Never Give Up


Hello my friends

It’s been a weird passed week.  Our car door
on the passenger side has messed up and now
we can only open it from the inside.  The same
thing happened to the drivers side door a few
years ago and it cost near or more than 700
dollars to fix it,  so we know what we’re giving
ourselves for Christmas LOL, car repair being
I’ve still gotta get the front brakes done and I
am fairly sure that will cost pert near the same
as the door.  Oh well,  Life goes on.  If it were
not for things like that,  we might think we had
died and gone to Heaven hehehe.  So, what else
is going on around this place?  Well,  Benny’s
been hobbling along limping on his left paw.
Judy did a little hair cutting on him yesterday
and found that his claws had gotten curled and
were jabbing his paw,  so she clipped them.  He
is getting around great now.  Judy to the rescue.
She did all that while I wrote my haiku for this
week.  I think she’s in the bedroom now giving
Rocky a haircut.  Though he is a bit more shall
I say difficult LOL.  I expect her to call me any
time now needing my help to hold him,  but we
shall see.  It’s 24 F degrees right now at 6 PM.
It’s supposed to get down to 12 F degrees by
Monday morning.  Nearing the time to start
letting the hot water dribble to keep it from
freezing 🙂  Yep,   as long as there is a small
dribble of hot water it prevents the water from
freezing,  being hot water will be the first to
freeze due to temperature change.  Yes I know
it doesn’t seem right,  but trust me I have seen
it happen.  Anyways,  as far as picture taking,
I did none this passed week,  due to it getting
dark so early and us not getting out and about
until after 4 PM which by then it’s getting dark.
This week we have to get out earlier to go and
get an estimate on the car door repair and pay
our bills.  So,  I might get a few pictures then 🙂
This time though I might just put some winters
of past in the stationery or use an old stationery
for this week 🙂  It’s supposed to snow a little
tomorrow then rain a bit,  so I hope the roads
aren’t too bad,  otherwise we might have to
wait till Tuesday when it has passed over us.
We do need to pay our electric bill and our
rent.  Oh well,  It’ll get done!  Hmm,  Rocky
must be letting Judy cut his hair without too
much of a fuss.  She hasn’t called me to help
her yet.  I just went in to check and she said
she took a break.  She said it’s going to take a
few efforts to get Rocky all done.  I had kind
of thought that might happen.  LOL Judy just
now came in here and said she let Rocky out
and now he doesn’t want to come back in.  I
said when he gets too cold,  we’ll hear him as
he barks saying OK,  I give hehehe.  He hates
having his hair cut,  but after it’s done he’s
always happy and feeling better.  Both of the
boys hair grows fast,  but I think Rocky’s
grows the fastest and they do not shed.  They
are both Hypoallergenic,  but it means that
we have to cut their hair often or as often
as we are able.  We will often switch hit on
the boys taking turns and sometimes do them
both at the same time with her on one and
me on the other,  but she knew I needed to
get this written so she did the honors.  Isn’t
she sweet :).  I went a little bit ago to have
Rocky come in and he wasn’t gonna hehehe,
but then I said,  ya wanna treat and he came
flying though that doggy door LOL.  I then
opened the computer room door where Judy
was and said I had to bribe him to come in
as he came running up to her waiting for a
treat hehehe.  She said I told him we were
taking a break,  but I said I do not believe
he knew what you meant hehehe,  but he
most assuredly knows what a treat is LOL.
So now both of the boys are lying in the
floor in-between Judy and I.  I turned on
the radiator heater to warm up the room
a little bit.  Yep,  we’re all just huddling in
here as it’s the warmest room in the house.
God is still watching over us as are many
angels and friendly spirits.  We are so very
thankful for Your love and guidance that
You give often without our knowledge and
we know You will never give up on us Lord.
Thank You for never changing or wavering
in Your ways.  Please keep Your hands over
us as well as our family and friends.  AMEN.
I believe it’s now time to be reading back
over 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 little place of my
recollection that I seem always like to call
RECOLLECT VILLE.  Well it seems that
I may have stumbled upon a fairly decent
title just a few lines back and now after
checking I see that I have not used it yet,
so used it shall be.  Here goes…

Never Give Up

Look for the life,
look for the ways
to better your time
within future days.
Don’t let sadness
to win over you,
because the times
may start anew.
What once was sad
may now be good
as life changes in
our neighborhood.
Stop with the hole
that you now dig,
hold your head up
and smile real big.
Answers are there
to move you along
within a heartbeat
sung as a song.
Look up to Heaven
and find God’s cup
to drink His love
and never give up.

Well,  there ya go.  I hope you liked the poem
and maybe even a bit of my rambling hehehe.
I’ve decided to use one of last years stationery
for this week.  It’s of near the same time of the
year,  but just a year back in time LOL.  Many
of you might of never seen it and others might
not even know it, if I hadn’t of told you hehehe.
So,  enjoy.  I think I have told you all that there
is to tell other than what I tell you every week
and that is,  I’ve written some more poems and
haiku.  Yep,  10 more poems and 22 more haiku
for all of the haiku lovers out there.  I hope you
can find 1 or 2 of either or both that you like 🙂
With that said,  I do believe it’s time for me to
begin my search for that silly hardly elusive off
switch,  but not before I wish you all a blessings
filled week.  Remember,  Jesus loves you and we
do too.  Now,  where can that ornery off switch
be trying to hide this time?  LOL I didn’t even
have to look long,  for when I looked over at
my camera I saw it trying to take a selfie LOL.
Ya gotta turn it on first and then be in front not
behind the camera you silly thing hehehehehe.
Why take a selfie anyhow.  You look just like
most of the other off switches.  Deal with it 🙂
Gotcha,  see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill,  Judy,  Benny,  Rocky
and the spirit of Milo Pearce

Sweet Memories

Time has a way
of creating a place
seeming as echoes
of someone’s face.
Moments magnify
time’s perception
as sweet memories
a scene’s reflection.
It may seem alive
this wonderful view
memories of then
that seem as anew.
The time may show
a discarded phase
that only lives on
in pictured arrays
The sweetness finds
a tug at the heart
memorized times
a true work of art.
There may be times
shadows and trees
filled with faces of
sweet memories.

Seems a Mirage

So many things
remembered so well
may seem an illusion
with stories to tell.
Mindful mirages
of deepest thoughts
create and elate us
in times far across.
A light so bright
might form a design
that seems a mirage
of a distant time.
It might truly be
a lighthouse in day
not shining bright
a wondrous array.
It might await
a night’s montage,
but now’s a moment
that seems a mirage.

Sunbeams Shine

Gazing at a passage
that trees have outlined
I see bright sunbeams
that form in my mind.
They become glimmers
of heartbeats of gold
found as a wonderland
for eyes to behold.
Seeing living magic
as it unleashes views
within the sunbeams
that moments infuse.
Scented that of nature
as a breath to breathe
the sunbeams shine on
all the distant trees.
Becoming reflections
of a heartbeat’s dream
time creates passages
as sunbeam scenes.
Let them to become
as a moment to dine
filling your heart with
a sunbeams shine.

Mirror Images

What’s seen today
might only be time
and not a moment
you need to find.
Yet many minutes
will surely portray
the mirror images
of yet another day.
Reflections desires
of a time or place
become the echoes
of God’s embrace.
The love He gives
is reflected sight
shining upon us
as heavenly light.
Places encountered
with magical glows
as mirror images
of highs and lows.
Blessings of time
that came unto be
as gifts from God
to you and to me.
Seasons lifetimes
become pure gold
as mirror images
of young unto old.

Dreaming a Dream

Many things seen
may only be sights
scenes such as time
in days and nights.
Maybe of a pasture
with cattle grazing
dreaming a dream
that is so amazing.
Amidst a pathway
where seasons flow
dreams may come
and put on a show.
Allow the moments
to surely compile
a magical dream
to give you a smile.
Open your heart
and let in a scene
found as perfection
dreaming a dream.

Life Has Begun

Wants of a moment
scents of the sea
create the highlights
of time’s history.
An ocean’s emotion
is echoes of waves
heard as a blessing
of fun filled days.
Stood upon a beach
watching a sunrise
becomes a memoir
with joyful eyes.
It’s a heavenly time
that opens a door
allowing reflections
to live forevermore.
Scenes come to life
as a morning fire
with the sun rising
higher and higher.
Light becomes seen
as a morning sun
blessings revealing
what life has begun.

Morning’s Song

Words of the ocean
may flow in the breeze
songs of destinations
sung with such ease.
The morning awakens
as the ocean sings true
songs of the memories
that one day were new.
Sounds of the crashing
waves billows roar
 as a morning’s song
that oh so many adore.
Scenes become golden
as sights and sounds
when morning awakens
memoirs to be found.
Written in the sands
of a timeless adventure
a bright morning’s sun
is with a scenic allure.
It might be a dream
that’s never come true,
but a time you recall
that lives within you.
Look for the sunshine
and try to sing along
no matter the place
in a morning’s song.

Rails of Destiny

Fuel of emotion
creates a path
that of a journey
maybe too fast.
We are the rails
that time is upon
with momentum
dusk unto dawn.
Time comes alive
in many details
often as scenes
our life exhales.
A breath of life
in a scenic array
becomes the rails
so many portray.
Within thoughts
our lives survive
in the memories
we keep alive.
Unloading scenes
onto time’s door
giving a pathway
a time to explore.
Dust might settle
upon a memory
giving hope for
rails of destiny.

Scenic Divine

A ground of white
with snowy flavors
becomes as gold
a moment savors.
The scenes of time
that come in view
might have a place
to live within you.
Heart felt pictures
of our memories
live on so scenic
as wishful seas.
A glimpse of life
becomes as a glow
so scenic divine
as white as snow.
Heaven’s beauty
snowflakes become
as a sight of light
of Jesus God’s son.
Love as heartbeats
becoming a glance
a time and place
of a wintery dance.
Found in a dream
a moment in time
a place so sweet
that’s scenic divine.

Walking in Peace

Breathing a breath
of a passing phase
brings back times
of distant days.
Leaving footprints
within living sand
you may find God
holding your hand.
Walking in storms
of now and then
peace can become
as a gentle wind.
Just like a breeze
of an ocean array
walking in peace
can brighten a day.
Heavenly spirits
will come to you
applying blessings
to start then anew.
Leave the worry
and seek a release
in God’s blessings
walking in peace.

for Dec 4,  2021

Time is a number
that magnifies the moments
giving them essence.

Losing arguments
can be a very good thing
giving you lessons.

Now is a turnstile
with pathways to encounter
that are good and bad.

A trial by fire
might burn up chances to learn
so take care your stride.

Leaning into time
you might find that it buckles
and leaves you to fall.

Moments come crashing
as the waves that come ashore
leaving sediment.

Within our travels
we might discover lifestyles
resembling our own.

Looking to the sky
you can often see the stars
as they speak to you

The lines on a face
may tell of someone’s sadness
or of their laughter.

No belief in ghost
does not make them go away,
for yet they are fact.

Loaning a heartbeat
to ones that are with sadness
can help theirs to shine.

Shimmering waters
in a river of today
might have some ripples.

Traveling aspects
as many with delusions
might one day find truth.

Life is like bubbles
that many seek with their greed
and sometimes are popped.

Many opinions
are but only ones egos
seeking to prove wrong.

Starlight of nighttime
holds dreams to be realized
and hope to live on.

Tomorrow is found
when today is exhausted
leaving memories.

Fields of illusions
can become reality
and ruin our life.

Many of our minds
will never ever connect
due to loose wires.

Youth is a vision
that we lose as years pass by
if we allow it.

Within a heartbreak
holds chances for a new dream
to be awakened.

Leaning too loosely
over the steep cliffs of time
you might fall over.
