“Two Horses,” by George & Jane Campbell



twohorsesJust 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…….
