Traveling Angels...

Traveling Angels...
a story donated by Christian Olsen, Polunsky Unit, TX

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 in the mansions guest room.

Instead the angels were given the space in the cold basement.
As they made their bed on the hard floor, the older angel saw a hole in the wall ay nd 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 resat 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 beds where they could have a good nights rest.

When the sun came up the next morning, the angels found the farmer and his wife in tears.
Their only cow, who`s milk had been their sole income, lay dead in the field.

The young 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 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 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 as 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 just might not know it until sometime later....
