To Know Him

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How’s it going? It’s getting cooler up here every day. Winter
is seeming to be knocking real hard on the door. It got down
to 35F degrees last night. Today’s high is supposed to be 67F
degrees. Right now it’s 65F degrees at 12:46 PM. I’m getting
a late start on my writing today LOL. I felt like garbage when
I tried to write earlier, so I decided to wait until I felt a little
better before I started writing/typing. Still don’t feel great, but
I guess it’s as good as it’s gonna get today hehehe. The sky is
blue and it doesn’t look like we will get rained on today. Yet
it looks like we have a 30% chance of rain for tomorrow and
for the rest of the week, but 30% isn’t that high of a chance 🙂
Judy’s still in bed asleep. I’ll wake her when I finish writing.
Not much has happened up this way. The weather has been
nice. Judy and I are still playing our games together etc, etc.
Hehehe we live such a boring life. I did finally manage to
get us new tires on our car. The rear tires had wires poking
out of them and made that whirring noise as they rolled LOL.
Now the car runs smooth aside from the noise of the muffler
clamp rattling hehe. I wish I were in better shape. I would
jack the car up and fix it myself, but mechanics cost so much
and we can’t afford them. The tires costed $160 dollars and
that was enough. They were the cheapest they had that were
all weather tires. Of course that was the price of the labor
included LOL. That was for 2 tires. Thank God our front
tires are in good shape. I need to get the oil changed now,
but that will have to wait until I get paid again. Life goes
on hehehe. Now onto a different topic. Judy’s sister Barb
is doing OK, but the treatments are making her feel real
weak. Keep her in your prayers. My mom is loving high
speed internet. She finally got it. I was beginning to think
that she would never switch from 56K dial up hehehehehe.
There isn’t much going on up this ways. The days are each
looking more and more wintery as time moves along. Judy
is still on Unemployment benefits and hoping to get Social
Security Disability, but nothings changed so far. She has
an appointment with one of the SSD’s doctors in a week
or so that will determine whether or not she gets SSD or
not. Keep her and I in your prayers. God is in control.
Moving from day to day as time goes by, we can only
deal with the moments before us. I thank God for all
of the chances that He has given me throughout my life.
I have many regrets, but the fact is, that without the
time that has passed, today would not be possible at
all. We need our yesterdays to form today be it good
or bad. What’s viewed as bad in the past, might have
been lessons to use as tools for the future. It’s all how
we look at them. You can look with regret or look
with thankfulness that you survived and learned a few
lessons. I sometimes look for the humor throughout
my passed days. Some of the stupid things I did in
my past works as tools to find a smile in today when
things are not going so well. We’ve all done a few
dumb things that we’re not proud of. Not one of us
is immune to errors. That’s why God sent us Jesus.
For all of our many mistakes. Without Jesus, we
would have no forgiveness for our mistakes in life
and maybe never see Heaven. I’m sure that without
Jesus, I would end up in Hell. I’ve messed up a lot
in my days gone by and I still mess up quite a bit
while being human with imperfection. So do you
know Jesus? If not, why not? Do you think your
not worthy to know Him. He says come to Him as
you are and let Him change you. If I had waited
until I felt I was worthy, I would of never gotten
to know Him and possibly be dead as of today.
Ok, so I guess it’s time for me to stop preaching
and begin my little quest for a title for the new
poem of today. So it’s off I go to that place of my
recollection to try and find a word or phrase that
might work well for the title for today’s new poem
and that place is called RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I may have tripped upon a title that might
work well. Now let’s see if I can formulate a few
words in form of a poem using it LOL. Here goes.

To Know Him

Life will shine
if you know Him
and you’ll find
the greatest grin.
Yes to know Him
you will find
day to day
a calmer mind.
Yet of course
some trouble will
find you there
on windowsill.
Jesus Christ
is breath of air
through the troubled
seemed not fair.
Yes to know Him
you will see
better times
through history.
Yet of course
the times will tell
times that seem
as if they’re Hell,
but those times
of bittersweet
Jesus Christ
will help defeat.

I hope you liked that 🙂 Those PM’s that I took last
night are still sort of messing with me hehehehehehe.
My good eye is a bit more blurry than normal. Ok I
said last night, I meant this morning LOL, being we
didn’t finally go to bed until about 4 or 5 O’clock this
morning. We watched TV most of the night while
goofing around on our computers. There’s not much
that goes on around here that is SPECTACULAR 🙂
Nope, just little boring us hehe! So with that said
I guess it’s about time for me to begin my search for
that old off switch, but not before I tell 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 being of a Christmassy/wintery style
and I wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers
out there. Now it’s time for me to wish you all a
most wonderful God filled week. Remember, Jesus
loves you and we do too. Now to find that freaking
off switch. Hehehe it came in on Judy’s shoulder
when she walked in the room. She’s ALIVE hehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S. today is the anniversary of that tragic day
of 9 11 and the destruction that enveloped many
lives. May all those friends and relatives be with
blessings of love. Remember, God is in control.
We shall see those that departed when our days
on Earth have ended.

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

A Troubled Storm

A troubled storm
from faraway
might be found
as not so gray.
Sometimes seen
in different views
makes the day
some different news.
A troubled storm
that you once found
might just be
the needed ground.
Needed moments
there and then
might be God’s Own
guiding wind.
Leading places
from our stance
showing what’s
a better glance.
A troubled storm
from faraway
might be strength
another day.

Nickels Dimes

A simple time,
a simple place
might just be
a minutes grace.
A simple view,
a simple stance
might just be
a times romance.
Minutes floundered
might be seen
as a nightmare
not a dream.
A simple phase,
a simple thought
might change now
a simple lot.
Sometimes thinking
can become
as a simple
time so dumb.
Let the minutes
simple times
teach you what that’s
nickels dimes.

Tomorrow Will Be OK

Today’s a day
we might conclude
that it’s just
a times protrude.
Maybe moments
that we’ve found
are just echoes
all around.
Today might be
a time displayed
as just signs
mistakes we’ve made,
but today
can also be
a better sight
to choose to see.
Today’s a choice
of pages turned
giving way
for lessons learned.
Today’s a day
we need to find
filled with hope
and peace of mind.
Let tomorrows
not yet here
not be found
as just a fear.
For tomorrows
not yet done
need to be
when time’s begun.
Do your best
with now today
and tomorrow
will be OK.

Water Flame

The summers sun
is beating down
on the Texas
hard dry ground.
Bringing flames
from thereunto
in the Texas
every view.
The summers heat
is hotter still
bringing signs
of bitter pill.
Prayerful seconds
come in play
when so many
fall to prey.
The summers sun
is still so strong
that it shines now
oh so wrong.
Now ones praying
for some rain
fills the void
of time again.
There are many
other places
seeing life
of different faces.
Waters northward
gone askew
is so many’s
daily view.
So please Jesus
Lord on High
won’t you please now
peace comply.
Give the essence
of Your Name
making peace
with water flame.

Little Battery

Hey there little battery
won’t you please stay strong
so my camera now today
can then last real long.
I hate it when you peter out
when I need you most
and then all my pictures found
are just merely ghost.
Please now little battery
won’t you hold a charge
so that I can take a picture
of the small and large.
Hey there little battery
won’t you please comply
to keep a charge today
and not simply die.
I want pictures now and then
of my daily view,
so now little battery
won’t you please hold true.
Give to me the best you can
as the days arrive.
Let me get some memories
I can keep alive.

Daily Sights

A sky of blue
in mornings sight
brings the scenes
that I delight.
Clouds float in
with every view
in once then
a sky of blue.
The days begin
with sight and sound
flavored scenes
of all around.
A sight above
that floats on by
seems to make
the wondrous sky.
Even birds
that fly about
make the sky
to seem to shout.
Beautiful scenes
of daily sights
live within
the days and nights.

Years Begin

The years begin
with minutes born
then the story’s
pages torn.
Read as journals
years of words
many find they’re
flocks of birds.
Minutes flying
quickly by
leaving only
high and dry.
Then years move
to moments time
where there’s seen
their own design.
God is there
through thick and thin
when the stories
years begin.
Yet ones often
fail to see
Him right now,
just history.

Useless Submarine

Pointless anger
will become
as a useless
beating drum.
With its rhythms
beating true
hurting many
also you.
Many pointless
angered times
leave us with
so many crimes.
Let your anger
not be seen
as a useless
submarine.
Don’t let moments
just submerge
with your anger
of the urge.
Let God help you
more of then
and then anger
will not win.

Wintertime’s Dreams

Wintertime’s dreams
with Christmastime thoughts
comes into view
when snowflakes are tossed.
Blowing in the breeze
as wintertime’s frame
white snow will fall
with Christmastimes name.
So many wonders
are found in the days
found within wintertime’s
wonderful gaze.
Snowflakes of Christmas
come in with a smile
with children playing
with snow to compile.
Building up snowmen
with wintertime’s dreams
then it becomes as
some wonderful scenes.

Find Peaceful

Some find peaceful
in their minds.
Others find it
in some signs.
Some find portions
in their stance.
Others find it
in romance.
Some find peaceful
not so good
as it’s then
misunderstood.
Some find peaceful
in their heart.
Others find it
torn apart.
Some find peaceful
when they pray.
Others do not
day to day.
Let some peaceful
find you true
as you let God
live in you.

Haiku
for Sept 10, 2011

Somebody’s judgment
might be off just a little
and see you all wrong.

Time finds a purpose
as the scenes get more clearer
with the pages turned.

Looking for true love
might lead you in a circle
to someone you passed.

Trivial moments
get blown out of proportion
due to ignorance.

Buying a minute
leaves you paying for hours
for what could be done.

Staring at stardust
can make a dream to explode
with only wanna.

Today’s misfortune
might turn out to be good luck
hidden out of sight.

Unlucky people
might actually not be.
They might be viewed wrong.

A second that moves
makes a trail through each minute
that leaves memories.

Escaping shadows
is harder than you might think.
They’re there night and day.

Looking for Christmas
is done on through wintertime
when many seek snow.

Heaven holds wonders
that many will surely see
if they know Jesus.

Finding a turnstile
brings us some choices to make
to enter or not.

Becoming someone
needs be done with much caution.
Make sure it is you.

Heavy hearted times
brings despair to so many
that can’t let it go.

When said it’s easy
as riding a bicycle,
make sure you still can.

Nows scenario
could be lined with confusion
and you not see it.

As cramped styles arrive
search to find a happy place
to help you survive.

Yesterdays wisdom
was once someone’s ignorance
that helps us today.

Knowing a problem
is only part of the answer.
Learn to ask questions.

New forms of people
come and go as time goes by.
Don’t judge all the same.

When making faces
take a look in the mirror
and see who you’re not.
