ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

So how’s life treating ya? It’s doing pretty nice up here.
Most of the snow has melted away, but guess what LOL?
It’s snowing again right now. I put Benny out to go potty
and he was catching the snowflakes when I looked out a
little later hehehe. He though a little later wanted to come
inside, because he was wet and cold LOL. Benny was on
the top of the steps. I unhooked his leash and he ran right
in the house and was ready to play with me hehehe. I said
OK Benny go in the PC room and he made a mad dash to
say hello to Judy. He’s now in our bedroom chewing on
his favorite rawhide chew bone 🙂 Well, it seems that the
ground is turning white once again, but I don’t think it
will stay that way for long if the temperatures hold out.
Judy and I had a great visit from her daughter Mandy
and the grandkids Chance and Rylee. Little Benny had
a great time playing with them. They loved him and he
loved them. Rylee tried to carry Benny and was doing
a fairly decent job of doing it for a 4 year old hehehe.
Rylee’s and Benny’s birthdays are just 3 days apart, but
of course Benny is just 8 months old right now and will
be 1 year old in July hehehe. Yeppers, he’s our little boy.
He lets us know if he’s gotta go out by heading for the
door. He don’t bark. He barked once the day we got
him when I went to the bathroom, but that was the end
of it. I guess he figures he ain’t gotta bark to get our
attention LOL. It’s still snowing. It’s supposed to snow
tonight as well. Oh well, this is Northeastern Maine.
Judy’s over there playing on her Farmtown hehehehe.
We live such an exciting life hehehe! It’s 32F degrees
outside right now. For some reason it don’t feel like
spring. I wonder freaking why LOL? Hehehe I was
reaching for a Reeses peanut butter cup and Benny
heard the rattling of the bag and came running fast
thinking I was gonna give him a doggy treat hehehe.
Judy reached and gave him one of his Tiny Bones
and he snatched it and ran in the other room with it.
He’s so silly LOL. Judy and I thank God every day
for giving Benny to us. We sure needed him and it
seems that he also needed us as well. God works
His miracles every day, but we may not be aware
of them, because we cannot see them. A lot of His
miracles are hidden inside blessings that we often
overlook. Benny is back in here with us trying to
fix his bed to his liking LOL. Yep, I’m glad we
found Benny. He’s made a big difference in our
lives. Gives us a reason to get up and go outside.
Whoever said being retired on disability was the
greatest needs to get their head examined. I’m not
a homebody. I hate being stranded at home due
to my illnesses, but now that we have Benny, it’s
not as bad as it was getting for me. I still would love
to be able to take off driving and visit my friends
and family or even be able to fly, but I cannot,
so I thank God for Benny. I know that there are
many out there that have it a lot worse than I do
and I pray for them every day. If you think you’ve
got it bad, then take a good look around. You
might just see a person that makes your ailments
seem like the common cold. Thank God for the
good things that you find in your life. If you don’t
see them, it’s only because you are not looking.
We each have blessings every day, but we might
be letting our focus be but only on the bad stuff.
Now I believe it’s time for me to be taking my lil
trip back through all that I’ve written here to see
if I can find a good word or phrase that I can use
for the title for today’s brand new poem. So, it’s
away I go to that place of my recollection that I
like to call RECOLLECT VILLE. I believe I may
have stumbled upon a good title. Now let’s see if
I can write a poem worth reading using it hehehe.
Here’s goes….

Now I Believe

Found in my purposes
I’ve found some places
that I believe that
hold smiling faces.
Now I believe that
timeframes I see
are but an echo
of my history.
Many circumstances
fall into view
changing the pages
of both me and you.
Turning each corner
now I believe
I have found blessings
that God did conceive.
Giving me reasons
for everyday
by giving choices
within His Way.
Now I believe that
God gave to me
blessings on stages
of ages for free.

So, there ya go. Oh yea, it’s still snowing, but not
as heavy as it was earlier. Yet, it is supposed to snow
again tonight LOL. Life goes on. It seems as normal
up here hehehe. Judy had to go to the other room and
Benny was right behind her like a shadow hehehehehe.
We had some nice weather last week. A few days that
got up to the mid 70’s, but that’s gone hehehe. Now
it’s back to the regular schedule for us up here LOL……
There’s not much else to report from us at the Pearce’s
Place hehehe. Just hanging waiting to see if and when
springtime will arrive. I thought it was here last week,
but it was just an illusion 🙂 as winter teased us hehe.
I guess 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 with yet another one
being a Christmas poem. Also I wrote 22 more haiku
for all of my haiku lovers out there. I hope you enjoy
them. Oh yea, one of my poems is about Benny hehe.
Ok so now I need to be searching for that old off switch
that loves to try and elude me, but not before I wish
you a most wonderful God filled week. Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too. Now to find that silly
off switch. Hehehe found it hidden among some of
the burdocks that managed to get on Benny when he
went outside. We’ve decided to started calling him
Benny Burdock LOL. Anyways, I see ya hiding there.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S. I once again wrote some more
Thoughts To Use. They’ll be at the end
as usual hehehe

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

Tomorrows Journey

Tomorrows troubles
begin with our worries
often in place of
unneeded hurries.
Patience is gathered
when we’re in places
found as remembered
in yesterdays traces.
Tomorrows journey
begins when we move
leaving our footsteps
in today’s groove.
Often some troubles
will follow through
into tomorrows
things that we do.
Don’t let those troubles
to be all you see.
Find all the lessons
from your history.

Wintertime’s Methods

Wintertime’s methods
come with a breeze
blowing transitions
of leaves on the trees.
In the scenario
of wintertime’s days
I’ve seen white snowflakes
in so many ways.
Coming down softly
and then with a gust
also some patterns
that it does adjust.
Maybe just snowflakes
lightly to see,
and then some blizzards
seen so wintery.
Wintertime’s methods
soon fade into spring
leaving remembered
its own everything.

Wonderful Times

Right now my heartbeat
beats memories
things from the fragments
of deepest of seas.
Swells of the ocean
coming ashore
right now my heartbeat
seems to just soar.
Watching the seagulls
flying away
within my memories
of day after day.
Right now my heartbeat
is but a dream
beating of blessings
found in a stream.
Sweet rushing waters
found long ago
after the raindrops
made them to flow.
Right now this instant
I can remember
timeframes from childhoods
found in December.
I can remember now
those very days
as I just dream on
now in a gaze.
All of those memories
distant designs
are now remembered
as wonderful times.

The Middle of March

The March winds blow
as scenes surmise
while the clouds
just paint the skies.
The middle of March
is found and seen
sometimes as
the wondrous dream.
Spring awaits us
as March thrives
with its daily
scenes surprise.
Sometimes raindrops,
sometimes wind.
Sometimes snowflakes
will not end.
March in Maine
is sometimes found
still with bits of
snow around.
Springtime’s doorway
might come through
when it sees it’s
time to do.
In New England
March might be
just a little
wintery.
Yet then springtime
might be found
with its raindrops
on the ground.
Pitter patters
of the rain
will make flowers
soon in frame.
Maybe soon the
winters cold
will be just a
day of old.

Show The Blessings

Show me blessings
found from God
seen as not just
our applaud.
Show me glimmers
of His name
found within
what you attain.
Show me not just
your desires,
but what all that
God acquires.
Let your blessings
be not found
standing in just
sight and sound.
Show the blessings
within you
in the things
you daily do.

My Sweet Puppy

Footsteps frolic
on the floor
with the sounds
that I adore.
Tiny footsteps
tiny feet
stepping lightly
oh so sweet.
It’s my puppy
walking true
here and now
within my view.
While sometimes
I might not see
him just walking
silently.
Little footsteps
he will make
when I sleep
or sit awake.
My sweet puppy
is my friend
which is surely
a Godsend.

Dusty Trails

Because a journey
falls apart
does not mean
it’s not God’s art.
Sometimes lessons
dusty trails
are what’s found
with winds of fails.
Dusty minutes
trails of time
sometimes might
seems full of grime.
Yet some dusty
trails we find
might be there
to change our mind.
Dusty trails
of thereunto
could just be
a time to view.

Mornings Days

The day awakens
with the sun
and what all
that God has done.
Time is minutes
counted true
in the things then
so anew.
God’s Own artwork
starts each day
without ending
in His Way.
There are blessings
in the skies
sometimes as a
bird that flies.
The days ending
then starts night
with God’s blessings
to delight.
All the stars
that twinkle true
God has placed
for me and you.
Scenes to see
as moments gaze
until time for
mornings days.

Ocean Sky

Waves of days
come clouds of white
with some more
to then unite.
The ocean sky
is seen above
with God’s Hands
and filled with love.
Waves come crashing
to and fro
with the scenes of
rain and snow.
The ocean sky
is found complete
with the paintings
none compete.
God’s Own paintings
waves of days
depict journeys
He displays.
As a portal
to a stage
with the turning
of a page.
Ocean sky
of Timeless glance
is God’s blessings
song and dance.

Yesterdays Christmas

While holding memoirs
of yesterdays past
you might just miss
the shadows that cast.
Yesterdays Christmas
might live inside
as a great river
that’s so deep and wide.
Yet for a moment
yesterdays view
might need to be
just living in you.
Let the new Christmases
coming to town
be seen with joy
of all there around.
Let all the yesterdays
Christmases be
joyful thanksgivings
in your history.
Don’t let your Christmas
to just fall apart.
Share it with Jesus
deep in your heart.
Each day you breathe
no matter the day
keep Christmas living
to not go away.
Yesterdays Christmas
needs not your sorrow.
Live as it’s Christmas
today and tomorrow.

Haiku
for Mar 24, 2012

Sometimes a moment
just needs a little breather,
so have some patience.

March winds may blow strong,
but they give way to some peace
ever so often.

A letter from spring
says flowers are soon to come.
Get your camera.

Today has begun
with breezes blowing briskly
which soon will subside.

Springs budding flowers
are seen as shadows of time
just awaiting to bloom.

Today’s a blessing,
Tomorrow’s a mystery,
Yesterday is gone.

Venturing footsteps
can go in the wrong places.
Take Jesus with you.

Lessons from others
are sometimes real hard to grasp
due to our egos.

A sweet child of God
brings forth the blessing of love
that is often missed.

Changes in people
often misinterpreted
lead many astray.

While counting ones flaws,
search to find your own failures
and then find the good.

A forest of thoughts
are found with many tree limbs
sometimes misleading.

Many views in life
are gathered by bumpy roads
that led to heartaches.

A glimmer of hope
lives in everyone of us.
Jesus put it there.

Mind blowing moments
will sometimes bring fear alive
found as excitement.

The sound of breathing
is the wind as it pulsates
as the day goes by.

Hearing a heartbeat
means not only life is there,
but hope is alive.

Being a good friend
won’t get you into Heaven,
but it’s a good start.

Looking in mirrors
you might see your reflection
as just a facade.

While bringing flowers
let yourself also be found
as a true blessing.

Today has begun
with chances for tomorrow
if we do our best.

Many write letters
leaving true feelings aside.
Don’t write empty words.

Thoughts To use
©by Bill Pearce

The painting of a heart
is the beating found inside.
The artwork is one brushstroke
after another as time moves along.
Find the many paintings inside
one another and try to make
them not just a drawing,
but a masterpiece.
Let God help.

God bless from Bill
©Mar 20, 2012

Memories are a blessing
so don’t let them be soured.
Keep the good memories
as smiles for another day.

God shows us miracles
that occur often through
the unexpected which
turn into our memories.

God bless from Bill

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

So how have ya been? We’ve been busy trying to teach
our little puppy what’s right and what’s wrong. It’s been
quite a chore, but he’s slowly learning LOL. He has only
barked one time since we got him. That was a time that
I went to the rest room and he couldn’t follow, but so far
that has been the only time he’s barked. Whines a little
when he doesn’t get his way, but he doesn’t even do that
much hehehe. Now if we could just get him to understand
where he’s supposed to poop and pee. In time I guess 🙂
We’ve only had him a week. Right now he’s sleeping on
the floor right beside Judy and I. We just ate breakfast
and fed him. As soon as I finish this article, we’re taking
Benny outside for a little walk to do you know what hehe.
So, what else is going on up here? Well it was raining
pretty heavy this morning. I listened to it as it beat its
rhythms on the roof. It’s a serenading sound. Judy and
I took turns walking Benny after it stopped raining, but
he didn’t do anything, so we’re hoping that now that
after he’s eaten, he WILL do number one and two when
we take him out in a few. So, what else is there to tell
ya? Not much! Judy and I are still playing Farmtown
on Facebook LOL. Since Benny’s gotten here, we’ve
not had much time for our hidden object games hehehe,
but I’m sure that will change in time. Thursday, Judy’s
sister and her hubby brought their little puppy named
Fenway over to play with Benny. Those two ran and
played so much till both of them were getting tuckered
out LOL. Benny was panting hehehe. Fenway is a
Parti Yorky. He’s about half the size of Benny hehehe.
Benny became very sad when they had to go home and
took Fenway. Yet as dogs are, he soon got over it.
I’m sure though he will see Fenway again, being that
Trudy and Dennis are moving up here soon from their
home down in Southern Maine. I’m glad we were able
to get Benny. He was a rescue dog and if nobody ever
bought him, then they were going to have to put him
to sleep. Thank you God for giving us to him and him
to us. God knows what we each one need. Often we
though will think we need other, but God knows the
truth. Our humanity usually steps up to bat as it
tries to tell us we need something when in actuality
it’s just simply something we’re wanting. Are you
caught up in your carnal human wants or have you
taken into realization that what you want might
not be good for you? Let God help you see passed
your carnal instincts and see the truth. Now I believe
it’s time for me to be taking my little venture back
through all that I have 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 place of my recollection that I like to
call RECOLLECT VILLE. I believe I may have
found a good title. Now, let’s see what I can do
with it if anything at all LOL! Here goes!…

Our Humanity

Seemingly wanting
times that we find
shows our humanity
and state of mind.
Sometimes our moments
wanting so true
are really no good
for me or you.
It’s our humanity
that’s sometimes showing
places we should not
ever be going.
When our own will
has just run awry
we each need Jesus
to help us get by.
It’s our humanity
that brings us troubles
sometimes as minutes
seeming as doubles.
Let not humanity
to take its stride
wanting all the things
that should not abide.
Jesus can help with
our humanity
showing us Heaven’s
greatest degree.

Well, there ya go. Did that make any sense to ya? I’m typing
as fast as I can so that we can hurry and take Benny outside
for a walk. Hopefully there’s not too many faux pas hehehe.
I reckon it’s time for me to be telling ya what I tell ya every
week and that is I wrote some poems and haiku. 10 more
poems with one of them being sort of Christmassy hehehehe.
Also I wrote 22 more haiku for all my haiku lovers out there.
Oh and I wrote all of the poems and haiku this morning after
I traded places with Judy on watching Benny outside LOL.
So, you’ll notice all the poems and haiku dated today hehehe.
Ok, with that said I guess I need to be searching for that
old off switch that loves to elude me, but nt before I wish you
a most wonderful God filled week. Remember, Jesus loves
you and we do too. Now to find that freaking off switch 🙂
Hehehehe found it hunkerd down with benny on the floor 🙂
Hehehehehe. Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Find Times of Smiling

Times are found
with minutes counted
with some troubles
times surmounted.
Times remembered
then and there
sometimes need
a little fresh air.
Try to remember
all the good days
that with an instant
Lord God you praise.
Times might echo
the things we’ve seen
sometimes a nightmare
and sometimes a dream.
Let not your sadness
from times long ago
to fill your future
with only just woe.
Find times of smiling
of echoes from past
that help the future
to take on that cast,
Maybe not like them,
but surely a way
to help you find smiles
right now in today.

Morning Beckons

Morning beckens

drops of dew.
Winters window’s
closing fast
leaving only
shadows cast.

Springtimes window

with its blossoms
all around.
Morning beckens

Raindrops

Raindrops falling
from the sky
seem with rhythms
in my eye.
Beating patterns
moments scenes
that can turn to
rushing streams.
Raindrops falling
can be found
as some patterns
on the ground.
With the raindrops
things revive
as they surely
come alive.
Drop by drop
the moments time
display raindrops
own design.
Sometimes flowing
going through
while some might just
be like dew.
Landing softly
on some leaves
while it somehow
interweaves.

Seek His Peace

Soon our chances
will be done
and the ending’s
then begun.
Don’t let chances
pass you by
to find peace in
Adonai.
Let Lord Jesus
find you true
before chances
then are through.
We’ve no vision
when we’ll cease
so we need to
seek His peace.
Right now chances
that we see
might be all that’s
you and me.
Let Lord Jesus
thrive in you
as you face each
day anew.

Tomorrows Found

Nows a doorway
to tomorrow
through the pathways
sometimes sorrow.
Tomorrows found
we might just see
as the same as
history.
Our tomorrows
on display
are built on our
now today.
Tomorrows dreams
of false and true
are built on
the things we do.
It takes actions
often done,
yet some times just
God’s Own Son.
Jesus will give a
helping hand
when He sees we
can’t withstand.
Tomorrows found
from day to day
need God’s blessings

Christmas Shadows

Like a shadow

All the fragments
we remember
that were found
amidst December.
Christmas shadows
glimmer true
right now in my
inner view.
Beating in my
heart so sweet
Christmas shadows
do accrete.
Blooming attuning
songs I’ve heard
while concluding
every word.
Like a shadow
it will come
as remembered
then and some.
Christmas blessings
shadow play
as remembered
then that day.

Your Dreaming Door

Nighttime brings dreamers
some time which to sleep
given with blessings
of seasons to keep.
Yet sometimes sleeplessness
is but the scene
preventing the dreamers
from finding a dream.
Nighttimes own segue
sometimes might just be
only a pattern
of your history.
If you have let your
anger be fed
and not sought peace before
going to bed
all of your dreams then
might then compare
to a horrific
moments nightmare.
Let peace be found
in forgiving and more
before you seek sleep
through your dreaming door.

Pour In Jesus

Making faces
smiles and grins
can make better
outs and ins.
Sometimes people
just need you
to smile big
with things you do.
Also smiling
might then be

Let not frowns to
take control.
Put smiles in
today’s big bowl.
Pour in Jesus
and then find
your smile might be
a real design.

Lessons Stirring

While we are moving
in right also wrong
lessons are stirring
in where we belong.
So often pathways
so bumpy in stride
lead us to Jesus
to surely abide.
With lessons stirring
sometimes might just move
seemingly as an
uneven groove.
Yet often pathways
we’ve stirred about
lead us to places
we see no way out.
But in those instances
God is awaiting
us to let Him then
make storms abating.
He can make better
from what that is done
with the beginning
of each morning sun.

God Sent Puppies

A little puppy
can love without end
even if you don’t
think it a friend.
A puppy’s love
is greater to view
than anything that
many can do.
A little puppy
loves without doubting
as when it misses you
it begins pouting.
God loves us more
than a puppy can do,
for He will never
change in His view.
God gave us puppies
to help us to see
that one can love you
to greatest degree.
Sometimes a moment
might cause despair
thinking that no one
can ever care,
but God sent puppies
to show us so sweet
that He can love us
with its tiny feet.

Haiku
for Mar 18, 2012

Life’s sometimes bumpy
as a street needing repair.
Let God repair it.

Winter snow will fade
as springtime comes with flowers
blooming in sunshine.

Notable changes
in decades that have gone by
are often by us.

Playing a fools game
leaves open doors to moments
that you might regret.

Yesterdays success
is just a mere memory.
What does today hold?

Painting a picture
without use of any paints
will show no picture.

The sight of today
gives us glimmers of hopeful
with a little prayer.

Mornings arrival
comes with seeds for our heartbeats
watered by Jesus.

A minutes folly
shadows determination
as many mistakes.

Being a bungler
does not mean you are stupid,
just incompetent.

Things heard in the night
often are taken wrongly
as we decipher.

Pitter patters sound
as raindrops fall on the roof
with a drummers beat.

Tomorrows pathways
need today’s many morsels
of which to survive.

Because is a word
often heard as the answer
to what that’s done wrong.

Glimmers of Heaven
can be seen in a teardrop
of love in a day.

The wet soggy ground
gives way for flowers to grow
as sunshine provides.

Too many people
seek for their own happiness
and not for others.

With expectations
comes sometimes mere illusions
of what one can do.

Windows to today
are often seen through yesterday
and what all we thought.

Having can destroy
when what’s had is not needed.
Seek not to just have.

Walking through doorways
can find you in much trouble,
so make sure it’s right.

Marking territories
is sometimes unconsciously done
as we move through life.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

So here it is a week gone by leaving only glimmers of it
in the shadows. How has your weekend been? Hopefully
it’s not been too crazy for ya. Judy and I picked up our
new addition to our family Friday night. He had a rough
flight. Had a two hour lay over in Detroit which kept
him stuck in that crate for about 5 hours or more. Poor
thing. He was whining profusely when we picked him
up, but during the car ride home while sitting in my lap,
he calmed and began to relax a bit. He laid there like
a good little guy and just looked around. Then later in
the trip he climbed up and rested his little head on my
shoulder as he watched the world in the rear of the car.
Benny is a whitish Peekapoo and he’s 7 months old.
He loves to hang around Judy and I and he’s not like
most of the excitable dogs I’ve seen. He hasn’t even
let out a bark yet. He whines a little when we block
off the living room so he can’t get in where we are.
Also he follows us wherever we go like a shadow 🙂
If you’re on Facebook, then you’ve probably already
seen pictures of him. I’ll put some of the pictures in
my stationery, but for those of you receiving this
via plain text version, SORRY. I’ll send ya some
pictures if you ask me to. Well it’s time for me to be
moving along with the journal. The weather up this
way has been not too awful bad. We’ve still got
a lot of snow hanging around, but if the weather
keeps on like it has, all of the snow might be gone
in a few weeks. Today’s high is supposed to be
around 39F degrees and tomorrows is supposed
to be in the mid 50’s. Anyways, back to Benny.
He’s had fun walking around on the ice and snow
outside. We though have to clean him up after
he’s gotten off into a few muddy spots LOL. Oh
well, that’s part of it. He’s a good dog. He’s our
little boy hehehe. They said he was potty trained,
but he hasn’t quite got it down yet. He’ll catch
on. Sometimes he’ll just sit and stare at you and
this is his way of saying he’s gotta go. Because
of that I wish he would speak up hehehe Bark or
something LOL. No matter, God has found us
a new member of our family to help us to keep
our sanity. Of course, it’s at small portions at
times, being Benny doesn’t wanna go to bed 🙂
I thank God for connecting me with Judy and
showing me that true love does exist. I was
beginning to have my doubts, but He renewed
them. We all have our weak moments to where
we might think that life has no chances and we
may never find peace. God is always there with
each step we take to give us what we’re needing.
Yet what we’re needing might be far from what
we think we really need. Sometimes our wants
of situations can be clouded by our humanity.
Look beyond what you think you need and try
to see what God is providing for you that you
really needed. Often it’s the lessons that we
needed that we might wish to avoid, but God
knows we need them. Let peace find your
heart as God fills it with love. Now it’s time
for me to be taking my little venture on back
through all that I’ve written here to see if I
can find a good word or phrase that I might
be able to write a decent poem using. So it’s
away I go to that place of my recollection
that I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE.
I think I may have stumbled on a good title,
but the proof is in the pudding hehehehehe.
Here goes…..

My Little Venture

Sometimes my footsteps
might seem to trip
leading me to a
bad little sip.
My little venture
of daily affairs
might be the answer
to so many prayers.
Even if troubles
come within my wake,
God makes real sure
that there is no mistake.
Sometimes my footsteps
might just be seen
walking down surely
an overflowed stream.
Yet surely God will
help all the while
my little venture
down bumpy times mile.

So that’s it. I hope ya liked the poem and also my
rambling did not drive ya batty hehehe. I know Benny
was the height of the topic huh. Hey, we love him and
he is so sweet. Judy just got in from taking for a little
walk outside with his little sweater on. Judy and I went
on FarmTown late last night and did all of our farms
being we didn’t get to do them Friday. We sort of had
a clue that we wouldn’t be able to do them Friday so
we planted all 2 and 3 day crops LOL. Don’t we lead
such an exciting life!!!? Not really huh LOL! Nope,
we just enjoy the days as best that we can as they each
pass us by. Benny’s asleep right behind me LOL 🙂
Ok so you’re probably saying, enough about Benny
already huh hehehe!!!!!!!! Next week I might find a
few different topics to talk about hehehe, but don’t
hold your breath. Hey, we’re new parents hehehe
sort of to a little puppy and we’re learning more
and more about him everyday the same as he’s also
learning about us hehehe. Well it’s time once agin
for me to be telling you what I tell you every week
and that is I wrote 10 more poems and 22 more
haiku for all of my haiku lovers roaming around
out there hehehe. I even wrote a poem about,
yes you guessed it, Benny LOL. I hope you like
some of the poems and haiku. Have a wonderful
week and oh yes don’t forget if you haven’t done
it yet, to move your clocks ahead an hour if you
are in a country or state that does so. Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too. Now it’s time for
me to be searching to find that freaking off switch.
Found it hiding behind Benny while he’s laying
there snoozing. Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

P.S. I also wrote a couple more
Thoughts To Use that will be at
the end of the journal.

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

Stories Told

Certain stories
told and heard
can become a
silent word.
Moments stories
fall from view
when we cease to
tell ones true.
Let the stories
from the past
be what captures
shadows cast.
Don’t let stories
be just lies.
Let them shine
enlightened skies.
Yet some stories
need find rest,
for they’re surely
not the best.

Little Benny

Pitter patters
in the night
sometimes sound as
horrors sight.
Yet those footsteps
that we hear
are the sounds
of sweet sincere.
Pitter patters
on the floor
unto every
open door.
It’s our puppy
to and fro
popping in
to say hello.
Little Benny
is so sweet
as he walks
with tiny feet.
Then he heads back
to his bed
so to rest his
tiny head.

Not Just Trying To Be

Jumping hopping

many just move on

Often people
hurried true
only want to
be like you.
Jumping hopping
popping around
seeking just to
then to astound.
Let your only
sights ones see
be that which is

Not just trying
to be found
as ones favorite
sight and sound.

Could Be A Puzzle

A picture a puzzle
shaping a place
could be a season
found on ones face.
Sometimes a puzzle
we put together
is just a moment
found under weather.
Seek for the puzzles
true depth dimensions
found within time
of others intentions.
A picture that’s painted
then torn apart
could be a puzzle
of ones weathered art.
Found as a puzzle
missing some pieces
looking for time
that Heaven releases.

Minutes Tick

Minutes tick on
as time goes
filling many
with some woes.
Lessons ventured
we attain
often drive ones
then insane.
Minutes tick on
as a scene
sometimes as some
moments lean.
Often shadows
minutes tick
make some people
really sick.
Let those minutes
ticking by
show you what that’s
how and why.

Loading Memories

Loading memories

Scenes are blooming

Wintertime’s Shadows

Wintertime’s shadows
come with a heart
beating as snowflakes,
God’s work of art.
Scenes all around me
seemingly flow
painted as artwork
that’s white as snow.
Wintertime’s meadows
flow as a stream
painted with moments
that seem as a dream.
Flowing so graceful,
wintertime’s found
with fluffy snowflakes
seen all there around.
Painted as pictures
fluffy and white
wintertime’s shadows
are day also night.

Scenes of wonder

after long times

A Learning Machine

Within a doorway
opens a view
leading to somewhere
then thereunto.
Within a window
there might be seen
places we think that
are just a dream.
Doorways and windows
tattered from time
can become problems
of daily design.
So use those doorways
of which that you found
to find some peace then
on God’s Solid Ground.
Within the windows
that you’ve surely viewed
you might see things that
you’ve misconstrued.
Let all those doorways
and windows you’ve seen

Wintertime Will One Day Go

Snowflakes of winter
fade fast from sight
as springs arrival
comes to delight.
Yet maybe white snow
still here and there
paints a few moments,
wintertime’s flair.
Springtime’s arrival
will surely show
after the moments
of wintertime’s snow.
Right now the minutes
of seasons I find
display the patterns
of still wintertime.
But of course wintertime
will one day go
as it diminishes
flavors of snow.

Haiku
for Mar 10, 2012

The weather changes
leaving portions of itself
in the days ahead.

Methods of madness
is formed from wanna gone wild
determination.

Believing in spirits
gives way to belief in God
and more that exist.

Not allowing now
to change with its importance
could cause you to fall.

Many see momentum
as a means for hurrying,
but others see patience.

Leaving a heartache
without seeking remedy
could become baggage.

A hole in a heart
leaves room for troublesome views
found within desire.

Pointing at today
gives no cure for its meaning.
It just makes it seen.

Noticing flowers
gives them reason for blooming,
but they don’t need it.

Yesterdays shadows
come as sometimes bitter pills
that time has displayed.

Glancing at snowflakes
each one falls to Earth softly
while building a scene.

Paintings of people
only display segments seen
that which was painted.

Silver illusions
come as old age from a child
thinking he knows best.

Breathing in today
gives hope for better chances
that come from blessings.

A small puppy’s heart
can hold more love than people
for it’s love is pure.

Glancing at morning
you can see its arrival
even through the clouds.

Silence of shadows
comes as awakening minutes
counted without light.

Bruising a true love
can come back as a nightmare
haunting your future.

Beginnings in time
have their own special moments
that they must move on.

While dreaming of time
you might find a few problems
that truth does provide.

Hindered by winter,
springtime comes slowly in sight
with flowers blooming.

Today’s a new day
filled with many hopes and dreams.
We need to trust God.

ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends

How are you doing? Judy and I are doing fine. It snowed
some more yesterday/Saturday. It’s supposed to snow some
more this evening on into tomorrow evening. Though right
now it’s 36F degrees at the high. It’s supposed to get back
down to the teens tonight. Well, Judy and I went outside
Saturday and took pictures while it was snowing real heavy.
I went ahead and took a trip out to check our mail at the
mailbox. OH yea, Judy was accepted on SSD. She and I
are now retired together. We’ve bought a little doggy to
keep us company. It’s a Peekapoo named Benny hehehe.
We’re going down to Bangor to pick him up at the airport
this week. He was a rescue dog and is 7 months old so we
got him fairly cheap. Benny is 10 pounds and all white 🙂
We’re both looking forward to seeing him in person hehe
or in real life doggy. I had sworn for almost all my life
that I would never have a dog in the house, but being
that Judy and I are both retired, we have time to spend
on him and also Benny can be the baby that we were
not able to have together. We’ve posted a few pictures
of him on Facebook. When we get him, I’m sure that
he will be in a few of my email stationeries hehehehe.
So what else is going on in this part of the world hmm?
Well, other than Judy getting on SSD, there isn’t much
else to report. The weather is getting a little warmer,
but we still have tons of snow outside. I took a little
look outside a moment ago and it almost blinded me.
Judy just fixed us both some croissants for breakfast.
Mmmmm sausage and egg. Well I guess I need to
move along with this journal so I can eat this thing
before it gets cold hehe. So now as I look back on
all that has happened in our lives, I can see Jesus
holding our hand through the bumpy stuff. It seems
that when things get out of hand, He comes with
His Love to protect us. Never think for an instant
that God is not there. Sometimes He may be just
wanting you to step up to the plate and do your part.
Too often we will sometimes forget that God wants
us to experience things as lessons. If He were to
prevent any type of problems in our lives, then we
would not find any lessons or methods of becoming
stronger. I paused for a moment just now to take
a bite of my sausage and egg croissant to give me
some strength hehehe. Yes, God expects us to do
the best that we can and then He will do the rest.
We often will wonder why He has not changed a
bad moment or helped someone that in our eyes is
in need, but we’ve got to remember, that He knows
what is needed and it is out of the realm of our vision.
We only see portions of the puzzle, not the whole
picture. Today, do the best that you can do and
then allow God to do His part in His Will and Way.
Don’t play God! We are only human and with a
limited view on life. So I guess it’s time once again
for me to be heading back through all that I have
written here to see if I can find a good word or
phrase that I can use for the title for today’s brand
new poem. So it’s off I go to that little place that
I like to call RECOLLECT VILLE to find a title.
I believe I may have found a fairly good title to use.
Now let’s see what I can do with it hehehehehehe.
Here goes….

Through The Bumpy Stuff

Found amidst turmoil
some bumps that we find
might seem as moments
that God is unkind.
On through the bumpy stuff
you might just see
segments of flavors
of your history.
Sometimes the troubles
that find us today
are all the answers
from God as we pray.
You might not see them
the answers that come,
but they are there then
and momently done.
On through the bumpy stuff
you might arrive
at your conclusions
of how they derive.
Let Jesus help you
find peace in the air
on through the bumpy stuff
answers to prayer.

I hope that made a little sense to ya hehe. I never know
if what I’m writing makes any sense to anyone but me 🙂
Oh well, I’m sure God will do with it what He sees fit.
Well, I just finished my Croissant. It got a little cold,
but still tasted great hehe. Those Jimmy Dean brand
Croissants are the bestest LOL yummy. There ain’t
much else to report from the Pearce’s place in the cold
north. Nope, I think I’ve about said it all hehehehehe.
Yet I still wish prayer for my sister in law Barbara and
my good friend Tiny/Donald. Barbara has done the last
of her radiation treatments and doing well. She is at
the moment considered cancer free 🙂 She’ll have to do
a lot of follow ups in the days to come, but for the most
part she is ready to go back to work. God is GREAT.
Ok, so again as soon as we get our new addition to
our family named Benny, I will take pictures of him
to put in my stationery and I’ll also upload them to
my facebook and I’m sure Judy will upload to hers as
well LOL. Or she might just steal mine and tag em 🙂
In any sense, I’ll keep ya posted. Not sure when we
are to go pick him up, but the lady said she’ll send us
the airport info either today or tomorrow. Can’t wait.
Well, that’s about it. Now it’s time for me to tell
you what I tell you every week and that is, I wrote
some more poems and haiku. Yeppers I wrote 10
more poems and 22 more haiku for all my haiku
lovers out there. I wrote all of the poems and haiku
last night. I hope you enjoy some of them. Now it’s
about time for me to begin my searching for that
freaking 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 that just loves to play hide and seek 🙂
Found that little whippersnapper hiding under
where my croissant used to be under my napkin.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

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

Some Great Peace

Weathered souls
of time gone by
seek for peace
through Adonai.
Seasoned hearts
of there and to
might be found
torn through and through.
Yet those hearts
of seasoned places
can be found
with smiling faces
for through Jesus
God’s Own Son
some great peace
will be begun
and those weathered
times about
will find ways
of different route.

Let Not Anger

Held in anger
will explode
somewhere sometime
down the road.
Not relieving
all that strain
might just drive your
mind insane.
Let your anger
find release
through a little
Jesus peace.
Also make your
moments heard
with a little
prayerful word.
Let not anger
drive your voice.
Seek for blessings
to rejoice.
Look for peaceful
in a frame

just goes insane.

Pools of Time

Ripples mimic
ponds that sway,
pools of time
from day to day.
Scenic memoirs
in the mind
ripple gently
time to time.
In those ripples
scenes are found
sometimes as
some sight and sound.
Pools of time
with scenic views
ripple sometimes
in our shoes.
As we walk on
minutes miles
pools of time
can become smiles.
Scenes from yonder
then and there
become glimpses

He Imagined

In our own imagery
we might conceive
that we are better
than ones believe.
Lord God imagined us
each in His sight
each one unique
that He did delight.
God gave us gifts
that we might not use
simply because
we sought just to lose.
Often decisions
of ours day to day
are not just ours,
but His Will and Way.
Yes He imagined us
all not the same
within His image
unique through His Name.

Lessons From Troubles

Pointless are lessons
when they’re ignored
leaving ones standing
a little deplored.
Sometimes our lessons
that we might find
are just a moment
of wrong frame of mind.
Looking for scapegoats
through all the mess
could bring us moments
that we need confess.
Lessons from troubles
often are found
better remembered
when time comes around.
Sometimes our memories
found in the past
bring us the lessons
that might surely last.

Morning Comes Brightly

With dawns arrival
comes such a glow
such as through winter
the glimmer of snow.
Morning comes brightly
when night is all done
and it brings sweetly
the bright winters sun.
Glimmers of tree limbs
with snow oh so white
seem as some paintings
of a wonderful sight.

found as sweet winter
shines on every tree.
Snowy white segments
seen so faraway
show me the blessings

Times Hurricane

Stepping through thresholds
without first looking
could bring you troubles
timeframes are cooking.
Let not your hurries

Take time to listen
and learn what you can
before you just step out

of thinking in time
can make the difference
of lemon and lime.
Stepping through thresholds
with rush to attain
could lead you surely

A Little Bitty Lie

A little bitty this
and a little bitty that
could be the problems
which got you where you’re at.
A little bitty lie
from something then so small
could become a burden
standing six feet tall.
A little bitty portion
of little bitty this
could become the hardest
lesson on your list.
A little bitty time
that we just do or die
could become our nightmares
we wished would say goodbye.
A little bitty lie
that lives within our minds
can become a problem
found at later times.
So don’t let your lying
to be all that you do
thinking little bitty
won’t come back and haunt you.

Primal Instincts

Primal are our instincts
as our thoughts compel
leading us through sometimes
a little bit of Hell.
Often it’s our instincts
sending us ahead
leading us through troubles
and not good instead.
So that’s why we need to
take note of ourselves
seeing what our wanna
sits upon our shelves.
Do not let your wanna
of primal instincts win
taking you through pathways
leading straight through sin.
Primal instincts are not
always bad you see,
for they sometimes help us
in a slight degree.
Yet it’s best to focus
on what you can do
by just letting Jesus
to live then within you.

Haiku
for Mar 3, 2012

A simple flashlight
can bring to life the nighttime
with just a glimmer.

Sometimes our wording
will mislead those that listen
and cause them sadness.

Impatient flowers
might bloom while under the snow
and just freeze to death.

Terminal illness
only brings about new life
when found in Heaven.

Situations we find
give us choices to decide
to turn left or right.

Flavors of sunlight
shine through the winters snow
as white flakes of ice.

Seasons are showing
as God’s imagination
with new days to see.

Prayer brings us hopeful
through the darkest of moments
with light from Heaven.

Conclusions we find
could lead us into sorrow
not knowing the truth.

A sentence in time
said real hateful through anger
could destroy your life.

Forgiveness brings hope
through the shadows of turmoil
giving now a chance.

Standing on the fence
between what’s good and what’s bad
could lead you to Hell.

Now is a moment
that time will never repeat,
but look just like it.

Leave your tomorrows
as things that you prepare for.
Today gives you that time.

Hearing some thunder
only gives notice to storms
which you might not see.

Bus loads of troubles
carry the weight of heartaches
that need unloaded.

Glancing at true love
while thinking of its blessing
makes it much greater.

Chances are given
for the actions that we move.
We often screw up.

Found in innocence
is the birth of young babies
with time to begin.

When a mere lifestyle
gets lost and dismembered
it needs Jesus Grace.

The grand illusion
of a thief that finds a gain
is just deception.

Pages of a book
are often turned too quickly
to get to the end.

Although you might find anger,
you can find peace in a moment
of prayer. Now is just a moment
that time provides with good and
bad. Prayer gives us chances to
revive and find the lessons through
the bad and let some peace to be
found through God as we grow
much stronger.
