Beautiful Handiwork


Hello my friends

So how have ya been?  We’ve been doing better these
passed few days.  Judy’s place of business had a little
down fall when two employees quit and it left Judy to
have to work on one of her days off,  but they have since
hired a new guy.  It’s a guy that worked there a long
while back when Judy worked there, so he is familiar
with it all and learned all the new stuff rather quickly
as Judy did.  So Judy is only supposed to work 4 hours
today so to not add anymore overtime for those people
to have to pay LOL.  Judy goes back to her old regular
schedule starting Monday.  Anyways,  we did manage
to take our drive up to Grand Falls Canada Wednesday
before she had to go back to work Thursday.  We got
a lot of great shots,  to which some are in the stationary
that you see if you are receiving this in stationary style :).
If you’re not,  then I am so sorry.  If you want me to
send you some of the pictures,  let me know.  Otherwise
we may upload a few of em to MySpace and FaceBook.
I hope you have had a wonderful weekend.  It’s been
a same old one for us thus far LOL.  Yet Judy should
be home by noon today.  She went in at 8.  The weather
is quite nice today.  It’s 59 degrees as I speak and it’s
supposed to get up to 62.  That’s Fahrenheit folks LOL!
Did ya ever notice that Fahrenheit and Celsius become
the same number at -40 hehe!  Yeppers it all evens out
right about there.  OK so it’s onto another less math
filled topic LOL.  As I said before,  Judy and I managed
to get to Grand Falls Canada and we also stopped and
saw the longest covered bridge in the world which is
also in the stationary.  We had a nice time taking photos
and an even nicer time looking at the pictures when we
got home.  Of course we were almost not allowed back in
the states,  because we did not have our birth certificates
that we did not need to enter LOL.  Yet after a while
of briefing and all,  and listening to my Texas accent 🙂
they determined that we were Americans as it said on
our drivers license LOL.  I won’t get into all the dumb
questions they asked me that involved my life way back
in 1980 hehehehe.  Oh well,  it was not too bad of an
interrogation LOL.  We are back home on American
soil and happy to be. They asked us when we planned
on returning to Canada and we both looked and each
other and said RETURN???  Yea right LOL!  After
what we went through getting in and getting out , we
don’t plan on wasting our time on getting a passport.
Surely by then they will have changed the rules AGAIN.
Yeppers,  we had a good visit,  but don’t plan on going
back anytime soon hehehe.  OK so it’s hopefully off of
that topic LOL and onto another.  It’s looking more
like spring every day up here.  The grass is greening
up nicely.  I haven’t seen any signs of flowers though.
I guess they are waiting for the weather to stabilize :).
No sense in sticking your head out if you’re gonna get
frozen shortly after huh hehehe!  Yet I do not see any
freezing weather in the near future for us.  Close,  but
no cigar LOL!  Springtime is most surely coming close,
but me thinks summer will beat it LOL.  The seasons
are yet beautiful to gaze upon.  God paints His pictures
with the most wonderful paint.  His paint is love based.
Take the time out today to look out around and find
all the beauty that God has painted for you to view.
Let the stresses of the day to bleed away as you gaze
upon God’s beautiful handiwork.  Listen to the breeze
as it rushes here and there.  If you cannot see God’s
beauty where you are standing,  then search for yet
another place to stand.  Now,  I think it’s about time
for me to be searching for the word or phrase to use
for the title for today’s brand new poem,  so it’s away
I go to that place of recollection of past things written,
to that place that I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I do believe I may have stumbled upon a good title while
reading back through.  Now let’s see what I can do
with it hehehe!!!!

Beautiful Handiwork

The sights and the sounds
of all there around
are the tempters so sweet
that none can compete.
Scenes such as flowers
I’m amazed there for hours.
All of God’s glory
is in today’s story.
Written in the waves
of the day after days.
A single little sight
seen at daytime and night
is the beauty of The Hands
of God’s painted lands.
Look with your heartbeat
and feel in your mind
the sights and the sounds
God gave us to find.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling as well as the poem.  I try
to switch to different styles ever so often.  Yet I mostly like
the lyrical and haiku.  Well I once again did not write any
poems until Friday night.  This time I wrote 12 poems and
22 haiku in 3 hours LOL.  It seems to work best for me to
wait and compile all that I have seen and heard in the week
into one night and write.  Don’t ask me.  Ask God!  He’s the
one that gave me this gift.  Anyways,  I hope you like some
of the poems and haiku.  They each tell a story of something
in my mind.  We each have stories within us.  Find a way
to express them.  Share with a friend or paint a picture or
better yet hehehe write a poem.  God’s given us each one
gifts to use,  yet many of you do not know fully what your
gift is.  Pray about it and do what comes natural.  You may
find you’ve been using your gift all along and didn’t even
know it hehe.  Gifts fall into many different categories.
The gift of friendship, love,  heart,  trust and then the gifts
of artistry of many categories, such as song,  voice,  poetry,
painting, sculpting etc, etc!  Let God help you find your
gift in life.  Oh yea,  I wrote another early Christmas poem
this time.  I hope you like it LOL.  With that said,  I guess
it’s about time I were searching for ye old off switch on my
typing hands hehehe, but before I do that I must bid you
farewell.  So have a wonderful week and remember that
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Now where is that blasted
off switch hiding at this time LOL?  Found it.  hehehe see ya,
CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems.

This Spring

Windows are opened
to let in a breeze
with all the flavors
of flowers and trees.
Spring has arisen
or so in may seem
to be slowly changing
to more than a dream.
Times door is swinging
with inwards and out
as it allows all
the sights thereabout.
The scenes arriving
are more than a view,
for they are gathered
as each one anew.
Found on a windowpane
are segments of light
seen as our daytime
and also our night.
Open your window
and take in the scene
of all that God has
given this spring,

Sometimes The Story

Somehow a story
will turn inside out
and leave ones thinking
a little with doubt.
Sometimes the story
might seem out of phase
when ones that hear it
don’t know of the days.
Somehow a story
might find it is heard
by ones surrounding
a little absurd.
Listen real closely
to words that are spoke
for you might learn that
it is not a joke.
Sometimes the story
that seems a bit sad,
might be a journey
of just what they had.

Spring Times Design

Pictures of moments
are taken and seen
found as the photos
of New England Spring.
In our surroundings
are found day to day
the ending of April
beginning with May.
We took our photos
of here thereabout
as we went onwards
are Canada route.
With all the pictures
we gained quite a view
of all surroundings
of here thereunto.
Pictures paint stories
to read and discern
so we again then
can one day return.
All of the photos
of that special time
we can remember
as spring times design.

Don’t So Quickly

Holding a pattern
leaves journeys ahead
without a waver
of something instead.
Learn of a different
pattern to be
as you go onwards
and see what you see.
Don’t let a moment
to slip passed your sight
as you hold patterns
of left maybe right.
Let yourself blossom
with lessons to learn
then you’ll have patterns
to help you discern.
If you’re too fearful
of what that could be,
you may not ever then
have sight to see.
Lessons come daily
from things that we do
and they’re the blessings
to help me and you.
Tools may be hidden
in what’s seen and heard
so don’t so quickly
just count them absurd.

Peaceful For Free

Heard is the sound
of a breeze blowing by
while I sit counting
my who, where and why.
Felt are the rhythms
of breezes in time
as they paint pictures
of their own design.
Heard is the ticking
of the clock in the room
as it in someway
just seems to consume.
Breathed are emotions
of heartbeats array
while I sit counting
my day after day.
Heroes are portraits
of segments I find,
for they are God’s gift’s
that clear up my mind.
Heard is the sound
of the silence and me
as all the blessings
of peaceful for free.

A Tunnel

Time is a tunnel
that we may not see,
for we are looking
at just a degree.
In a mere moment
our time well ahead
may turn a corner
to somewhere instead.
Time is a tunnel
that we sometimes view
as it is someone,
but just isn’t you.
Many times ventures
of ours that we meet
may find the footing
with much different feet.
Time is a tunnel
that connects thereunto
as we continue
to do what we do.

I Was Just Thinking

I was just thinking
about Christmas day
and why so many
just throw it away?
I was just wondering
about what and where
and why so many
just say they don’t care.
I think that Christmas
should live all year long
and be within us
where it does belong.
I was just wondering
about many things,
such as the blessings
that Christmastime brings.
I was just thinking
about how today
could be much brighter
with a Christmas array.

Love And Care

One by one people
in a two by two world
leave their alignment
just a little unfurled.
Ones in a threshold
of steps to and fro
sometimes will falter
with where they’re to go.
One by one journeys
are found two by two
as many head on
their own way anew.
Don’t leave a loved one
with only one sight.
Take on the pattern
of what that is right.
Love is a blossom
that God gave to grow
so do not hurry
to just let it go.
Love is a blessing
that we are to share.
So let your heartbeat
give ones love and care.

There All The Time

Deep in my mind
I can feel and can see
what that the future
is bringing to me.
Sometimes the pictures
are clouds of a sort
and I remember
a weather report.
Rain in the passed days
of segmented time
seems to encompass
right here in my mind.
Within a moment
I find I can view
a much clearer setting
with a sky that is blue.
Deep in my mind
I feel and can see
much of a moment
that’s living in me.
God given segments
of blessings and more
seem to come into
my timetables door.
While I am thinking,
I see and can feel
those Jesus blessings
of a fragrant appeal.
He’s right here with me
in my heart and mind
and I know truly
He’s there all the time.

Try Helping

How do so many
just go on their way
and leave so many
in trouble each day?
How do so many
just ignore the view
as they continue
to do as they do?
How do so many
keep on as they stride
when they know truly
we know they have lied?
There are so many
that just act insane
leaving so many
with so much to gain.
Let Jesus help you
to find how to be
and then try helping
maybe someone like me.

Maybe The Dream World

Wages of dreamers
are ventures to gain
that maybe someone
may think that’s insane.
A dreamers forte
is greater to find,
for in a good dream
there is peace of mind.
Wages of dreamers
are blessings to be
yet in the real world
may yet have to see.
So be a dreamer
and don’t let it die.
Let the good dreaming
to help you get by.
Maybe the dream world
will turn oh so true
if it is something
that you are to do.

I’ll See Blessings

Winter is leaving
with footsteps each day
as it makes white snow
to just melt away.
Winter has weakened
and left in its wake
springtime’s conclusion,
there is no mistake.
Springtime is blooming,
yet slowly to be
as I watch each day
and see what I see.
Here and there blossoms
are making the scene
as they paint pictures
of coming of spring.
Soon will be summer
and fall will return
and I’ll see blessings
I’ll surely discern.
Then winters moments
will come and display
snow again falling
on most every day.

for May 1,  2009

Heavy are burdens
if they are carried inside.
Let Jesus have them.

Learning is rhythm.
Time is the crescent wrench
that connects each beat.

Too many heartaches
make for a cold heart to grow.
Let time warm your heart.

Witness a flower
as it blooms deep in springtime.
It’s God’s Hands at work.

A flowing river
carves pictures in its journey
as patterns in time.

A moments second
connects minutes to today
as time moves along.

A waterfall flowing
cascading over the way
has its own beauty.

Jumbled up people
in their worries so endless
can find peace in God.

Now in my vision
I can find myself gazing
at another day.

Tomorrow’s not here
so let today be what’s seen.
Keep clear your focus.

The hard times will come,
yet they will most surely pass.
Let time run its course.

Marks on some paper
might be the very essence
that display anger.

Sometimes a meaning
gets itself lost in our words.
Let actions speak loud.

Glass hearted souls
might break if not careful.
Let God to mold you.

Learn to be patient
as the hands of time move on.
Take care of right now.

Much of a sear
is a sight that’s mistaken.
Your sight could be wrong.

Turning too quickly
the pages of your lifetime
might leave you perturbed.

Efforts of many
give the blessings greater chance
to fulfill Gods will.

Look at your shadow
and watch how it follows you.
You are its keeper.

Each step that you make
leaves a footprint in many
no matter how far.

Hang on to your life
even if bad times are today.
Life is a great thing.

A storm in the mind
makes it hard for a moment.
Let Jesus give peace.
