Weird Theme Meme


The rules are: Pass it on to five other bloggers, and tell them to open the nearest book to page 56. Write out the fifth sentence on that page, and also the next two to five sentences. The CLOSEST BOOK, NOT YOUR FAVORITE, OR MOST INTELLECTUAL!

My entry:

"After Moses came down from Mount Sinai, calling on God became an earmark of his people's successes. The patriarch spotlighted this most dramatically in his farewell address: "What other nation is so great as to have their gods near them the way the Lord our God is near us whenever we pray to Him?" (Deut. 4:7). The other nations may have had better chariots, better weaponry, but that wouldn't matter in the end. They didn't have what Israel had: a God who would respond when they called Him. And note that there was no promised help from God if Israel ceased calling out to Him. Only defeat and humiliation would follow."

Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire - Jim Cymbala

Seriously, this was the third closest "book" but the closest with 56 pages. The first was a training manual from a National Security Personnel System, and the next was the music for the Christmas Cantata we're rehearsing - On This Very Night (Karla Worley, arranged by Lari Goss).

I contacted my 5 by email, but don't expect much from them (you know who you are).

Metaphor for Jan 21, 2009

The only thing is that I'm not sure if it's a metaphor for the US economy, our national security, the rights of the unborn, or the Almighty's attitude towards our nation; probably all four.

I Hope To Take Even Your Change

President Elect, Barak Hussein Obama, responds to a Washington Times reporter's question of "How long will it take to begin ignoring all your campaign promises?" B.O. said "About that long..." snapped his fingers, and the reporter was unceremoniously kicked out of the celebration and a memo issued to his paper that they, too, were henceforth banned from all White House Press Conferences.
