Drift Away


Hello my friends

I hope you have been having a nice summer. It’s been a nice
one up here. I called up dish and they sent a guy to adjust our
satellite dish. Now our signals are coming in much better and
not losing our signal all of the time when it sprinkles or a few
clouds pass by LOL. The weather has been pretty nice lately.
Right now it’s partly cloudy and 78 F degrees at 4:30 in the
afternoon. Yep. not bad. It’s supposed to stay in the 70’s for
the next 10 days or at least that’s in the forecast LOL. Then
it shows at the end of that 10 days to get in the upper 60’s so
Mr. Summer isn’t doing us too dirty hehehe. Yea, I have many
weather programs on my computer that I use. I compare notes
on them all and round it out LOL. So what else is there to talk
about? Well, the boys are doing great. It’s funny though that
neither of them likes to stay outside for long. I took let them
out yesterday and I went out to try and play with them and get
a few pictures, but the silly boys would not come down off the
porch hehehe. I had to finally act as though we were going for
a ride and open the back door of the car and that got them off
of the porch, but as I sat in the car seat in back I had trouble
keeping them out LOL. Benny kept trying to climb over me
to get inside hehehe. I got a few pictures of all that commotion.
They managed to get passed me and in the car and then it was
a struggle to get them out without having to go for a ride first.
Hehehehe they love to ride in the car with us. If we don’t
let them go with us, then the droopy faces are shown as they
mope into their crates LOL. If the weather is too warm or
cold, we cannot take them with us. Don’t want them to die
from heat exhaustion or freeze to death. Of course we most
times will take them with us during the winter unless we have
a lot of groceries to get and there is no room for them hehehe.
We love our boys and can tell that they love us. Right now
they are both lying down in the floor behind Judy and I and
enjoying the AC LOL. We love our portable air conditioner.
LOL Judy said it’s the best thing that I ever bought hehehe.
Of course she’s kind of fond of our radiator heaters too :).
Yeppers, we are doing OK, other than the aggravation from
this computer, but if I ever get enough money, I will send
my other PC to Ron and Mandy at Century Computer in
Texas and have them take a look at it. Hopefully I can do
that soon. Yet, for now I’m managing to do my stationery
and send my emails using Judy’s PC. It’s a lot of trouble,
but it works. If I ever lose that option or do not manage to
get my other PC fixed, then I guess my emails will come to
an end being darned Windows 8 with its Windows Live email
will not let me send my grouped email. Oh well, until that
day comes, ENJOY :). It’s still 78 F degrees at 5 PM and
Milo is still lying behind me on the floor, but Benny has left
the room. I guess he’s gone to his favorite recliner in the
living room. He’ll be back hehehe. LOL hey guess what?
While I was writing, the temperature dropped to 77 degrees.
Judy and I have started an exercise regimen using a video
that she bought that is for senior citizens. We’ve been doing
the exercises in the living room being there is more room in
there. My body hurts for all of the ankle and leg work as
well as the shoulder being my body has gone through Hell
and back LOL. My ankles are still swollen and my hip
and shoulder are still messed up from my many falls and
all, so yeppers, it do hurt, but I’m not giving up. Judy and
I are wanting to lose some weight and maybe even get in
a little better condition. Hopefully as time goes, we will!
OK, so Benny just strolled back in from the living room
and is back in the floor behind Judy and I in front of the AC.
I think it might be a little warm in the living room due to the
sunshine shining through the windows hehehe. The windows
are opened in there, but sometimes that don’t help a lot ;).
Though by late evening it begins cooling down quite nice.
There isn’t much on TV tonight to watch, so we might just
goof around with Farm Town on Facebook or something.
Ice Road Truckers comes on at 10 PM, but that’s about
it on our favorites 🙂 We’ve seen all of the other programs
that we normally watch. Milo has moved to right beneath
my feet and is now laying stretched out LOL. He looks
comfy hehehe. Wish I could say the same about me LOL.
He took away my leg room ;). OK so he got up and is now
hovering around my legs wanting me to pet him hehehehe.
There, I petted ya, now go lie in your bed. He’s started
pawing at the treat bag. I gave the bag to Judy and said
please give them a few so they will maybe let me finish this
journal before I die LOL. Ok so here we go hopefully with
no more boys a wanting hehehe. The Pearce’s Place has
most surely been blest with love. Judy’s mom has moved
in with her sister Trudy for a while until the nursing homes
can find an opening. I hope it doesn’t take too long, but
for the moment it will work. Judy’s sister and Dennis are
going to try their best to fix up their house to be better
accessible to her mom with railings down the hall and many
other things. Keep them in your prayers. Judy’s mom is
not in good health, but cannot live in the house any more
that she has lived in for so many years. Thankfully she
has family to help her out :). God is always in control of
everything, whether we believe it or not. Some instances
are made to wake up others, and many are allowed because
good things will be transpired. Yes sometimes we must fall
into bad times to make us look up and pray or to become
thankful for the smaller things. Many will blame Satan for
way too much, giving him credit for things that are just of
our own self will. God gave us freedom to choose our paths
in life and learn what we must. Yet of course many will
open doors that were never meant to be opened and fall
prey to their own journey. Of course God is always there
with His many angels to give help when it is needed, but
often ones will drift away so far, that the only way for a
resolve is death. I’ve heard of and seen many that have
attacked others with weapons and killed others and made
their own pathway to Hell. Yet those deaths are not in
vain, for they are new angels born so there is a gain within
Heaven. We can still talk to our loved ones and they can
hear us. We might not know that they are watching over
us, but they are. Thank God for the angels that have
come to help us when we’re weak and to be our guides.
Now I believe it’s time once again for me to begin my little
search through all that I have written or should I say 🙂
typed and see if I can find me a good word or phrase that
I can use 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. I think I might of stumbled
upon a good title, but yet the proof is in the pudding or
so they say LOL. So, here goes nothing!

Drift Away

When you’re with worries
of now and agin
just drift away
to a time better been.
Let not your problems
to be all you see.
Just drift away
in a prayer given free.
Find all the blessings
that God gave today
and take a breath now
and just drift away.
Seek for the moments
that you might of missed
and drift away
to an angels assist.
If now your pathways
have now just a frown
just drift away
to a much better found.
Seek for a big smile
from so long ago
as you drift away
to something you know.
Let not your memories
fill full of sadness.
Drift away now
to a heart full of gladness.
Drift away surely
to a much better place
filled full of blessings
and also God’s Grace.

Ok so I guess I over killed on the rambling a little huh hehe.
Oh well, I gave ya something to read. Anyways, I hope you
enjoyed my poem. Hopefully it made at least a little sense to
ya. It makes sense to me. It’s the way that I think hehehehe.
Yes of course I’m sure many of you think I have a weird way
of thinking LOL. Oh well, it’s me! So Milo has finally made
his rounds and is now once again lying at my feet or should I
say right beside me using my chair leg as a pillow LOL making
it hard to move. I’m afraid I will roll over him hehehehehehe.
Well, at least I’m almost done writing. The temperature has
dropped again and it’s now 75 F degrees at 6:00 PM. Yeppers,
it’s cooling down pretty quick. So, I reckon 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. I said last week that I might write
a few Christmas poems and so I did hehehe. I wrote once agin
10 poems and 3 of them are Christmas poems :). Also once
agin I wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there.
I hope you find one or two or either or both that make you
smile or help you think. Now I believe it’s time for me to be
searching for that confounded off switch, but not before I wish
you a most wonderful God filled week. Remember, Jesus
loves you and we do too. Now to find that off switch that loves
to play hide and seek in the worst way LOL. Ya picked a good
spot this week being Milo hasn’t stayed in one spot for long
today. Yet lying on his back (on top of his hair) is not too
great being as I look down, that is all I can freaking see LOL.
Hello, gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Christmas in July

The summers weather
daily way
makes me think of
Christmas day.
So many things
I see and hear
make me seek for
Christmas cheer.
The seasons foothold.s
yet to come
here in summertime’s
July sun.
Soon the snow will
float on down
and then cover
up the ground.
Yet those dreams that
snowflakes fly
are just Christmas
in July.

When Summer’s Gone

As the minutes tick by
and moments are seen
the stages are set
for the greatest to dream.
Summertime wishing
for things better done
often becomes a
new setting sun.
When summers gone
and fall has arrived
Christmas is surely
much better derived.
Some might see snowflakes
and some may not see,
but Christmastime is still
for you and for me.
So during summertime
let your heart to dream
while seeking blessings
of Christmas soon seen.

When Time is Done

Often our thinking
is not very great
when we think we have
another great date.
Time might be ending
as now falls away
and when time is done
there’s no time to pray.
So with that thinking
let now be your stride
as you let Jesus
to come then inside.
Let not your chances
to fade from your view
and become what all
you wished then to do.
When time is done
your chance is no more
for to let Jesus
to walk in your door

I’m Often Found

While I am looking
up at the sky
I’m often found
just asking God why.
Why is the sky blue
and clouds fluffy white?
Why is there only
starlight at night?
Why does the moon
sometimes look so big
and on some others
look just like a twig?
I’m often found
looking out at the day
while I am asking
God how and which way.
Why are the blossoms
of flowers that grow
closed up at nightfall
I just wanna know?
I often see shadows
of things day and night
and I’m often found
asking what makes each sight.
What makes the morning
so wonderfully fine?
I guess it’s the dawning
of the new days sunshine.

Long Ago

Finding a moment
of times long ago
sometimes becomes as
rivers that flow.
Fragments of turnstiles
long ago finds
becomes as ventures
to greatest of times.
Long ago stages
set up to see
now are the journals
of our history.
Christmastimes essence
seems black and white
while long ago
displays every sight.
All of those pictures
that our mind displays
bring us to long ago
thens Christmas days.
Scenes with tree lights
hung up to glow
sometimes with blessings
with white Christmas snow.
My long ago
that I now remember
is of the greatest
found in December.
Those Christmas nights
I sat wide awake
awaiting for Santa
there’s no mistake.
I nodded off then
after a while
sleeping there softly
with my Christmas smile.
Soon morning came
and then under the tree
there were some presents
from Santa to me.
Now as the minutes
and hours have passed,
my long ago
is what that shall last.
Those great memories
of times gone by
are long ago
I shall not deny.
They live within me
still now each day
and they will never
ever go away.

That Big Round Moon

The night of nights
that comes in tune
sometimes shows
that big round moon.
It glows so greatly
in the night
sometimes seeming
like sunlight.
That big round moon
that I now see
often displays
patterns free.
Through the clouds
as they float by
that big round moon
is still so high.
It seems to shimmer
shining through
the clouds at night
a wondrous hue.
It brings a smile
for me to find
that big round moon
of time to time.
The dark of night
has nothing to fear,
for that moon
is always near.
It might be shining
while you’re having
light of day,
but it’ll be there
then to swoon
as it shines
that big round moon.

Quiet Storms

So many troubles
of ones each day
might be storms
of a quiet array.
You might not see
those storms inside,
for they’re hidden
and denied.
Many quiet storms
live and breathe
as we may not
then perceive.
So sometimes ones
might seem great
and their lives be
wished abate.
Quiet storms live
on down the road
and they might
one day explode.
Learn to let God
ease your storm
and He’ll help you
to reform.
Peace will come
as moments pass
and those quiet storms
will not last.

A Little Dream

A simple thought
that sleep acquired
becomes dreams
of hope transpired.
A little dream
that comes to be
in my mind
shows great to see.
Sights of things
within my dreams
might become
as rushing streams.
Splashing waters
in my sight
a little dream
becomes at night.
The simple portions
painted true
a little dream
gives me to view.
Through the night
a dreamful way
shows me wonders
light of day.
Then with the end
of oceans dory
a little dream
will end the story.

Promise of Angels

When God sees troubles
He sends us a prayer
the promise of angels
with His love and care.
That very promise
is one that ones lose
when they get lost in
their choices they choose.
Yet still God often
sends angels down
to help out someone
that’s donning a frown.
The promise of angels
to watch and to pray
often is what that
helps us each day.
Yet many people
get lost in their world,
not letting Lord God
with angels unfurled.
Let not the angels
to just watch you die.
Pray for their guidance
through Lord God on High.

Scenes in the water
that froze there so well
might be as crystals
in every detail.
Crystals that form from
the water that ran
often become as
someone’s piece of land.
Maybe a glacier
or iceberg to see
as many crystals
are found then at sea.
Crystals of ice
can also fall down
as that of hail stones
found on the ground.
So many crystals
can become our view
as they all sparkle
a wonderful hue.
Maybe icicles
that hang down below
or maybe snowflakes
within mounds of snow.
Crystals will glisten
as sunlight is found
sometimes as magic
God gave to astound.
Sometimes the crystals
will sparkle so bright
that it is seeming
they’re making the light.

for July 27, 2013

Within a dreamer
is the hope for tomorrow
if the dreams are good.

Tomorrows verdict
comes from our minutes today
either good or bad.

The sounds of a drum
beat as rhythms within words
if you will listen.

A troubled person
might stand now right before you
and you not know it.

When a shadow fades
it leaves no trace of itself,
but a memory.

The sight of morning
brings new choices you can choose
as seconds tick on.

As a flower blooms
it prepares for it to die
yet to thrive again.

As many will walk
there are many that cannot
that we’re unaware.

With seasons changes
are the magnificent views
that are there to see.

While a person swims
they might fall prey to the waves
that can fill their lungs.

When a person lies
they lose a part of themselves
that many trusted.

Windows we view from
might not show the honest truth
because they’re rose colored.

When making a friend
don’t start with a deception
of reality.

While you might be right
it might be best not to brag
and just keep quiet.

The seams of your life
are the pathways you follow
that join together.

When in a bad storm
step away for a moment
and kneel down and pray.

A scented rose bud
makes itself a bees target
to steal its nectar.

Without a morning
there is no chance for changes
for evening to find.

Harvesting dewdrops
is the conquest of flowers
to help them to bloom.

Right now is a time
that won’t come around again
so make good of it.

Learning from stupid
brings a most dismal outcome
that needs not repeat.

Our paths might connect
in some unfortunate times
so don’t be stupid.
