Another Hurdle


Hello my friends

It’s Sunday afternoon and I thought I would attempt
to get this mess written LOL. How have you been?
We’ve been hanging low in the saddle for the passed
few days hehehe. It seems we’ve gotten back to our
nightowl ways as we were back before we moved up
here. I worked nightshift for almost 30 years with
an ever so often switch to dayshift. Judy used to stay
up all night when we first met and then she took a job
working nightshift at Whataburger and then another
at Quality Inn. It seems that neither of us can sleep
at night. Of course I can’t sleep at any timeframe,
but I am more apt to nod off for a cat nap during the
day than at night LOL. Yeppers, the Pearce’s home
is one lively place hehehe. The weather up this way
hasn’t been too bad lately. It’s been cold with some
snow ever so often, but nothing like the passed few
winters. It got down to almost minus 20F degrees
last night, but today’s supposed to be a high of 14F
degrees. Right now it’s 10F degrees. LOL tonight’s
low is supposed to be 13F and tomorrows supposed
to get up to 34F. The weather has been really weird
hasn’t it! Yeppers, there’s been a few states to get
snow that don’t normally get it. That’s life, always
changing. It might get back to its regular format
sometime in the future LOL. In the mean time we
will survive. I took a few pictures outside our front
door a few minutes ago and almost got blinded with
the sunlight reflecting off of the snow. I had to just
hang the camera out the door and snap it in hopes
of getting some good pictures. I took a few pictures
the 20th when it was snowing a tad. I might add
them in the stationary along with the few pictures
I took today. Anyways, yes it is mighty white up
here as usual. It’s supposed to rain tomorrow
and it might wash some of the snow away, but
also it might refreeze later as it’s supposed to
snow again Tuesday evening. Go figure LOL!
I plan on heading back to bed as soon as I get
this article written. I’m nodding as it is hehehe.
Thank God we haven’t got anything important
to do today. I’m sneezing my head off right now.
I sure wish this cold/allergy or whatever would
leave me alone. They say that every time you
sneeze another brain cell bites the big one LOL.
I’m getting dumber by the moment with all of my
machine gun sneezes hehehehehehehehehehehe.
I don’t just sneeze once or twice. Well, it’s on
to yet another topic. Judy’s sister Barbara is
doing well, but getting tired of all the radiation
treatments. But they are saving her life, so I’m
sure she thanks God for them. Hehehe maybe
not at the moment, but I’m sure she will thank
Him in the future. Nobody enjoys the turmoil
that comes into their lives. OK there may be
a few that get a high from the turmoil, but in
my book they’re sick LOL. To me, the turmoil
is a forger of life making us to be stronger each
day as metal is heated and reheated making it
harder and stronger. I know sometimes the
problems that come along might catch you off
of your guard and leave you in a weakened
state, but you can find lessons through it all.
Learn to pay more attention to what’s going
on and don’t put off what you can do today.
A lot of times we will say I’ll do it tomorrow
and tomorrow never comes, being something
happens to prevent you from doing yesterdays
portion. Don’t be the creator of your own
turmoil. Yeppers, we all screw up time to
time being we’re human hehehe or at least a
few of us are. There are many that question
whether I’m human or not LOL! None the
less, God knows what is true and He has all
of the answers. The answers may not be what
any of us ever wanted, but none the less they
are the answers. He knows what’s best for
us, good or bad. Yes, God allows some bad
to happen in our lives, for I’m sure He knows
that lessons will be found and growth will
be made. I’ve had so many struggles in my life
that I’ve grown to expect them 🙂 Every day
is yet another hurdle to overcome or to learn
from. Let God give you strength through His
Son. Now I guess I need to cease all of my
rambling and take a little trip back through
all that I’ve written here to see if I can find
a good word or phrase that will work for the
title for today’s brand new poem. So, it’s
away I go to that place of my recollection
that I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE to
search for that title hehehe. I think I may
have found one. Now let’s see what I can do
with it LOL! Here goes nothing. Hope not 🙂

Another Hurdle

Another day
might pass from view
leaving all what’s
gone askew.
Another hurdle
found in place
might be what that
helps the race.
Sometimes hurdles
daily found
are what helps us
get around.
Yet some hurdles
might be seen
now not knowing
what they mean.
Another hurdle
that you find
might be there
to change your mind.
Many hurdles
help us grow
as God shows us
where to go.

Hehehe there ya go. I hope that poem made sense
to ya. Also I hope my rambling didn’t bore you to
tears 🙂 I haven’t much else to tell you other than
my good friend Donald/Tiny is still in a bad way
needing prayers. I guess you’re wondering why I
call him Tiny huh. We met back in the late 70’s
at a nightclub I was playing at. He came in saying
“I ain’t got no money”. When I looked up to see
this giant standing there I said no trouble, come
on in hehehe. He was 6’11”. Although I’m sure
that he has shriveled quite a bit since those days.
His nickname is Tiny for some obvious delusion 🙂
He’s 85 years old now. I sure wish I lived closer
so I could see him and talk to him. He’s a great
guy. His girlfriend is a great gal and I thank God
for her. She’s taken good care of Tiny. He gave
me a lot of good wisdom back in the old days 🙂
He’s a very smart man. Anyways, there ya go.
Hey Tiny, you may not get a chance to read this,
but remember God is in control. I’ll try to call
you tomorrow. If I don’t get through then, I’ll
keep trying. Well, I need to cease my rambling
and tell you what I tell you every week and that
is, I wrote 10 more poems and 22 more haiku
for all of my haiku lovers out there. Nope no
Christmas poems this week LOL. So with that
said, I need to be searching for that old off
switch, but not before I wish you a most joyful
God filled week. Remember, Jesus loves you
and we do too. Now to find that off switch
that loves to try to elude me 🙂 Found it under
my pillow in the bedroom. Move it or lose it 🙂
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Winter’s Frost

Winter brings
a scenic view
found within
a sky of blue.
Cold of winter
brings a sight
with each day
and also night.
Winter’s shadows
come and go
some with rain
and some with snow.
Picture paintings
hang with care
with each winter
that we share.
Winter’s views
are found in frame
such as coldness
to attain.
Biting chills
from winter’s frost
bring the scenes
of breath exhaust.

Sometimes Thinking

A thought in time
can change what’s done
by preventing
what begun.
A simple thought
through waited scenes
could turn nightmares
into dreams.
Sometimes thinking
clearly through
can make better
times accrue.
Yet sometimes when
you are waiting
you might miss God’s
So let prayer
to guide you through
before you do
the things you do.
Let not hurry’s
drive you mad,
but don’t wait
until it’s bad.

Making Beaches

When the ocean
swells and breaks
it leaves times
it decorates.
Found within
the ocean blue
the scenic swells
come into view.
Wave after wave
the scenes display
how the ocean
does behave.
It brings waves
upon the shore
from what once
was ocean floor.
Making beaches
to transform
from the waves
each daily born.

Little Footprints

Snow is falling
now and then
here and there
sometime agin.
Snow is building
walls to see
paved real white
like history.
In the snowfall
there is paved
sight so slight
as winters crave.
There are footprints
in the snow
with the footsteps
where ones go.
Also seen
are little prints
found as signs
of kitty hints.
Little footprints
seen so slight
lead unto
the dark of night.
Then by morning
there agin
I see footprints
where it’s been.

I hear snowplows
coming going
all the while that
it is snowing.
They’re so noisy
passing by
I can hear them
do or die.
They start plowing
day and night
when the snow
comes into sight.
I can hear them
clearly now
on their missions
then to plow.
Dark of night
brings echoes hue
of the snowplows
plowing through.
Then as snow stops
they will cease
giving me then
sense of peace.

Nights Degree

Lights will glimmer
in the view
of the nights of
starry hue.
Pages folded
will be seen
as a nighttime
dream cuisine.
Light might flicker
when stars die
as they bid their
own goodbye.
Scenes will change
with night to day
as the stars all
fade away.
Lights will glimmer
soon to see
with the sight of
nights degree.

Snowy Dreams

The stage is set
for wintertime
painted with
a white design.
Scenes around me
are displayed
by the snow
that winter made.
The page has turned
to bitter cold
as the same
as days of old.
Cold winds blow
with brisk detail
as the snowflakes
all set sail.
The stage is found
with whitish scenes
such as winters
snowy dreams.

Telltale signs
of ones desire
might become
a fragranced fire.
of times accord
might just be
a minute stored.
Scenes remembered
as a phase
might just be some
fragranced days.
Found in moments
we remember
as a frangrance
burning ember.
Telltail odors
sweetish smell
fragrances then
might detail.

The Stargazers Journey

A journey through space
in a minds eye of time
the stargazers journey
might surely design.
Painted with colors
of starry night phase
the stargazers journey
might lead into days.
Staring at the stars
with his telescope
he looks for visions
with wishes and hope.
The stargazers journey
is one that is found
high in the sky
and not on the ground.
Scenes that he searches for
are painted hues
that are the stargazers
choices to choose.

Words found unspoken
often will say
wrongly the moments
they truly display.
So often meanings
of unspoken words
leave ones with troubles
as flocks of wild birds.
Unspoken minutes
that others might hear
can lead to troubles
then not so sincere.
Don’t let unspoken
to be all you say
just to avoid all
your troubles today.
Often just speaking
what truth needs be said
can make forgiveness
and not hate instead.
Yet there are moments
of unspoken views
that are much better
to leave out of news.

for Jan 20, 2012

Life has surprises
such as unfathomed moments
we never thought of.

Snow on the walkway
makes way for many footprints
telling who has come.

Flavors of morning
often bring memories alive
through shadows of time.

Below the radar
a person might fly freely
until they get caught.

Leaning on shovels
does not get anything prospered
except laziness.

People with watches
often focus on minutes
and not on right now.

Love is a doorway
opened with a mere heartbeat
begun by passion.

A minute of words
can create the truth or lies.
Listen real closely.

Thunder and lightning
speak loudly in the storm clouds
as raindrops might fall.

Temporary life
is our day to day journey
awaiting Heaven.

Finding a flower
brings us the signs of springtime
soon after winter.

The lunar nightlight
hangs in the sky of dreamers
along with the stars.

Sequential moments
come as seconds and hours
amounting to days.

Poor hearted people
need Jesus to fill the void
and enrich their lives.

A letter less book
has no words on its pages
to tell a story.

With blistering winds
can also be a blizzard
and whiteout of time.

Senseless worrying
gives ulcers a fighting chance.
Give worries to God.

Displaying anger
can cause ones to avoid you.
Don’t advertise it.

Yesterdays headlines
need not always be displayed
as today’s lifestyles.

Learning the right way
might come from a few wrong turns
displayed as turmoil.

Mirrors of today
are often our memories
found in the future.

The grandest of times
often live in our heartbeats
as what’s remembered.
