TWO HORSES - September 29, 2005

I received a story from my nephew who is a veterinarian.

The story begins in a field with two horses. Even at a distance, each looks like any horse. But if one stops to observe, something is noticed that is quite amazing. One horse is blind. The owner did not have it put down, but has given it a good, comfortable home. This in itself is amazing.

Then while listening, you will hear the sound of a bell, and 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 you watch these two friends, one sees how she is always checking on him, and he will listen for her bell and then slowly walk to where she is--trusting that she will not lead him astray.

Like the owner 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 horse who is giving aid.

I thought about our county as I read the story. The “other part of the county” does not say, “Everything is washed away there. It shouldn’t be rebuilt,” but instead, everyone participates, donates money or finds items that can help our neighbors. We pray for them, and attend their festivals, dinners and events. I have seen all sections work together for the welfare of all.

We are like the horses. We are paired with our friends who need help.  In times of trouble they can count on us, we can count on them!

This morning, I went to the computer and found a message that completely turned me around.

It was a forwarded video from my daughter, entitled “Thank You” with the song, “Homeward Bound Again,” playing in the background. In the beginning it portrays a quiet misty morning, showing a tent city and soldiers waking up to a new day. The included slide show is impressive, and ends with

UNTIL THEN

TO OUR MILITARY AND THEIR FAMILIES

YOU ARE ALL IN OUR HEARTS, MINDS AND PRAYERS
