Lifetime Lessons: Are you there for a Reason, a Season or a Lifetime?

Received an email today from a friend, a 'forward' which I liked. Many of the words ring true. Gently, it explains what life is all about. Felt quite humbled after reading it. I've decided to call it Lifetime Lessons. 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

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

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

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.

How nice this was. I read and reread. Sometimes certain passages fill you with a dozen emotion colliding and vying together. This gave me such a feeling.

Some people are just there and one never knows why they are there. Have you been in that state where you didn't know why someone is there?

I'm glad you chose to share this with us.

Joy always,
