ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends
&
HAPPY THANKSGIVING

The winter weather is getting colder with more chances
for snow. Yep, the year is moving right along. Judy and
I are watching the seasons change together as Christmas
gets closer with every day gone by. There hasn’t been a
lot of change in our household hehehe. OK, there hasn’t
been much of any change in our household. We’re still
doing our regular scheduled stuff as usual hehehe. Right
now we’re eating cereal as our late breakfast, being we
were both up all night playing on our farms in FarmTown
and watching TV. We watched Happy Days for an hour
being there was not any other choice we liked hehehehe.
Nope, we lead one none exciting lifestyle which could put
even the worst insomniac asleep LOL. Well it’s on with
the journal to yet another topic. Judy’s sister Barbara
is doing OK, yet still having to take the chemotherapy
and her shots at home of sorts for her cancer. Please
keep her in your prayers. She’s getting real weak from
all the chemo treatments. Hopefully soon this will all be
over and done with and she can move on with her life.
I know, she’ll have to do the same as my sister and
keep tabs on it being cancer can return. My sister
Peggy also had breast cancer many years ago, but is
doing great today. Her and my mom are wanting to
come up sometime maybe next year and see the fall
colors. We shall see if they make it then. I haven’t
seen anyone since they came up the summer of 2008.
Sure wish I could travel, but health does not allow me
that privilege. If Judy was able, we could take turns
driving to Texas, but my eyes and all would not hold
up to a long drive of any sorts. Airplanes are out of
the question with their prices and accomodatons as
well as someone would have to pick me up and drive
me around here and there. Oh well, I’m hoping that
someone comes up to visit some day. Until then, I
guess I will hang loose doing all I can do to entertain
myself hehe. No matter how weird it might be LOL.
My cereal is getting soggy hehehe. I guess I need
to hurry up and eat it huh! Love that Honeycomb 🙂
Yep, it’s our favorite brand of cereal. Now, off of
that topic and onto another hehehehe. I thank God
for all of the scenery He gives me to look at as well
as take pictures of and the ability to write poetry that
reflects all that I can see and reminisce about as days
go by. Life is a journey which we may never truly
know or understand some of the pathways. Many
of our journeys are filled with hidden meanings that
may not come clear until time has run its course.
Oooh, mushy cereal hehehe. I knew I should of
gone ahead and eaten it before starting this hehehe.
Oh well, it still taste of its yummy goodness LOL 🙂
On with my rambling for a bit hehehe. As I look
outside I can see that the scenes are changing with
winters prelude and the soon coming snows. Each
day draws it more closer with every breath of winter.
God gives us these seasons to reflect upon as the
days are all counted. Throughout winter we think
of springtime and with spring we think of summer
and then fall is anticipated as winter comes again.
Be thankful for the seasons and the changing of the
days. God gives us a variety to fill us with thoughts
that conclude as dreams. Be thankful for the many
things that are changing each day. If you do not
see them, it might be because you’re not paying
attention or better yet trying to ignore them, but
changes are in the making. Learn to look for the
goodness in the changes, not just the regret for
all that has passed. This coming Thanksgiving
Day keep your heart open to thankfulness for all
that God has given. Look passed the moments that
you lost someone or something and see what all
you’ve gained. Being up here in Maine I’ve been
given the chance to see scenery that I would not
of seen if I had stayed in Texas. Yes, I miss my
home state, family and friends, but life moves on
as new shadows are made. I’m thankful for a few
new shadows in my life. One great shadow is my
loving wife Judy. We’ve had 10 years together
that I would not trade for anything. Thank You
God for all you have given. Now I reckon it’s time
for me to begin my journey back through all that
I’ve written here through my points of recollection
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 that I like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE. I believe I may have found
a good title just a little ways back, but we shall
see huh hehehe. Here goes…….

Family And Friends

Daily with lifestyles
Lord God always sends
timeless conclusions
of family and friends.
Painted with brushstrokes
lives for a while
may seem to grow to
a memorized smile.
Family and friends
with the counting of days
find ways of making
a much better gaze.
If you are empty
from family and friends
look to Lord Jesus
for His never ends,
For He’s our family
friend through and through
loving us always
no matter what’s true.
So seek now family
and friendships to find
and find the blessings
of wondrous design
found in the making
of a timeless accord
family and friends then
through Jesus our Lord.

Looking back on what I wrote, it makes a lot of sense
to me. I am most times writing to myself and just letting
you see what I wrote to myself hehehe, but often I am
writing to you all or hehehe to my loving wife. Yet the
poems are always meant to give you a smile. I managed
to finish my bowl of Honeycomb cereal before it totally
got all mushy hehe. Now I guess it’s time for me to be
telling you what I tell you every freaking week and that
is, I wrote some more poems. Yeppers 10 more poems
with 3 of them Christmassy styles. Also yes of course
I wrote 22 more haiku for all my haiku lovers out there.
I hope some of the poems and or haiku find a way into
your heart. Now I think it’s about time for me to begin
my search for that dad burned off switch, but not before
I wish you a most wonderful God filled week and also
a Happy Thanksgiving. Remember, Jesus loves you
and we do too. Now to find that freaking off switch
that seems to always try to hide from me hehehehehe.
Found ya hiding in my conglomerate of cereal milk
just wading LOL. Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Shadows Of Then

Time is a moment
many don’t see
as they go walking
through history.
So many people
from day to day
just try to hide
as they walk away.
Time then reminds
as days pass on by
times that were seen
who, what, where and why.
Moments are gathered
as time then records
built by the essence
of nailing of boards.
Often our moments
are seen in frame
as shadows of then
felt as the same.

The Main Point of View

Christmastimes season
is coming soon
with every essence
of Christmastimes tune.
Some of the songs
that Christmas bestows
give us the fragrance
of seasonal snows.
Christmastimes paintings
hung with a smile
bring us the glimmers
of wonderlands while.
All of the stories
told by the fire
of Christmas morning
in all its entire.
They bring us joy
through Christmassy scenes
painted with colors
of reds, blues and greens.
Christmastime thoughts
while sleeping in bed
fill us with dreams
that dance in our head.
Thinking of Santa
and all the joy
that Christmas morning
will then deploy.
Also sweet Jesus
the main point of view
will be the blessings
living in you.
Giving us hopeful
found in His peace
Christmastimes moments
make sadness cease.

Thought

Thought of sections
dreamt of views
bring to sight
of hopeful news.
Yet they’re needing
thoughts to be
sights begun
that we can see.
Dreamt so often
many find
things we wanted
time to time.
Yet those wantings
day to day
might just be
a wrongful way.
So with thinking
thoughts can view
things around
that are not true.
Use good judgment
thoughts you find
and seek for some
peace of mind.

Spread The Joy

The stage is set
for changing scenes
and the colors
reds and greens.
Scenes surround us
daily found
as dear Christmas
comes to town.
The pages turned
as fall is gone
leaving winters
daily dawn.
Christmas minutes
counted true
come on stage
to daily view.
All the pictures
hung so sweet
are the paintings
none compete.
Hung as blessings
sweetly found
as white snow
upon the ground.
Christmas moments
are in place
as the season
makes its face.
People singing
songs so sweet
with their Christmas
meal to eat.
Yet some people
are alone
and those blessings
they’ve not known.
So this season
that you find
spread the joy of
Christmastime.

Plant A Seed

This Thanksgiving
share your heart
with someone
that’s torn apart.
Let them see a
thankful view
through the sight
of what you do.
Let not greed
to find you bare
without love
and without care.
Look for thankful
through your sights
in your days
and in your nights.
This Thanksgiving
plant a seed
that is not just
full of greed.

Let Your Truth Shine

The singing of hope
that others might hear
might be the sound
of not so sincere.
Let your truth shine
as singing is found
with maybe humming
of God’s solid ground.
It takes not words
to speak of His Love
for it’s the actions
that many think of.
So if you’re singing
and not very true
about what’s living
inside of you,
take up your cross
and follow God’s Son
through His forgiveness
for all that you’ve done.

A Christmas Sight

A page of winter
turns with grace
building books
with seasons face.
Written sections
that we find
are the pages
on our mind.
Sometimes winter
will be found
with white snow
upon the ground.
A page of Christmas
then will seem
as a blessing
from a dream.
Turn the pages
with your eyes
and see all that
then complies.
See the pages
black and white
found within
a Christmas sight.

Spread God’s Love Around

Thankful people
often share
all God’s blessings
love and care.
Yet some people
just find true
all just greedy
in their view.
Also some are
found with pain
as their lives
have gone insane.
It’s those people
that need you
so to give them
love so true.
Show them blessings
of God’s grace
and put smiles
upon each face.
Then they might just
share what’s found
when you spread
God’s love around.

A Simple Blessing

A simple story
told of a time
might make the difference
of frame of mind.
A simple sentence
said so sincere
might help someone make it
another year.
A simple heartfelt
caring type word
might help a person
that’s now so absurd.
A simple minute
spent sharing true
might be the thing
that you’re needing do.
A simple break from
all that’s within
might be the thing to
help you begin.
A simple blessing
that you don’t see
might just be found
in someone like me.

Through Each Threshold

Foraging thresholds
could just explode
leaving you problems
on down the road.
Seeking for hurried
thresholds of time
might just expose
a horrible sign.
So if you’re searching
for what to do
through every threshold
found before you,
look for the signs
on doorways detail
for some will show
but only pure Hell.
Also some doorways
will not be found
truly with peace
of God’s Holy Ground.
Let your days judgment
that you unfold
lead you to goodness
through each threshold.

Haiku
for Nov 19, 2011

Sometimes deceptions
are the outer shells we see,
so look much deeper.

Lessons from speed bumps
are sometimes the best teachers
for they’re remembered.

Today gives chances
from early dawn till midnight
so make good with them.

The choices that we make
discern tomorrows pathways,
so choose them all well.

The mornings sunshine
awakens all that see it,
while others seek sleep.

Winter flowers blossom
with their life through the coldness
while others will die.

Pictures of winter
hang in the days scenery
as snowflakes of art.

The grandest of views
is seen by a newborn child
as it awakens.

Points of descriptions
come from different people
and their perceptions.

Wrinkles on a face
describe a persons lifestyle
with their smiles and frowns.

Watching the white clouds
gives a chance for a dreamer
to find many things.

The scenes in winter
are often described as white,
but often it’s not.

Morning brings shadows
that we may not want to see
due to dark of night.

One with another
brings chances for a friendship
or an enemy.

Tomorrows minutes
might just be counted wrongly.
Take care of today.

Almost in horseshoes
describes some situations
that did not matter.

Seven’s the number
describing God’s forgiveness
times seventy times.

Likable people
are often not as they seem.
Look through the exposed.

Places we travel
gather memories within
we can revisit.

Hurrying today
will not make it go faster.
It will wear you out.

Fragments of worry
can cause tomorrow’s ulcers.
Give worries to God.

Answers to questions
often come back as more questions.
Some have no answers.
