Book Meme

My friend, Lynn, tagged me for this book meme.

The rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages.)
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.

I have to admit that I have an entire book shelf next to me, so I was able to be a bit selective. The book I chose was Now and Not Yet: Making Sense of Single Life in the Twenty-First Century by Jennifer A. Marshall. (Jen is actually a friend from church and this is her first book. It's excellent for those that are single as well as for anyone who knows and loves someone who is single.)

Sentences 5-7 on page 123 read as follows:
"The assurance of a consistent ultimate calling helps us keep our bearings no matter how erratic the seasons may be. If a false spring blooms, understanding our circumstances as a part of our callings prevents us from turning frigid toward life, toward men, toward God. There is no "calling without a Caller," says Os Guinness, author of The Call."

You go, Jen.

I will now tag anyone that cares to participate. Just leave me a comment, so I can check out your results!

Thanks for participating. Good publicity for Jen too, seeing as you have such a broad following. :)

The nearest book was a Thesaurus so I reached a little further to my current fiction reading: As Sure As The Dawn, by Francine Rivers. It's the 3rd book in her Mark of the Lion series. I STRONGLY recommend this series!!!
Pg.123, sentence 5-7:
"I'm not your brother, boy. And if you wake me again, I swear I'll break every bone in your hand." Bartimaeus withdrew. Artretes pulled the heavy blanket over his head, blotting out the starlight and cold wind.
