go both ways ya know 🙂
We definitely would welcome some company.
Mom said that her and my sister might make
it up here this summer. Surely time will tell.
God has a way of putting the brakes on if He
sees there might be a problem and I do worry
about my old car making it to Texas and back
safely. God’s in control. I find sometimes that
when I am postponed for a moment that it is
preventing destruction of another. My mom
and me were talking about that yesterday.
Well I guess I’ve rambled enough and need to
begin my search 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. I believe I stumbled upon one not to far
back hehehe. Here goes. Hope it works 🙂

God’s In Control

Times will tell
from timeless toll
what’s so well
God’s in control.
Brakes are found
when it’s not right
on somedays
within our sight.
God’s in control
each leap and bound
to provide tools
each time around.
He allows troubles
things to learn
so to teach
which bridges to burn.
See now how truly
God’s in control
as He gives blessings
to save someone’s soul.

Ok so it might not be one of my greatest hehehehe.
I tried LOL. Give me a break, I just got over an
asthma attack. I’m fine now yet still not breathing
so well, but it will get better the more I relax. Well
I hope you enjoyed my rambling as well the poem or
maybe hehehe just the rambling or the poem. One
or the other or both LOL. It’s time for me to tell ya
what I tell ya every week and that is I wrote some
more poems and haiku. Yep 10 more poems with
3 of them wintry Christmassy styles and yes I wrote
22 more haiku for all my haiku lovers out there 🙂
So it’s about time for me to be searching for that
old off switch, but not before I wish you a most
wonderful week. Remember, Jesus loves you and
we do too. Now to find that off switch. Hehehehe
found it in the snow. Had to thaw it out hehehehe.
See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S. I’ll send this after Judy is headed off to work.
I’m gonna go and lay down with her for a few minute
right now….. PEACE and OUT 🙂
P.S. agin hehe. My old back went out and I had to
let it ease up before coming in here to do my editing
on this mess, so sending it a bit later than I wrote it.

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

Winds of Winter

Winds of winter
blow on through
All the winds
of winter’s scenes
cover up the
grass once green.
Windy moments
find a way
to encompass
every day.
Scenes of beauty
from the winds
make the pictures
without ends.
Winter winds
might seem real cold
but they give
much to behold.
Fluffy snowflakes
large and small
winter winds
will blow them all.
While creating
winds of winter
make the view.

Found As Echoes

Found as echoes
sometime seems
as some nightmares
maybe dreams.
Maybe future,
maybe past
many echoes
surely cast.
Living lessons
far and wide
are as echoes
time applied.
It’s the moments
said and done
that determines
lost and won.
If you learned from
then that day
the echoes might just
go away.

Our Wildest Dreams

Sights of beauty
will unfold
if we look at
stories told.
Word by word
the sights display
here and now
with day to day.
Lines on places
paint a frame
where they go
or whence they came.
Look beyond
the lines you see
and then see
their history.
Find within
the stories told
to then behold.
Search the sights
of here to there
and then see
what none compare.
Flight of stairs
of many scenes
can become
our wildest dreams.

Use Good Judgment

Lessons become
a sight to see
when they are found
in you and me.
God gives choices
each to choose
which to win
or which to lose.
Time can become
a frame impaired
when eluding
One who cared.
Let Lord Jesus
shine within
time to time
and now agin.
Use good judgment
will and way
as you face
right now today.

Storms Can Be

Storms may seem
to be no good,
but they do
what things they should.
Signs of times
can seem to be
as no good
for you and me,
but sometimes
are needed done
on some morns
and setting sun.
Storms can be
a tasted treat
flavored with
real good to eat.
Seen from eyes
of scenic times
storms can make
some great designs

Peace is a moment
that’s found within time
with many seeking
that moments design.
Yet many people
don’t know not a way
how they are part of
the wrongful display.
Many times people
will think they are right
with their illusion
in poor sighted light.
Peace is a blessing
that we need believe
then use God’s power
to surely perceive.
Look to your heartbeat
and find how to be.
Peace is a moment
that we need to see.

Christmas Thoughts

Found as segments
in a field
is snow piled up
not concealed.
Winter dreams
in scenic ways
are the segments
in the days.
Found as snowflakes
one by one
laid about
beneath the sun.
Christmas thoughts
I then delight
as it turns to
dark of night.
Snow filled moments
young and old
are the stories
times foretold.
Found as segments
in the scene
are the makings
of a dream.
Christmas morsels
snowy white
help to make
what I delight.
Each snowflake
that’s laid in place
puts a smile
upon my face.
Christmas dreams
that none compare
now are found
most everywhere.

God Gives Chances

In the mornings
brightest sun
I see things
that can be done.
Surely hopeful
now in time
can make greater
yours and mine.
Every morning
gives us hope
time beyond
our greatest scope.
God gives chances
found each day
to help many
find away.
Yet it takes some
changed desires
to put out
the wrongful fires.
Let the flames
of Jesus burn
as the lessons
you should learn.

Beginnings find
a place to be
sometimes seen
a slight degree.
It is sometimes
painted best
as beginnings
daily test.
Often minutes
seem to pass
leaving only
lower class,
yet sometimes
the minutes prove
they are needed
win or lose.
Let beginnings
find a place
with a smile
upon your face,
then just maybe
they will grow
to what’s real
to then bestow.

Mornings Snow

Snow now glistens
in the sun
as I’m playing
having fun.
White formations
here and there
display surely
Snowy billows
in the way
are as oceans
whitest day.
Scenes profoundly
seem to gleam
as my wildest
childhood dream.
Whitish patterns
to and fro
are this winters
mornings snow.

for Jan 22, 2011

While looking upwards
you might miss what’s below you.
Be aware of time.

Lines on someone’s face
might display a great story
that’s written within.

Bluebonnets flourish
in a field that’s full of grass
and create pictures.

Making snow angels
requires lying on the ground
and spreading your arms.

Ones might be confused
with the thoughts of tomorrow
through nows illusions.

Pointless is anger
if it creates no goodness.
Use it for better.

A field full of snow
makes the distance much brighter
within the sunlight.

The gears of the brain
can sometimes slip a little
when sleep is ignored.

A daffodil grows
as sunshine gleams overhead
fueling its passion.

Wintertime’s fragrance
comes as valleys of snowfall
and coolness of breeze.

Beyond tomorrow
comes the chances yet to see
due to today’s sights.

A letter from old
could display how that we’ve changed
as time has moved on.

The right here and now
can become devastating
if we lose focus.

Our true lots in life
might differ from how we view.
You might need to change.

Pure aggravation
might come into the picture
if out of pocket.

Some find tomorrow
as life that cannot be found
unless it’s their way.

A rose in winter
finds no way it can blossom,
so it waits for spring.

The horror of time
comes in different pictures
which many misread.

Having a flower
and letting it to blossom
will give more beauty.

Newness of mornings
brings chances beyond the night
for great things to see.

Parts of a snowflake
might seem as they are alike,
but unique they are.

Tomorrows answer
might be found in now today
as doing your best.
