Connected By Love


Hello my friends

It’s been getting cooler with every passing
day where we live. Yep, it’s looking like
summer has moved on. We brought Judy’s
flowers inside to keep them from freezing.
This evening Judy and I are going to take
our cameras with tripods outside to try to
get some good pictures of the moon. Yep,
it’s supposed to be spectacular. Beginning
at 6 PM the moon will be seen growing in
the sky to become a super moon and then
at 10 PM become a complete solar eclipse
and blood moon. We can’t wait, but wait
we must being we have no control over it.
Hopefully we’ll get some great photos of it.
Until then, we will just have to wait LOL.
Ok, next topic. Benny and Rocky have
been having fun as we took them out for
a field trip 4 days last week. They played
chase and wrestled in the grass and I got
a few great videos of them doing that and
both Judy and I got some great photos of
them. They also play chase in the house
running from one end of the house to the
other and then stop from time to time to
wrestle. Rocky will often let Benny win,
but we both know that Rocky can whip
Benny’s butt hehehe. We’re still having
a few problems with Rocky making potty
in the house, but it’s getting less and less
each day. From what I have learned, it
seems that Shih-tzu’s are the hardest to
train being that they’re one of the most
stubborn breeds of dogs. Potty training
is best done when they are just a month
or so old or younger. So getting anything
in his little tiny brain is gonna take time,
but I’m sure he will one day wise up LOL.
In the mean time, we keep an eye on him
as best that we can and keep paper towels
and pet stain and odor sprays handy at
all times hehehe. We love our little boys.
They’re like our children in a big way.
We haven’t heard anything from Judy’s
brother Ricky, but assuming he is OK.
Judy is going up to see him Wednesday,
being he has a doctors appointment in
Presque Isle that day. I reckon me and
the boys will hold down the fort and we
might even take a field trip while she’s
gone. Time will tell. I’m sure we will
find something to do 🙂 Mine and Judy’s
14th wedding anniversary is this coming
Friday Oct 2, 2015. Can you believe
she’s put up with me for 14 years LOL?
Yea, I know, hard to believe, but she
has hehehe 🙂 We’ve had our share of
bad days, but have had an abundance
of wonderful days. We’ve found that
we like many of the same things. Of
course nobody likes everything as the
same, for we all have our differences.
It’s learning to accept the differences
as what God made them to be. Though
many will make choices and try to put
them off as the way they are instead of
owning up to their bad choices. I have
made many bad choices and I have had
to pay the price for them, but today I
try to choose better my future and let
the past remain in the past as best that
I can. Of course even that at times is
a trial and a half LOL. That darned old
memory tends to tamper with what that
needs to be left alone. Judy and I have
found many blessed events to come into
our lives in forms of many things such
as wonderful photos that we’ve taken
that help us remember fantastic places
as well as awaking to the snow falling
down in the dawn of morning. It has
a magical feel to it, or at least it does
to us. Summer sunrises and sunsets
bring the warmth of God alive in our
hearts. Watching our little dogs play
and bounce around the house puts a
smile on our faces. There is so much
that we are thankful for that there is
no way I could possibly write it all
down in a few words. I’m still hoping
that my daughter and granddaughter
along with her boyfriend and his son
can make it up for Christmas. I told
Brian that they will need to bring up
some warm clothing. Not just Texas
jackets hehehe. Also to be prepared
to drive in the snow. It’s pretty much
a guaranty that there will be snow 🙂
It hasn’t missed a year yet at least
not in the almost 8 years that we’ve
lived up here LOL. Hopefully nothing
prevents them from coming. Right
now at 4:48 PM it’s 69 F degrees and
clear, so it should make for a great
viewing of the super moon. I might
wait to send this until we have gone
to take pictures of it, but maybe not.
If not, I will put a few of the pictures
in next weeks journal if in fact any of
the pictures come out good enough
to share 🙂 Judy and I both have a
tripod so both of us will be taking
pictures. I’m pretty sure that Benny
and Rocky will be outside with us
curious to what we’re looking at 🙂
My grandmother had a great 108th
birthday last Sunday. She has been
a wonderful grandmother and friend.
We’re connected by love. She knows
I love her and I know she loves me.
I will never forget all of the special
times we had together. Her and my
Pawpaw were like 2nd parents to me.
I miss all those days of long ago, but
they are alive inside my mind. I’m
sure that we will all meet again in
Heaven when that time comes to
be. For me, I’ll continue to do my
best to share the laughter and smiles
with others that my Pawpaw shared
with me. My grandmother always
had something good to eat and she
would often sit in the floor with me
and my cousin Melody as we would
play board games by the fireplace.
Judy and I are daily creating many
memories to share with our grand kids.
Our kids have all grown up and are
now with lives of their own, but we
hope that we are showing them that
love isn’t about money. It’s about
doing your best to move foreword
not letting bad times of yesterday
to ruin your future. Today’s a new
day and time for forgiveness for
the past, so to find true happiness.
Yes it is hard, but with God, all
things are possible. I’ve screwed
up many times in my past with my
decisions being I was young and
dumb, but I am trying my best to
move forward and not let the past
to destroy my future by reliving it
always. Let God help you to find
that place of forgiveness and not
just forgiving others, but that of
yourself. Now I believe it’s time
for me to begin my search 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 like to call RECOLLECT
VILLE. I think I found a decent
title just a little ways back in my
rambling. I hope I can write a few
words that make sense. Here goes.

Connected By Love

When life finds an ending
there’s time to begin
life through a heartbeat
that souls enter in.
Connected by love
with distance not found
ones are united
on God’s higher ground.
Peace is then feathered
and flying with grace
connected by love
to that Heavenly place.
Then everyone that’s
gone before you
will be there just smiling
with life found anew.
Connected by love
so many will find
life at the ending
with new peace of mind.
Heaven’s great valley
will open up wide
connected by love
as we go inside.
Then as the pathways
of others unite
connected by love
will then see the light.

Ok, there ya go. Yea, I know, not that
great hehehe. Oh well, it’ll have to do 🙂
It’s 5:30 PM and still 69 F degrees. That
was supposed to be the high for today and
I guess it held its mark LOL. I now have
Benny sleeping in the floor right beside me.
Rocky is sleeping behind Judy hehehehe.
I guess they wore each other out playing.
Their second wind should come in a little
while LOL. Judy is over there writing on
her Sci-fi novel. I’ve gotten a little behind
on editing it. I guess I need to try and get
caught up, but my right eye gets tired fast.
My left eye is useless due to a stroke, so
my right eye has to do all the work hehehe.
Oh well, I’ll get it done. I have a prayer
request for my good friend Brian Palmer.
He has cancer and they are doing all that
they can to get it, but prayers can most
surely do wonders. Now, I guess I need 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 2 of them
being sort of Christmassy 🙂 Also I wrote
22 more haiku for all of the haiku lovers
out there. ENJOY 🙂 So, have I forgotten
anything? Hmm, I can’t think of anything,
so I guess it’s time to start searching for
that not too elusive off switch, but not
before I wish you a wonderful weekend
or whatever’s left of it and a blessings
filled week. Remember, Jesus loves
you and we do too. Now, where are
ya hiding, ya little switch like varmint?
I see you. Attempting to hide behind
my mom and dad’s picture might have
worked if you hadn’t been peeking out
from behind it hehehe. Ya silly thing.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Now it’s on with the poems and haiku
10 and 22 hehehehehehehehehehehe 🙂

Yesterdays Blessings

Things gone unnoticed
as time ticks away
might be the moments
we notice today.
Yesterdays blessings
and answers to prayer
might be the minutes
we thought as unfair.
For many blessings
are often just seen
that of a nightmare
not as a dream.
Yesterdays blessings
will come when it’s best
as God reveals them
those times oh so blessed.
Yet our own viewpoints
might not see so clear
the best of yesterdays
blessings sincere.
Time has a way of
displaying the reasons
often much later
found in the seasons.
Yesterdays blessings
just might coincide
within our future
on a prayer driven ride.
So don’t let your heart to
fill up with sorrow,
because you might find
a better tomorrow.

The Moon Experience

Stars are twinkling
shining bright
with the moon
in dark of night.
The stage is set
for song and dance
the moon experience
with romance.
Every portion
of the night
displays scenes
with some moonlight.
The moon experience
comes in frame
sometimes with
a famous name.
A super moon,
full moon maybe blue.
is an experience
that we view.

A Prayerful Time

Those simple days
that now have passed
a prayerful time
is shadows casts.
Times remembered
joyful true
a prayerful time
was great to view.
Childhood ways
with innocent eyes
a prayerful time
is how time flies.
Moments of bliss
from frames of God
now have displayed
times applaud.
All grown up
from each land mine
lessons were learned
a prayerful time.

Heaven’s White Snowflakes

Snowflakes found falling
find places to land
creating viewpoints
of Heaven so grand.
Heavenly portions
float from the skies
landing in places
where much more applies.
Building a picture
for many to see
Heaven’s white snowflakes
are seen fabulously.
A dreamers dream
so fluffy to float
Heaven’s white snowflakes
are as a love note.
Heavenly blessings
with wintertime’s style
Heaven’s white snowflakes
will create a smile.

A Child’s Eyes

Thinking of Christmas
a child will explore
sweet thoughts of presents
when in a toy store.
Walking passed windows
with displays so nice
seen in a child’s eyes
are nary the price.
For they see Santa
at nighttime so deep
bringing them toys
when they’re fast asleep.
A child is believing
and not filled with doubt
for they perceive magic
what Santa’s about.
A child’s eyes sees hopeful
where we are so blind
so sometimes it’s best to
seek a child’s frame of mind.
Not letting doubtful
to just bring you down
a child’s eyes can help you
to remove that frown.
Find the Christmas joy
that you had one day
and let it to live on
in a magical way.

Invisible Flowers

Fragrant aromas
that you cannot see
display as flavors
to a small bumble bee.
Invisible flowers
that are not exposed
hidden by moments
that eyesight is closed.
Times in the darkness
their true smell empowers
seeming just like
invisible flowers.
Often in the daylight
their aroma might come
greatest with blossoms
up under the sun.
Yet many times though
the moment might be
invisible flowers
that you cannot see.

Creating Smiles

We can create them
with just but a gaze
as ones will see us
with curved up displays.
Smiles maybe forced,
but might turn out true
when in reflections
you see smile at you.
A mirror reflects back
but has no perception
of what that’s false
a smile of deception.
So creating smiles
can be done when at home
looking in the mirror
when you’re all alone.
Then as you head out,
that smile you display
just might become true
in a wonderful way.
And when people see it
they might find their styles
learning their own way of
creating smiles.

Disasters Recipe

Allowing passed days
of turmoil and pain
to live forever
in all you attain
is disasters recipe
with time to explode
carrying baggage
on down the road.
Yesterday is gone
so don’t hold so tight
to things you have done
that did not go right.
Learn from disasters
to not repeat them,
make them as lessons
to help you to swim.
An ocean of time
can make you a fool
if you let passed days
into today’s pool.
Remember the good times
and learn from the bad
and don’t let disasters
to be all you’ve had.
For now is a journey
to help you to see
lessons to learn
from disasters recipe.

The Gift Of Life

God with His greatness
created you and I
to share and be thankful
until the day we die.
But so many people
live only with hate
and the gift of life
is not in their trait.
God gave us wonders
as a sky up above,
a fantastic painting
that’s filled full of love.
He gave us the flowers
and trees oh so tall
with leaves of green
that change in the fall.
There’s so many things
that we fill full of strife
which really should display
the gift of life.

Wonderful Secrets

Looking through visions
of timeless recalls
wonderful secrets
are like bouncing balls.
Taking on lifestyles
of their own display
wonderful secrets
are found day to day.
Many with children
seeking delight
of Santa’s sleigh bells
heard in the night.
Wonderful secrets
of sugarplum fairies
bringing them dreams
of Christmas so merry.
Christmas Eve comes
with them counting sheep,
Santa Claus comes
when they’re fast asleep.

for Sept 25, 2015

Mornings of sorrow
can be changed into a smile
if you so desire.

Left handed people
in a right handed cosmos
can change perception.

The signs found on walls
that have anger upon them
might just be old news.

Counting stars at night
brings sleep into your eyesight
as many are there.

Beyond what we see
could be a different view
that we know not of.

Perceiving a smell,
might send you the wrong idea
if near sulfur plants.

Written deception
that’s found in a newspaper
can create scandals.

Belonging to now
allows yesterday to rest,
for it has moved on.

Making up stories
about someone you don’t like
will come back to haunt.

Lost in a whirlwind
our minds might one day become,
due to lack of sleep.

When choosing a friend
look passed what your eyes can see
and look deep within.

Find time to relax
when you have done all you can
and then try again.

Selecting moments
needs knowledge of the moments
before selecting.

Dividing people
due to racial perception
shows how dumb ones are.

Religion argued
is not making God happy,
for we’re His children.

The worriers face
holds lines that display patterns
as their recordings.

Flowers of summer
will soon wither and pass on
if not taken in.

Stuck with a shadow
that yesterday put on you
needs you to change it.

Too tight the minutes
gives no room for any growth,
for growth needs time.

Our childhood ventures
can still live on in our minds
when we are adults.

Jumbled emotions
can come from too much hurry
and no time to think.

The sunrise canvass
is painted with God’s fingers
and Heavenly paint.
