Take care. Just Wonderful!

(Author Unknown)
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 notice something quite amazing....

Looking into the eyes of one horse will disclose that he is blind. But 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
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 be led safely.
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 abandon us just because we may not be 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 like the blind horse being guided by the little ringing bell
of thosewho God places in our lives.
Other times we are the guide horse, helping others to find their way....
Good friends are just like that...

You may not always see them, but you know they are always there…

Be kind,
Someone you meet may be fighting
Some kind of battle.
Live Simply,
Love Generously,
Care Deeply,
Speak Kindly....... 


 Friends, things which are Real,
are always given and received in Silence.
