This is just a little story to remind us that if an angel calls for someone, it is for a purpose, and not to take life for granted. sometimes we are spared, but if we are not it is for a very special reason
THINGS AREN'T ALWAYS WHAT THEY SEEM
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 outcome is always to
your advantage. You might not know it until some time later...
