ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I’m a bit late again writing my journal being our
internet server has been giving us troubles most
of the day. As of now it seems to be doing fairly
well LOL. Of course the internet wasn’t the only
reason this is late. I have been feeling very weak
here lately and haven’t been able to keep my eye
opened long enough to do much. I am feeling a bit
better right now, but I’m sure that won’t last long,
so I try to do all that I can amidst my little energy
spurt LOL. The boys are doing great. Benny and
Milo have been playing chase off and on today 🙂
They do love one another hehehe. I wrestle with
them as much as I can LOL. They love to be close
to Judy and I. They both ask permission to be on
the bed with us. If I say no and go to bed, then
that’s it. They go to their beds. Though Benny will
run around the house a few times before he goes
to bed hehehe. He’s young and has more energy
than Milo hehehe and tons more than us LOL 🙂
Judy made a cinnamon swirl cake last night for
us to have for breakfast. It’ came out GREAT.
We had it for breakfast and a late night snack.
We still have plenty for breakfast today when
we get up, which might not be until afternoon,
being we stay up all night. Yep, we’re both
night owls LOL. That in a sense is how that
we came to be LOL. I worked nights and so
I slept during the day which is pretty much how
it is around this place minus the working. Can’t
do that anymore. It sucks when you’re told that
you cannot work anymore due to your health
issues. Although, I guess it’s best being I had
one too many strokes and there was no telling
whether the next one was going to be the one
that took me home. So I guess it’s best that
I’m not working anymore. I would surely be
dead now. God is in control. He needed me
with my writing abilities to share all that I’ve
learned through life. I do that through poetry.
Yes also through haiku LOL! I often wondered
why it was that my thoughts always came out
as poetry. My mind seems to never want to
shut down. Even when I am lying in bed, it
seems poetry is running through my head.
Things that I pray and say to God seem to be
poems coming out so odd. Sorry about that!
LOL I had a poetic moment. We each have
gifts that God has given us, but we might not
be aware of them or even know that we are
doing them every day. The gift of being able
to brighten someone’s day with a smile is one
that many take for granted. The gift of love
and compassion for those that are without
any is a wondrous gift. Many times it is the
love and compassion from someone that gives
another the strength to endure another day.
We might view our problems as the largest,
but there are many out there that have more
to deal with that would make our problems
as just a speck of dust. Let God show you
how you can become a tool that He can use
in your every day life. You will be blessed.
Now, as I hear the cartoon of Yogi bear
coming from our bedroom, I believe it’s time
for me to be taking my little venture 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 like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. I think I found a good title. Now,
let’s see if I have used it before? Nope!
So here goes. Enjoy 🙂

You Will Be Blessed

When times of trouble
come to you
let Lord God
make life anew.
Seek for Him
to find some rest
and then surely
you will be blessed.
When daily struggles
become so great
seek for God
don’t hesitate.
You will be blessed
when you show
His true love
wherever you go.
Don’t let anger
make you stressed.
Find Lord Jesus
you will be blessed.
Let not shadows
yesterdays
become bitter
blacks and grays.
You will be blessed
with loving mind
if you share
with all mankind.
For the bitterness
ones perceive
might become
an endless grieve.

Ok, so I hope that makes some sense to you :).
I never know if what I’m writing is making sense
to anyone but me LOL. I also find struggles of
humanity and it’s an every day battle. It’s when
I stop and have a little talk with God that I find
a little peace. I hear the answers in my mind. He
has a way of getting the message across to me 🙂
We may at times think He is not listening, but it
is us that are not listening. He is always there
awaiting us to commune with Him. LOL often
I will find myself talking to Him in the weirdest
places LOL. I’m sure He doesn’t mind hehehe.
So, it’s 5:30 AM Monday morning and Judy is
still in the bedroom watching cartoons hehehe
which means I need to hurry and wind this up.
I ask once again for prayers for my brother in
law DD and sister Peggy. They are continuing
to try and enjoy life as best that they can 🙂
I love ya DD. Keep the faith. Peggy, hang in
there. God is in control. Now it’s time for me
to tell ya what I tell ya every week and that is
I wrote yet again more poetry and haiku. Yep,
10 more poems, but no Christmas poems this
week LOL. Yes of course, I wrote 22 more
haiku for all of the haiku lovers out there.
I hope a few of one or the other find a place
inside your heart that grows a smile. So, now
I guess I need to begin my search for that
allusive off switch, 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. I see ya poking your head
out from behind that curtain LOL, that
is see through. Peekaboo, I see you hehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehe:)

When Morning Comes

The day begins
when morning comes
bringing sights
as beating drums.
Rhythms beating
time begins
when morning comes
the nighttime ends.
Then as morning
takes its shape
it begins
a minds escape.
Bringing ventures
into view
when morning comes
to me and you.

A Peaceful Day

While clouds of white
float overhead
they seek to fill
a riverbed.
A peaceful day
with skies of blue
brings to mind
a wondrous view.
Some clouds floating
in the sky
speak their minds as
rains reply.
A peaceful day
of which I see
is from Lord God
great and free.
Yet so often
peace will rest
putting problems
to the test.
A day of wind
and turbulence
will bring faith
unto defense.
Then with moments
prayerful mind
a peaceful day
again you’ll find.

Beach of Dreams

Somewhere in time
a beach of dreams
floats inside
like cosmic streams.
Scenes so wondrous
that are found
a beach of dreams
is sight and sound.
You and I walk
hand in hand
this beach of dreams
that is so grand.
Our memories
keep this alive
a beach of dreams
in you and I.
We’re there watching
mornings sun
across the sea
that time’s begun.
The ocean view
of every day
is now a beach
that dreams display.

From Bill Pearce 🙂

With A Loss

As time concurs
its moments course
there is often
some remorse.
Thinking what you
could of done
with a loss of
then someone.
Yet so often
all that’s found
is just letting
guilt aground.
Sometimes moments
we partake
are God’s timing
no mistake.
With a loss
of love of life
many fill
themselves with strife.
Learn that death
is not the end,
but beginning
to ascend.
Don’t let sadness
live in you.
With loss of life
is life anew.

Nobody Knows

When troubles come
you might not find
that there is One
that knows your mind.
In those moments
go to prayer
and then seek
a breath of air.
Many might think
that nobody knows
the troubles seen
and all their woes,
but surely my friend
there is someone
that knows your heart
from sun to sun.
He is Lord Jesus
and He’s there
to give you peace
amidst a prayer.
Yet so often
you might think
your troubles are
just sands to sink,
but there is
some solid ground
when Lord Jesus
you have found.
You might still think
that nobody knows,
but rest assured
God knows your woes.

Summer’s Sun

As spring is gone
and surely done
then there’s found
the summer’s sun.
Written in the
days ahead
is often found
blue, green and red.
Summer’s sun
comes beating down
leaving shadows
on the ground.
Scenes of beauty
far and wide
summer’s sun
can’t be denied.
With the glimmers
of sunrise
summers sun
fills up the skies.
It brings changes
found in place
sometimes sunburns
on my face.
Yet that summer
sun of times
brings alive
some great designs.

The Fan Blades Turn

In the windows
I discern
what I see,
the fan blades turn.
Windows opened
yet no breeze
the fan blades turn
to give at ease.
Blowing in a
breath of air
the fan blades turn
with breath to share.
I sit and listen
to them turning
giving what that
I am yearning.
A simple breeze
as they go round
the fan blades turn
with whirring sound.

Thinking Too Much

Often ones thinking
might just overload
making them one day
to surely explode.
Thinking too much
can make you insane
as you encompass
each time and again.
Take time for Jesus
and let your thoughts rest,
then maybe thinking
will be at your best.
Don’t let the shadows
of yesterdays thoughts
become as all that
timeframes have lost.
Look for the glimmers
of goodness each day
as you think surely
in a peaceful array.
For thinking too much
can make heads explode
sometimes unknowingly
on down the road.

The Telephone Rings

I sit and I hear
as the telephone rings
while its irritates
as how that it sings.
It’s often found as
someone’s wrong number
with someone dialing
while they are in slumber.
Or maybe butt dialing
as they walk around
and not realizing
that they are the sound.
The telephone rings
while I’m often thinking
of what to write
of poems not so sinking.
Yet, I get often
fed up with it all
and hit the mute,
to not hear a call.
Then I will sometimes
forget to unmute
and then miss phone calls
that I sought pursuit.

Wheels In Motion

The gears of life
engage in place
as wheels in motion
face to face.
Time brings factors
into view
as wheels in motion
me and you.
Stages with actors
you and I
wheels in motion
do apply.
The scenes are set
with some colors
wheels in motion
sisters brothers.
We are the ones
to better find
wheels in motion
peace of mind.
Let not differences
be your sight
Be wheels in motion
for what’s right.

Haiku
for Apr 28, 2013

With many thinking
the thoughts might be mistaken
with different views.

A glimpse of sunshine
gives hope for a brand new day
as yesterday’s gone.

Not hearing wrong notes
might conclude that you’re tone deaf
or not listening.

The effort of one
can grow stronger with many
and get out of hand.

The scenes of summer
come alive as rain falls down
to water the Earth.

God gives us chances
to change our ways of living,
but just so many.

Time is an echo
that is often repeating
what was never learned.

Night often brings fear
as what’s hidden in darkness,
but there in the light.

Looking too quickly
can cause you much deception
for your sight was short.

A moment in time
carries a few memories
that are the greatest.

While staring outside
the view that is found within
might not be noticed.

What we thought deserved
might not be so correctly,
for your view’s clouded.

Deserts filled with time
find ways of creating things
that aren’t there at all.

Tomorrow’s dreaming
could be a slight misleading
for what that is true.

Shadows at nighttime
can become so many things
and be just a tree.

When summer winds blow
they create a breeze to feel
found within the shade.

Worries only grow
when time is given a chance
to become our fears.

Beyond a window
lives the things that we perceive
as time passing by.

Snowflakes remembered
are as wintertime’s portrait
found inside our mind.

True love encountered
lives on even after death,
for it will not die.

The spirit of God
can thrive in us one and all
if we’ll let Him in.

Yesterdays threshold
is not a guaranteed path,
for things surely change.
