"Things aren't always what they seem."- a little story

here's a story that i read everytime i have a problem in my

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
