God Answers Knee-Mail

A minister had a kitten that climbed  up a tree in his backyard and then was afraid to come down. The minister coaxed, offered warm milk and the kitten wouldn't come down.

The tree was not sturdy  enough to climb, so the minister decided to tie a rope to tree and his car, drive away so the tree would bend down and he could reach up and get the kitten.

He moved slowly further and further and just as he thought he could reach the kitten, the rope broke. The tree went "boing" and the kitten sailed through the air out of sight.

 He walked around the neighborhood asking people if they had seen the kitten, but nobody had. So he prayed, "Lord, I just commit this kitten to your keeping," and went about his business.

A few days later he met one of his church members at the grocery store. He was amazed to see cat food in her cart, because 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 she told how her little girl had been begging for a cat, but she kept refusing.

 Then a few days ago, the child had begged again, so the mom finally told her, "Well, if God gives you a cat, I'll let you keep it."

She told him, "I watched my child go out into the yard, get on her knees and ask God for a cat. And really, Preacher you won't believe this, but I saw it with my own eyes. A kitten suddenly came flying out of the sky and landed in her arms.

The moral of this little story is my favorite little saying "You never know when you are the answer to someone else's prayer.
