THE PASTOR'S CAT

рассказ на английском



   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.'

    Never underestimate the Power of God and His unique sense of humor.
    Anyone can count the seeds in an apple; but only God can
    count the apples in a seed 
    GIVE ME A SENSE OF HUMOR, LORD
    GIVE ME THE GRACE TO SEE A JOKE
    TO GET SOME HUMOR OUT OF LIFE
    AND PASS IT ON TO OTHER FOLKS
                       
    AMEN !
