123 Meme

I've been tagged to do a fun little "meme". I was tagged by Alan Knox - - I recently discovered his writing on the Church, and have thoroughly enjoyed it.

I've seen these "meme's" from time to time and had a general idea of what they are, but I wanted to look the word up anyway. It was not in our dictionary, but I found it online. For those as clueless as me, here's a link!

Here are the rules for this one:
  • Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more (no cheating!)
  • Find page 123
  • Find the first five sentences
  • Post the next three sentences
  • Tag five people
Here's the great part. The closest books to me are on my night stand . . . a stack of 7. And the one on top is my Bible! (boy, didn't that work out just right for this pastor's wife!!!) Page 123 is the middle of Exodus 20. After the first five sentences, I begin with verse 18 and type the next three.

All the people perceived the thunder and the lightning flashes and the sound of the trumpet and the mountain smoking; and when the people saw it, they trembled and stood at a distance. Then they said to Moses, "Speak to us yourself and we will listen; but let not God speak to us, or we will die." Moses said to the people, "Do not be afraid; for God has come in order to test you, and in order that the fear of Him may remain with you, so that you may not sin."
From the one Book in which any 3 sentences speak volumes!!

Okay, now for the really fun part, I get to tag five. So here's the list: Laura, Clay, Sacarii, Harriette, Jerry & Jana, and Peter. (I've learned by this exercise that I need to "introduce myself" to some authors of blogs I like to read, and yes I can count . . . but as I was trying to come up with five, seven came to mind.)

If you were tagged from the above list and want to do this, please leave a comment so it will be easy to click on your name and read your post.

And now it's time for . . . household preparations for the watching of the Super Bowl!

One more: Jessica, your blog is private so tagging you this way wouldn't really work . . . but consider yourself tagged, anyway! I know you're an avid reader and it would be fun to see what your closest page 123 says.

OK, friend. My first 'meme' in your honor. It is sad that I don't have more blogging buddies. I love to read many, many blogs ... but often fail to comment, bridge the gap and ignite a friendship. Nonetheless, here it is.

Dear Kerri,

Thank you for the tag! :)

I'll definitely be doing it, but probably at a later date as I've already got some things lined up in the next few days.

I do hope that's alright.

God bless, and Shalom!

God's blessings to you and, most definitely, Shalom!
