A reason, a season or a lifetime
Belinda had this among her papers for distribution to her friends
People come into your life for a reason, a
season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which one it is, you will know
what to do for each person.
When someone is in your life for a REASON. It is usually to meet a need you have
expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you
with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually.
They may seem like a godsend, and they are! They are there for the reason you
need them to be. Then, without any wrong doing on your part, or at an
inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the
relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes
they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realise is that our need
has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up
has been answered. And now it is time to move on.
Then people come into your life for a SEASON. Because your turn has come to
share, grow, or learn. They bring you an experience of peace, Or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an
unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season.
LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; things you must build upon in
order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson,
love the person, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships
and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is
Thank you for being a part of my life. Stop
here and just SMILE
"Work like you don't need the money,
Love like you've never been hurt,
And dance like no one is watching".

season and a lifetime" was written by Brian A. "Drew" Chalker.
Like many texts that have travelled the internet some minor variations have
crept into the words she used.
