"He Sits as a Refiner and Purifier of Silver"

Alright guyz...i'm due for a little updating...postish...thing
Well, i have another story...this one's really cool... !te divertes!

"He Sits as a Refiner and Purifier of Silver."

Malachi 3:3 says: "He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver."

This verse puzzled some women in a Bible study and they wondered
what this statement meant about the character and nature of God. One
of the women offered to find out the process of refining silver and
get back to the group at their next Bible Study.

That week, the woman called a silversmith and made an appointment to
watch him at work. She didn't mention anything about the reason for
her interest beyond her curiosity about the process of refining

As she watched the silversmith, he held a piece of silver over the
fire and let it heat up. He explained that in refining silver, one
needed to hold the silver in the middle of the fire where the flames
were hottest as to burn away all the impurities.

The woman thought about God holding us in such a hot spot; then she
thought again about the verse that says: "He sits as a refiner and
purifier of silver."

She asked the silversmith if it was true that he had to sit there in
front of the fire the whole time the silver was being refined. The
man answered that yes, he not only had to sit there holding the
silver, but he had to keep his eyes on the silver the entire time it
was in the fire. If the silver was left a moment too long in the
flames, it would be destroyed.

The woman was silent for a moment. Then she asked the silversmith,
"How do you know when the silver is fully refined?"

He smiled at her and answered, "Oh, that's easy -- when I see my
image in it"

If today you are feeling the heat of the fire, remember that God has
his eye on you and will keep watching you until He sees His image in

This is one of those things that the world would call a "cowinkydink"(i now copyright that spelling)...anyway...a coincidence to the world and a part of God's play to us. i love it when these happen...when you can see them happen anyway...really, really awesome!...gotta luv 'em...

o, my bad...
but, yeah...i took it...a little advice - STUDY!!!!
i took it yesterday. the testing order doesn't really matter (English, math...their sequence)
but if you haven't studied, DO IT!!! the english part is extremely easy, the math isn't too bad, the reading is extremely easy, and the science part is flabergasting... might be different for you, but that's how it was for all the people i talked to after the the by, if you haven't taken physics, you're screwed... ...unless you start studying now...and study a lot...
and i'm not calling you stupid, i'm giving you advice...cuz it was pretty hard for me...
well...all i have to say, is STUDY and PRAY...A LOT (if i didn't make that clear)(which, i think i did)
well, i don't even know why i typed this; i'll be seeing you today and i can tell you...but, just in case...
see ya
Tim? out.
