    The Pastor’s Cat…

    Dwight Nelson recently told a true story about the pastor of his church. He had a
    kitten that climbed up a tree in his backyard and then was afraid to come down.
    The pastor coaxed, offered warm milk, etc. The kitty would not come down. The tree
    was not sturdy enough to climb, so the pastor decided that if he tied a rope to
    his car and drove away so that the tree bent down, he could then reach up and get
    the kitten.
    He did! All the while, checking his progress in the car frequently, then figured
    if he went just a little bit further, the tree would be bent sufficiently for him
    to reach the kitten. But as he moved a little further forward, the rope broke. The
    tree went “boing!” and the kitten instantly sailed through the air — out of
    The pastor felt terrible. He walked all over the neighborhood asking people if
    they’d seen a little kitten. No. Nobody had seen a stray kitten. So he prayed,
    “Lord, I just commit this kitten to your keeping,” and went on about his business.

    A few days later he was at the grocery store, and met one of his church members.
    He happened to look into her shopping cart and was amazed to see cat food. Now
    this woman was a cat hater and everyone knew it, so he asked her, “Why are you
    buying cat food when you hate cats so much?”
    She replied! “You won’t believe this,” and told him how her little girl had been
    begging her for a cat, but she kept refusing. Then a few days before, the child
    had begged again, so the Mom finally told her little girl, Well, if God gives you
    a cat, I’ll let you keep it.”
    She told the pastor, “I watched my child go out in the yard, get on her knees, and
    ask God for a cat. And really, Pastor, you won’t believe this, but I saw it with
    my own eyes. A kitten suddenly came flying out of the blue sky, with its paws
    outspread, and landed right in front of her.”
    Never underestimate the Power of God and His unique sense of humor…….
