Well the results are in. The test is scored 1-5 with 5 being the best you can get.
Morgan scored a 4 in Reading and in Science, and a 5 in Math. We are so proud of her. In the last 2 years she has scored 5 in Reading, as this is her area of excellence and she has in the past struggled some with the Math portion of things. So the reversal of this is a surprise to all of us.

Here are the cards that we gave to Rick and Betty at the luncheon after church. I hope they like them.
This is the card for Rick. I used the Light of the World stamp by Our Daily Bread. The papers and inks are all from Stampin Up. Rick we have really enjoyed having you here and we will really miss you. You have inspired us and you have been able to reach Morgan when many others have not. For this we are really grateful. We pray that you will have a great break and that you will inspire many others at the next church you are at.This is the card for Betty. I used the Baroque Motifs stamp from Stampin Up. All the papers and inks are from Stampin Up. The rhinestones were from the dollar spot at Michael's. We were not able to get to know Betty much, but we thank her for all the support that she gave the church.

"The Final Inspection"
The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said,
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges
can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."
