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 horses, 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
Hey ya'll! My name is Vickie, friends call me Vic. I make prim tags, soap, candle tarts, wreaths & swags, potpourri and anything else that might seem fun. I also offer prim decorating items and western items. I own and operate Peddler's Junktion Thrift Shoppe. I'm married to a great guy, have 2 grown "kids" and 4 grandkids. Have a spoiled Jack Russell named Tippy, a red heeler named Patsy and a yorkie/maltese named Po. We all live on 2 Much Farm in Camden, SC. We call it “2 Much Farm” because we started out with 2 acres and 2 horses in the TOTAL woods and while we were clearing it solely by hand we would always look at each other and say “This is just TOO MUCH”. The horses left a few years ago, and miss them still to this day. (Don't miss all the work tho !!) I play keyboard with my drummer husband and we also DJ together. I have truly been blessed in my journey on this earth, and thank the Lord Jesus Christ for all His blessings and for loving me and watching over me.
