2 Angels

Two traveling angels stopped to spend the night in the home of
a wealthy family. The family was rude and refused to let the
angels stay in the mansion's guest room. Instead the angels were
given a space in the cold basement. As they made their bed on
the hard floor,the older angel saw a hole in the wall and
repaired it. When the younger angel asked why, the older angel
replied..."Things aren't always what they seem".

The next night the pair came to rest at the house of a very
poor, but very hospitable farmer and his wife. After sharing
what little food they had the couple let the angels sleep in
their bed where they could have a good night's rest. When the
sun came up the next morning the angels found the farmer and his
wife in tears. Their only cow, whose milk had been their sole
income, lay dead in the field.

The younger angel was infuriated and asked the older angel
"how could you have let this happen!? The first man had
everything, yet you helped him," she accused. "The second
family had little but was willing to share everything, and
you let their cow die." "Things aren't always what they seem,"
the older angel replied. "When we stayed in the basement of
the mansion, I noticed there was gold stored in that hole in
the wall. Since the owner was so obsessed with greed and
unwilling to share his good fortune, I sealed the wall so he
wouldn't find it. Then last night as we slept in the farmers
bed, the angel of death came for his wife. I gave her the
cow instead. Things aren't always what they seem."

Sometimes this is exactly what happens when things don't
turn out the way they should. If you have faith, you just
need to trust that every outcome is always to your advantage.
You might not know it until some time later.
