Though We Didn’t


Hello my friends

It’s been another week gone by and the weekend has been
sort of on the same old side  Today has begun with a bit of
emergency though.  Judy’s mom is not doing well and is on
the way to the hospital.  They called for the ambulance just
a bit ago.  Keep her mom in your prayers that it is nothing
life threatening.  I won’t get into details,  because in reality
neither Judy nor I really know that much of what’s wrong,
but God does.  Anyways,  keep her and her family in your
prayers.  Judy is now headed to the hospital to see her mom.
Me and the boys will hold down the fort.  Judy and all of her
sisters will be at the hospital.  So it’s on with the journal.
The weather up this ways has been pretty nice.  It’s rained
off and on.  Even today we got a little rain shower.  The
sun has come out since then though.  Right now at 5 PM
it’s 68 F degrees.  I took a few cloud pictures through the
week and also took a few more this morning.  The boys are
watching the front door waiting for Judy to get back home.
LOL,  they are so loving.  Milo just strolled in here to see
me :).  If I get done writing before Judy gets home,  we
might all go outside and play some.  Heck,  we might do
it even after Judy gets home.  Milo had to go potty,  so I
let him outside and Benny followed him out the door,  but
Milo after he was done ran back up the steps and wanted
back inside.  Of course,  Benny wanted to stay outside for
a bit as always :).  He’ll be ready to come back inside in
a bit.  Especially when he gets hungry hehehe.  Yeppers,
our little homestead is just a simple life.  I love to hear
the wind blowing and raindrops hitting our home.  When
it snows,  the world outside becomes magical.  When the
tree limbs sparkle with snow on their limbs,  it’s like a
Hallmark card.  Yes,  I do love summertime,  but even it
can get old.  Of course we don’t have near the heat that
I grew up with in Texas,  but it does get warm from time to
time.  :).  That’s why I bought this portable air conditioner.
For those time to times LOL.  I’ve got it set on dehumidify
right now.  It actually cools the room quite nicely while
it removes the humidity from the air.  Milo has gone to
lie on our bed.  There’s a nice breeze in there with a fan
helping to blow some cool air from outside and he’s right
in front of it LOL.  I guess I need to check on Benny to
see if he’s ready to come inside.  Be right back………….
Benny was sitting on the porch and ready to come back
in.  LOL they both just came strolling in here wanting
me to pet them and I’m sure with other hidden agendas
such as wanting treats,  which they’re not gonna get just
yet.  If I gave them treats every time they wanted treats,
they would be fatter than Garfield the cat LOL.  Right
now they look fat,  but it’s only due to their hair being
bushy hehehe.  Yep,  they’re needing another trimming.
Judy was going to give them a little trim while I was
writing before she found out about her mom,  so the
trimming will have to wait.  As you can see,  or should
I say tell from my writings,  we live a slow life up here.
We’re totally loving our new car.  It’s so nice to not
have to close the car doors quickly after we started it
so not to get smoke in the car LOL.  When you first
started up our little Mazda,  it would billow smoke out
of the tailpipe hehehe,  but soon cease.  It was an old
car ya know.  19 years young hehehe.  I’m actually
surprised that it lasted as long as it did.  She got us
everywhere we needed to go.  I sure miss that little
red car,  but it might be revived and sold to another
person somewhere in time.  I find I’m often looking
for our red car when we come out of WalMart hehehe.
It’s gonna take time to get used to it,  but I’m sure
I will.  It’s 66 F degrees now at 7 PM.  Not too awful
bad huh!  I thank God for the little breezes that come
our way.  They give the day a personality while the
clouds give it a picturesque view.  The sky above us
gives us its own glimmer of decor through all of the
seasons of change.  I will often find myself transfixed
on the scenes in the distance that the skyline seems
to enhance.  Mountains, valleys and hills become
the pictures that I try to capture not only with my
eyes,  but with my camera.  LOL,  Milo just plopped
down in the floor right beneath me.  Now I have No
leg room LOL.  Oh well,  I haven’t got much else to
talk about.  The Pearce’s Place is pretty quiet other
than a little barking here and there.  Of course we
have to turn the TV up to almost full blast because
we’re both a little bit deaf LOL,  so you might say,
that would make our house a bit noisy hehehehehe.
I hope Judy’s mom is OK.  I keep waiting for a phone
call!  Well,  Judy and her sisters are there with her.
There’s not much else to tell ya about.  My cousin
Greg has been calling me often and I’ve enjoyed
our talks.  Him and his brother Randy/Phil were
almost like brothers to me.  Though we didn’t get
to spend much time together when we were young,
we still felt close.  Anyways,  thanks for keeping
in touch Greg :).  God has kept His strong Hands
over Judy and I protecting us and guiding us with
His Love.  I have so many friends in the world that
I would love to be able to meet or see again,  but
I’m sure if it’s meant to be,  it will be.  I guess it’s
time for me to begin my little search back through
all that I’ve written here to see if I can find a good
word or phrase that I can use for the 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 think I may have
found a good title and it seems that I haven’t
used it yet,  so here goes.

Though We Didn’t

Many a minute
of days burning bright
there are some things
we did not do right.
Though we didn’t do
many things so good,
God allowed timeframes
to be what they should.
Often our self will
is found running ragged
leaving us problems
we’ve found a bit jagged.
Yet it’s those problems
that we each go through
that are most often
our lessons so true.
Though we might not of
meant to do wrong
God can put those times
where they belong.
Let not your passed days
to prevent now tomorrow
for God can make goodness
from our times so hollow.
Maybe though we didn’t
shine bright as some others
our lives in the moments
are sisters and brothers.
We are God’s children
with love of the same,
for He doesn’t care about
fortune and fame.

There ya go.  I hope you liked the poem and you weren’t
bored to death by my rambling LOL.  I have a very special
friend in Oregon that I would like you to send your prayers
to.  Jimmy is having health issues,  (Cancer), but he’s been
keeping with the faith.  I’m sure your prayers would help.
I know you asked me not to say anything Jimmy,  but we
love you my friend.  Hang in there.  God is in control,  but
I’m sure you already know that :).  Now,  is there anything
I might of forgot?   Hmmm,  thinking!  Nope,  can’t think
of anything.  LOL except it’s 63 F degree now at 8 PM :).
So I reckon I need to tell you what I tell you every week
and that is,  I wrote some more poems and haiku.   LOL
I gave an effort to write all of the poems as well as the
haiku while Judy and I were watching TV yesterday and
I think I did pretty good hehehe.  I wrote 10 more poems,
but none of em are Christmas poems this week.  I also
wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there.
I hope you find one or two of either or both that you like.
Now I believe it’s time for me to be trying to find that off
off switch that’s not so successful at hiding hehehe,  but
not before I wish you a most joyous remainder of the
weekend and a God filled week.  Remember,  Jesus
loves you and we do too.  Now,  where is that freaking
off switch attempting to hide this time LOL?  Oh for
Heavens sake hehehe,  couldn’t ya try just a little bit
harder?  Hiding behind my Ibuprofen bottle isn’t all
that great dude.  It’s not all that large.  I can see you
poking out from behind it.  Better luck next time LOL.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Without Then

Scenes we remember
from times other day
are found as some echoes
when change comes our way.
All of those memories
sweetest to shine
could not without then
be so sublime.
For with the then days
of yesterdays while
today and tomorrow has
strength for a smile.
Bringing the good times
from our memories
can make your future have
much better seas,
For without then days
of yesterdays time
there is no help with
now days design.

A New Sheet of Paper

The book of time
is written and said
with many pictures
inside of our head.
A new sheet of paper
can rewrite the book
with new perceptions
of how that we look.
Not those external,
but internal views
can make the paper
to show better news.
New views well written
without all the bad
that our yesterdays
just might of had.
A new sheet of paper
can help you to write
today and tomorrow with
much better sight.

Found in a heartbeat
a moment can be
love found from Jesus,
our sanctuary.
Looking with trueness
and losing the lies
there is the sense of
many blue skies.
Our sanctuary
can explode with a smile
as we look inwards
with love to compile.
Let not the hard times
that you have been through
to disrupt future
that God can give you.
Find all the blessings
so timeless to see
within God’s wonderful
It can be now days
or future times grace
found sanctuary
that we can embrace.

If We’ll Release

A life’s pool of essence
can be found with peace
if we will swim with
sad times release.
Not hanging tightly
to the other side
life can show ventures
arms opened wide.
If we’ll release then
letting times go
we can find blessings
that will surely grow.
Not letting sadness
of our yesterdays
fill up our future with
just bitter greys.
The pool of tomorrow
needs us to swim
while then releasing
yesterdays dim.
If we’ll release what’s
holding us back
we might find better
to get us on track.

The Winds of Summer

Glimmers of sunshine’s
summertime’s days
display as pages of
wonderful ways
The winds of summer
blow through the trees
filling the moments with
mornings cool breeze.
Peaceful winds blowing
in with a smile
cooling our home down
in just a while.
Windows of sunshine
show through to see
given as blessings
for you and me.
The winds of summer
are pulses of time
blowing in daily
with some sunshine.

Maine’s Way of Life

When I awaken
and open my eyes
I walk to see the
Maine days surprise.
Sometimes as snowflakes
gathered so true
displaying wintertime
with every view.
Sometimes as springtime
still with some snow
while it then melts away
then oh so slow.
Then is found summertime
cooling a while
while I watch daily
with a big smile.
Then comes the colors
of Autumns array
in Maine’s way of life
with such a display.
Then again snowflakes
fall to the ground
in Maine’s way of life
as time goes around.

The Feeling of Smiles

As days are numbered
in counted a whiles
someone can give you
the feeling of smiles.
For if depression
is living in you
the feeling of smiles
can change up your view.
Someone that’s smiling
while walking their way
might be the thing to
change up your day.
The feeling of smiles
is good medicine
and it’s reflection
can make yours begin.
True there are days that
smiles are not seen,
but that’s when you need to
make them routine.
For then just maybe
that smile that you made
might become real from
life’s lemonade.

In A Second

Now and then
a seconds gone
unto dusk
and then to dawn.
In a second
time is found
sometimes seen
to go around.
Seconds passing
to and fro
left and right
as minutes grow.
Hours gather
seconds pass
within windows
shadows cast.
In a second
now and then
brings a moment
to begin.

Clouds of Rain

Morning comes
with clouds of rain
to fall upon
our windowpane.
Pitter patters
that we hear
are the sounds
that do appear.
Raindrops falling
over all
are what clouds
of rain will fall.
Bringing new days
oh so green
found in summer
after spring.
Soon those moments
we’ll attain
with the mornings
clouds of rain.

I Find Myself

Sometimes I find myself
searching the skies
looking at the scenery
filled with surprise.
I find myself often
just imagining scenes
found in the clouds above
seen through our screens.
Sometimes my viewpoints
are hidden inside
decked out in dream world
with eyes opened wide.
The world’s not illusion
for it does exist
in the places of long ago
waves rolling swift.
My dream world can sometimes
be found on our shelf
with pictures of passed days
I find myself.

for June 21,  2014

Today brings patterns
that can change our decisions,
but still leave us hope.

Minutes bring chances
for a better tomorrow
beginning right now.

Clouds of summertime
find a way to decorate
the blue skies above.

The wind blows a breeze
with the sounds of a heartbeat
that trees emulate.

Without a dreamer
our future would be boring,
for dreams come alive.

Looking for springtime
might be hard found under snow
in northeastern Maine.

Loose lips of liars
can find themselves in trouble
for truth will be found.

Allowing passed days
to determine what can be
can hinder your growth.

The sight of snowflakes
gives view of winters efforts
to paint scenery.

Time is a journey
that many will find themselves
a real bumpy ride.

Flowers of colors
decorate so many scenes
with also their scents.

A lesson that’s learned
can become a tool to use
for you and others.

Many surprises
find their ways into our lives,
some good and some bad.

Yesterdays turnstile
swung with our expectations
that might of been dreams.

A snowflakes journey
finds a pathway from Heaven
landing here on Earth.

Two dogs play around
as the sunshine fades from view
and nighttime is found.

Places we’ve been to
can become as medicine
to recall when sad.

A photograph of time
travels like a memory
that your eyes can see.

Nighttime comes alive
with ones fear of the darkness
that sight cannot see.

Thoughts of afterlife
some see as an illusion,
but truth is alive.

Today’s a heartbeat
that’s filled with many rhythms
and some out of time.

Finding common ground
needs us to look beyond sight
and see what’s inside.
