Let Not Your Soul


Hello my friends

How are you this great day? Hope you’re not having too many
problems. It’s a beautiful day outside up here at our place and
the weather is staying mild. Of course we’ve had some rain the
passed few days as usual LOL. The boys are doing well. We
took them for a ride down to the Amish store with us Friday and
they enjoyed that. We bought us some more watermelons and
a few knickknacks. We had fun browsing the store. They have
a lot of nice stuff. Judy bought some things for the kitchen and
I bought some hooks to hang up our battery operated hurricane
lantern when we have a storm that knocks out our electricity :).
My ankle is still messed up due to us taking Milo to the vet to
get checked for any ailment. He had been not looking good for
the passed few days. The doc said Milo is in good health. He
had a little blood in his urine, but said his kidneys are good
and she gave us some antibiotics to give him. He seems to
be feeling much better now. My ankle is still making it hard
to walk. Every step is painful, but I’ll survive LOL. I’ve
been through worse. I just couldn’t bear the thought of not
taking Milo to the vet to have him checked and then to have
him get sicker and die. I love our boys. We love our boys.
They mean more to me than a fractured ankle. So, what else
is going on around the Pearce’s Place? Hmmmm, not much!
It’s supposed to get warm again this week, or should I say
warm for us hehehe. The upper 70’s to lower 80’s with just
a couple of days in the upper 80’s Yet, that forecast might
fade from view as the days move ahead. The weatherman
is just forecasting/guessing ya know. Judy and I are getting
ready for a picture taking drive in the next few days. We
will take the boys with us so we can get them in the photos.
We haven’t decided on a date yet though. In the mean time
I’ll continue taking pictures of our little drives here and
there and our scenery outside our front door. I’m going to
go ahead and start hooking up and moving info to my new
PC sometime this week. I was going to wait, but I see no
reason to. I’m hoping it all works as I want it to. We shall
see huh! In the mean time life continues on with its bumps
and grinds of lessons of life. My mom said my sister is
doing OK or as well as to be expected with the loss of her
husband. Please keep her in your prayers. I would call,
but don’t know what to say that would help. She is also
a Christian and knows Christ, but losing your spouse and
best friend is still hard to handle. I love ya Peggy. Call
me if you need to talk. Ok so what else is there to talk
about? We’re waiting on our landlord to get over here
and fix our bathroom doorway floor. A few years ago our
hot water heater started leaking and made the floor real
soggy and has weakened it causing it to be too dangerous
to walk on. He came a number of weeks ago and put a
few boards down to walk on, but so far I have hurt my
ankle much worse by catching my ankle on the edge of
the boards. He needs to put a new partial floor down
with braces underneath. I am unable to do it besides the
fact that he is responsible for repairing it. He said he
might be over some time this week to fix it. That will
be great. Judy and I are both tired of having to do the
obstacle course just to go to the bathroom LOL. I hear
the jingling jangling of dog collars coming this way LOL.
It was just Benny coming in to say hello. Milo was on
the bed, but he heard me mention his name when I asked
Judy where he was hehehe. He’s now lying down behind
me on the floor. Benny is lying in one of the doggy beds
beside me. I’m surrounded LOL! We thank God every
day for these little blessings that bark. Benny is our lil
overactive doorbell. He even barks if the neighbors have
company hehehehe. We love him anyways! Benny just
left the room to go and guard the living room 🙂 He feels
that it’s his job LOL. Nobody will get past his point of
sight or hearing hehehehe. Our home has most surely
been blessed. God is always there with answers. Yes,
we will go through some troublesome turnstiles, but
we will be OK. We become stronger through the pain.
We try not to egg on more problems, but being human
we will from time to time. Life is a journey of mishaps
that we can sometimes see turn into good things if we
will look for the lessons. Milo has gone back to our
bedroom to lie on our bed :). I just went and turned on
the fan for him to keep him cool hehehe. Benny is in
one of his favorite spots in the living room :). He has
many! These boys never cease to amaze us with all
of their unconditional love. God is greater by far as
his unconditional love goes far beyond our household.
Yet, even if He loves you, it does not guarantee you
a place in Heaven. You must love HIM and His Son
Jesus Christ. Let not your soul to fall prey to the ill
will of Satan and his lies. That will only lead you to
a path in Hell. Seek for the goodness that God’s Will
provides. Look passed the losses and see the gains.
Now I believe it’s time for me to take a little look see
back through all that I have written here to see if I
can find a good word or phrase in something I said
to use as the title for today’s brand new poem hehehe.
So it’s away I go to that place of my recollection that
I always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE. It looks
like I may have found a good title, but I’ve gotta make
sure I haven’t already used it LOL. Used it! Trying
another! BINGO, found one. Now for the poem 🙂
Hope I can put something together using it LOL!

Let Not Your Soul

Don’t let your vision
to fall prey to lies
while you are seeking
your what’s and your why’s.
Let not your soul
find mindless portrayed
through all the moments
your minutes have made.
Seek for the blessings
through Lord God above
and don’t let Satan
be your push and shove.
Find your tomorrows
through now and today
as you take time to
kneel down and pray.
Don’t let your greediness
become your strive
and don’t let others to
change how you drive.
Let not your soul to
find only pain.
Seek for God’s blessings
as your daily gain.

Well, there ya go! I hope ya liked it. Also, I hope that you
enjoyed my rambling. I might tend to drift from one topic to
another, but I’m sure it at least kept ya entertained hehehe.
It’s 75 F degrees right now at 3:00 PM. Not too awful bad.
I’ve got the dehumidifier going to pull the humidity out of
the air. It be rather humid up this way hehehe. Yet with the
AC on dehumidifier mode, it makes it rather cold in here.
Oh well, it’s all good LOL! Judy’s waiting on me to finish
so she can read it with me to look for typo’s 🙂 It helps to
have 2 sets of eyes especially when one set is sort of blind.
I’m sure we’ll miss a few as were missed last week, but
nobody said I was perfect hehehehe and if they did, they
meant a perfect something else LOL. Milo just snuck
back in here. He’s right back in the floor behind me LOL.
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. Yeppers, 10 more poems with 4 of them this
time being Christmassy. Also once again I wrote 22 more
haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there. I hope that you
find a few of either that you like. I need you kneel in prayer
for a good friend of mine that has stage 4 cancer in his liver
and pancreas. He’s a good friend and I think of him as my
family. He asked not to mention his name, but God knows
who He is, so He will direct the prayers to him accordingly.
Now, I believe it’s time for me to begin my search for
that darned off switch that just loves to try and hide from
me, yet without much luck, but first I must wish you a
most joyful and God filled week. Remember, Jesus
loves you and we do too. Now, to find that off switch :).
LOL, I see ya you little varmint. If you’re gonna hide,
then stay hidden and quit peeking out to see if I can see
you LOL. Saw ya! Behind the little statue I got from
some of our old neighbors that says “I think you’re nice”.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Saturday’s Sun

The days roll peacefully
as time’s begun
found within middays
Saturday’s sun.
Every little sound heard
is that which I’ve found
deep in Saturday’s sun
each time around.
Minutes tick patiently
as time is done
while we are enjoying
Saturday’s sun.
It might be raining
or sun shining bright
but it somehow always
works out alright.
Saturday’s sun in motion
begins and shall end
sometimes in summertime
or winters wind.
So as the days pass by
I’ll try to have fun
when the weeks ended with
Saturday’s sun.

Links To Misfortune

Often our journeys
find times of discord
when we are watching
and climbing aboard.
Links to misfortune
are often our ways
found in so many times
upcoming days.
Sometimes they’re journeys
much better not done
found at the end of
our times having fun.
So many people
become as a trail
to times misfortunes
of moments set sail.
Stupid little things
that many will do
become as the links to
misfortunes view.

Heaven is Found

When time is come to
our withered release
Heaven is found then
with it’s pleasant peace.
So as our minutes find
time then at end
Heaven is found then
as a true friend.
Then when in Heaven
our time will stand still
with all the blessings
Lord God does fulfill.
We will see loved ones
that went there before
as we walk through that
Heavenly door.
Peace will be displayed
for us each to see,
as Heaven is found then
for you and for me.

Lands of Confusion

The stormy skies
of troubled scenes
can become as
running streams.
Lands of confusion
that we find
sometimes live
inside our mind.
Those biggest lands
that troubles see
are just sometimes
you and me.
Lands of confusion
times display
might just be
our sights array.
Let your vision
see more clear
all God’s blessings
so sincere.
Don’t let mind warp
build illusion
making up lands
of confusion.

Choices In Time

We find the pages
we turned to and found
sometimes as choices
with sinking ground.
Our choices in time
so many don’t see
as what we’ve chosen
to be what will be.
The choices in time
that we answer to
often are Wither Ville’s
times we accrue.
Lessons from choices
that we found and framed
are sometimes moments
we’ve surely named.
Named as stupidity
what we did find
from all our many
choices in time.

Christmas of Then

Pouring of blessings
our time did begin
with what’s remembered of
Christmas of then.
Scenes found a glowing
with love deep inside
displaying Christmas
with arms opened wide.
Patterns were starting
with lights all aglow
and in some places
with scenes white as snow.
All of my family
took time to enjoy
love for the season
and not just a toy.
Songs sung so sweetly
in our family
the Christmas of then
is in my memory.

The Season of Blessings

Found in December
is sometimes white snow
the season of blessings
with Santa’s HoHo.
Even the store fronts
will glisten of sights
the season of blessings
with bright colored lights.
Music then playing
as we drive along
the season of blessings
while singing a song.
Christmastimes wonders
are what many hear
within this season
that’s so full of cheer.
The season of blessings
with love in the air
fills up so many
with true love and care.
While it’s beginning
the season rings true
all of the magic
from Jesus to you.

In Desperation

Times so turbulent
in desperation
many will find their
own devastation.
Lead by their hurry
of now and agin
in desperation
the pain will begin.
Let not your hurry
for inpatient views
lead you to troubles
of melted down shoes.
Find you some peaceful
in now and today,
then desperation
might just fade away.
Do what’s important
with lessened your hurry
and you might find then
lesser your worry.
Do your very best
with what that you do
then desperation
might fade from your view.

Portraits Hung

Snowy portraits
on the wall
hang there daily
spring to fall.
Then December
brings some more
snowy portraits
to adore.
Portraits hung
with great delight
that which brighten
every night.
Portraits hung
of me and you
on our wall
a Christmas view.
Seasons glimmer
songs we’ve sung
are in portraits
that we’ve hung.
On our Facebook
wall of time
are the portraits
yours and mine.

Soon Will Come

Now the stages
pages read
soon will come as
done and said.
Soon will come
and time will show
here and there
with maybe snow.
Soon the seasons
reason true
will be heightened
there and to.
Many minutes
in it seen
will become a
Christmas dream.
Soon will come
some true designs
found as blessings
time to times.
Maybe even
reasons will
be on seasons
Joyful stages
ages show
might be heartfelt
to and fro.
True love displayed
made from love
come from Lord God
up above.

for Aug 17, 2013

Today brings a choice
to repeat your yesterdays
or to change your mind.

Summertime’s showers
bring life to the surroundings
while sometimes drowning.

Bittersweet moments
live in a life full of time
filled with many thorns.

Many views of love
are descriptive of desire
that ones misconceive.

Naming a flower
does not make it what it is,
for it’s just a name.

Wintertime returns
after summer brings us fall
to prepare for it.

The weathered doorways
that our seasons will walk through
will leave their own view.

Life is a motion
begun by a mere action
that many don’t see.

Showers of sunshine
come radiating to Earth
as blessing from God.

Lines found on a face
might be there due to sadness
or maybe laughter.

Doing a good deed
can make your heart to blossom
if you do it free.

Ones own perspective
can corrupt another’s view
if it is allowed.

Each days surroundings
are found with things never seen
as we look around.

Flavors of dewdrops
within a flowers taste buds
might be as cherry.

While winds of time blow
there are things that never move
while holding tightly.

Upon a rivers edge
shows desires across the way
that might seduce you.

In a swimming pool
holds the clearness of waters
that might seem shallow.

Footprints in the sand
will wash away in the waves
as the tide rolls in.

Leaves will die and fall
leaving beautiful colors
to describe autumn.

Playing with fire
might cause you your own demise
as it catches wind.

The storms of life
often come with some rainbows
that we cannot see.

Viewing a forest
can become as some burdens,
because of the trees.
