The Book Meme

Nicole tagged me to do the Book Meme. Here are the instructions:

1. Grab the book closest to you open to page 123
2. Go down to the fourth sentence
3. Post the text of the following 3 sentences on your blog
4. Name the author and book title
5. Tag 3 people to do the same

There aren't any books in our office/guest room, so I look over to my left and into our bedroom and see a book on my nightstand, which is "Don't Make Me Count to Three" by Ginger Plowman. I'm reading this book in conjunction with "Sheparding a Child's Heart". On page 123, the chapter ends and the fourth sentence is the last one, so my meme will be from page 122 (sorry to break the rules...) Here is the quote for the meme:

"And because of my disobedience and neglect, my relationship with my children is not as intimate and open. Tension and frustration have crept into our relationship and robbed us of the openness and closeness that we usually share. We all suffer the consequences of my disobedience." - Ginger Plowman, "Don't Make Me Count to Three" - from the chapter on Setting the Standard of Obedience.

An interesting quote and one that makes you think about how our choices affect those around us, both the good and bad choices. In this case, our choice to disobey God will strain the most important relationships in our lives.

I guess I'll tag Courtney, Kristin, and Dana.
