The Uninvited Guest

Friday 11 May 2018 was the start of the Thy kingdom com initiative in our Church.  The Mhinisteir left just before 7.30am to conduct morning prayer in the Church.

Since it was a sunny morning, I decided to air the sitting room which we don’t use often and so proceeded to unlock it.  The moment I stepped into the room,  I noticed that there was something wrong.  What was wrong? A painting on the wall was displaced.  Just as I was thinking what might have caused it, there was a loud noise.  Sounded like wings flapping.  I started screaming.  Why? I have no idea!!!! Thankfully I hadn’t completely  taken leave of my senses.  I calmed myself down and saw that it was a bird, flapping it’s wings furiously.   A Pigeon to be precise! I quickly ran out of the room and pulled the door shut.  Then I texted the Mhinisteir asking him to ring me after morning prayer.

i did a quick Google search to see how I could get rid of the Pigeon.  Just then I heard the car, I assumed the Mhinisteir got my message. It transpired he didn’t!!!!  He made a few phone calls trying to get help.  Some were not available while the others were afraid of birds!  We left the French door open but the Pigeon refused to budge. I told the Mhinisteir that we can’t wait longer and must use the bedsheet method.  Alas it proved to be effective but only after much coaxing.  A lot of damage had been done to the room by this lone Pigeon.  I was a little annoyed but quite thankful that it wasn’t another burglary or any other pests that I couldnt cope with.
