TWO HORSES IN A FIELD
Just up the road from my home is a field, with two horses in it. From a
distance, each looks like every other horse. But if one stops the car, or is
walking by, one 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.
Listening, one will hear the sound of a bell. Looking around for the source
of the sound, one will see that it comes from the smaller horse in the
field. Attached to her bridle is a small bell. It lets her blind friend know
where she is, so he can follow her.
As one stands and watches these two friends, one sees 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.
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 God and those whom he
places in our lives. Other times we are the guide horse, helping others see
