At times I am a guide horse

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 get a closer look you will notice something quite interesting… One of the horses is blind. His owner has chosen not to have him put down, but has made him a safe and comfortable barn to live in.


This alone is pretty amazing. But if you stand nearby and listen, you will hear the sound of a bell. It is coming from a smaller horse in the field. Attached to the horse`s halter is a small, copper-colored bell. It lets the blind friend know where the other horse is, so he can follow. When the horse with the bell returns to the shelter of the barn each evening, he will stop occasionally to look back, making sure that the blind friend isn`t too far behind to hear the bell and the blind horse will listen for the bell and then slowly walk to where the other horse is, trusting he will not be led astray.

God does not throw us away just because we are not perfect. He watches over us and even brings others into our lives to help us when we are in need. And at times we are the guide horse, helping others to find their way.
