A Little Shove


Hello my friends

How’s the weather down your way? It’s 7F degrees
right now at 5:15 PM. Not too awful bad. Though
it might be a tad hard to write being Benny is in one
of his moods hehehe. He wants to play and barking
at me. Now he’s in the bedroom playing with one of
his squeaky toys. Now he’s barking for Milo or one
of us to come and play with him in the bedroom LOL.
Oh well, Judy said she was thinking about going back
to bed and so she will have the honors of dealing with
fussbudget hehehe. It’s real lively around here today
and Milo don’t want to have any part of it hehehehe.
Judy just went in there and said Benny is throwing
the pillows and sheets off of the bed LOL. I had to
get a late start on writing being Judy and I watched
Christmas movies up until about 8 or 9 this morning.
Yeppers, it was the Hallmark channel all night long.
I fixed Benny and Milo their dinner and then fixed
Judy and I some waffles and sausage for our dinner
aka breakfast hehehe. The boys were in a loving
mood licking me all over the place to get me up
and so I got up and began the day. I’m still pretty
tired as is Judy, for she said that she’s going back
to bed hehehe. Oh well, it’s not like we have any
pressing engagements 🙂 Nope, here at the old
Pearce’s Place it’s pretty laid back. Of course
not in our dogs eyes. It seems that when we lay
down kicks in a play mode with the boys hehehe.
Benny and Milo are now running back and forth
from the front door through the bedroom to this
room. They sound like little tiny horses galloping
at a moderate speed hehehe. We love those boys.
Well, my glass just became empty of chocolate
milk. Looks like I’ll either have to get a Yoohoo
or a Sprite. I got a Yoohoo and the boys followed
me back in here thinking the Yoohoo was for them.
LOL go away!!!! Ok, now they’ve gone back to
their playing in the other room. Oopsy, I forgot
to take the syrup bottle back into the kitchen hehe.
Oh well, I’ll take it on my next trip. In the mean
time onwards with the journal. It’s white outside
still and Benny and Milo are loving it. We might
get a tad more snow beginning tomorrow evening.
God only knows how much we will get. I’m sure
we will get a few inches though if not more. I’m
hoping for more. We shall see! Well the boys
have worn themselves out and are now lying in
the bedroom floor facing each other. We’ve
been taking a few more Christmas pictures of
us, the boys and our Christmas tree HoHoHo.
I’ll have to do some sorting the figure out which
ones are best for my stationery. I think I hear
the boys coming. Hehehe they wanted a treat.
I gave em a chewy bone to keep them busy LOL.
That should tide them over for a while hehehe.
Those two boys are definitely a gift from God.
I couldn’t imagine them not being here. It fills
like they have been here all of the while, but
in reality Benny has only been with us since
March 10 and Milo has only been here since
October 14. Yeppers, they have became a
large part of our lives. They love to snuggle
with Judy and I in bed. Although it does get
a tad crowded time to time and I have to give
a little shove to move em over LOL. This
holiday season will be one of our best ones.
We’ve found pure joy in these two dogs from
Heaven. God knows exactly what we need.
maybe not what we want, but what we need.
This Christmas season let God show you the
gifts of life and chances for a better day as
time moves forwards. I know you might be
suffering from hardships and turmoil, but
they will make a better person out of you.
Don’t let a moment to ruin a lifetime, for
a moment will pass. Heaven is just a prayer
away. Now, I think it’s time for me to be
taking my little venture back through all that
I’ve written here to see if I can find a good
word or phrase that might work well 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 of found a good title, but the
proof is in the pudding as they all say hehe.
Now let’s see if I can put any good thoughts
together using it hehehe. Here goes!!!!!!!!!!!!

A Little Shove

Minutes tick on
snowflakes fall
times of winter
cover all.
Little children
with each sled
a little shove
away they’ve sped.
Often people
need that too
a little shove of
to and fro
in the life of
troubled snow.
God sends angels
daily found
to be shoves
to help around.
Maybe friends
of then and there
are the shoves
of answered prayer.
So if you are
needing love
look for Lord God’s
little shove.
A little shove
to help succeed
might be all
you really need.

Ok hehehe there ya go. You’re not gonna believe
this but titles are harder for me to come up with
than writing a poem LOL. I’ve written well over
7000 poems and new titles are getting scarce hehe.
Hehehe believe or not, amidst all of them poems
are almost 600 Christmas poems HoHoHo hehe.
Yeppers, I’ve been writing for many a decade.
Hehehe when kids see me at Walmart they think
I’m Santa, being I have that look about me hehe.
LOL who knows, HoHoHo I might be hehehehe.
Judy and I love Christmas. It’s our favorite time
of year just as it was with my family growing up.
I remember going over to my cousins house and
Uncle Wayne dressing up as Santa Claus as he
brought in a big bag of presents. Those are the
days I remember best as also my many years of
delivering Christmas trees to those that could
not afford one. I would go out in the woods and
cut down a few and put em in my car and tarry
out to deliver. I didn’t want anyone to have to
celebrate Christmas without a Christmas tree.
I also made little paper ornaments to put on
their trees. Not many knew of what I did for
Christmas. Not even my own parents. I kept
that part of my life a secret except from a few.
This Christmas season, do something nice for
someone without expecting anything in return
and you will be blessed. Let God’s love shine
through your life. Ok, so I guess it’s time for
me to begin my search for that old off switch,
but not before I wish you all a most joyful and
glorious week. Remember, Jesus loves you
and we do too. Now to find that off switch.
Found it hiding behind the syrup bottle that
never made it back into the kitchen hehehehe.
Gotcha, see ya CLICK zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

God bless from Bill and Judy Pearce

I’m putting out a prayer request for all the families
from the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary school
in Connecticut. I know those children will have that
nightmare in their dreams for years to come. Please
pray for all of those…..God bless

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

Timelines Array

Yesterdays minutes
might seem as to show
timelines of seconds
that are found in snow.
Now might seem cloudy
in timelines array,
but minutes give us
a times better day.
Moments forgotten
or maybe impaired
might be the seasons
that had really cared.
Yesterdays timelines
painted as cynic
might leave regretful
found deep within it.
So use the timelines
of now and today
to make much better
to come from the gray.
Timelines we’ve be through
that now does perceive
need to be lessons
to now interweave.
Found as the moments
are making today
now can show lessons
in a timelines array.

Lives We’ve Seen

Oceans of waves
roll on as a dream
with all the people
that we’ve daily seen.
Many with patterns
found as unique
displayed as oceans
found really deep.
The lives we’ve seen
might come so quick
then be shadows
that timeframes depict
Thresholds of time
might come as despair
as many lives
are treated unfair.
Let not the pathways
lives have portrayed
become as moments
found just to fade.

Christmas Pictures

Scenes hung nicely
for the season
show that Jesus
is the reason.
Christmas pictures
found so great
display things
so wide awake.
Sleigh bells ringing
in the night
are the visions
ones delight.
Christmas pictures
here and there
show the beauty
of God’s care.
Scenes depicting
Christmas trees
on some ships
in deepest seas.
Many different
pictures show
some of green
and some with snow.
Christmas pictures
bring together
scenes of love
of then forever.

Sentimental Journey

Found in our footsteps
timeframes bestow
a sentimental journey
wherever we go.
Sentimental moments
connecting thereto
pathways to Christmas
found in our view.
Sentimental doorways
that we have seen
right now might find
as just but a dream.
A sentimental journey
that time has begun
might be the moments
of a bright shining sun.
Find all the blessings
Lord God’s given free
and then enjoy
the paths history.

Nearer To Christmas

The clock is now ticking
as time moves along
while ones are singing
a great Christmas song.
Nearer to Christmas
the moments are showing
as often outside
it just might be snowing.
The seasonal blessings
which come now at glance
nearer to Christmas
brings song and dance.
Holly for the doorways
and lights thereunto
nearer to Christmas
gives us a view.
Scenes all decorated
with such a sight
that of the seasonal
wondrous delight.
A little manger scene,
Jesus within
shows us how Christmas
did then begin.
Then so mesmerizing
music is heard
that of Silent Night
word after word.
Songs that are playing
on the radio
Jingle Bells Christmas
in fluffy white snow.
Find all the blessings
as Christmastime comes
maybe through scenes
of a drummer who drums.
Seek for the method
of which you can share
and then find Christmas
that none can compare.

Jumping in Snow

When Christmas comes
it gives ones a glow
that which is often
jumping in snow.
Building up snowmen
jolly and tall
with round bellies
so they’ll never fall.
Jumping in snow
makes many feel young
along with the songs
of Christmas they’ve sung.
Letting their inner
child to display
helps them to find
a great Christmas day.
While jumping in snow
you thought as too old,
you might just find
a blessing unfold.
Rhythms of childlike
centuries seen
might make your Christmas
just like a dream.

Winters Revival

As Christmas comes
it brings us a sight
winters revival
found day and night.
Scenery’s changing
as they unfold
often with white snow
fluffy and cold.
Winters revival
comes as a page
turned in a book found
Christmas on stage.
Minutes will pass on
now to another
while we are singing
child, father, mother.
Winters revival
shows us a hue
white as the Heavens
clouds passing through.
Christmastimes pages
turn as a book
giving us beauty
often mistook.
Look now at Christmas
and see what is there
given from Lord God
and filled with prayer.

Believing in Santa

A child sees a dream
of hopeful desire
believing in Santa
in all his entire.
That is so often
what brings us true life
found as a blessing
husband and wife.
Believing is harmless
for it does good
making ones do what
they really should.
Looking for goodness
in what that’s done
believing in Santa
through God’s Own Son.
It’s about giving
and showing you care
while being answers
to someone’s prayer.
Let not your old age
to take away
believing in Santa
Christmastimes day.

I Might Be Mistaken

I might make mistakes
from time and agin,
but lessons still come from
where that I’ve been.
I might be mistaken
as each page is turned,
but I will find then
some lessons discerned.
We all make mistakes
and some more than others
as many leave it to
sisters and brothers.
Blaming mistakes on
everybody else
leaves you to find
the lies of yourself.
You might be mistaken
the very same as me,
so take note and learn
from your history.
I might be mistaken
about all of this,
but the fact then remains
you might be amiss.

Look Now and See

Try now to look now
and see what is there
found now as Christmastime’s
filled full of prayer.
Look now at all that
you have now so fine
and then be grateful
for great Christmastime.
Let not your wanna
to fill up your stride.
Look now and see now
Lord Jesus inside.
Find every blessing
that you don’t deserve
and then be grateful
for God’s grading curve.
So many blessings
are there every day,
yet we will often
not look in that way.
Look now and see now
what Christmas bestows
and let it to be as
a seedling that grows.
Search for that feeling
that Christmastime gives.
It’s in the blessing
that Jesus Christ lives.

for Dec 15, 2012

Times might show torment,
but Heaven makes peace of it
as time moves forward.

Life is a seedling
needing water, Son and love
to help it to grow.

Wintertime’s pages
turn as the winds blow briskly
while snowflakes will fall.

An evergreens leaves
hold fast and never will change
even with snow on them.

Onlooking people
lose track of what is with them
and miss the beauty.

Wisdom of ages
often comes from ignorance
that times had shown them.

Losing ones temper
leaves them open to regret
what they’ve done and said.

Living above you
finds sorrow in the pockets
as ones come collect.

In but a moment
your life will have moved forwards
and you might miss it.

Imagining yourself
as what that you’re not really,
might unfold sadness.

Finding a true smile
might be one come from a child
with joy of Christmas.

Belief in a ghost
gives it its recognition
to be remembered.

Hearing the wind blow
gives the impression of cold
found in wintertime.

Love is a value
that many will misconceive
as emptiness thrives.

Looking for true love
needs to be done through Jesus
and whom He displays.

Often our judgment
is a roller coaster ride
swaying in the breeze.

Lessons are troubles
that come for us to resolve
often not so great.

Painting a smile on
leaves a lie under the paint,
so try to smile true.

Look for the good times
that life as exposed to you
and remember them.

Today is just time
that’s often just misconceived
within the wrong light.

With every heartbeat
there is a chance for changing,
for there is still breath.

Simply belonging
does not give ones happiness.
Be happy with you.
