ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

We survived the snow storm. Hehe actually it wasn’t
all that bad up this way. We did get a blizzard though,
but being we had no where to go, it wasn’t all that bad.
It’s 24F degrees right now. The high today’s supposed
to be 25F degrees hehehe. We’re expecting more snow
tomorrow and Tuesday, but in my book I think we’ve
got enough. I went out earlier today and played with
the boys. I went out again with them just a bit ago to
play with them, but Milo was ready to come back in
almost as fast as we got out there LOL. Benny always
wants to go out and play hehehe. He thought he would
try to make his way over to where he used to play, but
found that the snow was much deeper than his little legs.
Hehehe I watched as he managed to maneuver himself
out of it. Got a few pictures of him LOL. He wasn’t
in any trouble. I was just a few feet away and could get
to him if he couldn’t do it himself. Milo was sitting on
the porch watching his little brother being silly hehehe.
Isn’t our life exciting!? We do find our bits of laughter
in the silly things that happen around here. These two
boys have most surely brought us a world a happiness.
I fixed Judy and I some breakfast a bit ago and now
Judy is in the kitchen washing dishes. It’s bright and
sunny outside. I almost went snow blind when I went
out to play with the boys and take pictures. I had to
wait a while when I came in for my eyes to adjust LOL.
Benny and Milo just squint their eyes and look away.
Benny has a pair of doggie shades. It looks like I will
have to buy Milo a pair as well. Maybe even a doggie
cap the same as Benny’s, but that will have to wait
until we have some extra cash, which I might add
might be a while. Right now we’re doing good to buy
dog food hehehe. Life is good. It would be a whole
lot better if what ever it is that is making me feel as
though I were run over by a bus would leave me alone.
I’m tired of being sick, but I can’t let it prevent me
from playing with my boys. I love them both and
Judy does too. Yes we spoil them hehehe. They are
good boys. They’re well behaved and very lovable.
Speaking of which both of them are lying in their
little doggie beds in the floor right beside me and
Judy. I grabbed my camera to take a picture of
them and Benny raised his head to look at me and
smile. He laid his head back down then and went
back to sleep. He has great hearing hehehehehe.
He heard me turn on the camera which I might add
makes no sounds LOL. Oh yea here’s some great
news. You’ve heard me mention that Judy and I
met in a poetry egroup and she too writes poetry,
well she’s got a poetry book that’s being published
and will soon be for sell in paper back as well as
Kindle Ebook. Judy’s book is entitled Moonlight
and Owls. I’ll let you know when it’s available.
I have also been accepted by the publisher, but
I have almost 8000 poems and tons of haiku to
go through to decide which ones to publish and
that might take a long while LOL. They wanted
to publish my journal, but that’d be hard to do,
being how would I begin, being it’s an on going
story. I might yet publish my journal in a book,
but not any time soon hehehehe. Judy published
80 poems being she nor anybody else that I know
of writes as much as I do hehehe. Maybe one day
I will geterdone. In the mean time I’ll continue as
I have always done. Yet for that matter, I will
continue writing this journal even after it is done.
My journal is the most important part of my
writings. I began writing this back in 1995 and
it was as is now, my way of giving a smile to
ones that are in need of one and teaching ones
to find God in their lives. It’s not about money.
It’s about blessings which money cannot buy.
The materialistic aspects of our lives are no
more than dust in the wind and can be lost in
a moment, but God’s blessings will always be
found. His love is better than money being His
Son paid the highest price for our lives. Let
your horrendous yesterdays to be just as tides
that has left lessons. Use them to make a better
today and tomorrow. If you have enjoyed my
weekly journal I am very pleased. I hope you
have also found some of my poetry as a way
of making each day better. Remember, this is
just a moment and it too shall pass. So, now
that I have gone and rambled once again, I think
it’s time for me to be taking a little visit 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 away I go back through my recollection
to that place that I like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. I think I may have found a good title
just a few lines back, but as they always say,
the proof is in the pudding hehehehehehehehe.
Here goes nothing!

Horrendous Yesterdays

Yesterdays decisions
might be just a phase
found upon our thinking of
horrendous yesterdays.
Left and right decisions
might be just confused
as horrendous yesterdays
seem a bit abused.
Let those days remembered
to be as what that’s done
learning lessons surely
from what you thought was fun.
Many times our thinking
is just out of whack
with horrendous yesterdays
that were not that black.
So let your minutes passing
become better seen
not horrendous yesterdays
but a learning dream.

Ok, so there ya go again hehe. I hope my rambling
didn’t put ya to sleep LOL. This poem was one of
which that stemmed from my many ventures through
life that I recalled at the time the worst, but I now
see the lessons I learned through them. You might
also look back time to time and see your flaws that
are helping you today. We or should I say hehehe
most people learn from their mistakes. I’ve seen
a few that never seem to ever freaking learn. Life
is a teacher and God should be your guide. Let Him
show you the right path through prayer. Now a
bit about my brother in law DD. He is doing a bit
better or should I say, doing as I do often, putting
on a tough face. I know he has a long way to go,
but God is watching over him. Keep DD in your
prayers and pray that the cancer is eradicated
or at least giving him some peace as well as my
sister. I wish I lived closer, but prayer knows no
distance. I also want to send out my prayers to
all of those that got caught in Nemo. I pray
for Lord God’s Mighty Hands to comfort you.
So, now with that said, I reckon I’m needing
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 one about our
two little boys and a Valentines poem to my
loving wife 🙂 Also I wrote 22 more haiku
for all of my haiku lovers out there hehehehe.
Enjoy! Now to find that freaking off switch
that just loves to play hide and seek, but
not before I wish you a most wonderful God
filled week. Remember, Jesus loves you and
we do too. Ok, so where’s that off switch at
this week? Where ya hiding ya little whipper
snapper? I see ya poking your head out from
behind Milo’s ears. Get over here ya silly.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehe

Winter’s White

Scenes around me
day and night
now are displayed
winter’s white.
Wind is blowing
as it snows
while it flavors
where it goes.
Scents of winter’s
greatest scene
briskly covers
grass of green.
Winter’s white
that now displays
seems to go for
many days.
Every essence
day and night
seems as flavors
winter’s white.

Then Returns

Times of troubles
that we’ve found
might be seen
right back around.
Once again
if you’ve not learned
then returns
to be discerned.
Then the makings
of a day
come profusely
much to say.
God allows us
ditto times
to be found
in our designs.
Then returns
for much to see
lessons from
our history.

Beyond This Moment

When staring out with
wishing minds
things might form
some bad designs
while wishing for
something somewhere
beyond this moment
without prayer.
Don’t allow your
wishing well
to be as troubles
daily jail.
Beyond this moment
there is found
things of which
just might astound.
Let God’s blessings
fill your cup
beyond this moment
that’s close up.
For the things
you think you see,
might turn out
as best to be.
Let your faith to
hold you true
in the things
you say and do.

When A Storm Comes

When weather seems
to blow you down
get back up
and turn around.
Right behind you
is God’s Hand
to help you when
you cannot stand.
When a storm comes
seek His Face
and be filled with
Holy Grace.
Let not problems
that you find
become echoes
in your mind.
When a storm comes
let God’s Love
bring you sunshine
from above.

The Best of Days

Now I sit here
as I wonder
thinking of those
days of yonder.
The best of days
of way back when
now just live
a little dim.
Yet those moments
I remember
the best of days
is still an ember.
So on days
of missing time
I seek pictures
to remind.
To fill those moments
bitter grays
I will seek
the best of days.
But of course
the days ahead
the best of days
are surely fed.
So with that
as time moves on
the best of days
are never gone.
Each day forward
gives a view
the best of days
is found brand new.

Awesome Thoughts

While sitting here
with me myself
I pull some thoughts
from highest shelf.
Awesome thoughts
of God Divine
living in my
deepest mind.
Then while thinking
surely so
awesome thoughts
will turn to snow.
Bright white wonders
that I see
are as portions
found in me.
Out my window
snow is found
awesome thoughts
of common ground.
Scenic wonders
found today
awesome thoughts
are on display.

Sounds I Heard

I heard some sounds
upon my door
scratching as
a time before.
The sounds I heard
were that so sweet
as my doggies
little feet.
They were wanting
out to go
in the winters
whitest snow.
So I got up
and walked true
to let them do
what all they do.
They then went out
every way
wanting merely
just to play.
I saw them running
in the snow
leaving trails then
to and fro.
Then again
their time occurred
walking in
with sounds I heard.

For Benny and Milo 🙂

A Windy Day

I find my blessings
in my thoughts
often when I’m
found in knots.
When some troubles
come in view
I can see
what God can do.
A windy day
of then and there
can be calmed
within a prayer.
The inward feelings
calmed with grace
leaves a smile
upon my face.
A windy day
cannot defeat
all God’s blessings
I accrete.
Troubled moments
will and way
can survive
a windy day.
All you need
is God so true
to live and breathe then
within you.

True Emotions

Right beside me
often found
is my love of
common ground.
She’s my blessing
from Lord God
true emotions
should applaud.
Timeless doorways
have been seen
her and I
within a dream.
Together heartbeats
become one
true emotions
dawning sun.
Our hearts make a
great design
that which forms
a Valentine.

From Bill Pearce
I love you hon 🙂

Withered Threads

Age finds numbers
one by one
wither threads
of then and done.
Time is counted
age to age
as we’re reading
every page.
Moments turnstiles
come to be
withered threads
of history.
Wrinkled skin
of riverbeds
comes from timeless
withered threads.
Sometimes potholes
found at glance
only display
moments stance.
Withered threads
that we behold
need not be
just growing old.
They can be
the things entwined
with the lessons
in our mind.
Then those withered
threads we see
become lessons
you and me.

Haiku
for Feb 9, 2013

Windows of winter
come as white snowflakes falling
to cover the ground.

Cherishing moments
can become mere illusions
when time moves forward.

Various turnstiles
open and close as patterns
that might confuse you.

Today marks a time
that yesterday knew not of.
It was just a guess.

Shadows of ourselves
walk on as we carry on
doing what we do.

Imitating me
cannot be done perfectly.
You can’t see inside.

Some flowers will bloom
even after wintertime,
for they are prepared.

Tomorrow awaits
for today to finish up
with all it must do.

Dwelling over time
will only give you sadness.
See what’s good today.

Fainthearted people
leave their chances awaiting
as they sit and stare.

Know when to be bold
and when you need not to be,
for there are moments.

Scenes often hidden
are the ones we must look for.
Sometimes they’re the best.

Life can be better
if you let go of the past
and cherish today.

Morning comes dawning
as the sun rises to shine
even if it’s hidden.

Falling on your face
doesn’t mean that it’s the end.
It means you’re learning.

A forest of thought
fills a mind of perception
while each thing is viewed.

Belief in Jesus
won’t get you into Heaven.
You must love Jesus.

When reading a book
do you flip on to the end?
Some try that with life.

Evolving people
often have wrong expectations
of what they should be.

Battered emotions
leave many in confusion
of what true love is.

Pouring out a thought
as trickles of a river
gives life to its words.

Hearing the wind blow
brings thoughts of winter alive
while watching snowflakes.
