I received this in an e-mail recently and it suddenly occurred to me to post it here.  We have all wondered "Why?"  "Why my best friend?"  "Why now?" "Why this way?"

Maybe this story will help us all to understand that even though the "Whys?" in this life leave us wondering, it's possible that the answers will make all the sense in the world once they are revealed to us one day.  All it takes is a little bit of faith.


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 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...
