Two Horses

Author
Unknown

Just up the road from my home is a field, with two
horses in it.
From a
distance, each horse looks like any other
horse. But if you stop your car, or are
walking by, you will notice something quite
amazing....

Looking into the eyes
of one horse will disclose that he is
blind. His
owner has chosen not to have him put down, but
has made a good home for
him.
This
alone is amazing.

If you
stand nearby and listen, you will hear the
sound of a bell. Looking around for the source
of the sound, you will see that it comes from
the smaller horse in the
field.

Attached
to the horse's halter is a small
bell. It
lets the blind friend know where the other
horse is, so he can
follow.

As you
stand and watch these two friends, you'll see
that the horse with the bell is always
checking on the blind horse,
and that the blind horse will listen for the
bell and then slowly walk to where the other
horse is,
trusting that he will not be led
astray.

When
the horse with the bell returns to the shelter
of the barn each evening, it stops
occasionally and looks back, making sure that
the blind friend isn't too far behind to hear
the bell.
Like the owners
of these two horses, God does not throw us
away just because we are not perfect or
because we have problems or challenges.

He watches over us and even brings
others into our lives to help us when we are
in need.

Sometimes
we are the blind horse Being guided by the
little ringing bell
of those who God places in our
lives.

Other
times we are the guide horse, helping others
to find their way....

Good friends are
like that... You
may not always see them, but you know they are
always there.
Please
listen for my bell and I'll listen for
yours.
And
remember...
Be
kinder than necessary - - - Everyone you meet
is fighting some kind of battle.

Live
simply,
Love generously,
Care
deeply,
Speak
kindly.......

And
leave the rest to God!

FOR
WE WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY
SIGHT!
