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 !

Glad to see that I wasn't the only one who almost lost it reading this.  

Besides, women like mushy sensitive guys.

Ray, we could all live by those lines as a mission statement. Its so easy to forget that some people have worse problems than we do.

I personally think I will just laugh my way through the next 50 years....I've had quite enough of the other....LOL!



Amen Arizona,, I've had quite enough of the other myself ! I was never one to be oh pitty me,,but it's now about time to celebrate how blessed my life really is,, I'm so lucky !!

 

 

Annacath, it's amazing what we can learn from animals and other people if we just pay attention.

 

Thanks Brian, I'm just a mushy sensitive guy !   LOL
