Two Horses

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.

Good friends are like that …


Our Service

You should know that while you will get a lot of basic information from this blog and from our website, this is in no way a complete assessment of the topic being discussed. We only touch on the subjects that we think would be of interest to someone considering moving to Costa Rica.

Many of the topics that I choose to write about come from questions presented to me by clients. Others are news that’s happening in Costa Rica.

Some things I write about seem kinda fuzzy, immigration for instance.  When the laws are as confusing as they are, I can’t help but sounding a little confused myself on some of the details.

We do know what we are doing when it comes to relocation. Make no mistake about that.  Our service is a paid service and you get what you pay for when it comes to relocation services.  As I said, many of the topics we just touch on but when you come down as one of our clients you learn all the ins and outs of living in Costa Rica.

You will meet attorneys that give you legal advice and assistance on residency, insurance agents that know all about insurance.  We hook you up with the professionals to handle the things that we are not well versed in.

You can learn in one week what it would take you months to learn by working with my company.  If you don’t believe me, read some of our testimonials on our website or ask for references.


Guardian Angels Organization

The Guardian Angels are an international safety organization in 61 cities around the world. The organization was founded in New York City in 1979 by Curtis Sliwa and now operates throughout the United States as well as Europe, South Africa, Brazil, Japan, the Philippines, and New Zealand.

Sliwa originally created the organization to combat widespread violence and crime on the New York City subways. The organization originally trained members to make citizen’s arrests if they witness a serious crime occurring. This attracted both public praise and official criticism. The organization now focuses on crime prevention through community empowerment and education; running programs and workshops in schools, community centres and businesses. Their trademark Safety Patrols continue throughout the world.

The Guardian Angels official mottos are Dare To Care and Role Models For Real Life.

While Guardian Angels CR has no affiliation with the Guardian Angels of NY, our motto’s are similiar….Dare to Care.  We help people with their relocation to Costa Rica, keeping them out of harms way by unscrupulous persons trying to take advantage of them.  We want to act as mentors, showing the way to get things done in a manner well suiting each client.

We did not take this name because we wanted to be like or associated with the Guardian Angels Organization but rather because we want to be YOUR Guardian Angel and help you along with your relocation process.


Idea of having a guardian angel

Man has always been facinated with the idea of having a guardian angel. The idea that God has thousands of supernatural assistants ready, willing and able to assist us mortals in our hour of need appeals to us and gives the idea of a devine being and Heaven a little more credence.

To believe in the existence of Guardian Angels is the ultimate step of trust in one’s faith, for it means taking control out of human hands and giving it to something that may or may not exist. For those who believe, it is a self-fulfilling choice, for if God’s power derives from belief in him, then his angels also benefit in the same way and are thus able to help those who call on them consciously or not.


I have a Guardian Angel

I have a Guardian Angel who watches over me
She knows everything I do –Where I go, and what I see.
Sometimes she’s on my shoulder, or beside me in the car
I know she’s taking care of me at home, or traveling afar.
The still soft voice I sometimes hear is my Angel, guiding me –
How close I may have come to Death from dangers I could not see!
But my Angel sees me safely through each day, and brings me home.
I feel her constant presence and know I’m not alone.
I pray for help and instantly she’s here, arms open wide
To shelter me from all Life’s hurts and kiss the tears I’ve cried.
You say that you can’t see her? Never mind, I know she’s here –
Her loving arms are wrapped around me, comforting my every fear.
Aren’t we glad that God sends Angels to guide us through the day?
It’s His way of showing us the path when we can’t find the way.
The next time your Angel whispers, listen closely and take heed –
For God has sent it personally to take your hand and lead.
Then when our life on Earth is ended and we greet Eternity,
Our Guardian Angels will escort us to our place at Jesus’ feet.

This woman was skiing down a ski hill that was new to her. Eager to get going, she missed a sign that would have directed her safely. As she turned a corner, suddenly a man dressed all in black – a tall man with a commanding presence — dark hair and eyes, stood right in her line of vision and directed her in a different direction. She told me that there was no way to not obey him and she wondered what a man dressed all in black without skis or boots would be doing up on the hill in the middle of nowhere. His sudden appearance made her fall. And although she was bruised and bumped, she was not seriously hurt. When she looked up to speak to him, she saw that he had disappeared. Not only had he disappeared but there were no tracks in the snow indicating that he had ever been there. When she examined the spot and looked to where she had been headed, she saw that if he had not distracted her when he had, she would have skied right over an outcropping high enough to seriously injure or even kill her. It occurred to her later that this Angel must have worn black so that she would see him clearly against the snow white background of the ski hill. There was no doubt in her mind after seeing no tracks and the sudden disappearance that he was an angel.

My Guardian Angel

My Guardian Angel
a true story by “Fish Chris”

In 1994, while living in Northern Louisiana, I had decided to go on a night time fishing trip by myself. My truck had been having some problems and would occasionally die. Then it would require two people to start it again, one giving it some gas, the other bridging the starter to the frame. I knew it wasn’t very smart to leave on this trip by myself, but being the fishing fool that I am, I said a prayer, and went for it.
I was about half way into the 40 mile trip, and at least 10 miles either direction from any kind of help when my truck died. I coasted to a slow stop, my mind racing about what to do next. I then got out of my truck, and said another prayer…… “Lord, I know I was foolish to attempt this trip by myself with my truck acting up as it has been, but if you can please help me get it started, I will drive it straight home, and I won’t go fishing again until I get it fixed”. As I lifted my head I immediately noticed a brightly lit church to my left across the road, which I had not seen before I bowed my head. “How could I have missed a large, brightly lit church on a pitch black night” ? I asked myself. Then as I turned my head to the right, there was an old pickup truck which I did not hear roll up to within 15 feet of me, even on a gravel driveway. An older black man stepped out of the truck and told me, “Hi, my name is Willy……. I’m your angel and I was sent here to help you”. Having never seen an angel, and not having prayed specifically to receive one, I thought to myself, “What an interesting choice of words”. Of course being the logical guy that I am, I quickly brushed off his statement as just a manner of speaking.
Anyway, in the warmest, friendliest voice, Willy reassured me and with his help, we quickly had my truck started. I thanked Willy and after a sharp U-turn, I was rolling straight back to my home.
The next day I told my mother about this nice old guy named Willy who had helped me out of a very tight spot. She suggested that I should bring him a gift…… maybe some catfish from the pond next to our house. I told her he should be easy to find, as his driveway was right across the street from a brightly lit church.
A few days later, after having my truck fixed, I was once again traveling the same road, as I had done countless times before. I drove extra slow and kept my eyes peeled for the church, but I never saw it…… not on the way to the lake, not on the way home from the lake, not on any of the numerous trips to and from that lake ever after !
Now I have no doubt that Willy really was an angel, sent to me by God, to help me when I needed it the most. I also have no doubt that I will see Willy again, whether in another time of need, or at the gates of heaven to greet me.

With God as my witness,
“Fish Chris”

PS, I have never seen a UFO, and I don’t believe in bigfoot
