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 livesTo 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!
