ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Well, I am being forced to write my journal and all on this dumb
computer and send it to Judy’s to do it up the way I like it as well
as be able to send it, being that Windows 9 sucks and will not work
to send to my grouped mail. I have redone the groups and it will
not keep the email addresses in the groups. I noticed it the first
time I sent email from it. My grouped emails only sent to maybe
1 or 2 and in some cases wouldn’t send because it said there were
no email addresses to send to. So if you are using Windows XP,
don’t get Windows 8 unless you have absolutely no choice. I’m
still going to send my other PC to my friends Ron and Mandy
in Texas and hopefully they can fix it. Then maybe I can get
back to my writings as always. Until then, I will play ping pong
with computers to try and get this done. Boy this ticks me off,
but at the moment I haven’t any other choice. So, it’s off of my
bickering “hopefully” and onto a maybe lighter subject hehehe.
How was your weekend? Ours was OK. We finished a game
of hidden object and are ready to start another. We did our
farms on Farm Town again. They have added another level
so Judy and I now have 18 farms on each profile LOL Yes,
I know it’s not much of a life, but I do get a little peace while
messing with the game. The weather up this way is warming
up a bit. It’s supposed to get up to 52 F today and right now
it’s 40 F degrees at 5:45 in the A.M. We’ve still got a few
patches of snow here and there. Benny is always looking for
them to play in LOL. He’s gonna miss the snow when it is
all gone. I won’t! Nope, I’ll be happy when it is all gone
and the weather warms up a little. We’re sick of these high
electric bills from having to use our electric radiator heaters.
Thankfully we live on a hill with no obstructions, because
that gives us a good breeze. Nope we don’t have an AC.
The air conditioner that was in this house when we moved
in quit working after the first year. The motor froze up
and for that matter, where it is in the living room, it did
very little good anyways. We spend most of our time in
here “the PC room” and our bed room. Hey, it’s not like
we go bouncing from room to room hehehe. We watch TV
in here and in the bedroom. We only go in the living room
when we have company, which I might add, is on a very
rare occasion. Nope, we don’t have many people visiting
us. We live a very quiet life hehehehehehe. sometimes.
Nope, it ain’t quiet when I’m beating on my conga drums.
LOL would you believe it, this stupid Windows Live email
program said that ain’t wasn’t a word LOL. I had to add
it saying yes it is. I want Windows XP back with my good
old Outlook Express. You can’t install Outlook Express
on Windows 8. Oh well, back to my rambling hehehehehe.
It rained a bit yesterday as well as last night, but it isn’t
raining today at least not now. My eyes are very tired
being I haven’t been able to get any sleep. This computer
has been wearing on me. I’ve kept trying to fix the darned
email, but it just will not comply. Hopefully after I get this
all written, I can lie down and get some rest. I’m asking
God for a little peace. Please Lord, let my mind to find
some rest. I find that when I sit in continuous prayer that
I can often relax. Not always , but most times. There
are times that it takes me a while to wind down, being
I’m in too much pain. Yet, God hears my prayers and
slowly gives me rest. If you’re in need of some peace
away from the turmoil of life, then take it to God, for
He is there for us one and all awaiting to give to us
what we need. I know, I often let the pressures that
life throws my way to wear on my mind, but I sooner
or later give it to Him, because I’m not strong enough.
Let God help you today. His Son is waiting to pick you
up and dust you off, but you must allow Him. Now, it’s
time for me to begin my little search back through all
that I’ve written here to see if I can find a good word or
phrase that might work for the title for today’s brand
new poem. So, it’s away I go to that little place of my
recollection that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. I think I may have found a decent title, but
we shall see if I can write a good poem using it, huh.
Here’s goes hehehe!

Please Lord

Today oh Lord
I pray to You
to hear my prayers
and answer true.
Please Lord God
I ask for peace
within Your Love
of days release.
Now I pray
as time moves on
to you Dear Lord
for pain be gone.
Give to me
some peace to breathe
for within You
I believe.
Please Lord God
give me fresh air
as to answer
moments prayer.

So, there ya go. I hope I didn’t bore ya to death hehehe.
I also hope the poem helped you. The prayer was from me
to God, but I’m sharing with you. My brother in law is still
hanging in there. Please continue to pray for him and my
sister. So, I guess I’ve about exhausted my thoughts for
rambling LOL. Plus my eyesight is also just about gone,
so I reckon I need to be telling you what I tell you every
week and that is I wrote some poems and haiku. Yeppers,
10 more poems with one of them being a Christmas poem.
Also once again I wrote 22 haiku, but with one extra being
I got carried away LOL. So, I hope you enjoy them or at
least a few. It’s time for me to begin my search for that
silly off switch that loves to play hide and seek, but not
before I wish you a most wonderful and God filled week.
Remember, Jesus loves you and we do too. Now to find
that off switch. OK so hiding under Benny’s doggie bed
won’t save ya. I can see the lump hehehehehehehehehe.
Gotha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22+1 hehehehehehehehehe

When Seasons Change

Our journeys forward
found in time
become a dusty
trail to climb.
Things remembered
now so strange
become the pictures
when seasons change.
Often our minutes
seem like hours
while walking onwards
time empowers.
Timeless are echoes
reverberating
as they become us
concentrating
Our journeys forward
rearrange
as each stage
when seasons change.

Within A Time

Sometimes heartbeats
might just cease
leaving moments
without peace.
Within a time
those beating frames
might just be
forgotten names.
Within a time
in history
things might seem
too bad to be,
but those segments
we recall
might just be
a bitter fall.
Every moment
we define,
might just be
within a time.
Things we’ve done
real sad to see
might be lessons
history.

Winter Fades

Signs of winter
fading fast
are now what
the shadows cast.
Bringing forth
some sights to see
from Lord God
and given free.
Winter fades
as springtime grows
giving life
a fragrant rose.
Snowy patches
melt away
leaving room
for a sunny day.
The leaves on trees
are soon to find
day to day
their own design.
Displayed as
a summers day
after Springtime
then in May.

Lengthy Storms

When our days are
filled with grays
we might misconstrue
the days.
They might not be
all that bad,
but our vision
stays so sad.
Lengthy storms might
be in view
living in the
things we do.
Don’t let storm clouds
day to day
become all that
does display.
Look for glimmers
in each frame
that are good things
to attain.
Let those lengthy
storms of time
change a lemon
to a lime.

Christmastimes Haze

With ending of Christmas
so many forget
and then continue
with lives so upset.
The Christmas view
is found in their gaze
as just a segment
of Christmas haze.
Often those people
will just move along
letting the feeling
of Christmas be gone.
Not letting Christmas
to be better seen
running as waters
of God’s given stream.
Don’t be one leaving
your Christmastime views
found in December
as just olden news.
Let Christmas shine on
each day that your found
just like it’s Christmas
each day so abound.
Don’t let the feeling
to just go away.
Turn Christmas haze
to a wonderful day.

Tomorrows Refuge

Wonders are often
as yesterdays luge
ridden as hopeful
tomorrows refuge.
So many people
will ride down a hill
leading to sorrow
for now to fulfill.
In that old sleigh ride
time might befall
tree limbs of torment
of then to recall.
Tomorrows refuge
could be just a game
headed down pathways
of oh so insane.
Don’t let your sleigh ride
to lead you away
from what that God has
for you today.

Assorted Dreams

Dreams filled with hopeful
from prayers of design
then become patterned with
greater in time.
Assorted dreams
that come day and night
can become blessings
or maybe a fright.
For if a dreamer
just seeks only gain
he or she might just
find only pain.
Seek for assorted
dreams running true
filled with the blessings
that are best for you.
Don’t let your dreaming
to be filled with greed.
Dream of the things
that you really need.

The Least of Times

While moving forwards
our shadows will show
places remembered
from where that we go.
Sometimes those shadows
might be best designs,
but at the moment were
the least of times.
Often while thinking
of things done and said
the least of times
will float through our head.
Finding regretful
for what’s just a haze
as the least of times
becomes better days.
Look now at blessings
that God’s given you
and see what least is
better to view.
Sometimes the small things
that come to be
become the largest
for you and me.

While Sitting Alone

In the early hours
of mornings sunrise
I sit alone with
my sleepy eyes.
While every minute
just fades from view
I am wondering
what I’m to do.
Thoughts fill my mind
of scenes I recall
found as a fragrance
of October fall.
I find my thinking
just slipping away
into the wonders
beginning in May.
While sitting alone
I find all my thoughts
as just a fragrance
that I run across.
Scenes I have captured
in my photographs
that are now memories
that surely last.
Pigmented colors
that time has surmised
become my ventures
with eyes opened wide.
While sitting alone
I take now to heart
all of those ventures
then from the start.

The Day’s At End

Evening comes slowly
as the sun fades away
at the days end
of a sunshine display.
Soon all the stars
will twinkle their view
the way that they always
often will do.
The day’s at end
as time ticks along
while all the shadows
of day then are gone.
Leaving but only
glimmers sunshine
as the reflections
of moonlight of time.
The day’s at end
and now I must rest
leaving the moments of
thoughts to digest.
Letting the evening
to come in with stars
that often includes
Venus and Mars.

Haiku
for Apr 6, 2013

Lives without problems
have no lessons to learn from
and remain stupid.

Scenes within springtime
are as echoes of heartbeats
found in a glimmer.

Many a venture
leads to troublesome turnstiles
that repeat often.

Within a mere breath
is a life flowing essence
that shares conclusions.

While many storms grow
they also create beauty
that attract others.

Leaving your safe place
requires some faith in Jesus
that it will work out.

Morning leaves patterns
with shadow like memories
that night did befall.

Least is better
when the most is not lessoned.
Do what you’re able.

Simple memories
come alive within our dreams
as subconscious thoughts.

Living in bubbles
will prevent you from learning
what life is about.

Winter winds whistle
like a piper of cold air
changing directions.

The leaves of springtime
come slowly alive each day
while some flower blooms.

Nobody’s perfect,
yet many think that they are
and prove they’re stupid.

When filled with sorrow
let your heart to find Jesus
and give it to Him.

Now is a moment
that then might never recall
unless you’re ready.

True love’s not shallow,
but many misuse the word
to acquire something.

Tomorrow’s not here
so do your best now today
and all will be well.

While searching for dreams
you might find a few nightmares
that snuck in the door.

Looks are deceiving
and can become bitter sights,
so look much deeper.

As winter subsides
it leaves portions of itself
as cracks in the road.

Sight in a mirror
reflects a persons outside
not seeing within.

Believing in ghost
gives flight to understanding
what many may see.

A blessed moment
can bring alive a heartbeat
that you remember.
