ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How’ve ya been? It’s been hectic over this way. One problem
after another. We finally got our car fixed, but it cost us $670.
Of course it took the guy a while to get the clutch lines bled so
that our clutch would work properly. My external hard drive on
my PC quit working and it had all of my pictures and videos on it
not to mention all of my software downloads. I’ve sent it to my
good friends Ron and Mandy in Texas at Century Computer and
I’m hoping they can repair it. I think the power supply might of
quit and I’m hoping that is all. If not, I will be in a world of mess.
Oh well, that’s life. My darned allergies have kept me sneezing
continually every day along with my nose running or stopping up
at all times LOL. Nothing works to stop it. It’s been a lifetime
of problems as my allergies drive me mad all year long without
any letup. I bet nobody even noticed that I didn’t write last week.
LOL I mean, who reads my stuff anyways!? I’m sure that you
would not miss me if I were to stop huh! Oh well, I guess I’ll
continue on as I have, being I write most of the time to try to
find myself some peace. The passed week has been not too bad
temperature wise. This morning it was supposed to be in the
20’s, Fahrenheit that is, but I don’t think it got quite that cold
thank God. Right now at 2:20 PM it’s 59 F degrees and tonight
is supposed to get down to 46 F degrees. The rest of the weeks
day temperatures are forecasted to be in the upper 50’s to the
middle 60’s with a couple of days in the upper 60’s. So it still
doesn’t feel much like springtime up here LOL. Nope, Texas
this is not hehehe. I’m thinking that it won’t be up until maybe
next month that it begins showing signs of warming just as it
has done time again in the past. We have been known to still
have snow in May ya know LOL. June is actually the month
when it begins to warm up a little bit and we’re ready for it :).
Yeppers, it would be nice to not have to use these darned
radiator heaters for a while. Although the humidity levels
up here combined with the heat of summer tend to make it
impossible to sleep. I’ve ordered us an 8000 BTU portable
air conditioner to use in our bedroom and in here in the PC
room, so come on summer, we’re ready for ya. My mom
and sister might make it up here this summer and that will be
GREAT. I haven’t seen anybody since 2008 when they came
up. I sure wish some of my friends could make it up, but
I’m beginning to think I haven’t got many friends down there
anymore. The phone never rings other than for WalMart to
call to tell Judy that she has prescriptions ready. I had been
calling my friends most of the time, but that seemed to be a
little one sided, so I stopped. I’ve tried to call a few time to
time, but always get their message recordings or whatever.
Oh well, I’ll survive. I have a couple of friends up here that
I see once in a while. Brian and me are getting ready to go
fishing this year. He also ever so often brings his RC planes
over to fly in our field. So I’m stoked about all of that hehehe.
I have many friends that I have never met in person and it
would be great to meet them face to face. I’m hoping that
one day that will happen. It’s 3 PM and it’s still 59 F degrees.
Judy’s in the kitchen making pancakes or something for us
eat 🙂 Neither of us has eaten anything yet today. By the
amount of food that I eat, you’d think I would not weigh as
much as I do LOL. My weight is due to one of the doctors
I had overdosing me on prednisone when I came down with
Ulcerative Colitis that in time turned into Crohn’s disease
which almost killed me. My intestines we’re bleeding and
perforating. This was back in 1994-95. So now I’m weighing
in at about 230 lbs. Oh well, hehehe more to love 🙂 Judy
doesn’t seem to mind 🙂 I can smell the pancakes cooking.
Mmmmmm I’m hungry. I guess this means it’s my turn to
cook tonight LOL. We take turns with everything. Even
with the feeding and washing of Benny and Milo hehehehe.
The Pearce’s Place is still alive with commotion as each day
brings a new journey. The boys love to watch all of the kids
at play outside, but Milo still prefers to be inside. He’s
strictly an inside dog. Benny on the other hand prefers to
stay outside and watch all of the commotions of the day,
but when it has ended, he’s ready to come back in hehehe.
They will often play a game of chase throughout the house.
Right now the boys are in there watching Judy cook which
I might add she has finished and bringing them in here for
us to eat, so food time. Be back! I’m back, but for only
a brief hehehe. Hey, food runs right through me nowadays
being I’m missing my colon and a 3rd of my small intestines.
They were unable to do a successful colostomy on me so
they hooked what I have left of my intestines to my um 🙂
derriere. It’s 61 F degrees now at 3:43 PM. It’s supposed
to get up to 63 today and it’s almost there hehehehehehe.
Milo has been barking steadily saying he wants to come
back inside, but it’s such a pretty day today. I can’t see
how they would be better off inside. Benny is enjoying it
as always. Although in time he’ll be on the porch ready
to come back in. They are our boys. God has most surely
blessed our home. We have our fair share of problems,
but God pulls us through. There has been many times
that we saw no light at the end of the tunnel, but God
opened a door through prayer. Judy has written another
book. This time it’s a children’s book titled Hello My
Name is Benny. It should be out on the market sometime
in the next month. She is a great little writer. We can’t
wait to see what the book looks like 🙂 I might one day
in the future compile my poetry and do a book, but it’s
not something I’m aching to do at this moment, being
it will mean a ton of editing and searching to find the
right poems to put in each chapter. Remember, I have
well over 7000 poems. Actually closer to 8000. In any
sense, maybe one day if I get motivated enough hehehe.
God led me to write these journals and I feel that if He’s
leading me to publish some books, then it will happen.
God is always looking out for Judy and I, for there are
many times that we can see His Hands at work. So often
when we are at our wits end, God intervenes with His
answers. If you’re at your wits end and feel that you are
suffocating from problems, take it to Him in prayer.
Don’t let your pride to keep in a situation. There’s no
weakness in asking for help, but do your part in life,
for God will not do what we are able to do for ourselves.
Now I believe it’s time for me to be doing that little
searching thing hehehe. So it’s away I go back through
all that I’ve written here to see if I can find a good word
or phrase that will work for the title for today’s brand
new poem. Back to that place of my recollection that
I always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I
may have found a good title, but we shall see huh LOL.
Here goes nothing, which it might just be hehehehehe.

His Hands At Work

The storms of life
might roll on through
displaying troubles
for me and you.
Yet those storm clouds
that display
will move on
and fade away.
Often troubles
seen at glance
leave us staring
in a trance.
It’s the storms that
teach us ways
for our futures
distant days.
So when you feel
you’re in the dirt
remember that
His hands at work.
God give answers
we might view
what that we don’t
want to do.
But His hands
at work in time
can make good
from nows design.

Ok, so there ya go. I hope you enjoyed my rambling and
maybe even the poem. I have a prayer request for Judy’s
sister Barbara’s husband, (another brother in law). He is
in the hospital with blood clots. He almost had to have his
foot amputated due to gangrene, but they saved it and have
got him on the way to recovery. He had many blood clots
that he was not aware of. David, I’m praying for you my
friend. My other brother in law DD is doing fairly well as
him and my sister Peggy enjoy their time together. I wish
that DD could come up with mom and Peggy. It would be
great to see him. Love ya DD. Hang in there. Now it’s
time for me to tell you what I tell you most every week
except of course for last week LOL and that is, I wrote
some more poems and haiku. I wrote them all Tuesday
the 14th. Yeppers, I once again wrote 10 more poems
with 2 of them being Christmas poems. Also I wrote 22
more haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there. I hope
you find a few of either that you like. Now, it’s about
time for me to be searching for that silly off switch that
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. Now to find that confounded
off switch. There ya are you silly thing! Get over here
and don’t make me have to reach down in the floor to
get ya. Hiding under the dog bed will never work hehehe.
I can always see a lump LOL. Git up here right now!
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

When Troubles Come

As days go by
a sight might seem
to be a bit of
nightmares dream.
When troubles come
in certain times
they might seem
the worst designs.
Yet when thinking
back real clear
you might see
worse yesteryear
Things we’ve been through
times before
give us lessons
evermore.
When troubles come
with each new day
we might learn
a better way.

The Sight of Spring

The winter winds
are ceasing blowing
yet they’re still with
cold bestowing.
The sight of spring
is yet to come
as remembered
Texas sun.
In new England
Northern Maine
the sight of spring
just seems insane.
With the night air
chilling through
the sight of spring
seems not so true.
Maybe soon
the winds will cease
and then give
a little peace.
The sight of spring then
might display
the beginning of
a summers day.

As I Remember

So many memories
that I remember
often burn bright as
that of December.
As I remember
those Christmassy nights
I find I’m drifting
with colorful lights.
Twinkling with visions
found there and to
as I remember
the way that I do.
Seasonal singing
songs full of joy
as I remember
I was just a boy.
Those cheerful cartoons
that still do exist
as I remember
were high on my list.
That Christmas tree
with a train running under
filled up my dreams
with Christmas of wonder.
Watching it running
here there and about
as I remember
I’d joyfully shout.
Merry Christmas dear sister
and mother and dad
as I remember
it’s the best that I had.

With Many Thoughts

While time might tick on
with glimmers to find
with many thoughts
might weigh on your mind.
Not seeking action,
but just seeking words
with many thoughts
is just feathers of birds.
So don’t let your thinking
to be all you do.
Use the good thinking
to motivate you.
Look passed the moments
of then to and fro
and seek the best way
that you are to go.
With many thoughts
in a pattern of time
you can make better
your daily design.

The Ones In Love

Scenes in a story
that many will read
find two together
as God’s planted seed.
The ones in love
with deep true passion
might seem as
a bit old fashioned.
Rhythmic heartbeats
beat as one
when they’re found
within God’s Son.
The ones in love
find time to share
as they’re filled with
love and care.
Now has found
the ones in love
you and I
from God above.

Summer Comes Slowly

I watch and I wait
most every day
for sights of springtime
found in May.
Yet while watching
I find none
with each days
new rising sun.
Summer comes slowly
for it to begin
hoping for warmer
so we can go swim.
Often the weather
looks like it will be
a little bit warmer
for summer to see,
but it gets colder
for then once agin
I am awakened
with cold winters wind.

A New Day Comes

A bright new day
is found to breathe
when in God
you do believe.
When your worries
fill your vision
a new day comes
with your decision.
Letting God fill
you with joy
that was once
just to destroy.
Let Him help you
find some peace
as you learn to
then release.
A new day comes
when then is found
with Lord God
on solid ground.

When Winds Will Blow

The seasonal showers
of springtime’s array
display the blessings
that minutes portray.
Raindrops are falling
as springtime’s prelude
bringing us scenes of
the times to conclude.
June follows springtime
with summer close by
when winds will blow
the clouds in the sky.
Teams of wild birds are
then found flying home
together in flocks found
each not so alone.
The seasonal changes
are found high and low
in all the pages found
when winds will blow.

The Wings of Love

With many in flight
so many won’t see
the wings of flight
of you and me.
The soaring blessings
in the sky
the wings of love
will fly so high.
With mere patterns
filled so true
the wings of love
are me and you.
We fly the oceans
waves in sight
on through day
and into night.
The wings of love
I write about
are you and I
without a doubt.
We’re companions
which will fly
the wings of love
with Adonai.

The Christmas Train

This little train
of Christmastime
is found on track
of number 9.
Chugging down
that railroad track
here and there
and then on back.
The Christmas train
is found with snow
upon the tracks
just going slow.
It chugs and chugs
its way on through
to Christmas town
that’s now in view.
The town’s a speck
for eyes to see
with visions found
so Christmassy.
It’s awaiting
the Christmas train
as ones look through
a window pane.
Some watch and wait
in deepest snow
to see ones dressed
as HoHoHo.
Santa’s helpers
all aboard
the Christmas train
in one accord.
They toss presents
low and high
as the Christmas train
chugs by.
Then they hear
so clearly sung
the blessings are
from God’s Own Son.
Merry Christmas
to you one and all
now it’s time
for this train to haul.
Returning home
on this track of 9
to be with loved ones
Christmastime.

Haiku
for May 14, 2013

With wisdom that’s gained
there’s also stupidity
found that was not learned.

A flower of spring
finds a way of which to bloom
surviving winter.

Many times of trouble
come as waves that crash our shore
leaving their imprints.

Beyond what we see
is what’s often mistaken
as reality.

Too many people
seek only personal gain
not caring who’s harmed.

A withered doorknob
might need a little oiling
or it will seize up.

Without a lesson
you might find many mistakes
with embarrassment.

Shadows of ourselves
are partaken by others
maybe not clearly.

Without wintertime
we would not appreciate spring,
summertime or fall.

Lines found on a face
depict the lifestyle of ones
as happy or sad.

Changing direction
is the needed correction
to often make good.

When your heart is low
let it find a peaceful thought
in a little prayer.

The ages that we’ve seen
can often be repeated
as time goes around.

A youthful insight
can often show better ways
we never thought of.

Time is a moment
that cannot be repeated
the way we want to.

Windows that are closed
prevent the scent of springtime
from entering in.

Truth is a factor
that must be part of your life
for true love to thrive.

A temper destroys,
but a small bit of patience
can repair damage.

Another’s insight
might look as though they are smart,
but they might be dumb.

A morning shower
brings alive many flowers
as they start to bloom.

A tree stood alone
might be perceived as lonely,
but it might not be.

While a cloud floats by
it changes into some shapes
that we recognize.
