Two Horses

There 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 horses, 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


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


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


some kind of battle.

Live simply,

Love generously,

Care deeply,

Speak kindly....

Leave the rest to God.
