A Simple Prayer


Hello my friends

So, what’s up in your part of the world? I hope you
are doing well. For all of my friends and also the ones
that I do not know which went through the torment
of Hurricane Sandy, I send you my prayers. I wish we
could do something to help, but all we can do is pray.
Yet, prayers work miracles. Ok so it’s onwards with
the journal. It’s 41F degrees right now at 2:46 PM.
Oh yea, I hope you set your clocks back an hour last
night, because if ya didn’t, you’re gonna be late for
Church or anywhere else ya need to be hehehehehe.
It’s supposed to get down to 25F degrees tonight brrr.
Of course as wintertime gets closer to our doorsteps
it will most assuredly get much colder hehehehe and
along with tons of snow. So for right now, we’re still
considering it as fall LOL. Yea, I know, all of the
leaves fell off all the trees weeks ago, up here that
is LOL. Yes, fall might still be happening where you
are. It’s done up here. The only trees with leaves are
the evergreens hehehe. Our new pooch name Milo
is doing well. Him and Benny have become best buds
and look out for one another. We bought Milo an
electric fence collar like the one we have for Benny
and since we have tightened it down on his neck, it
works great. Before, it was a tad loose and he went
running over to the neighbors house, being he don’t
know the boundaries here yet. Benny sort of does,
but when he saw Milo running over there he went
to find him. That’s when we realized that Benny’s
collar was too loose also LOL. So we tightened his
up as well. Oh well, all’s well that ends well hehehe.
I didn’t get to write my poems yesterday due to all
of the goings on around here and was beginning to
think I wasn’t gonna be able to write them today
due to around 3 this morning having to go chase
down Milo and Benny from the neighbors house
which is also when I figured out that their collars
were too loose LOL. After Judy tightened them
we let them out again and heard a yelp hehehehe.
Benny found out that his collar was working agin.
I think Milo saw and learned from watching him,
but time will tell. They’re smarter that we think
they are hehehe. Milo knows how to shake hands,
speak and sit. Benny is learning from him, but
he had already understood the words sit and stay,
but doesn’t always abide by them LOL. They are
playing together just as we had hoped they would.
They are in the living room playing right now and
Judy is lying down in bed watching game shows 🙂
Yep, it’s a peaceful day today at the Pearce’s.
I have the PC room door closed so that Benny
and Milo can’t come in and bother me while I’m
trying to write/think. Tomorrow it’s supposed to
get a little colder than it is today. The high for
tomorrow is 38F and the low for tomorrow night
is 20F. Yeppers, it’s getting colder hehehehehe.
I thank God for keeping Judy and I from harms
path and also for giving us the blessings of these
two little boys, Benny and Milo. They have most
assuredly brought us much joy. I have to often
fight for covers hehehe being they are lying on
them, but other than that, it’s all good hehehe.
Thank you God for all of your blessings and all
that you will give. My prayer now goes out for
all of those stuck in torments path due to Sandy
and many other trials that have come your way.
Let’s remember all those that are less fortunate
than us and send them our prayers. Remember,
there is always someone worse off than you and
they might be all alone. Let them know that God
is always there through a simple prayer. Now I
guess it’s time for me to be taking my little trip
back through all that I’ve written here to see if
I can find a good word or phrase that might work
well for the title for today’s brand new poem.
So, it’s away I go to that place of my recollection
that I always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I believe I may have stumbled upon a good title,
but we shall see. Hmmmmm, it’s possible LOL.
Here goes………

A Simple Prayer

A time with struggles
said and done
can be strengthened
through God’s Son.
A simple prayer
through thick and thin
can give blessings
then to win.
Timeless torment
found on stage
a simple prayer
can turn the page.
Letting moments
pass you by
without giving
God a try
will be found with
not so fare,
so take time for
a simple prayer.

I know, it ain’t that great, but I hope you got the
meaning. So often many will allow the struggles
to overwhelm them and become sick with despair.
Don’t let it get the best of you. Give God a try
and let Him to help you with your day to day life.
I know, troubles still come, being we are human,
but they are at least not dealt with all alone. So,
I guess it’s time for me to be telling ya what I tell
ya every week and that is I wrote 10 more poems,
but this week with 4 of them being Christmassy.
Yeppers, I also wrote 22 more haiku for all of my
haiku lovers out there. Yes I wrote everything
TODAY again. That’s life! Hehehehe believe
it or not I wrote all of the poems and haiku in
about 2 hours. Judy’s still amazed at how I am
able to do that LOL. Even after being married
to me 11 years hehehe. It’s my gift from God.
Well I reckon it’s about time for me to begin
my search for that freaking off switch that
loves to elude me, but not before I wish you
a most blessed God filled week. Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too. Now to find
that off switch. Hmmmmmmmmm, I see ya
peeking out from under Benny’s doggie bed.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Words of Time

Things we’ve said
and thought to do
might reflect
upon our view.
Words of time
with every sight
need thought out
for wrong and right.
Often wording
of a phrase
will determine
future days.
Letting mouths
to take control
will in time
cost heavy toll.
So if anger
fills your mind
think it through
as words of time.
Let your anger
not to guide
how you view
mouth opened wide.

People Pray

While ones weary
seek for God,
others seek
a sad facade.
Day to day
with troubles seen
many try to
end pristine.
Yet I find
I am with peace
when I pray
for Gods release.
So if troubles
find you scared
take it to
Who’s always cared.
God is there
with love to give
to help us all
to better live.
For I’ve found
things day to day
better when
some people pray.

Errors Clouds

Morning comes
with shadows found
floating here
upon the ground.
Sights are seen
with many staged
found as journeys
quickly paged.
Time might show
a moments shrouds
that we think as
errors clouds.
Yet the errors
are not true,
for they show
unique the view.
They’re not errors
that they show.
They’re just painting
as they go.
Errors clouds
are found in mind
how we view
from time to time.

Glimmers of Christmas

Soon will be snowflakes
falling so free
daily as glimmers
of Christmas to see.
Soon every housetop
here to afar
will be as Christmas
seen from our car.
Glimmers of Christmas
find ways to show
when it begins to
seasonally snow.
December paintings
hung everywhere
will be as glimmers
of Christmastime prayer.
Scenes will be set up
so to remember
glimmers of Christmas
found in December.

With a Thought

Sounds and sights
that are entwined
might be found
within our mind.
Often doorways
that we’ve viewed
are just pages
With a thought
someone might seem
better than
the perfect dream.
Let the trueness
of a time
show what’s right
within design.
Don’t let wanna
take control
and make problems
to unfold.
With a thought
you can be true
finding what’s
the best for you.

Scenes of Christmas

Now as Christmas
comes in sight
I find things
I do delight.
Snowflakes falling
from the sky
here and now
from Adonai.
Scenes of Christmas
place to place
falling gently
with much grace.
Then as stories
are then told
scenes of Christmas
then unfold.
Christmas lights
all hung with care
are what’s seen
most everywhere.
Even mornings
suns reflection
shows the art
of snows collection.
On the hillsides
fluffy white
I look out
with much delight.
Scenes created
are what’s found
as Christmas view.

Closer To See

Now as the minutes
turn into hours
then into days
Christmas empowers.
Time ticks away
as minutes move on
Christmas remembered
dusk unto dawn.
Closer to see
are stages of time
as this great season
seems to unwind.
Seen as a snowflake
found as a dream
closer to Christmas
might surely seem.
Then as the moments
many have told
closer to see
will surely unfold.

Tomorrows Sight

Right now this moment
tomorrows sight
might seem to never
ever be right.
Yet with the ticking
of time that we see
tomorrows sight
will be what will be.
Let now this moment
to be what you view
and let tomorrow
to be best to do.
By doing your best now
here now today
tomorrows sight
will be OK.
Seen from illusions
fantasy trail
tomorrows sight
can seem like pure Hell.
Yet tomorrow
is not here and now,
so make today
the best to endow.

Painted Seasons

Winters threshold
finds a way
painted seasons
day to day.
Concepts of winter
many will view
as just a time
wished to be through.
Painted seasons
found as snow
I see beauty
to and fro.
I look daily
search to see
painted seasons
given free.
Seasons threshold
opens wide
when in time
it must reside.
Painted seasons
to and fro
display as
my Christmas snow.

Links In A Chain

The links of time
connect us to
here and now
with every view.
Time might be found
as seeming insane
but be our own
links in a chain.
Temporal moments
time and agin
are as reflections
where we have been.
Found as portholes
here and now
time might display
when and how.
So if you daily
always complain
remember your life
is links in a chain.

for Nov 4, 2012

When you’re with worry
let your praying to begin
and find then some peace.

Many words we’ve said
can come back as haunting ghost
if we’re not careful.

Remember moments
as not just mere good and bad,
but as our lessons.

Wintertime’s doorways
open as time does provide
and brings scenery.

Holding to sadness
will guarantee more sadness,
so learn to let go.

Flowers hibernate
as wintertime comes with snow
and covers them up.

Pebbles of a beach
gather to make their display
for many to see.

Believing in God
brings chances for a blessing
given through Jesus.

Answers are displayed
when road blocks hinder our route
and make us change course.

Pointing at others
does not lose the fact of you
and all of your flaws.

Synonyms of love
are that of Jesus and God
as One of the same.

Yesterdays shadows
can still be seen in now today,
so make them your best.

A rose of springtime
loses all of its petals
as fall comes to be.

Simplistic lifestyles
have no room for what’s costly
in the simple life.

A barrage anger
can unfold many heartaches,
so don’t lose control.

Moments are blessings
that we may not see clearly
until they have passed.

When seeking answers
let God help you out through prayer
and answers will come.

Some ghosts still reside
due to being unfulfilled
and needing answers.

Grieving over loss
needs to be done most surely
before moving on.

Lessons are painted
as many speed bumps of life
that many don’t see.

The curves of rivers
lead to its daily journey
and without a care.

Breaking the silence
can often put you on stage
when it’s not wanted.
