Another Fun Award!!!

My cool Blogger Buddy Tardevil over at
http://confessionsofa40-somethingmamaqueen.blogspot.com/
Has given me this really fun award! It is called "The Book Worm Award." Thanks Tardevil!!! Go on over and check out her wonderful blog she is a very fun girl and I have had a great time getting to know her! :D

So here are the very interesting rules to this one.

1) Open the closest book to you, not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment, to page 56.


2) Write out the 5Th sentence, as well as two to five sentences following.
I had just finished reading "A New Earth" By Eckhart Tolle. I love this book, and it just so happened to be on my nightstand still on top of a stack of books. I really like to read and can go through a book pretty fast. So here goes...
Whatever they had identified with, whatever gave them their sense of self, had been taken away. Then suddenly and inexplicably, the anguish or intense fear they initially felt gave way to a sacred sense of Presence, a deep peace and serenity and complete freedom of fear.
This Phenomenon must have been familiar to St. Paul, who used the expression "the peace of God which passeth all understanding." It is indeed a peace that doesn't seem to make sense, and the people who experienced it asked themselves: In the face of this, how can it be that I feel such peace?
And I will be in contact with my blogger buddy's that I'm passing this award onto!
My winners of this fabulous award are~
I can't wait to see what these girls have been reading!
I recommend you go to their fun blogs and check them out-I know you will enjoy getting to know them as I have!

  4. What a fun blog you have! I love the name of it. Made me smile.

    I may be the last person left in America who hasn't read "A New Earth." I guess I need to get with it and get a copy one of these days. :-)

  5. Hey Tam! Mr. Slug and his friends thank you from the bottom of thier bellies for the award! Wheeeee!!! I was at the office when I got this message, and the book closest to me was called "Secrets to foreclosure fortunes, and it was already bookmarked at page 56! Weird, Huh? The sentence was: "The market value of a house is based on what a buyer is willing to pay and what a seller is willing to take. Once the property is bought, the price asked of potential buyers will be considerably more."
    With that, I gotta go rehearse with the orchestra tonight, the show opens this Friday night! Yay for the slugs!! Love B
