    Things Aren't 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 farmer's bed, the angel of death came for his wife. I gave him the cow instead. Things aren't always what they seem."

    Finding Refuge "Wings"

            This is a true story that happen a few years ago and

             I would like to share it. After a forest fire in Yellowstone

            National Park, forest rangers began their trek up a

            mountain to assess the inferno's damage.

     

            One ranger found a bird literally petrified in ashes,

            perched statuesquely on the ground at the base of a

            tree. Somewhat sickened by the errie sight, he knocked

            over the bird with a stick. When he struck it three tiny

            chicks scurried from under their dead mother's wings.

     

            The loving mother, keenly aware of impending disaster,

            had carried her offspring to the base of a tree and had

            gathered them under her wings. Instinctiverly knowing

            that the toxic smoke would rise. She could have flown

            to safety but had refuse to abandon her babies. When

            the blaze had arrived and the heat has scorched her

            small body the mother had remained steadfast. Because

            she had been willing to die so those under her wings

            would live.

     

            He will cover you with his feathers, and under his

            wings you will find refuge.

                                                                              Psalm 91:4

           Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall

           praise thee.

            Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in

           thy name.

            My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and

           my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:

                                                              Psalm 63:3-5
