Just up the road from my casa is a field, with two horses in it. From a distance, each horse looks like any other horse. But if you stop to look closely you will notice something quite amazing. One horse is blind, however, the Owner has chosen not to have the horse put down, but He took the time to provide well for this magnificient creation. 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 that lets the blind friend know what direction to take, so his friend can follow. Watching 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 that is 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 His plans are to prosper you and bring you home to glory! AUTHOR an UNKNOWN MAVERICK --- THERE is NO BIG DEAL when there is SOMETHING unseen BETWEEN US, THERE IS ALWAYS A HELPING HAND, THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY, THERE IS ALWAYS A DOOR TO WALK THROUGH. We must LISTEN closely to the tinkling bell and consider the sweet ways of our Lord. TWO HORSES, who would have guessed that our God is a MAVERICK, whose WAYS are unmatched in gentleness, mercy, and kindness. AMEN~
