When Our Time Is Up


Hello my friends

I hope you had a very merry Christmas.  Judy and I did.
We have been watching Christmas movies every night :).
The boys seem to be able tell it’s Christmas. Benny got
out one of his Santa dolls from last Christmas and played
with it.  Why he picked that specific doll to pull out of the
toy box leaves a question in our minds.  Do they know
it’s Christmastime?  Judy and I took the boys over to
spend Christmas eve with us at Judy’s twin sisters house.
We had a blast.  Benny and Milo had quite a time as they
played with all of their cousins.   Trudy has 4 Yorkies and
Benny and Milo love to visit them :).  Benny loves it bit
more than Milo though being they are all much younger
than him.  Milo is 7 years older than Benny and a little
more than 7 years older than all of Trudy’s dogs.  So he’s
the elder of the bunch.  Although,  Benny and Milo act
as though they are brothers even if they are not from
the same breed and their ages are far apart.  I think we
could all learn something from dogs.  They have not an
ounce of prejudice.  Plus dogs are more forgiving than
we could ever think to be.  They don’t hold onto grudges.
Judy and I love our little boys.  They complete our home.
I know they are only here with us for a short time being
they don’t live as long as us,  but for the time that they
are with us they bring us joy and laughter.  Plus I firmly
believe that their is a place for them in Heaven so that
when our time is up and our fleshly bodies no longer
hold our souls within them,  we will see those lovingly
little toothy grins once again.  I guess it’s time for a
new topic huh.  Well,  I’m not gonna write much being
it is still Christmastime to me and I’m sort of taking
a vacation from writing so to say.  I didn’t write any
poems or haiku,  but I will be back once again next
Sunday/week starting off the new year with more of
my poetry,  haiku,  humor and thoughts.  I hope your
new year is filled with abundant blessings.  I’m fixing
to make me and the boys some dinner.  Judy will be
home late this evening as she is every Sunday.  I’m
sure that by then I will be hungry again being I’m not
going to fix me and the boys very much.  But then,  I
haven’t eaten today yet,  so I really need something
to eat.  The boys have dried dog food in their food
pans in the floor if they get hungry.  So,  I guess I’ll
take a little looksee back through this short little bit
that I’ve written and see if I can find a good word or
phrase that I can use for the title for a new little poem.
So I’m taking a short trip to that little place of my
recollection that I always like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE.  I think I found a decent title and now after
checking I see that it hasn’t been used yet,  but it is
being used today.  So here goes.

When Our Time Is Up

When the year has ended
and our past pictures show
we need to let our journeys
to show us where to go.
Learning from our mishaps
as each day moves along
our lives can be as lessons
teaching many when we’re gone.
Each year holds a pathway
with wrong ways and of right
that we carry with us
as a shadow found in sight.
Don’t allow your heartaches
of yesterdays unfold
leaving you with only
a life of bitter cold.
When the year has ended
and our time is just a thing
God can show us blessings
that we thought but just a dream.
For when our time is up then
and our bodies are worn out
Heaven holds a journey
that true love is all about.

I hope you enjoyed the poem and the pint size version
of my rambling hehehe.  As I said before,  I didn’t write
any poems or haiku this week,  but next week or as the
case will be hehehe next year,  I’ll be back with a bunch
to read.  I hope your New Year is a fruitful one with many
blessings.  Also I pray that your Christmas was a great
one filled with tons of joy.  So before I start looking for
that not so great at hiding Off Switch,  I want to wish you
a most wonderful week and Happy New Year.  Remember,
Jesus loves you and we do too.  Ok,  so where is that silly
off switch hiding this time?  Hehehe it looks like he might
need to go on a diet.   I can see him plain as day while
he attempts to hide behind my Mountain Dew can LOL.
Yes,  I need to lose some weight too hehehe.  I ate too
much,  but I sure enjoyed it :).   Anyways  Gotcha dude,
