Make That Journey


Hello my friends

I hope you have been doing well.  Judy and I have gotten
back into our daily lives.  Milo is feeling better now since
the trip to Texas.  He got sick at my moms house due to him
deciding to eat some of my moms grass.  He eats it every
once in a while up here,  but it must be a different texture.
I would prefer him not to eat grass,  but all dogs will do it
from time to time if they have a tummy ache,  bored or just
in a mood to irritate their owner LOL.  I do keep an eye on
him,  because dogs will often get worms from the grass,  so
we always keep tabs on how he is acting and eating. He
and his little brother Benny are enjoying the summertime.
I think Milo likes our new car better than our old Mazda,
but neither him or Benny are happy with how hard it is for
them to get in it LOL.  The car is quite a bit higher off of
the ground than our Mazda Protege was.  Milo has figured
out he can jump in the floorboard and then hop up to the
seat,  but Benny is still trying to jump up from the ground
to the seat and he succeeds every once in a while hehehe.
I’m hoping he learns from Milo how to get in.  Maybe in
time!  Well,  Judy and I just got back from town.  We went
to WalMart for some groceries and then to Subway to get
us each a foot long.  Neither of us felt like cooking hehehe.
The weather up here has been fairly nice.  Last Monday
there was a tornado that set down in Houlton,  but it was
only an EF 0 and it only messed up a few trees.  Nobody
was hurt.  We got a lot of freaking wind though out here
8 miles away in the boonies LOL.  I took a few pictures
of the storm clouds.  Right now it’s 73 F degrees.  There
was a frost warning for early this morning and a freeze
warning for Saturday morning.  I’m sure the farmers were
not happy about that.  Tomorrows high is supposed to be
around 79 F degrees,  but the temperature is supposed
to drop back down to the lower 70’s and mid 60’s for the
highs for the rest of the week.  You never know what the
weather is going to be like,  almost the same as many
places LOL.  Though we do know that when the snow
ceases falling it’s time for the rain hehehe.  At least now
we have a vehicle that is not so low to the ground with
tiny 13 inch wheels to combat the snow with :).  Yeppers,
this Rogue has 16 inch wheels and is much higher off of
the ground.  It makes it a lot easier for Judy and I to
get in and out of.   I guess it’s time for a different topic.
So,  what else is going on around the Pearce’s Place?
The neighbors we had behind us or should I say in front
of us have moved and now there is a vacancy.  Paul and
his wife and kids have lived there long before we moved
up here.  It’ll seem strange not seeing the kids driving
their four wheelers out in the field.  Oh well,  I hope that
some good neighbors move in.  We have 2 other neighbors,
but they’re not too social.  No matter,  we have each other
and Benny and Milo.  I spend much of my time looking
for scenery to take a picture of.  I will often do a little
jamming on my conga drums.  As a matter of fact I did
another little video of me on the conga drums May 29th
last Thursday.  I carried them outside to play amongst
the dandelions and I must say I was pretty much wasted
after hauling them outside LOL.  I had to sit down and
grab a breather before doing a video hehehe.  I did one
video before realizing that the recorder had not come on
and so I had to do a second video.  That literally wore
me out ;).  I had to rest a little bit before bringing my
conga drums and all back in the house.  I’m not as young
as I used to be hehehe.  I can still move pretty quickly
on the conga drums though,  even with my arthritis and
aching bones LOL.  Of course that’s the only part of me
that can move that fast and it’s much more limited on
how long I can play than when I was younger :).  Oh well,
I enjoy beating on them.  I thank God for giving me the
many abilities that He gave me and also someone to share
them with.  Judy and I both love to take pictures hehehe
especially of the boys.  We enjoy just sitting in the room
together while we do our thing.  Yet,  we do like many of
the same TV programs so that makes it easy for us to
find something to watch except of course when there is
nothing to watch out of 250 TV stations LOL.  In those
instances we will find something else to do such as
maybe browse the net,  Facebook,  etc.  We’re not that
exciting hehehe.  Benny and Milo keep us busy quite
often.  They’ll get in their moods of wanting attention
and will pester us until they get it hehehe.  That’s OK,
we love them both and spoil them totally hehehehehe.
God has been good to us and He continually sends His
angels to help us when we are in dire need of a helping
hand.  He lets us go through what we need to go through
so as to make us stronger in future days.  Life is filled
with many journeys some good and some bad,  but they
are all a part of our growing.  Learning what to and what
not to do as lessons are learned and past turns to present.
Don’t get mad at God when things happen.  Remember,
He sees the greater picture and we only see a portion
of it.   We lose many loved ones in the flesh,  but they
are not gone,  but are found in the spirit.  They can be
with you no matter where you are,  because they’re not
confined by a fleshly body anymore.  If you’re right
with God,  you will be seeing your loved ones again
when it’s time for you to make that journey,  but if
you look closely now,  you just might see a glimpse
of them in life that comes your way.  Let them echo
their love in your life day to day.  Now I guess I need
to cease my rambling and begin searching through
what all I’ve written here to see if I can find 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 little
place of my recollection that I always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I think I may have found a
good title and now after checking I see that it hasn’t
been used yet,  by me of course LOL.  So here goes!

Make That Journey

Ventured highways
far and wide
need Lord Jesus
deep inside.
Don’t be found as
all alone.
Make that journey
greater grown.
Let those highways
that you see
be as journeys
great to be.
Don’t let sadness
wear you down.
Make that journey
blessings found.
Search for goodness
far and wide
and then let it
to reside.
For our journeys
daily true
need us searching
me and you.
Find the essence
of God’s Grace
and make that journey
to enlace.

So,  did that make any sense to ya?  I never know if it is
just me that understands it LOL.  It’s getting dark outside
and that means I might need to catch myself before I am
back in Rambles Ville hehehe.  I was going to put more of
my trip photos in this weeks stationery,  but decided to wait
until maybe next week or other and put in many of the pictures
I took this passed week.  I think you’ll like them if of course
you are ones that are receiving this in stationery style hehe.
If not,  than what I just said won’t make any difference to
you in any way shape or form  LOL.  So I guess I need to
start telling you what I tell you every week and that is,  I
wrote some more poems and haiku.  Yep,  10 more poems,
but none are Christmassy this week hehehe.  I also wrote
once agin 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there.
So now I guess it’s time for me to be searching for that old
sort of elusive off switch,  but not before I wish you a most
blessed day and a God filled week.  Remember,  Jesus
loves you and we do too.  Now to find that silly off switch.
I see ya you silly thing.  You’d think your hiding abilities
would have gotten better in all these years huh.  Hiding
under my tissue box only guarantees you will be seen,
being I have tons of allergies and your sort of rocking
the box LOL.  Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Copy or Print

Do you feel imitated
as an echo in time
with copy or print being
what’s yours and mine.
People will often days
take what they see
and copy or print it
in their history.
The lines found on faces
that display your style
others might find as
a reason to smile.
Yet there’s so often
what many don’t know
that copy or print is
just but a show.
Don’t let your lifestyle
to just repeat mine
for copy or print might
not be your time.

Seasons Hurry

Breezes blowing
in a flurry
time might seems as
seasons hurry.
Minutes ticking
found with passion
then at times might
seem to ration.
Seasons hurry
sometimes past
often leaving
shadows cast.
Looking surely
at each day
seasons hurry
each which way.
Yet they might just
seem slowed down
when old winter
comes to town,
but it moves on
soon to show
seasons hurry
melting snow.
Then as springtime
comes in place
seasons hurry
summers race.
Then the heat of
summers days
are found beating
sunshine’s rays.
Yet the seasons
hurry on
to display what’s
then and gone.

The Sight of God

Each day passes
showing true
the sight of God
in thereunto.
Here and there
from day to day
the sight of God
is on display.
Yet so often
ones won’t see
the sight of God
in history.
Many search on
daily true
seeking for their
favorite view
while not allowing
God to shine
in their lives
from time to time.
Sometimes our own
ways decided
are found as Lord
God divided.
Let Him Guide you
where you go
and the sight of God
will surely show.

Seamless Shadows

Times connections
far and wide
seamless shadows
are applied.
Often viewpoints
you and me
are without seams
which we see.
Yet there are those
times connections
not so seamless
in directions.
Seamless shadows
might be found
when we’re looking
all around.
It’s the smallest
things we find
that show seams
in each design.
Yet so seamless
shadows show
when we hurry
where we go.

Four Legged Shadows

With footsteps in time
they follow around
four legged shadows
with a clickety sound.
Their paws connecting
with toes on the floor
four legged shadows
are there evermore.
When we walk one way
they follow us true
to see what it is that
we’re gonna do.
Four legged shadows
of Milo and Benny
tiptoe behind us
with sounds a bit tinny.
They’re our two boys
of a four pawed design
four legged shadows
just walking behind.

The Length of Time

While looking one way
another goes by
leaving the length then
wondering why.
Thinking that one way
goes by too slow
while not perceiving
the speed it will go
often makes many to
wrongly perceive
what that seems slowly
is a time to achieve.
The length of time
is only our view
in how we perceive it
then thereunto.
Look for the moments
much greater in time
found as the length
inside of your mind.

The Day Fades Away

As the day fades away
it leaves but a sight
found a bit starlit
and moonlit and night.
The glimmers of daytime
are only displayed
as that of setting suns
own lemonade.
Pouring as colorful
scenic designs
the day fades away
as poetry rhymes.
Painted as sunshine
glimmering true
the day fades away
to a sweet orangish hue.
Then as the evening
grows much darker yet
the day fades away
to less of sunset.

Finding Blessings

Winds of worry
seem to blow
when we hurry
where we go.
Finding blessings
in our sight
might be journeys
thought not right.
Often pathways
that we struggle
are with our ways
that we juggle.
Seeking blessings
not our time
can become as
bad design.
Finding blessings
will come true
when the right time
is with you.

Heaven’s Glimmer

Days show clouds just
floating by
here and there
so very high.
Heaven’s glimmer
is found blue
behind the clouds
a wondrous view.
Then as nighttime
comes in place
heaven’s glimmer
shines in space.
Stars that twinkle
so divine
display moments
eyes can dine.
Seen as wondrous
nighttime’s dinner
is the sight of
heaven’s glimmer.

The Sounds of Night

When night is found
it gives a glance
of many things
that seem to dance.
Night will display
things that blow
the sounds at night
that come and go.
The sounds might scare
you half to death
causing you
to lose your breath.
Yet often sounds
that many hear
are just what’s heard
not very clear.
Often what the
night will share
is sounds we find
each day aware.
The sounds of night
are fears creations
that’s dark of nights

for May 31,  2014

Today brings thoughts
that can come alive in time
if we allow them.

Serious thinking
can cause ulcers deep inside,
so find you some peace.

Lessons come sometimes
in form of some disasters
that we lived to tell.

Looks can be misread
for many can hide feelings
and show deception.

Not allowing truth
to live and breathe within you
can push ones away.

Allowing sadness
to become your daily life
will disallow joy.

Our limits in life
are often of our own choice
and not that of God’s.

Storms might bring sadness,
but with God there is hopeful
found as a rainbow.

Tomorrows  sunrise
might come with a few raindrops
that we need to live.

Beginnings are found
when endings are positioned
in their point and time.

The meanings of words
are often not understood
leading to anger.

Our unknown mishaps
might turn into some secrets
we think we should hide.

Searching for a smile
could find a few sad faces
that need help to smile.

Not letting hopeful
to live and breathe through Jesus
could find misery.

Knowing another
might not display as that great,
for we have secrets.

Timeless reactions
show others our emotions
through our escapades.

A letter of love
that is written with passion
could be good or bad.

Deep within nighttime
the stars glimmer with the moon
giving us some light.

A page of our life
is often found as dog-eared
so to remember.

A journey through time
might have quite a few speed bumps
to make us slow down.

Breathing in summer
gives a glimpse of sunshine
that’s followed by rain.

Tomorrows worries
could be just our imagination
making it much worse.
