Never underestimate the Power of God and His unique sense of humor.

THE PASTOR’S CAT
““““““““““““““““““““““““
This particular story just made
me laugh. Every time I think
about it, the vision of that
poor cat just amuses me no end.
Hope the story leaves a bright
spot in your day.

Whoever said the Creator doesn’t
have a sense of humor?

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 pulled it
until the tree bent down, he
could then reach up and get the
kitten.
That’s what he did, all the while
checking his progress in the car.
He 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
the car a little further forward,
the rope broke.
The tree went “boing!” and the
kitten instantly sailed through
the air – out of sight.
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. 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 then 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.”
