Award challenge

I was tagged by Wendy for this award: Find the book closest to you, open to page 56, and find the 5th sentence. Then type it and pass it along to 5 more people.

I happen to be surrounded by books right here...how to choose? I was going to pick my Bible (And it came to pass, as he drew back his hand, that, behold, his brother came out: and she said, How hast thou broken forth? This breach be upon thee: therefore his name was called Pharez. ~Genesis 38:29) But, I couldn't help adding this one from Lies Women Believe by Nancy Leigh DeMoss: "The single restriction God put on her diet was one too many for Eve." How much I am like our first mother!

I will pass this on to: Mommy, Mel, Jamie, Zoe, and Carl.

Okay, here goes: "Once the baby gets a little older (4-6 months), the handle is flipped, the seat back pushed up, and presto, you've got yourself a front-facing stroller."
The first book within reach at the moment is What to Expect the First Year... :) Not terribly profound, but hey, it's what I'm reading these days. :)

Oh, for Pete's Sake! Aside from my Bible, the closest books I have are a Thesaurus and a Dictionary!
They don't have sentences, but here goes nothin'.

"am-mu-ni'tion, v.t; ammunitioned, pt., pp.; ammuntioning,ppr. To provide or equip with ammunition.(Wesbster's New Twentieth Century Dictionary[How "New" is it ~ published in 1942!])

chart (SYN.) design, plan, cabal, plot, sketch, stratagem, map, diagram, conspiracy, graph, intrigue. (Webster's Thesaurus)

I keep these close by so I can have pithy comments at the ready and actually know what they mean!
