*QUESTION: What happens to your body as you age?

Kids are always good for some laughs. Our special thanks to Babs Eggleston for the questions and answers. Is there a life-lesson to be learned from these test results? Very simply: Be prepared before you take a test! The ultimate test will take place when we all, some day, stand before the Judgment place with God as the judge. It's not too late to prepare.

"Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people..." (Hebrews 9:27).
