A story is told of a little boy who made a toy boat. One day when he was floating it on the river, it was carried far out of his sight. He grieved over the loss of it. Sometime afterward he saw it in the window of a pawnshop. The proprietor would not give it to him, even though he told him it was his own. He would have to pay $2.75 for it.

After working hard for several days to earn sufficient money to purchase it, he returned to the shop and bought his boat. As he carried it away with him, he held it close to him and said, "Little boat, you are twice mine. In the first place I made you, and in the second place I paid for you."

We are twice God's. He is our creator and our redeemer.

By Wanda Porter

(10-17 points): You are OSCAR
You are wild and crazy and you know it. You know how to have fun, but you may take it to extremes. You know what you are doing though, and are much in control of your own life. People don't always see things your way, but that doesn't mean that you should do away with your beliefs. Try to remember that your wild spirit can lead to hurting yourself and others.

(18-26 points): You are ERNIE
You are fun, friendly, and popular. You are a real crowd pleaser. You have probably been out on the town your share of times, yet you come home with the values that your mother taught you. Marriage and children are important to you, but only after you have fun. Don't let the people you please influence you to stray.

(27-34 points): You are COOKIE MONSTER
You are cute, and everyone loves you. You are a best friend that no one takes the chance of losing. You never hurt feelings and seldom have your own feelings hurt. Life is a breeze. You are witty and calm most of the time. Just keep clear of back stabbers, and you are worry free.

(35-42 points) You are BERT
You are a lover. Romance, flowers, and wine are all you need to enjoy yourself. You are serious about all commitments. A family person. You call your Mom every Sunday, and never forget a birthday. Don't let your passion for romance get confused with the real thing.

(43-50 points) You are THE COUNT
You are smart, a real thinker. Every situation is approached with a plan. You are very healthy in mind and body. You teach strong family values. Keep your feet planted in them, but don't overlook a bad situation when it does happen.

A church congregation decided to have four separate worship services each Sunday.

There was one section for those people who were new to the faith, another for regular members who preferred the more traditional worship service, one for those who'd lost their faith and wanted to get it back, and a separate service for those who had had some unsuccessful experiences with other churches and had some complaints.

The four services are named: Finders, Keepers, Losers, Weepers.
