I did not write this. A friend sent it to me in an email. It is such a beautiful story I felt compelled to share it with you.

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.......
                                               
And leave the rest to God!



FOR  WE WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY  SIGHT

I like this Lew: We all are blind in some ways and we all need a lead horse. Like you said; none of us are perfect. We all have learning to do. Lead on dear horse and keep on giving us something new to think about/ BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE lil flower
