Two Horses I love this 

Two Horses
There is a field, with two horses in

 

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 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.... 

Leave the rest to God !
