Ever have a cat-up-a-tree? Ever seen a catapult? The following was
received from a missionary in Romania. God's care, creativity and
timing is awesome!
Suddenly a bright idea struck the pastor! By tying the wispy branches
of the tree to the bumper of his car and slowly driving forward, he
could bend the top branches enough to reach his terrified, precious
kitten. Carefully, the brave rescuer executed the brilliant plan.
However, just as the pastor reached for his furry friend, the rope
snapped and the wide-eyed, frozen kitty flew through the air as
though catapulted into space.
What to do? After a fruitless search the dejected pastor gave the
care of his former companion into the hands of his creator.
While shopping not many days later, the pastor bumped into the
grocery cart of a woman from his church. Knowing her reputation for
disliking cats, he commented on the fact that she had cat food in her
"You'll never believe what happened!" replied the woman. "My little
girl has been begging me for a kitten for months and I continually
responded that we have no need for a cat. She has such love for
animals, and one day when she again asked for her very own cat, I told
her that I would not get a cat for her, but if God gave her one, she
could keep it."
Satisfied with the answer, my daughter ran into the backyard, got
down on her knees, closed her eyes tightly and prayed, "Dear God,
please send me a kitty of my very own to love and care for. Amen."
"She opened her eyes and what do you think she saw? A little kitten
with paws outstretched flying through the air. It landed right in front
of my daughter and has been part of our family ever since!"
