Two traveling angels

Keep reading to the bottom of the page -- don't
stop at the feet (You'll see).

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

in the mansion's guest room.

Instead the angels were given a small 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 the 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 him
the cow instead.

Things aren't always what they seem."

Sometimes that 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 out come
is always to your advantage. You just might not  know it

until some time later...
