God’s Handiwork


Hello my friends

How’s it going with you this week or weekend as the case may be?
I hope you’re hanging in there. Judy and I have been keeping the
windows and doors open to let in a breeze or two LOL. I haven’t
taken off all the storm windows, being a few of the windows don’t
have good screens. Don’t want any more bugs in here than get in
already LOL. The Hot Shot No Pest Strips seems to be doing good.
We haven’t had trouble from the flies. Last year they almost drove
me nuts hehehe. I told Judy to keep and eye out for those fly strips
and she found a few and grabbed a hand full hehehe. LOL sounds
like a commercial don’t it :). Naw, just happy as a lark that I’m not
being pestered with black flies this year. Judy and I took our little
sightseeing photo drive last Thursday and we got a few good shots.
We have though decided that if we’re going back to Deer Isle later
this fall for more pictures, we’re taking a different route. Those
roads were horrible that we were on. I don’t care if we’ve gotta go
50 miles or more out of our way LOL,,,,We’re not taking the path
that we took Thursday again. Heck, we may even see some great
sights worth a snap shot or two on a different route. Yet that is a
ways away from today and I have time to use my Trip maker and
find an alternate route to take. We may have to stay on I-95 a tad
longer, but hey, it’s worth it to elude the roads 175 and thereabouts.
The weather has been on the warm side for the passed few days up
here. Hey, for up here, 89 F is hot. Today’s high is supposed to be
around 81 F though. Tomorrow and Tuesday are supposed to get
back up to 87 F. Yet then the temps go back down reaching the 70’s
by the end of the week. Then by next week it’s supposed to be in the
upper 60’s hehe Fahrenheit of course. We would be frying if it were
Celsius LOL!!! Ok, enough with the weather update hehehe. I seem
like a weather forecaster don’t I :). Naw, I just have good weather
programs on my PC. Not just one, but many and I compare them
together to get an accurate or semi accurate forecast :). Let’s see,
what else is in the news?? My musician friend Dave from Texas
is in Caribou Maine now visiting his mom. He called me the other
day to tell me that he won’t be able to make it down to jam. That
made me rather sad. I was really looking forward to seeing him :(.
Oh well, maybe one day I will see somebody LOL,,,,,,,,, yea right!
I wish my health were better and I would try to get a flight to Texas.
Oh and please don’t ask what’s wrong LOL. If ya don’t know then
it would take me forever to explain hehehehe!!! Oh well, that’s life.
Time to move along with the journal and get off of that subject :).
Judy and I are hoping to be able to make it to Caribou Wednesday
to see her daughters and grandkids. Too bad Dave will already
be back in Texas then. LOL Judy and I have to make tons of stops
anywhere we drive to, being I have no colon and no colostomy bag.
It usually take us an hour longer getting anywhere with me and my
bathroom breaks LOL. Sure wish they would of known more about
Ulcerative Colitis in the early 90’s LOL. It makes for a mere struggle
to go anywhere anymore. Yet when we do go ANYWHERE, I load
my camera in the car in hopes of finally seeing and getting a picture
of a bull moose. Yet I do take pictures often as she is driving and I
even sometimes get some great shots of landscapes that way LOL.
I never get tired of looking at God’s handiwork and getting a little
on film or hehehe photo card, being I don’t use film anymore hehe.
Could you imagine how much film I would go through in a week :)!
God paints pictures all around us for us to see, yet we’re many times
moving too quick to see them, so take the time to slow down ever so
often and look at what God has done. You may be surprised at what
all you’ve missed in your day to day rush. Well, it’s time for me to
be taking my little trip back through my words and 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 away I go to that place of recollection that I like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I do believe I found a good title. Now
let’s see what I can do with it if anything at all LOL!!!

God’s Handiwork

Pictures are hanging
in many a place
there as the blessings
from God’s Holy Grace.
God’s handiwork
is here over there
so to be moments
of answers to prayer.
So many miss them
those blessings each day
as they go onwards
their own hurried way.
Take a little time now
to search and to find
all of the blessings
to help you unwind.
Pictures are hanging
as photos for free,
yet we need slow down
and take time to see.

Well, there it is. Good bad or indifferent LOL. I guess I need to be
finding that off switch on myself before Judy gets home from work.
She is off again Wednesday and Thursday and I think it’s Wednesday
that we are going up to Caribou to see the kids. That will be nice.
Yet I still wish Dave could be there :(. I miss my friends. Oh well,
enough with the sadness. Time to try and cheer up. Judy is supposed
to stop and get me some orange juice on her way home. Trying to
lay off the caffeine being it kind of adds to my problems a tad hehehe.
Not a lot being everything runs right through me LOL FAST. I guess
I need to be telling ya about the poems huh hehehe. Yeppers I wrote
another load full of poems. 10 poems with one semi Christmas poem
in the midst of em. Yes I wrote some haiku, yet I sort of got carried
away and wrote 31 by accident hehehe. Hey, when I start writing,
I can’t always keep track of how many I’ve done. The thoughts just
seem to come in by truck loads :). In any event, I hope you enjoy a
few of em at least. Now it’s time to get ready to search my off switch,
but before I do that, Have a wonderful week and remember Jesus
loves you and we do too. Now where’s that confounded off switch
hiding this week LOL?????????? I remember hehehehe It’s in the
refrigerator LOL…..See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems.
10 and 22 + 9 hehehe

Morning So Sweet

In the night air
the coolness we feel
is that of blessings
so very real.
In through the windows
the night air just flows
bringing its fragrance
where all it goes.
I can smell morning
as dawns early light
saying it’s ending
the long lasting night.
In the night air
the words in a way
say soon is coming
the dawn of new day.
I can feel sweetly
the night air complete
ending its journey
with morning so sweet.

Stories Inside

Reading a sentence
with not a word
means to look closely
to seen and not heard.
Reading a story
that you cannot hear
might need you being
a bit more sincere.
So listen closely
to what ones will say
as they continue
their own special way.
Reading a moment
that times will foretell
may not be displayed
too very well,
so let your heartbeat
take it in stride
as you let trueness
of stories inside.

It May Not Be Clear

Within one hand
ones will be real good,
on the other hand
a bit misunderstood.
Within one hand
our views will be found,
on the other hand
they may not be sound.
Within one hand
we might not be true,
on the other hand
it may just be you.
Within one hand
our choice may be right,
on the other hand
it may be our light.
Within one hand
the echo’s sincere,
on the other hand
it may not be clear.

Summer Will Cease

Paintings of summer
now hang oh so tall
yet they will leave
with beginning of fall.
In every painting
the colors I see
now display summer
to the greatest degree.
yet soon the summer
will leave us to view
fall colors painted
from here thereunto.
Paintings of summer
now shine in the sun
with all the moments
that time has begun,
but as I said
soon summer will cease
leaving us paintings
of fall color peace.

In A Shadow

Just in a shadow
right now might appear
seeming as minutes
of thens yesteryear.
Just in a shadow
the fragrance you view
may just be minutes
not very true.
So if a shadow
displays what you feel
make sure you see
what it tries to conceal.
Sometimes the shadows
may not be right
displaying what all
that we delight.
Just in a shadow
there may be a scene
that holds the moments
you know not what mean.

God’s Brush

Wild winters mornings
with white snow piled high
is what’s remembered
I cannot deny.
Cold winters mornings
with breezes that blow
make many mountains
from fresh fallen snow.
Scenes in the distance
are glaring and white
glistening in sunshine’s
bright morning light.
On winters mornings
I can remember
the essence of Christmas
found in December.
Wild winters mornings
are painted all around
with that of snowfall
there on the ground.
Even on the hillsides
textured so true
there is the display
of white snowy hue.
Cold winters mornings
are painted so lush
with all the white snow
found on God’s brush.

I Surely Miss

Things I remember
and times I recall
are all the blessings
of winter to fall.
Every little moment
will somehow be found
as I remember
with times going round.
Things I remember
and times I can see
paint all the pictures
that happened to me.
I view the minutes
with difference each day
as they’re remembered
their own special way.
Things I remember
and now reminisce
bring me the minutes
that I surely miss.

Written On The Wall

Links to tomorrow
are found in today
as they’re connected
in some special way.
We may not see them
the links of the chain
that link tomorrow
to times and again.
Scenes in a threshold
swing to and fro
as they’re tomorrows
choose where to go.
Links to tomorrow
may not be good
and what we’re seeing
a bit misunderstood.
Look close the threshold
and try to foretell
whether it’s goodness
or just leads to Hell.
You may see answers
written on the wall
that say to enter
or not to at all.

You’ll Stay In Line

Listen to your heart,
but also your mind
and maybe answers
you might then find.
Your mind may not
agree with your heart
and it makes sometimes
then hard to start.
Sometimes your mind
is right so to say
and your own heartbeat
wrong then that day.
That’s why it’s better
to pray for God’s Will
before you let heartbeats
and minds to fulfill.
Listen to your heart,
yet also your mind
and also God’s word
and you’ll stay in line.

The Treasures

Times we hold onto
and things we release
might be the treasures
leading to peace.
Treasures in measures
of whethers and ways
are many portals
of times in a maze.
So many treasures
are hidden from view
and at the moment
may not seem so true.
Yet there are treasures
in each day ahead
found in the blessings
of many we dread.
The treasures may be
what now is dismay
as we look back
on some future day.

for Aug 15, 2009

Trouble finds trouble
when the doors all swing the same.
Look for better ways.

Little is a dime store
with only dollar items.
Be just who you are.

Waves of a rhythm
are patterns of many people.
Some cause the wakes.

Time becomes jumbled
as pages are quickly turned.
Slow down and enjoy.

Many trails are blazed
with the flags of our worries
leaving only dust.

A flare gun is shot
and the race of life begins,
yet do any win?

Plant now your wisdom
that you’ve gained from time gone by.
Let others harvest.

Don’t be a clinger
hanging on to what that’s done.
Let time go its way.

We are each novice
then pages make the journey
and make us each skilled.

Trials are teachers
that may become grueling,
yet they are needed.

Summer makes headway
with the mornings beginning.
It must start somewhere.

Freshly plowed meadows
bring essence of aroma
that starts me sneezing :).

Wintertime’s coming,
yet it must still pass through fall
with paths to follow.

A hand full of dreams
in a pocket full of time
leaves hope there within.

Wise is the patient,
for impatient causes pain
that patience avoids.

Sunny summer days
make highlights out of blossoms
that began in spring.

Yearning for many
makes hearts to become tainted
with only but want.

Time is a giver
that God has adorned each day,
yet many want more.

The tide flows inwards
and then it takes what it will
back out to the sea.

Many knots are tied
when love is within full bloom,
yet many slip loose.

Never is a word
that many will over use
as they are growing.

A chain becomes weak
if the links are not cared for.
Take care of your chain.

Some see tomorrow
while others see yesterday
with no forgiveness.

Let your mind to fly
on the wings of dreamers birds
when you’re needing rest.

Look passed the moment
when the moment is unclear
then look once again.

Cars in the distance
are roaring on down the road
as ghost of the day.

Carefully doorways
need be entered or yet not.
Be a bit cautious.

Many view Heaven
as a place that time will end.
I think it begins.

Gracious is Lord God
with the patience that He has
for each one of us.

We say many words
many never understand,
yet our smiles they know.

The minds of many
head down paths in search of coins
yet find only few.
