Saturday's Wordzzle #44

Ten Word Challenge will be: When pigs have wings, Moonlight, Mystery, Tower of Babel, Butterflies, Bread and butter, Beef barley soup, Charley horse, Novelty, Cold shoulder

The story is always the same. You know it well. When man tries to build up himself and let his ego get in the way. Such is the story of the Tower of Babel. One of pride and selfishness, not to bring glory, but viewed as contemptuous by the Lord. This is human nature and we never get it. We always want what we can not have. Like chasing butterflies, we are always wanting but not willing to give. It is a mystery to me how the story never changes. It is as if we have an addiction to our own needs and wants. It would be a novelty for man to offer his beef barley soup and bread and butter to a hungry person. Instead, we offer a cold shoulder to even someone in pain with a Charley horse. We are blinded by our own selfish desires. Maybe when pigs have wings, and fly in the moonlight, then we will let go of ourselves and think of others first.

Mini Challenge: Software, Lottery, Newspaper, Mailman, Ringo Starr’s drum

It made the headlines in the newspaper that a software program had been designed to recreate Ringo Starr's drum playing style. How do you know this? Well, the mailman told me about it. He also said to make sure that I buy a lottery ticket. Do you do everything the mailman says to do? Well, yes? Why? The mailman is my husband and he knows everything that happens in this little town. Be sure to buy your lottery ticket.

Great message in the first one Pam!

I love the way you do reports rather than stories.

I didn't have time to play this week but had to stop by to read others and get my wordzzle fix!

First sermon I've seen from the words. Well done.
The second story has a cute ending.
You always do so well.

I like your message in the first one. I hope the mailman's suggestion pays off.

Well done in your homily wordzzle, though I am prone to think we aren't quite such a mean-spirited collective of souls. Would that all sermons were so short and concise, though. I loved your mailman story.

I think you pegged the human condition quite well. A very timely message given the season.

You have identified a tension in the human spirit.

I hope that we listen to our better angels whispering "giving is the best part of who you are."
