A Book Meme: and a gift

I have been tagged by my dear friend, Lisa, to do this fun book meme! Here's the rules: Grab the nearest book. Open the book to page 56. Find the fifth sentence. Post the text of the next two to five sentences in your journal/blog along with these instructions. Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST. Tag five other people to do the same.
I reached up into my filing shelf, and I grabbed a book called 'A Jewel in His Crown.' This is the winner's book to the contest I had for my 500th post. Wouldn't you know it, Lisa is the lucky winner! She followed the rules of that contest and did what was needed to win! So, Congratulations, Lisa! I will get this book to you soon!
ANYWAY~ I opened to page 56, and went to the fifth sentence...
Some women struggle with disabilities and others with disfiguring diseases. Some, like the young woman who went to Australia, are attractive in one culture and not in another. But we all need to do the best we can with what we have. God wants you to take good care of the beauty that He has given to you. And you can be sure of on thing-you are beautiful in His sight.
Thank you Lisa! That was fun, and it really says a great thing! It somewhat fits into our Bible Study lessons we are doing right now. I am in a Beth Moore Bible Study called Stepping Up: A Journey through the Psalms of the Ascent. It is a great study, and I think all of you should really consider being in a Beth Moore Bible Study!
I am a bit tangent-happy tonight...sorry about that...anyway, I tag these lovely ladies:
Ha ha...just trying to call a few Jen's to the task! Have fun Jen's! If anyone else wants to do it, let me know and I will check it out on your site!
