birthday meme

Wednesday, November 23, 2005

T.O. at LAMLAND tagged me with this meme. You find your 'birthday verse' in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. My birthday verse is 8:29 for August 29. These translations come from the New American Bible, St. Joseph edition.

Matthew 8:29 - They cried out, "What have you to do with us, Son of God? Have you come here to torment us before the appointed time?"

Mark 8:29 – And he asked them, "But who do you say that I am?" Peter said to him in reply, "You are the Messiah."

Luke 8:29 - For he had ordered the unclean spirit to come out of the man. (It had taken hold of him many times, and he used to be bound with chains and shackles as a restraint, but he would break his bonds and be driven by the demon into deserted places.)

John 8:29 - The one who sent me is with me. He has not left me alone, because I always do what is pleasing to him.

Nice balance of being exorcised and then reaffirmed that God is with me.

I hereby tag Steph, Natty, and Claire Joy.

Ha ha.... I didn't even notice I had been tagged. But I just did it today. Been behind on my blog-reading lately. My verses are kind boring, being 1:6.

Yup. Part of the fun is seeing if the person is even aware of being tagged.

I saw the tag over Thanksgiving ... it's on my list of things to hit. I keep not having my Bible near the computer. I did look things up, though ... just need to post them.

But not right now. I'm too busy grading papers and making lesson plans, can't you tell? :-/
