Reason, Season or a Lifetime

Why am I Here? Why are You Here?

This arrived in my email inbox this morning, from a reasonably new friend. I hope he is in my life for a Lifetime, at least what remains, since he possesses great wisdom, and values, and helps me be a better person.

Of course, today is the birthday of the dear Woman that I share my Lifetime with, and I hope that our time together is long, and continues in its growth in joy and love. For she definitely inspires me to be better, to love longer, and to persevere amidst trials.

Anyway, read this, please, and enjoy the memories it brings to mind, and think for a moment of the future you have in store, with those who you know were chosen by God to be in your life, for a Reason, a Season, or a Lifetime.
Pay attention to what you read. After you have finished reading it, you will know the reason it was sent to you. Here goes:

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that 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 wrongdoing 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 realize 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.

Some 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 clairvoyant. Thank you for being a part of my life, whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.

Send this to every friend that you have on-line, including the person who sent it to you.
It's not the number of replies you receive back that's important. What's important is taking the time to tell people who matter to you that they matter to you a LOT!
Take a moment, breathe in some Christmas Spirit, and DO IT!
Feel free to pass this on to those people who have mattered in your life.
