There With A Prayer


Hello once again my friends

What’s been happening in your world? It’s been doing a lot of raining
up here lately, yet snow is on its way. My PC weather program is saying
that it could possibly snow a tad Tuesday along with rain. It looks like
winter is coming in quickly. We did though have a beautiful fall that snuck
in through the rain hehehe. Yeppers it’s rained most of time up here most
every day or every other day LOL. I’m kind of looking forward to the first
snow, but I know after 6 months of it I will have grown tired of the white
stuff hehehe. Ok it’s time for the good news. You remember about Judy’s
place of business burning Sunday before last don’t you? Well,, Judy’s
boss called all the employees for a meeting at his house last Monday and
he has decided to pay all the employees 2 weeks vacation pay and he is
renting the old Governors restaurant so that they can start on Monday
the 12th (tomorrow) and clean it up for opening until the new Elm Tree is
built. So officially as of September 28th, Judy and all other employees
of the Elm Tree were on a 2 week vacation hehehehe. He is going to
pay them all what they were getting at the old Elm Tree. The Governors
will be just a temporary Elm Tree diner until the new Elm Tree Diner is
built. Yet Gary said that if the temp does good, he will keep them both
opened for business and just hire more employees to run it, but until
that day and time of decision, Judy and the rest will be working at the
old Governors turning temporary Elm Tree Diner. It is expected to be
opened for business in about a month or so if all goes well. It will take
a bit of time getting the Elm Tree diner rebuilt due to this that and the
other such as paper work as well as the weather, but it will be back in
business by next year I am sure :). So you see, God is looking out for
Judy and I. Judy is a little aggravated that she has to go back to work
now LOL, since she found out she was getting vacation pay hehehe.
We could of maybe done or gone somewhere if we’d known that :).
Oh well, she had a lot of time to rest and hehehe get lazy with two
weeks off. Back to the grind stone tomorrow for her. My world never
changes though LOL. I have been doing as always, laundry, cooking,
cleaning (ok not much cleaning lately hehe) and waiting on Judy as
I have always done. We have enjoyed this time together, yet it must
come to an end and back to the old routine. Yet Judy will be working
Monday through Friday until the diner is cleaned and ready for opening.
Then she will most likely go back to the weird schedule she had before.
It seems my world always looks the same. Oh well, I guess it could
be worse :). I’ve made a ton of new friends on Bebo, FaceBook and
MySpace lately as well as on Tagged. Never can have too many friends.
I always welcome new friends. There are so many people in the world
and we often think they are all kinds of different than us, yet they may
just speak another language. Our hearts are often the same. There
are many out there that are cruel, but in the same breath there are also
a lot of good people out there. I have met a ton of them. People that
wish to help us out without a price tag. People that you can count on
no matter what the problem is. Just to be there with a prayer is enough
for me. Hey hehehe I may have stumbled upon a new title for a poem,
but time will tell LOL. My mom sent me pictures of my Paw paw and
Grandmother the other day. I am so thrilled to finally have pictures
of them I can hang up. I love them both dearly. They were as second
parents to me for most of my growing up. Paw Paw taught me how to
ride a bike, drive a car, shoot a gun, yet he was wishing he had never
taken me hunting after him finding out I didn’t like to kill things and
I shooed away a rabbit he was aiming at to shoot and kill for dinner :).
Me and Paw paw used to fish the night away out on Lake Tawakanii
and for some reason I didn’t mind killing and cleaning fish LOL. I do
love fish ya know hehehehe. They taste great :). Grandmother taught
me how to cook, yet she said for me to taste and add until it taste right.
Paw paw passed away in 1989, hut Grandmother is still kicking at the
age of 102 LOL. I call her once in a while and we chat. To think of all
that she has seen in her life time is an amazement. I can look back on
my life and see all of the wonderful things I have enjoyed while being
with my family. God has been good to me. We many times will only
see the bad things until we step back and take a breath. Sometimes
we’re just too clouded by the moments to see the good that has been
done. Have you gotten lost in the sadness and lost track of the good
that God has done for you? If so, then take a step back from the
moments of now and look back at all that you have experienced.
They may have been fleeting moments, but the fact is, without them,
you would not be here. Thank God for the fleeting moments that
you’ve seen through time. Now I guess it’s time for me to begin my
little journey back through all I’ve written to search for a word or
a phrase to use for today’s brand new poem, so it’s away I go back
to that place of recollection. To that place of rememberance that
I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE, but is seems I may use what
I had stumbled on before. So here goes nothing, but I hope not :).

There With A Prayer

Scenes in a jumble
may be surmised
as a mere journey
of where’s, when’s a why’s.
Times we will travel
with mind also foot
and end with troubles
all covered with soot.
There with a prayer
ones come and behold
all of the blessings
that cannot be sold.
So many sequences
said and then done
were all the blessings
come from God’s Son.
So if you’re troubled
with times not so fair,
remember that God is
there with a prayer.

Well, there ya go! Hope ya liked the poem hehehe as well as all of my
rambling LOL. If ya didn’t then so be it hehehehehe. I can’t please
everybody. Ok so I guess I have said about all that is to be said in the
journal above, so I guess I need to be telling you about what I did not
mention and that is, I wrote some more poems and haikus. Yeppers
I also wrote a couple of wintry Christmas style poems also and along
with all that I also have 12 Yoville haiku to add with the 22 that I wrote
for here hehehe. So all in all I have once again 10 poems and 22 haiku
plus 12 hehe :). Ya got a lot to read huh. I can hear your thoughts as
I write saying how on Earth does this guy come up with all of these
poems and haiku!!!!? hehe. The answer is God gave me this gift and
mine is not to question why, but to use what He gave to me freely and
so I do. I hope you like a few of the poems and haikus. Now I must
be searching for that old off switch, but before I do that I must wish
you a most wonderful week. Remember Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now where’s that dag gum off switch hiding this week hehehehehe?
Found it!!! It was tangled in my snarled up uncombed hair LOL :).
See ya, CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S. I almost forgot, I also wrote a poem by request about a girl
named Roxanne which I found out later after I wrote the poem was
the lady’s daughter that passed away about 6 years ago. So I have
11 poems not 10 :).

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 +1 and 22 +12 ­čśë hehehe


This name seems to jingle
as rhythms of words
fluttering softly
as a flock of blue birds.
I’ve never seen her
and never bestowed
this little gal
as many words flowed.
Roxanne is a journey
of timeless portrayed
as one of many
I never have made.
I’ve heard this name
that was asked if I can
write a little poem
about this girl named Roxanne.

Our Hearing

Hearing unites us
to places we see
connecting our feelings
to what that will be.
Hearing though silenced
leaves feeling alone
to do what it can
with a moment of tone.
It’s the vibration
that balances view
connecting emotions
to then and anew.
Hearing unites us,
yet some has no sound
when it is muffled
by all there around.
That is when feeling
and sensing steps in
to do what our hearing
cannot then begin.

He Will Be There

Passing through phases
we sometimes will find
pages of timeframes
that seem with a sign.
Sometimes our journeys
will not be our best
as we go doing
our daily conquest.
People will see us
and maybe not know
that we’re just trying
to find where to go.
Passing through phases
we sometimes will fall
as we each stumble
through times weary hall.
God will be with you
through phases you see
if you will try to
in His Son agree.
Surely you’ll falter
with efforts of time,
but He will be there
to strengthen your mind.

Winter’s Running

Winter is running
with feet in the wind
in a big hurry
for it to begin.
Fall colors shining
are now day to day,
but soon the wind will
blow them away.
Right now the colors
are crisp shining true
as many leaves
are a colorful hue.
Red yellow auburn
with a little mixed green
seems to enhance
each beautiful scene.
Yet winter’s running
and coming real fast
with its own display
of shadows to cast.

They May Think

In many sections
are found me and you
there in the middle
what we really do.
In many pathways
ones don’t understand
as they will see us
in times of demand.
Laces of footwork
will fill up their sight
maybe with feelings
that are not quite right.
In many sections
are found to and fro
you and I daily
with what that we know.
Yet there are many
that look in despair,
while they may think that
we just do not care.

They Are Needed

Stairs to tomorrow
are footprints each day
gathered by moments
of our will and way.
Many situations
will determine our view
and at the same time
decide what we do.
The stairs we’re climbing
might seem too high
yet they are needed
to get us each by.
Times in each sequence
are flavorful found
given in context
of all there around.
Sometimes the flavors
are bitter by taste
yet they are needed
to lessen the waste.

Christmas and Me

I can feel Christmastime
deep down inside
as it awakens
its joyful time ride.
I can feel the feeling
of the essence I know
of all the blessings
of Christmastime snow.
I can feel the moment
that’s coming to be
and it is Christmastime
for you and me.
I can feel happiness
growing December
as I can each day
sort of remember.
Blessings from childhoods
timeless design
I can remember
those times oh so fine.
Painted as pictures,
yet they’re reality
of what’s remembered
of Christmas and me.

When Time is Trouble

Hold tight your prayer
as time goes its way
and don’t forget
to take time to pray.
Let not the moments
to tear you into.
Kneel down to Jesus
and He will help you.
Hold tight to blessings
that come in a way,
such as the moments
that come day by day.
Minutes of burdens
will come time again,
but Jesus will be there
to help with the pain.
Hold tight your prayer
as time goes on by
and then remember
for you He did die.
When time is trouble
and painting your view
take time to pray
to The One who loves you.

Unwanted Times

Paved are the highways
leading nowhere,
yet many drive on
without a care.
These are the lifestyles
paved as a road
highways to nowhere
times heavy load.
Paved as a venture
journeyed to see
time is the picture
and it’s you and me.
Paved are mind games
leading no place
but to a moments
sad weary face.
So many highways
journeyed so real,
many will try to
daily conceal.
Yet surely journeys
highways designs
will show in minutes
of unwanted times.

Make Peace Begin

Peace is a place
that so many seek
monthly, daily
week after week.
It is a concept
not understood
and many end up
bad over good.
Many seek peace
with versions they know,
yet they will often
be first to blow.
Peace is a place
which ones can arrive
by adding Jesus
to daily survive.
Letting the blessings
of God deep within
can in a way then
make peace begin.

Soon Is Awakened

Soon is awakened
with what’s ahead
words of the wonders
done and not said.
Soon is a blessing
briskly to find
painted as moments
awakened design.
Similar minutes
might of been true,
yet soon will be
a moment brand new.
Soon is awakened
thresholds desire
flavored with passions
time of entire.
Ticking are seconds
minutes and hours
to see what soon will
be what empowers.
Soon is awakened
with what’s ahead
with all the blessings
to daily embed.

for Oct 10, 2009

In a mere minute
time can flash from here to there
and leave you nowhere.

Lessons are follies
full of jumbles of timeframes
if in fact we learn.

Glancing at right now
tomorrow seems faraway,
but it gets closer.

Many will make lists
to use to reflect upon.
Others to forget.

Seeds that are planted
might blossom and bloom one day,
yet some may just die.

Links to a problem
are emotions deep within
affecting each day.

Handles on a door
are used to help you inside,
but also outside.

Ones will write letters
on paper they throw away
and sometimes with pain.

Clinging yesterdays
will be what that holds you back.
Let it go and grow.

Jumbles of outlooks
are mindsets in a whirlwind.
Search for common ground.

Hoping and waiting
will not make tomorrow come,
so deal with today.

Mind over matter
is a concept many try,
yet not always win.

Portions of thinking
are the thoughts not remembered
until when needed.

Leaving doors opened
can let in the wrong moments
so keep on your guard.

Clouds may be forming
and it may be getting dark,
but there are rainbows.

Learning a lesson
doesn’t always leave you smart.
Sometimes just learning.

Places that we go
are memories we’ll recall
when time moves ahead.

Sadness may loom you,
but soon happiness will come
when the sadness ends.

Look for a flower
and search for its uniqueness,
then look all around.

Torment engulfs us
when we forget to let go
and we just hang on.

Moving a mountain
takes a little bit a faith
as well as patience.

Snow will paint a hill
as a soft whitish pillow
to lay down and rest.

Yoville Haiku

Left is a factor
that many do not assimilate
in their right of way.

Sometimes illusion
makes it easier to view
what truth time has shown.

┬ęBy Bill Pearce

Time may be boring,
but it’s needed to get by
until next dawning.

Love is a moment
that many will try to find
without thinking clear.

Life is a journey
leading many directions
from here unto there.

One heartbeat beating
is all that’s ever needed
to do a good deed.

Fall colors changing
are the fingers of blessings
before winters view.

Beauty’s well painted
from sunshine to dark of night,
yet many don’t see.

┬ęBy Bill Pearce

Fingers as counted
are minutes between anger
and then cooling down.

Many see the pavement
as what that we’re walking on.
Others see where it leads.

Today may confuse,
but the time will become clear
with minutes ahead.

A rose is a rose
as a person’s a person.
Each has it’s own scent.
