Two Travelling Angels

Two travelling 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


"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


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


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 outcome

is always to your advantage. You just might not

know it until some time later..

Wrong Number

It was the day of her son's XII results and she was so tensed. She sat beside him while he logged on the website with his registration no. "MOM", he screamed in excitement," I scored 1191, with centum in 4 subjects.

"I cant believe it. " She became numb in excitement.
Her eyes became wet. She kissed him on his forehead and smiled.

Soon they realized that he stood first in the state. Oh, her joy knew no bounds when reporters and media persons soon swamped her house for interviews and photos. She was so honored to join him in the snaps.

She wanted to call her "wrong-number- friend" to tell him the news......She was so excited. He was someone whom she has known for more than 20 years.

She still did not remember when they became friends, but certainly cannot forget the first day he called her when she blasted him for giving her so many wrong calls.....after that he had called up a week later asking apology, for he had now got the right number of his friend whom he wanted to talk to . They spoke for an hour that day...even without knowing each other's names.

Though he kept pestering her to reveal her name she never did and so he kept a name...Sweety. She used to get so shy whenever he called her 'Sweety'. She was doing first year of BSc. Maths then, and he was a Computer Engineering student. From then he used to call her very often . They almost discussed everything ..

By the final year of her college, they probably were in love, but she had been cautious. She was in a dilemma whether to tell him. But what if he was of a different religion? Did she have the courage to talk to her parents about it? ........all these questions ran through her mind.

She decided that she would not talk to him thereafter. When he called next time she lied to him that she was going to Delhi for her post graduation. He gave her his office number and asked her to ring him up once she reached there.

She never called .......

A couple of months later her marriage got fixed with a guy of her parent's choice. She was not happy but she did not complain; rather accepted it as an obedient daughter. At times she felt she missed her wrong- number- friend......

Her hubby was a moody person; she has hardly spent any good time with him- but he was genuine indeed and never bothered her personal space. After 2 years they had a boy...

Yet,s he was not very happy with her married life...

One day she happened to browse through her diary and found that she still had her old friend's office phone no that he had given her. she dialed it and spoke with him. He said he was married and got a kid too. She was happy for him though in the bottom of the heart she felt bad that she could not marry him.

From then she used to occasionally call him on that number.

She never gave him hers as she felt that would put her in trouble.. And till the day she almost shared everything with him including her relationship with her hubby..... today she was so happy and wanted to call him.

Just then she got a call. "Your husband met with an accident and died on the spot".

She banged the phone down. She broke. She did not call her friend.....She somehow started feeling guilty. She has never tried to talk to him properly when he was alive or moved close with him.... She felt that she had been a bad wife........
A couple of years passed and one day her son brought home a Bengali girl and said they wanted to get married. She got them married as she did not want her son to go through what she did.

She decided to give her son his father's room and started clearing it. There was a phone book. She gently opened it to find, "Wrong No Sweety -01010101"

God always puts the right numbers together. Its we who interpret it wrong!!!!!

The Essence Of Trust - A Short Story

A little girl and her father were crossing a bridge.

The father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter,
"Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don't fall into the river. "

The little girl said,
"No, Dad. You hold my hand."

"What's the difference?"
Asked the puzzled father.

"There's a big difference", replied the little girl.

"If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go. But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens, you will never let my hand go."

In any relationship, the essence of trust is not in its bind, but in its bond.

So hold the hand of the person whom you love rather than expecting them to hold urs... this story tells many things... u just need to understand the meaning rest depends on u.

A Touching Life Story

A young man was getting ready to graduate college. For many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer's showroom, and knowing his father could well afford it, he told him that was all he wanted.

As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited signs that his father had purchased the car.

Finally, on the morning of his graduation his father called him into his private study. His father told him how proud he was to have such a fine son, and told him how much he loved him. He handed his son a beautiful wrapped gift box.

Curious, but somewhat disappointed the young man opened the box and found a lovely, leather-bound Bible. Angrily, he raised his voice at his father and said, "With all your money you give me a Bible?" and stormed out of the house, leaving the Holy Book.

Many years passed and the young man was very successful in business.

He had a beautiful home and wonderful family, but realized his father was very old, and thought perhaps he should go to him. He had not seen him since that graduation day. Before he could make arrangements, he received a telegram telling him his father had passed away, and willed all of his possessions to his son. He needed to come home immediately and take care things. When he arrived at his father's house, sudden sadness and regret filled his heart.

He began to search his father's important papers and saw the still new Bible, just as he had left it years ago. With tears, he opened the Bible and began to turn the pages. As he read those words, a car key dropped from an envelope taped behind the Bible.It had a tag with the dealer's name, the same dealer who had the sports car he had desired. On the tag was the date of his graduation, and the words...PAID IN FULL.

How many times do we miss God's blessings because they are not packaged as we expected?

Always faith in God and pray everyday.

This will give you the feeling of contentment and make your life easier.
