Your Own Gift


Hello my friends

How have ya been? I hope you are staying well. If not then
as well as possible :). Yea I know, we all have our ups and
downs with health issues huh. My old body has been running
low on steam lately. It seems I get tired quicker. I guess it’s
that part of life I was warned about LOL. Getting old! Yep
the Old pill hits hard sometimes. Well, Judy and I have been
doing a lot of just hanging around the house lately being that
neither of us has really felt like doing much. Hopefully after
the weather finally gets itself settled, both of us will get our
cameras out and head out on a little photo search. I have yet
to of gone through the pictures we took last time, being I have
not been up to par health wise, but I will :). I still along with
Judy will slip up to Farm Town, Pet Society and Yoville once
in a while, or as often as I can. Yet that only takes just a few
minutes and I can drift in and out without fear of messing up
something badly LOL. The weather up here is getting much
cooler much faster than it did last year or at least it seems
like it hehehe. Though my weather programs say that it may
slip back up to the lower 70’s for the next few days. It was
the high of 56 degrees yesterday (Saturday). Fall is coming
and it seems to be followed close behind by dear Mr. Winter.
When our heat came on, I knew that the weather was surely
changing LOL. I heard this noise and I spent a while trying
to figure out what it was until I walked past the furnace and
I heard it rumble LOL. It said in its own words, it’s getting
cold dude hehehe! It’s been raining off and on up here and
it’s scheduled to rain a tad this evening, but time will tell :).
I have a very special prayer request for a kid that I used to
sponsor in AA years ago. He is in some trouble and needs our
prayers. He’s no longer a kid now days, being it was around
1991-1993 that I sponsored him. He really needs our prayers.
So if you could, please send a prayer for KC. Ok so it’s on
with the journal. I have been doing a little extra in my YoVille
visits lately hehehe. I’ve been writing a haiku each day to
put in my coin run LOL. So each of the haikus are listed at
the end of all of the others that I wrote Saturday morning :).
I started writing haikus for my coin runs because it seemed
just a little bit better than, “coin run, see ya hehehe”. Yep,
I think I have spoiled a few there now too. They said they like
the haikus and want me to always do em. Ooooooooooopsy!
Hehehe, I may not do them every day, but I will most surely
do them once in a while LOL. Well, other than that, life here
on Mars seems pretty same old same old hehehe. Ok it may
not be Mars, but Mars Hill is just a little drive away hehehe.
I’m still trying to get used to the way of life up here, but it’s
still a tad out of my style. I guess I will spend my time as I
have and that is here waiting for pictures to snap and poems
to write. I thank God for giving me the ability to write as I
do, for it is the gift He gave to me. He also gave me all my
photography skills which I try to use as often as I can. God
gives us each one abilities. We can either stow them away
and act as though they don’t exist, or we can put them to
use. Many of you are using your abilities every day and you
may not even know it. They come so natural to you that you
do not see it. Like me playing the drums. It’s simple to me,
but others cannot see how I can move my hands so quickly.
Look into your heart and search your feelings. You might
discover your own gift and find that you have either been
using it all along or find a way to begin using it or them!
Well with that said, I guess it’s time for me to be venturing
back through all these words I’ve written 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 like a flash to
that place of recollection that I like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. Ok so I might of exaggerated on the away like a
flash part LOL. It might be more like a little flicker hehe.
Yet I think I have stumbled upon a good phrase that may
work well for the title for today’s poem. Ok so now let’s
see what, if anything, I can do with it. Here goes!!!!

Your Own Gift

The days may hide
your minds detail
and cause your gifts
to not set sail.
Your own gift
may be just waiting
as time goes by
God gave you
and I a tool,
yet some uses it
as a fool.
Your own gift
may be inside
of which you always
just denied,
Yet the gift
God’s Given you
will always be
what guides you through.

Well I do hope that made a little bit of sense to ya. I just gave
myself an idea for today’s new Yoville haiku message hehehehe.
The time clock is ticking and Judy will soon be home, so I’ve
gotta find an ending for this hehehe. Here’s one. This will show
me how many actually read this LOL. My birthday is tomorrow.
Yeppers I will be 53 Aug 31. This should be interesting hehehe.
Just to see who actually reads down this far hehehehehehehehe!
To my good friend Ben Geurts. Thank you for all that you have
done for Judy and I. Your one in a million dude. Judy and I
will most surely be celebrating with you and your family no matter
if you are in Holland :). I am sure you will also be celebrating
with me! Well with that said I reckon I need to be searching for
that old off switch on myself, but before I do that I guess I need
to tell ya what I always do, yet I have already somewhat spilled
the beans on the haiku a little LOL. None the less, I wrote 10
more poems and 22 haiku plus the 7 I wrote for my YoVille
messages hehehe. Oh and I wrote one more Christmas poem to
get ya in the mood hehe. We simply love Christmas. Anyways
that’s all :)!!!! I hope you have a wonderful week and always
remember that Jesus loves you and we do too. Now where
is that dad gum off switch? I can never find it when I need it.
There you are you little sneaky off switch. I see ya hiding
behind my cereal bowl LOL! See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems
10 and 22 +7 hehehe

Found Within You

Wonderful moments
are found in the view
as we lose blind eyes
and look with anew.
Looking with heartfelt
and not demise
makes better moments
to see with our eyes.
So take your bitterness
and toss it away
all of your hateful
and then kneel and pray.
Wonderful moments
will come then to be
there with the prayerful
of all that you see.
You’ll see the moments
much better to view,
because they were heartfelt
and found within you.

A Simple Moment

A simple little flower
in a simple little place
can make a simple moment
with a smile upon my face.
A simple little fragrance
from a simple little view
can make a simple moment
to live in me and you.
A simple bit of peaceful
that a simple time has shown
can make a simple moment
with much time then to atone.
A simple little flower
that’s a simple bit of spring
can make a simple moment
to live in everything.
A simple little minute
that we often just ignore
can make a simple moment
that we might each just adore.

Might Never Let Go

When wayward enters
our peace is awry
leaving us standing
with just who and why.
Letters of vengeance
so many will write
making the wayward
to live day and night.
Keep your pen steady
and think it on through
before you go doing
the things that you do.
Sometimes the wayward
is just from a phase,
so don’t go adding
your anger for days.
Also when writing
make sure that you know
that what you’re writing
might never let go.

Closing of Summer

Summer is closing
its doors of its time
as fall is coming
with all its sublime.
Soon I’ll remember
the summer that passed
and view it surely
as shadows that cast.
Summer is ending
its own day and night
as it shows daily
it’s last times delight.
Cool breezes blowing
are showing so true
that fall is coming
with a colorful hue.
The closing of summer
is coming sincere
here in New England
the end of the year.

Here And Thereto

Pictures on the walls
seem to speak unto me
words that I’m hearing
and things I can see.
Sentences framed up
in stories detail
seems to in some way
make mind set sail.
Pictures we’ve taken
and hung on the wall
seem to in some way
stand out so tall.
My eyes go searching
for tidbits of then
to live as a moment
that time will begin.
My thoughts are swaying
from each little view
of all the pictures
from here and thereto.

Conquer The Storm

Storms are abounding
as anger will thrive
if you will store it
and keep it alive.
Storms of explosions
will tear down the road
if we don’t stop them
before they explode.
Let not your anger
to carry your heart
into the vastness
that time tears apart.
Storms will come surely
and cause ones to grieve,
yet we can conquer
if we each believe.
Believing in Jesus
can conquer the storm
and lead you surely
away from the harm.

Nows Morning Rain

When it is raining
I seem to regain
senses of value
from nows morning rain.
I watched the raindrops
falling with ease
as they each watered
to flowers and trees.
I stood there watching
the rain falling down
as it went splashing
right there on the ground.
I heard its singing
way up above me
as a pitter patter
with a little melody.
When it is raining
I listen to hear
all of its rhythm
that I so endear.

A Different Point of View

When in the middle
it’s hard to look out,
because in the middle
you’re all thereabout.
It pays to step back
and view what you see
a bit from the middle
another degree.
When in the middle
the others you view
may be a little
judgmental to you.
Step from the middle
a little today
and see the viewing
in another display,
for being too close
to the problems at hand
the middle a little
may not be so grand.
Let yourself see from
a different point of view
and then just maybe
you might then see you.

Christmastime Peace

White snow is coming
as time does detail
while I am dreaming
of Christmas so well.
I feel the essence
of snowflakes of white
landing in dream world
that I so delight.
Soon winter’s coming
with Christmas white snow
and the beginning
of Ho Ho Ho Ho.
Santa’s getting ready
to take on his flight
found in the middle
of Christmas Eve night.
White snow is coming
with summers release
of the fall colors
to Christmastime peace.

Before You’re To Start

A journey begins
one step at a time
through all the actions
of moments and mind.
Moments will prosper
if journeys are fed
better beginnings
for times there ahead.
A journey’s started
with times do and say
and they’ll determine
the sight of the day.
A journey begins
with just but a choice
leading the body
through action and voice.
Don’t let your journey
to tear you apart.
Let God to guide you
before you’re to start.

for Aug 29, 2009

Minutes will gather
when our time has found sadness.
Learn to let it go.

Heard are the raindrops
from early morning showers
as they sing their song.

Scenes may empower,
yet it’s us that gives them strength
to change emotions.

Let yourself broaden
as life moves through its mazes.
The journey is better.

Long lines of people
stand and watch as time goes by,
yet many never see.

Portions of prayerful
in the minutes of each day
makes life much better.

Leaving your anger
without extinguishing it
can explode again.

A ready flower
awaits for all the raindrops
to nourish its roots.

Dandelions growing
are the sure sign of blessings
that come from the weeds.

Letters sent homeward
may be written deep inside.
Never ever seen.

Loneliness enters
as doors of time swing thereto
and enter the mind.

Patchwork ideas
make up many of our views.
We all have our own.

Wisdom is not gained
by one mere segment in time.
It’s gained through moments.

Because is a word
that so many over use
as their excuses.

Fragrance is entered
when flowers make themselves known.
The aroma’s so sweet.

People stop and stare
at someone’s times misfortune
and just walk away.

Time is a blessing
that we many times ignore
until it is over.

Onwards to today
through the portholes of timeframes.
Yesterday is gone.

A wise man’s silent
when he has nothing to say.
Actions speak louder.

Search for a blessing
and you will surely find one.
Don’t lose your focus.

Hands in the breezes
are the fluctuant flavors
of journeys in time.

Headaches that gather
surely make much confusion.
Take time for yourself.

Wizard is conscience
