Don’t Worry, Be Happy


Hello my friends

How has your weekend been? Ours has been on the
soggy side being it’s rained most every day. My weather
programs on my PC say that it’s supposed to rain every
single day this week. Today’s high is supposed to be in
the upper 60’s. Right now at 12:42 it’s 61F degrees and
yes raining. I tried to put Benny outside so he could go
potty, but he said no way dude. I couldn’t push him
out the door hehehe. He decided to hold it as long as he
can I think, but me thinks he might have to go out there
whether he likes it or not pretty soon hehehe. I could see
him squirming, but for now, he has laid in here in the
floor behind me. I called my mom last night and was
sitting in the recliner in the living room talking to her
when Benny decided he wanted to sit in my lap and so
he hopped right on up and began kissing/licking me :).
I said Benny OK knock it off, I can’t talk to my mom
while your doing that hehe. I don’t know why he likes
me so much 🙂 I torment him with baths, haircuts and
also slight spankings when he does wrong hehehe. I
guess he knows they’re for his own good. OH yea :),
I also wrestle with him a lot hehehe. Judy’s finally
gotten to where she wrestles with him often. I told her
that she needs to do it also, being I’m POOPED quite
often hehehe. Now he has two play mates. Benny’s
still laying down there in the floor comfy cozy. I had
a thought that maybe he had done a naughty and went
potty in the house, but I turned on the bedroom light
and looked and nothing. He can’t get into any other
part of the house at night being we put up the guard
fence, so he’s holding it in. He loves snow, but hates
rain hehehe. Go figure! He hasn’t yet seen the mass
of snow that we get up here being we didn’t get him
until March 10 of this year in the lesser of the snow
season. Yet, he did get to see a lot of snow hehehe
compared to what he might of seen before. There
was still a lot of snow and plus it was still snowing
pretty much every other day on into April. I talked
to our little neighbor boy yesterday and he told me
they sold the little dog that they were keeping for
their grandma, being her health was getting too bad
to be able to take care of it. So sad, but hopefully
it went to a good home. Yet I feel sad for grandma,
because I could tell when I saw her that she really
loved Buddy. Yeppers, that was his name. Buddy
was a Shih Tzu and apparently had just recently
gotten a hair cut hehehehe because he looked a lot
like Benny aside from the curly hair hehehehe and
being black. None the less, Benny doesn’t whine to
see him anymore. He didn’t really seem to care for
Buddy for some reason, but would look out the
back door when he was outside. Yet when I let him
outside, Benny would stay in the front of our home
and never want to go to the back to visit Buddy.
Really weird hmmmmm. Oh well, I guess dogs
can be picky about who they are friends with the
same as us LOL. I guess it’s time to move on to
another topic. Judy is still asleep and I would be
asleep if my dear bowels and my arthritis would
let me, darn it 🙁 Oh well, I guess I’ll survive 🙂
Oh yea, just to set the records straight hehehehe
we don’t actually go to bed until around 5:00 AM
or thereabouts and often don’t turn off the TV and
try to go to sleep until around 6 hehehe so Judy
still being in bed isn’t because she’s lazy. The fact
is that we were both night owls when we met. I
had worked night shift for many a decade and
always slept during the day. Judy worked in the
evening shift at Elm Tree diner so she too would
stay up most of the night LOL. She also worked
the nightshift at Whataburger in Greenville Texas
where we lived, but when we moved up here, she
ended up taking a job at the Elm Tree again on
the day shift which sort of messed us both up hehe.
So now that she is retired the same as I, we both
have gotten back to our normal habitat of sleeping
during the day and getting up in the afternoon or
thereabouts to eat breakfast LOL. It’s still raining
outside. Hehehe, thank God it ain’t raining inside.
Benny would be in a horrible mess hehehe. Well,
hmmm what have we been up to? All I can think
of is the regular day to day stuff. Oh yea, Judy
and I went over Barb’s (Judy’s older sister) for her
surprise birthday on the 18th. We had a great time,
but had to leave Benny at home, because they’ve
got two female Siberian Husky’s and we thought
Benny might cause a scene, but maybe next time
we go, we might bring him to see how it works.
Well, Benny heard Judy get up and he went to
see what she’s doing. Now, both Judy and I took
Benny to the front door for yet another chance
at going outside to potty. Judy put his new little
purple raincoat on him and I sat him outside on
the top step. He didn’t wanna go outside in the
rain hehehe. But he’s now down the steps and
maybe get it over with LOL. Hehehehe, Judy’s
getting dressed and donning her raincoat so she
can go out there with him. She thought that he
might be more apt to go potty if she’s out there
in the rain with him LOL. We shall see hehehehe.
Well, maybe this time I’ll make it to another
topic and not bounce back to the old hehe. Here
at the Pearce’s Place we have still been doing all
of our regular stuff such as goof around on all of
our FarmTown farms on Facebook. We’re still
waiting for them to give us another farm hehehe.
14 just isn’t enough LOL. OK back to Benny 🙂
Judy just ran in here to grab her camera so she
could take some pictures of Benny in his new lil
purple raincoat that she bought him hehehehehe.
She said, “he looks so cute”! Well, as you can
tell by my writings, God has given us blessings
through Benny. God gives us each one blessings,
but often we will overlook them due to our blind
eyes searching the wrong areas of our lives and
letting greed to infiltrate our chances for a smile.
See the simplest blessings in life and you might
then find the greater ones beyond that. Don’t let
wanting for others blessings to prevent you from
seeing your own that God has given you. Often
they are right in front of our face and other times
we might need to turn around to see them, due
to us being headed the wrong way. Find the joy
in life through Jesus. Let His blessings shine as
the sun in your life. Don’t let sadness to envelop
you and exist with you every day. Of course you
will have sadness, but it’s with sadness that we
can see the good times even more clearly if we
will just take the time to look. As the song goes,
“Don’t Worry, Be Happy” hehehe. Well I guess
it’s time for me to begin my search for the title
for today’s new poem, so it’s away I go to that
place of my recollection through all that I’ve
written here for some word or phrase that might
work. So it’s off I go to that place that I like to
call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I may have
found a good title, but we shall see hehe LOL.
Here goes………..

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Don’t let the sad times
overtake you.
Search for the goodness
within your view.
Don’t worry, be happy
about now today
and let all your sadness
to just drift away.
Don’t let the darkness
to be all you see.
Let Jesus shine on
with His love for free.
Don’t worry, be happy
and just shout and sing
about all of God’s love
in every blessing.
Don’t let the bad times
to just wear you down.
Don’t worry, be happy
and let loose that frown.
Find you a smile
that can brighten the day
and watch all the sadness
to just fade away.

OK so I hope ya enjoyed my rambling and maybe even
the poem hehehe. Don’t ask me how I end up writing
certain poems. I just see a title or something in my view
that gives me a thought and I start writing. Like when
I sit down to write all of my poems and haiku. I never
have an idea of what I will write. I just begin writing
as a title comes to mind. LOL often I’ve gotta check to
make sure I haven’t already used the title, being I’ve
written over 7000 poems hehehe and over 500 of those
are Christmas poems LOL HoHoHo. So yes, at times
I have trouble coming up with a title that I haven’t used
already 🙂 It’s still raining and yes Benny is back in the
house and NO he did not go potty because it was raining.
Judy put down the potty board with puppy paper on it,
so maybe if he has to go too bad, he will use that hehehe.
I sprayed it with puppy training spray to let him know
that he can use it if he wants to, but we shall see LOL.
None the less he’s right beside me now laying in his
little bed fast asleep. So I reckon it’s time for me to be
telling you what I tell ya every single week and that is,
I wrote some more poems and haiku. Yeppers 10 more
poems with 2 of them being Christmassy HoHoHo hehe.
Also once again, I wrote 22 more haiku for all my haiku
lovers out there. Ok with that said I guess I need to be
searching to find that confounded off switch, but not
before I wish you a most wonderful God filled week.
Remember, Jesus loves you and we do too. Now to
find that off switch that just loves to play hide and go
seek with me LOL. Found it, hiding behind Benny 🙂
trying to make as if it’s just a measly fur ball hehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Oh yea, one poem is about Benny hehehe
Figure out which one if ya can LOL

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

The Day Has Ended

When morning comes
the day begins
with sometimes
a few south winds.
Yet sometimes
when morning comes
there’s just heat
from summers suns.
When new arrives
the day is found
with its flavors
sight and sound.
Birds a chirping
flying too
as they do
what all they do.
When evening shines
it’s last details
before the night
is in its sails
summers sunset
comes to be
with its sights
for all to see.
Then as nightfall
finds its place
the day has ended
with God’s grace.

Weathered Doorways

Weathered doorways
entered through
sometimes leave
a bitter view.
Withered from
the days ago
filled with heartache
to and fro.
Times remembered
that we’ve seen
some are nightmares,
some a dream.
Weathered doorways
we remember
may be as a
burning ember.
Things we’ve done
throughout our time
that now live
as bad design.
Reflect on all those
many views
and see how you’ve
paid your dues.
Sometimes choices
that we’ve done
are riddled bullets
from a gun.
Use the lessons
that you found
through what all
that came around.
Weathered doorways
will still be
now and then
through history.
Yet those doorways
prayed on through
will show better
things to do.

Living Memoirs

With remembered
times and places
some are found as
living faces.
Living memoirs
within view
with the things
we say and do.
Many memoirs
seen around
may not have a
single sound.
They might be
so silently
what all that we
only see.
Living memoirs
said and done
found repeated
in someone.

Painted Flowers

Summertimes colors
might seem out of phase
when they are painted
with many greys.
Sometimes just seeming
as painted flowers
often the summertimes
lifetime empowers.
Then all the colors
of red, blue and green
come into view then
as a sweet dream.
Painted emotions
found within view
summertimes colors
display a hue.
Maybe just flowers
of colors divine
are what you see
for your summertime.
So let the colors
to flow as they will
as they are painted
to surely fulfill.

The Day’s Begun

The times arrived
with blessings true
along with choices
of what to do.
The day’s begun
with peeking light
seeping through
the end of night.
A page is turned
with new detail
for new things
you can set sail.
The dawn of day
is found at ease
with the wind
that blows a breeze.
The day’s begun
with now and then
so awaken
and begin.

Like A Feather

Withered troubles
can be found
as a feather
on the ground.
It’s the viewpoint
in our flurry
that makes time for
all our worry.
Like a feather
you should float
without worry
in your boat.
So let Jesus
fill that place
with His Love
and saving Grace.
Then you’ll be just
like a feather
floating peaceful
through the weather.
Yet sometimes
you’re worried mind
will return
from time to time.
It’s those moments
that you should
seek for Jesus
and what’s good.

Christmas Wishing

Now this moment’s
as I’m watching
its design
and while watching
I am found
wishing Christmas
was around.
Christmas wishing
daily true
as I sit here
summers view.
Now the seasons
bring us rain
and I hate to
just complain,
but the rain just
seems to fall
on and on
and over all.
I wish Christmas
would get here
with my favorite
time of year.

Little Footsteps

Throughout time
I hear the sound
of my puppy
on the ground.
Little footsteps
with a bark
as our puppy’s
in the dark.
We will call him
and he comes
with his paws
as beating drums.
Running quickly
with his smile
that he seems with
all the while.
Little footsteps
seem to flow
and bring joy
to all we know.

Dreams of Winter

Shadows remembered
as echoes recall
bring me the dreams
that come after fall.
My dreams of winter
found in my mind
also display the
best Christmastime.
Times of my childhood
so long ago
I can remember
cans of white snow.
We lived in Dallas
with Christmas of green
being that’s all that
I’d ever seen.
So my dear parents
would do it right
with a few cans
of snow then of white.
Then for our Christmas
we would each sing
of what the season
did surely bring.
My dreams of winter
now still exist
living as moments
now surely missed.

Green Leaves Blowing

With summers winds
comes shadows bestowing
that of the sights of
green leaves blowing.
Patterns are forming
here there around
as sometimes shadows
found on the ground.
Green leaves blowing
might seem to say
that it’s a wonderful
summertimes day.
Listen to the rustle
as the breeze blows
and hear the sounds
of which it bestows.
The many blessings
of time after time
might be of green leaves
blowing so fine.

Sometimes a lifestyle
is only but a mirage
of wanted value.

Pretending to fly
is ok stood on the ground,
but might hurt if not.

Letters rewritten
might have a misconception
of what that they meant.

Truth found in shadows
leaves often sadness prevailed
that was hid away.

Corresponding times
might just look sort of alike
and not be fitting.

Anger management
comes in forms of true patience
and not acting out.

Some are idiots
trying to act like they’re smart
and don’t wish to learn.

An echo of you
lives as things people repeat,
so watch what you do.

Answers to questions
will often bring more questions
for many to ask.

Returning patterns
might be due to a relapse
of certain choices.

Today can be great
if begun with a big smile
that others can see.

With thens memories
you can enlighten today
and make it better.

A little raindrop
dispenses its living force
unto a flower.

Some seen as clumsy
might just be their cautiousness
causing their stumbling.

Swinging from a branch
could land you in deep water
if you’re not ready.

Demanding factors
often lead ones to their doom
when they’re not prepared.

A simple fragrance
can brighten a gloomy day,
so smell a flower.

A sight that is seen
can be a mistaken moment
if in the wrong light.

Pleasing a person
needs first to know the reason
and if it’s worth it.

Beyond what we see
is a glimmer of our dreams
sometimes well hidden.

Many conclusions
are just our misconceptions
of what we thought true.

Summertimes raindrops
bring us sweet breezes that blow
and cool off the day.

My Dad


Hello my friends
to all the dads out there

It’s another beautiful day up here with a high of 72F degrees
which it is right now. It’s supposed to get a little bit warmer
starting Wednesday. Maybe 79F degrees then a little warmer
Thursday and Friday to the lower 80’s, but supposed to drop
back down to the upper 60’s and lower 70’s after that with a
few showers here and there. Not too bad huh! Well I guess
I’ll see if I can find anything to talk about hehehe. Benny has
been wearing his new sunshades and cap quite often and he
looks really cute in them. I bought the shades mainly for him
to wear during wintertime so he doesn’t go snow blind hehe.
When we got him last March, he spent most of his time with
his eyes squinted because of the suns reflection in the snow.
He’ll be 1 year old this coming July. We’re gonna get him a
little doggy birthday cake of some sorts hehehehe. He’s our
little boy. We let him out a hour or so ago for him to go to
the bathroom and he’s still outside. I may let him back in
when I find a good place to stop writing. Heck, Judy might
let him in when she wakes up. LOL, if I let him in before she
wakes up he’ll jump on the bed and begin with his kisses to
mommy until she wakes up. Judy let him out, but before
he went out he jumped up on the bed and drowned me with
doggie kisses 🙂 Can’t sleep through that hehehehe. There
hasn’t been much of a change around the house. Judy and
I walk Benny on a leash to the mailbox and back to check
the mail most every day when of course it’s not raining 🙂
Benny likes to play tug of war with his leash hehehe. Judy
gets pulled along behind him as he tries to look and smell
of every little thing and go everywhere LOL. Yeppers he’s
our baby. Judy and I are still busy with all of our farms
in FarmTown on Facebook every day. We’re waiting for
them to add another farm for us to buy hehehe. They’ve
added more facilities, but I ain’t got no place to put them,
so I need another farm and so does Judy. Yes, I know,
we’re BORING, but we enjoy life and being together.
Soon we’ll be taking off in the car to take pictures around
the countryside. I’m sure Benny will be with us most of
the time. After all, we’ll want to get him in some of the
pictures hehehe. I went over to our neighbors house late
Friday night after their son Julian sent me a message via
Facebook saying come on over Bill, we’ve got a big fire
going. I brought my little bongos over and they all took
turns trying to play them LOL. I played them a while and
Truman the youngest asked, how can you move your
hands so fast hehehe. I told him I had been playing the
drums especially the bongos and conga drums since I
was about 6 or 7 years old. When I went into the first
grade and in music class they let us choose which of the
instruments we wanted to play, I chose bongos, being
I was driving my mom and dad crazy with my always
beating drum beats on the furniture at home hehehehe.
Anyways, we had fun at the bonfire, but I had promised
Judy I wouldn’t be gone long and when I returned home
I was greeted by Benny trying to climb up my legs to give
me a kiss. When I headed to the computer room through
our bedroom, Benny hopped up on the bed and tried to
grab me with his paws to pull me close and lick/kiss me.
LOL he is sooooooo cute! He missed me 🙂 I can’t even
imagine how he would react if either Judy or I were gone
for a day or longer LOL, but that ain’t happening, at
least to my knowledge. Only God knows the time that
I am to leave this Earthly body and be with my dad and
all that have gone before me. I made a promise to Judy
and Benny that my spirit would always be watching over
them. Benny will know, being dogs are more alert to
things that we never see. I know my dads spirit is here
looking after Judy and I as well as my mom and sister
Peggy. Heaven is not the end, but the beginning of yet
another journey in a life that is forever. God’s love is
so very great that He gives us each one a chance to
change our lives around and meet His Son. None of
us will ever know the true expanse of Heavens joy until
we get there. Until that day we can only dream of its
glory. Let God show you the footsteps that you are
to take through your conscience. Don’t dilute your
conscience with drugs or alcohol, for if you do, you
will regret it. I’m not saying it’s wrong to drink, but
I am saying if you do, you need to do it in moderation.
Find God’s blessings in life as you open your eyes to
the things that you might of been overlooking before.
Now I think it’s time once again for me to be taking
my little journey back through all that I’ve written here
to see if I can find a good word or phrase that might
work well 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. Hmmmm
it looks like I may of found a good title just a little ways
back. So now, let’s see what I can do with it.

My Dad

Timeless stories
now survive
my dad told me
while alive.
Things remembered
pages turned
are the stories
I’ve discerned.
My dad surely
loved me true
in the things
he’d say and do.
He still loves me
now today
in his spirit
bodied way.
My dear daddy
truly shows
love remembered
through echoes.
Echoed love
beats lessons true
while my dad
still stays in view.
Now I vision
Fathers day
here with my dad
every way.
He is always
here with me
with his love
through history.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling as well as maybe the poem.
I was on about the next to last line of the poem when I heard
the door being struck by Benny hehehe. Judy let him back in
and he was anxious to see me. Judy opened the door and he
came running in jumping up to kiss/lick me ALL OVER hehe.
I guess that was his way of saying Happy Fathers day daddy.
He is such a sweetie. I wrote yet another Fathers Day poem
yesterday and sent it to my mom and sister to share. I made
it up into a picture to be printed out and hung. Peggy said
I said everything in the poem that she would’ve ever wanted
to say. I truly love my dad and he will always be with me in
his spirit and in my heart. I see his eyes looking back at me
when I look in the mirror and they are smiling 🙂 Well I guess
it’s about time for me to tell you what I tell you every week
and that is, I wrote some more poems and haiku. Yet this
time I wrote 12 poems but only gonna share 11 of them being
one of them is an anniversary poem I wrote for my friends
Ben and Diane Geurts. They have gone out of their way to
make sure that Judy and I are OK and have become as our
family. None the less I am posting the 11 which one of the
poems is the Fathers Day poem I wrote yesterday and also
the 3 Christmas poems I wrote along with all the others
Friday. Yes, I also wrote once again 22 more haiku for
all of my haiku lovers out there. So, that’s about it and
therefore it’s almost time for me to begin searching for
that confounded off switch that loves to play hide and seek,
but not before I wish you all a most joyful and blessed
week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we do too. Now,
to find that silly off switch. Found it laying down in the
floor with Benny trying to hide in his curly hair hehehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10+1 and 22 hehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Daddy It’s Now Fathers Day

Daddy I now think of you
each day as time goes by,
thinking of the things we’ve done
as time began to fly.
I wish I could be with you now
and we could talk and share,
but daddy I now always know
you’re here with love and care.
With your spirit standing close
as Jesus guides my day.
Daddy I’ll remember always
how you taught to pray.
Thank you for your guidance dad
and all that you did give,
for it’s with those lessons then
that help me now to live.
Daddy it’s now Fathers Day
and I think of you
and all the love you gave to me
through the things you’d do.
You gave wisdom day to day
to ones needing love
as you shared your daily gifts
that came from God ABOVE.
Thank you daddy for your gifts
and helping me to see
that God is greatest in my life
for Jesus died for me.

Find Through His Blessings

When a dark shadow
appears in your heart
search for God’s blessings
to tear it apart.
If that dark shadow
of timeless detail
reminds you of moments
of your living Hell
let Jesus shine on
with His love so bright
as He fills heartbeats
with Heavenly Light.
Find through His blessings
truth then and there
that shows the moments
that none can compare.
The greatest of blessings
from God’s Only Son
that have shined brightly
as they’ve begun.

Beyond Our Footsteps

Beyond our footsteps
actions will show
from all the moments
of then to and fro.
Building on segments
that we each have made
we might find blessings
found in the shade.
When troubles find you
look for a smile
beyond the moments
of which you compile.
Try to remember
what good that you’ve found
within your footsteps
of all there around.
Let Jesus help you
to see through the grey
and help you find your
blessings today.

Mornings Dew

Visions of sweetness
come in my view
when see dawning
of mornings dew.
Sweet drops of water
here there around
that seem to sparkle
when they are found.
All of these visions
come oh so clear
as I find summertime
year after year.
Sweet summers showers
come from the sky
as many blessings
to water what’s dry.
I find that summertime
has its own view
with many moments
of mornings dew.

Christmas Card

A sweet Christmas card

A sweet little letter

One Christmas moment
that’s found in a word
might be a blessing
your heart has heard.
A sweet Christmas card
that you found one day
might bring you blessings
of God’s wondrous way.
Use those sweet memories
that you have found

Sometimes An Angel

Can you hear angels
singing so great
as they encompass
our moments fate.
They’re all around us
watching and waiting
for God to give them
His designating.
If you will listen
you might hear singing
about all the blessings
through God’s everything.
Can you see angels
in seasons delight
in all your friendships
of each day and night?
Sometimes an angel
might truly transcend
and become someone

Another Summer Mile

Right now this summer
I now recall
that greatest season
that comes after fall.
It’s with my heartbeat
I now remember
Christmastime burning
as a sweet ember.
I find the blessings
alive and so well
thriving as Christmastimes
own living bell.
Right now this summer
beyond all the heat
I find the memoirs
of good that defeat.
Blessings of Christmastime
brought as a smile
that help me make it

Singular Seconds

Singular seconds
ticking in time
might disclose minutes
of moments design.
Singular seconds
of you and me
might end up being
all that we see.
Singular viewpoints
we thought so true
could just be echoes
of me and you.
Singular moments
we’ve stood to stare
might be reflections
that we just compare.
Singular seconds
minutes complete
might be the shadows
of our own feet.

A Christmas Thought

A Christmas thought
that time disclosed
might be what that
God’s proposed.
He might be just
telling you
what you’re needing
now to do.
A Christmas thought
that’s now so clear
might make better
for next year.
Sometimes thinking
thoughts of then
can help future
times begin.
A Christmas thought
that time has shown
might disclose
you need atone.

Shattered Windows

Sleepless nightmares
come to take
what our dreams
all wish to make.
Shattered windows
come in view
when we let them
become true.
Don’t allow the
shattered times
to grow as
nightmares designs.
Learn from heartache
that you seen
and then find
a better dream.
Shattered windows
you’ve looked through
can be lessons
within you.
Shattered windows
now and then
can make better
things begin.

Remembered Summers

Now as the wind blows
I’m looking sad
as I remember
what all that I had.
Sweet remembered summers
of decades ago
live in my memories
all that I know.
I find I’m saddened
by what I lost
when I ran quickly
with troubles I tossed.
Yet now the summers
of which I can see
bring to me happiness
given for free.
Yes remembered summers
will surely be found
when I look closely
at all there around.
Within a tree leaf
that floats in the breeze
I see the summers
of the tall Texas trees.
I recall blessings
of Heavens delight
as now remembered
of summers so right.

A moments thinking
can destroy what good you have
if you allow it.

Planting a seedling
doesn’t guarantee its growth
for you must water.

A little flavor
can either make good or bad
what you are tasting.

Senseless directions
leave mishap amidst their wake
filled full of regret.

A flowers journey
begins with a little seed
planted in the ground.

Today is a day
that allows us some changes,
for yesterday’s gone.

Posting some comments
might unknowingly cause pain,
so be real careful.

Living as your great
could explode right in your face
with times not so great.

Bringing a shadow
along for the ride through time
might disclose heartache.

Arrogant people
leave bitterness in their wake
as oceans of lies.

Scenes of passion
fill the minds of emotion,
but don’t be a fool.

Letting your yearning
to guide you blindly each day
might end in sadness.

Similar people
are not always connected
in the same journeys.

Today is a place
we often will have fear of
before it arrives.

Pools of problems
stand as turmoil’s stagnation
when we allow them.

While walking quickly
you might pass some great moments.
Take time to enjoy.

Leftover blessings
can enhance your tomorrows
that are needing smiles.

Mornings transgressions
can end with Lord God’s blessings
through a little prayer.

Times designations
needs some patience to get there,
so keep it on course.

Many find questions
as lifestyles masterpieces
filled with deception.

Within a mirror
there is often your own sight
that others don’t see.

Marking calendars
does not guaranty the truth
in new calendars.

God’s Love Goes Far


Hello my friends

So how’s life treating ya? It’s been fairly nice up this
way. The sun is shining and it’s 68F degrees with a nice
breeze. It’s actually partly cloudy, but then hehehehehe
that’s the way it is most every day up here so no complaint
from me. I’m just glad it’s not raining today. We might
go outside and play with Benny. He likes it better when
we go out with him. He don’t like it when we stay inside.
Yet, when he does come back in, he loves to wrestle and
play chase throughout the house hehehe. He’s gotten to
when he even barks time to time when he’s wanting us to
play with him. OK, so it’s onto maybe another topic LOL.
My mother bought her a WorxGT weed eater like ours.
I think she likes it. Both Judy and I love ours. It only
weighs about 5 or 6 pounds and it’s battery operated 🙂
Anyways, mom, I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoy
ours. There’s not much changed up here in our little tiny
corner of the world. Nope, Judy and I still do much of the
same stuff as always LOL. Yea I know, BORING hehe.
Hey, we’re retired on SSD, what do ya expect? It’s not
like we’re rich or anything hehehehe. Ok, we’re rich in
the status that we have each other and Benny as well as
we have God in our lives. Yes that my friends is richness
beyond anything that money can buy. Yes we bought
Benny, but money could not replace him and his love.
Benny is part of our family now, not just a measly pet.
He’s our little boy that we love without ending, just as
God loves us without ending. But God’s love goes far
beyond anything that we could ever possibly comprehend.
Yes we’re all sinners, for we make mistakes from the
time we awaken from sleep till the time we go back
to slumber. Even some of our dreams are comprised
of hidden sins of wanna. I know I have guardian angels
watching over me. Hehehe I say ANGELS, because
I don’t think one could’ve handled me hehehehehehe.
God knows who I am and all of my silliness and He
still loves me. Don’t ever think that just because you
have sinned, that you cannot find GRACE in Jesus.
It just takes a simple prayer, a simple word or a
simple thought and Jesus is there with forgiveness.
A long time ago, I thought I was not worth loving,
but God showed me that I was and He also exposed
my many talents and gifts that I could share with
the world. Yours might not stand out, but they are
none the less important. Find peace in today as you
find your blessings through Christ. Now I think I’m
needing to cease my incessant rambling hehehehe
and begin my search for a word or phrase through
all that I’ve written here that might work well 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 good title, but as they always say, the proof is
in the pudding hehehehe. Here goes…..

God’s Love Goes Far

With every little burden
comes hope where we are,
shining as a glimmer
of God’s Shining Star.
Things might seem hopeless
when time goes its way,
but blessings are given
when we kneel and pray.
Know minute nor moment
can be found alone
if you have Jesus
in your flesh and bone.
He will be with you
no matter where you are,
because He’s the essence
that God’s love goes far.
Seasons will blossom
with problems you see,
but surely you’ll make it
with His Grace for free.

Ok, so it ain’t one of my best poems LOL. I tried hehehe.
So, is there anything I’ve forgot to mention before????????
Not that I can think of. Of course that doesn’t mean that
I haven’t forgotten anything LOL, because ya know I must
have hehehe. Oh well, it must not be important or for that
matter I might think of it yet 🙂 None the less, 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, with one of them this time being a Christmas
poem hehe. Also I wrote once again 22 more haiku for all
of my haiku lovers out there. LOL oh yea, I wrote them
all once again this morning before I started the journal 🙂
Hehehe, hey, I have no set schedule for writing ya know.
I just write when the mood hits me and what that comes
into my mind as either memories or just mere thoughts of
mine that seem to always be poetic for some reason hehehe.
So, now it’s about time for me to be searching for that old
off switch that loves to play hide and seek almost the same
as Benny hehehe. But Benny likes me to hide and him try
to find me LOL. Oh well, before I begin searching for
that off switch I need to wish you a most wonderful God
filled week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now to find that off switch, not Benny hehehe. Found
it making as breeze that fell asleep hehehehehehehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Windy Morning

Breezes blowing
give and take
are well found
when I’m awake.
Windy morning
speaks its peace
with its dawning
times release.
Not a fragment
goes unseen
as I welcome
it extreme.
Windy morning
now and then
helps me daily
to begin.
With its blowing
there and to
I find blessings
so anew.

Now’s a dawning
new begun
with the sight of
mornings sun.
Now’s a glimmer
that can be
better than our
What we’ve surely
one day done
that can be a
better one.
Now’s a glimmer
given free
that God gave to
you and me.

As Remembered

Times of sorrow
well pronounced
sometimes become
days that bounced.
As remembered
sees tomorrow
as the echoed
times of sorrow.
Lose that sadness
that is found
and then see what
can abound.
You might find some
blessings seen
that are better
than a dream.
Let your sadness
just remember
all that’s found
one burning ember.
For the blessings
that you missed
might be found in
today’s list.

Summer’s Recall

Different settings
morning to night
become the flavors
found in my sight.
I recall winters
found so to see
filled up with snowflakes
sweet as can be.
Summer’s recall
sweet shadows cast
as that of winters
found in the past.
I see the pages
summer to fall
as that of stages
I now recall.
Now as the summer
fills up my mind
I can see hopeful
of sweet wintertime.

A Minutes Excursion

A minutes excursion
might be out of place
as just a wanting
not found in God’s Grace.
Sometimes a moment
might seem as so great
that you for wanting
just cannot then wait.
Our hurried minutes
can become our Hell
if we allow them
to always take sail.
Let not your wantings
to take firm control,
for you might find then
a real heavy toll.
A minutes excursion
might be dynamite
blowing up blessings
much better in sight.

Too Good To Be True

Sometimes a doorway
that we’ve entered through
looks at the moment
a real scary view.
It’s often fear of
what we do not know
that makes real scary
the doorways we go.
Let Jesus guide you
as you walk on in
as you pray surely
to stay within Him.
Sometimes a doorway
will have warning signs
written real clearly
as much better times.
If you are thinking
too good to be true,
then it most surely
might not be for you.

Thresholds Design

Found as a pothole
from our time to time
is but a glimmer of
thresholds design.
Often those gateways
so bumpy as hell
have many lessons
of which they can tell.
A thresholds design
might not have a key
and nor a doorknob
of which you can see.
Sometimes a threshold
is just but a phase
found in a moment
with horrific days.
So if you’re seeing
a thresholds design
make sure is God’s Will
and not a land mine.

Unanswered Questions

When you are weary
and needing some love
seek for God’s blessings
found from above.
If your are standing
with questions that grow,
let Jesus answer with
what you need know.
Unanswered questions
might be just too soon
for you to right now
to surely attune.
Often God’s answers
are not yes or no.
Sometimes they’re not now
for you then to know.
Sometimes unanswered
questions in phase
are God just waiting
for much better days.

Dreams of Christmas

Snowflakes in the distance
all falling with grace
seem to design
everything every place.
Sweet dreams of Christmas
come to me right now
with all the blessings
of which they endow.
White snow just floating
right down from the sky
as that of dreams
with a special reply.
Sweet thoughts of Santa
with right then and there
and most important
is God’s answered prayer.
My dreams of Christmas
come most every day
and I thank Jesus
as I kneel and pray.
Sweet dreams of Christmas
are mine now to hold
when times are troubled
and feeling so cold.
Thinking about Christmas
helps my every sight
when I am needing
some smiles day and night.
My dreams of Christmas
always keep me going
as I remember
that white fluffy snowing.
Flakes landing softly
on here there around
as they make pillows
of white on the ground.

A Gentle Heartbeat

A gentle heartbeat
beats a rhythm
that is love
which God has given.
Fragrant flowers
smell so sweet
as a gentle
ones heartbeat.
Simple moments
fall in place
giving ones a
smiling face.
A gentle heartbeat
beating true
might then find
a place in you.
Let your heartbeat
be so fine
as a blessing
in design.
Search the rhythms
in each beat
and see Jesus
oh so sweet.

Today is a breath
that Lord God’s breathed life within
and given chances.

Neither right nor wrong
can live without each other
for they give lessons.

Bringing a heartache
into a new tomorrow
can destroy chances.

Pieces of a life
are placed in secret places
with many ashamed.

Searching for true love
can land you in much trouble
if you look blindly.

Leaving a flower
un watered without sunshine
will cause its demise.

Winter’s remembered
as Christmas and God’s blessings
of Jesus His Son.

Soon ones tomorrow
will become their yesterday
filled full of regret.

Chain links that we’ve forged
could become Hell in disguise,
so make sure they’re good.

Finding a shadow
where there’s no reason for it
could expose a ghost.

Today’s bitterness
could bring about much sadness
in your tomorrows.

Forces of nature
come sometimes as decisions
along with results.

Handwritten letters
leave a fingerprint that’s found
as their emotion.

Many deceptions
come as the hopeful glimmers
that are not from God.

Pieces of summer
are spread about like butter
on our days ahead.

Beyond our thinking
are the thoughts we do not know,
that we think about.

Places we’ve been to
become pictures in our minds
that need no camera.

Summers beginnings
are the shadows of springtime
and glimmers of fall.

Tomorrows windows
are sometimes way too dirty
to see clearly through.

Knowing your limits
could prevent you from falling,
but then maybe not.

Listening to wind
as it blows its breath of air,
you might hear a voice.

Beginnings endings
will often share the same space
for a brief moment.

Then You Might


Hello my friends

How has your weekend been? Are you ready for the week
hehehe. It’s coming whether ya want it to or not! I hope
you’re not having too bad of weather. Ours has been fairly
decent. The high for the next few days is supposed to be
in the mid 50’s. That of course is Fahrenheit hehehe. if it
were Centigrade or Celsius as many know it, it would be
around 12C. Well, there’s not much new to talk about.
Judy and I spend most of our time nowadays playing with
Benny. We bought him some doggie sunshades and a red
doggie baseball cap hehehe. He likes them. He actually
didn’t want me to take the shades off and neither the hat.
We just got the hat Friday, so we haven’t yet to of put
them both on him at the same time LOL. He does look
cute in the shades as well as the hat though. Yeppers He
be our little boy. Neither Judy nor I can imagine our lives
without him now. He loves to play chase, but I can’t run
too well. None the less I try my best. The neighbors kids
came over Saturday and played with him. Benny loved
playing chase with them. Benny hasn’t had much to do
with his new little kiddy swimming pool yet, but I’m sure
that he will if the weather ever gets a bit warmer, which
I’m sure it will one day in the future LOL. It’s supposed
to rain all day today AGAIN. That’s life up here. When
it quits snowing it starts raining. If it ain’t one it’s the
other LOL. I have yet to of gotten any sleep. I’m hoping
to get this done and then go lay down with Judy for a bit
and then when she gets up later, to have her help me
fix all the typo’s. I’m sure there will be a bunch hehehe
being I’m so tired right now that it’s all a blur and I can
barely see what I’m typing. In any sense, I’ll get it done.
I wasn’t able to write all my poems and haiku yesterday
so I wrote them also this morning. So, you can figure that
this guys head hurts and is very tired hehehe. Ok, so it’s
on with the journal. Judy and I are still playing on all
of our farms at FarmTown on Facebook. Yep, we both
spend a lot of time doing that LOL. I know, BORING,
but that’s our exciting lives hehe. Yet now that Benny
has come into our lives, we spend a lot of time playing
with him and taking care of him. There’s not much else
to report from the Pearce’s Place 🙂 God has been still
watching over us and answering our prayers. Of course
in the way that He sees fit to answer them hehehe. We
don’t know what’s best for us, but He does, so He may
answer with either YES or NO. Let God decide what
that you need as you pray for only His Will to be done.
Leave your wannas in His Hands and He will make sure
that life is what it is supposed to be. If you step out of
His Will, then you might find yourself at the mercy of
your own stupidity. If you do, then ask God to show
you His Grace and Mercy through His Son. We will
surely have problems, because that is human, but we’ve
got God to help us through the problems if we will
seek Him. So I reckon it’s about time for me to take
my little venture back through all that I’ve written here
to see if I can find a good word or phrase that might
work for the title for today’s new poem. So it’s away
I go to that place of my recollection that I like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I found a good title.
Now let’s see what if anything at all I can do with it.
Here goes nothing 🙂

Then You Might

Now and then
your sight might see
things you thought that
could not be.
Surprising scenes
that fall in place
could become
a frowning face.
So with sight of
now and then
seek for help to
then begin.
Then you might see
how it’s done
with the help from
God’s Own Son.
Let God guide you
day and night
and you might learn,
then you might.

Ok so there ya go. I hope I didn’t bore ya too awful much
with my rambling and all hehehe. Also I hope that the poem
made at least a little sense to you. Well, I’ve gotta hurry
and get this journal finished so I can lay down. I’m having
trouble staying awake hehehe. So I guess I need to tell ya
what I tell ya every week and that is I wrote some more
poems and haiku which I already told ya earlier hehehehe.
Anyways, I wrote once again 10 more poems. Nope no
Christmas poems this week hehe. I also wrote 22 more
haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there. So, with that
said, I guess it’s about time for me to begin searching for
that freaking off switch that loves to elude me, but not
before I wish you all a most joyful and God filled week.
Remember, Jesus loves you and we do too. Now to find
that off switch. Found it laying in the floor with Benny.
Let go Benny hehehehehehe grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Nightmares View

Scenes within
a mind so blue
make sometimes
nightmares so true.
Through a heartache
that is seen
a nightmare shows
and not a dream.
Moments prosper
angers thriving
with the sleepless
times arriving.
It’s those minutes
gathered true
that portray
a nightmares view.
All those scenes
of which you find
weighing heavy
on your mind
need to seek
to find release
through forgiven
Jesus Peace.
Let your nightmares
leave your view
and find dreams

Whispers of Dawn

In but a glimmer
of the morning
dawn displays
a day a dawning.
Painted with time
some colors found
dawning with here
and there all around.
Daylights own shadows
fall then in place
as they are forming

Dispersing pages
turning with ease
with all the shadows

Pointless Issues

With often worry
comes seconds we weep
that often cause us
to have lack of sleep.
The pointless issues
of daily affairs
need to be followed
with Jesus and prayers.
Letting our worries
for minute details

with troublesome sails
will surely blossom

that is found daily
without any peace.

if it’s not then

Winters Windows

Scenes around me
now and then
seem as winters
blowing wind.
Yet it’s springtime
now attune
found in Maine
the month of June.
Winters windows
seem to be
opened still
so I can see.
I feel winds
of wintertime
as they flourish
in my mind.
Now I seek for

Things I Hear

I hear birdies
chirping singing
with the songs
of which they’re bringing.
Songs so sweetly
sung at night
found as echoes
without sight.
I hear winds that
blow the trees
as a moments
minutes breeze.
I hear silence
here and there
that gives time
for moments prayer.
Things I hear
are all around
sometimes found
without a sound.
Such as silence
in the day
that is heard
a peaceful way.
I hear blessings
left and right
in the day
and in the night.

Sometimes A Dream

Sometimes a thought
is what that is seen
when it is found
inside of your dream.
Sometimes a page
that turned in your mind
can make your dreams
as nightmares to find.
Sometimes a dream
of which you recall
is just a dream
and nothing at all.
Don’t let your dreams
to be all you see.
Look and see truth
and what it can be.
Sometimes a dream
can help you to breathe,

Leftover Thoughts

When now’s subsided
and then is displayed
leftover thoughts
can begin then to wade.
Scenes we remember
from thens yesterdays
we might so often
make now as displays.
Leftover thoughts
of minutes of time
might become heartaches
of nickel and dime.
So if you’ve carried
your leftover views
into a lifestyle
that is now the news,
you might then also
destroy every chance
of any blessings

Sweetest sunshine

finally here.

Simple Segments

simple sights

dark of nights.

of a minute
can create some

Simple segments
need God’s help

A life without prayer
leaves room for insanity
found in empty hearts.

In today’s journey
we may find some mysteries
that might stay hidden.

Playing a fools game
what you’ve already done
shows stupidity.

Leaving tomorrow
as just a chance encounter
could cause you problems.

The wage of hatred
brings more despair to be seen
that needs to be ceased.

Nobody’s perfect,
so why worry about it.
Be the best you can.

Life is some turnstiles
that many will continue
even if they’re wrong.

Long and winding roads
often end with confusion
or a dead end street.

The Earth as it turns
shows different points of views
that many don’t see.

Angers deception
brings trouble to the table
that time could prevent.

Yesterdays burdens
are as shadows in the wind
that many still seek.

Playing with fire
might start an enormous blaze
so leave it alone.

Systematic thoughts
prepared without permission
might cause some problems.

Letters to loved ones
often leave ones in wonder
of the true meaning.

A fraction of time
is spelled out with our actions
and then what we’ve said.

A minute till then
leaves hope still alive in time
for things to be changed.

The meanings of words
are sometimes interpreted
with the wrong meanings.

Just now a moment
left a pattern in today
you might remember.

A white point in time
found on a piece of paper
might not be correct.

Because of anger
many do what they’ll regret,
so take time to pray.

Blessings will arrive
when God sees they are needed.
Have a little faith.

Beyond a flower
is a bumblebee in flight
seeking its nectar.
