Joke: the Ministers Cat

Don't forget to buy your copy of "Suffering Rancor," now with more cats--just kidding.

The Minister's cat.

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

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

He had a kitten that climbed up a tree in his backyard and then was afraid
to come down. The Minister coaxed, offered warm milk, etc. The kitty would
not come down.

The tree was not sturdy enough to climb, so the Minister 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 'bong!' and the kitten instantly sailed through the air - out
of sight.

The Minister 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.'

Lesson learned: Never underestimate the Power of God and His unique sense
of humor!
