All the Meme that's fit to print

More meme madness from Rick: I've been tagged with the Birthday Meme. You find your birthday verse in each gospel. I've used the New Jerusalem Bible.

Matthew 12:5
Or again, have you not read in the Law that on the sabbath day the Temple priests break the sabbath without being blamed for it?

Mark 12:5
And he sent another and him they killed; then a number of others, and they thrashed some and killed the rest.

Luke 12:5
"Master," Simon replied, "we worked hard all night long and caught nothing, but if you say so, I will pay out the nets."

John 12:5
"Why wasn't this ointment sold for three hundred denarii, and the money given to the poor?"

I haven't analysed these verses for a theme, but I do hope you all will note that my birthday is fast approaching and will make arrangements for the festivities.

I prefer the NJB myself.

Mrs. Darwin,

I will help you celebrate, even though I will be 1800 miles away. If I get tagged, like I did by Rhonda, I will just provide the permalink to yours. :-)

And you know, Tex, that Walt Disney also was born on Dec. 5, so we're in lofty company. Which doesn't make up for us having no saint on our birthday, but you have to take what you can get, I guess.

Here's a birthday verse for you to rejoice in someday: "She gave birth to a son, a male child!" (Revelation 12:5)

(On a related topic, you might want to skip Leviticus 12:5, unless you and Darwin want a good laugh...)

Have a happy birthday, Mrs. Darwin.
