ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

So how’s life treating ya? It’s doing pretty nice up here.
Most of the snow has melted away, but guess what LOL?
It’s snowing again right now. I put Benny out to go potty
and he was catching the snowflakes when I looked out a
little later hehehe. He though a little later wanted to come
inside, because he was wet and cold LOL. Benny was on
the top of the steps. I unhooked his leash and he ran right
in the house and was ready to play with me hehehe. I said
OK Benny go in the PC room and he made a mad dash to
say hello to Judy. He’s now in our bedroom chewing on
his favorite rawhide chew bone 🙂 Well, it seems that the
ground is turning white once again, but I don’t think it
will stay that way for long if the temperatures hold out.
Judy and I had a great visit from her daughter Mandy
and the grandkids Chance and Rylee. Little Benny had
a great time playing with them. They loved him and he
loved them. Rylee tried to carry Benny and was doing
a fairly decent job of doing it for a 4 year old hehehe.
Rylee’s and Benny’s birthdays are just 3 days apart, but
of course Benny is just 8 months old right now and will
be 1 year old in July hehehe. Yeppers, he’s our little boy.
He lets us know if he’s gotta go out by heading for the
door. He don’t bark. He barked once the day we got
him when I went to the bathroom, but that was the end
of it. I guess he figures he ain’t gotta bark to get our
attention LOL. It’s still snowing. It’s supposed to snow
tonight as well. Oh well, this is Northeastern Maine.
Judy’s over there playing on her Farmtown hehehehe.
We live such an exciting life hehehe! It’s 32F degrees
outside right now. For some reason it don’t feel like
spring. I wonder freaking why LOL? Hehehe I was
reaching for a Reeses peanut butter cup and Benny
heard the rattling of the bag and came running fast
thinking I was gonna give him a doggy treat hehehe.
Judy reached and gave him one of his Tiny Bones
and he snatched it and ran in the other room with it.
He’s so silly LOL. Judy and I thank God every day
for giving Benny to us. We sure needed him and it
seems that he also needed us as well. God works
His miracles every day, but we may not be aware
of them, because we cannot see them. A lot of His
miracles are hidden inside blessings that we often
overlook. Benny is back in here with us trying to
fix his bed to his liking LOL. Yep, I’m glad we
found Benny. He’s made a big difference in our
lives. Gives us a reason to get up and go outside.
Whoever said being retired on disability was the
greatest needs to get their head examined. I’m not
a homebody. I hate being stranded at home due
to my illnesses, but now that we have Benny, it’s
not as bad as it was getting for me. I still would love
to be able to take off driving and visit my friends
and family or even be able to fly, but I cannot,
so I thank God for Benny. I know that there are
many out there that have it a lot worse than I do
and I pray for them every day. If you think you’ve
got it bad, then take a good look around. You
might just see a person that makes your ailments
seem like the common cold. Thank God for the
good things that you find in your life. If you don’t
see them, it’s only because you are not looking.
We each have blessings every day, but we might
be letting our focus be but only on the bad stuff.
Now I believe it’s time for me to be taking my lil
trip back through all that 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. I believe I may
have stumbled upon a good title. Now let’s see if
I can write a poem worth reading using it hehehe.
Here’s goes….

Now I Believe

Found in my purposes
I’ve found some places
that I believe that
hold smiling faces.
Now I believe that
timeframes I see
are but an echo
of my history.
Many circumstances
fall into view
changing the pages
of both me and you.
Turning each corner
now I believe
I have found blessings
that God did conceive.
Giving me reasons
for everyday
by giving choices
within His Way.
Now I believe that
God gave to me
blessings on stages
of ages for free.

So, there ya go. Oh yea, it’s still snowing, but not
as heavy as it was earlier. Yet, it is supposed to snow
again tonight LOL. Life goes on. It seems as normal
up here hehehe. Judy had to go to the other room and
Benny was right behind her like a shadow hehehehehe.
We had some nice weather last week. A few days that
got up to the mid 70’s, but that’s gone hehehe. Now
it’s back to the regular schedule for us up here LOL……
There’s not much else to report from us at the Pearce’s
Place hehehe. Just hanging waiting to see if and when
springtime will arrive. I thought it was here last week,
but it was just an illusion 🙂 as winter teased us hehe.
I guess 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 yet another one
being a Christmas poem. Also I wrote 22 more haiku
for all of my haiku lovers out there. I hope you enjoy
them. Oh yea, one of my poems is about Benny hehe.
Ok so now I need to be searching for that old off switch
that loves to try and elude me, but not before I wish
you a most wonderful God filled week. Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too. Now to find that silly
off switch. Hehehe found it hidden among some of
the burdocks that managed to get on Benny when he
went outside. We’ve decided to started calling him
Benny Burdock LOL. Anyways, I see ya hiding there.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S. I once again wrote some more
Thoughts To Use. They’ll be at the end
as usual hehehe

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

Tomorrows Journey

Tomorrows troubles
begin with our worries
often in place of
unneeded hurries.
Patience is gathered
when we’re in places
found as remembered
in yesterdays traces.
Tomorrows journey
begins when we move
leaving our footsteps
in today’s groove.
Often some troubles
will follow through
into tomorrows
things that we do.
Don’t let those troubles
to be all you see.
Find all the lessons
from your history.

Wintertime’s Methods

Wintertime’s methods
come with a breeze
blowing transitions
of leaves on the trees.
In the scenario
of wintertime’s days
I’ve seen white snowflakes
in so many ways.
Coming down softly
and then with a gust
also some patterns
that it does adjust.
Maybe just snowflakes
lightly to see,
and then some blizzards
seen so wintery.
Wintertime’s methods
soon fade into spring
leaving remembered
its own everything.

Wonderful Times

Right now my heartbeat
beats memories
things from the fragments
of deepest of seas.
Swells of the ocean
coming ashore
right now my heartbeat
seems to just soar.
Watching the seagulls
flying away
within my memories
of day after day.
Right now my heartbeat
is but a dream
beating of blessings
found in a stream.
Sweet rushing waters
found long ago
after the raindrops
made them to flow.
Right now this instant
I can remember
timeframes from childhoods
found in December.
I can remember now
those very days
as I just dream on
now in a gaze.
All of those memories
distant designs
are now remembered
as wonderful times.

The Middle of March

The March winds blow
as scenes surmise
while the clouds
just paint the skies.
The middle of March
is found and seen
sometimes as
the wondrous dream.
Spring awaits us
as March thrives
with its daily
scenes surprise.
Sometimes raindrops,
sometimes wind.
Sometimes snowflakes
will not end.
March in Maine
is sometimes found
still with bits of
snow around.
Springtime’s doorway
might come through
when it sees it’s
time to do.
In New England
March might be
just a little
wintery.
Yet then springtime
might be found
with its raindrops
on the ground.
Pitter patters
of the rain
will make flowers
soon in frame.
Maybe soon the
winters cold
will be just a
day of old.

Show The Blessings

Show me blessings
found from God
seen as not just
our applaud.
Show me glimmers
of His name
found within
what you attain.
Show me not just
your desires,
but what all that
God acquires.
Let your blessings
be not found
standing in just
sight and sound.
Show the blessings
within you
in the things
you daily do.

My Sweet Puppy

Footsteps frolic
on the floor
with the sounds
that I adore.
Tiny footsteps
tiny feet
stepping lightly
oh so sweet.
It’s my puppy
walking true
here and now
within my view.
While sometimes
I might not see
him just walking
silently.
Little footsteps
he will make
when I sleep
or sit awake.
My sweet puppy
is my friend
which is surely
a Godsend.

Dusty Trails

Because a journey
falls apart
does not mean
it’s not God’s art.
Sometimes lessons
dusty trails
are what’s found
with winds of fails.
Dusty minutes
trails of time
sometimes might
seems full of grime.
Yet some dusty
trails we find
might be there
to change our mind.
Dusty trails
of thereunto
could just be
a time to view.

Mornings Days

The day awakens
with the sun
and what all
that God has done.
Time is minutes
counted true
in the things then
so anew.
God’s Own artwork
starts each day
without ending
in His Way.
There are blessings
in the skies
sometimes as a
bird that flies.
The days ending
then starts night
with God’s blessings
to delight.
All the stars
that twinkle true
God has placed
for me and you.
Scenes to see
as moments gaze
until time for
mornings days.

Ocean Sky

Waves of days
come clouds of white
with some more
to then unite.
The ocean sky
is seen above
with God’s Hands
and filled with love.
Waves come crashing
to and fro
with the scenes of
rain and snow.
The ocean sky
is found complete
with the paintings
none compete.
God’s Own paintings
waves of days
depict journeys
He displays.
As a portal
to a stage
with the turning
of a page.
Ocean sky
of Timeless glance
is God’s blessings
song and dance.

Yesterdays Christmas

While holding memoirs
of yesterdays past
you might just miss
the shadows that cast.
Yesterdays Christmas
might live inside
as a great river
that’s so deep and wide.
Yet for a moment
yesterdays view
might need to be
just living in you.
Let the new Christmases
coming to town
be seen with joy
of all there around.
Let all the yesterdays
Christmases be
joyful thanksgivings
in your history.
Don’t let your Christmas
to just fall apart.
Share it with Jesus
deep in your heart.
Each day you breathe
no matter the day
keep Christmas living
to not go away.
Yesterdays Christmas
needs not your sorrow.
Live as it’s Christmas
today and tomorrow.

Haiku
for Mar 24, 2012

Sometimes a moment
just needs a little breather,
so have some patience.

March winds may blow strong,
but they give way to some peace
ever so often.

A letter from spring
says flowers are soon to come.
Get your camera.

Today has begun
with breezes blowing briskly
which soon will subside.

Springs budding flowers
are seen as shadows of time
just awaiting to bloom.

Today’s a blessing,
Tomorrow’s a mystery,
Yesterday is gone.

Venturing footsteps
can go in the wrong places.
Take Jesus with you.

Lessons from others
are sometimes real hard to grasp
due to our egos.

A sweet child of God
brings forth the blessing of love
that is often missed.

Changes in people
often misinterpreted
lead many astray.

While counting ones flaws,
search to find your own failures
and then find the good.

A forest of thoughts
are found with many tree limbs
sometimes misleading.

Many views in life
are gathered by bumpy roads
that led to heartaches.

A glimmer of hope
lives in everyone of us.
Jesus put it there.

Mind blowing moments
will sometimes bring fear alive
found as excitement.

The sound of breathing
is the wind as it pulsates
as the day goes by.

Hearing a heartbeat
means not only life is there,
but hope is alive.

Being a good friend
won’t get you into Heaven,
but it’s a good start.

Looking in mirrors
you might see your reflection
as just a facade.

While bringing flowers
let yourself also be found
as a true blessing.

Today has begun
with chances for tomorrow
if we do our best.

Many write letters
leaving true feelings aside.
Don’t write empty words.

Thoughts To use
©by Bill Pearce

The painting of a heart
is the beating found inside.
The artwork is one brushstroke
after another as time moves along.
Find the many paintings inside
one another and try to make
them not just a drawing,
but a masterpiece.
Let God help.

God bless from Bill

Memories are a blessing
so don’t let them be soured.
Keep the good memories
as smiles for another day.

God shows us miracles
that occur often through
the unexpected which
turn into our memories.

God bless from Bill
