ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

I hope you have been staying well or as well as possible. The
weather up this way has been still on the cold side and so we’ve
yet to of needed to use our brand new air conditioner hehehehe,
but in June I’m sure it will warm up a little bit. The high for
today is 52 F degrees which it is at this very moment. Benny
and Milo are doing well. Milo was a bit sick yesterday, but he
is OK today. I think he caught him an old fashioned cold, but it
seems to have run its course. He got some good sleep last night
as Judy and I kept and eye on him. Benny is still his same old
cantankerous self LOL. He was even worried about his big bro.
Benny crawled in Bed with Milo and cuddled with him yesterday.
They normally sleep side by side, but in their own beds hehehe.
It’s been raining pretty much off and on for the last few days.
Had flash flood warnings for most of Maine LOL. Oh well, it’s
pretty much a regular thing for up here. We’re never affected
by any of it, being we’re on high ground. Judy is brushing Milo
right now and Benny is waiting his turn LOL. Our neighbors just
fired up their four wheelers. Oh joy, now I’ve gotta listen to
those things running back and forth LOL. They’re gonna get
muddy hehehehe. Milo is back to his old self. He’s wanting
attention. Benny keeps coming in here trying to get Milo to
chase him hehehe and he succeeded 🙂 Milo chased him out
of the room LOL, but Benny will be back again to coax him
into chasing him again. Those two are real characters hehehe.
Benny’s at the door now shaking his tail at Milo trying to get
him to chase him again LOL. That will be going on until they
are ready for their naps. Judy’s headed into the kitchen to
get us each a Cheese Danish for our breakfast, so I might
have to pause for a bit until I finish eating 🙂 being my hands
get really sticky when eating those things hehehehehehehe.
Ok, I’m done. Mmmmm mmm good. Judy makes the best.
I took our plates to the kitchen and Benny was wanting me
to play with him, so I got in the floor and wrestled around
with him for a bit up until Milo strolled in and wanted me to
play with him too hehehe. I then wrestled with them both for
a bit until I got the notion that I had wrestled them till they
were needing to pee, so I let them outside to do their thing.
Judy just now went to let them both in. LOL I could hear
Milo barking at the door saying “I Want In”. Benny likes
to stay outside for a bit, but is usually ready to come back
in after a short while, plus, he hates the rain hehehehehe.
They are funny boys. Benny came running in here with his
electronic collar on and I said go back to momma so she can
take your collar off. He ran back into the living room. Now
Milo is in here wanting me to pet him. Good boy, lie down
in your bed and let daddy finish writing. It’s 2:42 PM and
it’s still 52 F degrees. It’s supposed to get down to around
39 F degrees tonight. It still don’t feel like spring hehehe.
LOL I saw where New Hampshire and Vermont got some
snow yesterday hehehe. Although I reckon it has melted
away by now, being it’s not quite cold enough for it to stay
on the ground. We’ve been known to still have snow in May,
but not this year. I’m glad about that. I love the sight of
snow, but it does get old after a while especially when it is
followed by ice. I have enough fractured body parts and
I don’t need any more. Our front steps tend to ice over
without me knowing it and well, you know the rest hehehe.
My external hard drive is still in Texas being worked on
and I miss all of my pictures and videos. I sure hope they
are able to get it fixed. In the mean time I will continue
taking pictures and using a few to make my stationeries.
I took a few on Benny and Milo yesterday while they were
lying down together in the same doggy bed. Benny knew
his big brother was feeling ill, and so he snuggled up to
him hehehe. I guess the weather affects Milo the same
as it affects me. I’ve been ill in bed most of the week.
Also my allergies have been wearing on me and making
me sneeze my head off while either keeping my nose
running or stopped up at all times LOL. It’s an all year
thing with me. It never finds an ending and nothing will
make it cease. I’ve tried everything. It has been this
way most of my freaking life LOL. Come on Heaven 🙂
I need some relief. So what else I going on around this
place? Hmmm good question! Judy and I might have
to make a run to WalMart soon. She’s almost out of
Pepsi’s and we’re getting low on other things as well.
The boys have pooped themselves out and Milo is now
sleeping in his bed. Benny’s lying in one of his favorite
spots under a chair in the living room. He loves that
spot and on the recliner hehehe. He makes his way in
here when he’s rested up wanting to play some more.
He often sleeps in here with Milo, but he likes to be
alone at times. Milo does too and will often go and lie
down in his doggy bed in our bedroom or lie on the end
of our bed. When they get rested up, they will be ready
to play again. We bought some professional shears so
we can shear them one day when it eases up on the rain
a little LOL. I want to shear them outside if possible,
but we might just throw a sheet on the floor or bed and
shear them inside the same as we did when we trimmed
their hair a month or so ago. This time we’re shearing
them to maybe only an inch of hair or less. Yeppers,
don’t want them to have heat strokes. Their hair will
all grow back by wintertime. When we got them, their
hair had been trimmed. Thank You God for blessing
our home and filling it with joy. We awaken each day to
those happy little faces as we look at one another and
smile knowing that God is at work with His Miracles.
Yes things go wrong day to day, but for the most part,
we are happy and we have each other. I still find times
that I miss my family and friends, but I have had it much
worse in the past which makes me realize that right now
isn’t all that bad. Judy and I enjoy watching all of our TV
programs together as well as playing Farm Town and
our computer games. We also enjoy going out time to
time and taking pictures of the scenery. And, well you
know that we enjoy these boys. They bring us a smile
every time they enter the room 🙂 Yes God has blessed
our home. Have you taken the time to notice the many
blessings that God has given you. You might have let
the problems of life to cloud your vision to where your
blessings are hard to see. Look passed the problems
and see all that God has helped you through or given
you when you were not aware. If you look closely, you
might even see His Fingerprints. Yes, sometimes our
situations can prevent us from seeing the blessings.
Take the time right now to find His many blessings that
you have overlooked. Now, I believe it’s time for me
to begin my little journey back through all that I have
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 to that place of my recollection
that I always like to call RECOLLECT VILLE. OK,
I think I found a good title, but now I’ve gotta try and
put some words to it hehehe. Here goes nothing!

His Fingerprints

When problems occur
God brings us a way
found as His blessings
in our day to day.
Within His fingerprints
are signs of the times
found as His blessings
in many designs.
Sometimes a problem
will turn into good
for then that moment
was misunderstood.
Within His fingerprints
are so many hours
we found as weeds
that turned into flowers.
Often our viewpoints
are just a bit gray
within His fingerprints
found day to day.

Well, there ya go! I hope that made at least a little sense
to ya. LOL it’s still 52 F degrees at 3:48 PM. Benny just
barked right behind me and scared the tar outta me LOL.
I think he heard our neighbors. I wish he would hold off on
barking until he gets out from behind me hehehehehehehe.
He’s in the living room now. OK so now he’s back in here
lying in his doggy bed beside me. He’s our little over active
doorbell LOL. I miss the days that he would not bark LOL.
Ok I am glad that he let’s us know if someone is at the door,
but that’s the only time 🙂 Oh well, he’s our baby boy and
Milo is his good old big brother. They always look out for
each other. They’re now lying side by side in their little
doggy beds right in between Judy and I. To Judy’s right
and to my left hehehe. So, welcome to our little home in
the boonies called The Pearce’s Place. It’s gone down 2
degrees. Now at 4:00 PM it’s 50 F degrees. Nope, if it’s
springtime, it sure is hiding it well LOL. It don’t matter 🙂
We’ll survive. I want you to continue to pray for both
of my brother in laws. DD is hanging in there while him
and my sister Peggy try to enjoy their time together, for
none of us truly knows when our time is up. We could
be hit by a truck or struck by lightning etc, etc, etc.
My brother in law David is doing well. He is home now.
They did a few bypasses on him due to the blood clots.
God is in control. At times you might not be able to
see it, but His Hands are always at work. Have faith
and trust that all will be well as long as we do the best
we can to do His Will. We will most surely falter, but
His Son’s blood was shed for our many mistakes. Now,
I believe it’s time for me to be telling you what I tell
you every week and that is, I wrote some more poems
and haiku. Yeppers, 10 more poems, but no Christmas
poems this week HoHoHo. Also yes I again wrote 22
haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there. I hope you
find a few of either or both that you like. so I guess
it’s about time for me to be searching for that old 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. Ok ya silly little
contraption, hiding underneath my soda can is one
of the dumbest places to hide. I tend to pick it up
to get a drink time to time LOL. I see ya there 🙂
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

The Passing Rains

A simple time
when winds will blow
the passing rains
will come and go.
Those are moments
that I recall
the passing rains
will surely fall.
Gentle breezes
blow on through
the passing rains
of thereunto.
Seasons blessings
find a way
the passing rains
that now display.
A simple time
where summer plays
the passing rains
are coming days.
These are blessings
in disguise
coming down from
northern skies.

The Still of Night

When nighttime comes
it brings some fear
with what’s hidden
that ones hear.
The still of night
is often found
the very same as
days around.
Yet the darkness
many find
creates visions
in their mind.
The still of night
can be so great
found as peaceful
times await.
So if darkness
scares you true
learn to look with
peace in you.
The still of night
can become seen
as a wondrous
moments dream.
Let your prayers to
find a way
to make your nights
as bright as day.
Seeing only
what that’s true
the still of night
gives sleep to you.

When Morning Comes

As clouds of night
move overhead
the signs of morning
fill my head.
Thoughts of sunrise
find a place
inside my mind
as just a taste.
When morning comes
I’ll search to find
the painted scenes
of time to time.
But now it’s nighttime
as I write
while awaiting
end of night.
When morning comes
I might just see
my own shadow
fancy free.
Yet I now just
twiddle my thumbs
seeking for
when morning comes.

Snowflakes Remembered

While winters winds
have lost their trail
I remember when
snowflakes fell.
Wintertime’s pages
turned as a book
giving each day a
seasonal look.
Snowflakes remembered
so timeless to see
I now recall them
as so gracefully.
Then as time’s turning
the snow builds a scene
that many only
see in a dream.
The transfer of snowflakes
as winds blow around
paints many pictures
found on the ground.
Snowflakes remembered
are now just a ghost
waiting to blossom
in wintertime’s most.

A Betting Man

The sooner times
of what we want
a betting man
might find and flaunt.
Yet a betting man
of time
might incur
a bad design.
Sometimes wages
put on things
can make nightmares
out of dreams.
A betting man
that enters through
might just find
a dismal view.
So don’t go betting
time agin
seeking just to
always win.

As People Change

Each day we see
someone will change
to maybe someone
very strange.
As people change
they might display
a different view
from day to day.
It’s our minutes
counted on
that give changes
dusk to dawn.
While ones might just
seem the same
they might hide
as people change.
So if people
that you know
change the places
that they go,
you might witness
pages turned
as people change
to what’s discerned.

The Grace of God

When peace is void
in now and then
the grace of God
can then begin.
Let Him come and
bring to you
a better day
within your view.
The grace of God
can make each day
filled with blessings
wondrous way.
Scenes encountered
nightmares found
the grace of God
gives solid ground.
With each shadow
sadness shows
the grace of God
can heal our woes.

Thinking Clearly

Confused insight
what you see
can create your
misery.
Thinking clearly
before going
might show better
what you’re knowing.
Don’t let hurry
guide you true
or you’ll maybe
end up blue.
Let your patience
grow in stride
as you let Lord
God inside.
Find your thoughts
as rivers flow
thinking clearly
where you go.

Stress of Time

Assorted moments
gathered around
often bring us
not so sound.
As our passed days
come in view
the stress of time
might also too.
With remembered
segments seen
stress of time
might just demean.
Just remember
then and there
cannot repeat
anywhere.
It might seem as
just the same,
but will have
a different name.
Stress of time
can surely grow
if we never
change the show.
Change the many
thoughts in time
to some lessons
in design.
The stress of time
will then be seen
as a moments
blessed scheme.

The Force of Nature

When days collide
with scenes we see
the force of nature
drives it free.
Trees are displayed
far and wide
with the force of
time applied,
Wind then blowing
quick a breeze
makes a dancing
of the trees.
The force of nature
gives a breath
as each seasons
right and left.
Sometimes rainclouds
fill the skies
as the forces
show their size.
The force of nature
comes and goes
with its many
wondrous shows.
Snowflakes fall and
land with care
on through winter
here and there.
Natures format
changes true
with each season
there and to.
The force of nature
shows its mind
when it wishes
time to time.

Haiku
for May 24, 2013

The better moments
evade our recollection
when troubles arise.

Storms filled with raindrops
often disperse over land
that does not need rain.

A forest of thought
fills up a mind full of trees
leaving too much shade.

Winter is a time
that so many recognize
as just ice and snow.

Thoughts can make journeys,
that are found as vacations
walking on a beach.

So many thinkers
do not take a breath from thought
to hear someone else.

Simple little words
can start up an argument
through mere confusion.

Labels on people
are most often misconceived
due to ignorance.

When summertime displays
it exposes many sights
that people enhance.

The weather you hate
will change as time goes forward,
so patiently wait.

A gun in a hand
will react with the finger
and how it is pulled.

An opened window
allows sunshine or raindrops
depicting the time.

Beyond what we see
is the beating heart inside
that we may not know.

Love is a venture
that is often mistaken
for just a moment.

Minutes are counted
as we walk the face of time
with our choices made.

Many will forget
what ones had done physically,
but remember words.

The sight of trouble
is evaluated time
viewed by another.

As today concludes
it brings forth many chances
for another day.

Nobody is flawless
except of course Jesus Christ,
so get over it.

We all have bad days,
but ours might look as the worst
through our perception.

A single storm cloud
can become a tornado
if more are gathered.

Letting anger thrive
for what another has done
gives them full control.
