Two horses are in a field.
From a distance, each looks like every 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. And if you are nearby and listening, you would 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 her halter is a small bell.
It lets her blind friend know where she is, so he can follow her.
As you stand and watch these two friends, you will see how she is always checking on him, and that he will listen for her bell and then slowly walk to where she is, trusting that she will not lead him astray.
When she returns to the shelter of the barn each evening, she stops occasionally and looks back, making sure her friend isn’t too far behind to hear the bell.
Just like the owner of these two horses, God does not throw us away just because we are not perfect or because we have problems or challenges in our life!
He watches over us and even brings others into our lives to help us when we are in need.
Sometimes we are like the blind horse being guided by the little ringing bell of those who God places into our lives.
At other times we are like the guide horse, helping others to see.
Good friends are like this.
You don’t always see them, but you know they are always there.
Please listen for my bell and I’ll listen for yours.
Be as kind as you can to everyone as everyone is fighting some kind of battle!
With many Peaceful Blessings
