ANIMAL’S GREETINGS

Hello my friends
and
MERRY CHRISTMAS

It’s almost Christmas and it’s still white as can be outside.
We might get a little bit of warm weather for Christmas eve
and Christmas day.  At least that’s what the predictions are
and they have been wrong before LOL.  I’ve noticed that
through the years the weather predictions will change with
each day gone by hehehe.  So,  only God knows what it will
be doing Christmas day.  Judy and I are planning us a nice
dinner together for Christmas day.  Of course the boys will
get their Christmas treats :).  We got a bit of heavy snow
Wednesday and our Dish cover didn’t work very well.  Yep
it wasn’t long before we could only get two local channels.
I tried to use the water hose to spray some of the snow off
of it,  but our TV Dish is on top of our house and I couldn’t
get close enough to hit it hard enough to knock the snow off.
We don’t have a latter and it wouldn’t of done me any good
anyways,  being I’m sort of scared of heights due to my fall
at work years ago that made 3 one inch holes in my skull
that had to be stapled and stitched closed hehehe.  Before
that I had no fear of heights at all which might of led to me
falling 6 feet into the ends of 3 one inch rods LOL.  Anyway,
it would of been dangerous for anybody that night,  being
the snow makes it even more treacherous.  Even after us
buying and having a dish cover put on the Dish that was
supposed to prevent snow and ice from sticking to it,  it
just held it like a baseball glove.  The snow was that wet
heavy stuff and there was not much of a breeze.  Anyways,
I called Dish up that night and told them I want our dish
lowered so I can reach the darned thing.  The Dish guy
came today,  but after searching could not find anywhere
on our trailer sturdy enough to attach the dish to it,  so it
is still on our roof.  He said he would put it in the books
and told me to call them in spring and he would come
out and put a pole in the ground and attach it there,  but
the ground has too much snow and the ground is frozen
making it way too hard to do it now.  So,  it looks like
if we get or should I say when we get another snowing
like we did Wednesday we will have to find something
else to do.  Maybe watch some of our videos hehehehe.
Our neighbor Mark came over Thursday and climbed
up with his latter and brushed the snow off of our dish.
I couldn’t thank him enough :).  Mark asked me if we
could take them to town sometime so they could shop,
because their car is leaking antifreeze.  I said sure :).
So Friday I went and got him and we went to WalMart
and Hannaford ex Shop and Save and then we headed
to Burger King and I got Judy and I some burgers and
he got him and his significant other some burgers,  then
we headed home.  I had noticed that the driver side
door was being finicky opening it from the outside,  but
didn’t think nothing of it,  but it seems that when the
guy came and plowed our driveway and shoved tons of
snow up against the driver side of the car it damaged
the door handle.  Now the handle doesn’t work at all.
I called our landlord and he was going to come today
and look at it,  but I told him Judy takes care of her
mom on Sundays,  so he will have to come Monday.
I told him we’re expecting our new used bed to get
here then as well LOL.  Our bed has met its maker.
The box springs are crushed and the mattress is worn
out totally.  My mom bought us this bed for a wedding
present back 13 years ago and it has served its time.
Plus our new bed is a queen size and our old one is
just a full size which for 2 large people and very often
two boys/dogs makes for very little room hehehehe.
Judy and I cannot wait to get our new old bed LOL.
We couldn’t afford a brand new bed,  so this will
have to do,  plus it’s better that what we have at the
moment LOL.  Now what else is happening around
this place?  Oh yea,  I went for a little photo drive
while Judy was asleep Friday morning.  The boys
went with me hehehe.  I found some great scenery
to take pictures of.  Some I just held to camera up
in the window while driving 15-20 miles an hour
and I just snapped away,  but often I had to stop
the car and get out and walk to find the best shots.
That is when I sort of noticed that the driver side
door handle was totally messed up.  I got out and
I couldn’t get back in on that side.  I had to keep
going to the passenger side and reach across to
open the driver side door from the inside hehehe.
I guess when we get our SSD at the first of the
year we will get that fixed if our landlord doesn’t
do anything to help us.  Hopefully though he comes
through and gets it righted.  None the less,  life
goes on.  It’s not the end of the world.  We’re not
going to let that ruin our Christmas.  Judy hung
some Christmas balls on our Christmas tree and
it looks GREAT.  She’s been moving stuff around
in the living room making it look more Christmassy.
She moved the treadmill into our spare room and
that helped a lot.  We’ve taken a lot of pictures of
the boys in their Santa suits hehehe.  They look so
cute :).  We’ve been sleeping to Christmas music.
Thank You God for this special time of year.  Your
Son gave us all a way to Heaven that otherwise
we would not have had.  So often many will forget
about the reason for the season and this wonderful
day.  Judy and I will always do our very best to
share Your Glory with others.  Jesus has been our
rock to hold onto through the trials of life and we
thank You for our blessings.  Now I do believe it’s
time for me to begin my little quest 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 of today’s
brand new poem.  So,  it’s away I go to that place
of my recollection that I seem to always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  I do think I found a decent
title way back near the beginning and now after
checking I see that it hasn’t been used as of yet,
but today it shall be used LOL.  Enjoy :).

Being Finicky

With Christmas coming
so many want things
such as what’s golden
or large diamond rings.
Yet being finicky
will not shine so true
what that is best then
inside of you.
Let your acceptance
to find ways of less
then maybe you won’t
get in a mess.
Often being finicky
finds you insane
when Christmas comes with
God to attain.
Through God’s Son Jesus
the gifts are so great
that being finicky
only shows hate.
Allow this great season
of Christmas of more
to lessen finicky
wants from the store.

I hope you enjoyed my rambling and I didn’t bore you
to death hehehe.  Also I hope you liked the poem.  Yes,
I know,  it was another Christmas poem hehehehehe.
As I’ve said before,  I tend to write more Christmas
poems the closer Christmas gets :).  Anyways,  I hope
you got the meaning of it.  So many people stay focused
on their selfish wants instead of seeing the true meaning
of Christmas.  I pray that you keep alive the blessings
that Jesus has given us all through the year and not
just at Christmas.  🙂 It looks like the boys are in our
bedroom enjoying the cartoons hehehe.  Yes they like
to watch cartoons,  but now after checking it looks like
they have drifted off to sleep.  Milo is up with his head
on my pillow and Benny is at the end of the bed with
his eyes sort of opened trying to watch the cartoons.
The Misadventures of Flapjack are on hehehe  They
were watching Garfield LOL.  Ok,  so that’s about all
that’s going on around here today.  I guess it’s time
for me to tell you what I tell you almost every week
and that is I wrote some more poems and haiku :).
Yep,  10 more poems with ALL OF THEM being
Christmas poems HoHoHo.  I also wrote 22 more
haiku for all of my haiku lovers out there with a few
of them about Christmas also hehehe.  I hope you
find one or two of either or both that you like.  Now,
it’s time for me to begin searching for that not so
great at hiding off switch,  but not before I wish you
a most wonderful weekend and a joyous Christmas
filled with many blessings.  I pray that your gifts are
sprinkled with God’s blessings and you thank Him
always.  Now,  where is that confounded off switch
hiding this week?  LOL he almost made it hehehe.
He was hiding inside my hot cocoa cup,  but slipped
and fell in making a splash.  It sort of gave you
away dude,  plus,  ya almost got drank hehehe.
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce
and Benny and Milo

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

The Snow of Time

With clouds of white
and sort of grey
the snow of time
gives its display.
While winters stage
is found so white
nearly every
day and night.
The snow of time
is counted true
with each wintery
daily view.
As snowflakes fall
in Christmas songs
the snow of time
is sing alongs.
Magical moments
are so fine
found as Christmas
the snow of time.

The Kiss of Christmas

While so many heartbeats
sound as a drum
there are still many
still found in a slum.
The kiss of Christmas
most surely can bring
life to ones sadness
and make them to sing.
Yet it needs us to
spread love and cheer
the kiss of Christmas
found so sincere.
Don’t let ones heartbeat
to wither away.
Show them what Christmas
can surely display.
The kiss of Christmas
from your beating heart
can help ones sadness
to surely depart.

Heavy Snow

A country drive
for photographs
brings alive
some paragraphs.
Stories written
from what’s seen
heavy snow
of winters dream.
Christmas lights
this country drive
through the snow
seem so alive.
They twinkle brightly
on my way
of heavy snow
through clouds of grey.
The seasons drive
is painted with
some heavy snow
a Christmas gift.
As the miles
are driven to
the heavy snow
displays its view.
White and wondrous
where I go
in Christmastime
the heavy snow.

Finding Santa

With eyes wide opened
ones search to see
old Santa Claus
in the sky Christmas eve.
They’re searching for his
magical sleigh
through Christmas Eve
to Christmas Day.
Trying to find Santa
and see if he’s real
searching through the night,
but magic conceals.
Them finding Santa
is each year a chore
to see if their gifts come
from him or a store.
Children with hopeful
watch and they wait
the time finding Santa
that they anticipate.
Sleep then comes quickly
with the sandman’s charm
and they awaken
to their Christmas alarm.
Them finding Santa
will just have to wait
for now there are presents
this wonderful date.

Leftover Christmas

Throughout the years
ones tend to forget
great things from Christmas
like a little marionette.
Maybe a toy truck
or a little girl dolly
come from old Santa Claus
so big and jolly.
That leftover Christmas
that still lives inside,
but we will often
just throw it aside.
Not letting joyful
of yesterdays years
to help you nowadays
with much lesser tears.
Find all those wonderful
times long ago
a leftover Christmas
with joy to and fro.
Don’t let the sadness
to fill up your view.
Let a leftover
Christmas shine through.

Footprints To Christmas

Winters own snowflakes
in northeastern skies
paint up the season
with winters reprise.
Footprints to Christmas
found in the snow
seem to head onwards
with Christmastimes flow.
Ones with their footsteps
walking along
making their footprints
singing some songs.
Songs about Jesus
and Santa Claus too
footprints to Christmas
become such a view.
If you go follow them
where all they went
footprints to Christmas
might leave your indent.
As you are following
you then are making
footprints to Christmas
with each step you’re taking.
So let those footsteps
that you make in time
show that of Christmas
a footprint design.

Soon We Will See

December doorways
have opened up wide
letting the joy of
Christmas inside.
Soon we will see
that wonderful day
that through Lord Jesus
shows us the way.
Each minute ticking
with hours to go
soon we will see
just maybe some snow.
Then as the season
of wintertime’s while
comes with its passion
of Christmastimes smile,
many will sing of
Lord Jesus God’s Son
of Whom we’ll see
when our lives are done.
Christmastime’s blessings
come with much joy
for soon we’ll see
that day to deploy.
Trees that are lit up
and glowing at night
soon we will see them
that wonderful sight.
The magic of Christmas
makes many hearts sing
of all the blessings
from Jesus The King.

Within Winter

The beginning of winter
sometimes only shows
how that it often
rains and it snows.
Within winter
there is such a day
that for so many
make troubles go away.
That day is Christmas
with its magical flair
that fills so many
with God’s love and care.
Yet within winter
there are ones without
not seeing Christmas
or knowing about.
They might of lost their
joy in the past
from such a time
of a shadowy cast.
Help those to find
that love front and center
that is from Christmas
that’s within winter.

The Season To Remember

The doorways to memories
live on in our hearts
as the season to remember
most surely imparts.
With so many viewpoints
from then unto now
the season to remember
is God to endow.
With Jesus our Savior
giving way through His life
the season to remember
is a way without strife.
Not allowing our hearts to
be swayed by ones hate
the season to remember
Gives Jesus through trait.
His love and compassion
that Christmas bestows
the season to remember
is pure love that grows.
Don’t let ones to change your
view in a way
the season to remember
that’s called Christmas Day.

When It’s Past

When the minutes
dusk to dawn
have just seemed to
move along
it leaves shadows
that we see
when it’s past
through history.
Christmas seasons
morning sun
brings a glimmer
of what’s done.
That is when we
need to change
what we’ve done
bad times again.
Letting Christmas
gleam and shine
in our hearts
a great design.
Let the days of
shadows cast
show the goodness
when it’s past.

Haiku
for Dec 20,  2014

With Christmas coming
many have their own ideals.
Mine are of Jesus.

Allowing a storm cloud
to lose your view of Jesus
means your faith is weak.

Our limitations
are often found in our minds
and not what is true.

Moments come and go,
but Jesus is forever
as then unto now.

Life brings conclusions
that we might not agree with,
but we must accept.

Allowing others
to sway your view on Christmas
could cost you your joy.

The many the few
are the connections in life
that we overlook.

So many footsteps
leave footprints of illusion
and not of the truth.

Knowing someone’s name
does not constitute knowing
who they really are.

Beyond our eyesight
is the perception we’ve missed
that might do us well.

When push comes to shove
some try a little harder,
but not when they should.

Many memories
come back as ghost to haunt us
when they are regrets.

Looking for stardom
could find you wishing for less
and be left alone.

Sometimes our hard times
are the best things to happen
for they teach us well.

The clinking of cans
gives notice to a trash bag
filled full of cans.

Spelunking in caves
gives room for some mysteries
found in the darkness.

Loss of perception
leaves you not knowing truly
what friend is closest.

As letters are formed
and connect into meanings
some words might be lost.

The challenge of strength
could find you playing the fool,
for they might be strong.

When today has passed
it becomes a memory
of what all we learned.

Throwing a snowball
needs someone with a good aim
and good packing snow.

As we leave today
we might find many regrets,
but the deed is done.
