Two Horses

June 12, 2008
 

Just up the road from 
a 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 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 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 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.

Why I Love My Cat

March 16, 2008

She is always there for me, literally. She follows me wherever I go. She’s a great snuggler. When I hold her I feel comfort.  She talks to me with her eyes. She totally trusts me. She’s beautiful. She has taught me attunement between human and animal. She expects nothing in return except food, water, and a clean litter box. 

Also, I just read on another blog that owning a cat reduces heart attack risk by one third:  http://tippedearclan.wordpress.com/2008/03/13/cat-owners-have-lower-heart-attack-risk-study/

Do you have fish for pets?

Where are the dog people?

Only cat people responded to my post Are You a Cat Person or a Dog Person.  I guess there are no dog lovers on wordpress….

Are You a Cat Person or a Dog Person?

January 16, 2008

I admit outright that I am completely biased, since I have two Maine coon cats,  but here’s what I think. Cats RULE. Dogs are ruled. So cat people, independant themselves, are drawn to  independent felines. . And dog people, perhaps craving devotion (?), are drawn to devoted canines. What’s your take on this?
