ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends
and
Happy New Year

I hope you weathered the new years entrance without too much
confusion LOL!! Yes, we survived. Judy and I waited for the
clock to strike 12 and we went to our Farmville to watch the ball
fall, which I might add was very disgruntling being mine never
fell until about 2 PM New Years day LOL. Talk about a bit of a
long drawn out new years hehehehe. Anyways, we now are in
the midst of the year 2010 and ya wanna know how hard it is for
me to begin dating my poems 2010 instead of 2009 LOL. I have
already had to re date some of my poems LOL. I read them back
to Judy and noticed the date hehehe. Well, I guess I should have
the year 2010 down pact by maybe May hehehehe. It snowed all
night as well as a blizzard hit hard and we are snowed in. At the
moment our landlord is out there attempting to plow through the
stuff so we as well as others can get their cars out LOL, HoHoHo.
The new year is now upon us with brand new minutes to be given
new moments in life. Did you make any resolutions? Hehehehehe
I only made one. I’m gonna try as hard as I can to not repeat the
year 2009 or 2008 hehe. They were some rough years. Judy is
sick this morning. She came home feeling sick yesterday and she
woke up this morning feeling worse, so I told her not to worry,
to just call in, being we are snowed in anyways hehehe. Go back
to bed hon. I figured the restaurant wouldn’t be too busy today
after that blizzard we had last night hehe. Everyone would be
too busy trying to dig themselves out :). I’m sure I will have to get
out there and start digging as soon as Calvin finishes plowing up
ahead of our car, but that will have to wait hehehe. because I’ve
gotta finish this article and get it mailed out to you :). Judy is in
the bed room watching Press Your Luck (Whammy) hehehehe.
She came in here I could tell she was still feeling puny so I sent
her back to bed. I told her as soon as I finished writing this, I
would fix her and I some eggs sausage and toast and bring it to
her in bed and we could watch TV together for a bit before I
head outside to begin my digging the car out :). Fun fun fun!!!
I went walking down the driveway last night just to see how deep
the snow had gotten and the blizzard almost beat my eyes to
death LOL. Thank goodness for my heavy beard, or my face
would look like it was a target for a shooting gallery hehehehe.
I had to keep opening our screen door and pushing the snow
to one side so to keep us from getting snowed in and having to
start waiting for someone to dig us out of the house LOL. Yet,
it’s not too bad. Ok so I reckon you’ve heard enough on that
topic, so it’s onto yet another hehe. I hope you enjoyed my
last journal LOL. I was still sort of under the weather if you
hadn’t noticed through all of the typo’s hehehe. I went and
edited out all of the typo’s in the poems yesterday :). I guess
ya saw my goofs huh. Oh well, I’m human, though many will
argue that point with you HoHoHo. Judy and I are planning
on just sort of vegging out today of course I won’t get to veg
until I get our car dug out :(. That’s life I reckon. I can see
by my PC weather program that south of us got hit harder
with the snow. Not sure about the blizzard, but it does look
like south of us got a bit more snow. Good luck digging :)!
God seems to always keep us under His Hand as troubles
arise. It seems we have always been blessed with what we
need when we are needing. Many times though we the same
as you will get our wanna and needs mixed up and begin our
worry. God expects us to do our part though. He will not do
for us what we can do for ourselves. Don’t just sit there in
other words LOL. Get up and try your best and when you’ve
done your best, let God do the rest! Now it’s time for me
to begin my little venture back through all I’ve written here
and see if I can find a good word or phrase that will work
for the title for today’s brand new poem. So it’s away I go
to that place of recollection that I like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. I believe I found a could title. Now let’s see if I
can put it to good use hehehe. Here goes nothing something
whatever LOL!!!

Get Up And Try

Do not just sit there
as the new year arrives.
Do your very best now
to help others lives.
Also in the new year
don’t just relive
times of the memories
you can’t forgive.
Let today blossom
as new chances grow
and let these minutes
to end all the woe.
Do not just sit there
as time goes on by.
Have faith in Jesus
and get up and try.
Let this new year now
to be better seen
than all the moments
of times in-between.

I hope you enjoyed all my rambling hehehe and if not maybe the
poem LOL. In any case, I hope something I said made a little
sense to ya. Hehehe I’ve got the gift of gab 🙂 and so I ramble!!!
I guess I need to be finding ye old off switch so I can end this and
get in there and check on Judy, but before I do that I need to tell
ya what I tell ya every week and that is, I wrote another bunch
of poems and haikus 10 & 22 and nope no YoVille haiku. I might
do a few though this week, who knows LOL, not me, but, in the
mix of all the poems is one wintry style poem and yes of course 🙂

enjoy a few of them. Well, with that said, I guess it’s time to be
saying goodbye until next week. Remember, Jesus loves you and
we do too. Now where’s that off switch hiding at this time?????

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

Now on with the poems
10 and 22 🙂 hehehe

Now is Hopeful

Now’s a glance
from here to there
from the times
so unaware.
Now’s a portion
painted fine
of a moments
minutes time.
We’re each painting
what we see
with each step
of one two three.
Now’s a piece
of lose and gain
from some places
choo choo train.
Trains all loaded
so to say
with what all
we do each day.
Now is hopeful
if we’ll try
to do our best
until we die.

Until My Time

In the night air
while out walking
I found minutes
I was talking.
Word by word
I spoke sincere
wishing that
someone could hear.
Friends of distance
call my name
in the night air
time again.
Lonely moments
fill the view
with the people
I once knew.
Now the distance
white as snow
leads me places
that I go.
All my footsteps
here and there
are with many
moments prayer.
I know Jesus
hears my plea
and one day
my friends I’ll see.
Yet now minutes
twist and turn
with so much
I can’t discern.
But I’ll continue
every day
all my hopeful
as I pray.
Time will surely
come in sight
that of which
I will delight.
Heavens waiting
for my time
as I pray for
that divine.
That great moments
time and space
that which leads me
To His Face.
Yet now waiting
I must do
until my time
on Earth is through.

Under The Frame

People judge people
so often I find
without them even
knowing their mind.
Often the outer
is all that ones see
and they pass judgment
on both you and me.
We’re often standing
at times weary door
and ones have judged us
sometime long before.
Judging a person
by their outer shell
might leave you standing
at times bitter well.
Look for the person
that’s under the frame
and then a blessing
might just be your gain.

Try To Let it Go

Let every moment
be found with a prayer
that was a moment
that lead here to there.
Let every heartbeat
be found in a way
such as the blessings
of your everyday.
Don’t let your heartbeat
to be without peace.
Learn from the moments,
times to release.
Let every minute
and second you find
be with the love
for all of man kind.
Let not the bitterness
live within you.
Try to let it go
and start as anew.

Living With Me

Winter snows billow
as echoes delight
as I walk onwards
on into the night.
Crunching beneath me
the snow in way
speaks of the riddles
of day after day.
Winter winds blowing
are heard so sincere
as I find often
that’s all that I hear.
Words in a blizzard
somehow are now heard
as all the snow flakes
of word after word.
Winter snows billow
in mounds up ahead
with all the words
that they’ve often said.
The cold wind’s blowing
on this winters night
as I remember
each wonderful sight.
Moments of shadows
from white fallen snow
now are but only
the things that I know.
Long winters moments
now come unto be
here in New England
and living with me.

Christmastime Cheer

Christmas has passed
and left in its wake
times that so many
have lost by mistake.
There’s oh so many
that think Christmastime
is but a moment
for them just to dine.
So often people
will not get a clue
of that of Jesus
and all that is true.
Christmas has passed
and left many found
standing awaiting
for next time around.
The Christmas spirit
should live every day
as you go always
your every which way.
Christmas was given
for us all the while
surely to one day
in Him reconcile.
We have a blessing
from God’s Only Son
that can forgive us
for all that we’ve done.
So now remember
that Christmastime Cheer
should now forever
live all through the year.

Time For Beginnings

A new year has come
and left us to think
what that the past days
linked unto link.
Things we’ve accomplished
and things we’ve failed,
things that we’ve surely
found so compelled.
A new year is here
and now it is done
for new beginnings
up under the sun.
Today is a threshold
leading a mile
giving us chances
to frown or to smile.
Time is a journey
found from the past
that is so often
out of contrast.
A new year’s blossomed
leaving to bloom
time for beginnings
to enter the room.

Magical Rhythms

Jumbles of dewdrops
are what are seen
as the confusion
of white snow from green.
I’ve searched within
as time moves ahead
while every minute
is done and is said.
Jumbles of flavors
from scented to white
fill up the portholes
that I now delight.
Sorted up scenery
seems to be found
with all the potions
of magic abound.
Magical rhythms
beat as a drum
all the blessings
up under the sun.
White snow is glistening
so very true
jumbles of puzzles
a wonderful hue.

So Many Hard Times

Long and awaited
our time may be found
left in the shadows
of time going round.
We may see moments
repeated in time
that are the minutes
we wish to resign.
Yet oh so often
the things that repeat
have many blessings
that we need to meet.
Often a portion
of time we discern
is but an echo
of lessons to learn.
Long times forgotten
may come unto be
one day most surely
with much more to see.
So use the moments
to learn better yet
what that you maybe
had chose to forget.
So many hard times
that we have gone through
are just the lessons
to guide me and you.
Don’t let the lessons
to just fall aside,
because you might find then
again on that ride.

Have Faith In Jesus

Look to your heart now
and find in a beat
moments of blessings
with Jesus to meet.
Let all your anger
to fall now away
as you let Jesus
to guide you today.
Look deep inside now
and see what you find.
Can you feel Jesus
with time after time?
Sometimes our troubles
will feel as a weight
and all the burdens
just seeming too great.
Look to your heart now
and speak very clear
prayers to Lord Jesus
that He’ll surely hear.
There is no problem
that’s too great for Him,
so have faith in Jesus
when out on a limb.

Haiku
for Jan 2, 2010

Looking up skyward
doesn’t promise you sunshine.
You may feel the rain.

Life is a journey
which leads us from here to there
sometimes in anger.

Pieces of people
are moments that coincide
as each day goes by.

One sat unaware
leaves the problems much seeding.
Prepare for unknown.

The length of passion
is footsteps to another
to make love be born.

Winter’s found favor
in the seeds of each snowflake
that lays on the ground.

Time marching onwards
leaves the passages well written,
yet many do not read.

Rekindled spirits
are found in blessings of time
sometimes as pictures.

Here now is standing
as the yesterdays sit down
and relinquish hold.

Searching tomorrow
leaves today not searched at all
and riddled with loss.

Summers are gathered
as winter and spring subsides
leaving beginnings.

An anchor will hold
if it’s put in solid ground.
The Lord will not slip.

Trials are entered
when our footsteps are unleashed
with times tomorrow.

Effortless we fall,
yet we struggle to stand up
again and again.

Chain links are well forged
as we misuse our journey.
Don’t make chains to Hell.

In but a moment
time will move from here to there,
yet we won’t notice.

Many find refuge
in memories they’ve gathered
and don’t see today.

Ink drops are layered
as our words with anger grow.
They can smear with time.

Sessions of beauty
are the blessings in disguise
that we need to find.

Hearts in winter
find the flavors of snowflakes
as beautiful scenes.

Lining up problems
so to count them one and all,
might lead to sorrow.

Looming arrogance
will most surely end friendless.
Don’t be too prideful.
