will not last forever. If going wrong, don’t worry, they can’t
last long either.
Our lovely family member Chantelle got to spend time with
Logan and Justin and Ahram on her last weekend in Seoul. I
am so happy for them all.
Family faces are magic mirrors.
If there is any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not deter or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again. ~William Penn

The next time a sunrise steals your breath
or a meadow of flowers leave you speechless,
remain that way.
Say nothing, and listen as heaven whispers,
"Do you like it?
I did it just for you".
Teach your children that they need nothing exterior
to themselves to be happy - no person, place, or thing
and that true happiness is found within.
Teach them that they are sufficient unto themselves.

Story – Traveling Angels
I love this story of two traveling angels which illustrates that things aren’t always as 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 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 to your advantage. You might not know it until some time later.
“All God’s angels come to us disguised.”
