ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How are you today? The weather is cold and windy up this
way today. Benny is feeling better . We had him neutered
Wednesday and he has been a tad grumpy and sore which is
understandable. I would be a tad grumpy if it was done to
me. Yeppers it’s things like that which make me glad that I’m
not a dog. Anyways, Benny is back to his frisky playful self.
He hopped up in bed with me and wanted to play when I was
wanting to get some rest LOL. Milo had hopped up and was
lying at my feet in the bed. He was also trying to get some
rest. Hehehe I mean, Milo is of course the same age as us
in human years. He’s 8 years old which makes him 56 years
old in our years. Judy and I are 56 🙂 He’s having to deal
with a few things like I am such as arthritis. The poor thing.
He still has quite a few good years left in him and still loves
to run and play with Benny. I might find my ending days
long before he does and believe you me I am anxious to go
home to Heaven. I’m tired of hurting, but until that time
comes, here I’ll stay and I’ll make the best of it and enjoy
all that I can. I have a lovely wife that I enjoy spending my
time with. So I’m alive today and therefore here I go with
my rambling again hehehe. I’m a rambling man ya know!
Judy and I had a nice Thanksgiving. We had Semi fried
Chicken bought from the grocery store and mash potatoes
along with pumpkin pie for dessert 🙂 Neither of us likes
turkey and the only chicken place (KFC) in Houlton ME
closed a month or so ago. So we have to buy any fried
chicken we get from the grocery store dag nabbit &%$#.
LOL, at least we still have a Pizza Hut. If that ever closes
down then I will be angry. This town hasn’t or should I say
our nearest town hasn’t got much in the form of choices
for restaurants. Being Houlton is 8 miles from where we
live and New Limerick has only the one little store called
Cameron’s. Yeppers, we live out in the boonies hehehe.
The good thing about that is I can play my conga drums
and not worry too much about disturbing anyone hehehe.
There’s not much to do around here, but I try to make
the best of it. I think you can guess what I do to entertain
myself LOL. Take pictures, play FarmTown, watch TV
and play with Benny and Milo and yes of course Judy 🙂
I can’t wait for the first big snows to begin. It always
gets so beautiful. In any sense, there is quite a lot for
me to be happy for. Yet the closer it gets to Christmas,
the more I miss my family and friends. So that’s my life.
I do thank God for Judy and her wonderful family.
I love them all dearly. Now onto another topic hehehe.
The wind is blowing furiously outside, but it looks like
the tarp I put over our picnic table and Benny’s dog
house is still holding tight. I also managed to get our
little grill under the tarp 🙂 But if the winds keep on as
they are, I might find the tarp blown in the next county
by tonight LOL. Oh well I will deal with that later 🙂
Judy is still in bed being that we stay up all night and
don’t go to bed until early morning. I’m up, because
I had to get started writing this to you. So here I sit
with Benny at my feet in his little doggy bed. Milo is
still lying on the bed at Judy’s feet. He’s an old dude
like me and needs his sleep hehehe. Though he hasn’t
got all of the ailments that I have and I thank God for
that. I wouldn’t wish this on anybody. Hehehehe Ok,
maybe a few LOL! I think I hear Milo in there rustling
about. He might be moseying in here in a bit hehehe.
I sound like a Texan huh 🙂 That be because I am a
freaking Texan hehehe. I ain’t a Mainer. They all
think I talk funny hehehe. Oh well, I think they talk
funny so we’re even LOL. The first time I heard Judy
say Wicked Cool, I was a tad confused. I had never
heard that phrase before. Although, I think it’s a
phrase that all Northeasterners use. Not something
you hear from down south unless you’re from up this
way hehehe. I’ve tried using a few of their phrases,
but for some reason it seems silly when I say them.
LOL about as silly as it sounds when one of them
tries to mimic our phrases LOL. God has given us
all of our distinct differences and characteristics so
that we might grow beyond what one personality
would bring. Be the best of who that God had
intended you to be. Don’t lose focus on who you
are. Let God guide you through your pathways of
decisions. Don’t just try to be exactly like someone
else. It’s Ok to try to follow their path if it’s good,
but let your own unique gifts from God shine in the
makings. So I guess it’s about time for me to begin
searching back through all that I’ve written here
to 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 off to that place of my recollection that I like
to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I believe I may have
found a good title. Now let’s see what if anything
at all I can do with it. Here goes…………………….

A Tad Confused

Sometimes some minutes
leave with a frown
found in the moments
of up hill gone down.
Many times ventures
found gone astray
are just a moment
that’s not gone our way.
Some a tad confused
leave shadows to find
found in the figments
deep in their mind.
Let not those minutes
to make up your view.
Look for the blessings
in then thereunto.
Don’t let a moment
to make you all bruised.
Remember that it might be
just a tad confused.

Ok so I hope that makes sense to ya 🙂 I will have to wait
till later to send this being the internet server is down right
now. I just called them and they said they are working on
it and it should be up and running in an hour or so. That’s
life hehehe. I might just send this using my pioneer email,
but I will have to change the email addy in it so that my
egroups will get it. Although I’m hoping that they manage
to get my WT server up and running before that. We shall
see huh! Let’s see if I can get this finished first hehehehe.
Judy’s still in bed and yes Milo is still on the bed with her.
Benny though has moved into the bedroom as well and
lying on the floor next to the bed. I’ve been abandoned!
Hehehe oh well, I’ll wake em up when I finish this and
fix something for us all to eat. I guess it’s time for me
to be telling ya what I tell ya every week and that is, I
wrote some more poems and haiku. Yeppers 10 more
poems and 5 of them once again being Christmas poems.
Also I wrote 22 more haiku for all of my haiku lovers
out there. I hope you find something you like. Now it’s
time for me to be searching for that ornery 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 off
switch. Ah Hah, I see ya hiding in the corner behind
that fan. Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Significant Time

A little rhythm,
a little rhyme
brings us to
significant time.
Sometimes a moment,
sometimes a view
significant time
is then thereunto.
Maybe found raspy,
maybe not so
significant time
is found to and fro.
Looking with clear eyes,
looking with haze
significant time
is still in the gaze.
Let not your rhythm,
let not your rhyme
prevent you from seeing
significant time.

My Whitish View

Outside my window
of each morning new
I seek the presence
of my whitish view.
Snowflakes a falling
then found front and center
my whitish view
displays every winter.
Then as the snowflakes
fall to the ground
I know that Christmas is
soon to be found.
Looking through windows
of here there I see
heart felt emotions
are happy and free.
My whitish view
is found Christmas morn
scenes then with snowflakes
which blessings adorn.

Heaven So Gently

Minutes come quickly
as time moves along
displaying pages
from dusk unto dawn.
Heaven so gently
will paint every hill
with that of snowflakes
for then to fulfill.
The ticking of essence
comes throughout the night
displaying beauty
that’s found morning light.
Heaven so gently
finds ways then to please
with all the white snow
that’s found on the trees.
Glistening with ventures
each Christmas displays
times found so joyful
each heart does amaze
Christmastimes pleasure
excites what we view
when we see snowflakes
as magic so true.
Painting as wonders
when Christmas is found
there in the trees
and there on the ground.
Sometimes the snowflakes
will land in the night
waiting to display
their Heavenly white.

Life Sometimes

Often our ventures
that time does bring forth
lead to directions
of south maybe north.
Maybe found west ways,
or maybe then east
some may seem better
and some maybe least.
Life sometimes gives us
the pages to turn
with some directions
that we’re to discern.
Often our problems
that time does display
are just the portions
within the wrong way.
Many times portholes
will show us the signs
given from Jesus
in our life sometimes.

Showing True

Soon comes Christmas
showing true
with the snowflakes
every view.
Minutes tick on
to its time
showing true
so great divine.
Christmas moments
come to be
showing true
for us to see.
Scenes around us
come in sight
as the Christmas
snows of white.
All the magic
found that day
brings me heartfelt
Jesus way.

Scents of Christmas

In the night of
winter delight
scents of Christmas
bring us a sight.
Special aromas
come into view
as that of Christmas lights
red, green and blue.
The scents of Christmas
are to be found
then when the snowflakes
land on the ground.
Yet often snowflakes
might not be seen
like unto Texas
a Christmas of green.
But it’s the thought that
is what is true
bringing the wonders
then into view.
Let all the snowflakes
that Christmas can show
live on as wonders
as white Christmas snow.
The scents of Christmas
are then greater seen
than that of any
wonderful dream.
Let all those scents
of Christmas to fly
showing the love from
sweet Adonai.

A Manger Scene

A sign of Christmas
here and there
displays as
a breath of air.
Lights that flicker
in the night
colors seen
within moonlight.
A manger scene
is sweetly laid
found in daytime
in the shade.
Then so wondrous
is the stage
set up nicely
age to age.
Meaningful moments
glistening true
light up emotions
then into view.
But it’s the sweetest
found so serene
that comes with Jesus
in a manger scene.

Beyond The Reef

When ones troubles
come at glance
every moment
might entrance.
Beyond the reef
of sudden pain
there can be
something to gain.
Often hurry
brings the rocks
into daily
moments docks.
Beyond the reef
is hope to find
with a little
change of mind.
Let your struggles
disbelief
find some peace
beyond the reef.

Seasons Share

Each day displays
seasons shadows
painted on the
hills and meadows.
Seasons share
each day to come
with the sight of
each new sun.
They might seem to
fuss and fight,
but the seasons
are alright.
Seasons share
their own existence
sometimes from
a little distance.
Yet the seasons
share their sights,
in the days
and in the nights.
Time gives pathways
to their time
and their seasons
own design.
So share surely
they must do
as they wait for
their own view.

Just Listen

Hear as the raindrops
fall to the ground.
Find all the blessings
then to be found.
Just listen to the wind
as it blows thereunto
and watch all the things
so Heavenly true.
Let loose of anger
from all you remember.
Now find some peace
as times burning ember.
Just listen to your heart
as it beats in you mind
and hear all the blessings
from Jesus divine.
Take the time to find
what all you’ve been missin
by silently praying
as you then just listen.

Haiku
for Nov 24, 2012

Explosions of time
are fueled by anger and hate
that God could of healed.

Letting misfortune
to guide your every footstep
could become good luck.

The winds of winter
blow furiously through
sometimes bringing snow.

Sometimes our questions
are answers in their own way
seen by another.

Belief is needed
to find what cannot be seen,
but time can prevail.

God gives us choices
to go our own directions
and learn what we must.

No spirit belief
will prove your own ignorance,
for they do exist.

Love is a value
that goes far beyond money
for it can’t be bought.

Some things we wait for
might not be worth waiting for,
so understand truth.

Looking in mirrors
finds you often looking back
a bit different.

Guides to tomorrow
will often mislead our paths
for their own laughter.

Afflicted people
are often hidden from view
because we won’t look.

Anger management
needs to begin with yourself
and then with others.

A breath of Jesus
brings forth a wondrous blessing
that can end despair.

Believing in now
lets the truth of moments heal
so you can move on.

A shadow is found
as a glimmer of yourself
and what you portray.

Gradient blessings
display their many blessings
as time moves along.

A rain shower comes
as a fragrant beginning
often found bitter.

Sometimes a flower
finds a home in winters snow
and lives for springtime.

Today’s own answers
will change as time moves along
onto tomorrow.

Bitter sweet essence
is the sight of Christmastimes snow
that many must dig.

A puppy dogs eyes
brings alive many heartbeats
that are full of love.
