Two Traveling 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 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
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, he 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...
Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow a mystery.
Today is a gift.
That's why it's called the present!
