Now that I’ve found this new word, lexophilia, I’m insatiable as you can see:
How does Moses make tea? Hebrews it.
I changed my iPod’s name to Titanic. It’s syncing now.
A girl said she recognized me from the vegetarian club but I’d never met herbivore.
I did a theatrical performance about puns. It was a play on words.
What about the cross-eyed teacher who lost her job because she couldn’t control her pupils.
And then there’s the guy who got a job at a bakery because he kneaded dough.
And the man who dropped out of communism class because of lousy Marx.
Velcro – what a ripoff!
Broken pencils are pointless.
Don’t worry about old age; it doesn’t last.
That’s all for today, folks.
In case you’re not familiar with the word lexophilia here is an explanation I found online:
“Lexophile” is a word used to describe those who have a love for words, especially those set in a new framework.
“You can tune a piano, but you can’t tuna fish”, or “To write with a broken pencil is pointless.”
Here are a few other examples:
Venison for dinner again? Oh deer!
A cartoonist was found dead in his home. The details are sketchy.
I tried to catch some fog but I mist.
Jokes about German sausage are the wurst.
The guy who’s addicted to brake fluid says he can stop at any time.
I stayed up all night to see where the sun went, and then it dawned on me.
There’s more where these came from. Stay tuned.
Breathe on us breath of God as we welcome your Holy Spirit into our hearts.
Make us aware that talking about you is not the same as talking to you. Help us to do both.
Help us to overcome the obstacles that prevent us from enjoying a relationship with you.
Help us to trust you with the problems we face and the decisions we make.
When we are depressed and anxious help us to feel your love, peace, and presence.
When we lose our sense of compassion, remind us of your compassion for us.
Make us humble enough to know that without you we are incomplete.
Remind us to pray for one another that you would replace our grief with peace, our sickness with healing, our poverty with prosperity, and our self centeredness with thoughts of others.
Grant us the grace to live this day in your strength. Amen.
To follow up on last Wednesday’s blog, I found another angel song that touched me; and also another scripture about angels. I’m so happy to find my angels again. Happy Saturday.
Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. Revelation 5:11
Can’t you just hear these cygnets saying, “Hey Mom, we’ve got your back.” Happy Thursday.
Music can have a healing and comforting effect when life serves up unpalatable portions of insomnia, depression, anxiety, health issues, and other problems that rob us of a peaceful and fulfilling life.
Here is one of my favorite songs that brings comfort when any of the above threaten my well-being.
Heavenly Father, thank you for hearing our prayer. Help us to be still and know that you are God.
We pray that you will help us to concentrate on our faith instead of our fears, on our triumphs instead of our troubles and on your power instead of our problems.
Help us to see our shortcomings and overcome them.
Show us that when we are unkind, inconsiderate or unthinking, impatient, indifferent or disrespectful, we hurt others.
Remind us that forgiveness is a prerequisite to peace.
In the decisions we face daily grant us the wisdom of Solomon.
For the times we are easily provoked grant us the patience of Job.
When we are tempted to doubt your promises, God, grant us the faith of Mary.
We pray for world peace, sound governments, the end of terrorism of every kind, and the prevention of dread diseases.
We pray that you will help us become the people you want us to be.
Lord, hear our prayer. Amen.
