Two Horses...

This is a little Cowboy story sent to me recently, I loved spoke to me...I hope it speaks to you too...

Two Horses
If you stop your car to watch, you will notice something quite amazing. Looking into the eyes of the
bigger 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 listen closely, 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 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'll 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 barn each evening, she stops occasionally and looks back, making
sure her 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 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 are put in
our lives. Other times we are the guide horse, helping others see when they are blinded. 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.

Cheers to Happy  !!
