Inspiring Story: Two Angles..

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.
