Journeyed Through

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How have ya been? We’ve been doing pretty fair. Not had
any real devastating circumstances arise lately. I’ve had to
start using our radiator heaters though. It got down to 30F
last night and was in the low 30’s Friday night as well. It’s
not supposed to be that cold tonight. Maybe as low as 43F
degrees or so. Yet, winter is making itself known and dear
summer for what it was up here, is gone. I doubt we’ll have
anymore days above 70F degrees. I’ve noticed by my weather
program that Texas is finally getting a reprieve from the heat
and has also gotten a little rain here and there. Maybe that
will calm down the fires. I have a few friends that have lost
their homes due to the fires. Keep all of those that were so
unfortunate in your prayers as well as keep in prayer for all
of those that lost there homes due to other devastations such
as floods, tornadoes and earthquakes. So many have been
in path of destruction. Now, I guess I need to move along
with my rambling to another topic. Today is looking like it
will be a pretty day. The sun’s shining bright and it looks
like the rains have slacked off a bit thank God. We might
go out picture taking one day this week. Who knows, we
might even get some good shots LOL, especially if Judy
stops the car so I can look around a bit. It’s hard to get
good pictures out of a moving vehicle, but then that’s what
you have been seeing in the stationeries for a good while,
or at least those of you that receive this in the stationary
format hehehe. The only other pictures are ones taken
right outside our house. It’s a beautiful view, but it does
get old hehehe. Judy and I watched a TV program called
Fear Factor last night. Ugh, there was quite a few things
that I could not watch or listen to. They hit my fear factor
on the nail. YUCK!!!!! Hehehe anyways, for the most part
it was entertaining. There wasn’t anything else on that
we like or semi like to watch hehehe. Saturday nights are
lacking in good TV programs or at least ones that Judy
and I like to watch. We watched Worlds Dumbest until
it went off or they began showing ones that we had seen
very recently. Don’t mind ones that we haven’t seen in
a long time. Boy, don’t we live an exciting life hehehe!
We might have to go to WalMart soon, being we’re
running out of necessities. Sure wish we had a super
WalMart. There’s one in Presque Isle, but that’s like
50 miles away. Oh well, life goes on. Now it’s time
to switch topics. My sister in law Barbara is needing
your prayers. So far though, it seems the radiation
treatments and all are going to suffice in the cancer
removal, but she still needs your prayers, for if you
know anything about cancer, you know that it’s very
tricky and can turn. Pray that the cancer is removed
and her life is extended to a joyful God filled harmony.
I love ya Barb and I’ll always keep you in my prayers.
I know Judy is worried, but it’s looking like Barbara
will be OK. My sister went through this years ago.
She’s (Peggy) living a cancer free life now, but still
keeping an eye on it, for she knows how it can find
ways of sneaking back into your life. God is always
in control, whether we can see it or not. There are
a lot of issues that He allows to happen, for He knows
that they will spawn angels and also lessons of which
to learn from. Too many see only the bad things that
happen and not the goodness that has begun. We
cannot see the works of God behind the walls of time.
Sometimes it takes many years for the reasons to be
seen. I never understood why I had to endure all
of the pain and suffering that I went through and
to this day still endure, but each day makes it more
clear to see. My writing stems from all that I have
been through and it enhances my thoughts. You
too may have some of the same insights due to the
life that you journeyed through. Let God help you
find the answers as you continue with life doing
the very best that you can. Now I believe it’s time
for me to cease my rambling hehehe and take my
little venture back through all 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 like to call, RECOLLECT VILLE. Hmm,
it’s looks like I may have stumbled upon a good
title not too far back. So let’s see what if anything
at all I can do with it hehehehe. Here goes!!!!!!

Journeyed Through

Things we’ve done
and things we’ve seen
might discern nows
red and green.
Stages set
from thereunto
might give sight
while journeyed through.
Portions poured
as watered wine
might dilute
a troubled time.
Journeyed through
the things each day
might just be
the better way.
Yes, some heartache
might show true
but we’ll learn from
journeyed through.

Well, my neighbor is mowing AGAIN. He sounds like
he’s right below my window for some reason. Oh well,
I’m almost finished writing LOL. I don’t think Judy can
even hear the lawnmower in her sleep hehehehe. She’s
a sound sleeper. Yep, she’s still asleep. I’ll wake her up
when I finish writing. She told me last night that she wants
cereal for breakfast. So I’ll wake her up with a bowl of
Fruity Pebbles hehehe. Ok, so I guess it’s about 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 two of them being Christmassy/wintry
styles and 22 haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there.
So now I need to be searching for 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 freaking off switch hehehehe.
Found it hiding behind the salt and pepper shakers
that never made it back into the kitchen for some
reason LOL. Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Just Stand Around

The day begins
with mornings sun
bringing in
what soon is done.
Days arrival
there and here
comes with time
of oh sincere.
Bringing chances
in its wake
for so many
to then take.
Yet so often
days begin
without many
sought to win.
Sometimes people
will be seen
as just watching
people lean.
Watching waiting
as days go by,
days begin
while ones deny.
Not with fully
chances found
many will just
stand around.

Blessings Journals

Blessings journals
can be read
through the day
or while in bed.
All our blessings
given true
are with pages
me and you.
Blessings written
throughout time
come from Jesus
so Sublime.
Often blessings
are not seen
until nightmares
find a dream.
Sometimes troubles
here and there
are the blessings
seemed not fair.
Blessings journals
that we see
might be better
history.

Hardworking

Hardworking people
in hardworking times
feel the explosions
of sadness designs.
Things we’ve encountered
in timeless detail
make the hardworking
with dreams to set sail.
Yet often dreamers
will find some nightmares
through all the people
of bitter times scares.
Hardworking people
just need to hold true
and do the best
of which they can do.
Not letting others
to tear up their dreams
with all the pages
of fast moving streams.

Morning Eyes

The day begins
with cloudy skies
found within
my morning eyes.
The sights I see
from thereunto
fill me with
a grateful hue.
Thankful for
the mornings breeze
which that’s blowing
distant trees.
I hear cars
just driving by
as I’m gazing
at the sky.
I hear singing
without words
that is coming
from some birds.
Sounds of morning
comes so sweet
with the flavors
none compete.
Tasty morsels
of the day
come with many
words to say.
Words with beauty
filled with glee
the mornings then
just history.

Leaving Nightlife

Times entangled
leave us scared
looking for
someone that’s cared.
Things we’ve found
as time moves on
leave us tangled
dusk to dawn.
Many nighttime
miseries
come to ones
that fail to see.
Times entangled
then become
as a moments
beating drum.
Beating as
stupidity
through the times
they did not see.
Times entangled
can be changed
by some moments
rearranged.
Leaving nightlife
not so good
and then doing
what we should.

Christmas Hue

Winters stage
will soon be set
with the minutes
not so wet.
Snow will billow
on each hill
with the dreams
of which to fill.
Snowmen standing
here and there
as sweet Christmas
comes so fair.
With its blessings
from God’s Son
Christmas will then
be begun.
Winters stage
will then be found
with God’s blessings
all around.
Seen as magic
winters days
will be found then
to amaze.
Twinkling lights
red, blue and green
will be found
to then be seen.
Found on houses
lit real bright
as they twinkle
every night.
Then inside
the sights will be
lights upon
a Christmas tree.
Making winters
Christmas hue
as a blessing
then come true.

When What How

Ones rekindled
might not see
past the time
of history.
Often water
found in route
under bridges
starts a bout.
So if you’re now
found in place
as rekindled
face to face.
Let the pasts days
be just learned
and then make
a future earned.
Don’t use minutes
that you’ve seen
to make nightmares
from a dream.
Use those lessons
to change now
as it shows you
when, what how.

Don’t Let Urges

Future thinking
might return
to the visions
you discern.
You might mess up
what can be
by not leaving
things to see.
Sometimes journeys
are best laid
as the lessons
past has made.
Don’t let urges
lead astray
all the journeys
day to day.
Let your minutes
be as found
as the time
that’s meant around.
For some moments
cannot be,
because they are not
you or me.

Christmas Kiss

Points of winter
come and go
with some breezes
and some snow.
Often winter
winds of time
blow up pictures
in our mind.
Things we dream
in winters view
come in frame
of thereunto.
Scenes of wonder
Christmas bound
display white snow
on the ground.
Points of winter
seem to share
bits of flavors
filled with care.
Christmas portholes
open wide
and then winter
comes inside.
Playing games
with snowy bliss
with sweet winters
Christmas kiss.
A kiss of wonder
found in frame
as ones shout out
Jesus’s Name.

Take A Little Breath

Many with anger
fail to comply
seeing the moments
with ones eye to eye.
Often ones anger
will sort of mislead
giving the things
they don’t really need.
Sometimes our anger
will simply confuse
as we explode with
a really short fuse.
Many with anger
do not see real clear
how that their journey
is slipping a gear.
Take a little breath now
and find some release
that will be helpful
to bring you some peace.
Don’t let your anger
to tear up your life,
for it will only just
fill you with strife.

Haiku
for Sept 17, 2011

Clouds make a picture
that’s found in the way we view
imagination.

Now’s a beginning
that needs a little movement
to make any good.

Searching for heartbeats
can lead you in a circle
if you search blindly.

Pictures on the wall
can hold many perceptions
and yours might be wrong.

Cantankerous souls
find storms in the calmest seas
and drown in their thoughts.

Our daily efforts
can make or break a moment,
so think it over.

Laughing at people
needs be done for the better
not just for insult.

Tomorrows picture
has yet to of been painted.
Today needs brushstrokes.

Life might seem the same,
but differences are found
in shadows of time.

Morning seen wrongly
could lead you to sad a stage
that needs not be set.

Having and giving
brings together two portions
of delightfulness.

People with sadness
will often seek for others
to merely compare.

Standing in the rain
will either get you real wet
or give you great joy.

A painted moment
that is done by an artist
might seem unfinished.

Places we visit
live on in our memories
as pictures of time.

Wintertime begins
after autumns disclosure
of leaves on the ground.

Many a glancing blow
are the winds of wintertime
breathing their delight.

Clinging to someone
might cause them to run away,
so give them some space.

Answers to questions
can be found in our own minds
needing to be heard.

Seasonal pleasures
come as many emotions
of simple delight.

Counting on someone
could leave you found heart broken.
We are not perfect.

Confused signatures
write yesterdays words of time
that are misconceived.
