From Time To Time

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

Did ya miss me last week? I wasn’t feeling well and wasn’t
able to sit at the PC for long periods of time due to my side
hurting. I think I pulled a muscle while using that darned
boot that the doctor gave me at the emergency room for my
Achilles Tendinitis. The boot doesn’t sit flat and allows my
body to rock which caused me to twist my side while trying
to get up our front steps LOL. In any sense, my ankle is
much better now and I bought a back brace and wore it for
a few days and it seemed to stop my side from hurting. It
was making it so I couldn’t even lay down to sleep it hurt
so much. So now I’m back to my regular on going ailments
to which I’ve grown so accustomed to having hehehe. Now,
how have you been? We’ve been hanging in there as the
weather seems to be getting colder every day. We had a
freeze the other day at 30 F degrees and it looks like we
shall get a few more being tonight’s low is supposed to be
34 F degrees LOL. Right now at 2 PM it’s 55 F degrees.
It’s supposed to be a high of 59 degrees. It’s raining right
now and supposed to rain off and on all throughout the week.
Sometimes it feels as though we live in a rain forest LOL.
Of course minus the forest hehehe, but, we do have quite
a few trees ya know :). We don’t need fans much anymore
other than to maybe circulate the air in the house. Benny
and Milo are doing well. I was up and about for a bit this
morning due to my shoulder aching and the boys joined me
in here in the PC room. After I took some aspirin and all
I went back to bed and the boys wanted to join me and so
I said come on up. Milo hopped right up, but Benny just
waited for me to pick him up and plop him down between
Judy and I. They both then went fast asleep hehehe with
Milo snoring ever so often right along with his mom zzzz.
I got up a bit later and took a nice hot shower. That made
me feel a lot better and so I stayed up. Judy had gotten
up while I was in the shower and so here I am writing to
you :). Judy was fixing to come and give me a hug before
she went into the kitchen to make us some pancakes and
Milo got right between us in his way of saying him first :).
So I gave him a hug and then I gave Judy a hug and kiss.
Judy said she was in the mood for pancakes. Sounds good
to me :). I hope I can get this finished before she get the
pancakes cooked LOL. If I can’t I will have to take a bit
of a pause. You’ll have to bear with me, my eyesight is
on one of its bad days and I can hardly see the monitor
and anything I’ve typed. My potassium must be really
low. Ok, so lower than normal for me LOL. It always
stays at around 40 percent on a good day. According to
the doctors I shouldn’t be alive with the levels that it
drops to often. Yet, here I am, still giving Judy and the
boys a run for their money hehehe. Oh look, the sun is
peeking out from the clouds for a moment and it’s 57 F
degrees now :). Oooh a warming! Soon winter will be
upon us and we will not see another day like today until
next year LOL. Yeppers, when dear old winter gets set
into motion we won’t see temperatures over 30 F degrees.
It’ll become a white sheet of snow! I love to see the first
snow and love to play in it, but it does get old after say
the 4th or 5th month LOL. Oh well, everyplace has its
upsides and downsides. We have a few neighbors that
come up from Florida for summer and go back home for
winter. Once again I ask, how on Earth did Florida get
to be known as the sunshine state? It gets more rain
and hurricanes than anybody LOL. It should be called
the hurricane state. I’d never move there. There are
many other states I’d never move to. I hate tornadoes
and so I’d never move to Oklahoma or thereabouts and
I hate earthquakes and fires so I would never move to
California. Yes we get fires elsewhere, but not quite as
much. There are even a few earthquakes in other states,
not quite as many as California. Of course I’m speaking
of the USA and not including Hawaii hehehe. It seems
that Judy finished making pancakes before I finished,
so I must stop here and eat yummy pancakes Mmmmmm.
OK, so she was just bringing in the syrup hehehehehehe.
I have time to write a bit more! The cartoons are on in
the bedroom and Milo is plopped down on the end of the
bed watching them LOL. Our boys love cartoons. He’s
watching Johnny Test :). God has blessed us with some
wonderful boys/dogs. They are much more than dogs to
Judy and I. They are family! Well Judy made it in with
the pancakes and I stopped and ate. I can see a little
better now. I went to take a few pictures outside our
front door and Benny wanted to go out. I took a picture
and my camera said “change batteries” and so I had to
go back in and get some charged batteries. Benny was
still outside trying to find a good place to go potty LOL.
He is so picky about where he goes potty hehehe. Silly
boy! Well when I came back with the camera, Judy
was at the door watching Milo and Benny. Milo had to
go potty also. So I went and sat on the porch and took
a few pictures of them not in potty state LOL. Our dear
neighbors are mowing again. They just fired up their
mowers. One thing for sure, they won’t be mowing when
winter gets here LOL. Not unless they have converted
them into snow blowers hehehe, which I ‘m pretty sure
they haven’t :). So life continues on around the Pearce’s
Place. We are very thankful for all that God has given
us. He watches over us always. I’m also sure that many
angels are watching over us. I can feel them from time
to time. If you’re having struggles, then take a step
back out of yourself and look and see what others are
dealing with, but still smiling. You might find that your
problems are not so unique and that there is still a way
to smile and enjoy life. Let God help you to see the
blessings that might be right in front of you. Now with
that said, I guess it’s time for me to begin my little
journey 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 to that place of my recollection that I always like to
call RECOLLECT VILLE. I think I may have found
a good title, but first I’ve gotta check to make sure
I haven’t already used it. LOL surprise, I haven’t
used it YET. So, here goes nothing. I hope I can put
together some words that make sense to ya :).

From Time To Time

As seasons change
and days are found cold
the winters remembrance
is same from the old.
Then from time to time
those snowflakes that fall
come with their beautiful
scenes over all.
Blessings so fluffy
that fall from the sky
are from time to time
God’s Own reply.
Displaying beauty
that remind us so true
how Jesus died
for me and for you.
The white snow as pages
that cover our sin
are from time to time
found deep within.
Learn how that Jesus
gave us a place
found then in Heaven
all from His Grace.
Then from time to time
take note and see
all of the blessings
that He gave for free.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling and also maybe even the
poem. Yeppers, it’s been an eventful week around here.
Judy went and spent some quality girl time with her sisters
and her mother Friday. The boys and I stayed home and
played. Of course we ended up watching TV. They soon
fell asleep in here with me. They’re good boys. They were
sleeping so sound, they didn’t hear when Judy came home.
She hollered I’m home and they went ecstatic LOL. They
missed mom :). Oh yea, here’s some news, my mom has
finally joined Facebook and has begun adding the family.
Now she can chat with Judy’s sisters as well as us. Also
she can take a look at all of our pictures that she might not
of seen. I send her many off and on, but not all of them,
so I’m sure she will find many that she has never seen :).
I love you mom and I miss you :). Well there’s not much
else to report from up here, so I guess I need to be telling
you what I tell you every week of course aside from last
week LOL and that is, I wrote some more poems and
haiku. Yeppers, 10 more poems, but I wrote an extra
one Tuesday (Sept 3) and shared it on Facebook and so
I will share it as well. So that ups the count to 11 poems
with two of the poems being Christmas poems HoHoHo.
I also once again wrote 22 haiku for all of my haiku lovers
out there. Nope no extras LOL! I hope you find a few
of either that you like. Now it’s time for me to begin my
search 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. Ok, now where’s that ornery
off switch hiding this week. It’s a had over a week to
find a decent hiding place LOL. OH for Heaven’s sake,
couldn’t ya find a better place to hide other than under
my keyboard. Remember, you make it wobble hehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Take Some Time

With points of time
from here to there
you might find
sometimes unfair.
Things you’ve seen
as moments more
that a dream
has not in store.
Nightmares thrust
into your view
as some dust
from thereunto .
Let those moments
fade away
through atonements
day to day.
Leave those bitter
times you saw
as atwitter
filled with awe.
God will help you
then and there
if you’ll do
a little prayer.
Take some time
for Him On High
yours and mine
our Adonai.

Faded Memories

So long ago
those days in time
now are faded
from my mind.
I often stare
into the night
to find the faded
black and white.
Faded memories
I recall
here and there
from spring to fall.
So long ago
those times I found
were just ticking
around and round.
Yet now today
as faded views
I can surely
see the news.
Things I saw
as winter came
giving blessings
to attain.
Christmas scenes
of long ago
were with scenes
artificial snow.
Those Christmas lights
red, blue and green
were the greatest
ever seen.
Faded memories
now are found
growing stronger
sight and sound.
All of the songs
that played each day
now are as
our Christmas way.
Every moment
my eye sees
remembers faded
memories.

Rains of Summer

While summers heat
is found so warm
the rains of summer
give their charm.
The waters pouring
down to Earth
giving essence
of their worth.
Rains of summer
find a river
to fall down
and then deliver.
Making great
the waters wide
with their liquid
then applied.
Rains of summer
wet a face
with their moments
times embrace.
The simple sign
of rains of summer
often comes
with sounds of thunder.
As the lightning
lights the sky
the rains of summer
then reply.

Golden Dreams

As we walk forwards
our lives leave a trail
sometimes with minutes
as a golden detail.
Those golden dreams
that we each remember
often are found as
times burning ember.
While looking at those
times we recall
we might forget what
did then befall.
It’s how we see then
while looking back
finding that times were
then not so black.
Remembering friendships
times rushing streams
found as the making of
our golden dreams.

Christmas Winds

So often blessings
blow in as a smile
while many look on
and miss all the while.
The Christmas winds blow
as jingles at night
making some sleigh bells
to surely delight.
Christmas lights swaying
within the nights breeze
hung and strung nicely
in many trees.
Houses all decked out
then to and fro
as Christmas winds give
their seasonal blow.
Blowing in snowflakes
as white as can be
the Christmas winds show
what my eyes can see.
All of the blessings
that blow all around
I find each Christmas
right there on the ground.

Maybe God Willing

If time concurs
what I’m to do
maybe God willing
it will come true.
Things will happen
as time moves on
that will leave me
another dawn.
Maybe God willing
things will be seen
not as a nightmare,
but as a dream.
Yet if I hurry
choosing my path
I might be making
my own aftermath.
Maybe God willing
it will be OK
if I will take time
to kneel down and pray.
Surely if I will
cease my fulfilling
I will find goodness
maybe God willing.
But yet in God’s time
and not in mine
I will find blessings
of His design.

A Rainy Day

Summers end
is close at hand
a rainy day
I shall withstand.
Scenes of summers
black and white
now are rainy
day and night.
The flowers bloom
to soon be gone
as the seasons
then moves on.
A rainy day
that now beholds
gives me sight
as time unfolds.
The days are found
as summers end
soon to be as
autumns friend.
A rainy day
displays its view
here and there
and thereunto.

Reunion of Clouds

With winds up high
the clouds float by
from here to there
with their own flair.
A reunion of clouds
as fluffy shrouds
hung up above
with shapes of a dove.
They make a sight
each day and night
showing communion
of their reunion.
They join together
to display the weather
while they float by
as clouds in the sky.
A simple display
of theirs day to day
is found to see
by you and me.

A Hurried Thought

Hurrying thinking
what you’re to do
can often bring
some troubles to you.
A hurried thought
of which you found
might just bring
pure Hell around.
Find some peace
in what you think
to not make time
a ship to sink.
Think it over
truly so
before you choose
where you’re to go.
For time can find
a troubled lot
within the mind
a hurried thought.

I Might Be Wrong

Now as I’m writing
the thoughts that I think
sometimes as printed
on paper with ink,
I might be wrong
or I might be right
so check for your self
in the words now in sight.
I’m only sharing
the things that I’ve learned
that have helped greatly
for times I’ve discerned.
Yet, I might be wrong
still truly my friend
so don’t let my words
to be as your end.
Open the bible
and read for yourself
words that are written
from Lord God Himself.
Also read lessons
that God helped to see
and find the blessings
that Jesus gave free.

In Shadows Wake

As light is gathered
with moments we see
in shadows wake
are found you and me.
Then also echoes
of timeless that’s found
in shadows wake
might be sight and sound.
Even the displays
of here thereabout
in shadows wake
might be in and out.
Maybe on outside
or found then within
in shadows wake
can be her or him.
Moments remembered
or just then displayed
in shadows wake
are lives lemonade.
Found as a footstep
or maybe a ghost
in shadows wake
displays all the most.
Within the minutes
and hours we make
are many glimmers then
in shadows wake.

Haiku
for Sept 2, 2013

With just but a thought
you can change your emotions
and then your actions.

Time is just numbers
counted as lives move forwards
with our memories.

Harnessing today
needs a grasp of the moments
that fly by your eyes.

Timid perceptions
can become many hindrances
based on what you fear.

A journal written
brings words from deep down inside
that might embarrass.

A fly on the wall
perceives all real quietly,
while not understood.

Believing in love
needs to first understand it
to see its full sight.

Windows of summer
often look like a mere haze
as it fades from view.

Hope within passion
comes alive when it is true
and God is amidst.

Pitter patter sounds
make their rainy announcements
as clouds then unleash.

The Springtime flowers
live on through summertime’s scenes
to fall prey to fall.

Things are just silly
when involving what you want
that you do not need.

A mornings display
has one chance to impress you
and then it is gone.

The sounds of thunder
echo across the valley
with rumbling tides.

Finding a mirror
and then truly looking in
can show who you are.

With many heartaches
comes the lessons to be learned
as what not to do.

Loneliness gathers
as a fly on fly paper
while ones go around.

Within a heartbeat
is a moment that lives on
as a memory.

Love is a window
that many forget to clean
to see it clearly.

Looks are deceivers
that many hide with makeup
not showing the truth.

Tomorrows doorway
might have trash in front of it
that’s needing cleaning.

Beyond the moonlight
holds imaginations path
found within a dream.
