The rules of the meme:
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.
So here's mine. My nearest book with actual page numbers is "When the Heart Waits" by Sue Monk Kidd.
page 123. I found the fifth sentence and here are the next three (plus one) sentences.

He lamented, "We are always wanting to put people on escalators to go to the next stage of faith as quickly as possible."If she can I tag zuzu's petal's (although I doubt any of her books these days have 123 pages. :), polka dots and hiccups, a large number of small experiences, blogicalinks, and random reflections.
