We’ve Survived

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Well it’s yet another day in paradise hehehe and the
weather has been in rain mode all night and morning.
It has though ceased. It’s 57F degrees right now at
1PM. Here lately there have been a few surprises,
such as today we got a second dog. His name is Milo
and he’s a Lhasa Apso. He and Benny are slowly
making friends. Benny is all excited and can’t calm
down, but Milo is resting in one of the doggie beds
in here. Benny still wants to play and all that stuff,
but Milo is still getting used to being here. He seems
to have gotten used to our home. We took Benny
and Milo outside to play and possibly potty hehehe
and we were going to let Milo stay outside for a bit,
but when we started coming in the house, he beat
us up the steps LOL. He’s made himself right at
home. It seems he’s not as picky as Benny is about
food and all and he went like a little vacuum eating
the treats that Benny just left on the floor hehehehe.
I hope they make good friends. Benny likes him alot,
but Milo is 8 years old and a little slow in making
friends. Time will tell. I might put a few pictures
of them in my stationery. Hehehe we got pictures
of them laying the same bed together. So sweet!
Milo is up now and under my feet as the same as
Benny. Why do dogs like to hunker down under
me or on me LOL? Ok so my nick name is Animal.
I’ve always gotten along well with animals. Judy’s
got Milo in her lap now trying to get Benny to calm
down and let him relax. I was holding Benny, but
he got too hard to hold, plus it’s literally impossible
to type while holding him LOL. It’s almost too hard
with Benny and his whining to play with Milo, but
I’ll manage somehow. Judy and the boys are now
all in the bedroom lying on the bed together. Judy
knew I was having trouble focusing on my writing
so she took them in there. OK, so Benny and Milo
followed me in there when I had to go to the john
and Judy kept them in there LOL, but it seems that
Milo and Benny have made it back in here and Milo
is wanting to lay down in the doggy bed and rest,
but Benny still wants to get to know him if ya know
what I mean hehehe. In time maybe Benny will
calm down. I think he just doesn’t know what to
think of Milo. They shouldn’t have trouble with
beds, being we have 4 doggie beds to choose from.
We also bought another dog carrier to keep Milo
in when we have to go somewhere without them
We already have one for Benny that he came in
when he flew here from Missouri that we use for
Benny. Yet, they will often go with us if able.
The Pearce’s Place is getting quite lively hehehe
if ya know what I mean. Benny and Milo are
almost the very same size. Neither one will get
any bigger. They both weigh about 20 pounds.
Not too much else has gone on around this neck
of the woods. Wintertime has been knocking on
our door often, but so far the only snow we’ve
seen was last Sunday morning. God has blessed
us with some beautiful days and some wonderful
moments. Yes, we’ve had more than our share
of problems, but we’ve survived. If you’re having
troubles that are wearing on your nerves, then
give them to Jesus in a prayer. You don’t have
to be kneeling. I pray often when I’m cooking,
watching TV or lying down in bed. God is there
always to hear your prayers, but make sure that
they are sincere. Let God have control of the
outcomes. Not my will, but His will be done!
Now I think it’s time for me to begin my quest
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 place of my recollection
that I always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE
I believe I may have found a good title, but the
proof is in the pudding hehehe. Here goes!

We’ve Survived

Many struggles
thereunto
we’ve survived
to start anew.
Times we’ve stumbled
and fell down
we’ve survived
to better ground.
It’s our lessons
that we’ve gained
that which give
sometimes explained.
God is there with
love and care
when you take time
for a prayer.
Let Him guide you
where you go
as He gives your
needs to know.
Times will surely
be derived
with the answers
we’ve survived.

So, there ya go. Judy put the dogs outside for me
so I could concentrate on writing the poem hehehe.
Both of them were once again playing under my
feet leaving me no foot room LOL. Boys will be
boys 🙂 I wonder how Milo is going to take to the
snow when it starts coming in sheets hehehehe.
Benny loves it. It’s hard to get him to come back
inside when there’s snow outside LOL. I hope
Benny and Milo grow to be the best of friends 🙂
Yet they do have an age difference, being Benny
is only 1 year old and Milo is 8, but Milo still
seems to have a lot of pup in him. His breed is
known to live for 20 years so he has a long ways
to go and a lot of years with us. Heck, I’ll be
dead and gone before him LOL. I told Judy
that if I die in the wintertime to just toss my old
carcass out in the deep snow hehehe. I mean
I do love the snow 🙂 and love to play in it even
if my body gets a little ccccold hehehe. Yep,
I’m still a kid at heart. Ok so before I get stuck
in rambling mode totally, I need to tell you what
I tell you every week and that is, I wrote some
more poems and haiku. Yep, 10 more poems
with 2 of them being Christmas poems. Also
I wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers
out there. Ok I reckon it’s time for me to be
searching for that blasted off switch that just
loves to hide in the weirdest places, but not
before I wish you a most joyful and blessed
week. Remember, Jesus loves you and we do
too. Now to find that off switch. I think I can
see it poking its head out from behind the salt
shaker to see if there are any dogs around LOL.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Time To Rest

When I’m weak and
time has passed
time to rest
might come at last.
Yet some moments
rest appears
as just figments
yesteryears.
Now I sit here
thinking true
of what all that
I’m to do.
Life moves forward
leaving scenes
sometimes painted
as my dreams
and then I try
to do my best
to seek that moment
time to rest.

Secrets of Love

Some think that love is
how that you feel
or how that you think
with sexual appeal.
Some people view love
as just a mere time
that is filled solely
of things oh so fine.
Yet here’s the secret
of love that I know
and that it is something
Lord God makes to flow.
When seeing someone
of which you have found
that makes your heartbeat
to beat a loud sound.
Someone that surely
completes your own life
maybe as a good friend
or a husband or wife.
The secrets of love
are still not so clear,
but its existence
is still so sincere.
Look for the patterns
that God has inlaid
and the secrets of love
might surely be made.

The Fishing Hole

Within my memories
I now remember
certain times living as
times burning ember.
My Paw Paw and I
just fishing away
on through the night
until break of day.
The fishing hole
was sometimes a lake
or maybe a pond,
but fun no mistake.
We baited our hooks
and tossed them on in
the fishing hole
of time and agin.
We stayed so silent
on through the night,
but Paw Paw and me
were feeling alright.
We would then end
our nights fishing scene
with what that now
fills just like a dream.
Starting up the boat
to head back to shore
so to return then
just like before.
Now those days live on
as just memories
as that of shadows
of leaves on the trees.

Each Day Surmises

Minutes might seem as
just seconds to see
whether or not
you walk slow or flee.
Sometimes a moment
might seem as to freeze
leaving you standing
within a slight breeze.
Often a segment
of our time we view
will just continue
without me and you.
People and places
that you have forgot
will still continue then
whether or not.
Breezes will blow on
as each day surmises
whether or not
the sun or moon rises.

God and I

We found connections
as time moved along
through all my ventures
of which now are gone.
God and I now
are friends very true
found through Lord Jesus
that loves me and you.
I’ve had some wild times
that I’m not so proud,
but through those moments
are lessons endowed.
Now I see life in
a much different scale
now seeking Heaven
and not that of Hell.
God and I now
have heartbeats the same
found through the blessings
of Jesus Christ’s Name.
I’m still a sinner,
but forgiven through love
found now from Jesus
and Lord God above.

The Sounds of Lapping

When I am sitting here
or maybe napping
I can most often
here Benny lapping.
Drinking some water
from his water bowl
as his dog day then
maybe unfold.
He might then bark
at something he hears
or maybe something
of which then he fears.
Yet when he’s thirsty
he might be found
lapping his water
with that splashing sound.
The sounds of lapping
lets us to know true
that he is standing
behind me and you.

Rekindled Blessings

When your with worries
and cannot see clear
what you’re to do
sometime in the year,
rekindle blessings
from times long ago
and let them live now
wherever you go.
Good times from past days
will ease your mind
if you will let them
to help you unwind.
Rekindled blessings
can help you to see
clearer the moments
that God gave for free.
Use all your memoirs
of blessings sublime
to help you make it then
time after time.

Pointless Perception

Shadows of sadness
billow as clouds
pointless perception
seen through some shrouds.
Leaving your lessons
as just mere pain
makes them as torment
nothing to gain.
Pointless perception
flavors your sight
if you allow it
not to see right.
Let not perceptions
of all you see
become what billows
as sadness debris.
Seek for God’s blessings
in your perception
and not just pointless
through your deception.
Find out what’s better
for you then to view
that’s not so pointless
and sad to accrue.

In This Season

Emotional waves
of stages of time
come in this season
of Christmas design.
Pages of turnstiles
flavored with snow
display the seasons
with lights all aglow.
Awakening scenes
with many a sight
found within day
and also at night.
Trees all decked out
found on display
seen in ones windows
day after day.
Love found from Heaven
is in this season
found as Lord Jesus
the true very reason.
Emotional bonds
from times long ago
then are the blessings
found within snow.
Scenes as a turnstile
time has let in
this is true Christmas
forgiven from sin.

Snowflakes Fall

Soon the seasons
snowflakes fall
landing surely
over all.
Finding places
yet to land
where someone
might find to stand.
Snowflakes fall
in cold of winter
landing then there
front and center.
Giving signs
of Christmas day
in their own then
special way.
They all sparkle
in sunlight
and then maybe
through the night.
Showing scenes
of Christmastime
with their own
unique design.
Snowflakes fall
to soon be found
Christmastime
then all-round.
With their sparkles
everywhere
they remind
of answered prayer.

Haiku
for Oct 20, 2012

Life might seem hurried,
but be just your perception
and how you view it.

A violet grows
making beauty to be seen
in the distant fields.

Beyond now today
lies chances for tomorrow
and lessons to learn.

Leaves might be falling
as a frolicking lifestyle
of what they once were.

We will all stumble
but it’s learning from stumbles
that makes stepping stones.

Storm clouds of weather
might be found really scary,
but beautiful.

Feelings we’ve hidden
can emerge in wrong timeframes,
so don’t let them hide.

When blowing off steam
you might hurt ones around you
if you’re not careful.

Windows of folly
can be seen as just stupid
and not humorous.

Written in daylight
are the words of creation
that many don’t see.

Believing in God
needs the truth to live within
and then in your life.

Wintertime’s stages
are soon set into motion
as white snowflakes fall.

Mornings will arrive
as the sun makes its journey
throughout every night.

Wonders of people
are viewed within their own light
and with difference.

Leaving your anger
as something taken to bed
will cause you nightmares.

A flowing river
leaves many footprints to find
after it has ceased.

Blowing in the wind
only gives a small portion
of what that is there.

Venturous people
often get lost in there time
as pages are turned.

Not learning lessons
guarantees that they’ll return
as your reminders.

Actuality
is the truth found in your life,
not what you’ve made up.

When love comes your way,
make sure that it is truthful
and not fictitious.

Seasonal shadows
leaves their trails as memories
of spring to winter.
