This particular story just made me laugh. Every time I think about
it, the vision of that poor cat just amuses me.

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
drove away so that 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

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

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.
