ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

So, how was your week last week and your weekend? It’s been
a very screwy one for us to say the least! The week started off
with Sunday nights fire. Yes, fire! Judy’s place of business burned
last Sunday night. Now Judy is out of work and on Unemployment
or better yet hehe, waiting for it. To top that off, our anniversary
was Oct 2 (Friday) and we were both sick and unable to celebrate.
We were going to try to celebrate Saturday, but she was still sick.
Oh well, it was just an anniversary :(! The weather up this ways
has and is still on the rainy side as also the cold side. We’re hoping
that Gary the owner of the Elm Tree is able to rebuild so Judy can
go back to work. Time will tell. With the rain and all, I’m sure it
will make it hard to build. Life up here in Northeastern Maine is
showing signs of winter more every day. Fall is coming in quickly
and Judy and I are hoping that the weather conditions will slack
down a bit as well as the being sick and all so we can go out and
take some more pictures. Until then, we will just have to wait.
We did get to spend all day together on our anniversary, yet we
both were weary and weak and spent most of the day recouping.
Life in the Pearce’s household has been a rather boring one for
the last few days. Judy has been down in the dumps (depressed
if you will) about the diner and all, but if all goes well, the diner
should be up and running again soon. That might of been what
added to her being sick Friday, Saturday and today. Depression
can effect people in weird ways. Today it looks as though it will
rain all day, so we will be just spending time together and maybe
watch a movie or two. We watched some episodes of ALF last
night on DVD hehehe. That seemed to cheer us both up :). We
might watch some more ALF today along with a movie or two :).
We are both hoping that things get better before the Christmas
holidays come around. Can’t be sad for Christmas Ho Ho Ho ;).
Yeppers, Christmas is our favorite time of year. Surely things
will have gotten cleared up by then. We are both doing a lot of
praying for God’s will to be done. We both know that God is
always there and never wishes harm to anyone. Yet we do know
that sometimes bad has to happen so to make us to see the good!
Many things happen only due to our humanity. Life has its many
roller coaster rides and some are deadly, yet all will be well in
The Hands of God. We don’t see the end results. We only see
what is before our eyes. God sees much beyond that. We both
know that it will all work out for us, yet our humanity makes us
to worry. I pray quite often to God, yet I’m sure He has a great
memory and does not need to be reminded of my needs, hehehe
but I do anyway. We all do, from time to time. Lessons come
from our folly. Keep Judy and I in your prayers as we struggle
with the days ahead. I’m sure God will make things OK. In the
mean time hehehehe, I will continue with my onslaught of writing.
I hope it doesn’t bore ya to tears LOL! Well, I guess it’s time
for me to begin my venture back through all I have written to
that place of recollection in search of a 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 found a good title for today’s poem. Now let’s see
what I can do with it……..Here goes!

To Be Reminded

The seconds that pour
as grains of white sand
are moments we’ve prayed
for times to withstand.
Handfuls of minutes
counted just right
are all the seconds
that we wish delight.
God has no need
to be reminded each day
what that we’re needing
to come in our way.
The seconds that pour
as grains of white sand
are held real tightly
in the palm of God’s Hand.
We though will stumble
while wanting so true
what we thinks better
for me and for you.

I hope that made sense to ya :). I never know if what I’m writing
is coming across clear. Ok, so I do once in a while hehehehehe
when someone will write me to tell me! But most times I’m just
trusting that God will help you to understand. Back on the wheels
of life here at the Pearce’s. Yeppers, we will be OK. I know that
God is watching over us as He always has. Nobody said life was
supposed to be thornless hehehe. It is a bed of roses ya know LOL.
I have spent a little extra time this week writing a bit more haiku
for my YoVille messages hehehe. I hope they don’t get to always
expecting that much haiku LOL, cause it ain’t gonna happen!!!!!
Well, I took a few pictures outside a little bit ago to make as the
stationary for this and I had a thought, why not add one or two
of the pictures that we took while in Houlton the other day. I got
some good pictures of the moose statue at the little park in town.
The statue is supposed to be life size. If so, I don’t wanna come
up against that moose!!!!! That things ENORMOUS. Yet I do
want to one day see a bull moose, but if it’s that big, then I hope
and pray that it’s seen from a distance LOL. I good distance :).
I guess it’s about time for me to begin searching for the bloody
off switch again, but before I do, I guess I need to tell you about
the poems and haiku I’ve written this week hehehehehe actually
yesterday (Saturday). I wrote yet another 10 poems and 22 haiku
to go along with the, get this, 17 YoVille haiku messages hehe.
So all in all I’ve written 39 haiku :)…. Also amongst the poems
are 2 Christmas poems. Enjoy!!! Now I must wish you a most
wonderful week. Remember Jesus loves you and we do too.
Now where’s that off switch hiding this time hehehehehehehe.
It don’t actually hide. I just keep forgetting where I left it LOL.
I found it, I found it!! Right there in front of my eyes or should
I say my eye hehehe,,,,,,,,? None the less, have a great week.
See ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems
10 and 22 + 17 ­čÖé

A Better View

When a storm
has came to you,
you might learn then
something new.
When a problem
seems too large
then let Jesus
to take charge.
When your blessings
seem too small
take some time
to view them all.
When a minute
seems too long
take a breath
and sing along.
When your passion
falls from you
seek to find
a better view.

Link By Link

In through doorways
time will come
bringing minutes
then and done.
Time will enter
with its phase
coming from
the future days.
Lines of fractions
lay in wait
in through doorways
time and date.
Minutes counted
might be found
as the timeframes
coming round.
Link by link
connects each view
that is making
me and you.

Struggle Encountered

Behind a problem
might be some good
that for the moment’s
misunderstood.
Within our torment
might be a flower
waiting to shine
in its finest hour.
Forest of troubles
might seem to hide
all of the goodness
that’s hidden inside.
Winds might be blowing
times really hard,
but they might blow
some good in your yard.
Struggles encountered
might seem insane,
but some are needed
to give you a gain.

Reflecting On Cue

Scented reflections
of time so sweet
seem to encompass
a times tasty treat.
Billows of flavors
inside of my mind
make the reflections
real easy to find.
Memories scented
with thens other day
finds ways of painting
a wonderful way.
Christmastimes joyful
found in some scenes
is what that’s scented
with tall evergreens.
All the reflections
found within me
await every moment
to be what I see.
I find the timeframes
reflecting on cue
are what will soon be
surely so true.

On Some Paper

Lists on some paper
ones may put in line
things they remember
of time after time.
Some may be printed
with word after word
things ones remember
that’s seen, done and heard.
Yet it’s those moments
of day after day
that might need faded
from paper today.
Some we remember,
might need be forgotten
for it paints pictures
of always so rotten.
List on some paper
the good days apart,
then you might find some
good in your heart.

Morning Dawns

Mornings are dawning
with sunshiny skies
and maybe essence
of clouds to surmise.
The new days arrival
is pictured detail
of maybe mornings
of leaves all set sail.
Dawns early lighting
is found in a way
as the beginnings
of another fine day.
Mornings are blooming
as flowers in spring
while it displays each
wonderful thing.
Each moments journey
begins its design
as morning dawns each
wonderful time.

Falses and Trues

Jumbled up blessings
in mesmerized views
make our opinions
for yesterdays news.
Many times blessings
are unsorted scenes
leaving us wondering
what many things mean.
Jumbled up moments
that come down our way
may be the blessings
that each day we’d pray.
Jumbled emotions
might fall into place
if we’d allow them
to be saved by Grace.
Letting Lord Jesus
to make better views
by us each changing
our falses and trues.

Many Have Knowledge

Knowledge is power
yet many will lie
and tell you daily
what they just deny.
Many have knowledge
that ones disapprove
due to them being
in a much different groove.
Knowledge that’s stumbling
not wanting to know
leaves many standing
with no way to grow,
being that many will
act so to say
that they have knowledge
much better each day.
Knowledge is power,
yet many will die
as they go onwards
while living a lie.

Christmas So Fine

Soon there is coming
the sight of a sleigh
bringing those presents
for sweet Christmas Day.
Santa will shout out
soon you will find
toys in your stockings
with many designs.
Santa will also
shout in the night
Ho Ho Ho Ho
it’s yours to delight.
Soon Santa’s coming
to deliver some toys
to good little girls
and good little boys.
Christmas will jingle
its wonderful tune
that Santa’s coming
and he’ll be here soon.
Songs will be playing
as many will sing
while we are waiting
for what he will bring.
Santa will come down
the chimney at night
to give the twinkle
of his Ho Ho sight.
Then around the tree
he’ll lay and he’ll stack
toys that he got
right out of his sack.
Maybe a soldier
tiny and green
or maybe just maybe
a little submarine.
Maybe for the girl
a sweet little dolly
that when it’s squeezed
will say hello mommy.
Soon there is coming
that wonderful time
that I remember
of Christmas so fine.

Times Daily Quest

The path of a striver
is real clear to see
such as the footprints
through their history.
One that’s a striver
will sometimes befall
troubles that happen
to us one and all.
The paths many see
might sort of display
ways of surrounding
with troubles each day.
Yet if the striver
keeps a clear mind
one day the blessings
their pathways will find.
Make all your striving
from here unto there
guided by Jesus
an answered by prayer.
The path of a striver
should seek for the best
found in the pathways
times daily quest.

Haiku
for Oct 3, 2009

Found on a foothill
are thoughts that many perceive.
They are weeds and grass.

Long awaited time
paints the impatience of here
while there is to come.

Power is tainted
when ones use it unwisely.
It becomes useless.

Heaven holds many
awaiting for their brothers,
yet many won’t come.

Tomorrows paintings
may be what now are hanging,
yet we just don’t see.

Wisdom of ages
is gathered through emotion
and perplexity.

Search through the flowers
for the beauty that’s within.
The sight is not all.

Don’t let opinions
to destroy a good friendship.
Look past opinions.

Hands are for holding,
so hold tight to the blessings
that God has given.

Deep in a river
swims the thoughts just like pebbles
rolling with the flow.

Many will forsaken,
leaving ones in bitter pain,
but Jesus will not.

Answers to questions
come by asking some questions.
So fear not to ask.

Humility thrives
in ones that do not show it.
Sometimes it’s within.

Doors to tomorrow
are not always clearly seen.
Sometimes they’re hidden.

An echo from past
might in some way be today
living within you.

Trouble might be found
through your times of sincerity.
Some will view it wrong.

A living jungle
marches timidly today
deep within ones minds.

Some see the future
as a place to be afraid
and so they hold back.

The reins of a horse
can be described as lifestyles.
Some will not ride well.

If you seek a time,
then time will surely find you,
yet maybe not well.

Some thrive for fire
and they do not play it safe.
You might just get burned.

Looking through windows,
you can see what that’s outside,
but not how it feels.

YoVille Haiku

Ones seeking echoes
might be seen standing silent
awaiting a sound.

In midst of trouble
ones will surely look outwards
in search of some peace.

In midst of trouble
ones need to search deep inside
to find peace that’s good.

Lasting impressions
can be either good or bad,
so be real careful.

Burning a threshold
might be what that is needed
to move you ahead.

┬ęBy Bill Pearce

Left to our own will
we might only find torment
in the end results.

Running too quickly
can lead you into trouble
that you did not see.

┬ęBy Bill Pearce

When under fire
we will act on our instincts,
yet not always well.

Knowledge is power
that many daily abuse
due to their ego.

Mornings encompass
all that the night has released,
yet time moves along.

When sat in fearful
the only things you can see
are what that you fear.

Windows we see through
are the same as some choices.
It might look real good.

Some might see problems
and some might see the answers,
yet we all see time.

Gradient moments
will evolve through each turnstile
as pages are turned.

Today is a blessing
which so many will overlook
while looking ahead.

A canyon’s venture
is but one step at a time
with eyesight and feet.

Life can be stressful
with all the worry from time.
Leave worries with God.
