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 small space in the cold

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

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
outcome is always to your advantage. You might
not know it until some time later…

-- Should you find it hard to get to sleep tonight,
remember the homeless family who has no bed to lie in.

-- Should you find yourself stuck in traffic, don’t
despair, there are people in this world for whom driving is an unheard-of privilege.

-- Should you have a bad day at work, think of the man who has been out of work for many months struggling to feed his family.

-- Should you find yourself at a loss and pondering what is life all about, asking, “What is my purpose?”, be thankful, there are those who didn’t live long enough to get the opportunity.
