Find The Blessings


Hello my friends

It’s another day in paradise or whatever this is hehehe.
Another week has passed and Thanksgiving Day for the
USA is just around the corner. Yeppers, Christmas is
also getting closer with each passing day. It’s supposed
to start raining this evening on into tomorrow evening.
Right now it just looks like it could rain with cloudy skies
above and temperature of 43 F degrees. It might be a bit
warmer tomorrow with temperature of 54, but forecasts
for the rest of the week thereafter are predicted at the
mid 30’s to the mid 20’s by the end of the week for day
time temperatures LOL. Judy and I have bought 100
gallons of heating oil, but at the moment, the furnace
is not working, so we’re waiting for our landlord to fix it.
Until then, we’ll continue as we have using our trusty
radiator heaters in all of the house. I’ll turn the one in
the living room off when the furnace is operational again.
Yet, the temperatures have not been all that bad lately
and the electric radiator heaters are doing pretty well :).
It runs up the electric bill a bit, but it’s better than us
freezing and better yet, the water pipes freezing and
bursting. So, what’s happening around the Pearce’s
Place other than the weather LOL? I think Benny’s
upset that the snow is gone hehehe. I assured him it
will soon return and he will once again be a ball of snow
prancing about as a rabbit through a field of grass :).
I’ve gotta stay outside and play for Milo to want to
do anything in the snow, which is no problem, being
I love to play in the snow LOL. Next topic hehehehe.
Judy and I have been playing around with a program
called Bitstrip on Facebook. We’ve made all sorts of
little cartoons of ourselves and a few of our friends
and family. Judy and I can still find a few silly things
to keep us busy :). She just told me that she’s going
over her sister Trudy’s house tomorrow evening to
be with her mom so that Trudy and her hubby Dennis
can go out and celebrate a late birthday dinner for him.
So Judy will either take the boys with her or leave
them here with me, but it really don’t matter to me.
She said if she’s not home in time to watch the Voice
then for me to record it for her. No problem! Well,
it’s nice and quiet around here right now. I fixed Judy
and I some fried eggs, sausage and toast and fixed
the boys their dog food. I even fixed a couple extra
sausages for the boys :). They’re both lying in their
doggy beds in the floor right now between us. Milo
wanted more, but I said NO, Lie Down and he and
his little brother Benny crawled into their beds and
are now sawing logs LOL. This passed week, Judy
and I have been a tad under the weather and not
felt like doing much more than sleeping, but I’m
sure it’s all due to the weather changes. It’s also
making my arthritis to become almost unbearable,
but that’s life. The only thing I can take for it is
Aspirins and they only help a tad, but then cause
me more problems that I will not mention LOL.
Let’s just say, they involve the restroom hehehe!
None the less, I will continue being my old silly
self as long as I can breathe :). LOL, Milo’s doing
some snoring down there. If he keeps up like he is
he’ll have sawed enough lumber for a large city of
fireplaces LOL. I’ll do my best to try and block
out his snoring rhythm so I can write, but it’s not
gonna be easy hehehe. So, here I go! Judy and I
have almost finished our Christmas shopping, but
we have still one or two left to get gifts for. We
always like to start our Christmas shopping early
in the year. LOL I had to wake Milo up to stop his
snoring. It was getting too loud to ignore hehehe.
He gave me a grumpy look like, What now? LOL.
He just dropped back to sleep and I heard a small
zzzzzzz which I hope doesn’t turn into another large
LOL Too late, here we go again! Even with his
snoring, we love him. His little brother hasn’t
started snoring as much as him, Yet hehehehehe,
but he does snore. Benny and Milo were a gift
from God that we would not trade for. Even with
the snoring :). They love us unconditionally and
we totally love them. God loves us unconditionally,
but He asks for us to love Him back so that we
may be allowed in Heaven. I had to wake up the
boys and take them to the bedroom so that I can
think LOL. Judy went in there with them and
closed the door. She said to let her know when
I’m ready for her to come and help me edit this
mess :). Yep, this house is an eventful one with
the boys and their antics. While I was cooking
breakfast, Benny was sitting watching me and
then ever so often he would make a dash to the
computer room and back. Milo stayed in the
computer room with Judy, barking at the door,
because he wanted me to hurry hehehehehehe.
Thank You God for all that you have given us
and all that you have done. Even the bad times
have their special points of light that were true
blessings in disguise. Don’t let the sadness to
envelop you! Find the blessings that you have
maybe not been aware of and overlooked as
the days have passed. You might be surprised
at all you find. Let The Light of Jesus shine
within your heart and it will help you to expel
the darkness. Now since the snoring has been
taken to the other room hehehe, I guess it’s
time for me to be taking a little venture back
through all I’ve written to 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 found a decent title, but gotta see if I haven’t
already used it. Nope, so it’s good to go :).

Find The Blessings

Scenes of blunder
many find
when they look
within their mind.
Find the blessings
through the grey
and you’ll smile
and be OK.
Don’t let thunder,
lightning too
become all
you daily view.
See the rainbows
that come on
as the moments
move along.
Find the blessings
day and night
and you’ll surely
be alright.

There ya go! I hope it makes a little sense to you.
The boys must be awake, being I can’t hear Milo
snoring and believe you me, there’s no door that
can completely drown out that sound LOL. They
are probably watching TV with momma hehehehe.
Life at the Pearce’s Place hehehe! Well, it’s 6 PM
and pitch black outside. I guess I need to get this
finished so that I can get Judy in here to help me
edit this mess, 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 6 of them being Christmas
poems. I wrote 3 more poems the day after I
wrote these poems, but I’ll post them next week.
Also I wrote 22 haiku for all of my haiku lovers
out there. I hope you like a few of either or both.
Now I believe it’s about time for me to be finding
that off switch that loves to try and elude me :),
but not before I wish you a most wonderful God
filled week. Remember, Jesus loves you and
we do too. Now to find that ornery off switch.
LOL hiding in the saltshaker might of worked
if it had been full of salt and not been CLEAR.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy
(and yes of course Benny and Milo)

P.S. The first two poems I wrote the week before
and the first one is one I wrote about Facebook.
LOL it’s sort of silly :), but if you are one that
does Facebook, you’ll understand it.

Now on with the poems and haiku.

Facebook With Pokes

Friends find the minutes
connecting them to
a Facebook with pokes
from me then from you.
We’re watching that poking
to bring forth an array
of friendships from humor
in a Facebook display.
Poking bringing smiles
as I poke you back
we find the many minutes then
humorous fact.
So when you poke me
be prepared for a return
my poke back to you then
that you will discern.
A lifetime of friendship
can grow day to day
as a poke here and there
with not much to say.

Heavens Kiss

With glimmers of blue skies
and shadows of sun
the Heavens kiss sweetly
as new day’s begun.
The seasonal journeys
that seem to arrive
are as Heavens kiss
shows that it’s alive.
Pages as turnstiles
glimmer so brightly
the Heavens kiss found
daily and nightly.
The angles the views
that form as pure bliss
are seasonal stories
as Heavens kiss.
Then as the days grow
a pure sight is seen
as that of Heavens kiss
The blue skies I see now
glimmer with love
even through storm clouds
found up above.
Then within Heavens kiss
truly from God
I watch the days change
giving applaud.

As Morning Breaks

When night is done
with no mistakes
there is sun
as morning breaks.
Then the seasons
seen on cue
are the reasons
for the view.
As morning breaks
it shows design
what partakes
from Lord Divine.
Minutes pictures
many see
as the fixtures
given free.
Seasons patterns
open wide
some as Saturn’s
show outside.
visions found
as synoptic
from the ground.
Even sailors
seas and lakes
find much more
as morning breaks.

Scenes of Color

Picture painted postcards
of so long ago
display scenes of color
in the essence of snow.
Trees seen just glittering
within every sight
as the many scenes of color
display day and night.
The thoughts we remember
live on like no other
found as the visions
of many scenes of color.
Christmas with the family
that time does recall
are now scenes of color
with trees oh so tall.
Maybe a Christmas angel
or a star there on top
of the tree scenes of color
that never shall stop.
All of those memories
of the Christmastimes joy
become scenes of color
as a little girl or boy.

The Whitest Day

Looking through visions
of sights there and to
I can see snowflakes
so white and brand new.
With every second
that time moves along
I find that the snowflakes
are singing a song.
Then, as it gets closer
to great Christmastime
I find that the snow is
making a design.
Sometimes as snowmen
or snow angels too,
then sometimes tree limbs
that glitter in view.
The seasons show truly
the Christmas array
joyful so wonderful
the whitest day.

Dreamers of Snowflakes

With portions of hopeful
and portions of dream
a person can change what
maybe might seem.
Dreamers of snowflakes
can paint a field
bringing a Christmas view
timeframes can yield.
With each perception
of each dreamers day
rain can be snowflakes
the middle of May.
Dreaming of Christmas
and snowflakes attire
brings many dreamers
with hope to aspire.
Dreamers of snowflakes
can make now to be
inside their minds found
so Christmassy.
Picture painted morsels
of snowflakes design
dreamers of snowflakes
most surely can find.
Then if they continue
with faith that it’s true
the dreamers of snowflakes
can feel and see too.
Christmas of hopeful
that’s more than a dream
found as a blessings
glorious scene.

Searching Through

Sitting staring
searching through
times from now
and thereunto.
I see now my
shadows face
standing in
my last times place.
Watching waiting
searching through
my own design.
Winters snowless
days were found
then in Texas
times around.
Christmas snow was
only seen
when I slept
within my dream.
Searching through
I saw a place
found as blessings
Jesus Grace.
Now these days,
white snow I see
and God’s grace
still lives with me.
With the echoes
I remember
searching through
I find December.
Blessings of that
Christmas day
that live on
in every way.
Joyful moments
there and to
I now find while
searching through.

Meadows Shine

Seasons wonders
find their stand
as the meadows
turn so grand.
Snow of turnstiles
enters through
giving meadows
such a view.
Meadows shine
with that of white
snow from seasons
pure delight.
Winters threshold
comes December
as a burning
snowy ember.
Meadows shine
is found and laid
with a Christmas
Patterned gateways
hills and crest
meadows shine
their very best.
Christmas pictures
many take
of the meadows
wide awake.
Glistening snowflakes
far and wide
meadows shine their
seasons ride.

Angels of Snow

Rhythms of eras
seasonal shows
become the ventures
each time it snows.
Times we remember
winters before
might be the angels
of snow evermore.
December values
of Christmastimes hue
angels of snow then
comes into view.
Painted as pictures
out there to see
built by so many
like you and me.
Then as the snowflakes
fall from the sky
angels of snow then
might say goodbye.
Christmas snow beauty
becomes more to see
than just of some angels
of snow given free.
Christmas beginnings
seen snowy white
display the blessings
God did incite.
With His Son Jesus
He did truly so
wash away sins
with angels of snow.
White as a snowflake
our sins wash away
when we thank Jesus
for Christmas day.

The Days and Times

Finding a footprint
from some other days
might be a problem of
wrong other ways.
The days we seek for
and times we recall
might bring the journeys
with many pitfalls.
So many pathways
with bumpy days roads
might just be moments
with real heavy loads.
Taking on too much
as moments occur
might make your vision
of minutes a blur.
Sometimes a pathway
of waited designs
will make much better of
the days and times.

for Nov 11, 2013

Looking for footprints
within yesterdays mistakes
will display lessons.

A journey to now
takes a loosened grip on then
to allow today.

Wintertime’s windows
open up with some snowflakes
in New England Maine.

Now is just a time
that then does not belong to
so learn how to change.

Morning brings glimmers
of the dawning of sunshine
from beyond the trees.

Many flowers grow
knowing that they will soon die,
but they enjoy life.

Trees filled with white snow
glisten in mornings sunlight
as wintertime’s show.

Skies find their moments
as some clouds will cover them
painted with designs.

A searcher of truth
might find more than they wanted
and regret searching.

Links to a chain
as bicycle to sprocket
help us move forward.

Fragrances of snow
billow in Decembers air
with thoughts of Christmas.

Leafless trees of fall
find themselves with snow on them
making as some leaves.

A weeping willow
that finds itself in winter
soon weeps with snowflakes.

A single snowflake
becomes a large mound of snow
when joined by others.

Thoughts of summertime
become wintertime’s thinking
as many dream on.

Yesterdays insight
might become mere stupid thoughts
as we remember.

Bliss is a sight
that can be found from within
if you look deeply.

Another milestone
might gather from your mishaps
and make you stronger.

Looks are deceiving
as we assume we see true
what’s on the inside.

Morning times array
brings us new chances to choose
with our wrong or right.

Knowing yesterday
does not mean you know today,
for it might have changed.

Lifeless one might seem,
but alive they might just be,
but out of your sight.
