ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends
&
MERRY CHRISTMAS

Well once agin I’m late writing hehehe. That’s my life.
A day late and a dollar short hehehe. Actually quite a
few dollars short LOL. My sound driver on my PC
is a bit messed up at the moment, so I can’t hear what
I’m sending via Outlook Express, so I hope it comes
through OK of course only for those of you receiving
this via stationery format. How have you been? It’s
been cold the last few days and supposed to get much
colder. I guess that’s to be expected huh! Well, not
much has changed on the pages of Pearce’s household.
The ice cracking ever so often tends to startle me from
time to time LOL. It sounds like somebody beating
on the house hehehe. The weather up here has been
on the rainy side the last few days which isn’t good
being it’s been freezing rain most of the time hehehe.
In other words it’s been a slip sliding adventure to
and from the mailbox lately LOL. I know I should
put the cleats on my shoes, but I just haven’t gotten
around to it yet hehehe. It’s supposed to snow some
more this week. At the moment most of the snow
has been washed away by the rains, but there are
still a few patches of snow here and there that have
managed to hang tight. I’m sure they won’t get
lonesome hehehe. They’ll soon be joined by much
more snow. It’s that time of year that the snows
start to be a little more often. Well, back to my
sound driver hehehe. I fixed it a minute ago and it
works now. That was bugging me and I couldn’t
quit thinking about it LOL. Anyways, it’s working
now and I can hear the music in my stationery 🙂
Now I can move along with my rambling without
wondering how to fix it hehehe. Judy is behind
me at her PC playing a match three game called
Fishdom – Frosty Splash. I bought it the other
day for $2.95 and installed it on both of our PC’s.
I’ve been playing it off and on as well, but she is
way ahead of me now even though I started a few
days before her LOL. That’s being that the blue
that is in the game tends to mess with my eyes
after a little bit. I’m sort of color blind and the
color blue goes spastic after a while leaving me
with a head ache. Oh well, I like the game,
but prefer the hidden object games that her and
I can play together on my PC. We’re playing one
that is called Christmas Wonderland 2. We just
finished Christmas Wonderland 1 the other day.
Life here in the cold of Maine has not been all
that bad. God has made sure we have all that
we need in life and even provided some of our
wants to fill us with joy. Judy’s unemployment
is just about to run out and if they don’t give
her extension, we might be pinching penny’s
literally. Oh well, life goes on. I’ve had to live
on much less in the past, but I was all alone
at the time. Judy and I are not buying much
for Christmas. Hehehe I bought her and I
a Chinese Checker set the other day for our
Christmas present. It only costed $11.95 LOL.
Remember, Christmas isn’t about gifts that
we buy and share with one another all though
it is a great thing to do. Christmas is all about
our Savior Jesus Christ who was born to show
us His understanding. Being that He was
born as a man He also through time endured
all that we could possibly incur. Maybe not
the same situations, but none the less the
same pain. So, this Christmas take a step
out of yourself and see what He has done
for you. You will then see the gifts of which
Christmas provides. Now I think it’s about
time for me to be venturing back through all
that I’ve written here to see if I can find me a
good word or phrase that might work for the
title for today’s brand new poem. And so, it’s
away I go to that place of my recollection that
I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think
I may have stumbled upon a good title. Now,
let’s see what I can do with it hehehehehe.
Here goes…… 🙂

God Has Made

A life of stages
said and done
were implanted
by God’s Son.
God has made
so many things
even how a
small bird sings.
It’s the blessings
of the days
that we often
miss the phase.
God has made
a sight to see
such as snowflakes
falling free.
So many things
God has laid true
such as love
for me and you.
God has made
this very place
and He filled it
with His Grace.

I hope that made at least a little sense to you hehe.
My tummy is growling. Me thinks I might need to
eat or something LOL. I haven’t had anything to
eat today. I’ve been too caught up trying to fix my
sound card. It just needed tweaking hehehehehe.
Before I tell you anything else, I need to ask for
some prayer for my good friend Donald aka Tiny.
He’s in ICU right now in Greenville TX and not
doing too well. Him and me go way back. He’s
a big man or should I say was, being now he’s in
his 80’s. I think he was 6’11” back in the old days.
I’m afraid he’s not going to make it this time. He
requested me to call him yesterday and I got him
before they carried him to ICU. I reminded him
that God is in control and all will be well. I also
promised him that I would see him again one day.
Our friendship is a good one. Also I want you
to keep praying for my sister in law Barbara.
She’s doing well, but the chemo and radiation
treatments are wearing on her. I love ya Barb.
Hang in there. Now it’s time for me to tell you
what I tell you ever week and that is, I wrote
some more poems and haiku. Yeppers 10 more
poems with 4 of them being Christmassy. Also
I wrote once again 22 haiku for all of my haiku
lovers out there. Now before I begin my little
search for that confounded off switch, I need
to wish you a most wonderful God filled week
and a Merry Christmas. Remember, Jesus
loves you and we do too. Now it’s time for me
to begin my search for that off switch. Found
it hiding in my package of Reese’s Peanut
Butter cups hehehe. Get out of there, they’re
mine 🙂 Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Scenes So Joyful

Hours counted
bring a sight
that of Christmas
I delight.
Soon dear Christmas
will be seen
here and now
and in between.
Moments joyful
painted true
with that wondrous
Christmas hue.
Hours ticking
bring the sound
that of music
all around.
Heard as echoes
here and there
hours counted
with a prayer.
That from Jesus
born that day
in a manger
filled with hay.
Scenes so joyful
come in phase
with the sight of
Christmas days.

He Gave His Son

On that day
so long ago
there was One
we’ve come to know.
Now He’s part
of history
and the lives
of you and me.
This dear Baby
I speak of
gave to us
His Fathers Love.
He is now
forever true
living breathing
days anew.
So this Christmas
why not try
to seek peace
with Adonai.
Through His Love
He gave His Son
to make Heavens
battle won.
Through forgiveness
we can find
true and joyful
peace of mind.

Morning’s Displayed

Morning comes
with blessings found
as a fragrance
all around.
Scenes are displayed
here and there
as the sunlight’s
moments prayer.
Painted murals
up above
are the mornings
way of love.
Giving freely
by God’s Hand
morning shows
the sights so grand.
Scenes as presents
wrapped so sweet
as some candy
we can eat.
Tasted with our
taste and smell
and our sight
from God’s inkwell.
Morning’s displayed
fancy free
as a gift
to you and me.

Let Loose Of Anger

With just a minute
an hour can thrive
leaving and echo
with each day alive.
So many minutes
in days that we see
are left as pages
of bad history.
When looking backwards
make sure that the view
isn’t just anger
that needs not be true.
Sometimes tomorrow
needs us to say
I’m letting go
as I enter today.
Let loose of anger
of then, when and there
and find some peace
in the days breath of air.

Those Shadows

A little shadow
found displayed
might be one that
echoes made.
Sometimes shadows
that we see
are just signs of
history.
Let those shadows
that you viewed
find the truth
that’s misconstrued.
Often shadows
time to time
are just moments
bad design.
Let your shadows
find some joy
through the actions
you deploy.
Don’t let action
you display
come and haunt
another day.
Use good judgment
what you do
and those shadows
won’t haunt you.

Pick And Choose

Now as I sit here
awaiting tomorrow
I find I’m filled with
a moment of sorrow.
Times that eluded me
leaving me waiting
for what my heart finds
I’m always debating.
Wishing for hours
and minutes of time
to come and give me
a better design.
Often the pages
of days that I see
leave me just wanting
a healthier me.
Times that I wasted
just out of control
I find I’m wishing
a much different goal.
Now I’m much older
and wiser the same
knowing that living
is not just a game.
Life has its stages
with pages we set
and some are journeys
we’ll never forget.
Lessons are gathered
yet needed to use
through now today
as we pick and choose.

Sound of His Name

So many seasons
come into play
as they are leading
to Christmas day.
Easter brings joy
of the third day to see
Jesus came back
for both you and me.
Thanksgiving also
shows us so true
how being thankful
is how we’re to do.
So many moments
elude us each day
as all the seasons
that just fade away.
Fall displays colors
of blessings of time
that can enlighten
our daily design.
Christmas is fathomed
in many details.
Some seen as candles
and some seen as bells.
Yet Christmas surely
is much more to see,
for it’s about
what God gave for free.
He gave His Son
to help us to know
that He is there
where ever we go.
Jesus is living
as an on burning flame
saving us daily
with sound of His Name.

Antsy Minutes

Bringing sections
fast alive
might be burdens
to survive.
Hurried wanna
with a gain
might just be
a time insane.
Don’t bring sections
oh so fast
into hurried
shadows cast.
Let some peaceful
sections true
live and breath
in things you do.
Antsy minutes
said and done
might be what
that’s not so fun.

December Mornings

December mornings
come at a glance
sometimes as glimmers
of time in a trance.
December pathways
donning the sight
come from the minutes
of hours of night.
December mornings
found in the frame
are with the shimmers
in my windowpane.
Decembers moments
that seem to shine
are of so many
of great Christmastime.
Christmas with loved ones
from so long ago
are now remembered
as stages of snow.
Yet often Christmas
was snow never seen
only with childhood
found in a dream.
December mornings
bring me much love
that comes from Christmas
and all I think of.

What’s Not Today

A simple grasp
or touch in time
can be what
that many find.
Many seeking
for their place
in a simple
time and space.
Trivial minutes
seem to pass
leaving many
troubled mass.
Many others
look and see
what that may not
truly be.
A simple hold
on want and way
might just be
what’s not today.

Haiku
for Dec 18, 2011

Looking for beauty
might cause you to miss the sight.
Beauty is skin deep.

The truth in people
could be in many shadows
and how they’re displayed.

Many of our flaws
are really perfections
and how we’re unique.

Tomorrows porthole
needs help from today’s actions,
so don’t just waste it.

Scenes all around us
are capable of beauty.
They just need some help.

When reading people
don’t forget to read the heart,
for the outside lies.

No journey in time
is left without perception.
Look for the right sight.

A simpletons mind
does things without first thinking
and leaves destruction.

Paving tomorrow
begins with one by one steps
throughout now and then.

Successful thinking
comes when all is thought out clear,
before stepping out.

Judging someone else
might find you in the lamplight
as others judge you.

A path in the snow
is covered soon as snowflakes
fall down from the sky.

Many directions
end up in much the same place,
but some much better.

Mornings arrival
brings many questions to ask
and many answers.

When you’re with closed eyes
you miss what is before you,
so don’t walk blindly.

The oceans sweet sound
is as serenading surf
pounding on the shore.

Nighttime brings starlight
that glimmers as some angels
twinkling in the night.

The depth of the sea
makes ones wonder about life
and all that exist.

Fluorescent fixtures
illuminate what we perceive
which darkness will hide.

Anger needs to cease
when the point and time is gone.
Today’s a new day.

Leftover heartaches
will bring some access baggage
into tomorrow.

Start the day with smiles
and they might blossom truly
into the real thing.
