We May Often


Hello my friends

It’s been a warm one today.  Not quite as bad as it could be,
but it’s warm enough.  It’s 84 F degrees right now at 5 PM.
Of course if we didn’t have our portable AC,  it would be a
lot warmer than that right now in here.  There’s not much of
a breeze today.  It’s supposed to be in the mid to upper 80’s
all week long,  though the weather forecast predicts that it
will drop to the mid 70’s by Thursday and stay there for a
bit.  So that’s great.  Judy and I are watching a TV program
on the HGTV channel called Flip or Flop.  I won’t get into
explaining it,  because if you’re into those type of programs
you’ll already know what it is LOL.  A short info about it
is home renovation.  Now on with the journal.  The doctors
have deduced that Judy’s mom has pneumonia.  She’s still
in the hospital and will be there for at least another week or
so.  Keep her in your prayers.  She’s diabetic and blind with
a few other health issues and pneumonia is taking a toll on
her.  Anyways,  put her and her family in your prayers.  So,
what else is going on up this way?  We still are lacking in
neighbors.  We still have one neighbor,  but for how long,
that’s the question.  It would be nice to get some decent
neighbors.  We had some a while back,  but they had to
move due to finances and other.  One of our neighbors
used to fly RC airplanes and I’d video tape them in flight.
We also used to go fishing every year,  but since he has
moved,  we haven’t been fishing and I’ve only seen him
once a few years ago.  Another of our neighbors had some
kids that used to play with Benny and we miss them also
quite a bit and so does Benny. Now I just entertain myself
with my drumming videos and picture taking :).  Judy and
I enjoy our time with the boys.  Benny and Milo are doing
well.  Just as ornery as ever LOL.  Milo insist on lying
down right in front of me relieving me of any leg room.
I’ve already moved him once hehehehe and he’s back.
Though now,  he’s over to the left a bit leaving me at
least a little bit of leg room LOL.  Benny went outside
for a bit thinking in his little doggy brain that it would
be cooler outside rather than in here with the AC LOL.
After a bit,  he was ready to come back inside and now
he’s camping out in here with us.  We’ve been noticing
a lot of flooding as well as tornadoes going on in a few
states.  Our prayers go out to all of those in the midst
of the storms.  Boy I tell ya what,  everything is totally
green up this ways.  Hehehe our colors are green and
white LOL.  Of course fall brings us many more colors,
but they only last for a few weeks.  I love the greens
that seem to pop in so vibrant and also love the sight
of snow as it enhances the distant scenery,  so I guess
you could say,  I like it all.  It doesn’t get near as hot
up here as it does way down in Texas where I’m from.
I never could handle the heat and with the loss of my
many internal organs,  it makes it even worse on me
with dealing with heat.  So yes I do seem to manage
better with wintertime than I do with summertime :).
I’m enjoying watching Flip or Flop with Judy right
now :).  We love to watch programs like that such
as Property Brothers,  Brother vs Brother,  House
Hunters and a few more.  Finding Bigfoot is one of
our favorite TV programs too hehehe.  It’s on tonight.
Judy and I have many favorite TV programs that
we watch together.  Yep,  surprising as it might seem,
we enjoy most of the same TV programs as well the
things we do such as picture taking.  It’s great having
someone to share the days with.  LOL OK,  it’s also
great to have Benny and Milo to share the days with.
It seems that they have always been with us even if
it has been but only a couple of years.  There’s not
much to tell ya hehehe.  Life here at the Pearce’s
Place is pretty much a day to day turnstile with just
a few different pages turned.  Nope, we don’t live an
extravagant lifestyle LOL.  There’s more to life than
trying to keep up with the Jones.  Being happy with
what you have and being thankful can find you more
in life.  Yes :),  we do at times wish or should I say
DREAM about being rich or at least having a better
financial status,  but neither of us was raised with
much so we’ve learned to be happy with less which
in many cases is more LOL.  I see so many that
have it all,  but it seems that their worries are also
magnified.  They might try to hide it,  but when you
get a good look at their lives,  they are so worried
about what others think of them and are concerned
with keeping up with the others that it can become
a boulder rolling down hill quickly.  To get off of that
topic,  my leg is cramping badly right now making
it hard to sit and type,  so I have to stop ever so
often and stretch it.  It still hurts bad,  but there’s
not anything I can do about it,  so onwards I go :).
My chair keeps lowering down on me hehehe which
might be due to my 225 lbs sat upon it.  The chairs
not meant for that much weight I think LOL.  Oh
well,  I’ll continue to keep on raising it back up each
time it sinks on me :).  It’s just a small problem LOL.
I thank God for all that He has done for us.  He has
kept His mighty hands over us protecting us and
given us what we need.  We may often think that
we don’t have much,  but when we take the time to
take a long look at our lives,  we can see so many
things that we have that others do not.  Peace of
mind is a great gift.  LOL Milo just snuck in under
my feet and has stolen my leg room again.  Ok so
Judy just left the room to get her pizza out of the
oven and Milo and Benny followed her,  so I got
my leg room back YEAH.  All in all,  our life here
in the northeastern portion of the United States
is pretty good.  We have a lot to be thankful for
and I’m sure if you take a close look,  you’ll see
that God has been looking out for you as well.
Don’t let the minor things in life to become the
only thing you focus on.  Look for the little smiles
that might be overlooked from time to time as
a bad moment might become your daily view.
Look beyond a moments storm clouds and find
the joy in a rainbow.  Now I believe it’s time for
me to be taking my little trip 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 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 found a
good title and now after checking,  I see that I
haven’t used it yet hehehe so here goes.

We May Often

Minutes turn quickly
with troubles we see
and we may often
just see misery.
Yesterdays sadness
might right now be found
when we are now days
just looking around.
Yes we may often
just find sadness grow
what we should see with
our smiles daily flow.
So,  if you’re seeing now
only the rain
look for the blessings
and cease to complain.
For we may often just
miss what’s the best,
but if we clearly look
we’ll find the zest.
With all God’s blessings
from our time to time
we may often then
find peace of mind.

So,  there ya go.  Yea,  I know hehehe,  it’s not that good,
but hey,  I did the best I could at the moment :).  I’m not
gonna always come up with a good poem hehehehehehe.
Yet,  I hope you enjoyed my rambling and yes maybe even
the poem LOL.  Milo tried to sneak up under my feet agin,
but I kind of gave him a nudge and he moved just to the
left of me hehehe.  I have been eating my dinner while
writing and watching TV hehehe.  It kind of makes me
split up my focal points :).  I can’t think of anything else to
talk about,  so I guess 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 and 22 more
haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there.  A couple of
my poems are just silly so to give ya a grin hehehehehe.
I hope you find something you like.  Now I believe it’s
time for me to begin my search for that not so elusive
off switch,  but not before I wish you a most wonderful
weekend and a God filled week.  Remember,  Jesus
loves you and we do too.  LOL Milo has moved over
to Judy’s feet.  Anyways,  now where is that freaking
off switch?  Oh for Heaven’s sake,  are you even trying
to hide?  I guess ya might of thought that if you just
remained still,  I wouldn’t see ya,  but sitting on top
of the Esc button on my keyboard hehehehehehehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Looks of Clouds

Smiling faces
in the sky
looks of clouds
so very high.
Scenes transfixing
looks of clouds
create a view.
Moments passing
white and grey
looks of clouds
will paint a day.
Smiles so fluffy
or with rain
look s of clouds
are time again.
Temporal seconds
float on by
looks of clouds
up in the sky.

Yesterdays Shadows

Today and tomorrow
are yesterdays gain
found from the shadows
that then did attain.
Yesterdays shadows
good times and bad
give us the lessons
that then never had.
It’s with the doorways
of shadows created
that we can find times
better not wasted.
Lessons abundantly
found to and fro
yesterdays shadows
help us to grow.
So make nows shadows
that future can see
so that you might find
good history.

Lightning’s Romance

When the storm clouds
come with rain
lightning’s romance
starts again.
Making thunder
sound a roar
lightning’s romance
starts to soar.
Lightning streaking
across the sky
making thunder
with a sigh.
Echoes of it
distance seen
might create
the wildest dream.
Lightning’s romance
seen at night
makes the night sky
very bright.
Then as thunder
rolls and wakes
lightning’s romance
gives and takes.

Grateful Heart

The days we find
that fill with pain
a grateful heart
can cease the rain.
The storms of life
that come and go
a grateful heart
can end the woe.
Being grateful
for a breath
or what goodness
you have left.
A grateful heart
can bring you peace
if you find
your pains release.
Search and find
that happy place
a grateful heart
and smiling face.
Don’t let passed days
bring you down.
A grateful heart
can cease your frown.
Now let yesterdays
lessons learned
be so grateful
heart discerned.

Perfect Time

With a minute
passing view
time might be
the right to do.
A perfect time
and perfect place
might be there
for your embrace.
Yet so often
fear of change
leaves perspective
out of range.
A perfect time
for you and me
is concurring
soon to see.
Let God guide your
moments mind
and then show
the perfect time.

Our little boys
with little voices
tell us of their
moments choices.
A little woof
and then much louder
wanting their own
type of chowder.
Maybe not so
full of fixins,
but they came
within our kitchen.
All their favorite
foods to eat
woof they ask me
to complete.
A little woof
from our two boys
is the sound
of our woof mccoys.

Mowers Mowing

Sounds of lawn mowers
fill the air
as they’re mowing
Through the backside
then the front
mowers mowing
bumpity bump.
Lawnmower motors
roaring loud
with their drivers
oh so proud.
For the seasons
greenness grass
they’re now mowing
really fast.
Trying to keep up
with its growing
the riders ride on
mowers mowing.

Thoughts of Snow

While the summers
heat moves on
I’m now thinking
winters dawn.
Thoughts of snow
with whitish hue
fill my mind now
every view.
Summers setting
is with clouds
often as a
morning shrouds.
Scenes of peaceful
comes in sight
thoughts of snow
each day and night.
Yet now green grass
and some trees
displays all
my moment sees.
While my thoughts still
move along
thoughts of snow
from dusk to dawn.

Having Faith

When your troubles
seem too great
have some faith
that they’ll abate.
Maybe later
times to see,
but trust God
will set them free.
Having faith
is surely how
life can blossom
what that’s now.
Maybe later
dates you’ll find
God was with you
all the time.
Don’t let troubles
steal your smile.
Having faith
is better style.
Find the blessings
time has shown
and then trust
you’re not alone.
God is with you
every day
in His very Own
wondrous way.
He hears our prayers
and answers too
with what all
that’s best for you.

Dusk Has Come

Evening’s fell
on what I see
bringing dusk
so fancy free.
Stars are starting
twinkles sight.
Dusk has come
to bring us night.
Even moonlight
shares the view
where dusk thrives
each sight anew.
Evenings blessings
find a place
dusk has come
with God’s Own Grace.
Scenes transfixing
dark explores
dusk has come
through swinging doors.

for June 28,  2014

Thriving are the sights
that nighttime makes come alive
when sunshine passes.

Doorways to today
are often entered too fast
causing us problems.

Faded memories
might come back into clear view
through a few pictures.

Links to our problems
could be found within our minds
and how we’re thinking.

Glorified mornings
come with chances for new life,
leaving old behind.

The scenes that we see
are recorded inside our minds
maybe not clearly.

A story written
might not be clearly worded
leaving mysteries.

Life brings sunrises
with some eventful moments
leading to sunset.

Looks of a smiler
might not be happy at all,
but hiding a frown.

Long winded people
often say more than they should
to describe little.

With but a heartbeat
a person can change the world
with minutes counted.

Summertime’s rain clouds
can turn to storm clouds quickly,
but still bring rainbows..

A liars own truth
gets clouded as time goes by
leaving them empty.

Life is a venture
through turnstiles of mysteries
that often needs faith.

Living in dream worlds
could end in your destruction
not facing what’s real.

Ones asking questions
need not believe all answers,
for some might be wrong.

The length of minutes
might be longer to someone
than to another.

Beyond yesterday
holds the lessons for today
and then tomorrow.

Moving too quickly
can make you lose track of time
and miss the good things.

Losing a moment
does not mean the day is done,
for more chances come.

The stars in the sky
give birth to a long story
written with twinkles.

Flowers found blooming
have a few stories to tell
spring unto summer.
