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…….
