Let Him Lead

Two Horses
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 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.

Live simply,
Love generously,
Care deeply,
Speak kindly…….


Walking by faith isn’t always easy and it’s something you have to learn. God isn’t a magic genie. He doesn’t always answer our prayers the way we want but he is always there for us. For us to lean on, to learn from and to trust in.

Be Brave, Just Do Something!

I adore this story! The Homeless Coder

A man who had knowledge was willing to share it. He completely changed someone’s life because he was kind enough to share what he had. He was not worried about someone else becoming better than he was or making more money or getting ahead of him. He shared from his heart and changed a life. That is a huge deal. That is a good man. A great human being.

How can you help someone? Just do it!

The Magical, Friendly, Cheerful, Fun Piano!

I love this idea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I could sit there all day and watch the different people have fun with this piano. All of the people who enjoy it and take part in it are so much fun and many are so talented.

Be Brave, Just Say Something

Sometimes all it takes to make someone’s life better is for you to say something. So just do it. So what if someone yells at you or won’t do what you are suggesting. You don’t know until you try it.

In this instance I am talking about a dog but it could be any animal or human. Speak up and take a chance on making someone’s life better.

For instance “I noticed when I come over to play with your dog she never has any water”.
We are talking about a period of at least ten hours. The dog has water now. Yahoo!

That’s all it took. Of course I did have to broach it nicely. Yes kind of difficult for me to do. Be brave, just do it.

How many children, animals or elderly people can you help by speaking up? Encourage others to do so. If you see a dog who doesn’t have what it needs then ask if you can help in any way. Can you walk it, play with it, provide much-needed water or food? Maybe the owners are in over their head. It’s not the dogs fault. By helping the neighbors you are helping the dog.

Do you notice a neighborhood child at the bus stop without a coat? Or good shoes? Buy whatever and give it to them through the school. Add in a little extra, like fun pencils, paper or whatever you think their age would enjoy.

Does an elderly neighbor need their leaves raked, snow shoveled? Firewood? Oil? Sneak and pay their gas bill or drop off a big bag of groceries for them!

Keep your eyes and ears open there are always people or animals who need help. Sometimes the need may be so large that you must have help, so be it. Sometimes it’s the smallest thing that will make someones life so much better. Whatever it is just do it!!!!!

What a wonderful world this could be if more people would speak up. Far too many people hide and cower away. Don’t mind your own business and you could make a life better or even save one. Don’t leave it for someone else to do, YOU DO IT! Be brave.

Just Part of a Day

Mailman Patrol – A very serious job.



I don’t usually do creepy photos but this really caught my eye as I was walking Darla and I couldn’t believe how much like a mangled hand reaching out of the ground it looked like.
