The Small Stuff


Hello my friends

How was your Easter? Did you do anything special?
You know, like hunt Easter eggs hehehe. Judy and I
just stayed at home and enjoyed the God filled day that
He had given to us. We went outside and played with
Benny in the snow. Actually Benny did the playing LOL.
We just watched. My old body has been giving me heck
the last few days, but I guess that’s to be expected huh.
Judy and I still went out and played with Benny none
the less. He has barked 4 times now. Hehehehe Judy
let him back in this morning after she put him out to go
potty and when he came in. he was all excited. Judy
said, go find daddy and he barked twice and ran in to
find me LOL. He is so cute 🙂 So that adds up to four
barks in all that we’ve heard out of the little guy since
we got him a month ago. He loves to play with me in
the living room floor. He has all of his favorite toys
all strewn about in the living room LOL. Judy and
I love him as our own son. Hey I’m an animal lover.
What did ya think from a guy nick named ANIMAL?
Judy’s an animal lover as well which made us perfect
for little Benny. God had His Hands in us being united
with Benny. It’s perfection. Well onto anther topic.
Yesterday was a beautiful day and today is also. Right
now it’s 64F degrees. Tomorrow and Tuesday are
supposed to be in the mid 70’s. Yet after Tuesday it’s
supposed to get a little colder. The rest of the weeks
highs are supposed to be in the mid 50’s and 40’s F.
There’s no rain predicted for this week. That will
give Benny some good outside time. He’s gotten to
where he loves sitting in the balcony on top of his
doghouse. He also loves me to toss him things to
go fetch, but he hasn’t yet gotten the bring back
to me part down LOL. I’ve usually got to go and
get it back from him so I can toss it again hehehe.
Maybe he’ll grasp the idea one day 🙂 Until that
day arrives I’ll just keep doing what I’m doing 🙂
Judy put him outside a few minutes ago so he enjoy
the sunshine and play. There’s not much else new
from this part of the world. Either Wednesday or
Thursday Judy’s eldest daughter is coming down
from Caribou ME bringing Chance and Rylee. It
will be great seeing them. Rylee had a blast playing
with Benny the last time they came down. Chance
also spent a long while in the floor playing with him.
Oh yea, Farmtown has added some more levels
as well as another farm along with new facilities 🙂
Judy and I were at level 310 with 13 farms, but
now we’re both at level 335 with 14 farms hehehe.
Judy made her farm 14 a large lake with a beach’
all around and I made my farm 14 a large ocean
with an island in the middle. I put a train track
circling the island with a locomotive with some
passenger cars attached. It looks pretty cool.
Hey, we’re both disabled and retired so it gives
us something to entertain us that doesn’t cost an
arm and a leg hehehe. Judy just now put some
clothes on so she could go outside and play with
Benny. I’m trying to hurry and finish this so I
can join her hehe. So to get to the basics of our
lives, Judy and I have been blessed. We found
each other through God and God put Benny into
our lives. If you’re having hard times today, then
take a little step back and look to see a larger
view of the picture. Maybe you’re just focusing
on the small stuff. Let God show you a bigger
much more beautiful picture. Find the blessings
in a cloud floating over or the raindrops that
fall. Search through the leaves on the trees and
find the new tomorrows. Let Jesus live within
you as you seek only what He provides. Now
I believe it’s time for me to be taking my little
walk back through the minutes in time of which
I have written here and see if I can find a good
word or phrase that might work well for the
title of today’s brand new poem. So it’s away
I go to that place of my recollection that I like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I may
have stumbled upon a good title, but time will
only tell hehehe. Here goes…

The Small Stuff

In the minutes
of each day
many see
but only grey.
It’s the small stuff
many find
when they look
inside their mind.
Yet that small stuff
that they see
at that time might
largely be
things so big
that they can’t find
peace within
a time to time.
Don’t let small stuff
become large
and be all that
then takes charge.
See it clearly
then enough
and don’t sweat
today’s small stuff.
Let God help with
now today
and watch the small stuff
fade away.

So I guess that’s it. Not much else to tell ya about.
I hope you enjoyed my rambling and maybe even the
poem. I’m trying to hurry and finish this so I can go
outside with Judy and Benny. Judy came in a moment
ago to grab her camera hehehehehe. Benny was right
behind her 🙂 I’ll put a few pictures that we’ve taken
in the stationery so that those of you receiving this in
the stationery format can see what our world looks
like today. The snow has all melted away and the
grass is trying to start growing. Even a few leaves
on the trees have begun sprouting. Now if the next
few days don’t kill it hehe we should be seeing some
signs of a belated spring. Well, I guess it’s time for
me to be telling you what I tell you every week and
that is, I wrote some more poems and haiku. 10
more poems with one of them being Christmassy.
Also 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers out
there. Now with that said, I reckon it’s time for
me to be searching for that old off switch, but
not before I wish you a most wonderful and God
filled week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we
do too. Now to find that off switch. There it is
parked in front of the door just waiting to go
outside. Gotcha, see ya CLICK wheeeeeeeeee.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S. I also wrote a poem about Benny 🙂
It’s the last poem in the list hehehehe

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

Deepened Thoughts

Detailed minutes
found inlaid
often are
what seem to fade.
Seconds counted
time to time
sometimes detail
what we find.
With the scenic
minutes seen
some might fill
a submarine.
Deepened thoughts
of where we’ve been
detailed as
some out some in.
Often pages
that we read
turn to detailed
minutes seed.
Planted as
another day
as some detailed
fade away.

Find A Big Smile

When found in sadness
a smile can revive
if you will find ways
it can arrive.
Even if falsely
you’re smiling true,
maybe that smile then
will live in you.
Sadness will only
live if allowed
within a moment
you have endowed.
So do not let those
frowns on your face
become the only
thing in your space.
Let Jesus help you
to find a big smile
that will most surely
help in a while.

Christmas Flare

Smoke now billows
in the air
with each fireplace
Christmas flare.
The smell gives the
day a flavor
that which I will
always savor.
Daily beauty
page to page
as the billows
Christmas stage.
Though the weather
will change soon,
I’ll still be seen
as Christmas soon.
Each day searching
finding true,
Christmas blessings
in my view.
With each glimmer
that I see,
Christmastime will
be with me.
Living in each
sight and sound
for in my heart
it’s daily found.
Christmas pictures
I remember
are now as a
burning ember.
Christmas flare
with things I see
that will always
live in me.

Simple People

A simple person
with simple views
might be found
as simple news.
Yet those simple
people found
might be what
we each astound
as we wonder
simple things
how they live
with plated rings.
A simple person
only seeks
what they’re needing
in the weeks.
Simple people
that we find
only seek
their peace of mind.

Yesterdays Thought

The essence of now
is just but a view
sometimes just living
deep within you.
Sometimes the essence
of what we see
is but a moments
own history.
Counted as pages
filled up with words
now is an essence
sometimes obscured.
Not seen too clearly
each essence in time
might become only
an uncertain mind.
Seen through the clouds
of yesterdays thought
sometimes the essence
displays what not.
Filled up with lessons
as time goes its way
now gives us chances
to better today.

White Days of Time

Making some wishes
for some white snow
lives as the moments
of Santa’s HoHo.
Seeking for Christmas
through memories
as now I’m seeing
leaves on the trees.
Springtime’s upon us
so slowly it comes
as it beats rhythms
of seasonal drums.
The snow has all melted
leaving on cue
the change of each day
with a wonderful view.
Yet now I’m wishing
for white days of time
filled up with snowflakes
inside my mind.

Dished Up

Morning’s coming
hours fly
while the minutes
pass on by.
Mornings blessings
held in hand
are what Jesus
gives so grand.
With each shadows
passing day
times become
a different way.
Maybe likeness
sort of seen,
but each morning’s
God’s cuisine.
Dished up surely
oh so great
to become a
different date.

Flavored Dream

In the sunshine
I can feel
life with Jesus
oh so real.
Scenes around me
far and wide
display Jesus
deep inside.
In the tree limbs
that each blow
I can see Him
to and fro.
In the sunshine
I am filled
with what I can’t
keep concealed.
My face gleaming
in sunlight
shows ones truly
all that’s right.
Words not spoken
yet they’re seen
as a heartbeats
flavored dream.

Being Blessed

Night is ending
as day shines
with its daily
scenes designs.
Nightfall’s leaving
its own stage
with the turning
of a page.
Still the darkness
is displayed
as what God has
surely made.
Giving moments
time to rest
and find peace
in being blessed.
Night has left its
shadows cast
in the daylights
of the past.

Little Benny

I hear footsteps
in the night
with a jingle
I delight.
It’s our puppy
white and tan
as he prances
passed our fan.
He seeks only
so he comes for
us to see.
I hear footsteps
coming near
of this puppy
so sincere.
He’s our baby
thick and thin
with name Benny
or just Ben.
Little Benny’s
fast asleep
with just footsteps
dreaming feet.
He’s now running
jogging true
in his dreaming
sleepy view.

for Apr 15, 2012

Thoughts from yesterday
can make today good or bad.
It’s all how they’re used.

Today’s persuasions
often come in form of time,
due to impatience.

A little raindrop
becomes much more powerful
combined with others.

Today has a chance
while yesterday is long gone.
Learn from yesterday.

The fear of darkness
comes from all the unknown things
that we cannot see.

As today subsides
we will find nighttimes pictures
displayed as starlight.

Looking passed now
could find self will run amuck
with many worries.

Linking a flower
real tightly into springtime
could just confuse you.

The weather changes
while weathermen will attempt
to predict its view.

Guessing ones feelings
could leave you with only lies
that you had believed.

Having and holding
often brings about sadness
as wanna goes mad.

When seeing sunshine
you might be a bit misled
as storm clouds appear.

Keeping a friendship
needs a little bit of work
at being a friend.

Letters on paper
only spell out a few words
which might be just lies.

Lessons of flowers
are found as time moves along
through winter and spring.

Wisdom of ages
might be stupidity found
of which gave lessons.

With someone’s answers
could also be many questions
displayed throughout time.

Looking for the truth
could end in tons of heartache.
Try and be prepared.

Love from a puppy
has no room for resentment.
He loves without end.

Speaking of blessings
can often make them smaller
due to a big head.

Morning will begin
as nighttime passes from view
leaving us sunlight.

Right now this minute
is a blessing in disguise
that many do not see.
