Dwight Nelson recently told a true story about the pastor of his church.

The pastor 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 but 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 neighbourhood 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.’

Lesson learned… ……..Never  underestimate the Power of God and His unique sense of humour.
