Springtime in Waterloo




Found this little "game" (if you will) while blogstalking...

1. Pick up the book nearest to you and go to page 123.
2. Find the 5th sentence.
3. Post the next three sentences after the fifth one....

Joseph and I are going to start reading this devotional together and so it was sitting right next to me on the desk. It was this or the Texas Property Tax Appraisal District Directory, an obvious choice!

So mine says,
"Because he was a widowed father traveling with his young daughters and niece, the young cleric could have claimed a seat in one of the ship's twenty lifeboats. But Harper was determined to follow the example of the One who called us to take up the cross. Harper made the decision. He kissed his girls goodbye and remained on the ship, witnessing to those who were about to perish."
So I extended mine to 4 sentences but wasn't it worth it? The Lord speaks to us in very unique ways sometimes. I have found clarity in just these 4 short sentences for something that has been heavy on my heart today.
What does yours say? Leave a comment.

I just now reviewed several days of your Blog. My NASB Bible was next to me. Page 123, 3 sentences after the 5th sentence is Exodus 20:15-17 "You shall not steal. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife or his male servant or his female servant or his ox or his donkey or anything that belongs to your neighbor."
We can never read the Ten Commandments too many times!
