23. 123...

Tag again! But this one’s quite an interesting tag. It’s weird too. I got tagged for this post by Lee and Chrony at about the same time, when I had already made plans for stealing this tag from some arbit blog:D
The rules: Pick up the nearest book. Go to page 123. Find the fifth sentence. Post the next three sentences. Tag five people, and acknowledge the person who tagged you.

The book that I found nearest to me was my mother’s personal diary. No! I dare not touch that one…for one thing, the diary obviously doesn’t have its pages numbered, besides who knows what lies in the 5th sentence of the 123rd page. Should I dare browse through her diary? Naa….
So I went for the next book; found the 123rd page; and the 5th sentence goes on like:
That is why worldly pleasures cannot satisfy our deepest longings.
The next 3 sentences…
The cross says, “Don’t look to the material world for ultimate meaning and fulfilment.” The day before His crucifixion, Jesus warned, “Now is the time for judgement on this world”(John 12:31). Our worldliness was in Christ, and the Father judged it at the cross.
The book is Outrageous Mercy by WM.P.Farley.(Yea I still haven’t finished reading that book which I had started 3 blog-posts ago ;)
Now,the tagging part:
Crazy (glad to see you back after 1 whole year)
Viajero
Multimenon
MechRani(do you know that she has a blog?)
Harivishnu
(huh? All NITians??)
Now for the acknowledgements(what’s this for anyways??):
Lee: Blah…blah..blah…blah..blah
Chrony:Blah blah…blah blah…blah blah…
(I bet you guys’ll not get acknowledged like this ever, willya? You can thank me now!;)

I m bn overloaded with tags....This one goes to the stockpile to be used in dire needs :)
What criteria should a 'nearest book' meet in order for it to be a part of the tag? I have many nearest books :D
