  Keep reading to the bottom of the page--don't stop at the feet. You'llsee--

  一定要读到最后,不要停下,你将会看到—


  Two travelling angels stopped to spend the night in the home of a wealthy fami lyhe family was rude and refused to let the angels stay in the mansion's guestroom. 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 repairedit. When the younger angel asked why, the older angel replied,″Things aren't always what theyseem.″

  两个旅行中的天使到一个富有的家庭借宿。这家人对他们并不友好,拒绝让他们在舒适的客房过夜,而是在冰冷的地下室给他们找了一个角落。当天使们在硬硬的地板上铺床时,年长的天使发现墙上有一个洞,就把它修补好了。年轻的天使问这是为什么,老天使答道:“有些事并不是它们看上去的那样。”

  T he 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. The second family had little but was willing to share everything, and you let the cowdie.″

  第二天晚上,两个天使到了一个非常贫穷的农家借宿。主人夫妇对他们非常热情,把仅有的一点食物拿出来款待客人,然后又让出自己的床给两个天使。第二天一早,两个天使发现农夫和他的妻子在哭泣———他们惟一的生活来源———一头奶牛死在田间。年轻的天使非常愤怒。他质问老天使:“为什么会这样?第一个家庭什么都有,你还帮助他们修补墙洞。第二个家庭尽管如此贫穷,还是热情地款待客人,愿意和我们分享他们的一切,而你却没有阻止奶牛的死亡!”

  ″Things aren't always what theyseem,″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 findit.″

  “有些事并不是它们看上去的那样,”老天使答道:“当我们在地下室过夜时,我从墙洞看到墙里面堆满了金子。因为主人被贪欲所迷惑,不愿意分享他的财富,所以我把墙洞填上了,这样他就不能享用墙里面的金子了。”

  ″Then last night as we slept in the farmers'bed, the angel of death came for the wife. I gave him the cow instead. Things aren't always what theyseem.″

  “昨天晚上,当我们睡觉时,死亡之神来召唤农夫的妻子,我让奶牛代替了她。有些事并不是它们看上去的那样。”

  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…

  有些时候,从表面看,事情是这样的,而实际上,它却是那样的。如果你有信念,你只需坚信,付出总会得到回报。你可能不会知道这一点,直到一段时间以后……
