    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...

    The Lordís subtle way of answering prayers sometimes escapes us.

    When the Lord answers our prayers, itís easy for us to say, ďLord, forget that request a few days ago. Iíve taken care of it myself.Ē We think that we have done something ourselves, or that what occurred by divine direction was merely a coincidence. A number of experiences have convinced me otherwise. The Lord constantly blesses our lives, but often we fail to recognize those blessings.
    Why are answers to prayer often difficult to recognize? Possibly because they usually come quietly, unfolding naturally in our lives without drama or fanfare. Sometimes, too, we donít consider ourselves worthy to receive answers and fail to recognize our Father in Heavenís love for us. Finally, answers to prayers arenít always the answers we expected or even necessarily asked for.
