I was tagged by Charlie for the book meme that’s been going around. I have seen it on quite a few blogs already. It is always interesting to see what others are reading at the moment.
- Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
- Open the book to page 123.
- Find the fifth sentence.
- Post the next three sentences.
- Tag five people.
I have been on a fiction binge. Last weekend I read the Circle Trilogy – Black, Red, and White – by Ted Dekker. I highly recommend it, great imagery of God, Jesus, and the kingdom, amid an interesting, can’t-put-it-down story that had me reading when I should have been working and sleeping.
This week I grabbed the latest by Kristen Heitzmann to keep me company at the gym. Echoes is the third book in a series that I have enjoyed reading. Maybe a little sappy for the guys, but just right for me, and it had some great imagery of the power of community to heal and invite others into relationship.
This was the nearest book today, so here are the sentences for the meme…
“At night in our room he’d creep up to my bed to hear me breathing. I’d tell him to get back before the monsters chewed his ankles, but I meant before someone heard him. If Dad knew he was afraid of the dark…”
I am going to tag 5 people that I don’t think I have tagged before.

- Rich at Hey, Ya Know What?
- Sue at My Father’s House
- Maria at Spiritual Birdwatching
- Lori at Vikingfru’s Place
