ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

So what’s shaking around your part of the world? The
weather up this ways has been a tad weird. We had yet
another tornado hit just 20 miles north of us the other
day. Not a bad one, but it did injure a few up further
north where it began. I haven’t heard of anyone dying
due to it. There was one of our facebook buddies that
was out in the field in Littleton ME watching the tornado
touching down in Monticello ME which is about twenty
miles away north of us. He video taped it and up loaded
it to Facebook hehehe. Apparently he was out there
just drinking some beer and then got the life scared out
of him as he watched the tornado form just a few miles
away from him. Anyways, other than that, we got a
bit more rain and expecting some more maybe Tuesday
or Wednesday. Today’s high is supposed to be around
74F degrees. Right now at 9:48 AM it’s 61F degrees.
It’s supposed to be partly sunny today. So that’s great.
Right now I have a terrible headache that has been with
me all night long. I took all that I’m able to take and it
will not leave me. I guess I will have to just let it wear
off hehehe OUCH. Judy’s still asleep. I’ll wake her up
when I finish this journal. So onto another topic. We’re
still hoping and waiting on either her unemployment to
kick in or Social Security Disability. the SSD would be
the best option, because her health has gone down hill
being that’s one of the reasons she was laid off along
with the fact that they closed down the Elm Tree North.
They still have the diner, but they could not use all the
people from both places which is understandable. Judy
was already having trouble making it just part of the
day due to her health. So keep us in your prayers for
a miracle. Living on my SSD isn’t quite cutting it, but
we’re surviving. Just can’t afford prescriptions or any
other doctor item until something falls in place. I did
buy her antidepressants being they were only 4 dollars
at WalMart, but the rest will have to wait. I pray to
God that the wait isn’t much longer. Anyways, off of
that topic and onto another. Judy and I have been
doing our everyday routine of watching our favorite
TV programs, playing our hidden object games and
going for walks together and taking pictures. We’re
not able to drive around and take pictures being we’re
having to conserve on gas as much as possible. OK
so that’s about it for up here in Maine at the Pearce’s.
Ain’t we exciting!!! Hehehe yea right. Well what do
ya expect from two old people LOL? I may be only
54 but my bodies emulating a 100 year old hehehe.
Yet I will be 55 next month, YIPPY, not. I know
I might complain sometimes, but the fact is, that
God has always seen to my needs, our needs. Yes
it may seem at times that He has forsaken us, but
in the battle He expects us to do our part and He
then does the rest. Maybe not what we would of
wanted, but what He knows is best. Judy and I try
to keep the faith, but being human it has its weak
moments, yet none the less God does prevail. So,
are you having struggles in life? Let God help you
to be stronger. Hehehe ya know, it’s not supposed
to rain today, but I could swear I just felt raindrops
blowing in the window. Oh well, that’s life LOL.
I guess it’s time for me to begin my little visit back
through all that I’ve written here to that point of
my recollection to see if I can find a good word or
phrase that I can use for the title for today’s new
poem. So, it’s away I go to that place that I like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I found a
good title. Now let’s see what I can do with it.
Here we go……..

God Does Prevail

Storms might be forming
in timeless detail,
but surely through it
God does prevail.
There’s not a moment
that God cannot win,
for He’s much stronger
than life’s strongest wind.
Even when troubles
might seem much too large
you can be sure that
God will take charge.
Let Him to bless you
through His Only Son
and let Him help you
before it’s begun.
Say a little prayer now
for it will not fail
and let Jesus help you
for God does prevail.

So there ya go! I hope you enjoyed my rambling and
the poem. I do hope I didn’t bore ya to sleep hehehehe.
Well there isn’t much else to say other than the usual.
It’s warmed up a tad since I started writing this hehe.
It’s 64F degrees now. I know, it’s not quite as warm
as it is south of us. Wish I could send a little rain and
cooler temps to my friends and family down south. If
I could I would. I want to thank all my friends and
family for sending prayers to my sister in law Barb.
God is giving miracles. It looks like they caught the
cancer before it took hold. She’s still not out of the
woods, but it’s looking a lot better. Thank you God.
Also I want you send a prayer to my mom. She’s
having life issues that are getting her down. We
talk on the phone almost every day. I try my best
to cheer her up, but often it’s me that’s needing a
little cheering up. Hey, I get depressed, I’m human!
Here lately Judy and I have been down in the mouth
over finances, but I’m sure it will get better. OK,
so 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 2 of em
being wintry/Christmassy styles. Also 22 more
haiku for all my haiku lovers out there. I hope
that you enjoy a few of them. So I guess it’s time
for me to be searching for that old 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 freaking off switch. Found it in
in the fridge behind the Pepsis just hanging out.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Now Has Dawned

A sunny day
amidst July
now displays
across the sky.
Now has dawned
another day
which was spawned
from that of gray.
Another day
is now in session
so to soon
be in recession.
Soon the evening
will be found
dark of night
of sight and sound.
A sunny day
will then be gone,
but return
in mornings dawn.

Rhythms

Where are rhythms
when they flare
from the dark
of I don’t care?
Why do rhythms
of that style
always seem
to have no smile?
Often rhythms
of perception
have a need
for much correction.
Often people
will be found
with their rhythms
not so sound
as their rhythms
fade away
when so many
cease to pray.

Changing Views

Inner feelings
find a place
with the feelings
of God’s Grace.
Yet some feelings
found inside
are what many
have denied.
Times emotions
can be found
sometimes seen
in great astound.
Other times
of inner sight
are with much
remembered fright.
Many times
that came about
are what caused
them all to doubt.
Inner feelings
they can change
with ones help
to rearrange.
Changing views
on now and then
while they’re seeking
God agin.

Not Gone From Mind

The radio’s playing
tunes I know
as remembered
long ago.
Times distorted
find a way
to encompass
now today.
All the music
heard so clear
reminds me now
of yesteryear.
When I was younger
then and there
I was found
where none compare
The reflecting pool
of timeless ages
seemed to turn
so many pages.
Now I find
I’m older now
with those tunes
that times endow.
As those tunes
play on and on
I remember
time that’s gone.
Yet of course
not gone from mind,
for they live
from time to time.

The Greatest Sights

While awaiting
sun to shine
I just sat
with nights design.
Watching stars
to fade away
with the dawning
of the day.
My mind adrift
the moments sight
found the joy
in day and night.
All the changes
found in frame
have no reason
to explain.
They are minutes
passing true
bringing me
a different view.
So if you’re just
seeing phases
look again
at what amazes.
See how God can
change the sky
and make birds
within it fly.
Seek to find
the greatest sights
which that come
from days and nights.

Thens Christmas Way

A long time ago
in mornings dew
I was enjoying
a different view.
A time far away
with dusty trails
remembered in
some great details.
Times of Christmas
said and done
from a distant
mornings sun.
A long time ago
in wintertime
I was young
with not a dime.
Dreaming of Santa
and that joy
of me receiving
my favorite toy.
A Tonka truck
of my desires
lit my yearning
Christmas fires.
A long time ago
is now just a day
that I remember
thens Christmas way.

That Frown

Looking now
I see a frown
that just somehow
came around.
Somehow it just
came in view
and evolved
to something new.
Now that frown
that I displayed
brought some troubled
times to wade.
Looking now
I see a light
that I needed
through the sight.
Now that frown
is gone away,
because I then
began to pray.
Jesus came then
with His smile
that which grew
beyond that while.
Looking now
the moments passed
leaving just a
shadows cast.

They Are You

Peoples heartbeats
beating true
may not see the
same as you.
Often viewpoints
found in frame
are just portions
of the same.
Maybe different
in a way,
yet they both see
day to day.
The times perceived
through their eyes
may just seem
as many lies.
Look much closer
at the view.
You might find that
they are you.

Tomorrow’s Journey

Through tomorrow
comes a time
found in place
of nows design.
Tomorrow’s journey
starts right now,
yet we often
know not how.
Sometimes footsteps
made unknown
make the rhythms
of the tone.
With tomorrow
held in place,
right now needs
some Jesus Grace,
For tomorrow
is not here
and we can not
see it clear.
Let Lord Jesus
have it true
as today
is in your view.

It Has Come True

Right now a dream
is coming to mind
of that of winters
wondrous design.
I now am seeing
a memories view
found in my dreams
wished to be true.
Right now that dream
is growing inside
of a great moment
time had applied.
That timeless moment
of my yesterdays
now seems a journey
found in a maze.
Winding around
in wintertime’s fashion
I recall Christmas
with oh so much passion.
Right now this dream
is more than a thought,
it’s a mere moment
that Lord God had bought.
Through His Own Son
He bought us a way
given with hopeful
when we kneel and pray.
Right now that dream
of a wonderful hue
makes me realize
that it has come true.

Haiku
for July 23, 2011

A journey within
might lead to too much despair.
Prepare for the trip.

Many see different
the ins and outs in each day.
We’re all different.

A left foot and right foot
brings the shadows of footsteps
throughout our journey.

Placing a heartbeat
where it’s not appreciated
could end in demise.

A clocks ticking hands
will go around and around
leaving things undone.

Jesus brings hopeful
to the plates of those hopeless
and shows them a smile.

Painting a portrait
begins with a mere moment
and then with someone.

Lessons are displayed
as echoes of yesterdays
that we may have failed.

Portions of our thoughts
might pour out as a river
into a deep ocean.

Hearing the thunder
brings attention to lightning
that thunder came from.

A moments minute
may seem as mere seconds passed,
but be a full hour.

Summertime’s headway
makes its journey through today
leading to autumn.

Winter will return
with its many snow filled days
of glistening white.

Searching for true love
could find you devastation
if not sought through God.

The endless summers
do in fact come to an end
as winter appears.

Glancing at someone
might not get the full picture,
so then look again.

A new age has come
leaving yesterdays shadows
as footprints of time.

Seeing a storm cloud
does not guarantee some rain.
It just says maybe.

Flapping a feather
and trying flight like a bird
could cause you to fall.

Effortless moments
are found in times of trouble
when least expected.

A book with pages
may have no words within it.
Just awaiting thought.

Noon comes after dawn
bringing evening to follow
as things come to life.
