Two Horses

There is a field with two horses in it.

From a distance each looks like every 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 he is blind.

His owner has chose to not have him put down and has made a good home for him. This alone is amazing.

If nearby and listening you will hear the sound of a bell. Looking around for the source of the bell you will see it comes from the smaller horse in the field. Attached to her halter is a small bell. It let's her blind friend know where she is, so he can follow her.

As you stand and watch these two friends, you'll see how she's always checking on him, and that he will listen for her bell, and slowly walk to where she is, trusting that she will not lead him astray.

When she returns to the shelter of the barn each evening, she stops occasionally and looks back, making sure her friend isn't to far behind to hear the bell.

Like the owner of these two horses, God does not throw us away just because we're not perfect or 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 see.

Good friends are like this.............You don't always see them, but you know they are always there. Please listen for my bell and I'll listen for yours. " Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Benefits of Apples

appleAN END TO HAY FEVER: Two apples a week offers defense against ragweed and other autumn allergens. The credit goes to each apple's megadose of quercetin, a bioflavonoid that stabilizes the body's mast cells. This hinders their release of inflammatory histamine, nixing sniffles, wheezing and itchy eyes.

EFFORTLESS SLIMMING:In a Brazilian study, women who ate an apple before meals lost 33% more weight than those who did not. Apples are rich in pectin, a soluble fiber that converts to a sticky substance in the gut. This slows the release of sugar into the bloodstream, delaying satiety by 32%.

TAUGHT, YOUTHFUL SKIN:Anti-inflammatory proanthocyanidins in apple peels are proven to soothe facial redness. Plus, the fruit's rich stores of vitamin C help the body synthesize skin-plumping collagen. Studies suggest that these dual processes can visibly improve skin's texture, firmness and radiance by up to 65% in just 3 weeks. apple
