The lesson of the “Two Horses”
The Bible always says it best; but this is also a good story, and a good lesson for us all to learn from; that we not be so all consumed with our problems, our cares, and our needs; but that we should always make ourselves available and reach out to those who are in need around us… and in watering others, we shall also be watering ourselves!

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.
If you stand nearby and listen, you will hear the sound of a bell.
Attached to the horse’s halter is a small bell.
the horse with the bell is always checking on the blind horse,
When the horse with the bell returns To the shelter of
the barn each evening, It stops occasionally and looks back,
throw us away just because we are not perfect
He watches over us and even brings others into our lives
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.
Leave the rest to God
