Two traveling angels, one older, one younger, stopped to spend the night in the home of a wealthy family.
The family refused to let the angels stay in the mansion's guest room.
Instead they offered the angels 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."
