Companionship

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

It’s getting closer to Christmas 🙂 Yes it still has over
a month to go, but that’s simply my favorite day and
I can’t wait for it to get here. The only problem is, it’s
gone so quickly. The day of course, but the feeling will
always live on as it does each year. Thanksgiving isn’t
too far away. Judy and I are enjoying watching our
two little boys playing together. They are surely best
buds. When one goes out to potty, the other wants
to go along. I’ve got them trained to when I let them
in, they stop just inside and sit to wait for us to take
their Ecollars off. Of course sometimes they are just
a tad anxious and go running down the hall, but when
we call them, they come back and sit down so we can
take the Ecollars off. They’re good boys. We couldn’t
of found two better dogs. They love to sleep close to
us in bed. Most of times they cuddle to our legs hehe.
That though is a bad spot hehehe being I tend to move
my legs a lot due to aches and pains from arthritis 🙂
Oh well, that’s how they like to sleep. Benny though
usually after a few hours ends up hopping off of the
bed and going to lie in his own little bed next to us
in the floor. They both have beds in the floor, but
this is how it ends up LOL. Oh well, we’re a close
knit family here at the Pearce’s Place. The weather
up this ways is looking more and more like winter.
Yeppers we had a bit of snow the other night. Not
much! Just enough to paint the outdoors white 🙂
Benny and Milo love it. I’m sure Milo has seen a
few winters up here, but this will be Benny’s first.
We got Benny from a lady in Missouri back on the
9th of March this year and there was still a lot of
snow on the ground and even still snowing, but
nothing like it was earlier this year, so Benny is
in for a treat hehehe. I’ll never forget when we
first moved up here December 1 2007. I thought
our trailer was perched upon a mound of snow 🙂
I never saw any ground until around April 2008.
I finally saw a bit of Earth peeking out from under
the snow hehehe. This old Texan has seen a lot of
snow since then. Of course I have seen a lot from
my trips to the Colorado mountains when I was
younger. Today the high is supposed to be 37F,
but right now at 2:40 PM it’s 33F degrees and it
feels like it. It’s still warm compared to what it
will be as winter fully sets in hehehe. There’s not
been much happening up this way other than us
just enjoying playing with our little boys and also
watching them playing together as we had hoped
they would. Milo was slow into wanting to play
with Benny, but he finally got into the swing of
things LOL. Benny’s a happy little pooch now 🙂
The stores have all started stocking Christmas
stuff. I love the sights and sounds of Christmas.
Even the smells at Christmastime bring joy to
my heart. There’s nothing like it! Even the night
air exhilarates the feel of Christmas as the snow
covers the ground and breezes blow. Judy and
I had a great time on her birthday, but I was
unable to buy her much of anything due to being
low on funds, but we did go to Shop & Save so
she could pick out a little birthday cake hehehehe.
I ate a couple of small pieces, but can’t handle
the sweets that much. She told me not to worry
about a birthday present. She’s already got it
and his name is Milo 🙂 I didn’t want another dog,
but decided to let her have it as long as it was
well behaved and Milo is a good boy. Him and
Benny have bonded as friends and brothers 🙂
I’m sitting here drinking a Yoohoo for my brunch.
Hehehe we don’t ever go to bed until early in the
morning LOL so 2 PM is morning to us hehehe.
Yeppers, around this place it’s a different time
zone LOL. Judy and I were nightowls when we
met in 2001 and still are LOL. I worked night
shift for almost 30 years off and on, so those
hours are locked in my brain hehehe. Judy was
working the evening shift at Elm Tree Diner, so
she too stayed up till early in the morning often.
When I came down with Ulcerative colitis and
then with Crohn’s in 1994, it slowed me down
and then caused me to be disabled in 2001 due
to many strokes caused by me trying to keep on
working as I had before. Life was a rocky one,
but I met Judy earlier that year and we had met
in person then in August of 2001. We found that
we had a lot in common. We had fallen in love
earlier that year as we spent many hours on the
phone together and even at times sleeping with
our phones next to our ears hehehe. True love!
My dad had told me that someone was out there
for me. LOL I just wish he would of told me I
was gonna have to fly 2100 miles to find her 🙂
Anyways, God has put us together and we are
united as one with our new little boys giving us
love and companionship as each day comes to
pass. God can work miracles, but He needs us
to trust in Him and let Him do His part and us
do ours. He won’t do for us what we are able
to do for ourselves. I stepped out on faith and
flew to Maine as He had guided me and here we
are today 11 years later with love abundant 🙂
Let God show His miracles, but don’t just park
yourself on the sofa and expect Him to do it all
for you. Also sometimes He has other plans for
you that you may have never thought of. Be open
to His Will. Now that I have gone and reminisced
the many years that have passed, I guess it’s time
for me to revisit all that I have written here and
see if I can find a good word or phrase that might
work well 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 to see
what I can find. I think I found a good title, but
we shall see hehehe HUH! Here goes!

Companionship

A simple thought
of one another
can make life
a friend and brother.
Companionship
is one to find
deep within
a God filled mind.
Life times struggles
will be found,
but there’s peace
on Solid Ground.
Let Lord Jesus
show you true
how to make
a better you.
Finding ventures
turn and flip
is better with
companionship.

OK, so that might not be one of my best. Oh well 🙂
I hope you enjoyed my long winded rambling hehehe.
Yes I know, I probably put ya to sleep huh. It’s OK.
Maybe ya got some much needed rest hehehehehe.
Well, Benny and Milo are lying down in the floor now
in-between me and Judy. They’re in their little beds.
Milo snores time to time LOL and wakes himself up.
I have a special prayer request for my friend Donald.
I call him Tiny. He is 85 years old and now his health
has made a turn for the worst. He might not make it
to Christmas. He’s an old friend of mine from the 70’s.
His nick name is tiny, but he’s 6’11”. According to
my friend in Texas (Robin) Tiny has shriveled up to
where he only weighs about a 100 pounds or less and
his body is shutting down. Please send your prayers
to him. I love this man as my brother. He was there
for me when I needed someone and I feel sad that
I’m too far away to be by his side, but I can pray
and so I do always. I pray that God releases him
of his torment and pain and soon allows him to
go home to Heaven. It would be mean of me to
wish Tiny to suffer any longer just because I don’t
want him to die, but we must die before we can
live. Yet our time is marked in the eyes of God.
Until then we should do our best to show love to
one another and not hate. Find the likenesses in
others, not just the differences. Now I think it’s
time for me to be telling ya what I tell ya every
week and that is, I wrote some more poems 🙂
Yeppers, 10 more poems with 6 of them this
time being Christmas poems. Also I once again
wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers
out there. I hope you find some that bring you
joy. Now it’s time to be finding that off switch
that loves to hide from me, but not before I
wish you a most wonderful God filled week.
Remember, Jesus loves you and we do too.
Ok, now to find that off switch hehehehehe.
Ah hah, there ya are ya little whippersnapper.
Found ya trying to hide under Milo this time.
Get your booty out from under there hehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Winter’s Fury

Soon the echoes
winter’s fury
will be found
within a flurry.
White snow falling
here and there
in a flurry
in the air.
Winter’s fury
might just seem
as a raging
whitish stream.
Snow flakes falling
down to Earth
as they find a
life rebirth.
Scenes will blossom
winter’s fury
without question
in a flurry.

Seasons Charm

Beginnings of Christmas
come in a way
seasonal greetings
day after day.
The seasons charm
is found to be
repeated heartbeats
history.
Even the aromas
of Christmas we smell
bring us remembered
times of so well.
Found in the cities
Christmas is seen
that of a child
with joyful agleam.
Also in the country
is found seasons charm
as a great painting
there on a farm.
It doesn’t matter
where that you live.
It only matters
if you wish to give.

Thanksgiving’s Gift

So often people
will leave out some one
that of Thanksgiving
father or son.
Maybe a daughter
or mother alike
might find Thanksgiving
a little less sight.
Some think Thanksgiving
is just for the food
as they continue
to act oh so rude.
Thanksgiving’s gift
is that to be shared
even when lifestyles
are slight then impaired.
Be thankful for Jesus
and all He has given
letting His blessings
to be daily driven.
Let not your differences
tear you apart.
Thanksgiving’s gift
should live in your heart.

Heavenly Sight

Within a doorway
of wintertime’s sight
there is a blessing
of snowflakes in flight.
Heavenly pages
turn as a book
written as journals
there for a look.
Christmastimes ages
are then displayed
from all the snowflakes
Heavenly laid.
Then in a heartbeat
time comes around
displaying beauty
then to be found.
People will hang up
lights red and green
even some others
on a manger scene.
All then together
found in the night
there is a blessings
Heavenly sight.

Portions of Dreams

Children of Christmas
wait in their beds
for portions of dreams
to dance in the heads.
Scenes such as snowflakes
in their designs
dance on as blessings
within their minds.
Portions of dreams
pour out just like water
on father and son
and mother and daughter.
Christmas with passion
found through the year
brings us a portion
of dreams to endear.
Don’t let the bad times
to hide all the love
given so freely
from Lord God above.

Meaningful Slumber

Taking a blessing
and making a blunder
will tear apart
a meaningful slumber.
Letting your anger
to live in your sleep
will cause your waking
to be more to keep.
Try and resolve what
anger that’s there
maybe by talking
and saying a prayer.
Seek for the reason
your anger’s in mind
and then make peace
within that design.
Meaningful slumber
will then be seen
found in a heartbeat
there in a dream.

Oh So Jolly

Santa’s sleigh bells
through the night
ring as doorbells
to delight.
Oh so jolly
Santa Claus
sails across
with oohs and awes.
In the nightlight
he is found
in the sky
and on the ground.
Even rooftops
hear his laugh
in his Christmas
nightly pass.
Christmas Eve
is found with joy
with a little girl
and little boy.
Oh so jolly
comes with glee
for their mornings
yet to see.

A Life of Seconds

A second will pass
with minutes in turn
giving us moments
to then discern.
A life of seconds
ticks on real fast
what was the future
then is the past.
Scenes pass by quickly
as seconds move on
displaying evening
then unto dawn.
Many times seconds
will be displayed
as all the journeys
mistakenly made.
A life of seconds
turns into days
often from minutes
seemed as a maze.
Let God to guide you
as time moves along
and you will end up
where you belong.

Hurried To See

The children awakened
from their night’s dreams
to see all the glory
of Christmassy scenes.
Looking for presents
up under the tree
that dear old Santa
gave them each for free.
They hurried to see
each wrapped box with joy
to try to find then
a doll or toy.
The children saw then
upon their TV
others without any
Christmas for free.
So they asked mother
and dad what to do
and they answered clearly
to give them anew.
So those sweet children
gathered their toys
to give to the unfortunate
little girls and boys.
Then those two children
smile with great glee,
for they had learned
what’s Christmas for free.

Jesus in Christmas

With coming of ages
many forget
Jesus in Christmas
when pathways are met.
So many people
lose track of time
leaving their heartbeats
in bad design.
Jesus in Christmas
should always be
found as the focus
truly to see.
Yet many people
lose touch of Him
and let their values
hang on a limb.
Don’t let the season
to pass you on by.
Keep Jesus in Christmas
and sweet Adonai.

Haiku
for Nov 10, 2012

Mornings remember
what the nightlife has displayed
maybe not clearly.

Love is a journey
that many find with much trouble.
Time gives the answers.

Yes is overused
as many will attempt to
make others happy.

Leftover heartaches
will burden your tomorrows
if they’re not dealt with.

Winter brings shadows
of snowflakes falling to Earth
and designing the ground.

A choice is a chance
to change your own direction
and choose other paths.

Listening for time
might find your ear to the wall
in the wrong timeframe.

Points of a pattern
make up the whole that’s discerned,
but are not the whole.

Beyond emotion
lies stories that are hidden
inside of the mind.

Believing in love
gives a chance for it to grow,
but not how it grows.

Lights of the night sky
glimmer as many stars shine
along with moonlight.

Learning from your past
might come as many repeats
that you’ve forgotten.

Various doorways
open and close with choices,
some bad and some good.

Beyond our eyesight
are things we can’t imagine,
but yet they exist.

A true friend in time
will be there no matter what.
Even through anger.

We are connected
as links to bicycle chains
that often slip gear.

The breath of true love
is given through Jesus Christ
found through His Father.

A glance at your life
might not see the true picture.
Take time to see it.

Passionate moments
leave footprints that others see,
so keep respectful.

Clinking of glasses
gives knowledge of emotions
that ones wish to share.

Pathways of Heaven
are made one step at a time
with stumbling blocks.

The snow of winter
hides the remains of summer
with blankets of white.
