Default MMTPT218 ~ October 2, 2012 ~ Obadiah and The Church Cat!

WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY MMTPT218 AND
THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING TEAPARTY



Obadiah and the Church Cat

Note: Anyone is welcome to play! You automatically become a Teapotter the first time you play in our challenge. Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun! If this is your first Teapot Tuesday Challenge, please mention that in your commentary so we can be sure to greet you properly, in pure Teapot Tuesday fashion! Your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not at all required. Just have fun!

Obadiah was a church mouse who lived a peaceful life in God’s house.
Then one day while walking under a pew, Obadiah heard a “Mew.”
Oh no, could it be a feline had invaded?
Obadiah froze and waited with his breath bated.

The kitty stretched and then blinked
He was the color of Versafine Onyx ink
Having woken from his nap
He sauntered down the apse.
The kitty stopped and stared
Obadiah was so scared!
What’s a church mouse to do?
He was plainly in Inky’s view.

Inky purred and flicked his fluffy ebony tail
He smiled and said, “Mouse, you are not in jail.
My name is Inky and I am a peace loving soul
Getting along with fellow mammals is my goal.
Come out from underneath that pew
I promise I won't hurt you."

"I have always heard of church mice
and thought living in a church would be nice.
I have moved in with the new pastor
He is my kind and beloved master."

"I’m lucky enough to be a church cat
I don’t expect you to roll out the Welcome mat,
but I am well fed and have no need for stalking
I’ll even share my bread with you while we sit here talking.”

Obadiah was so relieved.
Could this cat be believed?
After all, they were in the house of the Lord
Even a cat couldn’t be so untoward.

Inky pushed a crust of bread
It landed next to Obadiah’s head.
The new friends sat and shared their snack
The little brown mouse and this cat of black.
Unlikely buddies who shared a home
And that’s the end of my Teapot Tuesday poem.

When God Created Kitty Cats

When God created kitty cats, He had no recipe;
He knew He wanted something sweet, As sweet as sweet could be.
He started out with sugar, Adding just a trace of spice;
Then stirred in drops of morning dew, To keep them fresh and nice.

He thought cats should be soft to pet, Thus He gave them coats of fur;
So they could show they were content, He taught them how to purr.
He made for them long tails to wave, While strutting down the walk;
Then trained them in meow-ology, So they could do cat-talk.
He made them into acrobats, And gave them grace and poise;

Their wide-eyed curiosity, He took from little boys.
He put whiskers on their faces, Gave them tiny ears for caps;
Then shaped their little bodies, To snugly fit on laps.
He gave them eyes as big as saucers, To look into man's soul;
Then set a tolerance for mankind, As their purpose and their goal.

Benevolent ... and ... generous, He made so many of them;
Then charged, with Fatherly Concern, The human race to love them.
When one jumped up upon His lap, God gently stroked its head;
The cat gave Him a kitty kiss, "What wondrous love," God said.
God smiled at His accomplishment, So pleased with His creation;
And said, with pride, as He sat back, "At last. . .I've reached purr-fection!"

CHALLENGE TRANSLATION:
Bring Cats or the color yellow
Extra cookies if you include Scripture.

DESTINATION STATION:
This week our destination is Malabar, Florida.
If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to Jean? She was brought to our attention by fellow Teapotter, Sugar (redcaboose1717)

Jean is terminally ill having been diagnosed with lung and breast cancer in July of 2011. For more information as well as the address to mail your card to please visit Post #317 in the Teapot Tuesday Destination Station Thread. Please remember that just because you participate in a Teapot Tuesday challenge that is combined with a card drive request, it does not mean that you are REQUIRED to send your cards. It is totally 100% voluntary!


Here is a link to my card.

Here is a Quick Link to the Teapot Tuesday #218 Challenge Gallery.

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT218 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!

Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? SCS has given Cindy (Mothermark) permission to create an email Teapot Tuesday Cheater Group and email the challenge out on the Saturday before the Tuesday of the challenge so you girls can have the weekend to make your card. Send her a pm with your email address if you wanna be a Cheater!

If you are confused about these challenges, see the first sticky post of this thread for more information. There is also a directory of individual challenges.

Sorry, no kitties, mice, or even yellow, but I did use a verse of Scripture:
