Book Tag or something like it

I was over at one of my favorite blogs and saw this fun little book taggie thingy. Dazzled you there for a minute with my my technical terms didn't I? are the rules or guidelines if you are more like my friend B.

The rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book (at least 123 pages)
2. Turn to page 123
3. Find the 5th sentence
4. Post the 5th sentence on your blog
5. Tag 5 people

I'm not near my bookshelf upstairs so the pickings were a little slim but I did find one called True to the Faith: A gospel reference. I turned to page 123 and under the section listed "Receiving answers to prayer" The 5th sentence reads "He may sometimes answer no, even when your petitions are sincere"

Boy isn't that the truth. There have been many times in my life where my petitions were sincere and I would even say righteous desires such as having children when I have been told no. I do find that I usually see the reason at some point but it's awfully hard to wait and there are some that I am still waiting on.

This was really fun and since I am a rule follower..ahem..LOL I will tag Yvonne, Nancy, Charlotte, Melissa and Mo Mommy.

I love this meme.

I love picking up a book and closing my eyes, opening up to a page, and picking out a sentence.

I'm always curious to see if it speaks to me. Your did today.

Yvonne said...

Great and powerful words, tonya.

I remember a story where a mom heard her little boy praying and asking for a choo choo train. The next morning she said to him something like, "I'm sorry Heavenly Father didn't answer your prayer." He responded, "Yes he did. He just said no." Oh, the faith of a child ; )

Nancy Face said...

Wow, I love how you turned a cute little game into a wonderful post about prayer! Your words are so true.

Thank you for the tag! I'm slow about getting them done, but I WILL do it! :)

Melissa said...

The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe is the book... 5th full sentence on the page "For when they tried to look at Aslan's face they just caught a glimpse of the golden mane and great, royal, solemn, overwhelming eyes; and then they found that they couldn't look at him and went all trembly."
:) I always forget to complete meme's... hope you don't mind that I did it here ;)

i love that sentance even though I don't always like the truth of it, probably just because I don't like being told no :)
