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...if ever...that

Things aren't always what they seem

Yukiko greets.

Thank you very much for your inspiration writings. It has encouraged me very much.

It is true that faith is not a matter of how you appear to others but how you behave and what you actually do especially in terms of obstacles. In the long term, our invisible determinations and unseen actions to struggle through based on our strong faith and the absolute trust that we have in our faith...could definitely become manifest as visible results in our life. In the end...life is always a balance sheet that shows clearly the debit and the credit balance. A person based on absolute good faith and trust always enjoys ultimate victory at the end of his day.

Bows and thank you very much once again.
